Sandra was traveling on the Jacksboro Highway in Fort Worth, Texas when an 18-wheeler suddenly, and without warning, changed lanes unsafely, thus causing a violent wreck with her automobile.

Sandra was immediately transported by ambulance from the scene of the car accident to the emergency room for medical treatment and evaluation. An MRI revealed a torn MCL, necessitating surgery.

Unfortunately, Sandra had retained one of those law firms plastered all over the phone books and late night television. As is so often the case, the law firm suggested settling for pennies on the dollar. Sandra then sought the legal services of the Law Office of Brian Hargrove.

Mr. Hargrove evaluated the case and confirmed the offer was considerably low. After properly preparing a settlement package for her car accident, Mr. Hargrove settled the case for $130,000.00.


Jimmy was stopped at a toll booth on the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco, Texas when suddenly, without warning, he was violently struck in the back of his vehicle by a large Chrysler.

Immediately following the car wreck, Jimmy went to the emergency room for medical evaluation and treatment. Due to the continuing pain, he followed up with physical therapy to recover from his car wreck. An MRI revealed that he had torn his MCL during the wreck. This injury required surgery.

Jimmy was referred to the Law Office of Brian Hargrove by his son, Kelly, a client. When Kelly heard his dad had called a TV lawyer he immediately referred him to our office. Jimmy then opted to retain the services of Brian Hargrove, a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers.

The insurance company made a final settlement offer of $80,000. Mr. Hargrove believed this was a gross undervaluation of the claim and recommended litigation. The claim settled prior to trial for $150,000.00.
