Profile

Carson R. Runge loves the competitive challenge of matching wits and intellect with other lawyers. However, he offers a stronger explanation for why he loves his work: Getting a win for the underdog.


"When you have somebody who's injured in an 18-wheeler wreck or a car wreck or in an oil-field incident, the defendant is always going to have a corporation with unlimited resources – whether it be the corporation or a huge insurance company – defending them. To go up against them and win for my client -- that's why I do it."


As a child, Carson knew that he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his father, John B. Runge, a well-known plaintiff's attorney in Arlington.


He graduated magna cum laude from Texas Tech University in 2007 with a degree in Finance and went on to attend Baylor Law School. As a law student, Carson sharpened his skills by participating in numerous national mock trial competitions. During his third year, he won the school's coveted Top Gun mock trial competition against fellow third-year students. He graduated cum laude in 2010.


After he received his J.D., Carson immediately joined Sloan Law Firm, where he has concentrated his practice on catastrophic personal injury cases and achieved several significant settlements and verdicts for his clients.


While those outcomes are noteworthy, Carson says that, in the long run, he wants to be known as a lawyer with a reputation for excellent client service.


"I want to be known as the guy who represents human beings with souls, represents them well, and takes care of them," he says. "I really care about my clients."


He also cares about his profession. Carson has served as President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Gregg County Bar Association. He also belongs to the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, East Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Board of Trial Advocates.


Outside of his legal practice, he serves on the board of the D.O.R.S. Youth Transition Center, a local nonprofit that helps young adults escape poverty.

How Are Rollover Accidents Different From Other Accidents?

Rollover car accidents can be particularly hazardous. In a rollover accident, the vehicle in question literally rolls over itself, often ending up with its wheels in the air and the driver and passengers having sustained significant injuries. In fact, according to SaferCar.gov, nearly one-third of rollovers result in fatalities; that’s a higher fatality rate than any other kind of accident. However, it may be possible to guard against a rollover to some degree. Loss of control is a significant factor in rollovers. There are many reasons a driver may lose control of their vehicle, including distraction, inclement weather, another driver’s interference, or other external stimuli. Additionall... […]

Muchas personas, después de varios años de experiencia de manejo, se consideran seguras y confiables en el camino. Desafortunadamente, esta actitud puede llevar a algunos conductores a empujar sin saberlo sus límites físicos y mentales mientras conducen. Cuando un conductor intenta viajar varias horas sin descansar o ignora los signos de cansancio y falta de concentración, puede verse involucrado en un accidente grave. Los camioneros no son la excepción a este problema. Los vehículos de 18 ruedas son más grandes y pesados ​​que los autos compactos estándar, lo que hace que sea peligroso encontrarse con uno en una situación insegura.

The Dangers of Fatigued Truck Drivers

The Dangers of Fatigued Truck Drivers

Many people, after several years of driving experience, consider themselves to be safe and reliable on the road. Unfortunately, this attitude can lead some drivers to unknowingly push their physical and mental limits while driving. When a driver attempts to travel several hours without rest or ignores signs that they are growing tired and less focused, they can be involved in a serious accident. Truck drivers are no exception to this problem. 18 wheelers are larger and heavier than standard compact cars, which makes it dangerous to encounter one in an unsafe situation. If a driver is doing something unsafe, but they are awake and alert, they can sometimes correct their actions before any... […]
