A Phoenix personal injury attorney helps individuals who have suffered injuries in accidents due to someone else’s negligence (as defined by Arizona legal statute 12-2505) receive financial compensation. If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering, physical injuries, lost wages, and more.
What a Phoenix personal injury lawyer can do for you is to help determine who is liable for your injuries, how much compensation you are entitled to receive, help you build your personal injury case, and represent you in a court of law.
A personal injury attorney can assist a victim throughout the lawsuit process. The most common duties and responsibilities a lawyer will perform are:
A personal injury attorney in Phoenix should take the time to explain the law and your rights. They should articulate how to establish your specific and unique claim under Arizona statutes and also explain complex legal concepts such as comparative negligence and the statute of limitations (12-542).
Each case is different and requires an analysis of the facts and circumstances as they apply to Arizona law. An experienced attorney should explain in detail the legal system and why each charge is being brought (or dropped.)
They should explain the legal process, assist with legal paperwork, negotiate with insurance companies, contact and retain expert witnesses, issue subpoenas, obtain the opposing side’s paperwork through discovery, hold depositions, and walk their client through the entire legal process.
Along the way, your Phoenix personal injury attorney should always provide you with legal advice, such as persuading the victim to avoid talking to the opposing side’s insurance company, retaining all medical records, and keeping a personal journal.
The ultimate job of any attorney is to ensure that their client, the victim, receives fair compensation through the legal process. Offering explanations and advice along the way can help the client understand proceedings and remove any fear, frustration, or emotional distress throughout the claims process.
While most claims are settled outside of a courtroom, a knowledgeable attorney should be prepared to represent their client fully in a court of law. Your Phoenix personal injury lawyer will be able to provide the resources and expertise necessary to ensure that your claim is accurately and adequately argued to the judge or jury.

A personal injury attorney in Phoenix will provide more than legal advice and representation in court. Your legal team will also:
This investigation may include hiring experts, interviewing witnesses, and developing practical and legal theories about how the accident occurred, who is liable, and calculating the damages.
We may also visit with medical providers to help understand serious injuries and how they are created and/or resolved.
As your injury attorney works through the investigation and your case, they should be able to assess your specific damages accurately. Damages in personal injury claims often include medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and future loss of income. In some cases, this may include non-economic damages like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium.
Often a lawyer will visit with insurance companies long before a case ever goes to trial to attempt to obtain a resolution and compensation for your damages.
Before a case ever goes to trial, typically, there will be settlement offers. A lawyer will negotiate with opposing lawyers and insurance adjusters to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
An attorney should represent you throughout the entire process. They will help you understand the law and how it directly applies to you. Our goal is to use this knowledge and experience to obtain the maximum compensation possible for you.
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be hesitant to seek legal help because of the potential costs involved. However, a Phoenix personal injury lawyer can help you with no upfront costs.
This means that you do not have to pay any money out of pocket to hire a lawyer to represent you. Instead, your lawyer will take a percentage of any settlement or award that you receive as compensation for your injuries.
This contingency fee arrangement allows you to focus on your recovery and get the justice you deserve without worrying about the financial burden of legal fees.
