Were you in a terrible accident that left you injured, or unable to work? Did you suffer emotional damage due to the severity of an auto accident? These kinds of accidents happen to people everyday, and everyday regular people just like you get compensated for the suffering you’ve been through.
Every nine minutes, an Arizona car accident results in a personal injury. On average, two or three people are killed every day in an Arizona collision. Accident victims and families of the deceased rely on the Arizona car accident attorneys at Pew Law Center to help them obtain fair compensation for their injuries.
According to the most recent report from the Arizona Department of Transportation (DOT), more than 126,000 car crashes occurred on Arizona roads and highways during 2016. Most traffic accidents resulted only in property damage or unreported injuries, but collisions were responsible for more than 38,500 injuries and 865 deaths.
How Our Car Accident Attorneys in Arizona Can Help
An Arizona car accident lawyer can help car crash victims recover the compensation they deserve when the collision is caused by another driver’s carelessness. From our offices in Mesa, Pew Law Center offers legal representation to car crash victims in Phoenix and the greater metropolitan area, including Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Paradise Valley, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Glendale, and the surrounding area.
The car accident attorneys at Arizona’s Pew Law Group provide representation for all injury victims, including:
- Victims of collisions with heavy trucks
- Victims of collisions with busses
- Victims of collisions with all motor vehicles
We can help injury victims navigate the complex legal rules that govern car crashes, including comparative fault issues, claims for reimbursement made by health insurance companies, aggravation of preexisting conditions, and payment of uninsured/underinsured motorist claims.
The first priority of Pew Law Group is to make sure that the accident victims we represent are treated fairly. We investigate the facts and consult with experts, including doctors, engineers, and economists, to assemble the evidence needed to prove a claim. We give our clients useful advice about the steps they need to take in order to maximize their entitlement to compensation.
We negotiate with insurance adjusters so that our clients will not be pressured to make an unfair settlement. When insurance companies refuse to provide a fair settlement, we are dedicated to providing aggressive and effective trial representation.
Proving Fault: Leave It To Arizona Accident Professionals
According to the DOT, rear-end collisions accounted for 43% of all Arizona injury crashes in 2016. A rear-end collision is occasionally the fault of a driver who unexpectedly stops in traffic, but it is more commonly the fault of a driver who is not paying attention to the road.
Drivers who are distracted while driving (including the use of a cellphone) and fatigued drivers who fall asleep at the wheel are among those who cause rear-end collisions. Other causes of Arizona car accidents include:
- Failing to yield at an intersection
- Unsafe lane change
- Unsafe merging
- Intoxicated or drugged driving
- Ignoring traffic signals or signs
- Drifting across a centerline
- Unsafe passing
- Road rage
In almost half of all Arizona car accidents, the DOT did not identify a specific violation of a traffic law. Most of those cases involve a driver who was simply careless. In some cases, the drivers of two or more vehicles may have been careless. Apportioning fault in those cases is a task that the experienced car accident attorneys at Arizona’s Pew Law Center are well equipped to undertake.
Your Medical Treatment Should Be Your Top Priority
High-speed collisions (and even low-speed collisions involving motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians) as well as head-on collisions can produce catastrophic, life-changing injuries, including:
- Brain damage
- Loss of limbs
- Organ damage
- Eye injuries
- Other long-term disabilities
Rear-end collisions often result in whiplash injuries. The insurance industry has made whiplash a dirty word, but recent studies have refuted the industry’s claim that whiplash is not a serious injury. The forces produced by a rear-end impact at even a low speed can place violent stress upon the neck and spine, resulting in lasting and painful damage to nerves, muscles, tendons, and bones.
Additional injuries addressed by Pew Law Center’s Arizona car accident lawyers include:
- Broken bones
- Severe cuts and punctures
- Knee injuries
- Facial scarring
- Nerve damage
- Torn and stretched muscles, ligaments, and tendons
Even injuries that do not immediately appear to be serious can cause disabling pain after a day or two. You need to seek medical attention whenever you are injured after a car crash. Its important for your health, and your compensation.
Fight To Ensure You Receive Maximum Compensation
When a car accident results in death, Arizona law permits the victim’s spouse, children, or parents to file a wrongful death lawsuit. An Arizona car accident lawyer at Pew Law Center can advise family members about their entitlement to wrongful death compensation.
Injury victims who survive a collision can seek compensation from the driver whose carelessness caused the car accident. Compensation may include:
- Reimbursement for lost wages and future loss of earnings
- Past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses
- The expense of coping with a long-term disability
- Pain, suffering, anxiety, and loss of enjoyment of life
Compensation depends primarily upon fault, the nature and extent of the injury and, in some cases, the availability of insurance coverage. Compensation may also depend on intangible factors, including whether the injury victim cooperated with physicians by obtaining all recommended care.
Worried? Need Help? Our Auto Accident Legal Professionals Will Consult You For Free
The decision to consult with an injury attorney should be made as soon as possible after the accident occurs. Arizona car accident lawyers understand the importance of gathering evidence while it is still fresh. Interviewing witnesses before their memories fade, measuring and photographing skid marks, and notifying the insurance adjuster that the victim is represented are just some of the keys to bringing a personal injury claim to a successful outcome.
Injury victims need an Arizona car accident lawyer who is experienced, compassionate, diligent, knowledgeable, resourceful, and dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcome for clients. They need an attorney who is not afraid to take cases to trial, because insurance companies are more likely to settle cases when they know that an attorney has a track record of success in personal injury trials.
