If you suffered a serious injury or lost someone you cherish in a car accident in Brownsville, it’s important to be aware of your rights. Your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs incurred due to your injury could be paid by the responsible party. You should never have to suffer because of someone else’s poor decision or reckless behavior, and such people should be held accountable for their judgment and misconduct.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer?
Yes, we recommend that anyone who has been involved in a serious motor vehicle accident seek experienced legal representation. After your accident, you may be dealing with complicated questions such as, how will these mounting medical bills get paid? How long will I have to continue to miss work? Who is responsible for the accident?
As a victim, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the costs that you have incurred as result of someone else’s decisions at no fault of your own. These costs include things like medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and more. However, without a lawyer, it is unlikely that you will receive the full amount of compensation you deserve as people without attorneys typically receive far less in their awards than those who do seek legal representation.
The legal process can be mystifying and difficult to conquer. Let the legal team at The Benton Law Firm handle the paperwork and phone calls with tough insurance companies so that you can recover what you deserve and focus on your health without the added stress of having to deal with the legal issues on your own.

Types of cases we handle
The personal injury lawyers at The Benton Law Firm Firm have handled thousands of cases relating to motor vehicle accidents. We are prepared to help you if you have been injured in one of the following types of accidents, or any accident that is not listed below:
Truck Accidents – Truck drivers must be held to a high level of responsibility as their job is to safely and effectively maneuver 40- ton vehicles on Dallas roads on a daily basis. Truck accidents are usually caused by distraction, fatigue and inclement weather.
Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcyclists can succumb to critical injuries more frequently than other drivers on the road. Additionally, the likelihood of fatality after an injury dramatically increases for those on motorcycles.
Pedestrian Accidents – Many pedestrian accidents are a result of drivers acting negligently and not yielding to those on crosswalks or sidewalks. The attorneys at The Benton Law Firm will work diligently to ensure that your rights as a pedestrian are protected and well represented.
Rollover Accidents – Rollover accidents are especially frightening for those involved. At The Benton Law Firm, we are experienced in representing clients who were victimized by drunk, reckless or careless drivers who commit tragic errors of judgment.
Speeding Accidents – Speeding is a perilous act that can cause a driver to reduce his ability to react quickly, to make sharp turns or to adhere to the direction of red lights or stop signs. Those who speed on the road are more prone to skidding and hydroplaning and in general lose visibility of the road conditions as result of their speed.
Road Defects – We advise that drivers avoid roads that are faulty or have dangerous road defects. However, drivers are not always aware of the street conditions before they travel. Some examples of road defects include potholes, lack of lights or signs, uneven shoulders, and improperly salted roads during icy conditions.
Mechanical Defects/Malfunctions – Mechanical errors that are commonly found to be the result of an accident include faulty brakes, steering system failure, poor tire traction, malfunctioning wipers and burned out head and tail lights.
Drunk Driving Accidents – Excessive alcohol consumption can cause the lives of other drivers on the road to tragically change. Drunk driving causes drivers to perform poorly and induces drowsiness, an inability to focus, impulsive decision making and can lead to someone to make irrational choices. The attorneys at The Benton Law Firm have no tolerance for drunk drivers who cause injury to others, and we will work tirelessly to ensure to fight on your behalf against a drunk driver.
Insurance Claims – We are familiar with the tactics used by insurance companies to underpay or avoid paying policyholders who deserve compensation. At The Benton Law Firm we are familiar with filing first party and third party claims and know the signs of an insurance company working in bad faith.
If you are injured in a car crash, you may be forced to deal with serious injuries including:
- Broken bones – Broken bones can cause someone to be out of work for an extended period. This means that wages are lost and that your life has been severely impacted by a car accident caused by someone else’s reckless decisions. We also understand that broken bones can affect your family, friends and mental well-being. We are dedicated to supporting and fighting for those who were impacted by car crashes.
- Spinal cord injuries – Spinal cord injuries and impairment can be exceedingly difficult to reconcile with. We understand how severely a spinal injury can affect your life and will provide you with the compassion and sympathy you need during this challenging time.
- Brain injuries – The severity of brain injuries can vary widely. However, severe trauma can lead to serious conditions. As car accidents are a significant cause of most brain injuries, we are prepared to fight for you to help you recover the compensation you are owed.
- Internal bleeding – If you suffered internal bleeding as a result of a car crash we are aware of the catastrophic effects this can have on your health. The attorneys at The Benton Law Firm are familiar with successfully representing clients who have suffered internal bleeding as a result of a car crash.
- Burns – Car fires caused by the impact can leave victims seriously burned and injured. The type of burn can range from first to fourth degree and can cause permanent scarring and damage. We are prepared to help you recover the damages you deserve for the medical expenses you incurred as a result of your burns.
