Comprehensive Overview of Personal Injury
Have you suffered an injury in Phoenix?
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, there were 106,771 total crashes throughout the state of Arizona in 2010. One person was injured as a result of these accidents every 10.50 minutes, and one person was killed every 11.50 hours. Single crashes only accounted for 17.42% of all traffic accident, and this means that collision with a motor vehicle in transport was the main cause of accidents. When accidents are the result of someone's negligence or carelessness, victims have the right to hold that person responsible for the damage caused.

There are a large number of drowning cases in Arizona due to the number of swimming pools and the warm weather. Sadly, many of these cases involve small children. Even if children survive a drowning accident, they may have to live with brain damage, lung damage, and more.
When families entrust their elderly loved ones to the care of a nursing home or other care facility, they expect that they will be treated with kindness and professionalism. When the opposite occurs, the family wants to do everything possible to defend their loved ones.
Unfortunately, there are many insurance companies who want to give injured people the lowest amount possible when they were the victims of an accident. Rather than doing their job and helping them with medical costs, they are reluctant to give them compensation because they want to keep profits at a maximum.
As motorcycle riders have little to no protection when involved in a traffic collision, the injuries they sustain can be life-altering and sometimes deadly. Every year, over 5,000 motorcycle riders and their passengers are killed in accidents.
If you have been victimized because of the negligence of another, you could be entitled to compensation for injuries and lost income. Not only that, but you could get help for future medical costs like physical therapy and reconstructive surgeries.

If you have been injured in an airplane accident, bicycle accident, boating accident, bus accident, jet ski accident, train accident, or other accident, you may be able to seek compensation if your case meets certain criteria.
Any traffic collision involving a semi-truck or another type of truck can lead to devastating consequences. Due to the large size and weight of sem-trucks, other smaller vehicles have little protection against them. If the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol or was tired from driving too many hours, they could be responsible for the accident.
Slip & Fall
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, contact a legal professional from our team as soon as possible. Whether if it was from a lack of safety warning, a slippery surface, or poor lighting, you could be facing broken ones, internal organ damage, brain injuries, and more.
Pedestrian accidents are very common and often end in serious injury or death. Drivers often fail to remember to look out for pedestrians before crossing a street or turning, and pedestrians can be injured while crossing a crosswalk or while walking along the side of the road.

Types of Injuries
The types of injuries that can be sustained following a serious accident can vary. From head and face injuries to brain injuries, back and neck injuries to broken bones, these damages can cause permanent harm to victims.
One of the most devastating things that can happen to a family is the loss of a loved one. If a family member was killed because of the negligence of another, you could be entitled to compensation.

- Lost income from employment
- Medical costs
- Medical equipment
- Ongoing costs for nursing care
- Predicted future medical treatments
- Pain and suffering
Many insurance policies cover medical costs and property damage resulting from an accident, but recovering the full amount of compensation that is available can be exceptionally difficult. Our firm is highly effective when dealing with insurance companies on behalf of injury victims, and we understand that an insurance settlement offer may be insufficient compared to the amount of injury and suffering from an accident. Our goal when representing clients with personal injuries is to help them receive the maximum monetary compensation that they deserve.
