What can you recover if you have been injured in a Phoenix Auto Accident?

Suffering a sudden injury, especially one that wasn't your fault, causes pain, anxiety, and frustration.  What happens if I miss work? What about my pain and suffering?  The good news is that Arizona law allows recovery for many different situations and hiring the right Phoenix personal injury lawyer can help you get all the money you are entitled. 

To determine how much money your injury is worth, Arizona law allows our Phoenix personal injury lawyer to consider many different factors.   First, we can consider the nature, extent, and duration of your injury.  If you suffered a broken arm for example, the nature and extent of your injury would be much greater than if you sprained your ankle.  

Second, we can look at the pain and discomfort you have already experienced plus what is reasonably probable for you to experience in the future as a result of the injury.  Some injuries, such as severe burns, may leave a person with a lifetime of scars, pain and suffering that needs to be compensated.  For burn cases specifically, it is very important to contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer with experience handling burn cases.

Third, you should be compensated for reasonable, necessary medical care for your injury and any missed work or loss of earnings.  This means if you were taken to the emergency room by an ambulance and missed a week of work, you should be able to recover all of those expenses.

Finally, you can be financially compensated for loss of enjoyment of life, which is the participation in life’s activities to the quality and extent you normally enjoyed before the injury.  If you suffered a broken leg and you were a marathon runner and no longer can run, this will be factored into your final settlement.

This is a general overview of what you can recover when you have been injured in Arizona.  This list is not exhaustive and you should talk to an experienced Phoenix personal injury lawyer about the facts of your specific situation.  Our Phoenix personal injury lawyers are on call 7 days a week to help answer your questions and guide you in the right direction.

Do you need a lawyer for your Phoenix DUI?


If you have been convicted of a DUI in the past, there is no doubt you should have an experienced Phoenix DUI lawyer negotiate for you and help you navigate all of the collateral consequences (MVD issues, ignition interlock, home detention, professional license suspension, etc.). The stakes get much higher when there is a prior conviction within the past 84 months (7 years).  The cost increases, the jail increases, and the potential impact on your life is great.  With my clients, often I can save them thousands of dollars in fines and fees for a second time DUI.

If you this is your first DUI, you still need to talk to a professional, but that professional shouldn't cost two arms and three legs.  Being a former Arizona DUI Prosecutor and a DUI defense lawyer, I believe everyone should have a skilled and trusted advocate on their side.  I have often heard that "all the lawyer will do is take my money and I'm guilty, so way pay twice?"  Unfortunately, this is what happens from lawyers charging extremely high prices year after year for minor DUI offenses. I can understand the frustration.  

If you do not hire a good lawyer-one that will give you good value for you dollar-you will never know if there is a way to beat your DUI on a technicality, which can be from an illegal search, a malfunctioning breath machine, a mistake from the blood draw, an error from the prosecutor, and on and on. Only experienced DUI attorneys can analyze the evidence and look for any mistakes. If you can beat it, then your attorney is worth their weight in gold.  If you can't, they should be able to help get this off your record. Either way, a good Phoenix DUI attorney will offer value for your case. 

Heading into a DUI case alone is never advisable, you would basically be going down without a fight.  If you could hire a seasoned DUI attorney for $3,000, wouldn't you?  What if they include a motion to set aside your conviction?  The decision gets easier, doesn't it. What if the $3,000 everything your case needs, including trial if necessary?
