Red Car wrecked The Texas Department of Transportation’s 2019 accident data shows 1,405 reported auto accidents in Mesquite and 55,346 accidents in Dallas County, Texas. The increase in accidents in recent years is due largely to distracted drivers. Drivers divide their attention between looking at their phones and driving. With the increased number of accidents comes an increased number of people injured.

The Law Office of Doug Goyen represents people injured in accidents. We provide a variety of ways we assist. The following are the common areas we assist with car accident injury claims:

  1. Getting the insurance company to pay the medical bills from your accident. Including ambulance, emergency room, ER doctors, radiology, family doctors, specialists, chiropractic, therapists, or any other medical bill related to your accident.

  2. We help our clients find medical facilities that can treat them for their accident-related injuries.

  3. We help our clients find medical facilities willing to defer collection on their bills until the insurance company releases payment related to their injury.

  4. We get the evidence needed to prove liability so there is no excuse for the insurance company to delay or deny payment.

  5. We gather the evidence needed to get our clients paid for their lost income from missing work due to the accident.

  6. We get the evidence needed to get the full value of pain and suffering, and other ways the injury has caused damage to our clients, so our clients get the full settlement value for their case.

Damages Available to Car Crash Victims

What kind of compensation can you get if you’ve been in a car accident and suffered an injury? In most cases, victims of personal injury are entitled to monetary and non-monetary compensation. The specific damages available to you will be determined by the gravity of your accident and the nature of your injuries.

Economic damages are payments made to compensate you for the financial costs of an accident. These can include both your current out-of-pocket expenses and any costs that can be reasonably projected. Medical bills, nursing care, property damage, and lost wages during recovery are all examples of economic damages.

Non-economic damages are payments made to compensate you for injuries and harms that do not have a direct financial cost. Because these injuries are difficult to quantify, a monetary award can vary greatly from case to case. Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and disfigurement are all examples of non-economic damages.


Many accidents could have been avoided if people had simply paid more attention or made better choices. Accidents occur for a variety of reasons, some of which are unpredictable. Drunk driving, reckless driving, and speeding, for example, are completely at the discretion of the driver.

If you've been in an accident, you'll need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for the compensation you may be entitled to under the law. Call us today to arrange for a free case evaluation with a member of our team. We recognize that you are under a great deal of stress, and we want to do everything we can to assist you in getting through this difficult time. You can get help from our car accident lawyers.

While car accident injuries vary depending on the person and the crash, there are a few that are common. The list that follows is a general overview of common car accident injuries. A doctor should always be consulted for more specific information about a specific case. Automobile accidents can result in the following injuries:


The following checklist is designed for people who have been injured in an auto accident. It has specific information helpful to Mesquite, Texas residents who have been involved in an accident.

  1. Check yourself over, make sure what your injuries are. A major car accident is a traumatic event and the shock from the event can sometimes hide serious injuries. Make sure you are ok. Next check on any passengers you may have. After that check on the people in the other vehicles. If anyone is injured get help immediately.

  2. Call 911 and report the accident. Let them know there are injuries if you or anyone else is hurt.

  3. Exchange information with the other drivers. Texas law requires you to exchange identification and automobile liability insurance information after an accident. This is required regardless of who is at fault, everyone exchanges their information after an accident. Take photographs with your cellphone of the ID and auto liability insurance cards.

  4. Take photos of the damage to each vehicle, yours, and the other vehicles involved. If you are too injured to take photos, call a friend or family member to the scene to help out if possible.

  5. Take photos of the accident scene. Get pictures of any skid marks on the ground and any debris from the accident in the area. Take photos of the roadway you were driving on – where you were coming from and where you were going. Take photos of the roadway the other drivers were driving on – where they were coming from and where they were going.

  6. Cooperate with the police when they show up. They will interview everyone involved separately to get each person’s statement about what happened. Give them your statement and ask for the police report number so a copy of the police report can be ordered.

    Mesquite Accident Reports: You can get a copy of your police accident report from the Mesquite Police Department here: Mesquite Police Accident Reports

    Texas DOT Accident Reports: Another place to locate accident reports is through the Texas Department of Transportation. If it has been 2-3 weeks or longer since your accident, the report is likely on this database as well: Texas Department of Transportation Accident Reports

  7. If ambulance personnel check you out and determine you need to go to the hospital, then you should go and get yourself examined. If you have symptoms that ambulance personnel believes warrant a trip to the emergency room then you need to go to the ER to make sure you do not have any life-threatening injuries.

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.
