What to Do After an Accident

If you've been injured in an accident, you may be unsure of how to handle your situation or what to do first. Your first priority, though, should always be your health. Seeking medical attention for your injuries is important because the sooner your condition is diagnosed by a medical professional, the sooner you can be treated and given time to recover. Even if you don’t notice any injuries immediately, symptoms may appear in the hours and days following your accident – getting medical attention is always the safest option.

After you’re been treated, hire a personal injury law firm that is known for its success rate in helping clients recover from their injuries. Our firm has recovered millions in a wide range of injury claims and has the resources you need to begin investigating your accident. The more evidence you have to support your claim and protect your rights to compensation, the better. We’re able to collect information like medical records and receipts, photos and videos of your injuries and the accident scene, witness statements, and more. We can also communicate with insurance adjusters on your behalf.

Handling a personal injury claim on your own can be overwhelming and confusing, and you may not be able to secure the full amount of compensation you need to cover your costs. All you have to do to relieve yourself of these burdens is pick up the phone and call our firm. We can handle the rest.

What is Personal Injury law?

Personal injury law refers to the civil claims that are filed as a result of wrongful conduct or negligence. The concept of negligence requires every person to behave responsibly and avoid putting others at risk; a driver has a responsibility to keep the road safe for other drivers, for example, while a property owner must maintain their premises for visitors and tenants. When people fail to provide others with a duty of care, accidents and injuries occur. By establishing liability, victims can hold negligent parties financially responsible for their damages.

Key terms often used in personal injury claims include:

Plaintiff
The plaintiff in a personal injury case is the victim who files the claim. This is the person who has been injured and is alleging that the at-fault party is responsible for negligence. Plaintiffs can be compensated for the damages they’ve accrued as a result of their injuries.
Statute of Limitations
This refers to the deadline to file a personal injury claim successfully. All states have their own statutes that dictate how much time a victim has to collect compensation. In Arizona, victims have two years from the date of injury to file a claim. Missing this deadline means forfeiting your right to recover damages.
Defendant
In a personal injury case, the defendant is the person being accused of negligence. Defendants, if found guilty of negligence, are responsible for compensating victims. Defendants can be individuals like drivers and property owners, as well as entities like employers, commercial trucking companies, and more.
Damages
This refers to the costs you’ve accrued as a direct result of your injuries. When you win your lawsuit, you can be compensated to cover the costs of medical expenses like hospital stays, medications, surgeries, physical therapy, and more, as well as lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. Families who file wrongful death claims can also recover damages like burial and funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship.
