Were you involved in a car accident and have questions about whether you should contact a car accident attorney? Watch this video to find out how our Phoenix injury lawyers can help protect your rights.
Most of our clients have contacted us immediately following the accident. We get called right away. Some of them have called us while they’re still standing by their car right after the accident occurred asking us what they should do. That’s not always the case. If you’re ever seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, maybe you’re unconscious, maybe you’re transported to the hospital. My recommendation to you would be to call an attorney as soon as you’re able to. You want to make sure that you call an attorney right away so that they can make sure that you don’t do something that could harm your case.
For example, insurance companies, immediately following an accident, are going to call you. They’re going to try to get statements. That can hurt your case, but then also after the accident, there are certain things that you can use as evidence that can help preserve your case like for example, taking pictures of the vehicles, where the cars are positioned, and pictures of the damage to the vehicles. All those things can really help us when we’re trying to establish liability. I would recommend contacting an attorney as soon as you possibly can after a motor vehicle accident.
Were you seriously injured by a drunk driver in a DUI car accident? Watch this video to learn how our Phoenix injury attorneys can fight for your full recovery.
Arizona has one of the stricter laws regarding drinking and driving in the nation. Unfortunately, that doesn’t detour everyone from engaging in that type of conduct. There are accidents caused in this state every day involving drivers who are intoxicated. In most cases, nearly all cases, the fact that the person was intoxicated is proof that the person was negligent. Therefore, it makes it a little bit easier for us to recover from that person or from that person’s insurance if they are responsible for that accident. It’s essentially proof that they were negligent. It makes it a lot easier. If you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident involving somebody that was intoxicated, please contact us so that we can help you.
Not sure what steps to take after a car accident? Our Phoenix injury lawyer explain what to do after a car accident to ensure your rights are protected.
For our clients that have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, our biggest concern, and it’s always going to be our biggest concern, is their health and wellbeing. That’s the number one priority. If you’re injured in a motor vehicle accident, the first thing that you want to do is make sure that you seek out proper medical treatment. Go to the hospital. Go to all of your appointments. If they recommend going to a chiropractor, go to the chiropractor. If they recommend physical therapy, go see a physical therapist. Our concern should not be with how long it is going to take to recover money for you or how long it’s going to take for us to get paid. That’s not our biggest issue. Our biggest concern is your health. We will ultimately recover for you, but we want to make sure that you take care of yourself first.
How long will it take for you to be compensated for your accident? Our Phoenix accident lawyers discuss the typical injury settlement timeline in Arizona.
One of the first questions we get from clients is how long this is going to take. Our clients are concerned because their car is in the shop, or that they’ve got medical bills they need to pay, or they’re getting notices about late medical bills, , those sorts of things. Those are all legitimate questions and concerns, but there is no blueprint for how long it’s going to take to process your injury case. Every case is totally different. Some of them can be resolved very quickly with settlements while others could take a very long time.
For example, our primary concern is not with how long it’s going to take to process your personal injury case but waiting until you’re healthy. We want to make sure that you get all of the treatment that you need, all the treatment that you deserve before we even seek any kind of a recovery from the insurance company. Again, our primary concern is going to be making sure that you get the treatment that you need. It’s not going to be with hurrying up and rushing through the case and trying to finish it as quick as we can. That’s not our biggest priority.
Were you injured in a car accident caused by an uninsured driver? Our Phoenix accident Lawyer discusses uninsured motorist claims and how you can still recover.
We’ve had several of our clients that have come to us that were involved in motor vehicle accidents involving drivers and even caused by drivers that did not have insurance. Complicating matters, they were drivers from out of state. That can make recovery difficult. If you’re involved in that situation, and you’re on the scene, you want to get a copy of the police report. Then we can find out what type of identification they have, where they’re from, their address, and all those things. Then we can do what we can to research the issue, and find out whether or not they have any assets that we can go after to recover on your behalf. Another important thing to remember is that you hopefully have underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. In those cases, if we need to, if the other party doesn’t have insurance, we can use your own policy to help recover for the injuries that were caused to you.
