Whatever caused your ladder fall accident, you have the right to pursue compensation. The legal team at Zanes Law will investigate your accident and determine who is at fault and liable.
When you hire us to handle your ladder fall accident, we will apply the “Duty of Care” legal premise to establish a bullet-proof case of negligence, fault, and liability, all of which will stand up strong in negotiations with insurance companies and lawyers and in presenting your case to a judge and jury.
The required “Duty of Care” elements we will present include:
Our legal team knows how to validate the above claims with substantial evidence, and we will work tirelessly toward that end.
We will search high, low, and everywhere in between for compelling evidence to lock your case with credibility. This evidence will not only prove liability but also serve as the basis for the damages we seek to recover.
In the course of our investigation, we will produce and document evidence from the following sources:
We will do everything from A to Z to make sure your case is backed by the kind of evidence nobody can ignore.
In the next phase of our case development, our legal team will itemize your damages, attaching values to each damage, and presenting the list in the form of a demand letter to the liable party’s insurer.
Some of the damages you might see there include:
If the insurer counter-offers our demands, our ladder fall accident lawyers in Phoenix will negotiate aggressively on your behalf to edge the insurer to a fair settlement.
If the insurer fails to agree to fair terms or denies your claim outright, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf in civil court.
Arizona’s statute of limitations requires that you file any legal action within a specified period of time following your accident.
When you hire Zanes Law, we will manage these deadlines and all other administrative details of your case, so you need not to bother with them. Keep in mind that the sooner you hire your lawyer, the sooner we can begin building your case using fresh evidence and clearly recollected witness testimony.
