No Charge for Office Expenses, Including Police Reports
Physical pain, mobility limitations and the financial strain of a car crash can be exhausting and stressful. The red tape involved in pursuing your legal rights adds unnecessary delays and frustrations to an already difficult situation.
Berenson Injury Law shoulders some of that burden for you. We handle each task involved in recovering compensation so you can concentrate on recovering from your accident.
Bill Berenson is a Texas Board Certified personal injury trial attorney who focuses exclusively on auto accident recovery. Because we have solely concentrated on this one area of practice for the past 40 years, we have refined our processes at every stage to efficiently and thoroughly prepare each case.
One of the first things we do on every case is to go to the Fort Worth Police Department, the Dallas Police Department, the Texas Highway Patrol Division, and other law enforcement agencies to obtain crash reports for our clients. We know you are in pain, may have had your car totaled or it is being repaired, and have enough to deal with after your car crash. Once we receive the report, Bill Berenson then discusses the details of the report and advises you of next steps during a free case evaluation. You are able to explore your options for recovery with the assistance of an auto accident attorney in the Fort Worth area without taking any financial risks.
We also do not charge our clients for our internal expenses necessary to prosecute the case, including photocopying, mailing correspondence by certified mail, delivering documents by Federal Express, mileage, faxes, and many other items that can cost you significant sums, up to hundreds of dollars depending on the complexities of the case. If a lawsuit must be filed, we will discuss expenses such as court costs, deposition fees, and other court-related costs and give you an estimate of what we anticipate these expenses to be so that you are kept fully informed.What is an Auto Accident Report and Why Do You Need One?
Even if your crash is relatively minor, you should always call police to file a report. The responding officers give a neutral, professional opinion as to what happened and who was to blame. They assess the crash scene, noting such possible factors as weather, street conditions, visual obstructions and driver error. They also record the vehicular damage, including a diagram that shows where and how badly your car was damaged.
During this vital initial investigation, officers look for signs of alcohol use, exhaustion or distracted driving that might have played a role in the crash. They may issue traffic citations for driving infractions, such as running a red light, failing to yield, swerving between lanes or tailgating, or further investigate suspicions of drunk driving. An auto accident lawyer can help Fort Worth residents build a case based on this type of information.
In addition, the officers gather important insurance and contact information from all drivers involved in the collision. You need this information to file a claim against the other driver’s insurance policy or to sue the negligent driver for damages. In addition, your insurance company requires you to submit a crash report with your claim against your own policy.Learn How to Get Your Free Crash Report
