Truckaccidents-300x132Guest and Gray Law Firm is made up of locally grown attorneys who love their communities. Two of our lawyers grew up around Rockwall and four grew up in Kaufman and Rockwall counties. We are the largest local law firm with 9 attorneys who are dedicated to serving our fellow Rockwallians who have been severely injured or killed in truck and other commercial vehicle accidents.

Truck accident cases are particularly complex but only because the insurance company for the trucking company makes it that way. When you or a loved one is severely injured, or killed, in an accident, it should not be as hard as it is to make the insurance company or the trucking company pay for the damages that their driver inflicted on you and your family. The sad part is that most of the time it is like pulling teeth.

CatastrophicInjuryPicGuest and Gray is a full service law firm, specializing in manner different areas of law. One of our core practice areas is personal injury and wrongful death. If you or a loved one is involved in an auto, truck or motorcycle accident, you are going to have to deal with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. If you do not hire an attorney, you will be going into a situation where the other party is a multi-billion dollar insurance company who specializes in negotiating these types of claims.

So let me ask you this question: In any other type of situation, would you enter into negotiations with a multi-billion dollar company without hiring someone to represent you?

My hope is that the answer would be a no. Don’t be the fool that the insurance company thinks you are.

Guest and Gray is the firm to turn to if you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle. Our firm is based in the Dallas area with offices in Forney and Rockwall to meet the needs of our injured clients. Guest and Gray is a firm with small town values with big-city experience. Our personal injuries attorney’s have won millions for our injured clients and their families.

18-wheeler accidents are a different kind of animal than a standard motor vehicle accident. They are more fact specific and the at-fault party’s insurance company will look for more ways to refuse to pay. The number one tactic is become best friends with the claimant or portray to the grieving family that they truly care, and then send them a low-ball offer in an attempt to get them to settle before they meet with an attorney and find out the real value of the claim. Do not fall for this age old trick! Before you accept any settlement from the insurance company or the at-fault party, you need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about what is truly in your best interest.

MotorcycleAccidentsMotorcycle accidents happen in a blink of an eye. The biker is often left with very little time to maneuver to safety, causing them to lay the bike down or simply take the hit straight on. As a result, the injuries that motorcycle riders and passengers incur are regularly more severe than that of those in the vehicle that hit them.

Injuries mean hospital stays, lost wages, long recovery, hospital bills. Big ones. In a typical motorcycle accident here in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas, the amount of medical bills can exceed $100,000 in just the first few days of treatment. We have had countless cases where injured bikers have been in the hospital for weeks, and even months, at a time.

EasttexasEminent Domain and Condemnation is the process by which the city, county, state, or private utility or other statutorily granted entity, may come in and force you to sell all or part of your property to them under the guise of a public need. For the purposes of this article, the party claiming a public need will be called a “state actor”.

Although it is a fairly complicated process, the state actor will institute negotiations with the property owner in an attempt to purchase the property outright without actually entering into the “eminent domain” process.

Under Texas law, there are three elements required to show for eminent domain:  (1) The actor must be the state or a private entity authorized to condemn; (2) the property must be taken for public use; and (3) the landowner must receive adequate compensation for the condemned property.
