Dallas Personal Injury Lawyers, Texas

Strong advocacy for accident victims and families in Dallas and throughout Texas

Slack Davis Sanger has represented individuals and families impacted by catastrophic accident cases since 1993. We know that a major car or truck accident, an aircraft accident or a construction or workplace accident, can be devastating economically and emotionally. The immediate onset of fear and anger typically follows in the wake of a catastrophic accident involving death or permanent injuries to a family member. The chaos and confusion resulting from such an accident are extremely disruptive and aggravate the already significant emotional consequences.

The prospect of mounting medical expenses and the fear of economic ruin leave most families impacted by a catastrophic accident in despair. Questions about how the medical bills and paying the rent or the mortgage are paramount worries for our clients.

At Slack Davis Sanger we have always welcomed the opportunity to step in and remove the chaos, worry and anxiety about the future and place it on our shoulders. We want our clients focused on their medical recovery or, with the death of a loved one, the grieving process. Besides freeing up our clients to focus on their recoveries, we will confidently and thoroughly investigate the accident, identify the legally responsible parties, and prosecute your lawful claims aggressively. We hold the responsible parties accountable for the devastation to your life. While we seek optimum compensation for your losses from the responsible parties, we will also seek to change the pattern or practice that caused the accident to eliminate or mitigate the risk so that others may not have to endure a similar accident in the future.

Slack Davis Sanger has the experience and resources to help you get justice. Our lawyers have more than 200 years of combined experience. In addition to our firm’s in-house technical knowledge, we work with a team of professionals including investigators, safety experts, and subject matter specialist to develop the most formidable case possible.

Experienced Dallas litigators handling aviation accidents

Plane, jet, and other types of aviation crashes are often deadly. In 2019, according to the Insurance Information Institute, 414 Americans died in aviation accidents. When a passenger dies, our Dallas aviation accident lawyers file wrongful death cases on behalf of the spouses, children, parents. We demand compensation for the loss of the love, companionship, mental anguish, and economic damages caused by the aviation crash.

The Dallas aviation attorneys of Slack Davis Sanger have earned a worldwide reputation for fighting for families and for survivors who suffer life-altering injuries. This reputation is based on our strong record of success arguing before juries and negotiating with insurance adjustors.

What types of commercial truck claims do your Dallas attorneys handle?

Commercial truck accidents often cause death or catastrophic injuries due to their size, weight, and dimensions. Sadly, in 2019, Texas led America in deadly commercial truck accidents, just as it has for years before.

At Slack Davis Sanger, our Dallas injury lawyers understand the complexities of commercial truck accidents. In commercial truck accidents, there are often multiple victims and multiple defendants. Drivers and truck owners of all commercial trucks – such as 18-wheelers, semis, and hazardous trucks – are required to comply with federal and state trucking laws; when they do not, the results can be devastating for everyone. We ensure that the trucking companies, as well as drivers, shippers, brokers, and manufacturers are held accountable when their negligence leads to your injuries.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 205,498 persons were injured in motor vehicle traffic accidents in 2020. There wasn’t one day in 2020 where someone didn’t die on a Texas road.

Do I need a lawyer for a Dallas car accident?

While the laws never require a person to hire a lawyer after a car crash, it is in your best interest to do so. Serious car accidents often require investigators, car manufacturing experts, traffic reconstructionist experts, and medical experts, so working with a Dallas car accident lawyer who has a network of resources benefits you. At Slack Davis Sanger, our lawyers move quickly to show how car accidents happened, and who is responsible. We represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, bicycle riders, and the families of deceased victims in injury claims in Dallas and throughout the state.


Seasoned Dallas worksite accident lawyers

Two of the most perilous types of professions in the country are oil and gas extraction and construction. Workers usually work outdoors, often in extreme weather. They rely on tools, equipment, and machinery that may be defective or unsafe. Both professions require strenuous physical labor. The chances of a worker being seriously, permanently injured in either profession is high.

In Texas, unlike most other states, employers are not always required to have workers’ compensation insurance. As such, the only option you may have if you’re hurt at work is a personal injury lawsuit. At Slack Davis Sanger, our Dallas work injury lawyers usually hold employers accountable by filing personal injury and product liability claims on behalf of workers injured while performing oil and gas extraction work, construction work, or any other type of work. We understand how crushing it is for workers to suffer injuries that prevent them from ever doing the same job again, or any job, again. We fight for families when a worker is killed while providing an income for his/her family.

We understand and work with doctors who understand the injuries you have and the challenges you face. It is our extensive experience in fighting for work injury victims and families and our strong track record of success that leads many injury victims to hire us. We help show that employers, manufacturers, and others were responsible for your inability to work, pain and suffering, medical bills, scarring and disfigurement, and other damages.

Can you hold manufacturers liable for defective vehicles?

Yes, you can. Car manufacturers, distributors, and retailers have a duty to make their vehicles safe. In fact, there is no need to prove negligence. Manufacturers and others in the supply chain are strictly liable if their defective vehicles cause death or an injury.

At Slack Davis Sanger, we handle all auto defect claims, including those caused by:

  • Defective brakes
  • Defective airbags
  • Defective tires
  • Defective ignition switches
  • Defective fuel lines
  • Defective electrical systems

These defects can cause explosions, fires, and crashes. In most cases, vehicle defects will cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

At Slack Davis Sanger, our Dallas defective vehicle accident lawyers demand that car makers put your safety before their profits. We represent individuals and classes in auto product liability claims in Texas and throughout the country. Contact us to learn more.

Holding Dallas healthcare providers liable for medical malpractice

Medical malpractice victims often live with chronic pain, and need long-term medical care with many different doctors and therapists. Many patients can never work again. Doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers have a duty to provide competent medical care. They can be held liable if they make an improper diagnosis, commit mistakes during surgeries, commit malpractice during the delivery of a child, prescribe the wrong medicines, or commit any act of negligence.

While Texas and the federal government impose caps on non-economic damages, you are entitled to claim damages up to the caps. You can also seek damages for your medical bills and your lost income, which in most, but not all, cases are not capped. At Slack Davis Sanger, our Dallas medical malpractice lawyers work with many medical professionals who can help prove what medical mistakes occurred and demonstrate the full extent of your injuries. Contact us to learn more.

Slack Davis Sanger was founded in 1993 because we thought other personal injury firms were not helping catastrophic injury victims in the way those victims deserved.

What Clients Say

"My experience with Mike Slack was exceptional. Surviving a plane crash is extremely traumatic both physically and emotionally, and adding the task of navigating through legal issues was overwhelming. I interviewed several attorneys and knew after our first visit that he was different - he cared about me and about my family. He and his staff were patient and very kind as they spent time getting to know us all. I felt like he truly wanted to help and that is what he did."
