With the recent uptick in both the national and regional economies, the Greater Tallahassee Area has seen a surge in new residential and commercial building activity as well as an increase in local and regional recreational and commercial traffic. Unfortunately, this same increase in economic-related activities has also lead to an increase in the number accidental injuries involving both Tallahassee residents and visitors to the North Central and Florida Panhandle areas.
Regardless of where you live or work, if you are a resident or a visitor, the Doan Law Firm is ready to act as your personal legal representative in your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in order that you receive the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and other losses.
Our Practice Areas
The Doan Law Firm limits its law practice to the representation of clients who have suffered accidental injuries due to the carelessness or the negligence of another. Our clients’ injuries may range from the relatively minor, in which the client makes a full recovery within a matter of few days or weeks, to those injuries that require several months or more or medical care before the client can return to work or to school.
We also represent accident victims who have suffered catastrophic, life-threatening, injuries such as trauma to the brain or spinal cord. In many such cases the victim’s survival may remain in doubt for weeks or even month and the victims will never return to the former states of health.
Lastly, we will represent the families of the most tragic of accident victims: those that did not survive their injuries, even after weeks or months of the best medical care available. Perhaps even more tragic is the fact that the cost of a day’s care in an Intensive Care Unit can easily exceed $10,000 per day or even more if physicians’ fees and other hospital charges are included.
Types of Injury Cases We Represent
Although it is impossible to explain the depth of our separate practice areas on a single page, the following short definitions will serve as an outline of the types of cases the Doan Law Firm will handle for our clients. More detailed information on each category listed here can be found under the “Personal Injury” and “Insurance Claims” tabs of this page’s menu ribbon located at the top of this page.
Private transportation accident injury
Broadly speaking, private transportation means transportation that is not offered to the public for a fee such as a fare or a ticket. Private transportation includes personal vehicles such as cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
Public transportation accident injury
Public transportation is any form of transportation that is offered to the public in exchange for the price of a ticket or a per-mile fare. This includes public transportation by city bus, commuter train, taxi cab, airline, or privately-operated tour buses and limousines.
Employment-related accident injury
Although each state has its own Workers Compensation system to aid those injured on-the-job, it is sometimes necessary to file a lawsuit to adequately pay for the other costs of an injury such as rehabilitation and supplemental income for lost wages.
Injury due to defective consumer products
When we purchase a product, we have an expectation that the product will not cause us harm when we attempt to use it. If this is not the case, it may become necessary to file a defective product lawsuit.
Amusement parks, theme parks, and other public entertainment venue accidents
Florida is famous for its sheer number of public entertainment facilities. Since many of these parks also include numerous rides that subject a patron to violent motion and changes in direction, it is not surprising that serious amusement and theme park accident injuries occur on almost a daily basis.
Criminal acts and deliberate intent to cause harm
Most people are unaware that anyone who commits a criminal act causing a physical injury to another, or deliberately causes an injury that could to another that could have been avoided, can be sued in court in addition to any criminal charges that may be prosecuted.
Any death that is due to anything other than “natural causes” or to “acts of God” may be ruled a wrongful death. Wrongful death, since it causes the greatest disruption to family and community life, usually results in a substantial award to the victim’s family.
