Case:  Shopper falls over pallets left in aisle at office supply company. 

(The store left pallets in the shopping aisle. Our client tripped over the pallets as he was looking up at product on the shelves. Investigation of the scene showed the placement of the pallets in the aisle became a dangerous condition that caused our client’s injury).  

Our client (a man in his 70s with his wife) was shopping at an office supply company. The workers at the company had been stocking the shelves and left empty pallets and boxes in the middle of the shopping aisles.  My client was looking up at product that was placed above head level.  As he was looking for the product he needed he stepped backwards to get a better look.  When he stepped back he caught his foot on the almost empty pallet that was on the floor and fell, causing serious injury to his hip.  

The office supply company had told my client that they were not responsible as he should have been watching where he was going.  We investigated the location, the design of the aisles, the placement of the product on the shelves, and the location of the pallet on the floor and were able to show that the way they had designed the aisle and the placement of the product would force any customer to look up and then back up to get a better view of the product up high.  Their placing the pallets on the floor and leaving them unattended was a dangerous condition when combined with the design of the aisle.  The office supply company settled that case in the six figure range.

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.
