Texas is a large state with many roads and unfortunately, many serious and fatal car accidents occur on these roads each year. In 2017 there were 3,721 car accident fatalities in Texas and 110 fatalities were right here in Fort Worth. Being a cautious and safe driver helps in avoiding these accidents, but it does not help when other drivers on the road do not exercise that same safety and caution while driving. There are some common fatal car accident scenarios reported by the Texas Department of Transportation described below.

We will also help you gather information related to injuries and damages such as property damage, medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, loss of consortium, disability, and disfigurement. This information will help us value your case to determine an amount that will compensate you for your losses. Wrongful death and survivor actions are often brought in fatal car accident cases, sometimes together and sometimes separately depending on the parties to the actions.

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.

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 […]
