My fiancée and I were in a wreck in Hurst several months ago on Precinct-Line Road. A man tried to run a stop sign and hit us head on. It completely totaled our car. No one wanted to help us. Allstate blew us off -- didn't want to help us one bit...
I was hit by a Medstar Ambulance, and the insurance company has just been horrible to me so I decided to hire Mr. Berenson. Boy am I glad I did. I got more money than I expected and I'm being taken care of for my injuries. I'm so happy.
Client Testimonial Video. He was rear ended at a stop light, but the crash did no damage to his truck, he waited two weeks before seeking medical treatment, and he had five neck and back surgeries prior to this wreck...

Amazing Work - Awesome Firm
My life would be different today had I not engaged with the Berensen Law Firm. I was driving in my lane on a curve, when the unexpected happened. I was hit head on and suffered a concussion, multiple compressed dics as well as herniated discs. When I called my primary doctor for follow up, I was refused an appointment because it was an auto accident. I needed medical attention and found Mr. Berensen online. He accepted my case even before the accident report was available, shannon Taylor, of the practice, negotiated appointments for all medical professionals required to analyze my condition and recommend treatment plans, which I can pursue today, only because of the thorough and professional attention this elite team dedicated to my case.

The most incredible attorney in Texas
My daughter and I were involved in a horrific automobile accident in March of 2019. We were both very seriously injured and required months and months of treatment, surgery, physical therapy, etc. Our lives had been turned upside down. We found Berenson Injury Law and Bill Berenson has helped us to turn everything back around. He completely stepped up to the plate and went above and beyond. He ALWAYS answered our questions. He and his staff always called back. They thought of things that we never would have thought of regarding our treatment and recovery. They called on a regular basis and kept us updated. I never in all of my imagination even would begin to think that he could have recovered the amount of money that he has for us. We are beyond blessed and grateful for everything that he has done for us. If you are reading this do not hesitate to call his office because he will take care of everything you need and he will make sure that you, the client, are taken care of. He is an attorney that genuinely cares about his clients.

Grateful
Wanted to share my journey with Bill Berenson and staff. My husband was killed by a drunk driver December 7, 2019. I was devastated and not knowing what steps I need to take a friend of mine reached out to informed me of the urgency to find a lawyer. He did the research and referred Bill Berenson attorney injury lawyer to me who had great reviews and 5 stars. After meeting with Mr. Berenson and Mr. Stan I was convinced I did not need to look any further for a lawyer. I felt confident that he and his staff would work hard for me even though nothing would be able to bring my husband back. Mr. Berenson asked me to Trust him to handle my case knowing that I had so much to deal with. Mr. Berenson, Ms. Shannon, Ms. Jessica and Ms. Stan kept me informed every step of the way by calling, emails and text messages. Mr. Berenson displayed so much compassion and work diligently throughout the entire process. He remembered me by sending a beautiful cake for Christmas. I've received many calls from Ms. Shannon asking if there's anything she or the firm could do for me after the case was settled. Allow me to inject the drunk driver had no insurance but Mr. Berenson being the professional lawyer that he is work hard to get them to pay for damages. A special thank you to Mr. Berenson and staff for sticking by my side. If you need an Accident Injury Lawyer I highly recommend Bill Berenson of Fort Worth, TX

Bad accident
After my accident I searched the web for an attorney to represent me. After looking at reviews of the high profile lawyers you see on TV, I defiantly knew that was not the way to go. One name stood out..... William Berenson.... If you get a funny feeling after talking to the insurance adjusters (like I did) do not hesitate! Call Mr Berenson! He and his whole staff will put your mind at ease! They will take care of you!! If I have the need of his services again I will not hesitate to call his office and would recommend him to anyone... he's got your back.

I was involved in an accident where I was struck from behind by a person who was too busy texting to pay attention to their driving. I was hurt and lost time at work because of my injuries. It took a long time for me to recover and the lost wages were adding up. The best decision I made was to hire Mr. Berenson to represent me. He and his staff were amazing! He fought very hard to make sure that my medical bills were paid and that I was able to recoup my lost wages. If you need someone on your side who will fight for you, hire Mr. Berenson right away!!

Excellent
Mr. Berenson and his staff provided me legal advice and guidance. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. While working with Mr. Berenson, I felt my situation was in trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong. I would highly recommend Mr. Berenson to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Mr. Berenson and his staff again. Mr. Berenson helped me settle my case making me alot more money than expected, and for that my family and I are very grateful.

Highly recommend
Bill represented me after a terrible RTA and he worked hard and persistently to get me the settlement I deserved. What impressed me about Bill is that he is very personal and very easy to get hold of, unlike some of the bigger firms.

I recommend Mr. William Bereson to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney.
I was absolutely impressed with Mr. Berenson and his team. They were all very kind and empathetic toward the situation we were in. My car was totaled and I took the brunt of the hit. Both of my kids were properly installed in their car seats and for that I am thankful, as their injuries were far less. His team makes the process as smooth as possible for their clients. They went far above my expectations and even lent us interest free money to help with a repair to our other car. We were treated as human and not as if we were just a dollar amount. Their level of detail and care was phenomenal. Any questions I had were answered promptly and his team was always able to help me find solutions as issues arose. Mr. Berenson was able to fight for a settlement that was far more than I anticipated. I hope I don't find myself in an accident again, but if I do, I would trust my case with Mr. Berenson.

The office made the best of a terrible situation. After a semi-trailer accident that nearly cost me my career as a truck driver; I feared the worst. William Berenson went above and beyond to help me through the entire ordeal.
