Frenkel & Frenkel Top-Rated Personal Injury Law Firm in Dallas

Each member of the trial lawyer team at Frenkel & Frenkel has been listed in Best Lawyers for many years running. As talented litigators, the members of our legal team take on a range of challenging cases involving serious injury and have achieved extraordinary success throughout their years serving the Dallas and Fort Worth communities.

Product liability

Commercial products released on the market must perform correctly and be safe to use as directed. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some products used as directed by consumers or other parties have caused serious or fatal injuries. These injuries may result from manufacturing defects, design defects, or a failure to warn users of risks or hazards. 

After an injury from using a commercial product, a claim or lawsuit can be filed to seek compensation for the victim, called a product liability claim. These lawsuits may be filed against any type of manufacturer, including:

  • Automakers
  • Drug companies
  • Furniture manufacturers
  • Manufacturers of children’s toys, tools, and virtually any commercial product

When a severe injury or death occurs, the responsible parties may be named in a product liability lawsuit, whether the manufacturer, parts maker, assembler, installer, wholesaler, or seller.

Drug Litigation

Drugs and medications are FDA-approved and brought to market to treat all types of illnesses and conditions. In some cases, a drug released on the market is later found to have severe or fatal side effects and is subsequently withdrawn. However, this may only occur after many people have suffered serious complications.

The pharmaceutical firm that produced the drug often fights claims, assisted by teams of corporate defense lawyers. At Frenkel & Frenkel, our legal team is not intimidated and can help injured individuals seek justice in dangerous drug cases.

Medical malpractice

Many law firms in Dallas would never consider taking on a medical malpractice case—these are among the most difficult to litigate. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, worsened medical condition, illness, or loss of life after a medical professional failed to administer the accepted standard of care, you deserve justice and total compensation.

Medical malpractice claims and lawsuits may be due to the following:

  • A failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Other acts of negligence or error

Parties that may be held liable in medical malpractice lawsuits include the following:

  • Doctor
  • Dentist
  • Surgeon
  • Psychiatrist
  • Nurse
  • Hospital, clinic, or other medical facility

Birth injury

Nothing is more devastating than when a baby suffers an injury during birth. When a medical professional fails to act quickly when a baby is distressed, the child may suffer injuries due to lack of oxygen, physical damage, or both.

While not all birth injuries are caused by negligent medical care, in some cases, the doctor fails to deliver the accepted standard of care, and a lawsuit should be filed to pursue justice and financial compensation.

The types of actions that may indicate a breach (violation) of the standard of care include:

  • Improper use of forceps
  • Improper administration of anesthesia
  • Failing to respond correctly when the baby is in distress
  • Waiting too long to perform C-section surgery
  • Failing to recognize and act if the umbilical cord is wrapped around the child’s neck or the shoulder is stuck behind the mother’s pelvic bone

Nursing home abuse

It can be a difficult decision to place a relative in a nursing home. A nursing home can provide care that can’t be delivered by family members, particularly when an older adult has severe medical or cognitive issues. However, when a nursing home resident is neglected, abused, or harmed while in the care of a home, they can be severely harmed physically, emotionally, medically, or financially.

The types of nursing home abuse cases taken on by Frenkel & Frenkel include symptoms such as:

  • Bedsores
  • Fractures
  • Indications of sexual abuse
  • Falls
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Lack of medical care
  • Death

Prescription dosage errors

Prescription medications come with side effects, most of which are known and warned against. Additionally, the drug must be administered in the correct dose to be safe. When a medication has been distributed in the wrong amount, it can harm the patient. Pharmacists, nurses, prescribing doctors, or other professionals can cause prescription errors.

When a prescription dosage error severely harms a patient, the consequences can include serious complications, including long-term physical damage or loss of life. The prescription drug could consist of the following:

  • Anesthesia
  • Antibiotics
  • Blood pressure medications
  • Antidepressants
  • Any other type of medication prescribed

Workplace injuries

No workplace is entirely safe, and even a quiet office could have hazards that lead to severe injuries or loss of life. Some professions have inherent dangers, including the construction industry, education, and healthcare. If you or a loved one was seriously injured while performing work duties, speaking with Frenkel & Frenkel about what occurred is imperative.

Employees at some businesses have access to workers’ compensation benefits. In many cases, a third party other than the employer may be liable, such as:

  • A vehicle manufacturer
  • Parts manufacturer
  • Architect
  • Utility
  • Scaffold installer

Dog/animal attacks

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but some are vicious. A dog roaming unrestrained in a neighborhood may attack an innocent person, child, or adult, causing severe injuries or, in some tragic cases, loss of life.

These attacks can occur in a home or on private, public, or government property. The dog owner may be held liable in cases of serious injury.

 Dog bites can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Deep lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Crush injuries
  • Tissue torn from body parts
  • Broken bones
  • Head, neck, and facial injuries
  • Nerve damage

Other injuries may require weeks, months, or longer to treat and leave a victim with disfiguring scars.

Child Injuries

Children are curious and active and must be supervised to ensure safety-negligent care can cause severe injuries, a parent’s worst nightmare. They can be injured at a daycare facility, school, park, private or public pool. The injuries can include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Organ damage
  • Loss of life

Industrial accidents

Industrial accidents can leave one or more workers, visitors, or any individual in the area suffering severe injuries. These include:

  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals or other substances
  • Equipment failures
  • Vehicle accidents

Several other incidents can occur in industries operating in Dallas, leaving a person suffering serious or fatal consequences.

Construction accidents

Dallas and Fort Worth are in a growth phase, with countless construction projects in various stages of progress throughout the city. According to OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), the construction industry has led to 52 deaths over just a few years in the Dallas area, as reported in the Dallas Business Journal. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured or killed due to injuries sustained in a construction accident, the facts in the case should be reviewed at once to determine how we can hold the responsible party(ies) accountable.

Slip & Fall

A slip-and-fall accident can occur due to the following:

  • Wet, oily, or icy walking surfaces
  • Items blocking walking areas
  • Faulty or defective stairs, handrails, or other issues

While some falls may cause minor injuries, such as a bruise, others lead to:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic head injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Wrongful death
