Accountants

Like workers in many other professions, accountants are subject to professional liability claims for negligence, as well as violations of federal and state statutes relating to the sale of securities. However, pursuing professional liability claims against accountants may differ from claims in other areas of employment based on written rules of conduct for the accounting and auditing professions.

Our firm takes a broad view of any professional liability claim, an approach that can potentially uncover and increase the compensation our clients may receive for financial losses and other damages.

Unlike most employees who are covered under workers’ compensation laws, railroad workers must rely on the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) to prove their injury claims. Under FELA, railroad workers must show that their injuries were caused by the negligence of their employer, fellow employees, or licensed contractors.

Based on battles against some of the country’s leading railroad companies and their insurers, our legal team provides clients with experience and knowledge in FELA cases involving train accidents and other railroad injuries.

Working in conjunction with our team of railroad lawyers, our staff of in-house and outside investigators, medical professionals, computer animators, video production professionals and illustrators use computer modeling, video recreations, and other elements to communicate to judges and juries how our clients were injured and the nature of their injuries.

When drivers of 18-wheelers and semi-trucks behave irresponsibly or irrationally behind the wheel, the risk of a truck wreck goes up exponentially. Aggressive driving and road rage can take different forms, including reckless tailgating, rude gestures, excessive speed, frequent lane changes, and deliberate obstruction of traffic.

Road rage and aggressive driving accidents are common in the trucking industry because drivers often receive payment for each completed job, rather than the time they spend behind the wheel. Under this payment model, truck drivers are pushed to drive at excessive speeds and arrive at their destination quickly in order to move on to their next paying job. Under these economic pressures, drivers may cut corners and circumvent federal laws regulating the amount of time that truck drivers can spend behind the wheel each day. Some drivers abuse drugs in order to stay awake and meet their demanding schedules.

The legal team at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson has decades of experience successfully representing individuals who have suffered injuries in truck accidents caused by aggressive driving. These cases often require a quick and thorough response. Our attorneys take care to identify and preserve evidence, analyze and investigate the causes of the accident, and assemble an expert team of investigators, industry experts, and medical professionals to build a persuasive legal case.

Successful businesses are often built on trust. Corporate executives, managers, directors, employees, and even outside partners are trusted and relied on to perform their duties based on good faith, care, and loyalty to the organization. When these individuals fail to follow ethical and legal standards in fulfilling these obligations, a breach of fiduciary duty may occur. This may also occur in the legal malpractice areas.

When the circumstances require a focused response, the experienced attorneys at The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson work to make sure those responsible are also held accountable. Our Dallas firm represents clients who have been victimized by the inappropriate behavior of a banker, trustee, manager, corporate officer, business partner, lawyer, or other professional. These claims may involve allegations of fraud, withholding vital information, covering up tax and insurance liabilities, self-dealing, ignoring conflict-of-interest and a variety of other actions.

Determining the cause and assessing damages in these cases can be complex, involving the examination of thousands of documents, a thorough understanding of the financial issues, and disclosure of all the information that is relevant to the business relationship. To be successful, it is usually necessary to illustrate how the breach of fiduciary duty occurred and what the consequential damages were and whether the conduct benefitted the wrongdoer at the victim’s expense.
