Our Lawyers Assist in Seeking Car Accident Damages
Know your worth. This is one of the most vital aspects of a car accident case. Victims tend to underestimate their own injuries and losses, especially in the initial days following a crash. Don’t agree to anything while you’re still in shock or learning about your own condition. We can help you take the time to fully consider how the accident has affected your health and wealth.
Once we have an idea of the collision’s consequences, our personal injury lawyers and staff push for compensation to cover:
- Emergency medical care
- Surgeries and hospital stays
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Mental health resources
- Lost income
- Reduced ability to earn
- Pain and suffering
Afraid your case isn’t worth pursuing? Healthcare.gov estimates that it takes $7,500 just to fix a broken leg, while three days in the hospital could run you $30,000. Some situations could take those costs even higher, like traumatic brain injuries. After that hospital stay, you may still need medication, equipment, and time off work to get back on your feet.
More than the money, consider the effect on your well-being. Even a low-speed fender bender can cause whiplash. Far from a minor injury, the Cleveland Clinic reports whiplash can cause pain a year later in 12 to 50 percent of cases. BMC Public Health goes even further, finding that victims experienced poorer quality of life up to five years after the initial injury.
Our auto accident attorneys analyze your case from all angles to find compensable losses you might not even recognize yet. From the loss of favorite hobbies to the development of phobias, we identify wide-ranging consequences to make sure settlement offers are comprehensive.
We Represent Those Lost in Fatal Car Accidents
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (AZDOT), three people are killed each day in accidents on Arizona roads. Over 20 percent of those crashes involve alcohol.
If you lost someone to a fatal car accident, you may not know where to begin in pursing legal action. Our wrongful death attorneys believe you shouldn’t have to worry about that at all while grieving. Instead, we can manage the investigation, paperwork, and negotiations for a wrongful death case.
Fatal crash cases can recover damages not only to help with funeral and burial expenses, but also to compensate family members for the singular loss of a loved one. If you lost a parent, damages can acknowledgment the loss of their counsel. If you lost a spouse, we can seek compensation for the loss of intimacy and help with parenting.
We Collect Evidence for Your Damages
To ensure the other parties in your case know your worth, we utilize evidence like:
- Traffic, security, dash, and bystander camera footage
- Photos of the scene, debris, location, and injuries
- Police accident reports and citations
- Medical records, bills, and treatment plans
- Analysis by experts like doctors and mechanics
These can help illustrate that the other driver was careless, causing the collision and your injuries. For instance, traffic camera footage might catch a driver speeding. Photos from the scene can show points of impact. Medical bills can attest to the source of injuries. Experts can reconstruct the crash.
If relevant, we might also collect specialized evidence like:
- Drug and alcohol test results
- Transportation logs for commercial vehicles
- Trucking company hiring and training practices
- Rideshare app activity
- Phone, text, email, and social media posts
For instance, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces hours-of-service regulations. These prevent commercial truck drivers from driving while drowsy. If you were hit by a truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel, we can obtain transportation logs or investigate if the trucking company failed to enforce those regulations.
We can explore other forms of evidence for unique accident scenarios like ones involving Uber or Lyft, distracted driving, or when drivers cause accidents while conducting business.

Having representation can even alleviate the daily grind of pursuing a claim. We field calls and emails, put pressure on the other party to respond efficiently, and make sure you are given the space to heal or grieve.
We Also Aren’t Afraid of Big Businesses
Many car accident claims and suits end up involving more than just the drivers. Commercial trucking companies, taxi companies, construction companies, rideshares, product manufacturers, and private property owners could all figure into your case.
Simply confronting a business for their role in a motor vehicle collision can open you up to increased scrutiny, intimidation, and attempts to trick you into accepting less. You are entitled to your own team to fight back.
Businesses often try to avoid liability by redirecting blame at contractors, other drivers, or even you. In cases where more than one party shares liability, you may need to file a claim or suit against each one. We can help you fight on multiple fronts.
