WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER SUFFERING A PERSONAL INJURY?
After being injured, the first thing that you need to do is get the medical care that you need. Go to an emergency room, urgent care, or doctor in order to begin receiving the medical care that you will need to heal. You also need to report the accident. If you were in a car accident, call the police so that they can investigate the car accident and prepare a report. If you fell in a store, report the incident to management. At the very least, report your injury and the incident to the responsible party so that they are aware of what happened and how it happened. Also make sure you obtain the insurance information from the responsible party so that you know what insurance exists that you can make a claim against. Get the at-fault party’s name, address, phone number, and the insurance company’s name and policy number as well as the named of the insured under the policy. Also get the names of any witness who saw the accident along with their phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses. This witness information will be extremely important as you move forward with your personal injury claim. Finally, as soon as possible, please call Zanes Law and speak with either one of our Phoenix personal injury attorneys or Tucson personal injury attorneys so that we can answer your questions and explain to you your legal options.

Burn injuries tend to be severe and leave permanent scarring.
Examples: Hot liquid, flammable clothing (Halloween products), contact burns from electronic equipment, house fires, and much more.
Class Action and Mass Torts
Class Action Lawsuits:
Class action suits fall under mass torts as a general type of injury. Typically, when an individual person has suffered damages, but those damages are not large enough alone to justify legal action, a class action suit can be used if there are many other people who have been harmed in this same way. Simply put, when your claim is compiled with other individuals who have suffered the same or similar damages, a claim can be brought that often involves hundreds, sometime thousands, of people.
Examples: Employee Class Actions, Environmental Disaster Class Actions, and Manipulative Business Practices.
Mass Tort Lawsuits:
While class action suits involve a few thousand people and are generally confined to a specific geographical location, mass torts involve tens of thousands of people across the country.
Examples: Defective Products, Pharmaceutical Drugs, and Medical Devices
While class action cases are generally “normal” legal cases, mass torts are inherently very complex and are handled differently in the legal world.
When injured at a construction site, the victims claim can be complex because there are many different parties involved such as: (1) the general contractor who is in charge of the entire site, (2) sub-contractors (plumber, electrical), (3) local governments and/or property owners, etc.
These accidents require extensive investigation and often will involve a workers compensation claim as well.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is when a loved one is abused emotionally and/or physically, or neglected at a nursing home.
Emotionally- Your loved one may be noticeably upset more often, withdrawn, or not being as communicative. These symptoms may be a sign of emotional abuse.
Physically- Sometimes the elderly are hit, pushed around, or physically abused in other ways. These symptoms are easier to spot due to bruising or physical injuries.
Neglect- Nursing home neglect includes failure to provide appropriate care to your loved one. Signs include- loss of weight, weak, dry lips, bed sores, and cracked skin (hydration issue), rashes, etc.
Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” system in which injured employees get medical and other benefits no matter who causes the job-related accident. If an illness or injury is related to a job, the injured worker may also receive permanent compensation benefits and training for a suitable job.
Work-related injuries have proven to be very difficult for victims. Not only must they recover from their injuries, but they also face time off work and potential job loss. Don’t let the stress of a work-related injury overwhelm you.
What to do after being injured at work in Arizona.
- Notify the employer of the injury because failing to report your claim quickly could result in the denial of your claim.
- Fill out an incident report with your employer.
- Seek medical treatment and advise the medical provider that the injury is work related.
- File a claim with the Industrial Commission of Arizona.
- Continue with your medical treatment as directed, remembering that you need an appointment at least every 30 days with an explanation of your current work abilities provided by the physician.
- For severe or catastrophic injuries, seek immediate medical treatment, and then follow the first five steps.
When a home is destroyed and the insurance company doesn’t want to pay the insured because of policy coverages. Example: Your home is destroyed in a hurricane, but your insurance carrier refuses to pay claiming that a flood destroyed your home, but floods are not covered in your insurance policy. However, your home was actually destroyed by the hurricane winds, not flood waters.
