Damage to rear of vehicle Drivers of motor vehicles have a responsibility to keep a safe distance between themselves and other vehicles. The reality in Plano is that many drivers do not follow this simple rule, resulting in serious accidents on our roads. A driver who collides with the vehicle in front of them is generally assumed to be at fault for the accident because they failed to maintain a safe driving distance between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them.

A variety of negligent acts can result in rear end collisions. The following are the most common causes of rear end collisions:

  • Distracted driving such as cell phone use, texting or other internal car distractions
  • Following too closely or tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Multiple car accidents with chain reactions
  • Reckless driving and road rage
  • Vehicles stopping due to traffic or red lights
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving while intoxicated

Causes of a rear end collision accident are well-known. To ensure a successful recovery, an attorney must understand the applicable law and be able to demonstrate that the offending motor vehicle failed to act reasonably under the circumstances, which caused the accident.

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.
