Galveston Personal Injury Attorneys
Local (409) 206-0000
The coastal city of Galveston is one of the most popular in Texas. With
a community of just under 50,000 residents, it serves as the seat of Galveston
County and one of the centers of tourism in the Longhorn State.
Thanks to harsh weather that can come from its island geography combined
with a high number of drivers from outside the state, residents must be
careful about automotive accidents. If you get hit, you may have a personal
injury case to take to court.
Galveston is the site of frequent accidents, including truck, car and
motorcycle accidents resulting in serious injury. Bicycle and boating
accidents are also not unheard of. Accidents are more likely at night
and in bad weather. With plenty of rainfall in autumn and winter, locals
could be in a personal injury situation at any time. If you are in an
accident, it’s imperative to contact an attorney right away.
Personal injury can also include slip and fall, wrongful death, worker’s
compensation claims and many other situations. Any of these can strike
unexpectedly and may have life-altering consequences.
The Doan Law Firm Makes it Easy to Take Your Personal Injury Case to Court
The definition of a personal injury case is fairly simple, both in Galveston
and across Texas. Any time you have been injured as the result of another
person’s negligence, you may have a case. “Injury” is
understood as an adverse impact on you causing “damages,”
such as medical bills, lost wages, repair costs for your vehicle and so on.
No matter whether you’re in an accident involving Galveston locals
or visitors from outside the city or state, the basic facts remain the
same. You should speak to an attorney as soon as possible, then take steps
to clarify the extent of the damages. This can include seeing a physician
or other preventative measures.
The Doan Law Firm makes it easy to get the process started:
We Provide a Free, Zero-Obligation Consultation
In the vast majority of situations, there is a solid personal injury case
and it’s up to the victim to go forward or not. Deciding how to
proceed requires legal advice from an expert who understands the facts.
At The Doan Law Firm, we’ll be glad to discuss the details of your
case with you. No matter if you select our firm or not, we want you to
proceed with complete clarity and confidence.
We Only Receive Money If You Do
If you are expected to pay right away, what incentive does your attorney
have to do the best job possible? The Doan Law Firm takes personal injury
cases on a contingency basis only. This means we receive money as a small
percentage of the damages awarded to you by a court. If you do not receive
damages, we do not get paid. It is as simple as that.
We Help You Through Every Aspect of Your Case
A court case is complicated enough as it is, but there are many aspects
to it that a first-time legal consumer may not know about. The Doan Law
Firm will guide you in every step. We handle all communication with the
court and other parties in the case, help you ensure you have the facts
you need for any court appearances and even investigate the accident scene
A Quick Word on Personal Injury Settlements in Galveston
Many times, announcing your intention to go to court results in a settlement
offer from the other party. This is particularly the case if you are dealing
with a large business that has been negligent in causing your injury and
wants to avoid any media scrutiny. An offer can be very tempting to personal
Unfortunately, many of these offers represent only a fraction of what
you could receive if you go to court. At The Doan Law Firm, we understand
this. Our experience positions us to take your case “all the way”
and to fight for every penny you may be entitled to.
If you’ve been injured on the job, on the road or in a slip and
fall, you may not make a full recovery. If you do, it could be months
or years before an injury has no effect on your daily functioning. When
seeking damages, we take this into account.
Personal injury cases vary greatly in how long they may take to resolve.
Some cases take months and others require years of work. Rarely, a fair
settlement offer accelerates the process. Whatever the case, The Doan
Law Firm will work for you around the clock.
