With that being said, one of the purest forms of bliss deriving from technological advancements has to be enabling independence as an individual gets older.Read More
If you were to explain just how dangerous texting and driving is to a teenager, what would you say? One solution would be to ask whether they would drive the length of a football field at 55mph blindfolded. It’s an accurate analogy, considering that the average time a driver takes their eyes off the road to use their smartphone is 4.6 seconds.Read More

The amount of time depends upon one’s case, the injuries sustained, and whether the case requires litigation. Sometimes it can be weeks, and sometimes it can be months or even years.
In some cases, the adverse party’s insurance company may offer a quick settlement just days after their insured caused your car accident. You can bet your best interests are not their primary concern, only minimizing your claim as soon as possible.
Along those lines, anyone promising a fast settlement should be suspicious to you, as they are likely more concerned with their interests and not yours or your family’s best interests. The DFW auto accident attorneys and dedicated staff at Reyes Browne Reilley have hundreds of combined years of experience ensuring our clients receive the maximum recovery in the shortest time possible.
In Texas, the laws of the road can make determining fault very tricky. It can be even more troubling when the adverse party’s insurance company is working against you to prove you were at-fault and deny liability on behalf of their client. As one of the longstanding motor vehicle wreck law firms in Dallas, we have seen this situation happen countless times.Read More
As February is fully underway and love is in the air, our Reyes Browne Reilley staff want to remind everyone to be careful on the roads around this special holiday. This year, Americans are projected to spend 32% more on Valentine’s Day than the record-setting year we had last year. We can attribute a substantial part of the Valentine’s Day spending forecast in 2020 to alcohol consumption, especially with Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday.Read More
There’s no law requiring you to ride to the hospital in an ambulance after you have been a car wreck. If you feel your injuries require immediate attention, we would strongly encourage you to go the hospital emergency room, and to take the ambulance if necessary.
Most people that do not practice law on a daily basis are unfamiliar with the phrase “statute of limitations.” However, it is quite simple to explain. The statute of limitations refers to a ticking clock from the moment an incident occurs, until a set deadline that revokes the right to file a lawsuit on behalf of that incident. Statute of limitations deadlines can vary based upon what type of incident the lawsuit pertains to.
In Texas, there is a statute of limitations for car accident injury claims. Typically, the statute of limitations for these types of incidents is two years from the date of the accident. It is the same for anyone even if they were driving, riding in a car, riding a motorcycle, a bicycle, a scooter, or even simply being a pedestrian on the side of the street. This is the exact same deadline time frame if you were to file a lawsuit for vehicle damage as well.
There are some exceptions that come into play when it comes to a car accident’s statute of limitations. For instance, if an individual died as a result of a car accident, the statute of limitations for their family members or other representatives to file a lawsuit for wrongful death resumes the day of the involved individual’s death.
For example, someone is in an accident in December. This person is not at fault but is in critical condition and placed on life support for months. This individual then passes away in February. The statute of limitations clock would have paused from the date of the accident until the date of the individual’s death. The family of the deceased can then file a lawsuit against the at-fault party’s insurance company up until two years from the date of the individual’s death. The pause only allows for up to a year of pause time between the date of the accident and the date of death in this scenario.
