What do our personal injury attorneys do?

A personal injury lawyer specializes in representing clients who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others. At Varghese Summersett, we handle a variety of cases, including car accidents, slip and falls, and catastrophic injuries. Our goal is to help you recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Experience in Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law is complex and varies by state. As a lawyer specializing in personal injury cases in Southlake, we have a deep understanding of Texas laws and regulations. We know how to navigate the legal system, gather evidence, and build a strong case on your behalf. We also know common tactics insurance adjusters and lawyers use to deny claims or lower the value of claims – and we know how to overcome these tactics.

Holding People and Individuals Responsible

Many of the clients we work with come to us – not because they need a financial settlement – but because they want to hold a person or a corporation responsible for their actions to affect change, and on occasion, to fight to have a law in Texas changed.

The stakes are high. Hire the best lawyers.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury claims. Our team can help navigate insurance claims, establish fault, and secure compensation for medical bills and property damage.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises. If you’ve been injured due to a slip and fall on someone else’s property, our team can help prove negligence and hold the property owner accountable.

Wrongful Death

When a life is tragically lost due to the negligence of another person, our goal is to do everything possible to prevent another similar death. The way to do this through our civil system is to file a lawsuit that will affect the change you hope to see and hold the business or person financially responsible for their actions.

Southlake Vehicle Accident Reporting and Statistics

Accident Reporting

If you have been involved in a vehicle accident in Southlake, particularly one that resulted in personal injury, you will want to file an accident report. Of course, if the police come to the scene, there will already be an accident report. There are, however, many reasons why officers may not come out to the scene. First, if the vehicles can safely be moved off the roadway and if emergency medical services are not needed, the police may not come out. In those cases, you will want to file your own accident report.

  • To file an accident or police report in Southlake, residents can contact the non-emergency dispatch number at (817) 743-4522 or visit the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Headquarters at 600 State Street, Southlake, TX 76092. More information can be found on the City of Southlake website.
  • You can fill out a crash report and turn it in at the police department.
  • Completed accident reports are available online through the TxDOT Crash Records Information System (CRIS) and can be accessed three to five business days after the incident. The cost to obtain an online report is $6.00. More details are available on the City of Southlake website.

Recent Accidents in Southlake

While Southlake is known for being safe, tragedy can strike anywhere. Just a few recent examples include:
