Sadly, insurance companies are sometimes less concerned with coverage for individuals, and more concerned with keeping as much money for their shareholders as possible. They will usually fight to give you the smallest settlement they can, just to make your claim go away. Our personal injury team can stand in your corner and fight for your rights.
Motorcycle accidents often involve different issues than those found in typical car accidents. Because law enforcement and insurers can sometimes have a bias against riders, your attorney may have to conduct a comprehensive investigation of an accident scene that may require an expert in accident reconstruction. You will also need a seasoned attorney who has experience dealing with these types of injuries.
Our lawyers can document and present to skeptical insurance adjusters the extent of the injuries suffered by accident victims along with the reasonableness of the costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation, loss of income, and diminished quality of life.
In an accident involving a 5,000-pound passenger vehicle and an 80,000 to 100,000-pound truck, there is little disagreement over which vehicle and its occupants are at a distinct disadvantage, regardless of liability or fault.
Trucking companies usually carry large liability policies to protect themselves in the event of an accident. An attorney experienced in handling truck accident cases is essential to receiving the compensation your case deserves. An in-depth knowledge of trucking regulations, the practices and policies of trucking companies, and how trucks operate can be vital in proving liability in these often complicated claims.
Boating accidents typically involve either PWCs or motor-driven boats, which can include sailboats with ancillary engines. Arizona law does not require boat operators to take an education course, though it is highly recommended.
Boating accidents are a unique feature of motor vehicle accident law. With an attorney who is well-acquainted and versed in Arizona’s laws and rules governing the waterways, you can be assured you will receive competent representation and your best opportunity at obtaining the compensation your case deserves.
Bus accidents are sometimes the scariest of accidents. The size of the bus, alone, is enough to make even the smallest of mishaps on the road escalate into a full-blown disaster. After the injuries and suffering, the complex liability issues, multi-bureau investigations and lengthy legal battles can be too much for anybody to bear while recovering from the trauma of the accident.
If you’ve find yourself in this situation, let us take some of the weight off your shoulders. Your job, right now, should be to recover. Our job is to fight your legal battle. Our attorneys will determine exactly what the bus companies are liable for and how much the insurance companies should pay for your injuries and suffering.
Although it is not against the law to text and drive in most cities in Arizona, except for Phoenix, Tempe and Tucson, which impose fines of $100 for a first offense and $250 for a second, it is a question of fact whether its use while operating a car constitutes negligence.
If texting led the driver to focus on an activity that was not driving and the driver’s eyes left the roadway, leading to a collision, then a jury or judge as trier of fact could easily conclude that it was a substantial factor in causing the accident and resultant injuries. Often times, our firm will take these cases on a contingency basis, so that our attorneys are only paid from the proceeds of any settlement or jury award.
