It doesn’t matter who caused the injury or property damage – a large corporation, the government, or an individual – your Arizona personal injury attorney team will hold them accountable for their negligence and help win you fair compensation.

What is a personal injury case?

A personal injury case is based on personal injury law, which is a legal framework that provides a means for injury victims to recover compensation for their injuries and seek justice. Also referred to as Tort Law, personal injury law covers cases involving accidents, intentional acts such as sexual assault, defective products and defamation. Every Arizona personal injury claim has two core issues – liability and damages. Was someone liable for the injury or damages and what were the nature of the damages? Accident cases involve the concept of negligence. Negligence is a failure to exercise the care that a reasonable person would do in the circumstances relating to the accident. In order to establish negligence, four elements must be shown:

1. Duty

Duty is a legal obligation requiring that individuals or companies exercise a standard of reasonable care while performing actions that could harm others. This can encompass many things, such as a doctor providing care, or another motorist driving their car. The defendant does not have to know the plaintiff to owe them a duty.

2. Breach

Breach is a violation of that duty. The defendant breached that duty by failing to act as a “reasonably prudent person” should. In other words, the defendant should have known that their actions would likely cause injury to others.

3. Causation

Causation is the link between the breach of duty and the injury or harm suffered. For negligence to established, the injury must be a result of the breach.

4. Damages

Damages refer to actual injuries caused by the breach of duty.

How much does a personal injury attorney in Arizona charge?

At Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP, our Arizona personal injury lawyers handle all cases on a contingency fee basis. This means we never charge any fees unless we secure compensation on our client’s behalf – there are absolutely no out of pocket fees when we take a case. Once we are successful, we charge a percentage of the recovery.

How do I know if I have a claim?

While it’s not the only requirement, the injury needs to have been someone else’s fault, and caused by their negligence. Physically visible injuries are not necessary for a personal injury claim; attacks of defamation, emotional distress, or the expectation of harm would all be grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit against that person. Another thing to consider is whether the injury created compensatory damages, such as medical expenses and bills or lost wages. If all of these things are true, then you have a personal injury case. It is recommended that you speak with one of our skilled Arizona injury lawyers immediately.

Who can file an injury claim?

When the willful or negligent act of another person or entities cause someone to suffer an injury, that person may file a claim under personal injury law. Each state has different laws detailing what qualifies as a personal injury. For example, workers’ compensation covers any injury that occurs at work. To better determine whether your situation qualifies under Arizona law, contact the Arizona accident lawyers at Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP to schedule a free consultation.

How much is my case worth?

The value of a personal injury case varies based on the amount of damages the injuries you have incurred. Damages can be awarded for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, loss of earnings, loss of earning capacity, medical bills – both present and future, among others. In certain circumstances, courts may award punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded when the wrongful behavior of the defendant was particularly reprehensible. Additionally, the Arizona personal injury law firm you choose can have a huge impact on the amount you recover. Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP is considered to be one of the top plaintiff’s law firms in the country and we regularly receive referrals from other personal injury lawyers because of our track record of getting very large settlements and verdicts.

How long will my case take?

Every personal injury case is different, some can settle very quickly while others may take years to complete. This often depends on the defendant you are dealing with. If you are dealing with an insurance company, they will often try to pay you as little as possible to resolve your claim and offer pennies on the dollar for what your case is actually worth. Other defendants, especially in defective product, dangerous drug and medical device cases, may need to go to trial to be settled. It is vitally important to work with a Arizona personal injury law firm that will not settle your case for less than it’s worth just to get a quick result. If a company is not dealing fairly with you, taking them to trial may be the only way to secure just compensation for the harm you have suffered. At Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP, our trial lawyers have significant experience taking cases to trial against large companies and winning. We have secured over $1 billion for our clients in the last 10 years and set records along the way.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

If you are considering filing an injury claim, a personal injury attorney can make a significant difference in the outcome. Statistically, plaintiffs who hire an accident lawyer receive higher settlements than people who represent themselves. Our trial lawyers have the knowledge and experience to handle negotiations with insurance companies and if necessary, take your claim to trial. We are well known for our experience in the courtroom, our success rate, and high verdicts.
