Phoenix personal injury lawyer is experienced in helping injured victims recover the compensation they are entitled.
Suffering injury in an accident of any kind can be very traumatic to the accident victim as well as his or her family. It may lead to financial difficulties, as well as extensive emotional trauma, depression, and anxiety. At times, the injuries themselves may limit the way the victim is able to live his or her life from here on out. Personal injury law offers those who have been injured because of another's negligent conduct the opportunity to seek justice and financial compensation from the responsible party. This may be another driver who caused an auto accident, a negligent doctor who slipped and caused a serious injury, or perhaps a dog owner who did not properly control his or her dog, causing it to attack. Whatever the circumstances of the case, the victim can seek the help he or she needs from an experienced Phoenix injury attorney.
In talking to an attorney about your case and your legal options, you can find out more about what steps you can take to maximize your potential financial recovery after an accident or other related incident. This may make a significant impact on the outcome of your case as well as your ability to rebuild your life.
Responsibility in Injury Claims
Legal responsibility, or liability, is an important part of any Phoenix personal injury claim, whether this is related to a slip and fall accident, auto accident or dog bite. It will be necessary for the plaintiff (the victim) to establish the fault of the defendant (the person against whom a personal injury claim is brought). To do this, the following factors will need to be addressed:
- That the defendant had an obligation to the plaintiff, to act with a certain level of caution or to provide a standard level of care.
- That the defendant did something or failed to do something that violated this obligation.
- This action or failure to act was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's injuries.
In personal injury claims, fault is established and guilt is found based upon a preponderance (majority) of evidence. Unlike criminal cases where guilt must be proven beyond any shadow of a doubt, personal injury claims are resolved by proving that it was "more than likely" that the defendant's actions led to the plaintiff's injuries.
By establishing the fault of the defendant in a personal injury claim, an injury lawyer can help an accident or injury victim seek and recover financial compensation that will enable the victim to begin rebuilding his or her life. The penalties imposed in civil court are financial in nature. As such, the damages awarded to the victim will be intended to assist the victim in rebuilding and recovering to a similar position as to before the accident occurred. This may include money for medical care, future treatment, physical therapy, occupational therapy, lost wages from missed work, future lost earnings, and emotional injuries as well. An attorney's goal will be to assist the victim in recovering just monetary damages.
While it may be tempting to try and handle your case on your own, the emotional and legal benefits of having an experienced personal attorney fighting at your side are immeasurable. When in negotiations with insurance companies, often times your case will be denied, delayed or settled for much less than the desired value to compensate for all physical and non-physical losses incurred from the accident. Insurance companies are only concerned with their own profit and the bottom line at the end of the day. Promises they make at the beginning are often much more grand than they ever want to live up to, which leaves you hanging out to dry as soon as you're in actual need. By securing a heavyweight of a lawyer at the beginning, you are letting them know that you mean business. Often, this simple act can be enough to get them to give you the respect you deserve and allow you to reach a satisfactory settlement outside of court. If not, however, then we are prepared to do whatever it takes in pursuit of the desired results. You can be confident that we will be fighting to protect your rights and work towards your future.
