WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS IN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
A personal injury case’s value is determined by several factors, including the severity of the injury, liability issues, and the ability to collect against a defendant.
The severity of the injury is the first thing to consider. Because of the severity of the injury, a more serious injury usually necessitates more compensation. The medical bills, future treatment needed, loss of earnings, physical impairment, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and other possible damages caused are all considered.
The next factor to consider is liability. If the defendant is entirely to blame, you should be able to attribute 100 percent of your damages to the defendant who caused them. If a jury decides that the injured person was partially to blame for the accident, the amount that person can recover will be reduced by whatever percentage the jury assigns to the injured party. So, if your case is worth $100,000, but a jury believes you were 30 percent at fault due to speeding or some other improper action, the amount you can recover will be reduced by the judge after the jury returns its verdict by that 30 percent. If you are 51 percent or more at fault, you cannot recover anything from the other person. When negotiating claims with insurance companies, they will investigate the facts of the accident, and if there are facts that allow it, they will reduce the amount they offer based on whether or not they believe you were partially to blame.
The ability to collect from a Defendant is another important factor to consider when determining the value of your case. If the person who caused your injury is indigent, has no insurance, no property, and no money you might not be able to collect from that person. Even if your injury is worth $1,000,000 or more, if you are unable to collect from them, the actual value of your case is greatly reduced. If you can’t collect, it’s not worth the paper it’s written on, as they say.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen gathers the evidence required to prove your damages, establish liability in your case, and locate any insurance or other assets that may be available to cover your claims. We have a long history of defending our clients’ rights and ensuring they receive fair compensation for their injuries.

WHY DO YOU NEED A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN DALLAS FOR INJURY CLAIMS?
A personal injury lawyer is required if you are pursuing a personal injury claim. Personal injury cases involve a wide range of legal issues. Tort law and contract law are two of the most important areas of law in personal injury cases. Working knowledge in these areas of law is critical to ensuring that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. Our experience, expertise, and drive to achieve the best possible results assist our clients in obtaining proven top results in personal injury cases.
In proving liability and damages, the injury claim is governed by tort law. The Law Office of Doug Goyen is well-versed in the various types of claims that are legally available to you. We can legally prove claims in ways that persuade Defendants and their insurance companies that our clients pose a legal and financial risk if their claims are not properly handled.
In personal injury cases, knowledge of contract law is required because dealing with insurance policies necessitates an understanding of contract law – specifically, how insurance policies are interpreted under those areas of the law.
The most common insurance policies used in personal injury cases are liability insurance policies (which cover negligence for vehicles, homeowners, or businesses), health insurance policies (which may have paid for medical bills and will seek reimbursement from your injury claim), claims for first-party insurance coverage such as collision coverage, and uninsured or underinsured motor vehicle coverage.
In addition to his 23 years of experience handling personal injury claims against insurance companies, Attorney Doug Goyen worked for insurance companies as a bodily injury claims adjuster from 1989 to 1997. Attorney Goyen has experience on both sides of personal injury claims and understands what is required for his clients to obtain the best possible results.

HOW MUCH WILL A DALLAS PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER COST?
There is no fee unless and until you win! In injury cases, personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. There is no need to pay anything up front. The lawyer is only paid if they are successful in your case. The Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.04(d) Fees, defines a contingency fee as a “fee contingent on the outcome of the matter for which the service is rendered.” This means the attorney cannot collect the fee unless a certain result is obtained. In personal injury cases this means that if the lawyer is unable to recover any money in your case, the lawyer is not paid.
Personal injury attorneys charge a percentage of the amount recovered for your claims. In practice, this transforms into a performance-based contract. The better your attorney performs in your case, the more money they make. This aligns your lawyer’s interests with yours in personal injury cases. In Texas, a contingency fee is determined by the lawyer you hire (some charge a higher percentage), but it is typically 1/3 of the amount recovered for your injury case and can rise to 40% if a lawsuit is required.
