This was the 1st time I've used Zanes Law. It was a fantastic experience for having to go through a situation most would rather not. The attorney and staff were always available to answer my questions and explained things clearly and were obviously 100% in my corner. My attorney, Jim, was very genuine and made me immediately comfortable when I came in to speak with him about my case. Every case manager I dealt with was patient and helpful. I would definitely return to Zanes should the time ever come again that I need a personal injury firm.

Zanes Law was a terrific legal experience. I first went to a law firm that only wanted me to go to physical therapy and pad the bill, so they could utilize my insurance policy to its capacity. Once I went to Zanes, they were honest, professional and prompt with calls almost once a week. Sometimes I got a call just because we did not have contact for close to two weeks. Some calls were to just ask how I was doing. I also received more money than originally discussed. Great job Zanes Law!!!!! If need be I will use their services again. THANKS

Criminal Charges vs. Injury Claims

As mentioned, street racing crashes can result in arrests and criminal charges against reckless drivers and others involved. You might assume that the criminal cases will also take care of your losses, though you would be mistaken.

The criminal justice system does allow judges to order offenders to pay restitution for harm they caused, though the following are usually true:

  • The restitution ordered is rarely close to the value of your full past and future losses.
  • The chances that a defendant will be able to pay restitution might be slim, especially if they receive a jail sentence.

These reasons are why injured crash victims need to take their own action to recover the full compensation they deserve,

A street racing injury claim is completely separate from a criminal case, though there can be some overlap in evidence. First, your attorney will file insurance claims, which do not involve the court system at all initially. Often, when there is clear evidence of liability on the part of the street racing driver, an insurance company will offer to settle the case favorably without the need for court involvement. Your attorney can engage in negotiations to obtain a suitable offer directly from the insurance company whenever possible.

If you do need to escalate the matter to a lawsuit, you will not file it in criminal court but in civil court. Your claim will be seeking financial recovery for a civil wrong, which is different from a prosecutor seeking a conviction and penalties against an offender for a crime.

However, if there was a criminal case against one or more liable parties, your lawyer can use information from that case to prove your injury claim. When someone violates a law or regulation for public safety, they are automatically negligent and liable in the eyes of the law. A conviction of a crime is evidence of such a violation, so you would not need additional evidence of negligence if a conviction occurred.

Even if there was not a criminal conviction, you could still prove your injury claim since civil burdens of proof are significantly lower than criminal standards. Your attorney might be able to obtain evidence the prosecuting office has to help prove your claim.

What Is the Value of Your Street Racing Claim?

When you file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, you must demand a certain amount of compensation from the liable parties for your losses. You should never simply guess, as this can result in much less compensation than you deserve, especially if your injuries are severe.

Some people without legal help assume they simply add up their past medical bills and lost hours from work and seek that amount. This usually results in a demand that is far too low.


  • Are you still undergoing medical treatment for your injuries? How long will your treatment last, and how much might it cost?
  • If you are still unable to return to work, how much more income will you lose? Will you be able to go back to your previous job, or will you need to take a lower-paying position or rely on disability?
  • Did your injuries cause you physical or emotional pain and suffering? Did you suffer from PTSD or other mental trauma that required treatment?
  • Are you experiencing permanent impairments, disabilities, or disfigurement from your injuries?
  • Will your injuries prevent you from engaging in activities you loved, such as recreational sports or exercise?

All of these are legitimate losses that most people do not know are compensable. Further, they might have no idea how to go about calculating future or intangible losses.

In rare car accident cases, victims might also receive punitive damages. These damages aim to punish a wrongdoer, and case law in Arizona only allows such damages when the liable party acted with an evil mind.

In street racing cases, the racing driver knew they were putting others in serious danger with their unlawful conduct. Depending on the circumstances, some street racing claims might qualify for a punitive damages award.

One of the most important jobs of our legal team is assessing the value of your claim. We have no idea what a claim might be worth until we dig into the details of your injuries and their effects.

However, we represent many car accident victims and recover extensive settlements and awards for them, including:

  • $1,320,000 after a drunk driver injured a young couple and their nine-month-old daughter
  • $260,000 for herniated discs following a car crash
  • $250,000 for knee and shoulder injuries from a rear-end crash at a red light
  • $245,000 for a brain injury and herniated disc from a parking lot crash
  • $210,000 for a high-speed rear-end collision resulting in severe back injuries

These, of course, are not guarantees of results in your case, but they demonstrate the dedication we have to helping car crash victims recover full compensation.

Do You Need a Lawyer for a Street Racing Case?

If you are like many accident victims, you may not be sure as to whether you need to retain an attorney to represent you. If the other party’s insurance company has conceded liability, it may seem like you can handle your case on your own and that retaining a lawyer will just cost you extra money.

The fact is that all victims of serious accidents should retain an attorney as soon as they can. Auto insurance is a business, and that business involves collecting premiums each month and paying out as little as possible when people make claims – and your claim is no different. The insurance company you are dealing with will do everything possible to pay you as little as they can to settle your case.

Some of the more common tactics auto insurers use to minimize settlements include:

  • Misrepresenting your rights as a victim
  • Making unreasonably low first offers
  • Pressuring you to provide a recorded statement
  • Advising you not to retain a lawyer
  • Making an offer before you have a chance to seek legal counsel

Thankfully, an attorney who has experience handling auto accident claims can protect your rights and ensure that the insurance company doesn’t take advantage of you. In fact, once you have representation from a lawyer, your attorney will handle all communications with the insurance company, allowing you to focus on your recovery and ensuring you do not say anything that could hurt your claim.

Some of the specific ways that a lawyer can help you after a street racing accident include:

  • Identifying all potentially liable parties
  • Evaluating your economic and non-economic losses, including your pain and suffering
  • Filing your claim paperwork and a demand letter
  • Representing you in negotiations with the insurance company
  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf
  • Representing you in court

Can You Afford a Car Accident Lawyer?

So, it’s pretty clear that you need an attorney after a street racing accident – but can you afford one? Lawyers have a reputation for being expensive, and taking on additional expenses after an unexpected accident may seem like a bad idea.

Fortunately, everyone can afford a car accident attorney. At Zanes Law Injury Lawyers, we use a contingency fee arrangement with all of our injured clients, which means we only get paid if we successfully secure a settlement or award on your behalf. Any legal fees that we collect will come out of your settlement, so you never have to pay anything out of pocket. This means that anyone can afford our car accident lawyers after a street racing crash injures them.
