Submitted by Anonymous on Mar 10th, 2011

A Dallas vehicle accident attorney is exactly the professional you need if you've been involved in a car wreck that wasn't your fault. There are plenty of instances where drivers are negligent and where someone gets hurt because of it. These attorneys specialize in making sure that the victims of such drivers are able to seek financial compensation for their injuries, their pain and their suffering. With one of these attorneys on your side, you'll stand a much better chance of not being financially devastated by someone who was driving recklessly or downright dangerously.

Fortunately, hiring a car accident lawyer doesn't necessarily mean that you have to have money up front. In some cases, these attorneys will allow you to hire them on contingency, which means that you don't have to pay them unless they actually win your claim. The most important thing, however, is to make sure that, when you are in an accident, you don't say the wrong thing to your insurance company or to the other driver. In fact, the best time to call these attorneys is right after an accident.

Save Yourself! 3 Signs that the Driver is a Drunk

Submitted by Anonymous on Feb 22nd, 2011

 

Drunk drivers are among the most dangerous hazards to be found on Dallas roads and highways. All too often, theyre the causes behind a fatal Dallas car accident. If youre not certain whether or not a driver in front of you is drunk, watch out for the following three signs.

1: Drunk drivers tend to stop and go erratically. If you're lucky enough, you'll notice them doing this in a parking lot before they're actually out on the road. This is a very good sign the drivers inebriated. Be especially wary of drivers who stop suddenly before turns or at intersections. Chances are, they had a few too many to drink and the reflexes are dulled.

2. Drunk drivers have a very dangerous habit of going either way too fast or way too slow for the road that theyre on. While speed limits most certainly have the force of law behind them, people do tend to treat them as more of a traffic tip than a traffic law in everyday life. There is, however, a sensible range that people tend to stick to within the posted speed limit. If you see someone going way over or way under the speed limit, it's a good sign that they may be drunk and that you should probably keep your distance as much as possible. If theyre driving aggressively and coming up behind you, just let them pass.

Rural Roads and Safety

Submitted by jrlaw on Jan 27th, 2011

There is no shortage of rural roads to drive on in Texas. They’re some of the most enjoyable places to cruise around and they have some of the best scenery anywhere. You do have to be careful, however. You can be careful and still enjoy the scenery, but awareness of some common hazards will help you to stay safe out there.

Rural roads aren’t always maintained as well as are city roads. When a Dallas car accident occurs, it’s almost never because a huge pothole had developed or because a culvert was sticking above the surface of the road. This is fairly common on rural highways, however. Keep your eyes on the road and don’t drive too fast for the surface. If you’re looking at miles of straightway on a rural road, it doesn’t mean that it’s suitable for high-speed driving. In fact, there may be the types of bumps on the road that will wreck your car, and endanger your life.

Winter Safety Tips For the Year Round Motorcyclist

Submitted by jrlaw on Jan 27th, 2011

Dallas is warm enough that it’s practical to use a motorcycle year round. Aside from the changes in clothing and riding habits that have to be made to accommodate cold weather, you’ll also have to accommodate winter drivers. There are several factors working against a motorcyclist during the winter months.

Black ice is a popular term for a thin sheet of ice that forms on the road, oftentimes in areas where the sun doesn’t hit or at intersections where moisture from car exhaust freezes to the road. Unfortunately, black ice really isn’t black: it’s transparent. When you’re on the road, the tire ruts in the blacktop are usually less icy than the crowned areas of the road. The heat from car tires prevents ice from forming. If you do hit a patch, don’t turn your bike. Reduce your speed and keep your bike upright on the ice. These patches of ice usually aren’t very large, but they can cause you to lay your bike down.

Winter drivers really aren’t expecting to see motorcyclists. In the summer, drivers are simply more conditioned to seeing bikes on the road and will tend to notice them more. Be extra careful, especially during the dawn and dusk hours. Between the low light and the fact that dawn and dusk occur around rush hour in the winter, it’s a dangerous time to be on the roads.

When a Dallas Car Accident Turns Tragic

Submitted by jrlaw on Oct 12th, 2010

There are situations where a Dallas car accident can result in the loss of life and limb. In fact, thousands of Americans are killed in car accidents every year. Statistically, your odds of meeting your end in a car wreck are high and there are plenty of bad drivers out there who keep those numbers much higher than they should be. If you lose someone in an accident, you have legal options that may result in your receiving compensation for your pain, suffering, injuries and, if things go horribly wrong, your loss.

A wrongful death lawyer will represent you if you’re in a fatal crash. There are many cases where someone is specifically and undeniably at fault for such an accident. Drunk drivers are a particularly good example of this. These drivers are dangers to everyone and, all too often, that danger results in death. While they will face criminal charges, you can also file a civil suit to recover compensation for pain and suffering, as well as for the costs incurred for any medical treatment you required as a result of the accident they caused.

Can I Afford a Car Wreck Attorney?

Submitted by jrlaw on Sep 7th, 2010

If you’ve been in a Dallas car accident, you should explore your legal options. There are several different ways that you can get representation for such claims. While lawyers are usually thought of as being very expensive professionals—and this is true, to an extent—there are some that you can hire whether or not you have any money at all. This arrangement is called a contingency. The contingency part of the arrangement covers compensation. The lawyer only gets paid if they manage to win your case or an appropriate settlement.

Legal fees can be intimidating, but it’s important to consider the costs of being in a car wreck when calculating the total expenses. Your property is likely going to be damaged and you may have injuries to your body, as well. In some cases, these injuries may be long-term and may cause problems with work and your life in general. A car wreck attorney is a specialist who works with these claims. They can help you arrive at an appropriate dollar figure to cover your pain and suffering, as well as your expenses, and help you to seek that compensation in court.
