I’m sorry to hear that you were injured in an accident. You may be the safest driver around, but when
you are forced to share the roads with other drivers, there is always a risk of an accident. Normally,
when are injured in an automobile accident because of the negligence of another driver, you are
entitled to pursue damages against that driver. If the person who caused the accident has little or no
insurance or assets, you may be out of luck.

Hopefully, you have uninsured motorist and/or underinsured motorist coverage as part of your own car
insurance package. Texas only requires that drivers have minimum automobile insurance coverage,
which is in many cases not sufficient to adequately compensate an injured party. Many drivers ignore
the law altogether and drive without any insurance coverage at all.

If you are injured in any type of accident involving a motor vehicle, and the value of your injuries and
other damages exceeds the coverage of the at-fault party’s insurance policy, you may be able to pursue
a claim against your insurance company under the terms of your policy. However, it’s important to keep
in mind that your best interests are different from those of your insurance carrier. Insurance companies
stay in business by taking in more money on premiums than they pay out in claims. Insurance companies
may also try to deny the claim altogether.

If you have been involved in an automobile accident in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with a driver who
does not have adequate insurance coverage to pay for your injuries, call the Dallas-Fort Worth
automobile accident attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231- 5800. We can help. Call today to learn

If you have been injured in an accident in the workplace in McKinney, you have legal rights, and you
should consult with an attorney who can protect those legal rights. The McKinney workplace injury
attorneys at the Barber Law Firm take the legal rights of injured workers seriously. If you have been

employer. When that happens, you may be able to sue that third party in civil court, separately from
your workers’ compensation award. You may be able to recover damages for negligence, premises
liability, or product liability, depending on the circumstance of the case. You may be able to recover
compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and permanent disability.

Over 100 people a day are killed in automobile accidents in the U.S., amounting to over 40,000 lives lost
every year. Of those traffic fatalities, almost a third occur on U.S. highways and interstates. Recently, a
company analyzed fatality data gathered for highways and interstates in the U.S. from 2011 to 2015 in
order to determine which interstates and highways were the deadliest.

According to the study, I-45 between Dallas and Galveston is the second deadliest stretch of road in the
U.S., with 1.02 deaths per mile. I-45 is second only behind I-4 between Tampa and Daytona Beach,
Florida. In general, the deadliest highways were in the southeast. On the I-45, the most common
harmful event is two motor vehicles colliding. Pedestrians are the second most common cause of a fatal
accident, and overturned vehicles are third.

Automobile accidents are the most common cause of accidental death in the U.S. A serious injury in an
automobile accident can change a person’s life forever. Although there are a number of safety
technologies now that are designed to reduce crashes, the person behind the wheel is ultimately in
charge of the safe operation of the vehicle. When a person is driving, they have a duty to operate their
vehicle safely. If they fail to do so and their negligence results in a crash in which people are injured, that
driver has a responsibility to pay for the damages.

Negligent drivers are more prevalent today than ever before. Drivers are more rushed and distracted
than in years past, which can result in more accidents. If you have been injured in an automobile
accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you have the right to compensation for your injuries,
including for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Call the Dallas-Fort Worth
personal injury attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231- 5800 if you have been injured in an
automobile accident. We can help. Call to learn more or to schedule a free consultation on your case.



People are busier today than ever before. Drivers have to drop kids off at school, go to work, go to
meetings, run errands, and more. Most drivers try their best to avoid accidents, but some accidents are
difficult to avoid. Accidents resulting from blind spots can be especially difficult to avoid, particularly for
those with vision problems or those who are newer drivers.

If a driver fails to check his or her blind spot, an accident can easily result. It’s critical that drivers in
Dallas-Fort Worth drive as defensively as possible. Assume that other drivers are unwilling or unable to
see vehicles in their blind spots, and avoid driving in another driver’s blind spot, particularly if the
vehicle is a large truck. You should always check your blind spots by using your mirrors.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to accidents involving blind spots. The biggest issue is
distracted driving – many drivers who are busy on the roads with cell phones and other distractions who
fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes. Some other factors that can contribute to blind spot
accidents include fatigue, intoxication, slower reflexes because of aging, and a lack of knowledge about
the dangers of blind spots.

If you have been involved in an accident because of another driver’s failure to check his or her blind
spot, you should speak with an attorney who can ensure that you receive all the damages to which you
are entitled. If you are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, call the Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorneys
at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231- 5800. We can help. Call us today to learn more or to schedule a free
consultation on your case.

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.

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.

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

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.
