The Tracy Law Firm
The Tracy Law Firm brings personal injury and product liability lawsuits against vehicle manufacturers as well as car dealers for safety defects that cause a fatal car accident or catastrophic injury from a car accident. Sadly, our clients who suffer from a car accident injury usually cannot walk in the door of the law firm’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas. For example, they often suffer from a traumatic car accident brain injury or a spinal cord injury that requires expensive lifelong hospital and medical care. Other traumatic car accident injuries include: loss of limb, fractured skull, crushed foot, and facial scars to mention a few. The firm specializes in an area of the law called Vehicle Crashworthiness.
Very few law practices have both the legal and technical ability to handle a car accident lawsuit against the largest companies in the world. The Tracy Law Firm uses a three-step-process called Examine, Expose, Effect to prove its cases and to recover financial damages for its clients.
When the Tracy Law Firm evaluates a motor vehicle accident case, our experts examine the car wreck by conducting a vehicle autopsy. We transport wrecked vehicles from across the country to our Crash Lab in Dallas, Texas. We rarely take a case if the car, truck, or bus is not available because it contains crucial evidence to prove our client’s case against the car company. A team of veteran automotive engineers and biomedical scientists determine if the vehicle’s occupant protection systems failed during the car crash. Based on the vehicle autopsy we start building a legal case that exposes the vehicle safety defects that caused the deadly or traumatic injury. The Tracy Law Firm is dedicated to ensuring that the effect of these lawsuits will force car makers and the government to put safer vehicles on the road.
Watch the video below for an inside look at what we do in the Crash Lab and how we conduct crash tests to help win our clients’ lawsuits.
Todd Tracy – Personal Injury Lawyer and Auto Safety Expert
For more than twenty-five years, personal injury attorney Todd Tracy has recovered more than one billion dollars in damages for his clients as a safety watchdog over auto manufacturers. The Dallas Morning News described Tracy as a car accident lawyer with “the stance and presence of a middleweight boxer.” The automotive industry has felt his punch for many the years as they squared off in courtrooms across the United States. Tracy has tried more Vehicle Crashworthiness cases than any attorney in the world and he has won most of them. He is not the typical car accident attorney that you see on television commercials. In fact, many of those same TV car wreck attorneys bring their safety defect cases to the Tracy Law Firm.
Todd Tracy brings to bear nearly three decades of experience as a personal injury attorney as well as his educational background in physics. He conducts complex engineering investigations using state of the art technology to determine if the vehicle safety systems failed to work properly in the motor vehicle accident. Todd says, “I don’t care who was at fault in the vehicle accident. We focus on what caused the catastrophic injuries or death.”
The Tracy Law Firm spends tens of thousands of dollars on scientific studies and crash tests to develop and prove their client’s cases. Todd Tracy takes these difficult cases on a contingency fee basis which means he only receives his legal fee if his client wins. If his client does not win the case, then the client does not owe the Tracy Law Firm any money.
Tracy and his legal team try personal injury and product liability lawsuits in 42 states including Puerto Rico. He is often featured as an expert in national and local news reports about motor vehicle safety .
The effect of Todd Tracy’s safety research and lawsuits has been to force auto manufacturers and the federal government to require safer cars and trucks as well as to order recalls to protect drivers and their occupants. His work and that of the small community of car accident lawyers who specialize in Vehicle Crashworthiness law believe they have spurred the auto industry into putting seat belts and airbags into cars, anti-lock brakes, stronger roofs, and protection from a car fire in an auto accident. Todd prides himself on standing up for those who are injured or lost their life and recovering financial damages to support victim’s lifestyles.
Todd and his wife are the parents of a teenage daughter and son, and he coaches his son’s traveling baseball team. The family also enjoys the outdoors and are avid snow skiers. Tracy has been actively involved in auto racing and sponsored an Indy car. Because of his involvement in auto racing, he has incorporated safety research from racing into his auto safety law practice. Todd actively supports non profit organizations that support cancer research.
