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.

EasttexasVan Zandt County is still mostly rural, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty. The people are great and the cities and towns bring back memories of what Texas was like growing up. But even Van Zandt County cannot escape the growth in nearby Dallas, Kaufman and Rockwall counties. Many people who moved to Kaufman county and Rockwall county to escape the hustle and bustle of city life are now being forced to move further east into East Texas, and the first stop on the way is Van Zandt county. Canton and surrounding areas are seeing large numbers of growth in residential growth, and with First Monday drawing even bigger crowds, the love and allure of East Texas is growing.

As a lawyer, what I see coming for Van Zandt county is increased traffic and traffic accidents and an uptick in civil litigation. Residential growth always leads to commercial growth. Both of those lead to civil litigation, such as real estate and breach of contract litigation. When most people think of hiring a lawyer, their first thought is “I need a Dallas lawyer!”

However, that is simply not the case. Van Zandt county has numerous attorneys who are capable handling any of your civil litigation needs. Guest and Gray, P.C. is a law firm based out of Kaufman and Rockwall counties that seeks to represent people in civil litigation matters all across East Texas, including Van Zandt, Henderson, Smith and other surrounding counties. We love our East Texas neighbors. Our firm is the largest and highest rated firm in Kaufman and Rockwall counties, and no case is too big. We have the staff and resources to fight whatever legal battle you have.

LEFORS, Texas (AP) — Three people are dead and two critically injured after one SUV crashed into another at an intersection in rural West Texas.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said the crash occurred Saturday afternoon near Lefors, about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northeast of Amarillo. DPS says the 29-year-old driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe was unable to avoid a Chevy Equinox that did not yield the right of way at a stop sign and entered the intersection in front of the Tahoe.

Authorities identified the three killed as 72-year-old Wesley Lewis of Elk City, Oklahoma, and 79-year-old Mildred Garza and 79-year-old Alverto Garza, both of Leedey, Oklahoma.

guestandgray-300x300At Guest and Gray, we understand that customer service and client satisfaction is key to our success. Keeping clients happy is business 101. However, it is easier to do that when you are genuinely happy to provide the service. It is easier when you have a top notch team in place that has been working together for years. It is easier when you care about the service you are providing. When people come to my office, they are hurting. They are worried about their medical bills as well as their light bills and putting food on the table for their family. Here at Guest and Gray, we do not lose sight of that fact. We focus our personal injury practice locally in the Rockwall, Kaufman and Dallas county areas. Why? because we care about this community and the people in it. We care because we live here. You are our neighbors. What a cool job to get to fight for your neighbors when someone has negligently harmed them!

It is a job with a lot of responsibility. Many local Rockwall, Terrell, Forney and other local residents come see me every week and tell me the story of how they have been injured and how that has affected them and their families. Accidents don’t just hurt the person, it hurts their families too. It effects everything they do. Spouses and parents have to spend additional time caring for an injured family member. Watch them receive treatments in the hospital. The worst is when a loved one has been lost due to an accident. That is truly a life-changing event for that family.

It is our goal to show this community the other side of personal injury attorneys. Not the side you see on TV that brags about cherry-picked cases where the clients have received large sums of money. Yeah, we have those but you are not just a dollar sign to us, and we hope we are not that for you either. The law only provides so much remedy to an injured party and the end result of each case is a cash-payout, but our goal is to make sure that you are brought back to where you were or as close to that as possible. We look at every avenue of recovery. Every angle.

Litigation-imagesSounds pretty cool, right? No evidence and Summary Judgment together is a pretty awesome phrase. Say that at dinner parties and ears will perk. But make sure you know what it means before you start throwing that phrase out there. If you want to know what it means or how to get one, you’re in luck. I have the information you seek.

The standard for a no-evidence summary judgment in Texas is found under Rule 166(a)(i) of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure and states as follows:

(i) No-Evidence Motion. After adequate time for discovery, a party without presenting summary judgment evidence may move for summary judgment on the ground that there is no evidence of one or more essential elements of a claim or defense on which an adverse party would have the burden of proof at trial. The motion must state the elements as to which there is no evidence. The court must grant the motion unless the respondent produces summary judgment evidence raising a genuine issue of material fact.
