A part of the morbid fascination people have with celebrity news is when a celebrity is injured or killed in a car accident. No matter who you are, a car accident is a terrifying event that can change your life and the lives of the ones you love. When celebrities get into car accidents, they may have their promising careers cut short, or they may be taken from us in their prime. No one wants to see anyone get into a car accident, but celebrity car accidents tend to be front-page news for several days. When we look back on the stars we’ve lost and almost lost to car accidents, it can make those who have not been in car accidents feel more fortunate.

James Dean

James Dean was born in 1931 and had starred in classic movies such as East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause. By 1956, he had established his reputation as one of the up-and-coming icons in the movie business, and his future looked very bright. But on Sept. 30, 1955, Dean and his mechanic were killed when another car made a sudden turn and collided head-on with the actor’s vehicle.

Paul Walker

After a successful career in television soap operas, Paul Walker launched his movie career with the successful Fast and Furious franchise. On Nov. 30, 2013, Walker was killed when he and a friend lost control of their sports car while on their way to a charitable function.

Ryan Dunn

Ryan Dunn was a stunt performer most known for his work on the MTV television series “Jackass.” After years of performing dangerous, and often ludicrous, stunts, it was ironic that Dunn’s life was cut short by a car accident. On June 20, 2011, Dunn’s alcohol level was twice the legal limit when he crashed his car at a speed of 130 miles per hour.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana made headlines as a “common girl” who married Prince Charles and became royalty. On Aug. 31, 1997, she made headlines when she was killed in a car wreck that was allegedly caused by over-aggressive paparazzi.

Lisa Lopes

Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was a member of the singing group TLC who was eying a solo career when her life was tragically cut short. On April 25, 2002, Lopes was killed in an auto accident on a highway in Honduras while spending time with family.

Tracy Morgan

While not every celebrity is able to come away from a car accident with their life, comedian Tracy Morgan was fortunate to survive a car crash that killed one person. In June 2014, Morgan was a passenger in a vehicle with several other people when a truck driver crashed into their vehicle. It was determined that the truck driver had been driving for 28 hours, which put him in violation of several state and federal laws. Comedian James McNair, another passenger in the vehicle at the time, was killed.

Kanye West

Before he was making headlines for his outrageous behavior, rapper Kanye West was making headlines for his driving. In October 2002, West was involved in a one-car accident in Los Angeles while he was in town to record tracks for an album. The rapper suffered a broken jaw but eventually made a full recovery.

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.
