Recovering Your Damages and Easing Your Mind

Our legal team will tackle the challenge of investigating your case to gather information regarding the financial impact of your accident and injuries.

To do this, we will gather all your medical records and obtain wage statements from your employer. We will consult with various experts, including economists, medical professionals, vocational therapy experts, and life-care planning consultants to assess the economic losses you have experienced and will experience due to your injuries.

We will total all these figures to arrive at the figure we will demand from the at-fault party.

Common Types of Recoverable Damages in a Gilbert Car Accident

Damages resulting from car accidents vary from one case to the next. The amount we seek to recover in your case will depend on the extent and severity of your injuries.

Some of the types of damages you might see in your demand letter include:

  • Doctor’s fees
  • Prescription medicines
  • Pain management
  • Surgeon’s fees
  • Ambulance
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost income
  • Lost benefits
  • Replacement services
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

If you lost a loved one in a car accident caused by another person’s negligence, you are entitled to pursue a wrongful death action. Zanes Law’s wrongful death team will help you in this pursuit.

Our legal team will calculate your damages and fight for your right to recover them. This process begins with filing a third-party claim against the at-fault party and sending a demand letter to their insurer.

Negotiating With the Insurance Company for a Healthy Settlement

Insurance is a business. The adjuster who receives your claim will not be jumping at the chance to give you the compensation you demand. Rather, they will most likely respond with a low-ball counter-offer.

At this point, our injury lawyers enter into an aggressive negotiation process. We will present the facts of your accident, backed by the evidence we gather through our investigation. We will work vigorously to convince the insurer to increase their settlement offer to an amount that will meet your needs and make you happy.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Your Gilbert Car Accident

If the insurance company fails to agree to a fair settlement amount, we will file a personal injury lawsuit and take the matter to civil court. There, our legal team will litigate the facts of your case before a judge and jury.

Often, the defendant’s lawyer will call for mediation before or during the trial and attempt to settle the case out of court. Again, your Zanes Law legal team will stand their ground and champion your rights to receive the compensation you deserve for your damages.

If this does not happen, the judge and/or jury will determine the matter and ultimately issue an award in their decision.

A Gilbert car accident lawyer from Zanes Law will represent your case from beginning to end, fighting every step of the way to get you the compensation you deserve. Call us at 866-499-8989 for a free case review.

Common Types of Car Accidents in Gilbert, AZ

Any time a car moves down a road, any number of factors can come together to result in a collision. Although every car accident is different, collisions usually break down into one of the following categories:

  • “T-Bone” or side-impact collisions, also known as broadside
  • Sideswipe collisions
  • Single-car accidents
  • Rollover crashes
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Multiple-vehicle pile-ups
  • Head-on collisions

Our Gilbert car accident lawyers will work with an accident reconstruction specialist to determine the factors and events that combined to create your car accident. The report will play an integral role as we develop your case.

We Will Investigate Your Car Accident to Uncover Key Evidence

While the scene of your accident is still intact, our investigative team will visit the site to gather evidence to support your case.

During our on-site investigation, we will:

  • Interview witnesses
  • Obtain photos of the scene
  • Seek out video sources, perhaps from surveillance cameras
  • Document road conditions, street signs, etc.
  • Record trace evidence, like skid marks and tire marks

We will also obtain the police report to ensure accuracy. We will then match the evidence we find with the accident reconstruction specialist’s report to identify the at-fault party. Next, we work to establish negligence and liability.

How We Establish Negligence in Your Car Accident

Before an insurer, judge, or jury will consider settling or awarding you damages, we must persuade them that the at-fault party behaved negligently.

Personal injury law prescribes a specific method for establishing the negligence required to convey liability. Four steps comprise this method:

  1. We prove that the defendant owed you a duty to take reasonable care to keep you from being injured. All drivers have this duty.
  2. We prove that the defendant violated this duty through their actions or failure to act.
  3. We will prove that the defendant’s breach of duty caused the accident that caused your injuries.
  4. We will prove that you suffered damages—physical, economic, and emotional for which you demand compensation.
