COVID-19 UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

The most maddening thing about being in a car accident in Fort Worth — or anywhere in Texas — is that it was easily avoidable. It would not have happened if the other driver had followed basic traffic laws.

But sadly our number of motor vehicle crashes is soaring along with our sky-rocketing population. What used to be a sleepy Cowtown when Mr. Berenson moved here back in 1979 after graduating from SMU Law School in Dallas is suddenly the 12th largest city in the country. Almost one million people live in Fort Worth and there are 7,500,000 in the Metroplex — and more every day.

Cattle ranches are now bustling suburbs.  A sprawling new subdivision in North Fort Worth with 10,000 houses was just announced. But more people = more vehicles = more roads = more collisions. And to make the chances of being injured even higher, it seems that almost every one has an oversized truck or SUV and and is texting as they race around town.

IMG-2035If you have been injured in a car or truck crash, you may be reading this because you are searching for a good Fort Worth car accident lawyer. You need someone to help you recover your damages as quickly as possible so you can return to your old life.

There are many personal injury attorneys here to choose from. How can you know who will do the best job and get you the compensation you want? Learning about their results and whether their clients were pleased are two of the best ways to decide.

We go above and beyond for our clients

Bill Berenson only handles car, truck, tractor-trailer, motorcycle, and pedestrian crash cases. He has successfully practiced personal injury law in Fort Worth for the last 41 years.

Here are just a few of his client’s stories from the past few months.

Steve

This nice man who lives in south Tarrant County was driving last year for his job. Suddenly a large commercial vehicle crashed over the interstate’s barrier. Steve (the names and reviews have been changed to protect the identities of our clients) slammed on his brakes. But he could not avoid hitting the trailer laying on its side. However the police and eyewitnesses blamed another driver who had cut in front of the 18-wheeler. Steve’s foot was badly injured and he had to have surgery. We jumped into action. We sent our accident reconstruction expert to the scene and conducted our own thorough investigation of the scene and the two vehicles and did other legal work. Last week Mr. Berenson attended a mediation with Steve and made the insurance company pay a substantial amount (the amount is confidential at the request of the company’s attorney). Our client will receive approximately $100,000 after medical and legal bills. This case just settled but Steve said he was working on a 5 star review.


 

Susan

Our client was driving home when a vehicle crashed into her car. But hit-and-runs are rampant in North Texas and the other driver took off. Fortunately another driver chased him down. But the police officer wrote down the wrong VIN number and it took a detailed investigation to learn who the real driver was. We got good news: the vehicle was owned by a company, which meant that it had higher insurance limits. Almost all crashes are caused by individuals who purchase the required coverage in the amount of $30,000 for any one person they injure or kill. Even if the personal injury lawyer goes to trial and obtains a larger verdict, it is never paid by the at-fault driver over the amount of the insurance policy. Substantial payments to people injured in a car wreck are rare. Susan hurt her neck, back, and knee and had to undergo medical treatment, including several steroid injections, to alleviate her pain. We worked hard and obtained a recovery of $113,000, then cut her medical bills. After her expenses were deducted, Susan received $50,100 two weeks ago.

We have included reviews from on and other sites from our clients.

 “Very professional, helpful to any concerns. Helped me throughout the whole process. I will definitely recommend to family and friends. I wanted to thank Mr. Berenson for doing his best and help me get my treatment to get back on my feet.”

Fort-Worth-tractor-trailer-crash-1

Two women and their three children were driving on Loop 820 when they were rear-ended by an 18-wheeler. But the driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay them for their medical treatment and other damages. The women hired us so they could be fairly compensated after their Fort Worth tractor-trailer crash.

We went to work immediately and

  • conducted an investigation of the scene
  • researched the driver and his company
  • put them on notice and demanded that all evidence be preserved

Paula’s story

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.
