The Leading Personal Injury Law Firm in Fort Worth, TX

What sets our firm apart is our ability to actually try cases in court. Around 95% of cases settle out-of-court, meaning most lawyers never see the inside of a courtroom. When lawyers don’t have a record of winning cases in court, defendants feel less pressure to offer claimants what they actually deserve. It leads to smaller, less helpful settlements.

Arnold & Itkin is a different story.

We not only try cases, we have a long history of winning. 

Our results include the largest single-injury verdict in Louisiana history, the largest verdict in Pennsylvania history, and the largest verdict in the nation for an amputee victim. Because we do so well in trial, many defendants pay our clients whatever it takes to avoid facing us in court. We leverage our case record to get clients everything they need to recover.

What Kind of Accident Cases Do Our Injury Lawyers Handle?

Arnold & Itkin handles virtually every kind of accident case. If someone’s negligence caused you harm, we have the resources and experience to make them pay for it. To get answers about your specific case, you’ll need to schedule a free consultation with us so we can evaluate your case more closely.

Our firm has won cases involving (but not limited to) the following:

The Elements of a Fort Worth Personal Injury Case

A personal injury lawsuit allows a person to hold individuals or companies responsible for negligent or wrongful acts that caused harm. These cases are filed in civil court and typically involve situations where a party failed to act with reasonable care. Similarly, a wrongful death suit allows the family of the decedent to hold at-fault parties responsible.

The four main elements of a personal injury case include the following:

  • Duty of Care – The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care to act in a certain way. An example may be any motorist on the road. Their duty of care would be to obey traffic laws and drive reasonably safely.
  • Breach of Care – The defendant breached this duty of care. Using the same motorist example, a breach of care may include acts like texting while driving, running a red light, weaving in and out of traffic, or driving under the influence.
  • Causation – The defendant’s breach caused the plaintiff’s injury. The plaintiff needs to prove the defendant’s failure to act with care caused the injuries. For example, while running a red light, the motorist struck and hurt the plaintiff.
  • Damages – The plaintiff suffered actual damages. If a motorist ran a red light without impacting anyone, there would be no reason for a lawsuit. This final element involves showing what damages the plaintiff suffered.

The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is an award or settlement that compensates the victim or family for their losses. The financial compensation is meant to help the victim or family rebuild. Although the truth is that there is no way to actually “compensate” a person for physical and emotional trauma and no way to make it as though it never happened, a successful case can bring peace of mind and a sense of closure, plus the financial security to face a more stable future.

The outcome of a Fort Worth personal injury lawsuit can be life-changing; we aim to achieve that type of recovery in every case because our clients deserve the chance to move on with their lives.

Types of Compensation Available in Fort Worth Personal Injury Cases

The specifics of each case will vary, and no attorney can guarantee specific results, but the main types of compensation you can sue an at-fault party for include economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages can also be awarded in cases of extraordinary negligence or intentional misdeeds.

Compensation for economic damages can cover the costs of:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity

Non-economic damages can include compensation for:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

What Happens If I'm Partially at Fault for an Accident?

In Texas, personal injury falls under modified comparative negligence. That means you can still recover compensation if you're 50% or less at fault for an accident. However, if you're considered to be 51% or more at fault for the accident, you can lose out on recovering anything. Modified comparative negligence also means your compensation can be reduced by however much you're considered to be at fault. So, if you're considered 10% at fault for an accident, the amount you could recover would be reduced by 10%. You could lose half the compensation available if assigned 50% of the blame. 

Plant & Refinery Accidents in Fort Worth, Texas

Refineries and plants are essential to the local economy; however, working at—or living near—a plant or refinery can be dangerous. Often, companies ignore safety standards that keep workers and the community safe. They do this because it saves them money, and they’ve determined the risk outweighs the cost of doing the right thing. When these companies fail to do the right thing, and the unthinkable happens, Arnold & Itkin ensures they’re held accountable.

Our Fort Worth plant and refinery accident law firm has helped workers and their families during some of the most significant cases in recent years. When the Williams Olefins plant exploded, we were there to make sure the workers were treated right. After the Texas City refinery exploded, our team fought to make sure the owner of it did the right thing. We do these things because we believe in helping regular people facing powerful companies. While the other side might have dozens of lawyers, our clients have help from a team that has overcome challenges repeatedly to recover billions.

Why Do Plant, Factory, & Refinery Accidents Happen?

Plants, factories, and refineries must follow the same safety standards as any other workplace in the nation. These standards are created for specific industries and enforced by OSHA. While OSHA tries to make sure all workers in the nation are safe, it doesn’t have enough inspectors in the United States to hold every employer accountable. Because of this, some employers take chances on safety—assuming they won’t get caught or that an accident might happen.

Plant, factory, and refinery accidents are often caused by:

  • Equipment defects
  • Design flaws
  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to conduct routine maintenance
  • Poor hazard review
  • Inadequate safety training

Refineries and plants have many parts to make them operate, such as heavy machinery and specialized equipment. This makes it even more critical for employers to ensure workers are trained, standards are in place, and maintenance is prioritized. In some instances, even the slightest repair need can cause no problems for years before an accident.

About Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, often lauded as the starting point of the American West, stands as a significant urban center covering nearly 350 square miles in North Texas. Serving as the governmental seat of Tarrant County, the city boasts a robust population of 958,692 as of 2022, marking it as one of the nation's fastest-growing urban areas. Established in 1849 as a strategic military outpost by the U.S. War Department, Fort Worth derives its name from Major General William Jenkins Worth, a distinguished American officer. Positioned atop a bluff overlooking the Trinity River, its early prominence burgeoned due to its pivotal location along the cattle-driving trails from Texas to Kansas, earning it the epithet "Cowtown." Despite facing setbacks during the Civil War, its resurgence began in 1876 with the completion of the Texas and Pacific Railway line.

Fort Worth has notable attractions, including the venerable Fort Worth Zoo, inaugurated in 1909 as Texas' inaugural zoo, and the Southwestern Stock Show & Rodeo, the nation's oldest event of its kind. Sports enthusiasts frequent the Texas Motor Speedway, a colossal racing venue accommodating nearly 155,000 spectators. Moreover, the city's cultural scene thrives with institutions like the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fort Worth Museum of Science & History, and the renowned Kimbell Art Museum, alongside many dining, shopping, and artistic venues that encapsulate its rich heritage.

Common Questions

  • How Much Is My Case Worth?

    The worth of your case is dependent on the specific impact of your injuries on your life. For instance, if your job has made you unable to work, then we can claim the loss of your entire income. If you’re still able to work, but at a less valuable capacity or for fewer hours, then we’ll have to calculate how much you might’ve made if you weren’t injured, compare it to your current earnings, and claim the difference.

    As Fort Worth injury lawyers, part of our approach is enlisting the expertise of specialists in order to fully calculate the lifetime impact of your injuries. For instance, we bring in economists and health experts to explain how the cost of your injuries might compound over time, and what the total lifelong cost of treatment looks like.

  • If I Sue My Employer, Won’t They Fire Me?

    The law shields you from retaliation from your employer for certain protected actions. Filing a lawsuit for negligence is one of those actions. If your employer cuts your hours, shifts your hours to inconvenience you, or terminates you, they could be in even worse trouble. The law also shields you from blacklisting, so you’ll be able to find another job in your industry if you leave your current employer. If you hire Arnold & Itkin, we’ll do everything it takes to ensure you are protected from all forms of retaliation and injustice. It’s your right to pursue at-fault companies for compensation if you’ve been injured, and we’ll protect that right on your behalf—no matter what.
  • What Can I Claim in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

    You can claim any losses that resulted from your injuries. That includes both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic (or “special”) damages include any quantifiable financial losses caused by your injury or accident. Noneconomic (or “general”) damages include any non-quantifiable losses you’ve suffered as a result of the accident. Noneconomic damages are only claimable in extremely serious injury cases.
