Joseph K. shares his Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our Dallas, TX staff of professional car accident lawyers while helping him recover damages after his car was in a car accident.

“Hello, my name’s Joseph K. I am a client here at Reyes Browne Reilley. I had an accident on December 16th of 2017. It totaled my car, but as soon as I called … I looked you guys up on the internet and found out that you guys got good reviews, so decided to bring my case here. Because I tried to do it on my own and the insurers were not really helpful with me, so I brought it to you professionals and they were really helpful in terms of negotiating with the at-fault driver’s insurance company and I was able to get a pretty large settlement and I’m happy with that. And if you have an accident make sure you come down to Reyes Browne Reilley for all your insurance negotiation needs.”

Prestige Limo Employee Faces 40 Criminal Counts After Tragic Crash Kills 20 - Reyes Browne ReilleyNauman Hussain, son of the Prestige Limousine Chauffer Service owner, has been indicted in connection to the upstate New York limo crash that took the lives of 20 people in October of 2018. Hussain is now facing 40 criminal counts, including 20 counts of second-degree manslaughter and 2o counts of negligent homicide.

The felony complaint states the Hussain hired the limo’s driver, Scott Lisinicchia, and was aware that he did not hold a CDL, or commercial driver’s license. State Police Superintendent George Beach told reporters that Hussain received “written violations” from State Police and the New York State Department of Transportation informing him that Lisinicchia “shouldn’t have been operating the type of vehicle involved in the crash”.

The criminal complaint states that the negligence also extended to the limousine’s safety, which was actually a modified Ford Excursion. According to the NTSB’s Preliminary Report, the original wheelbase of the Ford Excursion had been lengthened by 180 inches to increase the seating occupancy to 18 occupants. These after-market modifications most likely caused the mechanical and safety deficiencies of the vehicle, and lead to the vehicle being deemed unsafe. According to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the vehicle had been inspected by the New York State Department of Transportation a month prior to the crash and had failed. Although it had been ordered to be taken out of service, it remained in use by Hussain’s company, Prestige Limousine Chauffeur Service.

Terri H. shares her Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our Dallas, TX staff of professional car accident lawyers while helping her recover damages after being seriously injured in a rear-end car accident.

Hi, I’m Terri. I was leaving one day from work, and it had been raining. I was actually practicing the correct way to drive in the rain so that I could pass that along to my daughter, as a reminder. I had stopped behind some young man, about a car and a half, and had glanced down to change the speed on my phone. I was listening to an audiobook, at a red light. All of sudden there was just a huge explosion, back window, it blew out. I just had no clue what had happened. I noticed I was moving forward, so I put both feet on my brake and I could see those boys in front of me. I was getting closer and closer, and then all of a sudden it was over and still couldn’t figure out what had happened.

Scott K. shares his Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our Dallas, TX staff of professional car accident lawyers while helping him recover damages after being hit by a car while on his bicycle.

My name is Scott, and in April of 2015 I was involved in an accident while I was riding my bike in McKinney, Texas. I was hit by a lady who I think wasn’t paying attention, and she hit me from the side. Went to the hospital, was banged up, had a pinched nerve and things like that. And so the insurance company didn’t really want to deal with me, so that’s when I called Spencer and put him on the case so to speak. And it’s taken a while to get through, I think mainly because of the insurance company, but fortunately we got everything worked out, and got a settlement that I think was favorable to everybody involved. Maybe not the insurance company, but favorable to myself and Spencer.

Sara B. shares her Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our Dallas, TX staff of professional car accident lawyers while helping her recover damages after being injured in a rear-end car accident.

“It was maybe November of last year, I was in an accident right before Thanksgiving. A lady ran into the back of my car, she was not paying attention and we were in a lot of traffic. There wasn’t a lot of damage done to the vehicle, but there was some damage done to me personally. I did go through physical therapy and working with Reyes and Browne, what I was able to do is get through the therapy, they were able to get me into see someone really quickly. I was able to get the settlement, I mean, really fast in comparison to what I’ve heard for other people. I expected it to take a whole lot longer than what it has. But it’s actually been a really easy process, which is pretty shocking.
