TYPES OF CASES WE TAKE


1) Injured in an Auto Accident: We represent people injured in motor vehicle accidents. Our clients are those who were injured by the negligence of another person who caused the injury (see: Injured in an Auto Accident). Car Accidents: The Law Office of Doug Goyen's Dallas- Fort Worth auto accident attorneys represent people who have been injured in a car accident. Your Dallas car accident lawyer at the Law Office of Doug Goyen takes care of your claim and ensures you recover the maximum amount of insurance coverage, from all the different insurance coverages, that your claim can receive. Typically collisions of vehicles are not "accidents". They are usually the result of careless conduct, where the person knows what they are doing is careless. Acting without using proper care (careless behavior) is not "accidental" behavior, it is intentional behavior - and that intentional behavior that leads to the accident is why you are able to recover from that person. If a person intentionally decides to speed, or to try to beat a red light, or to text on your phone, or to drive when intoxicated or too tired, or to put on makeup while driving, or to mess with presets on their radio while driving in traffic, or to change lanes suddenly without checking to ensure the way is clear, etc, etc. These are not "accidents" that lead to these collisions as most people think of accidents. These are careless behaviors that are preventable that cause these injury collisions or injury "accidents". This is why our law allows you to recover from negligent drivers who cause injury or damage. They usually do not intend to hurt anyone, or damage anyone's property, but they take the risk of doing so by participating in behavior that everyone knows will lead you to having an accident eventually - distracted driving, speeding, disregarding traffic devices, not paying proper attention to their surroundings, drunk driving, etc.

In most cases, a car accident injury is due to avoidable careless or negligent behavior, not accidental behavior.
