Even though you try to avoid accidents, you can be injured because another person wasn’t watching out for your safety. Whether it was a slip-and-fall, a car accident, a medical injury, a product injury, or some other type of accident, you deserve monetary compensation for the injuries and damages someone else has forced upon you.

Filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit in Phoenix is not something the average person can do on their own. There are complex laws that can affect your case, as well as difficult negotiations and paperwork you will have to complete. You must also accurately calculate your losses, investigate the accident, and collect evidence to prove negligence.

You deserve to have the help of a dedicated, meticulous legal professional who can guide you through every step of the Phoenix personal injury claim process. You should be able to focus on recovering from your injuries and getting back to work. That’s why it’s important for you to reach out to a Phoenix injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Michael Cordova.

Don’t delay in calling a lawyer at our office. Most Arizona injury cases require you to submit your claim within two years of the date of your accident. Failure to submit your claim within this time frame will prevent you and your family from receiving the compensation you’re owed.

Why You Can File a Claim When Someone Else Has Harmed You

The reason you are able to file a personal injury claim when you’ve been hurt in an accident you didn’t cause is because of Arizona’s negligence laws. The idea is that if someone else’s actions were responsible for causing you to be injured, they should be required to compensate you for what you went through. This law goes for unintentional injuries,
as well.

For instance, if you are walking down the grocery store aisle and you slipped on a spill a worker left on the floor, the store worker who left the spill on the floor and the company should be held responsible. They likely didn’t leave the spill there with the intention of causing you harm, but they were still responsible for your injuries.

Who Pays Out on Personal Injury Claims?

When someone has injured you, you deserve to receive justice and compensation for what you have been through. Unfortunately, negligent people don’t always have the money to pay for your injuries and losses, even if they should be paying. Insurance was created as a way to protect injury victims financially when careless people cause you to be hurt.

Property owners, vehicle drivers, businesses, and even the government usually have insurance policies so that when injuries and accidents do occur, the victims can receive monetary compensation. When you’ve been injured, it’s likely the at-fault party’s insurer that will be paying your settlement.

Winning the Settlement You Need for Your Accident

One of the questions our firm often receives: What types of losses are included in an injury claim? You already know how much an accident and possible injuries can affect a life, because it’s already happening to you.

You might be dealing with hospital bills, other medical expenses, lost income, and other financial losses. You are likely also struggling through the pain of your injuries and emotional and mental trauma caused by the accident, and you could be facing permanent injury or disfiguring scars. You can add all losses that this accident has caused you to suffer to your personal injury claim.

Phoenix Personal Injury FAQ

Many people have questions when they begin looking into filing an injury claim in Phoenix. When you contact our firm directly, you can receive case-specific answers during a free initial evaluation. However, to get a general idea of how the personal injury claim process works, here are a few common questions our law firm receives.

How long do I have to submit a personal injury claim in Arizona?

For most types of personal injury cases in Arizona, you are given two years to file your claim. The clock starts the day of your accident. You don’t want to wait, though, because two years flies by a lot faster than many people think. In addition, the faster you file your claim, the better chance you have that witnesses won’t disappear or evidence
won’t get lost.

What are economic and non-economic damages?

All the monetary losses you’ve suffered as a result of your accident are often referred to as economic damages. These damages include things like medical bills, lost wages, costs of caregiving services, and property loss. Non-economic damages refer to any negative effect of your accident not tied to financial loss. For instance, pain and suffering are non-economic damages.

Is it really necessary for me to work with a lawyer?

Some claims can be filed without legal assistance, but it’s not usually a good idea. Your lawyer offers you invaluable legal know-how and experience. Working with a lawyer allows you to receive a settlement while your focus remains on what matters most—your health.

What if I don’t have the money to pay a lawyer?

A lot of injury victims try to file claims on their own because they think they can’t afford an attorney. You should know that our firm is happy to work out a contingency fee arrangement with you. This is when your lawyer only gets paid for their services after they’ve won you the full settlement you deserve.

You have every right to be upset when you’ve been injured because another person didn’t take your safety seriously. Unfortunately, the only way to receive justice and financial compensation for what you’ve been through is through the personal injury claim process. Filing a case may seem intimidating, but that’s where your lawyer can help.
