20 Year Old Killed in Dallas Rollover Accident

A 20 year old man driving a minivan on eastbound I-20 was killed Sunday night, September 23, 2012 in Dallas, Texas after a tragic rollover accident.  Dallas County Sheriff's deputies believe the man was ejected from the vehicle and the the vehicle rolled over him, after he lost control of the vehicle causing it to spin and flip. 

Tragic automobile accidents causing serious personal injuries or death to drivers and/or passengers seem to occur on a weekly, if not daily, basis in the Dallas Forth Worth metroplex.  No matter who or what is responsible for each motor vehicle crash, you should contact a personal injury lawyer who is trained in handling motor vehicle accident cases to assist in the investigation of your case in order to determine the cause of the accident.

Automobile manufacturers know that motor vehicles sold will be involved in automobile accidents and have legal duties to make these automobiles safe and crashworthy.  Product liability law protects drivers and passengers who are seriously injured and/or families who lose a loved one due to wrongful death in rollover accidents, tire defect cases, defective airbag cases, and defective seatbelt cases in which the motor vehicle was not manufactured safely and crashworthy.

If you have suffered serious personal injury or lost a loved one due to wrongful death as a result of a rollover accident or any type of automobile accident, call Corpus Christi, Tx product liability and automobile accident lawyer Sheadyn R. Rogers of Rogers Law Firm at (361) 356-6057 for a free consultation concerning your case.

Dallas, Arlington, and Garland, Tx Fare Poorly in Recent Car Crash Study

Allstate Insurance just released its 8th annual Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report™ rating various cities in the United States for automobile driving safety.  Out of 200 of the largest cities in population in the United States, Dallas ranked No. 167 on the list (with number 1 being the city with the fewest vehicle crashes and number 200 being the city with the most).

The statistics get even worse.  According to Allstate's report, Dallas, Tx motor vehicle drivers are likely to have an automobile accident once every 7.5 years on average — almost 33 percent higher than the national average of one car crash every decade.

Only two big Texas cities fared worse than Dallas in Allstate's report - Garland at 7.1 years between automobile accidents and Arlington at 7.4 years on average between automobile accidents.

Opening Statements in Texas Personal Injury Lawsuits - The Appetizer

This is part 2 of my 4 part series on Texas jury trials involving personal injury lawsuits.  Part 1 focused on voir dire - the process of jury selection.  The second stage after the jury is selected and impaneled in a Texas personal injury lawsuit is the opening statements.

I like to think of opening statements as providing the jury a high quality appetizer to the full course meal that involves presenting an effective case to the jury during a trial.  The goal of an effective personal injury jury trial is to persuasively present your client's case to the jury, the injustice that has occurred, and to provide the jury the plan to cure such injustice.

After the jury is impaneled, the Judge will read the jury a set of instructions (rules) to follow during their jury service.  Once this has been completed, the Judge will begin opening statements.  Each party's attorney will be given the chance to present an opening statement, with the attorney for the Plaintiff(s) going first, and the attorney(s) for each Defendant to follow.

Whether your case involves a car accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident, work related accident, premise liability accident, or any civil litigation, the purpose of the opening statement for the personal injury lawyer is to further discuss what your client's case is about and to provide a roadmap to the jury as to what you expect to prove during trial and what you beleve the evidence will show.  But most importantly, the opening statement is the attorney's chance to build further rapport with the jury members and to humanize his or her client.  An effective opening statement should be succint, and the attorney should make sure that he or she makes eye contact with every single member of the jury panel during his or her statement.  An effective and persuasive personal injury lawyer should further describe his or her client and provide a quick and intriguing taste of the tragic circumstances involving his or her client's injuries.

If you have suffered serious personal injury or lost a loved one due to wrongful death in an automobile accident, trucking accident, eighteen wheeler accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident, or work related accident, call Corpus Christi Tx Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer Sheadyn R. Rogers of the Law Offices of Sheadyn R. Rogers, P.C. d/b/a Rogers Law Firm at (361) 356-6057 today for expert legal help.
