Dallas County Car and Truck Accident Attorney
A woman’s father was killed by a drunk driver who swerved into his lane and caused a head-on collision. While the drunk driver faced criminal charges, it was also possible for the woman to file a wrongful death lawsuit against him, seeking compensation for the death of her father. She turned to my law firm — the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C. — to handle the lawsuit. I worked hard for her and obtained a substantial wrongful death settlement from the drunk driver’s insurance company.
If you have been involved in a car accident or truck accident, I can represent you in Texas courts. At my Dallas law firm, I handle motor vehicle accident cases involving many different serious personal injuries and fatal accidents:
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and brain damage
- Neck injuries/whiplash
- Back injuries
- injuries to joints, including shoulders, knees and wrists
- Broken bones
- Scarring and disfigurement
For over 35 years, I have been representing plaintiffs in personal injury and wrong death litigation. I do not shy away from a fight for justice, especially when the fight is against a negligent driver who has caused serious harm.
I am AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system and am a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an elite group of trial lawyers made up of 1 percent of attorneys who have recovered million- or multimillion-dollar jury verdicts for their clients. While there is no way to predict the future and nothing can undo a crash, taking effective legal action can be the best way to move forward and reclaim your life.
Dallas Vehicle Defect Attorney Handling Car Accident Cases Involving Dangerous or Defective Vehicles
Sometimes car accidents or truck accidents are more complicated than they first appear. Investigations reveal that dangerous or defective car parts were really to blame for the accident — not driver negligence. In these cases, it is possible to file a lawsuit against the car manufacturer, holding the manufacturer accountable for the harm caused.
There are many different ways that cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles can be defective. They may have defective seat belts or air bags that fail to protect passengers in a car crash. SUVs may be designed to roll over more easily than they should, and their roofs may not be built to withstand the impact of a roll. Tires can also be defective. Their poor design can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and swerve into traffic.
