Trucking Accidents: What You Need to Know

OHare - What You Should Know About Trucking Accidents

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

Each year, more than 450,000 trucking accidents occur on U.S. roadways, nearly 5,000 motorists are killed in accidents involving large trucks and an estimated 140,000 are injured. In an accident involving a passenger vehicle and a semi or commercial truck, 74 percent of those killed are passengers in the car.

Commercial trucks are significantly larger than passenger vehicles, posing a serious risk to the drivers and passengers of other vehicles in the event of an accident. While not all car accidents are unavoidable, many are. As a driver, there are several steps you can take to protect yourself and your passengers from an accident that could lead to serious injury or death. Keep yourself and your family safe by following these safe driving guidelines:

Treat trucks differently than other cars. Trucks can weigh as much as 30 times more than a passenger car. Due to their size, it is nearly impossible for semi trucks to come to a sudden stop. For example, a semi truck that is moving at 55 miles per hour can take the length of a football field to come to a complete stop. Avoid cutting off a semi in traffic or putting yourself in a situation where you may have to suddenly stop in front of a semi. The size of an 18-wheeler also makes it difficult for the truck driver to change lanes.

Stay visible. Driving next to a semi or directly behind one can make it very difficult for the truck driver to see you. Do not follow too closely or stay directly next to a semi truck. A general rule is that if you cannot see the truck’s side mirrors, the driver cannot see you.

Do not stop on the side of the road. If you have to stop your vehicle for some reason, avoid stopping on the shoulder of the road. Truck drivers may not see you stopped until it is too late. If you must stop, try to pull completely off of the road, either into the grass or on a side road. If you do stop on the side of the road, do not stay in your car. Get out and move away from traffic.

If you are involved in a trucking accident and the truck driver is found to be at fault, you may be entitled to receive compensation for bodily injury or property damage. Damages may include:

• Medical expenses including ambulance fees, hospital and doctor visits, in-home care services, physical therapy, etc.
• Pain and suffering including mental and physical distress.
• Lost wages to cover pay for any lost work due to the accident and follow-up medical appointments.
• Lost earning capacity in the event you are unable to continue working due to impairments from the injuries.
• Loss of companionship, covering the loss of affection or relations in a marriage or the loss of a loved one.
• Special damages covering general monetary losses after an accident.

If you have been involved in a traffic accident with a commercial truck, contact the experienced legal team at The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare. We will help you receive all due compensation for your injury or loss.

Tim O’Hare Named One of Texas’ Best Lawyers by D Magazine and Texas Super Lawyers

OHare - D Magazine and Super Lawyers

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

D Magazine and Texas Super Lawyers have once again recognized Dallas Personal Injury Attorney, Tim O’Hare as one of the region’s best lawyers. Tim is one of an elite group of lawyers to receive both recognitions.

“It is our daily goal to provide the best service to our clients, both those who have been injured and those who have lost loved ones due to negligence,” said O’Hare. “It is an honor to be recognized for our work by D Magazine and Texas Super Lawyers.”

D Magzine Best Lawyers

Selections for the D Magazine list are made by a group of lawyers and editors who review peer nominations submitted for the recognition. The D Magazine list of top lawyers in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex will appear in the May issue.

In years past, less than 25 injury lawyers (of the more than 1,000 in the Metroplex) make the list. In all, there are just over 500 names on the D Magazine list—just about two percent of approximately 25,000 attorneys in the Metroplex.

Texas Super Lawyers

The national Super Lawyers rating is a distinction given to only the top five percent of attorneys in the state. The full list will be published in Super Lawyers Magazine later this year.

Lawyers are selected on an annual, state-by-state basis based on this patented, multiphase selection process, which includes peer nominations, evaluations and third-party research.

These recognitions add to a long list of awards and recognitions for the Law Offices of Tim O’Hare including:

  • A/V Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest ranking available. (Click here to view profile on martindale.com.)
  • com 10 of 10 rating based on Tim’s his ethical standing with the Bar Association and endorsements by both peers and clients. (Click here to view profile on Avvo.com.)
  • Top Transportation Lawyers in the country by The American Lawyer Magazine.
  • Top Personal Injury Lawyers in the nation by The National Law Journal.
  • Named one of Texas’ Legal Leaders.
  • A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

“Injury law is often looked at negatively due to the questionable ethics of a few attorneys in this area of law. It is refreshing to know that our efforts at maintaining our integrity while representing clients in North Texas have been recognized again this year,” said O’Hare.

If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury as the result of a car wreck or work accident, or if you need someone to handle your will, trust, probate matters, bankruptcy, child custody or child support issues, business formations or another legal matter, contact The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare for a free consultation with one of our attorneys.

If You Have Children, You Need a Will. Here’s Why

Tim OHare - Why Every Parent Needs a Will

by J. Branden Snyder

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

At least half of Americans don’t have a will. Are you one of them? Dying without a will means the state will decide who gets what of your assets, who is in charge of your estate, and more importantly, who is responsible for your children.

Nobody wants to talk about death and dying, but preparing your will now can save your loved ones stress and additional heartache should something happen to you.

In the event that something happens to you, your children should be cared for by individuals you choose. Don’t let the state determine where your children will live. In addition, dying without a will means your assets could go to places you had no intention of them going.

There are many reasons every adult should have a will, children or no children. Here are some of the most important reasons you need a will:

A will allows you to determine who your beneficiaries will be. If you die without a will, the State of Texas will determine the division of your property and who your beneficiaries will be. If you have children, or children from a previous marriage, the division of your assets can be a complicated process. By executing your will, you will be able to clearly identify your beneficiaries and how you want your property to be divided.

A will allows you to designate a guardian for your children. In the event that you pass away while your children are minors, your will can designate who will care for your children after your passing. If you die without a will, the court will appoint a person to serve as guardian for any minor children.

In your will, you can nominate an executor for your estate. In your will, you can also designate who should serve as executor of your estate. This is the person who will be responsible for dividing your assets and property according to your wishes.

By preparing your will, you will make things as simple as possible for your surviving family. This may be the most important reason everyone needs a will. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is hard enough, but that loss can be compounded by the stress of administering the deceased’s estate. Drawing up a proper will, and letting your spouse, children and family members know what your wishes are will help ease the added burden they would otherwise experience upon your death.

To prepare your will, you should work with an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process. Your attorney will explain the legal terms and ensure that your will is drafted properly so there are no questions in the event of your death. Your attorney can also help review your financial assets and double check who can receive what from your retirement accounts.

Do you need to prepare your will or update an existing will? Contact the experienced legal team at The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare to speak with a reputable attorney who can help you draw up your will.

Reflections on the Last 15 Years

OHare - Reflections

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

It’s been 15 years since we first opened our doors at The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare. Over the years, we’ve earned numerous awards and accolades for our work in injury law, but those awards could never measure up to the experiences I’ve shared with my clients and my staff.

As I look back on the last 15 years, here are some reflections I’d like to share with you.

I’ve learned a lot in the last 15 years, but most importantly, I’ve learned to trust God first and lean not on my own understanding. I have also learned not to sweat the small stuff and to always strive to improve and honestly self-evaluate. It’s also helpful for me to remember that while it may be the zillionth time I’ve handled a case, for each individual client, it is likely the first and last time they will ever be in this position. For that reason, it is so important to take care of people and always do the right thing, even when it is costly.

I sincerely enjoy the opportunity to help people through a difficult period in their lives. Each client I’ve worked with through the years stands out in my memory for one reason or another, but those with whom I have walked through tragedy stick most in my memory. I once had the difficult task of helping a family who lost a child due to medical negligence. This was the toughest thing I’ve ever dealt with or been a part of and something I will never forget. Another case that impacted me tremendously was where a young woman with three young children lost her husband and the father of her children suddenly due to a negligent construction company truck driver. I spent nearly two years walking through that devastation with them.

With 15 years under my belt, the one piece of advice I’d give my younger self is to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate every moment. Count your blessings. Life as a husband, father, attorney and active member of my community is often very hectic, but it is so important to take a step back and soak it all in every now and then. It gives you a new perspective.

These 15 years would not be complete without my wife and three children. They are my biggest inspiration and the reason I get up every day and do what I do. I love spending time with my family and look forward to watching my children grow up and become Godly, productive teenagers and adults.

Fifteen years may seem like a long time, but we are just getting started! Over the coming years, we look forward to continuing to be the go-to law firm in North Texas for injury victims and families who have lost loved ones seeking honest, ethical, tenacious representation. We plan to continue to expand our services to meet our ever-growing client base’s needs, and to serve our community through giving back, pro bono work and charitable giving.

Thank you for being a part of our first 15 years. We look forward to many more years!

NCAA Final Four This Weekend! Don’t Be a Victim of Drunk Driving

Tim OHare - Final Four Drunk Driving

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

Whether your team is still in the hunt for the NCAA Championship, or you’re just holding out hopes to win your workplace bracket, don’t let the excitement of the Final Four interfere with your decision making.

With major sporting events, we often see an uptick in drunk driving. Although the games aren’t being played in Dallas-Ft. Worth, there will be plenty of watch parties taking place this weekend. Keep yourself and others safe with these tips:

Choose a designated driver. If you’re going to a watch party and you plan to consume alcohol, plan ahead and select a designated driver or alternative form of transportation. Before you get to the party, know exactly how you will get home. If you’re hosting a party and serving alcohol, be sure to provide plenty of nonalcoholic drink options for the designated drivers.

Avoid late night driving. Even if it means leaving the watch party or pre or post game celebration early, if you get home safely, it’s worth it. Leaving the game or watch party early will help you avoid the rush of drivers as soon as the game ends.

Drive in the right lane. Sticking to the right lane can save your life from drunk drivers, and wrong-way drivers alike. Often times drunk drivers drift out of their lane or into oncoming traffic. The further you are to the right of the road, the better your chances of avoiding being sideswiped or hit head-on by a drunk driver.

Watch for drunk drivers on the road and notify law enforcement. If you notice another car weaving in and out of lanes, driving on areas not designated as roadways, making wide turns or abrupt changes in speed or driving into opposing traffic, notify law enforcement immediately.

Don’t let the fear of becoming a victim of drunk driving keep enjoying the fun of Final Four weekend. Just be sure to plan ahead and make smart choices to keep yourself and others safe.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed as a result of drunk driving, contact The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare for a free consultation with a Dallas – Ft. Worth personal injury attorney.

Keeping Workers Safe on Texas Roads

OHare - Work Zone Safety

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

At any given time, there are as many as 1,000 active work zones in Texas; dozens of these are on highways in Dallas-Ft. Worth alone. Every day thousands of construction workers put their lives in the hands of Texas drivers.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, during the past five years in work zone crashes, more than 4,400 people were killed (85 percent of those were the driver or passenger of a vehicle) and more than 200,000 people were injured. In Texas, there are approximately 15,000 crashes and more than 100 people killed in highway construction and maintenance zones every year. The leading causes of work zone accidents in Texas are excessive speed, distracted driving and drunk driving.

Improving Texas roadways is a never-ending project, and as frustrating as that fact might be for drivers, it is important that everyone on the road drive through construction zones with extreme caution. Remember these tips to help avoid an accident when driving through a work zone:

Stay alert and minimize distractions. Keep your full attention on the roadway. Avoid changing the radio station, using your phone, eating or other distractions that can remove your concentration from the road.

Pay attention to the road. “Listen” to signs posted in the area. Watch brake lights on vehicles ahead of you and pay attention to traffic around you, always being prepared to react.

Merge into the proper lane. Don’t wait until the last minute to merge before you reach a lane closure. As soon as you see the first sign of a lane closure ahead, begin making your way over into the proper lane. Keep in mind that traffic patters can change daily.

Slow down and obey the posted speed limit. Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes. Workers may be present just feet away from where cars pass. Remember, traffic fines double in work zones.

Follow instructions from flaggers. When flaggers are present on the road, paying full attention to their instructions is imperative to keeping you and others on the road safe

Don’t tailgate. Always keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Expect the unexpected. Workers, work vehicles or equipment may enter your lane without warning. Other vehicles may slow, stop or change lanes unexpectedly.

Be patient. Delays from highway construction can be frustrating, but it only takes a few extra minutes to slow down for a work zone.

Plan ahead. Leave a few minutes early when traveling through a work zone in order to reach your destination on time.

If you have been injured in a work zone car crash, or if you have lost a family member due to an accident in a construction zone, contact The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare for a free consultation with a Dallas – Ft. Worth personal injury attorney.

Why Voting Matters

why voting matters

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, TwitterLinkedIn & Google+.

As we enter the election season, it is important to be reminded just how much voting matters.

The government of the United States of America is a government that was established of the people, by the people and for the people. But to truly have our voices heard, more people need to vote instead of staying home and letting others decide who leads our country, our state, and our county.  It is important to vote no matter how “big” or “small” the election seems.

In municipal and school board elections, it isn’t uncommon to see a turnout of only four to six percent of the electorate. That means that four to six percent of your local population is responsible for selecting leadership who will determine the decisions and direction for your local community. Who votes has a powerful impact on public policy.

It seems that today, perhaps more than ever before in recent history, citizens are concerned about our government — on both a local and national level. Will 2016 be the year of change, when citizens turn their concerns and complaints into action?

If you think your vote doesn’t matter, think again. In 1800, Thomas Jefferson was elected President by a single vote in the House of Representatives after a tie in the electoral college. In 1845, the U.S. Senate passed the convention annexing Texas by two votes. In 2000, George W. Bush won the state of Florida by just 537 votes out of nearly six million voters in the state.

Every vote matters.

Take time to educate yourself on elections. Know where the candidates stand on issues that matter to you and your community. A concerned and informed electorate is a better one.

Voting is a quick process — at most you may give a few hours of your day to have your voice heard. Are those few hours worth the years of disappointment in the government if you choose not to vote? Before you complain about our government again, make the commitment to vote in the next election. If you choose not to vote, you should have no right to complain.

Our nation, our state and our way of life depend on the power of the people. Voting is the means given to you to have your voice heard.

Finding CHRIST in Christmas

“Look for Christ and you will find Him. And with Him, everything else.” – C.S. Lewis

This year it seems our culture has gone further than ever before in its attempts to take Christ out of Christmas.

From replacing “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays,” to removing Nativity displays from public property, society is certainly more concerned with being politically correct than recognizing the One True Reason for this season.

It’s easy to watch the news and wonder what’s gone wrong with our world, but the answer is so simple. We’ve neglected the baby in the manger, and have replaced him with consumerism and man-made idols.

If you’re seeking peace, love, joy, or hope this Christmas, you won’t find those wrapped under your tree. To find true joy, hope, and peace, you must first find Christ. As C.S. Lewis put it, “Look for Christ and you will find Him. And with Him, everything else.”

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart,” the Scriptures tell us in Jeremiah 29:13.

When we take time to remember, reflect upon, and honor the One God sent to bring us love, peace, joy, and hope, we will find them in the most unexpected way. We will find love, peace, joy, and hope in the baby in a manger — God’s only Son who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died as a sacrifice for the sin of all men.

Christ defeated death, and on the 3rd day, he was alive again. It is through belief in Christ’s sacrifice for our sins, his death, burial and resurrection that we can know true love, joy, and peace, and have hope of eternal life in heaven when our time on earth is over.

This gift — Jesus — is a free gift; one you have the choice to accept or reject. If you choose to accept this gift, and believe in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Christ to cover the gap between you and a perfect, holy God, you can have eternal life

All you need is faith. As the Scriptures say, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Seek Christ this holiday season and with Him you will find everything else.

From our family to yours, Merry CHRISTmas!

3 Tips to Stay Safe During Holiday Travel

OHare - 3 Tips to Stay Safe During Holiday Travel

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

The holiday season is one of the most deadly times to be on the road. Christmas and New Year’s holidays are among the 10 most dangerous days to drive. Stress of the holiday season and busy roads can lead to more aggressive driving, according to a State Farm survey which found that 32 percent of drivers were more likely to show signs of aggression or road rage during holiday travel.

According to research from multiple sources, other dangerous days to be on the road include: Memorial Day weekend, the start of daylight savings time, Black Friday, NFL game day, Friday the 13th, July 4th, Thanksgiving, and St. Patrick’s Day.

After analyzing 10 years of crash data in Alabama, David Brown, a University of Alabama professor found that the six days around Christmas were especially deadly, with 27 percent more accidents occurring on those days than New Year’s Eve.

New Year’s Day almost always ranks in the top five deadliest days of the year, and in most cases, alcohol is a factor. According to data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), January 1 is the No. 1 day of the year with the highest percentage of deaths related to alcohol. Analysis by the National Safety Council of accidents occurring over the New Year’s holiday between 2007 and 2011 found that about 42 percent of all traffic fatalities were related to drunk driving.

Holiday parties often come served with a large dose of alcohol — the more a person drinks, the more impaired his or her decision-making will be. One wrong decision to drink and drive could be deadly for you, or someone else.

It is possible to enjoy the holidays without putting your life in danger; believe it or not, choosing not to drink doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on holiday fun.

3 Tips to Stay Safe During Holiday Travel

Don’t be a victim of drunk driving. Here are three tips to stay safe on the roads this holiday season:

Choose a designated driver. If you’re going to a holiday party and you plan to consume alcohol, plan ahead and select a designated driver or alternative form of transportation. Before you get to the party, know exactly how you will get home. If you’re hosting a party and serving alcohol, be sure to provide plenty of nonalcoholic drink options for the designated drivers.

Avoid late night driving. Nobody wants to be the party pooper who leaves just before the end ball drops on New Year’s Eve. But if it means getting home safely, it’s worth it. Leave the party early so you can avoid the late night rush of potentially dangerous drivers and start 2016 off in one piece.

Drive in the right lane. Sticking to the right lane can save your life from drunk drivers, and wrong-way drivers alike. Often times drunk drivers drift out of their lane or into oncoming traffic. The further you are to the right of the road, the better your chances of avoiding being sideswiped or hit head-on by a drunk driver.

Don’t let the fear of becoming a victim of drunk driving keep enjoying the festivities this holiday season. Just be sure to plan ahead and make smart choices to keep yourself and others safe.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed as a result of drunk driving, contact The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare for a free consultation with a Dallas and Ft. Worth personal injury attorney.

So Many Reasons to Give Thanks

by Tim O’Hare

Follow The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Google+.

Thanksgiving is once again upon us, and as I reflect on the past year, I am reminded just how many reasons I have to be grateful. I have been reflecting on the many blessings I have in my life, each of them, a reason to give thanks.

Here are just a few of the things for which I am grateful this year.

I am thankful for our Savior. Without CHRISTmas, we could not truly have Thanksgiving, so during this season, I find so much gratitude in the hope I have in Jesus Christ.

I am thankful for my loving wife and to have a happy home with my family where we share so much love.

I am thankful for three healthy little girls. Being a father is the most important job I will ever have, and I’m thankful the Lord entrusted these three souls to their mother and I.

I am thankful for my job and for all of our clients, past and present. I am blessed to have the opportunity to walk with clients through some of the most trying times of their lives. It is my honor to serve them and to be a small part of their journey.

I am thankful for our country and for Texas. Lest we not forget the freedoms we are afforded in this great nation, and may we always strive to protect those freedoms.

Thanksgiving is a season to reflect, but it’s important that gratitude remains a consistent attitude, all year long, not just during this season. Living a life of thanksgivings shifts my perspective from the things that may be going wrong in life to the many blessings I do have.

As Americans we are among the most blessed in the world. More important than that, however, I believe we should consistently remember the blessings bestowed on us by our Father in Heaven, the blessings of family, friends, faith and ultimately, the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ.

With that in mind, from the O’Hare family to yours, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
