Case: 18 wheeler causes collision and injuries but its driver lies about what happened:

(Insurance company was denying case based on their driver’s statement. Witnesses did not stay at scene of collision because of the heavy rainstorm. We located their information on the 911 tapes and records. These witnesses confirmed our client’s version of the collision). 

When we first spoke to our client about his case, liability had already been denied by the 18 wheeler's insurance company.  The client and his family were almost ready to give up on the case because they could not find evidence to prove they were telling the truth about how the collision occurred.  The collision was on the highway at night during a heavy rain storm.  The driver of the 18 wheeler claimed our client had changed lanes in front of him and caused the collision.  The police officer's report agreed with the 18 wheeler - but the officer was unable to get our client's side of the story because of his injuries.  No eye witnesses had stayed at the scene, so the police officer only had the word of the driver of the 18 wheeler to go on when he wrote his report.  

We ordered the 911 tapes to see if there were possibly other witnesses.  We overheard witnesses on those 911 tapes that were not listed on the police report.  The witnesses on the 911 tapes had actually witnessed the collision occur.  We tracked down those witnesses and obtained their statements.  The witnesses found on those 911 tapes stated that the 18 wheeler had been speeding, and the 18 wheeler's trailer hydroplaned on the wet roads into our client's lane and knocked our client's vehicle off the road, forcing it to roll over several times. 

We filed suit and forced the 18 wheeler's insurance company to settle for a large 6 figure settlement.

Very efficient staff. I am VERY pleased with this firm. Gina W.
Very professional job handling my accident claim. I had some ER bills, and some visits to my ortho after (and various other bills that kept coming in). I was afraid I was going to get stuck owing money, but Doug Goyen took care of the case and had everything paid, including compensating me for the injury. Great lawyer IMO. I felt like my case was taken care of very well. Thx!! Bernard M.
Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen helped me recovery every bit I was owed on my claim. Very happy I used them. They knew what they were doing, and kept me informed. I felt taken care of the whole way. You wont go wrong using them. Arthur H.
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
