If you have suffered an injury that was the result of an accident, the Doan Law Firm of Harlingen and McAllen 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 ourselves to representing clients who have been injured due to the carelessness, recklessness, or negligence of others. In our practice we have represented clients whose injuries ranged from minor, where the accident victim made a complete recovery to their pre-accident health, to those who 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 unfortunate cases the survival of such accident victims is often only clearly established after weeks or months of specialized (and expensive) medical, surgical, and nursing care.
Although the following section offers only a general overview of the types of cases that we will represent, more specific information is available by clicking the “Personal Injury” link at the top of this web page, by calling us at (956) 415-0000, or via our “Contact Us” message form located on this page.
- Defective products
If you purchase a product, you 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 product lawsuit. Note that many defective product lawsuits involve prescription medications and implanted surgical devices such as artificial joints or “hardware” used in various surgical operations.
- Public entertainment accidents
It is a fundamental premise of law that anyone operating a public entertainment facility 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 that entertainment venue may be liable for damages that must be paid to the injured party.
- Private vehicle accident injuries
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 in order to use that vehicle.
- Public transportation accidents
In contrast to the above, public transportation is considered to be 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
- Employment-related injuries
Although the State of Texas has a relatively “generous” Worker’s Compensation program, it is far from being an ideal system. In some situations involving on-the-job injuries it will 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.
- Deliberate intent to cause harm injuries
Many people are unaware that the law holds anyone who commits a criminal act that causes an injury to another, or deliberately causes an injury that could have been avoided, can be sued in civil court regardless of the status of any criminal charges.
- Wrongful death
Under Texas law, a death that is attributed to anything other than “natural causes” or to “acts of God” may, depending on the circumstances, be ruled a wrongful death. Such deaths, because they cause great disruptions in family and community life, usually result in large damage awards.
