The Texas Department of Transportation reports were 36,862 car crashes in the City of Dallas in 2019 and Dallas County had 55,346 reported accidents. The increase in accidents in recent years is due largely to distracted drivers. Drivers divide their attention between looking at their phones and driving. With the increased number of accidents comes an increased number of people injured.
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.

OAK CLIFF ACCIDENT LAWYER CHECKLIST
If you have been injured in a car accident there are several things you need to do. The following is a checklist to help guide you after you have been involved in an auto accident with injuries:
1) At the scene of the accident you need to:
a) Check yourself for injuries immediately after the accident. The shock of an unexpected accident can cause your adrenaline to pump and often people are unaware of their injuries at first. Check yourself to make sure how severe your injuries are. Next, you need to check on your passengers to see if they are ok. Check on the occupants in the other vehicles to see if they need help, they may have injuries and need assistance. If anyone is hurt then get help immediately.
b) Call 911. If you are injured, or if anyone is injured, you need to have the police and emergency services come to the scene to assist.
c) Get witness information. If there are any witnesses to the accident get their contact information immediately. Witnesses who are not actually involved in the accident might not stick around, so get their contact information as soon as possible.
d) Exchange information with the other drivers. Texas requires that all drivers in auto accidents exchange identification and auto liability insurance, regardless of who is at fault. Everyone exchanges information. Take cellphone photos of the ID and auto insurance information so you can have them for your records.
e) Take photos of the damage to all of the vehicles involved in the accident. If you are too injured to do this yourself you need to call a friend or family member to the scene so they can do this for you. Get photos of any skid marks and debris left from the accident. Get photos of the roadway and traffic and the direction you were coming from and traveling to just prior to the accident. Get photos of the roadway where the other drivers were coming from and heading to. Again, do not forget to get photos of the damage to all the vehicles as well.
f) Cooperate with the police when they arrive. They will interview each driver separately regarding what happened in the accident. You want to let the officer know what happened so your version of the accident is in the police crash report. If you are injured let the officer know.
g) If emergency personnel advise that you need to go to the hospital for your injuries you should follow their advice. They are trained to look for symptoms from trauma in auto accidents that may be life-threatening. It is better to be safe than sorry. If advised that you should go to the ER then go get checked out.
2) After you leave the scene of the accident:
a) If you are injured in the accident you need to make an appointment with a medical facility to follow up on your injury. If you do not know where to go, or if you cannot afford the costs of going to a medical facility we can help. The Law Office of Doug Goyen can help you find a medical facility that will treat you for your injuries. We can issue a letter of protection to that medical facility that guarantees they will be paid out of the auto insurance once they issue payment for your injury.
b) Do not speak to the insurance company about your auto accident. If you are injured then the insurance adjuster will be looking for ways to avoid paying or pay as little as possible on your claim. Anything you say to them will be used by them to attempt to place some of the blame on you or get out of paying the claim in some other way. Hire a personal injury lawyer that handles car accidents to talk to the insurance company on your behalf so nothing is said that may compromise your claim.
c) Do your research on the personal injury lawyer you hire. We all give free consultations, so the consultation costs you nothing. If a law office will not let you speak to the actual attorney, do not go with that law office. You need to speak to the attorney to get a feel for them, see if they are helpful, see if they listen to you and want to know what your concerns are, and get a feel for whether they actually know what they are talking about and will take care of you for your auto accident and personal injury case. You need to be comfortable with and have confidence in the attorney you hire.

OAK CLIFF NEIGHBORHOODS OF DALLAS, TEXAS
The Oak Cliff neighborhoods compose a large section of Dallas and are some of the oldest and most historic parts of the City of Dallas. Oak Cliff was originally settled in 1837 by William H. Hord and was originally called Hord’s Ridge. The area was transformed into residential neighborhoods in the 1880s and 1890s and the name was changed to Oak Cliff due to the beautiful hills and the oak trees in the area that still mark the landscape today. There are four sections of Oak Cliff – North Oak Cliff, East Oak Cliff, Southeast Oak Cliff, and Central Oak Cliff.
North Oak Cliff has the Bishop Arts District, Kessler Park, Winnetka Heights, and the Texas Theatre (where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy). There is also the redesigned golf course Stevens Park Golf Course, and Kidd Springs Park for outdoor activities.
East Oak Cliff is home to the Lancaster Urban Village and the Dallas Zoo. It is home to prestigious high schools – The School for the Talented and Gifted and the School of Science and Engineering Magnet at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center.
