Dallas Car Accident Attorneys

Billions Won by Our Renowned Car Crash Lawyers in Dallas

Not only does Texas have the most miles of road compared to other states, but it also has a massive accident problem. In 2022, the Texas Department of Transportation found that a traffic accident happened every 57 seconds. These accidents resulted in 4,481 deaths and 18,880 serious injuries.

Furthermore, Dallas itself has consistently placed at the top of lists for most dangerous U.S. cities to drive in, and with a significantly high fatality rate too. In 2022, Dallas officially recorded 33,980 crashes resulting in 1,182 serious injuries and 228 deaths, a rate of more than 90 crashes per day.

Statistically, many of these injuries and fatalities were suffered by people who weren't at fault.

Car accident survivors experience lasting injuries, medical bills, and lost income. When someone else is at fault for the accident, it's unfair to expect you to shoulder the cost of your recovery. To get the money you need to move forward, it's crucial that you hire an experienced car accident lawyer in Dallas. Arnold & Itkin has won billions of dollars in record-setting verdicts and settlements. Our firm is here to help you get what you need.

How Our Dallas Vehicle Accident Lawyers Can Help

Serving Dallas and all of the U.S., our trial lawyers handle personal injury and wrongful death cases for victims of vehicle accidents and their families. This includes:

What to Do After a Dallas Car Accident

Taking the right steps after a car accident can make a significant difference in your ability to maximize your financial compensation. Any information you collect could be helpful in your claim later.

After a car accident, if you are physically able, speak to the other driver(s) and collect:

  • Names
  • Phone numbers
  • License plate numbers
  • Insurance information.
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Photos of any damage to vehicles

While speaking with your insurance company within 24 hours is required, be mindful of what you say to them or the other party's insurance. Saying too much could make you seem at fault for the accident, even if you were not. If you're able, call a Dallas car accident attorney beforehand. A lawyer can protect you from saying things the insurance company will hold against you, and they can also ensure that you benefit from all avenues for compensation, which can include covering medical expenses, lost work time, diminished future earnings, and more.

Determining Fault for Car Accidents in Dallas

Since Texas uses modified comparative negligence, anyone injured in a car accident has to be considered 50% or less at fault for a crash in order to receive compensation for insurance. Any percentage of shared fault for the crash would lead to a reduction in the compensation available. That means that even if you are partially at fault for the crash, you could still be owed compensation.

It also means that the other party's insurance company is going to try to shift as much blame onto you as possible to avoid paying. With the right attorney representing you, however, you can make sure that insurance doesn't try to wriggle out of its duty to you, and that the party who is truly responsible for the crash pays you the financial damages you're entitled to.

Parties who can be at fault in a car accident can include:

  • Auto manufacturers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding drivers
  • Drunk drivers
  • Fatigued drivers
  • Drivers who violated rules of the road (tailgating, running stop sign, etc.)

Whatever state an accident happens, whether it has comparative negligence or not, it's critical that you don't apologize or admit fault to anyone, even if you simply mean to sympathize with someone else who was in the crash. These words can be used against you unfairly, keeping you from recovering the settlement you need to cover medical expenses, income losses, and more.

Dallas Ambulance Accident Attorneys

Powerful Legal Help After Catastrophic Emergency Vehicle Accidents

Ambulances are supposed to help people, not hurt them. However, they are operated by humans who are susceptible to errors, on roadways where there are also distracted and drunk drivers. For these reasons, they are sometimes involved in accidents that leave patients and drivers with catastrophic injuries. If you or someone you love was involved in an accident involving an ambulance, we encourage you to contact our firm as quickly as possible. We have a history of winning results in these serious cases, and we're here to help you.

Record-Setting $117 Verdict for Client in Ambulance Collision

This story begins with a woman who was seven months pregnant. She started to experience strong stomach pains, and she called for an ambulance. While they were en route to the hospital, the ambulance driver took his eyes off the road for a moment. That was all it took for the ambulance to crash into the back of a sugar cane truck. The woman suffered severe spinal cord and brain injuries, and her daughter had to be delivered prematurely. The mother would never fully recover and would remain in a wheelchair for life.

Arnold & Itkin took on the case and fought for a $117 million verdict.

This verdict ensured our client and her two daughters would receive the care and support they needed. This is why our Dallas ambulance accident attorneys do what we do—to help people going through the toughest times. We provide the guidance and representation that can make all the difference in getting answers and compensation to rebuild and move on.

Investigating a Dallas Ambulance Accident

Determining the cause is essential in ambulance accident cases. We need to know what caused the collision to see who should be held responsible for medical bills, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and other damages. We use different methods for investigating a crash depending on the circumstances, but we will typically work with accident reconstruction specialists, investigators, and experts in engineering, medicine, and other fields to paint a clear picture of the circumstances leading up to the collision, plus the collision itself.

Our investigators and our team may consider such details and evidence as:

  • Witness accounts of the accident
  • The scene of the accident, including skid marks, traffic signs, etc.
  • The location and type of damage sustained by all involved vehicles
  • The location and type of injury sustained by all victims
  • Police reports
  • The ambulance's EDR (event data recorder)
  • Ambulance driver and ambulance maintenance logs

Common Questions

  • What Are Common Car Accident Injuries?

    Motor vehicles weigh thousands of pounds—so when they collide with other objects, the consequences are serious. Common injuries from a car crash may include blunt force trauma, neck and back injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), scarring and disfigurement, spinal cord injuries, and burn injuries. These injuries are serious and require intensive medical care and a lengthy recovery. Complications from scarring, nerve damage, or traumatic amputation can cause struggles for the rest of an individual's life.
  • Why Do I Need a Dallas Car Accident Lawyer?

    Some studies indicate that having an attorney for an accident claim often results in far larger results, even after accounting for the cost of hiring a lawyer. The reality is that the insurance company will take every chance to minimize your payout. A Dallas car accident attorney knows this and will be prepared for it. An experienced attorney will also know what questions to ask to strengthen your claim, resulting in larger settlements. There's another reason to hire an attorney: only an attorney is qualified to take insurance companies to court. Lawsuits are sometimes the only way to make an insurance company make a fair offer. The possibility of facing a jury is often what gets them to deal fairly, but it's often only possible with a lawyer on your side.

  • What Can a Dallas Car Accident Law Firm Do to Help?

    Our Dallas car accident lawyers always focus on making sure a person doesn't have to suffer financially in addition to their other injuries. This means that we'll fight for compensation for losses such as medical debt, missed wages, cost of future care, and any other expense associated with your accident. If you've lost a loved one because of a car accident, we might be able to seek the compensation you need to find a path forward after your loss. While nothing can change what happened, we're ready to demand the justice you deserve.
