Speeding injury Speeding is a type of aggressive driving and one of the leading causes of car accidents. Most people drive a little faster than the speed limit almost instinctively. Problems arise when people speed excessively or when they speed in dangerous conditions.

Due to the severity of the impact of a speeding vehicle, speeding drivers cause many serious car accidents with injuries. When a driver speeds, they are exceeding what experts have determined to be a safe speed limit for the specific roadway they are on. Speeding on a roadway causes a driver to be unable to react in time, lose control of their vehicle, or cause other drivers to pull out in front of the speeding vehicle because the other driver was unable to see or properly judge the speed of the speeding vehicle as it came around a curve or passed a slower vehicle.

Section 545.351 of the Texas Transportation Code prohibits driving at a speed greater than what is reasonably prudent under the circumstances and conditions.

Section 545.352 goes on to say that exceeding the speed limit is “prima facie” evidence that the driver was not driving reasonably or prudently.

In most cases, there are injuries involved because a speeding vehicle causes a more severe impact. These injuries are frequently severe or permanent.

Hire an attorney before dealing with the insurance company regarding your injury claim. Insurance adjusters are trained to avoid paying claims whenever possible. They will look for anything you say to use as an excuse not to pay you. For decades, insurance defense lawyers have trained them to pattern questions in order to lead you into saying things that they can later twist into language that you may not realize can be used against you later to deny your claim. They have been trained to avoid paying claims and will do everything in their power to avoid paying you on your injury claim.

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.
