Most people do not anticipate being involved in a car, truck, or personal injury accident and so therefore, most people are not financially prepared to deal with the aftermath. From sky high medical expenses to missed work, the financial consequences caused by a car accident can be devastating. Fortunately, the U.S. court system allows accident victims to pursue compensation from the liable party via a legal cause of action. However, at an already financially difficult time in the average victim's life, it can be impossible for him or her to pay for an attorney. A contingency fee arrangement effectively resolves that problem.

What is a Contingency Fee?

A contingency fee arrangement is one in which a Dallas personal injury lawyer accepts a client's case without charging a retainer or hourly fee. Rather, the lawyer's fee is an agreed upon percentage of the final settlement or judgement that the lawyer wins for your case. Any expenses accrued during your case, such as the cost of an expert witness, is typically covered by the attorney from money he or she has won from another case and reimbursed via your earnings. If your lawyer is unable to obtain a settlement, you do not owe him or her anything.


Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for adult children to estrange themselves from their parents. Because estrangement is a relatively silent epidemic, there are no hard and fast numbers for how many families are estranged, but the vast number of resources available to parents and grandparents alike suggest that the number is far greater than many would assume. That said, if you are estranged from your child and his or her partner, know that you are not alone. Also know that while no law in the world can bring you and your child back together, there may be something you can do about reconnecting with your grandchildren.

Grandparent Visitation Rights

Before you get your hopes up, know that Texas courts will always rule in favor of what is in the best interests of the child. Oftentimes, this means siding with the parents. However, in many instances, being barred from seeing one's grandparents is detrimental to a child's emotional and even physical wellbeing. To prove that is the case with your grandchild, you must prove at least one of the following elements to be true:


One of the most contentious and emotionally charged aspects of most divorce cases is thechild custody determination proceedings. Most parents want full custody of their little ones, but because the courts feel that shared parenting is in most children's best interests, they often try to split custody evenly between both parties, or a 50/50 schedule. However, if the judge determines that one parent is more fit than the other, or that it would be in the children's best interest to stay at one parent's house more often, he or she may grant that parent more custody.

If you are in the midst of a child custody battle, there are a few things you can do to help your case, and many things you can do to sabotage it. At Clark Law Group, ourDallas custody attorneys strive to help our clients do everything in their power to obtain the maximum amount of custody possible.

When you choose your child's daycare, you do so with great care and deliberation. You read the reviews, perform a background check on the teachers, ask friends and family about their thoughts, and meet with school administrators multiple times. By the time your child's first day rolls around, you feel comfortable and confident that your child is in great hands. But then you learn the ugly truth the hard way. One or more of your child's caregivers are not who they said they were. They are child abusers.
