This afternoon we enjoyed meeting with three women for our favorite part of our jobs: handing our clients large settlement checks!
This horrible pandemic is made worse by all the reckless drivers in Dallas-Fort Worth who keep crashing into innocent victims and injuring them. You might assume that with fewer people on the roads, your chances of safely getting from Point A to Point B are excellent.
But there are still thousands of crashes each month in North Texas. Statistics for this year are not yet available, but last year there were close to 90,000 reported collisions in Tarrant and Dallas Counties. That is a frightening number. And now, some drivers are speeding faster and driving even more dangerously than ever with less vehicles to slow them down.
This post is for the benefit of those who are researching the best Fort Worth car accident lawyer to hire for their case. Knowing about their past results and reading their reviews is one of the best ways to help you decide.
We are blessed to have so many wonderful clients and are honored that they have written over 450 5-star reviews.
Our young client (pictured above) was injured when a driver failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into her car on Forest Park Boulevard, not far from our main office on University Drive. She went to her family doctor, then to a chiropractor 10 times with a neck and back strain/sprain.
This was a very small case that we easily handle — except for the fact that the other driver’s tiny, difficult to work with company filed for receivership (bankruptcy) in March. We discussed how this affected hers and other clients’ cases in a blog post in March.
We continued to fight for our client and were able to get her a good recovery, which was not easy. Our client was thrilled and very nicely wrote this 5-star review on Google:
Another young client was seriously hurt when an incredibly drunk driver crashed into the Jeep her mother was driving in Northwest Texas. The collision was so violent that it knocked the Jeep off the road, then it rolled over several times before coming to a stop upside down. Then the drunk did what most do in these cases: he hit and ran. Fortunately, state troopers chased him down and arrested him. Let’s hope they throw the book at him and keep him from driving on our Texas roads.
We handle a lot of DWI crashes and they anger us more than any other kind of collision because they are so easily preventable:
If you don’t, you are breaking the law and possibly killing someone because you are stupid. It’s that simple.
Our client had to be rushed to a hospital, but fortunately only suffered minor injures. She never went to a doctor or therapist for additional medical treatment.
We were still able to make the other driver’s two insurance companies pay maximum damages. We also maxed out the two policies for her mother.
Then we made our client more money by slashing the hospital’s bill. This resulted in an even bigger recovery for our client. She was very happy and wrote this 5-star review:
“I have been satisfied with all my services.
Shannon has been very lovely and Mr. Berenson has been great.”
A grandmother (and the mother of a former client) was driving her two young grandsons in Arlington when a woman in a SUV tried to beat them through an intersection. The three were taken to a hospital with head, neck and back strains that quickly resolved. The three cases turned out very well and our clients were very happy.
In her 5-star review, the driver wrote that she was very pleased with our firm’s professionalism, quality, responsiveness, and value.
It isn’t just the personal attention, friendliness, and respect we give to each client. It’s the results that we have delivered for the past 40 years. It’s what what we live for.
How do you measure results? From a financial perspective, we do the best job on these two fronts:
(1) by working hard to force the insurance companies to pay or juries to award; and
(2) by saving our clients as much money as possible for medical bills that legally have to be paid from the settlement or verdict, especially for hospital, Medicare or Medicare, or health insurance company subrogation liens.
Just doing one or the other is not enough. Together, these two projects pay off big.
We also cut and even waive our fees and do not charge our clients for various expenses.
Today, we saved these women and their families a small fortune. (We have not used their names or other identifying information to protect their privacy.)
