I have the best experience ever with Carabin & shaw and Mr Bates, when I had my accident back to August 2018 at that moment I hired different attorneys firm that had my case cold until March 2020 when I fired them and look to Carabin & Saw direccion and in the very first moment the started with my case with professionalism, transparency and to be honest with you, nothing I says will be enough to express how happy I am with Carabin and Shaw, I will recommend you to consider your options when you need an attorney.I hope newer needs to go through this kind of process any more because is very difficult for all the parties involved even more for who's been affected financially and also injured by the accident but if I need someone who is going to fight for my rights that law firm is going to be Carabin & Shaw

I have had nothing but a positive experience with the CS team. I appreciate Mrs. Ibarra taking time to explain the process and what to expect. She has a way to make you feel valued and conveys empathy. Her professionalism and dedication deserves recognition. I could not have made it this far in the process without her patience and and professionalism.

Jamie took my case and it wasn’t a easy one . He was compassionate to me and got me help. I am forever grateful. You have to appreciate a good lawyer . I just dealt with a bad lawyer who doesn’t care about you it was all about money. Jamie was by far honest and helpful he was also going to cut his fee because he wanted to help me . Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Forever grateful. Kimberleigh Horton

This is a great company. Everyone is so wonderful. They are easy to get a hold to and are very timely on responding back as well as keeping you updated. Unfortunately I’ve been in two incidents with the last two years and both incidents I’ve used them as my legal representation. I have nothing, but wonderful things to say about these guys. If I were ever to be involved in another incident they would be my first call most definitely. I would recommend any and every one in need of legal representation to come here.!

Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Dallas

Everyone makes mistakes; both drivers and pedestrians. But when it comes to fatal pedestrian accidents, nothing can seem more devastating or unfair. What starts out as an innocent street crossing can end in the tragic loss of life.

In those situations, a claim may still be successfully brought to recover the tremendous loss suffered by loved ones left behind. Dallas wrongful death claims and fatal pedestrian accidents have the potential for large jury awards due to the unique emotional character of these cases, as well as all other losses loved ones tragically suffer.

Insurance companies have the duty to protect the drivers they insure who might have caused or only partially caused, the death of your loved one. This places pressure on them to try and get cases settled, even if the person they insure played only a small part in causing the accident.

For instance, even if the pedestrian was crossing a dark road, not at a marked crosswalk, it still is possible to reach a settlement. Of course, every case is different. Many times our attorneys must work with accident reconstruction and other experts to prove the driver hitting the pedestrian was responsible. Such factors as speed, alcohol, drugs, and driver distraction or impatience are commonly involved. The unique facts of each case will determine if it can be successfully pursued.

You need to deal with a lawyer who has successfully handled difficult cases and has experience working with families to get the result they believe is best for them. If you have questions about the loss of your loved one, don’t hesitate to contact our Law Office for a free consultation.

How are Liability and Compensation Determined?

What does comparative negligence mean?2021-02-22T18:36:37+00:00

Texas s a “comparative negligence” state, which simply means the conduct of each party to an accident must be looked at to determine if they contributed to the accident. This means deciding who was “at fault” is often not simply an “either/or” proposition. It is possible a driver may be found at fault, a pedestrian could be at fault, or both the pedestrian and the driver acted in such a way they contributed to the cause of the accident. No one should assume a case may not be brought on behalf of the pedestrian, even if they were found to be “at fault” by those investigating the accident. Nor should it be assumed no case may be brought if law enforcement decided not to file charges against the driver involved in a pedestrian accident. These cases should be examined by a knowledgeable, experienced pedestrian injury lawyer.

 

What are common factors involved in pedestrian accidents:2021-02-22T18:34:16+00:00

The majority of pedestrian deaths occur in urban areas and involve pedestrians crossing outside of crosswalks away from intersections. A study showed that many of these accidents were affected by alcohol used by the driver or the pedestrian or sometimes both.

 

What is an unmarked crosswalk?2021-02-22T18:33:18+00:00

Most intersections have unmarked crosswalks. They exist when two intersecting roads having sidewalks or a walking path intersect. The unmarked crosswalk would be the extension of the sidewalk or walking path if extended across the adjacent road.

 

When is a driver required to stop or yield to a pedestrian?2021-02-22T18:32:37+00:00

Drivers are required to stop for a pedestrian who is in a crosswalk marked with signals or signage.

Drivers must yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk that has no signs or signals or in an unmarked crosswalk.

Where traffic signals are present, pedestrians should not cross the road at any place other than a crosswalk.

Drivers cannot pass or go around a vehicle stopped at a marked or unmarked crosswalk. A driver making a right turn on red must yield to pedestrians crossing the intersecting road or proceeding as directed by a traffic device.

 

What are the duties of pedestrians?2021-02-22T18:31:56+00:00

If a pedestrian is walking along a road where sidewalks are provided, they should not, under normal circumstances, walk on the paved part of the road designed for vehicle traffic. If the pedestrian finds themselves on a road where a sidewalk is not provided, he or she should walk facing oncoming traffic using the shoulder to the left of that traffic. (Note: bicyclists are required to travel on the right in the direction of the traffic). No one on roller skates or riding on any other device, such as a scooter or toy vehicle, should go on the paved part of the road except while crossing the street in a crosswalk. In doing so, they are subject to the same rights as a pedestrian, but also with the same responsibilities.

 

Who is a pedestrian?2021-02-22T18:31:12+00:00

Clearly, a pedestrian includes anyone who is walking. But the definition also includes someone who may be in a wheelchair, on skates, or even on a skateboard. When a bicycle rider is on a sidewalk or within a crosswalk, they are also considered a pedestrian.
