Helping Arlington Recover For All Types Of Bus Accidents
Over the past decade, dozens of tour bus companies have been shut down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
In 2012 alone, the agency ordered a whopping 26 commercial bus entities to cease operations because of a handful of safety violations, including truck brake failures, inadequate driver qualifications, failure to maintain, service and repair specific commercial vehicles, drunk drivers and even those found asleep at the wheel because they are working beyond allotted hours-of-service mandates.
Sadly, many of these violations caused unnecessary bus accidents that resulted in serious injury to both riding passengers and others involved in the collision.

Smartphone, iPods, Fitbits, you name it; these on-the-go technological devices are everywhere and a part of our 21st century love for digital.

The Need For A Skillful Attorney To Handle Your Arlington Truck Accident Claim
The Continued Rise In Texas 18-Wheeler Accidents
Ask any driver and they will likely agree that Texas highways and roads have many more semis and 18-wheeler commercial trucks these days than in years past. Why? The discovery of oil has produced fracking production and increased the need for commercial vehicles to haul materials, equipment and water.
Sadly, this has led to a rise in truck accidents. Over the past decade, Texas has seen a dramatic rise in semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and garbage trucks on highways all across the state.
In 2009, roughly 350 commercial vehicle accidents occurred on Texas roadways. By 2013, that number increased by 51 percent, rising to just over 530 incidents.
And its likely individuals in these accidents are suffering much more catastrophic injuries simply because of the size of a commercial vehicle and the damage it can do.
Choosing Green Law Texas
Attorney Loren Green has over a decade of experience handling these types of claims for individuals located in Arlington, Texas, and the surrounding areas. We know the drastic effects of a trucking accident and have helped those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, amputations, neck injuries, and more recover compensation for accidents sustained in a trucking accident.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Due to the damage these vehicles can and do cause, many people have also lost their lives. Fortunately, the state of Texas allows a surviving relative to bring a wrongful death lawsuit if the "wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default" of a driver causes the death of another.
The qualified relative can obtain monetary damages for themselves and for the estate of the deceased. If you've lost a loved one in an 18-wheeler accident, let our attorneys help.
Drunk Driving Accidents

In 2015, data provided by the Texas Department of Transportation shows that almost 1,000 individuals killed in auto accidents across the state lost their lives because of a drunk driver.

Fortunately, individuals who have been injured in any type of car accident — as well as family members who have lost loved ones in any type of motor vehicle accident — can seek legal recourse for the careless actions of others.

Fatal Auto Accidents
Handling Catastrophic Injuries And Wrongful Death Lawsuits For Arlington

Helping Individuals And Families Obtain Compensation For Motorcycle Injuries And Deaths
According to the most recent information provided by the Insurance Information Institute from 2014, motorcyclists were five times more likely to be injured and 27 times more likely to be killed in an auto accident than a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle.
This comes as no surprise; motorcyclists do not have a protective shield like cars, SUVs and trucks. Injuries and deaths from head trauma and spinal cord damage are common.
At Green Law Texas, our Arlington, Texas, attorneys are here to help injured parties and their families with the legal process.

Why You Need An Experienced Attorney For Your Bicycle Accident Claim
According to up-to-date data from the Texas Department of Transportation, over 50 bicycle or pedal cyclist fatalities occurred in 2015, up 2 percent from the year before. We are approaching 2017 and, although the data isn't available, that number is likely higher.
This is no surprise, given more and more bikers are taking to the streets amid the green movement. Unfortunately, more bicyclists on the roads mean a higher likelihood of being involved in a collision with a motor vehicle, particularly amid today's distracted driving epidemic.
However, bikers who have suffered spinal cord injuries, broken bones or other types of injuries can turn to the legal process for recourse, but the process involved is complex and often involves pitfalls.
The Pitfalls Of A Bicycle Injury Claim
Overcoming such obstacles can be done — with the help of an experienced attorney.

Wrongful Death Accidents
What Is Wrongful Death In Texas?
In Texas, a "wrongful death" is the death of a person caused by the "negligent, reckless, intentional or criminal" actions of another person, government body, or business or other entity.
Wrongful death cases are similar to personal injury claims, but the marked difference between the two is that with a wrongful death claim, the individual who suffered the injury is no longer able to bring his or her claim to court.
Who May File A Wrongful Death Claim In Texas?
A wrongful death case must be brought by a qualified relative or executor of the decedent's estate.
When it comes to the wrongful death of a child, Texas law stipulates different avenues through which parents or family members may receive the compensation they deserve.
Texas law allows two types of recoverable damages for wrongful death claims.
Types Of Recovery Available: Tangible And Intangible Damages
The first is the "full value of the life of the deceased." This type of recovery includes both tangible financial values and intangible values of the deceased child's life such as:
A jury may elect to award these damages depending on the age of the child and to what degree his or her future earnings can be shown.
Additional Recovery Available: The Deceased's Financial Losses
The second is specifically for financial losses as a direct result of the child's death, such as medical expenses and funeral costs. Damages that can be recovered in this type of claim include:
Time Limits On Texas Wrongful Death Claims
There is a strict two-year time frame in which to file and recover for wrongful death cases in Texas. However, there are cases in which this time may be paused or elongated, such as pending criminal cases relating to the incident or if the deceased's estate is not probated.
Contact Our Office – But Do Not Wait Too Long
If you have any questions concerning the wrongful death of a child, do not hesitate to contact Green Law Texas in Arlington at 817-522-3605. We will fight hard to recover the damages you and your family so desperately deserve.
But don't wait too long. The right to bring a claim disappears after the two-year limitations period has passed.
Answers To Common Car Accident Questions
Countless people will be involved in a serious car accident at some point in their lives, but many have no idea what to do when it happens.
Here are answers to common questions many individuals have found helpful:
At Green Law Texas, we charge no fee and do not get paid unless we obtain a recovery for you. You can call us today at 817-522-3605 to schedule a free consultation and learn more.
At Green Law Texas, the individual working on your case will deal with many legal matters on your behalf, including:
If the other driver was clearly at fault and you suffered significant injuries, a settlement from the insurance company is probable. Without an attorney, however, you will likely not receive maximum compensation under the law.
Insurance companies aim to maximize profits by minimizing payouts to victims. They are not your advocate. Only an experienced attorney can help get you the money you deserve following your car accident.
Remember: You only get one opportunity to obtain fair and just compensation for your injuries. There are no take-backs or "do-overs" with regard to any settlement offers.
Attorney Loren Green can help you understand the potential value of your claim. Typically, compensation is based on your:
At Green Law Texas, our attorneys will conduct an exhaustive search to determine your insurance coverage to help you obtain compensation for critical injuries and pain and suffering.
There are three main actions you can take after your car accident that will help your attorney and may dramatically improve the outcome of your case:
1. Seek Medical Attention
Seeking medical attention after your auto accident is crucial — even if you don't feel any pain or don't think you were injured. Shock often prevents the human body from feeling real pain at first. Further, many injures also do not appear until days after an accident.
Getting treatment will help rule out serious injuries but will also strengthen your personal injury claim. Holding off on medical attention makes it harder to connect the injuries to your auto accident.
2. Take Pictures Of Your Injures
Take a selfie or ask a family member or a friend to take pictures of all of your injures after your accident. Photographic evidence is extremely valuable in a personal injury case and can be useful if an insurance company impedes your ability to recover the compensation you deserve. It is also helpful if you decide to hire a personal injury attorney.
3. Take Notes, Keep Documentation
It's important to keep notes regarding correspondence with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and any other medical professional you see for your injuries. This includes phone calls, emails and office visits.
It's also important to keep receipts for all medical bills, including prescribed medications and assistive devices, during your treatment. A record of all of these will strengthen your case.
When you purchase auto insurance, your contract (known as your policy) stipulates how much money the insurance company will pay out for certain claims. Depending on your situation, your medical bills may exceed your policy limitations.
To shield you and your family from personal responsibility, the state of Texas requires drivers to purchase auto insurance policies that carry liability coverage for injuries THEY cause to OTHER people or other people's property. This type of liability does NOT pay for your injuries.
Some drivers opt to purchase uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which pays for their injuries if the at-fault driver does not have any or enough insurance coverage, but this is not mandated. This may not have been included in your policy.
People tend to believe that all lawyers are the same and obtain the same results. This could not be further from the truth. Click here to find out how we are different.
Occasionally, law enforcement officers will place a hold on a vehicle and prevent anyone from accessing the car so that it can be inspected and photographed and remain undisturbed by outside factors.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is a great place to obtain information regarding a specific vehicle's safety standards and ratings.
