Bill Berenson is an experienced Fort Worth car wreck attorney who has aggressively represented victims of motor vehicle collisions for over 36 years. He has been named one of the "Top 100 Trial Attorneys" in 2016 by The National Trial Lawyers and one of the "Top Personal Injury Plaintiff's Lawyers" in Fort Worth by Fort Worth Magazine in 2016, and in many previous years.

Bill Berenson was born and raised in Nashville, but got to Texas as fast as he could. He graduated with Honors from the University of Texas at Austin and from the Southern Methodist University School of Law in Dallas in 1979. He began his career working for a well known Fort Worth law firm where he gained invaluable experience trying many lawsuits in court, often representing State Farm and several other insurance carriers. But his heart was on the side of the victims who didn’t have the money to take on these giant companies. So he started his own law firm in 1982 and has successfully practiced personal injury law, with his main office in the River Plaza Tower on University Drive near I-30 ever since.

Mr. Berenson has served on the Board of Directors of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association since 2007 and the Tarrant County Trial Lawyer Association since 1995. He is a Life Member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and a Sustaining Member of the American Association for Justice. Mr. Berenson has taught other injury lawyers across Texas and the United States at legal seminars. He has been involved in many large, high profile cases over his career, most recently, successfully representing a young man who was seriously injured in the controversial Affluenza teen crash in Burleson. 

Serious Car Accidents in Fort Worth

Car accidents are the number one cause of serious injury in Texas. Severe automobile accidents change the lives of the people involved forever. Whether it is due to injury, pain, lost personal capacity, wages and employment advancement, enjoyment of favorite activities, or even the loss of a loved one, the victims of collisions suffer a great deal and must be reimbursed for their losses.

Mr. Berenson is keenly aware of the damage that auto accidents can have on families, careers, and futures. He only handles collision cases. He knows how difficult it can be to have suffered injuries in an auto or truck accident or to have lost a family member in a fatal car crash. Mr. Berenson runs a small, friendly office where he – not a junior lawyer or assistant – meets his clients from the very start and personally works on every aspect of their cases. Every one of those brings out the relentless drive and passion that enables him to run many fast marathons as a hobby in his 50's and early 60's, and which got him his Eagle Scout award when he was just 13 years old. In addition, Mr. Berenson has taught Sunday School and lives by these religious values. He is aggressive, hard working, friendly, and honest – qualities you are no doubt looking for as you select who you want to work with to get you the maximum compensation for your case.

Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

If you have recently been involved in a car or truck accident, you should consult with a good Fort Worth personal injury lawyer. Here are just a few reasons why:

  1. Insurance companies often try and offer accident victims a small settlement to keep them from going to trial and potentially receiving a much larger award. 

  2. Injuries may be more serious than they seem at first. Often the lifelong effects of an auto accident are not realized until years after the accident, after the examination by a doctor trained to look for such injuries. Remember that once you settle a lawsuit you can’t go back and open the case back up and ask for more money. You only get one shot, so you need to make it count.

  3. The road to recovery for an accident victim can be difficult. Bill Berenson knows what hurdles and obstacles accident victims face and has the experience necessary to support accident victims throughout the trial and recovery processes.
