Life After a Serious Collision in Dallas

Were you injured in a head-on collision? Sadly, head-on collisions take place in Texas more often than you would like to think, and they often result in severe injury, brain injury, or death.

A serious collision can change your life in more ways than you think. Injured victims commonly suffer from:

During recovery, you may have to miss weeks of work and forfeit part of your salary. You could face mounting medical bills, the costs of long-term physical therapy, and the hassle of finding another means of transportation.

The Law Office of WT Johnson has recovered more than $ 98,000,000 in damages on behalf of clients. It's difficult to put a price on our abilities or life, but receiving monetary damages often alleviates the stress of paying the bills and receiving the required follow-up treatment that will help you get your life back.

The relationships our clients have with our office gives them peace of mind and the necessary time to focus on recovery while we handle the case.

Collisions Resulting in Wrongful Death

It may take only a fraction of a second for a fatal car accident to take place, but the repercussions can last a lifetime. You know the truth in this statement if you have tragically lost a loved one, yourself, in a car accident. You want to bring justice against the party responsible for the accident; however, mourning the passing of your loved one is at the forefront of your thoughts. You cannot even focus on daily tasks, much less handle a complex lawsuit. Let The Law Office of WT Johnson pursue justice for you.

In a wrongful death claim, you may be able to recover what are known as actual damages and exemplary damages. Actual damages include:

  • Financial losses, such as loss of earning capacity, maintenance, services, support, advice, and counsel.
  • Mental anguish, emotional distress, and suffering that result from the death of your loved one.
  • Loss of comfort, companionship, and society.
  • Loss of potential inheritance.

Exemplary damages are awarded in cases in which the defendant committed a willful act or a gross act of negligence. Either way, these damages are well-deserved if someone else recklessly caused your loved one’s death.

Proving Fault in a Dallas Car Accident Case

After a car accident, two primary questions come to mind: How did this happen and who was at fault? In some cases, the answers to these questions may be immediately clear, whereas in others, matters may be more gray and difficult to parse out. Fault is the determining factor in any personal injury claim. In order to establish the fault of the other party, you must be able to provide evidence, such as:

  • Police and medical reports
  • Witness statements
  • Photos and videos of the accident scene, injuries, and property damage
  • Expert testimony

Dealing with Insurance Companies

In an ideal world, the at-fault party's insurance company would gladly hand over full and fair compensation for all of the damages that resulted from the crash. After all, it is the right thing to do. Unfortunately, insurance companies tend to put profits ahead of doing what's right.

You are not required to speak to any insurance adjusters. In fact, it is well within your rights to tell them to speak to your lawyer if they contact you. Don't believe them if they say otherwise. They only want you to say something that could be used to weaken your claim down the line. Don't even give them the chance.

Your attorney should know exactly what and what not to say to preserve or improve your claim's strength. He or she may even be able to negotiate a desirable settlement deal, making a trial unnecessary.

No Coverage, No Fee

At The Law Office of WT Johnson, we do not operate as a lawsuit mill. Rather, we avoid frivolous lawsuits and only select viable claims. As our client, you can rest assured that you have a very good chance of attaining the coverage you need. And if you do not end up getting coverage, then you won't owe us a cent, guaranteed.

Q: What damages can I recover in a car accident injury claim?

A: Depending on the extent of your damages and your attorney's ability to prove them, you may recover the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Wages lost during recovery
  • Property damage (vehicle)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Impairment
  • Disfigurement
  • Punitive damages

Q: Should I communicate with the opposing insurance company?

A: No. You have no obligation to contact the opposing insurance company. You also have no obligation to speak to an insurance adjuster if one calls you. Exercise your right to avoid communication and relay all calls to your lawyer. If you speak with the insurance adjuster yourself, you may say something that can and will be used against you down the line. Remember, the opposing insurance company does not bear your interests in mind--not at all. They are concerned only about their profits. So don't take the risk of speaking with them.

Q: I need medical treatment but can't afford it. What can I do

A: Although you have the right to recover the costs of all reasonable and necessary medical expenses from the at-fault party, the opposing insurance company has no obligation to pay for the expenses as they are incurred. This may put you in a bind if you have no health or injury protection insurance of any kind. However tempting it may be, do NOT settle for less than you deserve. Instead, contact a reliable car crash lawyer for advice on deferred payment plans or other paths to medical treatment.

Q: What if the liable person has inadequate insurance or no insurance at all?

A: Unfortunately, your options may be limited, depending on your insurance policy. If you have collision and underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage, you can recover vehicle and personal injury damages, respectively. However, the amount you receive cannot exceed your policy limit. If you don't have such coverage, you may be out of luck. You should explore all of your options with a trusted attorney.

Q: What are the top 10 dangerous intersections in Dallas?

In 2011, one of Dallas' intersections made the list of the nation's 10 most dangerous intersections. Many other intersections in the city have had wrecks that resulted in fatalities and numerous injuries. Intersections are dangerous because it's easy for a driver to run a red light, especially if there is a lot of traffic or if the driver is in a hurry. Also, since pedestrians cross at intersections, there is a higher chance of pedestrian accidents at intersections.

To help you and your family be safe when driving around Dallas, here are the top 10 dangerous intersections in Dallas:

  • TX-121 and Preston Road intersection: was rated by State Farm as the 8th most dangerous intersection in America
  • I-35 and I-635
  • Hebron Parkway and Highway 121
  • Hebron Parkway and Old Denton Road
  • Park Lane and Preston Road
  • Belt Line Road and MacArthur Boulevard
  • Coit Road and I-635
  • North Dallas Tollway and Parker Road
  • TX-121 and Custer Road
  • TX-121 and North Dallas Tollway

Some tips for driving through intersections are to wait for a moment when the light turns green to avoid being hit by any cars flying through a red light. Be extra alert to the roadway signs before you get to an intersection, so you can know ahead of time where the turning lanes are, if you are allowed to turn on red, etc.
