We recognize that sometimes fatal accidents happen and nobody was at fault and it really was an accident. We also know that sometimes, other drivers are reckless on the roadways.
When another driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, they are much more likely to cause a fatal accident. Their irresponsible behavior is a hazard to anyone on the road around them. Not only should they be held liable, but so should anyone who knew they were intoxicated and continued to serve them. In Texas, there are dram shop laws that allow servers and bartenders to be held liable if they served alcoholic beverages to someone who is obviously intoxicated and that person proceeds to hurt or kill someone.
Drivers who are distracted by their phones or other devices can also be held liable for injuries and fatalities they cause. Many people think that taking their eyes off the road to send a text message or watch a video won’t hurt anyone. We know better. Driving while distracted can be just as deadly as driving while intoxicated.
In the aftermath of a fatal accident, surviving family members have so much to deal with. After the funeral services are over and the initial shock wears away, you will have many questions. Losing the income of a loved one can have devastating financial consequences for your family as well.

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.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.

As evident from the experience of several […]

In fact, an estimated 250,000 people will ride Dallas’s public transportation system every day. However, for as convenient as they are, buses can also be very dangerous because they are large vehicles that are difficult […]
Certain dog breeds are very frightening to look at, let alone be attacked by. When you see a dog of a dangerous breed, be it the pit bull or Rottweiler, on a leash with its dog owner, you have at least some sort of reassurance that the dog might not be able to bite you […]
Some might say that it is impossible to stay concentrated on driving at all times. There is always something that distracts you to a certain degree. A stunning woman in a mini-dress crossing the road. A car accident that you pass by. But more often, a notification on your phone. More than 92 percent of […]
The aftermath of a car accident is often confusing and stressful, making the process of determining who was at fault difficult. It’s made even more difficult when you realize that fault is determined separately by insurance companies, law enforcement agencies, and courts of law. If you believe the other driver was negligent and caused the […]
