Personal Injury FAQs

Phoenix | Tucson | español

We understand that being injured in an accident that could have been prevented can be a terrifying ordeal. Dealing with the legal aspects afterward can feel overwhelming. You likely have numerous questions about your rights and what to expect from the personal injury claim process. While we urge you to reach out for a personalized free case review, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions our Phoenix personal injury lawyers often hear from clients. 

Q: What is personal injury law and what types of cases do you handle?
A: Personal injury law seeks legal recourse when someone has been harmed or injured due to another person’s negligence or recklessness. In Arizona, these laws offer protection to individuals who have suffered injuries or losses in various situations, such as car accidents, slip and falls, or medical malpractice. Our firm handles a wide range of personal injury cases, ensuring that those who have been wronged can seek justice and receive compensation for their damages.

Q: What is negligence?
A: Negligence, in legal terms, refers to the failure to exercise reasonable care or caution, resulting in harm or injury to another person. For instance, if someone causes an accident because they were texting while driving, their actions would be considered negligent as texting is reckless. This negligence makes the responsible party liable for the resulting damages and obligated to compensate the victim for their losses.

Q: If I have been injured, what types of damages can I recover?
A: If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to various damages to compensate for your losses. These can include compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages due to missed work, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and any other financial hardships incurred due to the injury.

Q: How long must I file a personal injury or accident claim?
A: In Arizona, a statute of limitations dictates the time frame within which you must file a personal injury lawsuit. Typically, you have two years from the date of the injury to initiate legal action. Failing to file within this time frame may result in losing your right to seek compensation for your damages.

Q: How much is my case worth?
A: The value of your case depends on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, the extent of your damages, and the degree of fault of the responsible party. Additionally, the specific circumstances surrounding your accident will play a significant role in determining the potential compensation. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney can help you assess the worth of your case and understand your legal options for pursuing compensation.

Q: How much do you charge for your services?
A: Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you only pay attorney’s fees if we successfully recover compensation for your case. There are no upfront costs, and our fees are contingent upon securing a favorable outcome for you. This allows us to provide legal representation to those in need without adding financial strain during an already challenging time.
