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;
- 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
We are living through unprecedented chaos. Violent protests against racism and injustice coupled with the grim pandemic have rocked our country. Our hearts go out to everyone who is hurting and frightened, especially in the minority communities that are the disproportionately the victims of these two disastrous plagues that have beset the world. So the last thing we needed to see happen this weekend was this horrific crash that took the life of a woman of color.
A 16-year-old male stole a truck and was driving recklessly in a parking lot in north Fort Worth when his truck hit a car. He kept driving and crashed the truck into the wall of the HomeTowne Suites.
An employee who was inside a room named Maria Mancha tragically died. The teen hit-and-ran, was chased to a nearby hotel, and was arrested. We extend our sincere condolences to the family of Ms. Mancha.
Berenson Injury Law has successfully obtained all available insurance proceeds for our client who sustained a serious injury in this car accident in Fort Worth last year.
Mike had served our country honorably and had returned to the workforce. He was driving home from his job when a woman cut him off at an intersection.
He was rushed to the hospital and later had to have several surgeries performed on his arm.
Berenson Injury Law has successfully resolved the highly unusual case for a young man who was driving this commercial truck (the company’s name was deleted) in East Dallas last year.
The dump truck driver in front of Joshua stupidly activated the dump mechanism. As the bed raised, the top grazed a bridge which sheered off a piece of the truck. Our client swerved to avoid the road debris and a collision resulted. He was taken to a hospital and diagnosed with a strained back.
We immediately investigated the scene and obtained critical evidence that we needed to win the case.
We also researched the truck driver and his company and learned that he did not have a commercial driver’s license, but that he did have a criminal history.
Medical bills payment can be a huge problem after a vehicle collision
After you have been in a car or truck crash, you may have been rushed by ambulance to an emergency room. Expensive medical treatment and tests were performed. Worrying about how these medical bills were going to be paid was probably the last thing on your mind. So you will be shocked to find out later that you owe a huge sum of money for your medical bills. This happens often.
Berenson Injury Law has been representing injured Texans for the past 40 years and this can be one of the biggest hassles of the car/truck crash process.
We see one or more of these happening:
- Objections and delays are made by health insurance companies and medical professionals to avoid paying medical bills;
- The hospital or medical providers may be out-of-network; or
- The deductible, copayment, or coinsurance rate is not paid; or
- The patient is required to repay the medical bills later from his settlement or jury verdict.
If this sounds familiar, that is because you were not told any of this at the hospital or by your doctors. You may not find out until months later when you open your mail and see “surprise bills” which can be $10,000 or more. You naturally assumed that the other driver’s insurance company or your health insurance plan would have paid these by now.
The medical bills morass is unfortunately a common problem after a car wreck, especially here in Texas. A recent study showed that we had almost the highest number of these out-of-network charges in the U.S.
If you have health insurance, you probably do not know which hospitals and doctors (other than your PCP) are in-network. You will have no idea what medical procedures cost. Before this happens to you, you should study your plan’s directory and research costs so you will be prepared.
Berenson Injury Law has successfully resolved a case for an 18-wheeler driver who was side-swiped by another tractor-trailer driver. This happened three years ago in Fort Worth early on Halloween morning.
The vehicles bumped where the lanes slowed and merged on Interstate 35 just north of downtown in the construction area (back then). Alfredo’s cab and trailer (which are pictured in the distance) and the other driver’s big rig (in the foreground) showed minor physical damage.
To help those people who are researching a Fort Worth injury lawyer, we wanted to share these five new reviews our clients wrote on Google and Facebook — just in the last 24 hours!
***** Mr. B and his team were amazing from the very beginning until the end. They kept me updated on everything, even when I felt like giving up. I am truly thankful and happy with the results. Mr. B and his team deserve 100 stars!! Thank you for everything!
Happy ending for potentially deadly crash
Berenson Injury Law has successfully resolved a case against the drunk driver and the bar that might have over-served him after a Fort Worth DWI collision in April.
A young woman was driving her car on a Fort Worth interstate late one night. Her boyfriend was a passenger. Suddenly a driver’s worst nightmare happened: a car driving the wrong way crashed into them. And guess what, the young male driver was driving while intoxicated. Without any headlights on.
