Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
If your accident involves serious medical expenses, substantial lost wages due to time out of work, or if it resulted in permanent disability or your loved one’s death, it is likely that you will be entitled to a substantial settlement. Whether or not the insurance company will compensate you fairly is a completely different question. The job of a Dallas personal injury lawyer is to help injured victims understand their right to compensation and then pursue that compensation via an insurance claim and, if necessary, a lawsuit. Doing so requires gathering and submitting evidence that proves the defendant’s negligence caused a serious injury or death. Additionally, many injury claims involve uninsured drivers, government entities, or large companies. Each of these situations presents unique challenges to securing a fair settlement. The assistance of a personal injury attorney is extremely beneficial for those left dealing with significant physical limitations, emotional trauma, and financial burdens. We aim to bring our clients the convenience of having a professional handle their claim, as well as provide the knowledge and experience they need to resolve the claim in a satisfactory manner.

Let Us Help You Seek Justice For Your Injuries
We Can Handle Your Personal Injury Case
Our firm is focused on helping victims of the most serious accidents and acts of negligence. As such, our attorneys concentrate in specific areas of personal injury law, including:
Any type of accident might lead to a brain injury if it is serious enough – auto, workplace, slip and fall, etc. Like all cases, you will need to establish negligence and liability. But in these cases, accounting for the full effects of the injury is vital to reaching a fair resolution. If the injury occurred to a child, it may result in a life-long disability that requires professional health care. An adult who suffers a brain injury may be unable to continue working and, thus, unable to earn a living. These are factors for which insurance companies may not account when making you a settlement offer. Julie and her team will account for them so you reach a fair settlement.
Whether you were riding DART, Greyhound, or a private carrier, if you were injured as a passenger on a bus or were hit by a bus, you are entitled to file a claim against the negligent party. Bus companies may be vicariously liable for their drivers’ negligent actions, so the defendant is likely to be the company employing the bus driver. Julie Johnson sort out these details for you and get the evidence necessary to hold a negligent driver and bus company liable for your damages.
The city of Dallas boasts some of the highest traffic accident numbers in the state of Texas. When you look at the numerous highways in and around the city along with the commuting traffic from nearby suburbs, it makes sense that we see a lot of incidents in our area. But if you or someone close to you was in a wreck, the statistics likely mean little to you. We work with each client to assess her damages, the effects of the wreck on her life, and any unique factors present in the case. Julie makes sure her clients get the compensation they deserve and will pursue a claim all the way to court when necessary.
Our doctors prescribe medication to cure what ails us, but there are several drugs on the market whose side effects can be worse than the conditions they treat. If a drug company produces a medication that causes severe complications, then it may be liable for patients’ damages. These can be very complicated cases, so if you suspect a drug caused your severe side effects, work with Julie and her team to evaluate the case. You may be able to establish liability on various grounds, from strict liability to negligence for not reporting known side effects.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Accidents caused by drunk drivers often result in more catastrophic injuries. This is because drunk drivers’ behavior behind the wheel is more erratic, abrupt, and the accidents often occur at high rates of speed. Julie Johnson helps the victims of drunk drivers seek compensation for their injuries. Victims of these accidents should also know that the outcome of a criminal case against the drunk driver does not necessarily dictate how the civil case will go. The burden of proof is lower for civil claims compared to criminal cases. Julie works diligently to obtain the evidence for your civil injury claim that proves the drunk driver’s negligence and entitles you to a fair settlement.
Motorcyclists often get an unfair reputation for being reckless drivers and, in some cases, receive little sympathy for being involved in a traffic accident. The truth is, even cautious and experienced riders can find themselves seriously injured in a crash when other drivers are negligent. And in many cases, it is the driver of a passenger vehicle who caused the wreck. If you were cut off, side-swiped, or otherwise compromised while riding your motorcycle, the negligent driver is liable for your injuries and damages. Julie Johnson helps motorcyclists across the Dallas area secure fair settlements for their injuries and long-term damages.
Big cities like Dallas are always encouraging more pedestrian-friendly development to cut down on traffic congestion and promote healthy neighborhoods. As wonderful as these initiatives are, they can also put pedestrians at a higher risk of injury when there is inadequate attention paid to their safety. Aside from city improvements like more sidewalks and pedestrian-friendly areas, drivers need to pay close attention to driving responsibly when people are walking and biking near the streets. If you were on foot, on a bike, on a skateboard, or on any other non-powered transportation and you were hit by a vehicle, Julie Johnson can help you file an injury claim against a distracted or negligent driver.
A cracked sidewalk, a broken staircase, a wet floor – these are all simple hazards that property owners should address as soon as they discover them. Unfortunately, the owners of public properties such as parks, stores, and businesses do not always attend to these corrections until someone has been hurt. If you were injured while legally on another’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your damages. Julie Johnson helps her clients determine who was liable for upkeep of the hazardous area, develops the evidence necessary to show they neglected to fix the hazard, and proves that her clients deserve compensation for the injuries they suffered due to that negligence.
Dallas is a busy area for semi truck transit and on any given day there are hundreds of big rigs going in and out of our city. Along with the hustle and bustle of our regular commuting traffic, semi truck accidents are an unfortunate reality. Truck accidents often result in catastrophic damages, permanent injuries, or death due to the difference in vehicle size. The monetary damages resulting from a truck accident can easily cross into the hundreds of thousands, even millions, and the truck company insurer often will not settle these claims easily. Secure help from a Dallas personal injury lawyer who knows how to handle cases against truck company insurers – call Julie today.
Your employer has workers’ compensation insurance on you for a reason, and even if the accident was not due to another’s negligence, you should still be entitled to benefits if you were hurt on the job. But some insurers do not have the proper insurance, fail to recognize an employee’s valid case, or try to stop benefits too soon. These cases can get complex and complicated when insurers argue about whether an injury is work-related or argue the disability created by the injury. Talk to Julie Johnson about your case and what benefits you deserve. Julie can help you make sure you are getting the full range of benefits and the recovery time to which you are entitled.
The loss of a loved one does not have to be made even harder by insurance companies refusing to pay your family the right amounts of compensation. Your wrongful death claim should account for the permanent loss of a family member’s emotional and financial contributions to loved ones. Julie’s focus is on making sure your family is financially set to handle the economic impact of your loved one’s loss, and is fairly compensated for the emotional losses as well. There are long-term damages for which your claim should account, so work with Julie to identify all of your damages and present them to the insurance company.

Who Should you Choose for a Dallas Personal Injury Attorney?
5 Tips to Choose the Right One for You
1. How to Narrow Your Search
2. Questions to Ask During Interviews
Who Will I Work With?Oftentimes, a practice might have a group of attorney that work with their clients. In some cases, the person that you interview may not be the person that is assigned to work with you. Find out exactly who will be working with you and request to meet with that person specifically before making your decision. When you hire a partner, they might choose a less experienced junior partner to assign to your case. Furthermore, just because you connect with one attorney in a practice, doesn’t mean you will feel equally compatible with all of the attorneys working in the practice. You want to be sure that you feel comfortable with the exact person that will be representing you.
Credentials and ExperienceWhile all Dallas personal injury attorneys are required to pass the bar, some might have additional credentials or experience that lend to their suitability.
Payment for ServicesMost Dallas personal injury attorneys will be paid off of a percentage of your settlement. However, they may or may not require an upfront retainer. Find out the exact method of payment expected, including percentage rate and when payment is required.
How Do They Feel About Your Case?While an initial meeting isn’t the time to review every detail of your case, you should offer candidates a general summary of your circumstances. They probably won’t be able to guarantee the outcome, but they will at least be able to tell you if they think your case is legitimate and if they feel confident in providing you with representation. In the event that your lawsuit goes to trial, you want to be sure that the attorney you choose believes in your case.
