Personal Injury Lawyers in Phoenix
Following the shock and trauma of an injury, many people become so preoccupied with health concerns that the crucial task of fighting for compensation gets pushed to the side. Insurance companies dedicate no small amount of time and effort to the denial of claims for health care and other costs associated with your recovery. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the negligence of another party, the help of a personal injury lawyer and the threat of a lawsuit may be an effective means to ensure justice.
In the state of Arizona, a personal injury lawsuit covers a range of injuries such as crashes, slips, medical malpractice, hazardous property conditions, dog attacks, and other incidents. Victims of negligence have the right to bring suit against the at-fault party or, more likely, his or her insurer to recover for their losses.
If you or a family member has been injured by the careless acts of a negligent party, a consultation with an Arizona personal injury attorney is the first step to understanding your legal rights. A personal injury attorney from Zinda Law Group can help you by taking on the complex task of investigating the circumstances of the incident, filing with the court, requesting applicable medical or law enforcement records, and communicating with the other the other parties. In the meantime, you can focus on you or your loved one’s recovery, such as finishing physical therapy or simply resuming your life again.
The majority of personal injury suits in Arizona result in settlement before trial. This is because the mere threat of a lawsuit often produces settlement negotiations. Citizens of Arizona who file personal injury lawsuits may be entitled to two forms of damages compensation. The first type of are compensatory damages, such as the costs of medical treatment, loss of or damage to property, time spent missing work, and enduring pain and suffering. These damages are often easy to quantify, because they are supported by documentation such as medical bills or appraisals. The second classification of damages is punitive damages. These serve to punish a party for their negligence and disregard toward the victim. Punitive damages generally apply to acts of criminal recklessness or simply when a bad actor ignores the public good. Thus, when an insured party injures somebody by running a stop sign, texting while driving, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the threat of trial is a serious matter. Although these are means of recovery that owed to you by the law, the reality is that convincing an insurance company to compensate you is extremely difficult without the aid of an experienced personal injury attorney.
Be aware of a legal concept known at the Statute of Limitations. This means that you have a limited time from the date of the incident to file suit against an at-fault party. The clock is indeed ticking.
