AUTO ACCIDENT LAWYER SERVING CLIENTS IN PHOENIX


When a traffic crash happens, a Phoenix personal injury lawyer can help. Whether you are involved in a high-speed collision on I-10 or in a rear-end crash on a local road in Phoenix, any auto accident can be devastating. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), there were more than 32,000 fatal car accidents in the country last year, and 783 of those occurred in Arizona. That number does not include the thousands of individuals who suffer serious and life-threatening injuries in motor vehicle collisions throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Getting hurt in a serious car accident often means that you are facing substantial medical bills in addition to lost wages. Many traffic crash injuries require extensive rehabilitation, and numerous injury victims are unable to work while they heal. Some car accident injury victims become permanently disabled as a result of the crash and cannot expect to be able to work again. At Cluff Law, PLC, we are committed to assisting plaintiffs in Phoenix who have sustained injuries because of another party’s negligence.

Filing Your Phoenix Car Accident Claim as Soon as Possible

After suffering injuries in a traffic collision, it can be difficult to think about filing a car accident claim. However, it is important to discuss your options for seeking compensation with a car accident lawyer in Phoenix as soon as possible. Under Arizona law, the statute of limitations on most motor vehicle crash cases is two years. To be clear, you must file your lawsuit within two years from the day you sustained your injuries, or else you can be barred from filing a claim.

In addition to making sure that you file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations, it is always a good idea to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to gather and preserve evidence. The sooner we can talk to witnesses and evaluate photographic evidence in your case, the sooner we can begin the process of seeking financial compensation for your losses.

DAMAGES IN A PHOENIX MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISION CASE


If you file a lawsuit, what kinds of compensation can you expect to receive? Car accident victims in Phoenix and across Arizona typically seek compensatory damages, which are designed to provide an accident with compensation for her losses. There are two kinds of compensatory damages:

  • Economic damages (objective financial losses, such as hospital bills or lost wages); and
  • Noneconomic damages (pain and suffering, as well as other subjective losses).

You should know that Arizona uses a theory of comparative negligence, which can limit a plaintiff’s recovery. In general, this can come into play when a plaintiff was also negligent in the accident, and thus partially liable for her injuries. The “pure comparative fault” system that Arizona uses allows a plaintiff’s damages award to be reduced by the percentage by which she is negligence. Even if an Arizona plaintiff is 99 percent responsible, however, she can still recover. Our goal is to prove that you were not responsible for the accident and that you should be eligible for the full amount of damages awarded to you.

SCOTT D.

I would highly recommend Brig for legal representation. He represented us in a case that seemed like David vs. Goliath. It was very paperwork and motion intensive, and Brig handled everything very professionally and was always on task. He was fantastic representing us in the courtroom and was very prepared. He always responded to us quickly and professionally, made good arguments, and we would absolutely use him again in the future.
