If you have suffered an injury that was the result of an accident, the Doan Law Firm of Bryan and College Station is ready to help you win the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
Types of Cases We Represent
At the Doan Law Firm, we limit our law practice to representing clients who suffered an injury due to the carelessness or negligence of others. In our law practice, we have represented clients whose injuries ranged from the relatively uncomplicated, those injuries where the accident victim made a complete recovery to their pre-accident health, to those whose injuries required months of specialized care.
Our practice also represents those accident victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries to their brain or spinal cord. In these tragic cases, the survival of the accident victim is often only clearly established after weeks or months of specialized (and expensive) medical, surgical, and nursing care.
The following section offers only an overview of the types of cases that we will represent. More detailed information is available by clicking the “Personal Injury” link at the top of this page, by calling us at (979) 803-0000, or via our “Contact Us” form located on this page.
- Injuries due to defective and/or dangerous products
When you purchase a consumer product, you have the right to expect that product will “perform as advertised.” If this is not the case, and that product causes you to suffer an injury, you may have grounds for a defective or dangerous product lawsuit. Note that many defective product lawsuits have involved prescription medications and implanted surgical devices such as artificial joints or “hardware” used in various surgical operations.
- Public facility or public entertainment accidents
It is a fundamental premise of law that anyone operating a public facility, whether for entertainment, retail shopping purposes, or any other purpose has the legal duty to take every reasonable precaution to protect visitors to that facility from suffering an injury. If a visitor or patron suffers an injury, and that injury could have been prevented, the owner of the facility may be liable for damages that must be paid to the injured party.
- Private transportation accidents
Private accident injuries are those accidental injuries involving personal or private transportation such as an individual’s personal automobile, motorcycle, or even private boats. The designation “private” is used to describe ownership by an individual who does not charge a fee of some type as a condition of use of that vehicle.
- Public transportation accidents
Unlike private transportation, public transportation is any method of transportation offered to the public for a fixed price or a per-mile fare. In the past, public transportation has meant city buses, commuter trains, taxi cabs, or privately-operated tour buses and limousines. In recent years, this definition has been expanded to include “ride-sharing” or “on-call” transportation services such as Lyft and Uber. Even “courtesy” transportation that is routinely provided by hotels and casinos is considered by law to be “public” transportation.
- Employment-related injuries
Although the State of Texas has always had a “generous” Worker’s Compensation program, it is far from being a perfect system. In some types of on-the-job injuries, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to be certain a worker injured while at work will receive all the compensation to which he or she is entitled.
- Injuries sustained by victims of violent crimes
Many people are unaware that Texas law holds that anyone who causes an injury to another while committing a criminal act, or deliberately causes an injury that could have been avoided, can be sued in civil court regardless of the status of any criminal charges. In fact, Texas law allows the victim of such injuries to argue that the person responsible for the injury was deliberately negligent simply because the injury occurred during a criminal act!
- Wrongful death
Under Texas law, a wrongful death is defined to be any death that is officially attributed to anything other than “natural causes” or to “acts of God.” Wrongful deaths, because they cause such substantial disruptions in the victim’s survivors’ family life, may result in large damage awards to those survivors.
