The key to reaching a settlement for a fair amount of injury compensation is ensuring your claim is expertly managed throughout the entire process. An experienced accident attorney can help you at every stage – from assisting you with finding medical care and filing your claim to successfully negotiating with an insurance company for adequate compensation. An adequate settlement means enough money to cover your medical bills, lost income, damage to your vehicle, pain and suffering, and any other losses you have suffered.
Without a Phoenix personal injury lawyer experienced in auto accident claims, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will likely try to place the majority of the blame on you. Although you will be able to recover some compensation if you are at-fault, under Arizona’s comparative negligence law, the amount that you receive will be reduced by your percentage of liability. For example, if an insurer states that you are 80 percent to blame, you will only recover 20 percent of your requested compensation.
Some of the most frequently observed scenarios responsible for crashes in Arizona include:
No two accidents are the same, but the outcomes can produce catastrophic harm. Victims often suffer serious injuries, such as severe bone fractures, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, loss of limbs, and chronic pain.
After a car accident in Arizona, insurance companies require you to make a claim or give notice within a reasonable amount of time (a few days) of the collision. Whereas, an injury lawsuit stemming from a car accident will fall under the category of personal injury law. The state sets a strict two-year deadline on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit and claim compensation. If that claim is against a city, county, or the state, you would then have only 180 days to file a formal claim and one year to file suit. Don’t wait to file a claim – preserve your right to fair compensation by speaking with a skilled Phoenix car accident lawyer at our law firm.
