Arizona is a fault state. That means that the person at fault for your car accident should have to compensate you for your losses and damage caused by the crash. Unfortunately, there are many cases where the other driver or their insurance company will refuse to pay for your losses, even when fault is clear. That’s where an experienced Mesa personal injury lawyer should come in.
Car accidents can cause extremely serious damages, injuries, and even death. Being involved in an auto collision could affect you or your loved ones for the rest of your life. You need an experienced car accident lawyer to help you get a fair result after your accident.
Nursing Home and Elder Abuse
When you move an elderly loved one into a nursing home, you place a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of the nursing home. If they violate your trust and harm your loved one, you may feel betrayed, confused, and angry. You likely have legal options if your loved one was abused in a nursing home setting.
Asserting a legal claim against a nursing home can help you and your loved one address additional costs that you may have incurred, including medical expenses. You may also be able to recover money for loved one’s pain and suffering as well. The nursing home abuse attorneys at SGP Law can walk you through your options as part of our free consultation process. You don’t have to go through this difficult time alone.
Motorcycles are extremely popular in Arizona, but they can also be very dangerous. Part of the thrill of the ride is that there is little protecting you from the open road—but that is also what results in severe injuries in the event of an accident.
Drivers must be on the lookout for motorcyclists, and when they violate that obligation, legal liability often results. The vast majority of motorcycle accidents that involve another vehicle are caused by the other driver, not the motorcyclist. In many cases, that means that the other driver should have to pay for your injuries and related damages. The experienced team of Mesa personal injury lawyers at SGP Law have a team of motorcycle accident attorneys that will help you hold the other driver accountable.
You would be shocked at how often medical malpractice actually occurs. However, many people do not report it because they assume that they can’t do anything or that their problem was really just dumb luck. In reality, many adverse health reactions occur because a doctor or another medical professional made a mistake.
Surgery errors are by far the most common type of medical malpractice case, but medical errors that result in injuries or even death can occur at any time. Every medical professional has an obligation to care for you based on the standards in the industry. When their actions fall below that standard, you need a medical malpractice lawyer specializing in personal injury to help you prove that their mistake caused your injuries. You need SGP Law.
Wrongful Death Accidents
When someone else’s carelessness or recklessness causes the death of your loved one, you may have a claim for wrongful death. Although nothing can really make up for your devastating loss, wrongful death claims are designed to hold the at-fault party responsible for the injuries that your family experiences. Some of the damages focus on the monetary support that your loved one provided, while other damages offer additional compensation for the emotional or mental support that you no longer have after your loss.
At SGP Law, our wrongful death lawyers know how difficult it can be to suddenly lose a loved one because we have unfortunately seen it hundreds of times in our over 50 years of experience. It’s hard not only from an emotional perspective but also from a financial standpoint. You likely relied on your family member’s income to maintain your household, and not having that income can put a severe strain on your standard of living. SGP Law wants to help you get the money you deserve after this extremely difficult loss.
Trucking accidents can be very severe because of the sheer size of the vehicle involved in the collision. Property damage and personal injuries can be extensive. You may have to deal with long-term effects of the crash for years to come. Unfortunately, the seriousness of truck accidents is even further complicated by the fact that they can involve several parties, including several experienced insurance companies.
Fending for yourself after a trucking accident is tough. At SGP Law, our personal injury lawyers in Mesa ensure that an insurance company or trucking company never takes advantage of our clients. Our truck accident lawyers can also help you navigate the complexities of trucking accidents.
Dog Bite Injuries
Millions of dog bites happen in the United States every year. You may be surprised just how frequent these instances are. Although most dog bites only result in soft tissue injuries, they can be much more severe as well, causing long-term nerve damage and scarring. In some cases, they may also cause psychological injuries, including fear of dogs.
Dog bite laws in Arizona can be tricky, but SGP Law can help you collect the right kind of evidence and information to present your case in the best light possible. In most situations, the dog owner should be responsible for your damages and losses, and our dog bite attorneys can help hold them accountable.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Property owners must keep their premises safe for visitors like you. When they don’t, and an injury results, they are likely legally responsible for your injuries. Slip and fall injuries can be severe, ranging from broken bones to causing chronic back issues and head injuries.
