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.

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.

MESQUITE CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST FOR ACCIDENTS
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) At the scene of the accident you need to:
a) 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.
b) Call 911 and report the accident. Let them know there are injuries if you or anyone else is hurt.
c) 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.
d) 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.
e) 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.
f) 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
g) 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.
If you decide to drive yourself or have someone else drive you to the emergency room, the following emergency rooms are located in the Mesquite area:

2) After you leave the scene of the accident you should:
a) If you were injured in the accident you need to follow up with a medical facility. Make an appointment to get checked out. If you do not know what doctor to see, or if you are worried about how you will pay for the medical treatment, you need to contact a lawyer. The Law Office of Doug Goyen can help you find a medical facility that will see you for your injuries and can issue a letter of protection to the medical facility so they will defer billing you for your treatment until the auto insurance involved issues payment for your injury.
b) Do not speak to the insurance company if you were injured in your auto accident. The insurance adjuster’s job is to try and keep payments as small as possible. If they can avoid paying a claim they will do so. They are looking for you to say something that they can use against you.
c) Get your own estimate for the damage to your vehicle. Body shops typically will do a free estimate for someone involved in an auto accident. They want your business.
