We discuss our results here occasionally to give people who may be searching for a personal injury attorney to know the results we are capable of achieving.

Almost every Texas personal injury case has been altered by the pandemic. Going to court is far different now. For example, it is impossible to imagine the Texas Supreme Court (pictured above) holding a hearing on Zoom earlier this year. What does the future look like for legal proceedings?

A Texas Personal Injury Case During the Pandemic

Back when things were normal, Texas courts conducted about 200 jury trials a week. People that testified had no fear of getting sick and infecting others.

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).

Another great month for Berenson Injury Law

We have been fighting harder than ever during the pandemic to get our clients the money they deserve.

We achieved many excellent results last month that we wanted to share since we are told by car or truck accident victims that they chose us after comparing our results and hundreds of five-star reviews.

Maximum Denton County settlement obtained

Our clients were driving their SUV on Interstate 35 in Denton County in December of 2017 when traffic came to an unexpected stop. They were rear-ended by a young man driving a company van.

The wife was rushed to a hospital complaining of pain to her head and neck. CT scans showed that she had fractured her C2 disc. The husband fractured his right leg and injured his right arm. Several months later, she had to have her neck fused.

Can an unbelted passenger win their Texas car accident case?

Were you injured in a crash where another driver was at fault but you were not wearing a seat belt? If so, you may be wondering if you are allowed to pursue a Texas car accident case to recover your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. This post examines Texas seat belt laws and how they can alter or eliminate injury claims.

This afternoon we enjoyed meeting with three women for our favorite part of our jobs: handing our clients large settlement checks!

This horrible pandemic is made worse by all the reckless drivers in Dallas-Fort Worth who keep crashing into innocent victims and injuring them. You might assume that with fewer people on the roads, your chances of safely getting from Point A to Point B are excellent.

But there are still thousands of crashes each month in North Texas. Statistics for this year are not yet available, but last year there were close to 90,000 reported collisions in Tarrant and Dallas Counties.  That is a frightening number. And now, some drivers are speeding faster and driving even more dangerously than ever with less vehicles to slow them down.

Drunk driving is a huge problem here, even during the pandemic

Drunk driving wrecks are the number one cause of fatalities on our Texas roads. They are usually high speed collisions often caused by immature men driving huge pickup trucks. Like almost every vehicle collision, they are 100% preventable.

As a personal injury lawyer who has specialized in motor vehicle collisions for over 40 years, Bill Berenson has represented far too many victims of drunk driving wrecks, including the horrific “affluenza teen” case where his client was tragically paralyzed for life and four people tragically died.

Terrifying crash has a happy ending

We are pleased that we were able to get the maximum amount of $80,000.00 paid to the young woman driving this car in Fort Worth only five weeks ago. We will also get her another $2,500.00 from her Personal Injury Protection policy.

Unfortunately, a young man in a pick-up truck failed to stop at a stop sign and t-boned her car. The impact pushed the car off the road where it plunged head-first into this drainage canal. Needless to say, she was seriously injured. 

Last summer our client injured his foot at a recreational facility outside of Fort Worth. We went to work immediately and

  • investigated the scene and obtained critical evidence including witness statements and photographs;
  • worked with his doctors, health insurance carrier, and employer to make sure he got the medical treatment he needed;Client-on-crutches
  • located a secondary health insurance policy;
  • gave our client a large loan since he could not perform his physical job. And we never charge interest, not wanting to add to our clients’ financial burden (and it is outlawed in the Bible);
  • researched similar cases across the country and contacted attorneys who had handled them to get more information;
  • contested his health insurance company’s attempt to be repaid for the medical bills it had paid;
  • kept our client and the insurance companies updated with case developments; and
  • sent a lawsuit petition and discovery documents we were about to file in court to the business’s insurance company.

For confidentiality reasons, we are not permitted to disclose further information.

The excellent results

Mr. Berenson entered into lengthy negotiations and was able to make the insurance company pay $180,000.00.

Then he cut down medical bills that had to be repaid due to subrogation from $33,000.00 to $21,000.00.

He also cut his legal fee and expenses so his client would get more money.

His client received $100,000.00 in his pocket and was thrilled. Continue reading
