Monetary Compensation After a Spine Injury 

 Posted on November 07, 2022 in Car Accidents

Dallas personal injury lawyerSpine injuries are one of the most debilitating injuries that can occur after a car crash. The spine is made up of a series of bones, discs, and nerves that run from the base of the skull to the pelvis. These bones, discs, and nerves work together to support the weight of the body, protect the spinal cord, and allow for movement. When the spine is damaged in a car crash, it can cause pain, paralysis, and even death.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a car crash and have suffered a spine injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you pursue the compensation you need.

Elements of a Successful Spine Injury Claim in Texas

Texas personal injury law allows car accident victims to recover compensation for their injuries if another driver was at fault. Negligent driving is often the root cause of severe car accidents. Spine injuries may result from:

What You Should Know About Distracted Driving Accidents

 Posted on October 27, 2022 in Truck Accidents

Dallas distracted driver accident lawyerFew things are more frightening than spotting a driver who is staring down at their phone or another distraction headed right for you, oblivious to your presence. Distracted driving accidents can be terrifying - and are generally completely preventable. The frustrating thing about car accidents involving an inattentive driver is how easily the at-fault party could have prevented the accident just by paying attention to the road. Distracted driving is not only dangerous, but it may be illegal in certain scenarios. Using a cell phone while driving may earn Texas drivers a ticket except in certain circumstances. If you were injured by a driver who was distracted by their cell phone or any other attention-grabbing stimuli other than the road, they may be financially liable to you for your injuries and other damages. It is generally best to work with an attorney while pursuing compensation for a distracted driving accident.

 Posted on October 13, 2022 in Car Accidents

North Texas car wreck injury attorneyPeople do not generally leave home expecting to become involved in a motor vehicle accident due to another person’s carelessness. It can be difficult to remember what legal obligations you may have during an unforeseen emergency. However, it is important that all Texas drivers are aware of what the law says regarding their duties following a motor vehicle accident. These laws are in place to ensure that accidents can be properly investigated and legally addressed. Failing to follow the law during the aftermath of a car accident could potentially affect your claim.

Acting in compliance with Texas law may be helpful to your claim as your attorney begins to collect evidence and prepare your case.

What Texas Law Says About Your Obligations Following a Motor Vehicle Accident

Most Common Injuries in High-Speed Car Accidents

 Posted on September 22, 2022 in Car Accidents

Dallas County highway accident lawyerInjuries sustained in slow-speed accidents can still be dangerous. When an accident occurs at high speeds, however, the probability of severe injuries increases astronomically. Human bodies were not made to endure the type of force involved in high-speed highway accidents. It is rare for everyone involved to walk away unharmed after such an accident. More commonly, an ambulance is needed due to the severity of injuries. 

If you were injured in a high-speed accident, your injuries might be lasting and painful. You may also find that you have become overburdened by the expenses associated not only with medical care, but with ordinary expenses after a prolonged absence from work. But you may be entitled to compensation for these costs and losses. 

Injuries Commonly Sustained in Highway Accidents

A majority of high-speed collisions take place on highways and interstates, although they may occur anywhere if another party is driving at excessive speeds. Common injuries resulting from high-speed accidents include:

How Delivery Drivers Cause Accidents

 Posted on September 14, 2022 in Truck Accidents

Dallas delivery truck crash lawyerDelivery drivers go a long way toward making our lives more convenient. With everyone back to their post-pandemic busy schedules, you may not always have time to physically go to a store to search for the things you need. Using services like Amazon or UPS and FedEx can be much easier than driving around town looking for an item. The same is true for food deliveries - many families do not have the time or energy to cook every night. Parents can simply order dinner from their cell phones rather than loading young children into the car to go to a restaurant. 

However, there is no guarantee that all delivery drivers are as skilled behind the wheel as one would hope. These jobs often have high turnover, and drivers are often forced to make an unreasonable amount of stops in a short time. If you or your child have been injured by a delivery driver, you may be entitled to compensation.

What If My Employer Does Not Have Work Comp Insurance and I Get Hurt?

 Posted on August 29, 2022 in Work Accidents

Dallas workplace injury lawyerMost people who work in riskier jobs are very familiar with Workers’ Compensation. It is a very well-known program that allows workers who get hurt on the job to have things like their medical bills and lost wages covered. Texas is fairly unique in that employers are not required to subscribe to Workers’ Compensation. Most other states do not give companies any choice in the matter. In Texas, however, many employers choose to forego Workers’ Compensation and opt for a different type of insurance. If you get injured at work, you should be covered under your employer’s insurance if they do not use Workers’ Compensation. If you were hurt at work and your company is a non-subscriber, you may have a few extra challenges while pursuing compensation. Jerry D. Andrews, P.C. is ready to fight for compensation on your behalf. 

The Differences Between Workers’ Comp and Self-Insured Claims 

Workers’ Compensation was designed and intended to create a streamlined process for injured workers to file a claim and start being compensated. Dealing with a non-subscriber can be a little more difficult. Rather than working with a public program, you will be up against a private insurance company.

How a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Affect Your Life and Career

 Posted on July 27, 2022 in Uncategorized

Carrollton Personal Injury LawyerSome lines of work are inherently dangerous. If you work in construction, or in a factory around heavy machinery, your risk of getting injured at work is very high. Many injuries that happen on job sites are relatively minor and will heal. Injuries like sprains or some broken bones often improve after a period of rest so that the injured person can go back to work. Other injuries are much more serious. Traumatic brain injuries can have major lifelong effects. Every traumatic brain injury is unique. The particular effects you may suffer depend on which parts of the brain are most affected by the injury. In many cases, a worker who suffers a TBI will not be able to come back to work and may need permanent disability payments through Workers’ Compensation or through your company, if they are a non-subscriber

Top 3 Causes of Rear-End Collisions in Dallas

 Posted on July 13, 2022 in Car Accidents

dallas-car-crash-attorney.jpgRear-end collisions can range in severity from very mild, like a bump in a parking lot, to devastating, like when a semi-truck hits a sedan. The driver in back is nearly always responsible for the car accident, as they are generally the one who could have prevented the crash. The driver in front is usually powerless to avoid being struck from behind. Head, neck, and spinal cord injuries are somewhat common after a particularly hard rear-end impact. Wrist and arm injuries are somewhat less common, but likely to occur if the occupants of the front vehicle saw the crash coming and attempted to brace themselves. The driver in back is almost guaranteed to be found negligent outside of very particular circumstances where the front driver did something to deliberately force the collision. If you were rear-ended, an attorney may be able to help you recover compensation.

How to Handle a Driver With Road Rage

 Posted on June 16, 2022 in Car Accidents

dallas-car-crash-attorney.jpgEveryone has encountered a driver with road rage at some point. If someone aggressively cuts you off, makes rude hand gestures, uses their vehicle to block your path, or yells at you out their window, you are likely dealing with road rage. Studies show that since the pandemic began, instances of road rage have increased quite a bit. Perhaps this is because people became accustomed to the lighter traffic and are having difficulty adjusting to the return of rush hour. Whatever the reason, all drivers should know how to respond to road rage when it is directed at them. While it is not always possible to prevent a road-raging driver from causing a car accident and hurting you, taking the right steps can help keep you safer before, during, and after a road rage crash. If you were injured by a driver with road rage, our lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation.
