We handle many kinds of injury law, as long as the injury was due to the intentional act, fault of another or the dangerous nature of the product or premises. Although located in Arlington, we accept personal injury lawsuit cases from all over Texas as long as the case meets our criteria for being a catastrophic injury or wrongful death case. We accept cases outside Texas as long as the injured party is a Texas resident.
If the case involves catastrophic bodily injury or death, we accept several types of car accident cases, car/truck collisions, boating accidents, dog bites, airplane crashes, motorcycle cases, school bus wrecks, train crashes, dangerous medical devices, bad drug cases, talcum powder cases, drunk driver cases, texting cases, pedestrian cases, dram shop cases, wrongful death cases, sexual assault cases, hazing cases, carbon monoxide poisoning, passenger claims, injury or death claims against the government, dangerous premises cases, and on the job third party claims or non workers compensation injuries. We are experienced in traumatic brain injury cases, RSD injuries, spinal injuries, and other injuries. Even if the case was an intentional act, there may be employer liability or substantial assets to cover the damages. If there is a life insurance policy that will not pay death benefits or accidental death benefits, we may be able to help. If a lawyer was negligent in handling a personal injury or wrongful death claim, we will consider making a professional negligence claim against the lawyer.
Our requirements for accepting a new case are (1) death or catastrophic injury, (2) intentional or negligent conduct, and (3) insurance coverage or substantial unencumbered assets from which to collect the judgment or settlement.
Most of our clients have trauma type injuries, such as spinal injuries, broken bones, joint injuries, brain injury, and internal injuries. Many of our clients have permanent injuries and will suffer from those the rest of their lives. Some of our clients must use a cane, walker, or wheel chair for the rest of their lives.
