The victim suffered multiple injuries, including a broken arm, a fractured shoulder, broken facial bones and several internal injuries.

Fortunately, our client was able to record the license plate number for the hit and run car, which was later determined to be a drunk driver. Our client suffered a broken foot and neck and back injuries. Because the drunk driver had limited insurance coverage, we also made a claim on our client’s insurance for under-insured motorists benefits or UIM.

Case Results: Settlement Reached for All Policy Limits
  • Client Hit by Uninsured Driver – We represented a client who was involved in a Dallas car accident when she was hit by another car that did not have any insurance.

18-Wheeler Truck Accidents

A truck accident in Dallas can have devastating effects.  Because of their sheer size and weight, these accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and death.  It takes an experienced law firm that understands how to approach a lawsuit involving trucking companies and their large legal teams.  Michael and Greg both have a long history of proven success achieving maximum compensation for clients who were injured or lost a loved one due to a truck accident.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death could be caused by a number of different accidents or factors. Whether it is a vehicle accident, slip and fall, medical malpractice, or other cause, chances are, we have experience with it.  While we understand no settlement or verdict could ever fill the void left by a loved one, we do know how important it is to hold those responsible accountable.  Compensation for a wrongful death can be integral for a family trying to recover after a tragedy, especially if the loved one who passed away was the primary bread-winner.

Our firm understands the grief and pain caused by the sudden death of a loved one and are dedicated to providing families the personal, compassionate service they need to get through such a difficult and trying time.

  • Medical Negligence – Mr. Guajardo represented the wife and children of an elderly man who died from a pulmonary embolism. The day before his death, the patient went to see his doctor, complaining of pain and swelling in his leg. Despite knowing that the patient had a previous blood clot in his leg years ago, the doctor never looked at the patient’s leg. He ordered a test to be done the next morning. The following day, the patient went to see the doctor again, and while waiting to see the doctor, he collapsed and died in the waiting room. It later was determined that a blood clot had broken loose in his leg and traveled into his lungs, which prevented him from being able to breathe. The case was tried in front of a jury in Fort Worth, Texas. The jury found the doctor was negligent and awarded the family $5.25 million. The judgment was subsequently reduced due to statutory damage caps, and the case was settled for a confidential amount. Case Results: $5.25 Million Awarded – Confidential Settlement
