What Are the Most Common Personal Injuries?

Personal injuries happen every day and can range from broken bones to head trauma. Listed below are some of the most common injuries our Phoenix, AZ, personal injury lawyers see. If you’ve suffered one of these injuries or any injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be owed money for your losses:

Soft tissue damage is among the most common injuries sustained in accidents. They occur when muscles, ligaments, or tendons are damaged after undergoing trauma. A common form of this is whiplash after a car accident.

A broken bone is never easy to deal with. Depending on the bone in question, it can severely impact the quality of your life and even the ability to do your job.

Even relatively minor back and neck injuries can lead to burdensome chronic pain that you may be dealing with for years to come.

Not only is organ damage a potentially severe threat to your life, but it can also be a serious threat to your finances, as these injuries tend to require major surgeries.

Brain injuries are among the most damaging of all personal injuries. They can go so far as to affect the way you think and who you are as a person. Even if you don’t experience these side effects, brain injuries can still prevent you from performing certain motor functions and can have a devastating impact on your day-to-day life.

What Causes Personal Injuries?

Personal injuries can occur due to a wide variety of causes. The following are just a few of the most common:

A large number of personal injury cases stem from car accidents, leaving thousands of families in Phoenix and across Arizona devastated. Car accidents are predominantly caused by drivers failing to follow the rules of the road or being distracted behind the wheel.

There are certain safety standards expected to be upheld by property owners. If you get injured from a slip and fall due to careless maintenance of grounds, you may be entitled to compensation.

When trucking companies pressure their drivers to complete their deliveries with unreasonable deadlines, they put those drivers and others sharing the road at risk of collisions. Unfortunately, this happens quite frequently, and due to their massive size and weight, semi-trucks can cause significant damage to passenger cars and the individuals inside. If you were injured in a big truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to significant compensation.

Medical malpractice can happen in many forms. Put simply, it involves an injury being sustained as a direct result of a medical practitioner not providing the necessary level of care you’re entitled to.

Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Case

“Negligence” is the basis of fault in all personal injury cases. In order to recover money for your losses, you’ll have to prove the validity of your claim by demonstrating three basic facts:

  • The defendant was acting irresponsibly, or being negligent.
  • Their negligence led to the situation in which you were injured.
  • The situation itself directly caused your injuries.

Proving fault is often more difficult than it may seem and contacting an experienced Phoenix, AZ, personal injury lawyer can make all the difference.

Personal Injury FAQs

Every injury case is unique. Not only can we not tell you right away how much your case is worth, but any attorney who does probably shouldn’t be trusted. That’s why we need to sit down and discuss the specifics of your case with you, so we can figure out what to demand. Some cases are worth a few thousand dollars, while others may be worth a million or more. The only way to know is to contact us for a review.

You may be eligible to receive a wide range of compensation in your case. The specifics depend on your individual circumstances. You may be able to seek damages to help pay for the medical bills you’ve received and those that are expected to rack up in the future. If you’re out of work, you may also be able to seek compensation for your lost wages and potential future wages. You might even be able to fight for compensation for such things as pain and suffering, emotional damages, and more.

The time limit, also known as the statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Arizona is up to two years after the date of the injury.

Arizona has laws dictating what’s known as comparative negligence. This means a portion of your compensation could be withheld based on your percentage of responsibility for the accident. For example, if it is determined that you were 50% at fault for a car accident, the settlement you’re entitled to may be reduced by that same amount.

While you can represent yourself, securing the services of an experienced personal injury attorney will give you the best chance of getting the compensation you deserve. Navigating the legal process and negotiations with the insurance company without a knowledgeable lawyer on your side can be incredibly difficult and can hurt your case. If you’ve suffered a serious injury that wasn’t your fault, don’t leave your legal rights up to chance. Contact Goldwater Law Firm today to find out how we can help.

When you work with Goldwater Law Firm, you won’t have to worry about any upfront fees or retainers. We don’t charge anything unless you’ve recovered what you’re owed. In other words, we don’t get paid if you don’t get paid!

In the aftermath of any kind of personal injury, it’s important that you take certain steps to make your case as strong as possible, provided you’re not too injured to do so. If you can, take photos at the scene of the accident, including pictures of your injuries and any property damage you may have sustained. Be sure to obtain all the necessary insurance information from anyone else involved, and collect statements from witnesses. Be sure to call an attorney before talking to anyone else. Don’t provide any statements to insurance companies or opposing attorneys without talking to one of our lawyers first.

Seeing a doctor after suffering a personal injury is essential for your case as well as your own health. Sometimes there are injuries that aren’t immediately apparent after an accident, so you’ll want a doctor to detect them as early as possible. Plus, having medical records from visits to the doctor is essential in quantifying how much compensation you may be entitled to for medical costs. Just make sure you keep all of your appointments. Failure to do so can be harmful to your personal injury claim and your health.

This depends on the event. After a car accident, for example, you should report the incident to your insurance company just to make sure you’re covered. When you do, though, stick to the facts, and don’t offer any opinions. There will be time to tell your story later. In terms of the other insurance company, you don’t have to speak to the adjuster. In fact, you should never sign anything they put in front of you without having your Phoenix, AZ, personal injury lawyer look it over first. It’s best just to direct them to your lawyer from the start.

Negligence is the key factor in every personal injury case. In order to get the compensation you deserve, it must be proven that the other party involved in your accident acted negligently, or carelessly, and caused you to get hurt. Proving negligence can be more difficult than it seems and having an experienced attorney on your side will be to your benefit.

In general, most personal injury cases are settled in negotiations and do not require a trial. However, if the insurance company refuses to settle for what’s fair, you may need to take your case to court. Our network of experienced trial lawyers will be ready to fight for your rights in negotiations and the courtroom.

The amount of time it takes to settle your personal injury claim depends on a variety of factors, as no two cases are the same. When you work with Goldwater Law Firm, you can rest assured that our team of Phoenix, AZ, personal injury lawyers and industry experts will work hard to settle your claim for the maximum amount possible as quickly and efficiently as we can.
