1. Stay home! New Year’s Eve is just an excuse for the overconsumption of alcoholic beverages. And with 2020 being such a terrible year, this might make even more people go out and drink even more tonight. They will be celebrating at nightclubs, bars, and restaurants, then drive home and cause a possible fatal DWI accident in Fort Worth.

Not to be a party-pooper, but please stay home tonight due to Covid-19 precautions, bad weather, and just plain common sense.

Our main goal at Berenson Injury Law is to use the civil justice system to get our clients the best possible compensation for their damages. We also try to change the behavior of negligent drivers so that our highways will be less dangerous.

We just filed a lawsuit against a man whose blood alcohol content was an unbelievable 3.5 times the legal limit — at only about 7:00 p.m.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram wrote an excellent article about this tragic case that claimed the life of a man. Publicizing the inevitability of severe criminal punishments and substantial civil judgments can warn others and hold down the chance of another Fort Worth DWI accident like this one.

We often write about what people should do after they are involved in a driving while intoxicated collision since they are so common and hurt so many people.

Shockingly, 30 Americans lose their lives each day, in a DWI crash. That is one every 50 minutes, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

We must stop the madness. Every driving while intoxicated collision is preventable. Tonight is the perfect time to start.

The epidemic of DWIs in DFW is officially out of control

When a judge and police officer were disgracefully jailed last week for driving while intoxicated, you know that we have a crisis. How can people paid to enforce the law break it? Committing DWIs in DFW is outrageous for drivers plus being hypocritical when committed by those supposed to protect us from drunk drivers in the first place.

So what happened and why do we bring this to your attention?

Our roads should be safer since fewer people are driving during the pandemic. But wrongful death numbers from car and truck wrecks have skyrocketed here. North Texas just endured another tragic weekend with six fatality wrecks reported. Most were caused by hit-and-run drivers.

And we have not even gotten to the Thanksgiving-New Years holiday period when alcohol-fueled collisions skyrocket every year.

Fort-Worth-car-accident-how-much-is-it-worthIf you have unfortunately been injured in a Fort Worth car accident, this is probably the first time you have had to deal with the personal injury claims process. So you have questions about your legal rights and how a personal injury lawyer can help you. In my 40 years specializing in personal injury law, the question I get asked the most is how much money do you think I will receive after my medical bills are paid? It’s a great question. I have discussed this on my web site and blog posts, in a book and seminars I have written and taught to injury attorneys.

How to calculate how much money you might receive from a Fort Worth car accident

Since every car and truck wreck is different, there is no way to state one answer. The real answer can only be learned after the injured person files a lawsuit and a jury returns a verdict for his or her damages (but even then, the verdict can be and often is appealed to a higher court).

Tamme-MBerenson Injury Law resolved a broken nose and injured neck case for $205,000. The Fort Worth car accident happened in April of last year when a pickup truck rear ended a woman’s Mini Cooper.

She was rushed to the hospital and underwent nasal surgery several weeks later.

Some of her medical bills were paid by her health insurance, which creates a valuation problem when a personal injury lawyer is attempting to settle the claim or argue the case to a judge and jury. The total amount that can be awarded for medical bills is lessened by the “paid vs. incurred statute”¬†and Escobedo decision from the Supreme Court.
