When you start your day, the last thing you are thinking about is getting into a car accident. You expect to go about your daily routine and come back home to be with your family each day.

No matter how it happens, vehicle accidents are scary and no two are the same. Our attorneys handle them all.
In an accident with another personal vehicle, you will be dealing with their insurance company. If the other driver was at fault, you should contact legal assistance before speaking with or giving anything to an insurance company. Rarely do they have your best interest at heart, as they are looking to pay the least amount of money possible. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run or hit by a driver with no insurance, we can help you with your next steps.
Getting hit by a commercial truck can be devastating. These large trucks usually weigh much more than regular vehicles and can cause damage and injuries too many on the roadway at once. In the aftermath of an accident, you will want to know if the driver was properly trained and if the truck was adequately maintained. If the company skipped corners or their driver was reckless, you could be owed compensation beyond what insurance is willing to cover.
If you are one of the many motorcycle enthusiasts we have in Texas, we know you take steps to be safe on the roadway. Unfortunately, many drivers are reckless when they are around motorcyclists. Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating because a cyclist doesn’t have the same protection as a person in a vehicle.
With the rise of ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft, we are seeing more and more incidences of their drivers getting into accidents. While most rides are safe, we know that these drivers are not as regulated as a taxi or public transportation drivers. Now, ridesharing companies are beginning to deliver food as well. If you are in an accident caused by a ridesharing driver, we will help you figure out your next steps.
Sometimes, you aren’t even in a vehicle when an accident happens. We love walking and biking the streets in and around Dallas, but reckless drivers can cause devastating injuries if they hit a pedestrian or a cyclist.
Many accidents that are caused by someone else are really just accidents. Maybe, they didn’t see a yield sign or didn’t check their blind spot. In other cases, the behavior of drivers rises to be negligent and reckless. If a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, they are much more likely to cause accidents that lead to injuries or fatalities.
With more and more technology coming into our lives, drivers are often distracted. Many people think that it is harmless to look at or send a quick text, but taking their eyes off the road for just a few seconds can have deadly consequences.
Injuries from a car accident can put you in the hospital. Common injuries range from bruises to broken bones. Sometimes, major internal injuries and head trauma occur. If you have to have surgery to repair damage, the recovery process may be long. Sometimes, rehabilitation may be necessary. If you need long-term care or are disabled, your ability to work may be curtailed.
All of this could put you and your family in financial jeopardy. While insurance may cover some of your costs, it may not cover lost income or cover your long-term care needs.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.

Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.

It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
There is no denying that helmets save lives and prevent major injuries in motorcycle accidents, yet there is no requirement in Dallas that says motorcyclists must wear one. That may change. Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]
We expect our leaders to be responsible, examples that show the community the correct way to do things. That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]
In late February, a Dallas deputy was injured after a driver collided with two Dallas County police cars in a hit-and-run incident. The two police cars were blocking two lanes of traffic due to a stalled tractor-trailer. The 2005 Dodge truck struck both vehicles and then fled the scene. There was a deputy in each […]
Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
