Lawsuits occur, and they can be costly. This is particularly true for those who are in the middle of litigation and waiting for a settlement or jury verdict.
Here are some recent personal injury statistics to consider, as reported from TxDOT, in Dallas and throughout Dallas County:
- There were 31,950 total crashes in Dallas in 2018, including 202 fatalities and 1,038 serious injuries.
- There were 93 fatalities on urban interstates in Dallas County
- Compare that to 89 fatalities that occurred on urban U.S. and state highways
- In 2020, despite a decrease in traffic crashes, 731 people died in pedestrian-related accidents, an increase by 9 percent from 2019.
- Bicycle accidents claimed the lives of 82 in 2020, up from 68 deaths the previous year.
Given this information, it is no wonder there are many personal injury victims in the Dallas area who have filed lawsuits and are in need of compensation for their damages. Our team members at Tribeca have helped clients, pre-settlement, through Allen lawsuit loans.

Common Arguments Made by the Defense
Some common defense arguments we find our plaintiffs have to fight during their lawsuit cases only prolong the timeline, and it is why our clients desperately need our Allen lawsuit loans.
One strategy by the defense is to argue that the injured plaintiff is partially or totally at fault for said injuries; for example, the at-fault driver in a rear-end accident claims that the injured plaintiff failed to signal a lane change, so he/she is partially at-fault. According to Texas law, a plaintiff cannot recover compensation from damages if he or she is found to be 51 percent or more at fault. And, because of the argument of contributory negligence by the plaintiff, by the Texas law of modified comparative fault, if the injured plaintiff is found to be 20 percent at-fault for the accident, then damages awarded by a court would be reduced by 20 percent as well.
A few other defense arguments include:
- Lack of fault by the defendant, claiming the injured plaintiff is fully responsible
- Assumption of risk by the injured person in an obviously dangerous activity in which a waiver was signed
- The plaintiff had pre-existing injuries or similar past injuries to the same area of the body
- The suit was not filed prior to the expiration of the Texas statute of limitations
Our team of lawsuit loan professionals at Tribeca, along with your experienced attorney, will help you fight through these possible defense strategies, both legally and financially.
