Choose The Benton Law Firm to Handle Your Personal Injury Case
The personal injury lawyers at The Benton Law Firm in Dallas have centered their legal careers around helping the victims of another person’s negligence receive justice. The injuries you face after a serious accident may have life-altering effects, including pain and suffering, exorbitant medical bills, and even loss of income if you are unable to return to work.
We understand the frustration and anger you must be feeling after your accident, and we will work with you so that you can begin healing.
Unfortunately, injuries are a common fact of life. From vehicle accidents to workplace accidents, pharmaceutical drug injuries, all the way to wrongful deaths.
Often, people are injured because of circumstances that are entirely out of their control. Sometimes, these accidents occur even if no one directly caused them, such as when a storm caused damage to someone’s home or car.
In other cases, however, the way a person acted or failed to act may have caused an accident to happen, such as when a homeowner failed to repair their damaged porch, or a driver caused an accident while texting.
In these situations, another person’s reckless or negligent behavior directly caused an accident, which may result in an injury or monetary loss to you or your loved ones. You should not be forced to pay for the consequences of another person’s actions, especially when you had no part in the resulting accident.
When these types of accidents occur, sometimes they cause significant injuries. This is when you need an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer on your side to help you fight back.
Whether you want to understand your rights after an accident, or you have decided to pursue a lawsuit, our legal team is prepared to help you understand the best steps to take moving forward.
We have the necessary legal experience to help you build a strong case and help you to receive the compensation you need.

Dallas Personal Injury Attorneys: Cases We Handle
Injuries may come in many different forms due to the number of different ways we interact with people. You may have been injured by someone’s actions directly, like if they were behaving in a way that was unsafe or reckless, or your injury may have been the unintended result of a person’s actions, such as when a person makes a critical mistake or fails to perform their required duties.
Each of these types of personal injury cases can have a wide variety of legal consequences and impacts, and it is important to understand the full scope of your injury in order to receive appropriate compensation.
This is why the legal team at The Benton Law Firm is prepared to work with you in a number of different situations in which an injury could occur.
If you’d like to know more, reach out to us today for a free consultation.

Texas Accident Statistics
In 2021 in the United States, there were 306,086 reported injury deaths, and 45,404 of those were caused by motor vehicle accidents.
Texas has seen its share of car crashes. The Texas Department of Transportation reports that from 2020 to 2021, Texas experienced an increase in motor vehicle traffic fatalities, with the 2021 death toll of 4,489 being a 15.22% increase from the 3,896 deaths recorded in 2020.
On top of that, 15,764 serious injury crashes occurred in Texas in 2021, with 19,448 people sustaining severe injuries. Clearly, car crashes in Texas are on the rise and cause significant harm to those involved.
In 2021, Texas saw a fatal motor vehicle crash every 1 hour 57 minutes, an injury crash every 2 minutes 12 seconds, and a reportable crash every 57 seconds. In the same year, 239,539 people were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes, and 521 motorcyclists (operators and passengers) were killed. 45% of those motorcyclists killed were not wearing helmets at the time of the crash. Furthermore, 824 pedestrian fatalities occurred in 2021, a 15.24% increase from 2020.
Texas's accident statistics show that, in 2021, most traffic fatalities occurred in rural areas, accounting for 51.04% of deaths. Additionally, single-vehicle, run-off-the-road crashes resulted in 1,550 deaths this year, accounting for 34.53% of all motor vehicle traffic deaths in Texas.
Tragically, 2021 was the second deadliest year for traffic fatalities in Texas since the state started tracking them in 1940. These statistics demonstrate the real dangers of driving on Texas roads.

Mr. Benton represented me in a personal injury lawsuit that happened while I was traveling from NJ (my hometown) to Dallas. This was my first (and hopefully only) experience filing a lawsuit and I was unfamiliar with the entire process and didn’t know what to expect.

He did not set false expectations and he was very patient, taking care to explain every step of the process to me so I was able to make informed decisions. I must say it was positively refreshing being able to trust him completely handling my case – especially since he was 2,000 miles away!”T.M.

First time experience, didn’t know what to do. The company at fault ignored all peaceful attempts so I found a law firm with motorcycle law and background. Even if a person admits fault doesn’t mean the company representing them will. It took time like these things do, I had to understand that. But everything ended up well. I give thanks to Yasmin Castro at the Benton and her GM that helped as well.Chris Carlyon

Throughout this process, I experienced many firsts; I retained my first Lawyer, I went through my first major accident, and I was genuinely unsure on how to move forward with life at that given point. The Benton Law Firm was recommended by one of Mr. Benton’s former colleagues which was a mutual friend. Jeff immediately showed understanding and compassion for the situation I faced. Furthermore, he was straight forward in conveying what to expect through the entire process. Jeff and his staff truly made my case a priority. Jeff was constantly available throughout this difficult time in my life. I cannot emphasize enough on how wonderful it feels to actually converse with Mr. Benton and know that he is dedicated in seeing your interests met. Jeff, thank you for putting all of your clients as a number one priority and on the top of your list. I would not hesitate to recommend the Benton Law Firm to anyone in need of professional, courteous and solid representation.Pbzepln07

I called Benton law firm after being denied by another attorney. They quickly went to work on my case and settled it. I am satisfied and highly recommend this firm to anyone that wants a fast and reputable approach to their law issues.Marshell Germany
When someone is in any type of automobile accident, you automatically become rattled and a bit nervous. Not only was I both rattled and nervous, I was inexperienced in this field of work. Jeff Benton was the first lawyer I had ever obtained, hired, and was counseled by. As soon as we met I stopped answering calls by other lawyers wanting to meet me. He met me near my home city and explained all of our options. It was a very smooth process and I basically got the medical care I desperately needed with no hindrance at all. Their office took care of EVERYTHING. I was kept in constant contact either via email or telephone and I never felt like I had been forgotten. My life could have changed for the worse but he helped me stay on my feet and progress forward. I’m obviously not his only client but I promise you; he made me feel like I was. I wish him and his office all the best and can only hope every lawyer on earth has his same work ethic and empathy. Jeff Benton and his staff exceeded all my expectations and then some. If you need a personal injury lawyer, look no further.Manuel Barrera
My experience at The Benton Law Firm was amazing the people there were very professional and friendly, I always felt like I was being taken care of , and the team at Benton Law Firm were always willing to help if I had any questions or concerns and responded in a timely fashion.

Jeff Benton was recommended to us through a friend after an accident. He helped to make a very difficult situation a lot easier to deal with and sort out. He took the time to come out and meet with us and to discuss in detail the process moving forward. We are so thankful for everything he was able to manage for us to take some of that stress and worry off of our plates. We appreciated his integrity as a person and his hard work for us. If you are looking for a personal injury attorney, we definitely recommend The Benton Law Firm.Nora Thompson
Jeff Benton and his legal team handled my auto accident claim with the utmost professionalism. He and Leon Kassab provided me with the best legal advice, and they not only ensured that i received the care that I needed post my accident, but they helped me recoup a fair and just settlement. Their knowledge of the law was impressive, and I felt like their advice was only took into consideration MY best interest. His paralegal Serena kept me abreast of all case updates, and made sure I was updated on my case status regularly. I would recommend the Benton Law Firm to any friends and family.Kim T
I’m terribly late in writing my review; not because of the service by any means though. The Benton Law Firm (as a whole ) far exceeded my expectations. Not that I really had any preconceived notions of lawyers other than Google searches and what I see on TV. Jeff Benton was the first attorney I’ve ever obtained – and after all of this… my only one. He is exceptional! From the first time I spoke to him he was honest and direct about his expectations regarding my case but he still made me feel like a real person vs just a case. He and his staff were always available and made me feel welcome too. Although I’ve never had an attorney, I knew within the first week of trying to handle my MVA that I was going to need one. I am SO glad that I chose Jeff Benton. He got the maximum amount available to be won in my case. I will certainly be referring others to Jeff and calling upon him in the future (that is if I need an attorney)! 🙂Skye Miller
I was referred by my mom and let me tell you this law firm did not disappoint! Charles Lars is amazing great communicator. When they say they will take care of you and take care of everything is 100% TRUE , Very transparent and up front. At first I did have a little rocky start with the case managers i had but once Charles came into the picture. It was so smooth and easy.Michelle Samarripa

His firm is prompt to respond to emails, phone calls, and even my text mssgs. Highly recommend this firm!Margie Mead

I will most definitely return to this firm if needed and be sharing this firm info with friends and family. Thank you again Benton Law firm.SET The Trainer
This is a great firm. Everyone is extremely helpful.Dan Max
I’m honestly very impressed and appreciative of Jeff Benton and his team. After my accident, I debated between more big name firms. Ultimately, though, his team was very assertive in working with me and committing to give their best effort to help me through the many aspects of my affairs. My Case Manager, Noemi, was fantastic in being pleasant and helpful when I had questions. They were able to push the insurer that we were working against to a much higher settlement than what was originally offered. I highly doubt that I could have done that without help. Moreover, they also got my medical bills down as well. Small, but tenacious law firm. Highly recommend scheduling a consultation.Warren Brown
The Benton Law Firm helped me with a personal injury case regarding a wreck I had with an armored vehicle earlier this year. Right off the bat, the driver and passenger of the armored truck were trying to make me feel as if I had done something wrong when I clearly had the right of way. I knew the impact took a toll on my body, and that I would only feel worse in the days and weeks to come. Jeff came as a recommendation from a friend and I’m so happy I called him! He met with me right away. I explained to him that I felt stiff and achy and he set up an appointment for me with a wonderful doctor. I won’t say that my experience with all of the doctors I met with was always a smooth one, but Jeff and his team were diligent in sorting all matters regarding my case. From medical to insurance to rental arrangements, The Benton Law Firm made it to where I could go about my normal schedule without interruption. Jeff and his paralegals kept in constant communication with me. If I sent an email or gave them a call, they got to me within half-a-day’s time. In less than a year, my case is about to settle and I am extremely satisfied with the process and outcome of it all. I appreciate that this experience has been brief and worry-free for me. It was refreshing to work with someone that was upfront and discerning about the way he approached my case. Jeff is definitely the guy to turn to for any personal injury cases.Maria Palmer
Having an accident is very unexpected and can cause a lot of frustration. I didn’t realize that trying to handle my on settlement with the opposing insurance company would be even worse. I was not at fault but the opposing insurance company tried to make it feel like it was and they were not willing to reimburse me for the damages on my car. After several frustrating attempts trying to handle it on my own I decided to get help. I contacted several attorneys who made me feel as if I was a waste of time. Until I found The Benton Law firm! From the very first phone call The Benton Law Firm was very kind and professional and explained all of my rights as well as how they were going to proceed with my case. The Benton Law Firm took all of the stress and frustration away from me and kept me in the loop throughout the case. The Benton Law Firm was able to get me back all my medical expense, car repair cost and a little extra. Working with The Benton Law Firm was great and I would recommend them to all my family and friends. Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate you and your services!!Veretta Jacobs
Anyone I’ve ever met at the Benton Law Firm have been nothing short of outstanding. They were personal and nice. Serena walker, the paralegal, updated my case status very quickly whenever I asked. Leon Kassab was a pleasure to work with and a great representation on my part. Honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else.Noshad Meghani
My experience with Benton Law firm was excellent, everyone was very kind. Karla helped me with my case and kept me updated with everything and helped me every step of the way to get what I deserved and needed. Honestly without their help I wouldn’t have gotten anything from my accident.Eliana Palacio
I received great response from the Benton law firm. The lawyers and staff were kind and helpful to me, and I have already mention the frim to a stranger. Also, I will recommended the firm to any family and friends in need. Both Mr. Benton and Mr. Lars are concerned and great lawyers.Melanie Smith
Jeff urged me to take my case to trial and we obtained a verdict for more than three times what the insurance company offered at mediation. Very personable, extremely professional, Jeff and his team worked my case efficiently, guiding me thru the process, keeping me updated frequently on status/progress, always giving me options explaining pros and cons and allowing me to make key decisions. As some of us may already know and experienced, personal injury cases can be long-drawn, and the complexities of dealing with multiple individuals and organizations can be overwhelming and stressful. Jeff and his team really made it all very easy and took away all the stress. I am fortunate to have Jeff on my sideNurani Parasuraman

I was hit by a 18 wheeler on 10/09/2018. My life changed forever ay that moment. One minute I was on my way to an interview for a better job and the next the roof of my car was ripped off and I came to with blood and rain covering my face and strangers running towards me from every direction. The doctors said that the honestly didn’t know how I even survived. And after coming out of the ICU for 5 days I was in the hospital for an additional 6 months total but while I was there I had 5 different attorneys trying to “help me”. However, after the police report found me at fault those attorneys that cared so much about my future would not even return my calls. So here I was not able to even walk no savings, no money coming in and not even a vehicle to get to the very needed weekly appointments. And then a lady messaged me on face book and told me about this law firm that was helping her husband and how kind and committed to getting justice for her husband. So, I called not very hopeful because EVERYONE else had turned me down due to the police report and the company is a major named corporation. When I called a gentleman named Jeff spoke with me and for the first time in months I had a little hope he explained to me that this was going to be a battle due to the police report and company but he said that if I was willing to be patient with him that he would do his best to help me. I received a call from a young lady named Ashley and she was so kind and very patient with me she has listened to me when I was a TOTAL mess and she has listened to me while I was a “firecracker” to put it kindly. However, she always remained the same kind hearted, encouraging and when she would tell me that she would handle something she meant just that everything from Ubers, imaging, doctors appointments and medications. She never lagged on her job even when COVID hit the world like a bomb she was still there returning my calls and handling my medical care. The Nolan my attorney, what a kind gentleman he is. He as well was up front and told me that this was going to be a battle and he and Jeff were 100% correct the company wanted to actually offer me 1,000 dollars and please understand I have permanent brain damage, now suffer seizures, can no longer run, dance or even walk for longer than five minutes without my walker and I’m only 44 yrs old. Nolan said no way and I received a amount that I am very thankful for and it was WAY more than 1.000 dollars. So, if you want someone that truly cares about you and your future someone that’s not going to charge you every time they speak to you and honestly has your back and isn’t just some meaningless commercial or catchy phrase on television Benton Law Firm is the right choice. Trust me they not only fought for me that actually helped give me stability financially for my future.Christina Mowrey

This was the first time I had ever experienced having to sue anyone for anything. Jeff Benton and Leon Kasab made everything seamless. Serena was the one that I spoke to most often. Her voice and demeanor over the phone was so calming, it was very nice talking to her. Meeting her in person is the same. She’s the best! When it came time for the deposition, I was a little nervous but Mr. Kasab just explained how it was going to be and what the purpose was, and I got through it just fine. I’m so glad I chose this firm to represent me!LeeAnne Scott

After I was side swiped by a delivery truck and broke my neck, they did everything they could to help. I was super weary, and had never done anything like this before. They guided me through the process and kept me up to date. The appointments I had to get to were quite far away, but I was unfortunately relocated pretty far away due to my injuries. Even still they did all they could and found a few doctors close enough. Would recommend.Rachel Cash

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions in Dallas, TX
Here are the short answers to some of the most common questions we receive:
What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a civil action brought against a person or entity who has caused an injury to another person, usually as the result of negligence.
n these lawsuits, the injured party seeks financial compensation for their damages, often from insurance carriers. Usually, these suits are filed by an experienced attorney, one that can represent victims and is well versed in personal injury matters.
Usually, these civil litigation actions are brought against individuals, or insurance providers, in an effort to recover the cost of medical treatment and/or lost wages — for example, an injury or loss of income caused by auto accidents.
What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a legal process whereby an injured person seeks compensation from the person or entity responsible for their injuries. In order to have a successful claim, you will need to prove that the other party was negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries.
For example, if you were in a car accident, you would need to prove that the other driver was at fault before you could receive compensation for your damages. The Dallas Personal Injury Attorneys from The Benton Law Firm are here to help successfully resolve your case.
What Is Negligence?
Negligence is defined as the failure to use reasonable care, which results in harm to another person. In order for someone to be considered negligent, they must have owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused you to suffer injuries as a result of their breach.
For example, all drivers owe other people on the road a duty of care to drive safely. If a driver breaches that duty by texting while driving and causes an accident, that would likely be considered negligent.
If that person causes an accident, you might be owed compensation.
Contact our law firm today if you have your own pressing questions about your personal injuries or case.
What Are the Different Types of Personal Injury Claims?
There are many different types of personal injury claims, but some of the most common include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and pharmaceutical drug injury.
However, we at The Benton Law Firm also have practice in the areas of wrongful death, work-related accidents, bicycle accidents, dog bites, burn injuries, brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries as well as product liability cases.
In an effort to best support injury victims recover their lost wages and medical expenses from someone else's negligence, we cover a range of service areas.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
The statute of limitations is the deadline you have to file a lawsuit. In Texas, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident.
This means that if you do not file your lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident, you will likely be barred from doing so.
It is important to note that there are some exceptions to this rule, so it is critical that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is filed in a timely manner.
How Much Will It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
We at The Benton Law Firm, as well as most personal injury lawyers, work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until we recover compensation for you in your case.
This allows you to get the legal help you need without having to pay any upfront costs, which could make your access to justice cost-prohibitive.
What Is the Average Settlement for a Personal Injury Claim?
There is no such thing as an 'average' settlement, as each personal injury law case is unique and the amount of compensation you recover will depend on a number of factors.
Some of the factors that will affect your settlement include the severity of your injuries, the amount of medical bills you have incurred, and whether you were able to return to work.
How Long Will It Take To Settle My Personal Injury Claim?
Again, there is no 'average' timeline for settling personal injury claims, as each case is unique and will progress at its own pace.
That being said, most claims do not go to trial and are instead resolved through negotiation and settlement between the parties involved.
What Factors Will Affect the Amount of My Settlement?
Some of the factors that will affect the amount of your settlement include the severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical bills, whether you missed work as a result of your injuries, and the pain and suffering you endured.
An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to evaluate your case and give you a better idea of what to expect in terms of a settlement.
What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured in an Accident?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, the first and most important thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if you think your injuries are minor, it is important to have them evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible.
After you have sought medical attention, you should reach out to an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and help you decide what the best course of action is.
How Can I Protect Myself After an Accident?
There are a few things you can do to protect yourself after an accident. First, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you do not think your injuries are serious. This will also ensure that you have a record of your injuries, which will be important if you decide to file a personal injury claim.
Second, it is important that you do not speak to the insurance company until you have spoken to an attorney. The insurance company will likely try to get you to give a statement, but anything you say could be used against you in your case.
Finally, it is important that you do not sign anything without first speaking to an attorney. Many insurance companies will try to get you to sign a release, but this could waive your right to file a personal injury claim.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to protect your rights against the insurance company and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
