After you are in a car, truck, or 18-wheeler wreck, you will need medical treatment so you can heal. But it is expensive and you may not know how to get your medical bills paid. You naturally assume that the other driver and their insurance company are going to pay them quickly.

But it can take some time for the possible payers — the other driver’s automobile insurance, your health insurance, your car insurance, and others — to decide if they are going to pay you. Then they have to look at the medical records and medical bills and decide how much they want to pay. This is often a slow, complicated, and unfair process that affects every car and truck collision.

Unfortunately injured people need to wait to negotiate a settlement or obtain a jury verdict until the possible payers obtain this information:

Berenson Injury Law has filed suit against a major interstate bus company and its driver on behalf of a man who was seriously injured in a collision west of Fort Worth.

Our law firm and others in Texas have alleged that the defendants’ negligence caused a catastrophic collision and personal injuries in September.

As the bus proceeded through a controlled intersection marked by flashing yellow lights, a pickup truck failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into the bus. It flipped over and slid down the highway before finally coming to a rest.

This is probably the best walking photograph of all time. Maybe some of us Baby Boomers have this etched into our brains as we have been trying to get some exercise during the unending pandemic. But just crossing the street should not be the cause of a pedestrian injury.

Unfortunately, this is more common every year. In 2019, 668 Texans and 6,227 Americans lost their lives when they were on foot, the highest numbers in three decades. One would have been too many.

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.

Berenson Injury Law has been working harder than ever during the pandemic to fight for our clients. We are upset that economic times are worse than ever for many people. We also know that at the same time, insurance companies are increasingly denying, minimizing, and delaying payment for the damages their bad drivers cause to innocent motorists.

But our personal injury law firm specializes in vehicle crashes and knows how to get the job done. Mr. Berenson is routinely working 10 – 12 hours a day and on weekends. Hard work pays off!

Here are the results of 8 cases we have successfully resolved — just in the last 8 days:

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.

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.

Child deaths are incredibly devastating. Why is Texas number one in this horrible statistic and why aren’t we doing more to stop them?

Today the Star Telegram sadly reported that Texas has ranked #1 in the country over the past 30 years for child deaths in hot cars and trucks. We have lost 135 of our youngest Texans during that time and the country has lost almost 1,000 small children due to the criminal negligence of their drivers.

Here’s another terrible fact: Texas somehow suffers twice as many of these tragedies as California, but they have 10 million more people than we do.
