COVID-19 UPDATE 

Pursuant to the Stay at Home Order signed Tuesday, March 24, 2020 by the County Judge of Tarrant County, our office has made more changes.  Our doors are locked, but we are working hard from our respective homes.  Our firm has cutting edge technology, utilizing the Cloud for our document storage, database and computing.  We are also paperless, so that we all have access to all the documents for each file.  In addition, our new phones are high tech so we can do everything from home that we could at the office.  I doubt that our clients will notice any difference in our great client service.  The only thing we cannot do is meet in person with our clients as long as the Order is in effect. 

We will continue expediting our claims and when we make a recovery approved by our client we will continue to expedite the disbursement process.  We are all available by phone, email and Zoom video conferencing. 

As long as the doctors’ offices remain open our clients can get the treatment they need.  As long as the insurance adjusters work from home, we can still make our demands and negotiate settlements. 

For our cases in litigation, there may be some delay in hearings and trials, but that is beyond our control.  However, we are trying to make it possible to do depositions, mediations, etc. 

We hope this Shelter In Place Order ends soon; however, our firm will continue to provide the absolute best legal services possible.

Stay Safe!

Injuries in Highway Automobile Accidents

  • Brain injury
  • Whiplash
  • Head trauma
  • Broken neck or spine
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injury

The Causes of Auto Accidents on Highways

High speeds and congested traffic in particular are unique to highway driving and can be significant contributing factors to the likelihood of having a car accident. Driving at high speeds and traffic congestion can also increase the risk and severity of damages to drivers, passengers, and vehicles involved in an accident. In addition to high speeds and congestion, other possible causes of car accidents on highways include:

  • Driver distraction
  • Driving above the speed limit or too fast for road conditions
  • Reckless driving
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Driver error
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Driving while intoxicated
