Dallas Car Accident Attorneys
Billions Won by Car Crash Lawyers in Dallas, TX
To accommodate its massive size, Texas has the most miles of road when compared to other states. Unfortunately, with so many miles of highway, Texas has an accident problem involving cars, buses, trucks, and other types of vehicles. The Texas Department of Transportation revealed that, in 2017, a highway accident happened every 59 seconds. These accidents resulted in 3,721 deaths and 254,853 injuries. 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 from serious collisions. When someone else is at fault for the accident, it's unfair to expect you to shoulder the cost of your own recovery.

What to Do After a Dallas Car Accident
Taking the right steps after a car accident can make a major difference in your ability to maximize compensation. If you are physically able, speak to the other driver(s) and collect names, phone numbers, license plate numbers, and insurance information. Additionally, take photos of the scene of the accident and any damage to vehicles. Any information you collect could be useful for your claim later.
While speaking with your insurance company within 24 hours is required, be very 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 an attorney first. Having the assistance of a lawyer can protect you from saying things that the insurance company will hold against you. Calling a Dallas car accident lawyer will also ensure you benefit from any and all avenues for compensation, including claiming lost work time, diminished future earnings, and more.

Dallas Car Accident FAQ
When Is a Dallas Car Accident Lawsuit Possible?
Having an accurate, consistent record of the crash scene is a crucial step in obtaining the best possible results.
Attorneys may find ways to strengthen your claim with the following questions:
- Was the other driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
- Was the accident caused by distracted driving?
- Was the accident worsened by reckless driving?
- Could the other driver have prevented the accident?
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 know what questions to ask to strengthen your claim, which will result in larger settlements. Some studies indicate that having an attorney for an accident claim often resulted in far larger results, even after accounting for the cost of hiring a lawyer. 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 an honest offer. The possibility of facing a jury is often what gets insurance companies to deal fairly, but it's often only possible with a lawyer on your side.
What Are Common Car Accident Injuries?
Motor vehicles weigh thousands of pounds, so when they collide with other objects, the consequences are serious. Metal, glass, and flammable materials create a dire situation for those that are involved in an accident. 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.
Each of 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. When a serious injury occurs, no one should have to bear the added stress of medical bills and long-term treatment.

While nothing can change what happened, we're ready to demand the justice you deserve.
Dallas Ambulance Accident Attorneys
Ambulances are supposed to help people, not hurt them. However, they’re motor vehicles operated by humans who are susceptible to errors, on roadways where distracted and drunk drivers must be dealt with. For these reasons, they are sometimes involved in accidents that leave patients and drivers with catastrophic injuries.
Our Dallas ambulance accident law firm takes on cases involving crashes caused by:
- Distracted drivers (texting while driving)
- Drunk and drugged drivers
- Defective ambulance/auto parts
- Defective or dangerous roadways
- Violations of traffic laws
- Inadequate ambulance maintenance
- Heavy weather
- Fatigued drivers

Record-Setting $117 Verdict for Client in Ambulance Collision
This story begins with a woman who was seven months pregnant, when she started experiencing stomach pains. 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 need. This is why our Dallas ambulance accident attorneys do what we do—to help people who are 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 cause is important when our attorneys take on a Dallas ambulance accident case. We need to know what party (or parties) caused the collision to see who should be held responsible for resulting medical bills, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and other damages or losses. 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.
We and our investigators may consider such details and evidence as:
- Witness accounts of the accident
- The scene of the accident, including skid marks, the condition of the road, 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
