For over two decades, severely injured families in Denton have called Marc after their worst tragedies. If you reach out now for the free call, together we'll size up your options, recommend what we see as the most promising path forward, and then follow your marching orders as we try to secure the best possible measure of justice for you.
Insurance companies are not on your side. The less money they hand you, the more money they make. If an adjuster betrays your trust, if they shortchange you, if they rub salt in your wounds, they don't get reprimanded. They get rewarded.
That is the opposite with us. The more money we secure for you, the more there is for you and us. We only get paid a percentage of what we recover for you, so even if our only motive was profit (you'll see that it isn't), we'd want to see you recover as much as possible. We pride ourselves on treating our clients like family, and earning their respect – which translates to great reviews. The better we treat you, the kinder the things you say about us.
No matter what the commercials say, and no matter how endearing the adjuster on the phone may appear, it is their job to shortchange you. I've never met an adjuster or insurance defense lawyer who wears a white apron and a name tag. There is no such device as a "name your price tool." Their real tools are weapons: databases, delay tactics, lies, and confusion.
Real injuries are nothing to be made light of. Real injuries are a tragedy. And they deserve real justice.
I want to be on your team. I am Marc Lenahan, and I've been called to the sides of families just like yours for decades. Call now, and ask for me.
At the Lenahan Law Firm, our formula is simple: a special team of attorneys, who work together on a select handful of cases for severely injured clients we believe in, whether in Texas, North Dakota, or anywhere in the United States. We believe that this narrow focus means a better chance at justice, better results, and happier clients. We believe that severe injury cases deserve premier care. Call now, and ask for Marc.

Fighting for Maximum Compensation Is What We Do
Wondering if you might benefit from hiring an attorney? Consider the case listed above where the total recovery was $6,504,961 with $2,738,046 in fees and expenses. First, the family was told that $50,000 was "all there is." Then we were told there was $1,000,000, but that it didn't apply and that they’d never pay. A year later, another $5,000,000 policy was discovered. If the family had taken the original $50,000 when they were told, “That’s all there is,” they would have received no real measure of justice. But because the family called us, even though the insurance company told them there was no reason to call an attorney, we secured real justice and exposed a scheme that was killing innocents.
Because our firm was able to secure such a large recovery, we were able to use the family's tragedy to save others from being killed in the same way. Knowing that their case was used to help others brings the family even more peace than knowing that their result was one of the largest in the State.
Severe Injury Attorneys
We believe that lawyers do a better job for their clients when they are focused. We focus on three things at the Lenahan Law Firm:
So what do we mean by "severe" injuries?
The quick answer is that if you or a loved one required emergency surgery at Texas Health Presbyterian, suffered a broken bone, or anything worse—wrongful death, burns, paralysis, brain injury, etc.—we consider that to be a severe injury. And never, never, never evaluate whether or not you need an attorney based on how much money or insurance you “think” there is, or how much an insurance company claims there is. If an insurance agent tells you, “You’ll end up with less if you hire an attorney,” there is no reason to believe them. It is impossible to know what’s true and what’s not until you’ve caught as many insurance companies and defendants in lies as we have.
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. There are some exceptions to this two-year rule, including if the injury victim was a minor at the time of injury. In this case, they have two years from the date of their 18th birthday to file a claim. Likewise, if an individual is found legally mentally incapable at the time of injury, they have two years from the date of mental recovery to file a claim. Last, if the defendant leaves the state after the accident and before the case can be filed, their absence is usually not counted in the two-year time limit.
There are three main types of damages, or compensation, that injury victims in Denton can pursue after sustaining an injury: economic, non-economic, and punitive. Economic damages, also called special damages, compensate for financial losses associated with suffering an injury such as medical expenses, any future medical expense, and the inability to work. Non-economic damages, as the name suggests, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. Given the fact that non-economic damages are not easily quantifiable, they are also called general damages. Punitive damages, the last type of compensation available, differs from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party as opposed to compensate the injured party for a loss. As such, punitive damages are not often awarded and are usually reserved for cases where the defendant knew their actions would cause harm but did them anyway.

The Difference of Hiring
the Lenahan Law Firm
You've seen enough suffering and injustice. You're ready to choose your teammates to fight with you to change that.
But we've learned that most people who are looking for a severe injury law firm have no idea how extraordinarily vast the differences between law firms can be. The problem with this is that is that a prospective client with an important injury case will find a never-ending list of lawyers wanting to serve. That list will include all kinds: criminal lawyers, divorce lawyers, lawyers who do a little bit of everything, and billboard injury firms with massive marketing programs that force each lawyer in their firm to handle 200, 300, 600 or more cases. Certainly not all, but far too many personal injury lawyers have well over 100 clients per attorney. Yes, there are numerous Dallas injury law firms with over 600 clients per attorney.
First, we accept the representation of ONLY the severely injured and those who have lost a loved one to wrongful death. Helping those who have suffered through a catastrophic event that caused a loved one's wrongful death, a brain injury, paralysis, emergency surgery, and other types of severe injuries, is all we do.
Second, we only represent a select number of clients at any one time. We believe that representing clients with such life-changing injuries requires and deserves personal attention. We understand that each case is unique, and we never know what any one client's case will ask of us. Our cases frequently require battling a courtroom full of insurance lawyers, and we focus on every fight.
Third, because each of our cases requires that we take the client's story into our hearts, we accept the representation of only clients we believe in.
