How to Protect Yourself from Car Accident Fraud

Yes, criminals fake car accidents. But it’s not the rough-looking types. Doctors and lawyers are in on it too. Learn what to do and how to protect yourself.
Car accident fraud? Really? Sounds amazing at first. But it happens. Los Angeles is the nation’s capital of car accident fraud.

And it’s not criminal lowlifes who do this. Instead, doctors diagnose fake injuries, lawyers file fake claims, fake witnesses support the story, and “victims” fake the crash.

Is this really a big problem?

You bet it is. Los Angeles had 7,700 fraudulent accidents in 2012.

In fact, Los Angeles recently got a $6.9 million grant to end this.

Here’s how it usually works: You’re targeted. One car quickly cuts in front of you. Another car cuts in front of that car. So now there’s two cars in front of you. The car at the front slams its breaks, and you slam into the car in front of you. It’s […]

New Research Reveals How Deadly Texas’ Highways Are

How unsafe are Texas’ highways? Should you be highly concerned? What can you do to stay safe? Find out the truth in this post.
What’s one of the first things you talk about with your coworkers when you make it to the office each morning?

The crazy drivers on the road, right?

Should that guy weaving in and out of traffic even have a license? What about the person that passed you on the right at the stop light?

Or that driver this morning who just had to turn right in front of you… and drive 10 miles below the speed limit. And then you have that idiot who drives on your tail for miles…

Sometimes, you’re just happy to make it to work and home again without someone rearranging the bumper on your car.

But in Texas, are you really justified in your beliefs about other drivers? Are they more dangerous than other drivers across […]

FAQs About Car Accidents and Your Legal Rights

Can you recover money for your injuries in Texas if you weren’t wearing your seatbelt? Find out the answer to that and other questions in this post.
Getting in a car accident causes a thousand questions to race through your head. And you know law is complex. So it’s possible many things will come up that you didn’t even know to think of.

Here are some Plain English answers to 6 common questions:

Can I still recover money if I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt and the other driver was at fault?

Yes you can. Some states don’t let you recover money at all. But in Texas, the Supreme Court is more sensible than that and ruled in 2015 the amount you can recover, but it can be reduced.

There are no guarantees on how that will actually work out for you. But make sure you wear your seatbelt anyway… you don’t want to have […]

Our client was traveling westbound at the 6200 block of W Northwest Hwy in Dallas, TX approaching the intersection of 9500 Pickwick Lane.

How to Stop Car Accidents Caused by Cell Phones

It’s entirely possible to have zero deaths on our highways because of cell phone use. Texas ranks second in the nation for such deaths.
The National Safety Council’s 2014 Injury Facts report says cell phone use has caused 26% of all motor vehicle crashes. A surprising statistic comes next: just 5% involve texting, compared to 21% that involved talking on handheld cell phones, or using them hands free.

So interestingly, while everyone wants to talk about texting while driving (which is certainly important), it looks like talking on cell phones while driving causes more accidents.

And adults, you can’t just blame teens for causing all the accidents. We weren’t able to find reliable data on accident rates, but this infographic shows 13% of drivers 18-20 involved in car wrecks admitted to using their cell phones while driving. And those are just the ones that admitted to it. One problem with this statistical data is […]
