The first thing you should do after an accident is to check whether you or anyone else involved in the accident needs medical attention. If yes, then immediately call for medical help. If you are not taken to the emergency room, then take pictures or videos of the accident site and try and get contact information of as many witnesses as you can. DO NOT apologize or admit fault, as this may be used against you later. Instead, call an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you understand your options.
Sometimes it can be very clear, but other times not so much. That is why you need an experienced personal injury attorney who will go over your case in detail. Based on the facts of the accident and the personal injury laws in Arizona, the attorney will walk you through all of the potential problems and challenges of your case, which will help you to make an informed decision on whether or not you want to proceed further.
The statute of limitations for a personal injury case in the state of Arizona is 2 years from the date you knew or should have known of the injuries that would put a reasonable person on notice to investigate the cause. For a car accident case, it is the date when the crash took place. In a death case, it is the date of death. It is generally recommended that if you wish to file a personal injury case, you do it as soon as possible, while the evidence is still fresh and potential witnesses are more readily available.
DO NOT speak to the insurance adjuster or provide him/her with any kind of information. They may seem friendly and sympathetic, but they will try their best to coax a statement out of you that can later be used against you to reduce or eliminate liability on their insured. Tell them you are too hurt and upset to talk to them, and then immediately call your lawyer. The same applies when someone else’s attorney tries to contact you.
In Arizona, a plaintiff is entitled to full compensation for 2 types of damages – economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages are generally based on tangible costs and objective losses such as reasonable medical bills for treatment related to the negligence, lost wages for time missed from work, etc. Non-economic damages are more subjective, such as pain and suffering, mental distress, etc. It is important that the damage is quantifiable and not speculative for you to receive compensation.
Any lawyer who tries to tell you this right off the bat is misleading you to convince you to sign up with him/her. There are several factors that determine the number, including your injuries, medical bills, how clear the liability is, and perhaps most importantly, how much insurance the defendant has. If you have very serious injuries, but there is only $25,000 of insurance available (and the defendant has no assets), then that is what your case is “worth” and no one can get you any more than that. Those same injuries could result in a $500,000 settlement, though, if there is more insurance available.
This depends on the medical treatment plan you need due to the injuries you suffered in the accident. The worst thing you can do for your case is rush into a settlement, because once you accept a settlement, even if your injuries do not resolve, you cannot get additional compensation. A typical car crash case should take upwards 6 months to resolve. A more complex personal injury case could take as long as 2 years or more.
At Snyder & Wenner, our personal injury attorneys get paid on what is called a contingency fee. This means that we are paid out of the settlement or the trial verdict. In simple terms, if we fail to recover any money for you, you do not owe us anything. This way, you get to have access to the best personal injury attorneys in Arizona without having to pay a single cent out of pocket.
