Statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration have shown that car wrecks involving large trucks and buses (18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tow trucks, dump trucks, and other commercial vehicles weighing over 10,000 pounds) have increased in the past several years. These trucks, due to the nature of their size, can cause serious and permanent injuries to unsuspecting drivers and passengers of other vehicles on the road.
A dangerous premises/property can cause serious and life-altering injuries to unsuspecting patrons or guests. From a wet floor to falling merchandise or a hole in the ground, we have represented clients who have been injured while on the property of another. Premises liability claims…

“Do I really need a car wreck lawyer?”
Yes; so many people try to fight the big insurance company alone and usually end up regretting that decision.
“Even if it was just a minor car wreck or fender bender?”
Yes; you do not know the extent of the damage–both to your property and your body. Do not say you are fine until you know for sure!
Losing a loved one is a traumatizing and stressful time for the family of the deceased person. No amount of money can ever bring back your loved one. In fact, it can be tough talking about making money off the death of someone you love. But after the initial shock and grieving period, it is important that you hire a wrongful death attorney to help you. Why?

Our Personal Injury Process
- Protect Your Rights
- Medical Treatment
- Pre-Litigation Settlement
- Filing A Lawsuit
- Jury Trial
Insurance companies often take advantage of accident victims during the vulnerable time period following a traumatic incident. Our legal team will immediately take over all communication with the insurance companies to protect your rights. This includes preserving evidence and documenting the facts of the case while they are still fresh.
We will connect you with leading medical professionals in your area to diagnose and treat your injuries. If you are unable to afford medical treatment we can facilitate treatment on a medical lien basis, which means you pay nothing up front; rather, your medical bills are paid from the settlement proceeds at the conclusion of your case. After all injuries are diagnosed and treated we will be in a position to place an appropriate settlement value on your personal injury claim and begin negotiations with the insurance company.
All documentation supporting your claim will be organized into a “demand package” telling the story of your case to the at-fault insurance company. The insurance company will review these documents and respond in the form of an acceptance, a counter offer, or a rejection. Our office will communicate with you during this negotiation and you will have the final decision.
The majority of our cases settle in the pre-litigation stage, prior to filing a lawsuit. When your case settles, you will sign a settlement release that officially closes your case in exchange for the agreed amount of financial compensation. Our law firm will also negotiate with your medical providers to lower your bills and maximize the money in your pocket.
If the insurance company’s offer is unreasonable, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf. This process will elevate your claim and often results in higher settlement amounts. Our law firm will pay for the costs of litigating your case so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.
Although jury trials are rare, we prepare every case as though it will go before a jury. This requires gathering additional evidence and hiring experts who will testify in support of our case. A deposition is your opportunity to tell your story under oath. We also question the at-fault person under oath to gather crucial information we will use at mediation or trial.
Prior to a jury trial, your case will likely go before a mediator who is a neutral party responsible for listening to both sides of the case and making settlement recommendations. Your case may settle at this stage if the mediator can help the insurance company realize the full value of your case. Arbitration is similar to mediation and is required when we are collecting from your own insurance company, rather than the at-fault person’s insurance company.
This is the final step in getting you the compensation you deserve. Our experienced trial lawyers will present your case to a jury of your peers who will ultimately decide the amount of financial compensation they believe is fair after hearing all the evidence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law
The Matthew Pillado Difference.
Why Should I Get A Personal Injury Attorney Soon?
Most people delay calling a Dallas personal injury attorney to help them fight the insurance companies. This is what insurance companies want. The longer it takes the victim to hire a car wreck attorney the less likely you will get the property damage and personal injury money you deserve. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. The insurance companies do not care about your physical or mental health. They do not care if you are without a vehicle for weeks. They do not care that their insured’s negligence caused you property damage, medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish, physical impairment, permanent disfigurement and/or lost wages. They are just worried about their bottom line. It sounds confusing but our Texas car accident lawyers will explain the entire process of how you can get the money for your property damage, medical bills, pain and suffering, etc. Insurance companies have attorneys on staff, you should too. Call or text us at 1-800-672-3911.

What Is The Insurance Company Not Telling Me?
- Insurance companies do not want you to know of your rights.
- Insurance companies do not want you to know that you are entitled to be compensated for not only the injuries you sustained in a car wreck but also for how your life has changed because of those injuries.
- Insurance companies do not want you to get the full property damage you are owed.
You are entitled to monetary compensation for the pain you had to feel due to someone else’s negligence and for the everyday things that you can no longer do. That is what a good Texas accident attorney can ensure you receive. Call or text us at 1-800-672-3911.
