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!

What Causes Rollover Car Accidents?

Rollover car accidents can be caused by many things, such as driver error. Or, they may occur as a result of a vehicular defect.

Some common causes include:

  • Distracted driving: Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of all car accidents and most drivers have been guilty of driving while distracted at some point in their lives. Distracted driving occurs anytime a person doesn't fully pay attention to the road while driving. All it takes is a second to change the radio station, glance at your child in the backseat, answer a text, talk to passengers, or reach for something to miss seeing a hazard on the road. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to a rollover accident.
  • Driving over the speed limit or faster than what is safe for road conditions: Rollover accidents may also be caused by driving over the speed limit, especially when taking sharp corners. Sometimes a person may not be driving over the posted speed limit, but he or she may be driving too fast for road conditions, like when it's raining, which can lead to rollover accidents. 
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol: Drugs and alcohol both impair a person's reaction times, judgment, and overall ability to safely drive. Driving under the influence is dangerous and can result in a rollover accident.
  • Driving a vehicle with a high center of gravity: Cars with higher centers of gravity, like SUVs, pickup trucks, and vans are, by nature, more likely to rollover than vehicles with lower centers of gravity.
  • Vehicular or product defect: Not all rollover accidents are the fault of the driver. In some cases, there may be a defect within the vehicle, such as malfunctioning brakes or steering, or a defect within a product necessary for the operation of the vehicle, such as the tires or brake pads.

Rollover Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries

Rollover accidents can cause serious injuries, even death. Some victims of rollover accidents may suffer permanent damage and may not be able to return to work or do the things they used to enjoy. Injuries may range from mild to severe and may include:

  • Bruises and lacerations: Bruises and lacerations, or cuts, almost always occur in rollover accidents. Bruises and lacerations may be small or large and are often accompanied by other injuries.
  • Broken bones: Broken bones are common in many car accidents, including rollover accidents. Any bone can be broken in a rollover accident, but some common ones include the legs, feet, ankles, arms, hands, and back.
  • Neck injuries: Neck injuries are a serious risk of rollover car accidents. Neck injuries may include such injuries as whiplash, nerve damage, or a broken neck.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Some victims of rollover car accidents suffer spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries may be minor or more severe, potentially causing paralysis or other permanent disability.
  • Head and traumatic brain injuries: Rollover car accidents often lead to people experiencing significant impact to the head. This can lead to serious head injuries, such as skull fractures or permanent brain damage.
