ANSWER:

Personal Injury is an area of law for people who have been injured in an accident. It is a tort, or a civil case that will result in a money judgment, not jail time. The most common type of personal injury claim is a car accident, but you can also bring a personal injury claim after a dog bite, slip and fall, and other types of accidents.

ANSWER:

There are many types of costs that can be included in your personal injury settlement. These include medical costs, time off work, alternative transportation, future medical costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. You should contact an attorney to help you determine the value of intangible costs like pain and suffering and emotional distress. You may need to hire expert witnesses to predict what your future medical costs and other expenses will be.

ANSWER:

Once you have sought medical treatment for your injuries, you should contact a Tempe Injury Attorney as soon as possible after being in an accident. Witnesses’ memories will fade, and evidence could be damaged or lost, so it is best to get an attorney involved early on. This will also prevent you from making statements that could damage your case to the opposing party.

Tempe Injury Lawyers are paid on a contingency basis, meaning they don’t get paid if they lose your case. Your attorney must secure a settlement agreement or a verdict in your favor to be paid.

ANSWER:

The Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury claim in Arizona is 2 years from the date of injury. Your case will be dismissed if you fail to file it within that deadline. There is an exception for accident victims who were under the age of 18 at the time of the injury. If the child’s parent or guardian doesn’t bring a claim on their behalf before they reach adulthood, the child will have 2 years to bring their claim once they turn 18.

Assist with Medical Treatment

After an accident, you may need to establish medical liens to be treated by your doctors. This allows you to be treated without paying out of pocket, and the doctors will receive payment from your award. You may need to see more than one type of doctor, who will need to coordinate treatment plans, all on medical liens. A personal injury attorney can help you navigate the medical lien process so that you can focus on your recovery.

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may need to pay for your medical treatment using MedPay. Our attorneys can assist you through the process of medical treatment reimbursement through MedPay if you are covered.

Investigate Your Accident

Our legal team will take steps to secure evidence for your case, including collecting photo and video surveillance, obtaining police, employment, and other records and reports, gathering eyewitness testimony, working with experts to explain how your accident happened and the extent of your injuries, and more.

Your attorney will also assist you with collecting proof of loss of income from your employer, or showing how to prove these damages if you own your own business. Your attorney will organize your medical treatment records, so there is a strong base in the amount of damages you claim from the opposing party.

Statute of Limitations

If it takes you a long time to complete medical treatment and pursue your personal injury claim, the other party’s insurance may draw out settlement negotiations until your case expires. Our expert attorneys will make sure your case is filed well within the Statute of Limitations, as well as meeting any other applicable deadlines and restrictions.

Because of the 2-year statute of limitations to bring a personal injury claim in Arizona, you must sometimes complete your case before you know what your total medical costs resulting from the accident will be. Our attorneys will collaborate with experts to project your future medical costs, lost potential future income, and other factors relevant to your case.

What to Do After an Accident in Tempe

After an accident, you should always first seek medical attention if injured. If you don’t think you need immediate medical attention, you should then exchange insurance information with the other driver and take pictures of the damage. Unless the damage to both vehicles is minor, you should call the police to file a report. Ideally, the police will list the other driver as at fault in the accident.

Even if you feel fine over the next few days, you may want to see a doctor to document any signs of injury to your neck or spine, as these injuries can emerge later down the road. You may be able to settle with the other driver’s insurance company on your own for a minor accident, but you should consult an attorney before proceeding with negotiations for a more serious accident.
