If you suffered injuries in an Arizona car accident due to another person’s wrongful actions, you may be entitled to financial recovery for the harm and losses you endured. However, while it is possible to represent yourself following such an accident, hiring an experienced Arizona car accident attorney may be a better option, especially if you want to secure maximum damages.
Attorneys Know What Evidence To Obtain
Arizona has a fault-based insurance system. This means that if you were in a car crash due to another individual’s reckless or negligent actions, they will be responsible for paying for your injuries and losses. Unfortunately, getting the other party to fess up and admit liability is not always easy. Many times, you will need to present evidence that can clearly show the other party was at fault for the accident and the injuries you sustained. However, following a crash, the last thing you want to worry about is getting witness testimony to prove your legal claim.
Fortunately, with an experienced Arizona car accident attorney fighting for your rights, you will not have to find this evidence alone. Rather, these skilled legal professionals can promptly get to work, investigating your accident and gathering evidence to show what happened and who was at fault, including photos and videos of:
- The cars involved in the accident
- The cars’ placement on the road
- The damage to the vehicles
- Skid marks on the street, potholes, or other defects on the road
- Traffic signs or signals nearby
In addition, these lawyers can find a witness who saw the accident and get their testimony which can help collaborate your legal claim.
Attorneys Know the Laws
People often do not realize that time is not on their side when it comes to filing a lawsuit after a car crash. According to Arizona’s statute of limitation laws, individuals will only have two years from the date of the collision to pursue legal action. If they fail to file their suit by this time, the court can stop them from getting the money they need.
However, experienced car accident attorneys not only know these laws, but they can calculate these deadlines for you and ensure all the appropriate motions and legal files are prepared and submitted by this deadline.
Attorneys Can Help You Maximize Damages
While it may seem like great news when the insurance company offers you a check after an accident, you should first consider whether this is enough money before you accept this amount. Insurance companies are known for their deceitful practices and for trying to downplay injuries or provide lower settlement amounts. They do this because the less they pay out on a claim, the more profit they make.
As a result, when insurance companies realize that you are representing yourself following a car accident, they know that they have a better chance of you accepting their lowball offer. However, when you let a car accident attorney handle your case, these lawyers can not only assess all your injuries, including your financial and emotional losses, but they can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, going after all the money you need. If the insurance company refuses to budge on the offer, your attorney can take your case to court and fight for every last dollar you are entitled to.
