Do I need a lawyer to file a personal injury claim?
It is highly recommended that you hire a lawyer for your personal injury claim. Your financial well-being could be at stake and your odds of obtaining the full amount of compensation will drastically increase with the help of a legal professional.
Our firm has a 99% success rate and thanks to our strict focus on personal injury cases, we have a unique perspective and know what details make a difference in damage recovery.
What if I can’t afford a lawyer?
Many personal injury lawyers, including our own, do not charge fees unless you collect compensation. A portion of the settlement will pay for your fees. Some people choose to avoid personal injury lawyers for this reason. But the amount you save in collecting your maximum potential compensation will make having an experienced attorney at your corner worth it.
Can I file a claim if I was at fault for the accident?
Regardless of your memory and perspective of an incident, you might not be at fault or share the blame. A lawyer can do a full evaluation of the accident. Arizona factors fault into personal injury cases, but insurance companies usually try to maximize blame to avoid paying out. A professional personal injury lawyer will know how to minimize fault while pursuing your recovery.
How much money can I recover in a claim?
Damage recovery amounts vary case-by-case. If your case comes to a victory or settlement, you will be compensated for medical bills, lost wages from missing work, and other bills and losses tied to your injury.
