Preston Hollow is home to mansions, expansive estates, and some of the highest priced homes within the Dallas city limits, although many of its streets are lined with modest, ranch-style homes. The neighborhood is close to top private schools and a large variety of shops at Preston-Royal, Preston Center, and North Park Center.
Locals have easy access to the Northwest Highway and the Dallas North Tollway to reach the rest of the city. Many complain that traffic on the Northwest Highway is becoming increasingly slower and moves at a speed comparable to a parking lot. When traffic is heavily congested, accidents are bound to happen. Negligent drivers who are texting, tailgating, or driving aggressively or impaired can cause serious injuries to other motorists. Injured parties can hold at-fault drivers accountable through personal injury claims.

- Lost wages or earnings

Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed through the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Surviving family members of the deceased have a legal right to seek justice for their loved one and compensation for their family in a Preston Hollow wrongful death claim. The only persons entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas are the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased. If none of these individuals have brought a legal action within three calendar months after the death, the executor or administrator of the deceased can bring a wrongful death action, unless requested not to by all the above surviving family members.
A party that is liable is responsible or answerable in law. Most personal injury claims are based on negligence, which is the failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. For example, a driver who changes lanes without first signaling and checking blind spots may be held liable for a resulting accident and injuries.
Our Preston Hollow personal injury attorneys can investigate your accident to determine fault and liability and gather evidence to support your claim.
