WHY HIRE AN ATTORNEY FOR AN AUTO ACCIDENT IN GRAPEVINE, TEXAS?

There were 1,274 accidents reported in Grapevine, Texas in 2019 according to the Texas Department of Transportation’s statistics. Accidents have been on the rise in recent years due to the rise in the number of people driving while distracted. Talking on the phone and texting while driving has caused the number of accidents to increase and has also caused the number of people injured in those accidents to increase.

The Law Office of Doug Goyen represents people who are injured in accidents. The services we provide in accident cases include:

  1. Collecting payments from the insurance company for medical-related bills and expenses.

  2. Helping our clients who do not know where to go for treatment, or do not know how they can afford treatment for their injuries, by helping those clients find medical facilities that can treat their injuries and defer collections on their bills until the insurance company pays the injury claim.

  3. Proving the other driver involved caused the accident so their insurance company accepts liability and pays the claims involved.

  4. Getting the documentation and evidence needed to get our clients paid for their time missed from work due to the accident.

  5. Proving the full value of our client’s personal injury claims, including pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, and other damages. We provide evidence of all the damages done to our clients so the insurance company pays the full value of each claim.

We provide a wide variety of services to our clients. Every case is different, so the service in each case depends on the needs of our client in that case. Call (972) 599 4100, or contact us on our website contact form. The consultation is free, and there is no fee unless you win!

In a Car Accident Case, What Kinds of Damages Are Available?

Car accidents can be disastrous not only for your health but also for your finances. You may be concerned about severe injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. A car accident’s emotional trauma can leave you mentally scarred for the rest of your life. Fortunately, you have legal recourse under Texas law.

If you were seriously injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Damages are classified into two types: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages compensate for losses that are easily quantifiable, such as:

  • Medical expenses (past, present, and future)
  • Wages have been lost.
  • Earning capacity has been lost.
  • Damage to property

Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify and compensate you for more subjective losses such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical impairment

Our Dallas car accident lawyers at the Law Office of Doug Goyen will fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve. We will not hesitate to take your case to trial if the insurance company does not offer you a settlement that covers all of your expenses. Our highly skilled trial lawyers have assisted our clients in obtaining millions of dollars in compensation through jury verdicts and settlements. A sizable portion of that comes from personal injury claims resulting from car accidents.

GRAPEVINE CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST

If you have been involved in an accident, the following checklist helps guide you through the process of making sure you have completed what you need to do to protect your rights and protect yourself.

Included in this checklist are resources specific to residents of Grapevine, Texas when involved in an accident with injuries.

Checklist at the Scene of the Accident:

  1. First thing is to see if anyone is hurt. Check yourself first. The shock of a sudden, traumatic, and unexpected accident sometimes causes people to not realize they are injured at first. Check on any passengers in your vehicle. Check on the people in the other vehicles involved in the accident. Get help right away if anyone is hurt.

  2. If anyone is hurt call 911. Make sure the dispatcher knows people are injured. They will send police and paramedics. Police will secure the accident scene, help with injuries until the paramedics arrive, investigate the accident, and take statements from those who were in the accident.

  3. Get any witness information before they leave. Write down their names, addresses, phone numbers and emails, and any other information they can give you to contact them. The other driver may change their story when the police arrive or may change it when they talk to their insurance company. Give the witness information to your attorney.

    NOTE: Injury may keep you from doing items on this checklist. Call a friend or a family member to get to the scene to help you complete this checklist.

  4. Drivers involved must exchange information. In Texas, the law requires drivers in accidents to exchange their identification and auto insurance with anyone else involved in the accident. Take photos of the IDs and insurance provided.

  5. Take pictures of the damage and the accident scene. Get photos of each vehicle’s damage or point of impact. Get photos of the license plate of each vehicle. Include pictures of your vehicle’s damage too.

    Take photos of the roadway in the direction you were traveling before the accident happened. Take photos of the direction you were coming from too. Do the same for each other vehicle that was involved.

    Get photos of any debris on the ground from the accident and of any skid marks.

  6. Make sure your statement gets taken by the investigating police officer. You want to make sure your version of the accident is taken by the officer writing the accident report.

    How to get your Grapevine Police Department accident report: Grapevine Police Department accident reports can be downloaded online through the Texas Department of Transportation at: Texas Department of Transportation Accident Reports.

  7. Take the advice of the paramedics. If the paramedics advise you to go to the emergency room, you should follow their advice. Paramedics are trained to look for signs and symptoms of possible serious injury.

    If you decide to drive yourself to the emergency room or have someone else drive you, the following emergency rooms are in the Grapevine area:

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AFTER LEAVING THE ACCIDENT

Nobody asks to be injured in an auto accident. If someone causes harm to another person through negligent behavior, Texas law requires the injured person to be compensated by the wrongdoer and their insurance company for the injury and damage caused. The first step you should take in protecting your rights to compensation is to hire a lawyer to represent you for your injury claim. Hire a personal injury lawyer that handles auto accidents. The Law Office of Doug Goyen handles these types of claims. We can start working on your case right away. Call us at (972) 599 4100.

  1. If you are injured you do not need to talk to the insurance company. Let your lawyer talk to your insurance company for you. The insurance adjusters look for ways to pay as little as possible on an injury claim. If they can get you to say something that allows them to deny an injury claim then they will do so.

  2. Get treatment at a medical facility for any injury. Take care of yourself and make sure your injury is treated as soon as possible. If you are unable to afford medical treatment or you do not know where you should go for treatment the Law Office of Doug Goyen can find medical facilities to treat your injury and defer collections on your bills until the insurance company pays the injury claim.

  3. Take pictures of any injury. If you have visible injuries then get photos. Insurance adjusters ask for proof of an injury and photos of visible injuries are part of that proof.

  4. Get your own estimate on your damaged vehicle. Have your own body shop do an estimate for the amount it will cost to do the repairs. Insurance company estimates are always lower than the actual cost to repair the vehicle. They write this estimate and issue a check to the owner of the vehicle in hopes that the person will use that money for something other than repairing the vehicle. This way insurance companies pay less than what damage their driver actually caused.

    If a dispute arises out of the claim and you need to prove the amount it will cost to repair your vehicle in court, you do not want to have to rely on the insurance company’s low estimate. You want to have your own estimate that shows the amount it will actually cost to repair your vehicle.

    Body Shops in Grapevine: The following body shops are in the Grapevine area that can do estimates and do repairs on your vehicle:

    Rental Cars: While your vehicle is undrivable and while it is being repaired if you need a rental car the following rental car companies are in Grapevine, Texas:

  5. Keep a record of bills and receipts. If you have anything you have paid or owe due to the accident give copies of these records to your lawyer so you can be reimbursed.

  6. Be careful about posts on social media. The insurance adjuster and the insurance company lawyers will look through any social media posts and use anything they can find to try and prove you are not injured or not as hurt as you claim.
