What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury attorney on our team can help you with every aspect of your case. From gathering evidence to filing a lawsuit, we will stay by your side until you get the outcome and the payment you deserve. We will start by meeting with you and reviewing all the facts of your case, including witness statements, photos and videos, and insurance company statements.
Once we have assessed your case thoroughly, our team will do the following:
- Gather evidence on your behalf. Evidence can include police reports, accident reports, witness statements, and photos of the scene.
- Negotiate with insurance companies. Sometimes, the best way to receive a payout is through an insurance company. Our team will talk to insurance agents on your behalf to see what kind of compensation they can offer you.
- Send demand letters. If the other party has an insurance company that is unwilling to negotiate, our personal injury attorneys can send a demand letter to the agency requesting damages for your injuries.
- File a lawsuit. If insurance companies are unwilling to pay you what you deserve, you may choose to file a lawsuit against the guilty parties. Our team will spend time preparing for court before filing a complaint against the liable party.
- Represent you in court. If your case goes to trial, our team will present your case before a judge using the evidence we have gathered. We are familiar with personal injury law, and we know exactly what a judge needs to see to help you win your case.
What Kind of Damages Can I Seek in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In many cases, you are eligible to receive compensation for any expenses you accrued as a direct result of the accident. Your compensation depends on the nature of your injuries and the accident.
Below are some common damages that many accident victims seek:
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages
- Emotional trauma
If the crime was particularly negligent or dangerous, you may also be able to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the liable party and discourage them from repeating their actions. For instance, if you were hit by a drunk driver, you may be able to seek punitive damages.
What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims?
The state sets a statute of limitations, after which you cannot file a lawsuit in court. Under Arizona law, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years. This means that unless you qualify for certain exceptions, you will not be able to file a personal injury lawsuit more than two years after the date of the accident.
If it takes longer than a year to realize that you were injured, you may be able to have the statute of limitations waived. For more information about the statute of limitations in Arizona, reach out to our firm today.
