There has been a staggering amount of time and energy put into educating the public about the dangers of drinking and driving. In addition, strict laws have been passed to punish those who choose to drink and drive. Despite that, tens of thousands of injuries and deaths occur each year because of drunk drivers. If you have been injured in an accident in Murphy that was caused by a drunk driver, you should speak with an attorney. You have legal rights, and a Murphy drunk driving accident attorney can help. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 10,000 people each year are killed in accidents caused by drunk drivers. Accidents caused by drinking and driving account for about a third of all automobile fatalities in the U.S. Regardless of whether or not the drunk driver received a citation for drunk driving or was arrested, if the other driver is to blame for the accident, they can be held legally liable. The fact that the individual was drinking can be used to show negligence in the case. Negligence must be proven in order to recover compensation after an accident. 

An experienced drunk driving attorney can use police reports, eyewitness accounts, and other evidence to build a strong case against the drunk driver. If you can prove your case, you are entitled to damages. You may be entitled to money for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, rehab, and more. Unfortunately, as you may imagine, in many cases the drunk driver does not have the proper insurance or assets. In those cases, sometimes there are other parties that can be held legally responsible, or in other cases, the victim may be out of luck. 

If you have been injured in an automobile accident in Murphy that you believe was caused by a drunk driver, you should speak with a Murphy drunk driving accident attorney. Call the Murphy drunk driving accident attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231-5800. We will provide you with a free consultation on your case, and we may be able to help you recover compensation. You will not pay us any fees unless we are able to obtain compensation for you.

I’m very sorry to hear about your injuries from a fire. Whether or not you can hold your landlord responsible for your injuries depends on the circumstances of the fire. You may wish to speak to a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorney about the fire. The attorney can help determine whether you have a solid case against the landlord or any other parties. 

Burns can be very traumatic for the burn victim. Burns can be extraordinarily painful. Burns are so painful because they involve an area with a high density of nerves. Burns can also leave physical and emotional scars behind. 

One of the risks of living in an apartment is that you may suffer consequences because of the actions of your landlord and neighbors, even if you have taken all necessary precautions to prevent a fire. After an apartment fire, it is common for landlords and building owners to pressure fire victims into not filing claims, in an attempt to avoid the financial ramifications of a lawsuit. 

Property owners and managers have a duty to take every reasonable action required to reduce the risk of a fire and to keep their buildings up to code for the safety of their tenants. If they fail to do so and a fire occurs, they can be held responsible. Some of the actions that landlords and property managers are expected to take for the safety of their tenants include providing and maintaining working smoke detectors, making sure the property is correctly wired, keeping exit paths clear from clutter, and providing and maintaining fire extinguishers for use on the property. 

Because of the expense involved, many landlords choose to cut corners and do not take all actions they should to prevent fires. If you have been harmed in an apartment fire that you believe could have been prevented by your landlord, call the Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231-5800. We can help. Call today to learn more or to schedule a free consultation on your case. 

 



Most accidents involving a pedestrian and an automobile are very serious and result in catastrophic
injuries for the pedestrian. Because of the severity of pedestrian automobile accidents, it’s
recommended that injured pedestrians contact a personal injury attorney to help with the case.

Insurance adjusters often pressure the accident victims to settle the case for far less than it’s worth.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 150,000 pedestrians are treated in emergency rooms
for injuries every year. Some of those injured ultimately die from their injuries. Unfortunately,
pedestrian injuries are on the rise, as more vehicles clog our roads and more cities plan their growth to
accommodate pedestrians.

The majority of pedestrian accidents happen in urban areas. There are several types of driver behavior
that result in most accidents involving pedestrian injuries. Drivers failing to yield is the largest cause of
pedestrian accidents in the U.S. Vehicles making a turn also account for a large number of pedestrian
injuries. Sadly, hit and run collisions are also common.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Farmer’s Branch, you should speak with an attorney.
Your attorney can work on your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery. An attorney can help
order medical records, obtain video footage of the accident, consult with doctors about your medical
records, obtain eyewitness statements, communicate with insurance companies, and communicate with
medical insurance companies about your claims.

Call the Farmer’s Branch pedestrian accident attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-635- 4078. We can
help you with your case. Call us today to learn more or to schedule a free consultation.



When a person walks across a parking lot, he or she probably assumes it will be a quick, unremarkable
trip to the car. However, many different types of accidents can happen in that short period of time. If a
parking lot owner in the Dallas-Fort Worth area fails to maintain his or her lot, it can create dangers that
can cause serious injuries to people using the parking lot.

Business owners have a legal duty to maintain safe parking lots for customers. Business owners must be
diligent in upholding this duty. They must check for dangerous conditions in the parking lot, and ensure
that it is clean and free from holes or uneven pavement. If the parking lot is potentially dangerous, they
must provide proper lighting and security.a

If a store, hotel, or restaurant fails to uphold its duty to maintain a safe parking lot, and a customer is
harmed as a result, the business owner can be held legally responsible. If a business attempts to avoid
responsibility for the accident, the accident victim should speak with an attorney immediately. Even if a
business is leasing the property from a landlord, the business most likely still has a duty to maintain the
property in a safe condition.

Injuries obtained from a slip or trip in a parking lot can be very costly and may prevent a customer from
ever returning to work or to his or her normal life. Some serious injuries that could occur in a parking lot
fall include head injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and permanent disabilities.
If you have been the victim of a fall or another accident in a parking lot in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,
you should speak with an attorney. Call the personal injury attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-635-
4078. We can help. Call today to learn more or to schedule a free consultation.



If you are the parent of a child who has been killed in Dallas because of the wrongful actions of another party, first, please accept my condolences. Losing a child can create unbearable grief, which can be compounded because of the circumstances under which the death occurred. On top of the grief, surviving family members have to deal with financial losses, which can include medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and the costs of taking time off from work to grieve. In many cases, parents will hire an attorney to file a claim for compensation in the case of the wrongful death of a child.

Under Texas law, parents have the right to file a wrongful death claim if a child has been killed because of the wrongful actions of another party. Claimants in a wrongful death case involving a child can seek compensation for their expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. Some family members choose to seek punitive damages as well, which are designed to punish the wrongdoer.

Wrongful death cases in Texas can be complex. In many situations, investigators will need to reconstruct the accident or incident using evidence or eyewitness accounts. In some cases, expert witnesses will testify on how or why the accident occurred. Although of course no amount of money will ever bring your child back, it can help meet your expenses related to the loss of the child, provide a safety net for you, and help you get back on your feet after your loss.

In order to win a wrongful death case in Dallas, you must show that your child died because of the negligence, irresponsibility, or even intentional actions of another party. You must show that the defendant in the lawsuit had a legal duty of care, and breached that duty, and that those actions resulted in the death of your child.

If you have lost your child in the Dallas-Fort Worth area because of another party’s negligence, call the Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-382-9630. We can help. Call today to learn more or to schedule a free consultation on your case.



Under Texas law, property owners are responsible for providing a safe environment for any guests or visitors to the property. If a person in Carrolton suffers an injury because of a dangerous condition on the property, in most cases the individual has the right to be compensated for his or her injuries. This area of law is called premises liability. 

 

Premises liability is the legal responsibility of a property owner or manager to take reasonable steps to keep the property safe. When an accident occurs, it is important to investigate to determine whether the property owner knew or should have known of the hazard that caused the injury. Some of the most common types of premises liability cases include slip, trip, and fall cases, accidents involving structural defects, drowning accidents, and cases involving the presence of biohazards. 

 

In order to seek compensation for your premises liability case in Carrollton, you must prove that the negligence of the company or the individual is what caused your accident. Simply getting injured at the home or the business of another is not sufficient to obtain compensation from them. Instead, you must build a case showing the other side’s negligence, how that led to your injuries, and proving your damages. 

 

At the Barber Law Firm, our attorneys regularly handle cases involving accidents, such as slip and fall accidents, that occur at the homes of family and friends. In those situations, it can be awkward to seek compensation from those individuals. However, it’s important to remember that while that may be awkward on paper, in most cases the individual’s insurance company will be paying your damages. Also, if you fail to seek compensation and too much time elapses, you may be prevented from seeking compensation in the future. 

 

Call the Carrolton premises liability attorneys if you have been injured in an accident on another person’s property. You may be entitled to compensation. Call us today at 972-544-4843. We can help. Call to learn more or to schedule a free consultation on your case. 



I’m so sorry to hear about the fire. Burns can be extremely traumatic to the victim, not only because they are so painful and difficult to heal from, but also because of the physical damage they can inflict on the victims. Fires can leave physical and emotional scars that may never go away. If you were harmed in a fire that was caused by a negligent property manager, a workplace fire, a poorly designed product, or a negligent homeowner, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries from the insurance companies involved. Unfortunately, in many cases burn victims may run into resistance when attempting to make a claim. 

There are some common scenarios in which a person is injured in a fire in which another person or entity is responsible for the damages. They can include:

– An apartment owner or manager fails to take necessary safety precautions to keep tenants safe, such as installing working smoke alarms or making sure the building is wired according to code,

– A smoke alarm company fails to properly design and/or manufacture operating smoke alarms, resulting in the alarms failing to notify people when a fire has broken out, 

– A company manufactures a product that fails, such as an extension cord with a short in it, that results in a fire, 

– An employer fails to follow the appropriate safety standards in the workplace, resulting in a fire. 

In any of these situations, the victim should speak with an attorney. The burn victim may have legal rights he or she have not considered. In addition, insurance companies are notorious for pressuring accident victims to settle for less than that to which they are entitled.

In most claims that arise from accidents or mistakes in Carrollton, the basis for holding another person or business legally responsible comes from a legal theory called negligence. By law, if a person or a business behaves in a negligent way, the careless person will be legally liable for any harm that results because of those negligent actions.

To win a negligence case in Carrollton, normally the injured party (the plaintiff) must prove four elements to show that the defendant acted negligently. First, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances. For example, a driver owes a duty to other drivers on the road to drive carefully, and a doctor owes a duty to his or her patients to treat them with a high level of care. The second element that must be proven is a breach of the duty of care. If a driver was driving while intoxicated and hit another car, obviously he or she breached the duty of care. If a surgeon removed a kidney instead of a pancreas during an operation, the duty of care was breached. The third element is proving that the defendant’s actions or inactions caused the plaintiff’s injury. Finally, it must be proven that the plaintiff suffered some type of damages from the defendant’s actions.

If you are able to build a strong case and prove those four elements, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries, assuming that the defendant has assets to pay your damages or an insurance policy. In most personal injury cases, the plaintiff’s attorney is able to work out a settlement before going to court, but in some cases a trial is necessary.

If you have been injured because of the wrongful actions of a person or a business in Carrollton, you should speak with an attorney. You have legal rights that should be protected.

Motorcyclists who are injured in motorcycle accidents often face an uphill battle when trying to recover compensation for their injuries from the insurance companies of drivers who have caused the accidents. Many insurance companies can be very difficult when it comes to handling claims involving injured or deceased motorcyclists in Coppell.

Unfortunately, motorcyclists have very little protective equipment to absorb the impact from a collision with a vehicle. This can cause motorcyclists to receive some of the most significant injuries of any individuals traveling on the roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 5,000 motorcyclists are killed in accidents each year, and around 80,000 are injured. Injuries and deaths have been on the rise, as the number of motorcycles on the roadways is increasing.

In order to recover compensation after your motorcycle accident in Coppell, you must show that the driver of the automobile caused the accident.
