I loved Ben Abbott
They handled the case pretty well, i just wish the communication was better. They are a busy office and i found myself having to call them back frequently. I also had to bring quite a bit of my own paperwork to their office. Those are the only struggles i witnessed. On the good side, the attitude was wonderful! The staff was very professional and friendly, and I loved that. Once I was able to reach them, they were always helpful and able to explain where my case was at. I loved that about this firm. I would definitely come back! I have had experiences with another personal injury law firm that i would never recommend, but i would definitely recommend Ben abbott.

I'm so glad that I called Ben Abbott!!!!
My daughter and I were in an auto accident and all I had to do is pick up the phone and make one call to Ben Abbott's office and they handled everything for me and my daughter, I was able to focus on every day life while Abbott and his staff took care of the legal end. I WOULD absolutely call Ben Abbott again if I was in a situation like this one again.

OVERALL A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
My experience has been great, if there was anything that could be improved it would be returning calls, but I was grateful for the way thee case was handled. I have referred several people to you guys because you are always able to correct any frustrations.

They were willing to get me my money, fast!
Despite the time it took to settle my case, they were able to get me my check faster than I would have gotten it if I had waited for the insurance.

Thanks to Ben Abbott!
Statute of limitations deadline on my case was 12/1/16, Mr. Abbott contacted me on 11/30/16 - he was able to file my auto personal injury lawsuit in District Court by the next day and saved me from losing out entirely on an injury claim settlement that was rejected by opposing insurance company. It was a miracle.

Best Around
My son was injured when a car drove thru his daycare during nap time. I heard is commercials on the radio & decided to call & see if I had a case. Someone from their office came out and signed my son up the same day. My case manager Blanca was so helpful and so was her assistant Maria they answered allnmy questions. They settled with the insurance company making sure I was satisfied.

Good Attorney
I was a passenger in my sister in law car. We were headed home from a familys house. On the way my sister in law ran a red light. we got hit on the drivers side. I got hurt and had extreme pain on my lower back. A friend told me about Ben Abbott so i gave him a call. I was sent to get seen by a dr and got treated. Ben Abbott helped me settle my case and i was very happy with the results!!

Worth the Wait
I was the second car in a chain reaction accident involving 4 vehicles. I was hit multiple times during the accident. My co-worker reccommended I call Ben Abbott.My accident was in Dec 2009 it took 2 & 1/2 years to settle my case, but well worth the wait. I gladly reccommend this firm to anyone.

3years of helpful service
Ben Abbott and his great team have handled 3 cases for me. My 1st case was Sept 09, I was hit by a car as I was walking out of a dept store. I orginially hired another attorney but when they dropped my case I called The Law Office of Ben Abbott. When I was injured in as finder binder the in May 2011 I hired Ben & his team again. My second case was a great experience with this firm they settled my case in less than a year. So I had no choice but to rehire them again in Feb 2012 when I was involved in another car accident. I would not use any other attorney.

Hit and Run Case
I was hit when a driver side swiped my car and fled the scene. The police did come and wrote a report of the accident. I contacted a family friend who suggested The Law Office of Ben Abbott. It took almost 2 years but it finally settled with great results. Thanks to Ben Abbot & all his staff.

Fair Deal
I was involved in a car accident when another driver made an unsafe lane change hitting my vehicle. I hired The Law Office of Ben Abbott to help with my case and then I changed my mind. They provided me with copies of all my paperwork and were very understanding of my situation. Thank you for all your help.

Hard working firm
When I was driving home from work I was hit from behind by a speeding driver. I didn't think I was hurt until the next day my body felt sore. I called the other drivers insurance company but they gave me a really hard time. A passenger in my car suggested we hire a lawyer. It took this firm a year and a half to settle our case but it was worth the wait. Thank you.

"Mr. Abbott is a vastly experienced attorney who helps his clients achieve the favorable results they deserve. I have had the pleasure to observe this first hand and that, combined with his invaluable tutelage is the reason I endorse Mr. Abbott."
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 23
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I worked with Ben in 03'-04' about a year out of law school after working for a defense firm. I learned more in my one year working at the Law Office of Ben Abbott than any year in practice, trying 27 cases in 14 months. When 95% of other personal injury law firms in Dallas only want to settle cases and either refer out your case or drop it if they have to file suit, Ben will almost always file suit right away if the insurance company denies responsibility or makes a ridiculous low first offer. Also unlike ALOT of personal injury law firms, he actually still tries cases in front of a jury himself, so he knows how hard his staff and associate attorneys have to fight to get a case ready to win at trial and makes sure they have the research and resources they need to succeed. The philosophy about litigation that I learned while I was there “si vis pacem, para bellum” (if you want peace prepare for war) is still the key to success I live by in handling litigation files to this day."
