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.
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 […]
