Determining the Value of Your Case
Most of the expenses associated with a motor vehicle collision aren't medical—meaning your health insurance won't cover them. Even if your health insurance covers your health expenses immediately after the accident, what if you require long-term care? What if you need ongoing treatment for pain relief or to maintain mobility? Who will pay for groceries and shelter while you're unable to work?
Motor vehicle collisions impact people's lives in ways we can't predict. All we can predict is that you'll need financial support to survive while you get better. Otherwise, you may be forced to work while injured—and you'll pay for that decision sooner or later. The best way to secure your future is to hold drivers (and insurance companies) accountable for their behavior.
That's what Arnold & Itkin is here for.

Motorcycles are a national symbol for speed, youth, and freedom. They, however, also leave the operator incredibly vulnerable to the elements. Due to the build of a motorcycle, even the slightest bump against a car can send it careening, ejecting the rider. This can cause serious injuries that range from road rash to broken bones, brain damage, and more.
Bus accidents put a lot of lives in jeopardy, including passengers, other drivers on the road, and even nearby pedestrians. As such, it is easy to see why these types of collisions are often considered to be catastrophic in nature. The number of people that can be harmed, as well as the severity of the harm that can be caused, make bus accident victims individuals that should not go without sound legal representation. Recovery for your injury and personal damages will likely depend to a great degree on the legal counsel with whom you choose to work.
In the rural areas of Texas, ATVs are a common source of fun and an often utilized tool for those who work outdoors. They, however, are also deeply dangerous. No matter whether the accidents were caused by a defect in the vehicles design or by another negligent third party, those who are injured should not hesitate to seek legal representation.
Not every motor vehicle accident occurs on the roadways. In fact, waterways are just as prone to serious and debilitating accidents. Boats do not steer as easily, do not have a car's braking system, and are often operated by those who are not properly trained. This can result in serious accidents that can cause debilitating injuries to the victims.
Large commercial trucks are no rare sight on Texas highways. While operated by professional drivers, they are not exempt from being in accidents. When exhausted, distracted, or not properly trained, truck drivers can cause serious injuries - magnified by the size and weight of the vehicle. Even defective equipment or poor maintenance of the truck can lead to such accidents.
