Car Accident / Car Wreck

When a wreck causes a personal injury

While the Texas DOT limits its definition of serious injuries, we understand that any injury may be serious to the injured person.

Texas DOT statistics for 2017 showed 14,299 serious injury crashes, with 17,546 people sustaining a serious injury, and 3,794 deaths.  According to the Texas DOT in 2018, one person was injured every 2 minutes and 7 seconds on a Texas Roadway. 

Car accidents can have many causes but the most common include:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Driver Inattention
  • Drunk Driving
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive Driving

When car accidents happen, the resulting injuries can be serious. A serious injury can include everything from soft tissue injuries, bumps and bruises, fractures, torn ligaments, the loss of a limb, loss of the use of a limb, injury to the brain, paralyzation or death. Even in the case of minor injuries, any injury is serious that disrupts a victim’s life.  

 In addition to the physical pain, parties sometimes experience emotional distress, unexpected costs, and an inability to work. As the injured party, you may be able to take legal action in order to get reimbursed for these damages and to level the playing field with insurance companies who have their own interests in mind. Since navigating the legal process can be overwhelming, our team of experienced attorneys can help.

How a Personal Injury Attorney can help

In the case of an accident resulting in a serious injury, an attorney would work with you to document the events of the accident, information about the roadway (weather conditions, terrain, construction zones, posted signage, etc.), gather medical information including history and treatment.  The attorney would also advise you on what to anticipate during the course of your case.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an auto accident in Texas, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected. Insurance companies profit by paying as little as possible to automobile policy holders and those injured in an accident. For 20 years, the Marye Law firm has given personal attention to each client’s case. Prior to accepting any offers from the insurance company – talk to one of our experienced Serious Suits.

Kimberly Beemer vs. Life Like Corporation

$400,000 Settlement Value

Case Summary:

A fatigued driver with sleep apnea, who had just left work, fell asleep behind the wheel and hit Ms. Beemer head-on.  The fatigued driver’s employer, Life Like, tried to deny responsibility because the driver was not on the clock.  Under Texas law, if an employee is on the way home, the employer has no vicarious liability.

The company, however, could not produce the employee’s punch list from a new computerized payroll system.  After we met with the payroll software manufacturer in Florida, we hired an expert who refuted the explanation from the Life Like representative as to how the punches from the week of the accident were lost.

Case Results:

  • Kimberly Kay Beemer – minor client only
  • Settlement:  $400,000.00
  • Attorneys’ fees:  $133,333,33
  • Expenses:  $11,300.21
  • Minor client received:  $255,366.46

What Our Clients Are Saying

I got hurt on a cotton gin when the rollers on the condenser unit caught my arm and pulled me into the machine. My arm was smashed up to my elbow. I lost muscle and all my nerves and still have pain to this day. A local Lubbock lawyer dropped my case because my employer didn’t have workmen’s comp. I called Eric Marye and he worked on my case for about two years. We got real close to trial and at the second settlement meeting, my case settled for one and a half million dollars (Client received $900,000). He got my medical bills paid and I am getting a check every month from the insurance company for the rest of my life. I am definitely happy with the job Mr. Marye did for me and my family and would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney for a serious injury.

Jerry Alvarado

I hit an 18-wheeler that ran a stop sign on a highway in Louisiana. A local lawyer told me that he could get me $600,000 for my case if I was lucky. I had brain surgery and I couldn’t raise my arm. After hiring Eric Marye, he got me to a good doctor that told me I had a torn rotator cuff and operated on my shoulder. He also sent me to a doctor for my brain injury and a psychiatrist. He settled my case for almost two million dollars! (Client received $1,266,666.67.) I am getting a check each month for the rest of my life.

Lusty Harris

Eric, I thank u for everything u have done for me and my family. Thank u for caring so much for Jacob when u hadn’t even met him. U believed in all of us. Only God can put that kind of faith, hope, and heart-felt feelings in a good person like yourself. Your a dam good lawyer and a wonderful friend.

Emily Garcia

Eric and his staff did the most wonderful job helping me get a start in life after my work accident. I got shocked at work from a broken electric stove. My employer did not want to back me up so I hired Eric through my daughter, and he got a lot of experts and we went to trial on my case and won. We got everything we asked for and I ended up with a lot more money than I thought I could get, especially now that I am retired. If anyone needs a super lawyer, hire him because he is the best. Thanks again Eric.

Carolyn Moreno

When my wife was killed by an eighteen-wheeler, my family and I hired Eric Marye. Eric did a great job on the case. Not only was he a great lawyer, but he also became a friend. If you need a lawyer for an eighteen-wheeler accident, hire Eric.

Milton Jensen

Initially, I couldn’t find a lawyer willing to take my case. I was in a one-car accident on the job and had a head injury so I couldn’t remember what happened. Eric Marye found two witnesses and sued my company. The settlement was confidential, but I am very happy with what Eric did for me. My life would be much different if I hadn’t hired Eric Marye’s firm.
