Trusted Forney Auto Accident Lawyers Seek Comprehensive Settlements
Dedicated Texas attorneys represent victims of reckless driving crashes
An auto accident that causes serious injury can be devastating, not only physically but financially. Medical bills, missed work and related costs can hit victims and their families hard. The attorneys at Vice & Henley, PLLC in Forney offer strong and dedicated legal representation for individuals seeking compensation for the harm they have suffered. Serving clients in Kaufman County and North Texas since 2006, we help injured drivers, passengers and pedestrians navigate the insurance claims process and obtain fair and adequate settlements and court awards.
Thorough legal team skilled at demonstrating driver negligence
In many cases, an accident could have been prevented if only the driver at fault had exercised reasonable care. Our firm will investigate whether the other driver was:
- Alcohol- or drug-impaired — Anyone who drives after consuming a substantial amount of alcohol or any mind-altering substance becomes a hazard for other drivers and pedestrians.
- Distracted — Texting while driving is illegal in Texas, yet many drivers persist in using handheld devices that take their attention from the roads. This includes GPS and other apps requiring ocular and manual interaction. Activities like talking, tuning a radio and consuming food or beverages can also divert a driver’s attention from the road.
- Careless or reckless — Excessive speed, illegal turns and other disregard of traffic rules are grounds for proving negligence. A driver is reckless if he or she operates a vehicle with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of others.
Even if your own conduct contributed to the accident, you may still be able to recover damages. Under Texas’s modified comparative negligence rule, you are entitled to compensation as long as you were not more than 50 percent responsible for the collision. However, your damages will be reduced by the percentage of your own fault. Our lawyers work zealously to make the strongest case possible for your entitlement to maximum compensation from all other parties at fault.
Helping clients recoup medical costs other damages
Motor vehicle collisions can result in injuries that require long-term medical care and rehabilitation. These include traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, bone fracture, organ damage and other forms of physical trauma. The financial impact of an accident can be substantial, leaving victims with piles of hospital bills and weeks’ or months’ worth of missed paychecks due to being unable to work. In addition, victims may suffer emotional distress and pain and suffering, which can also be severe and long-lasting. Our objective is to help our clients collect the compensation they need not only to reimburse short- and long-term expenses but also to make up for their diminished quality of life.
