WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY?

Have you been hit by a semi-truck or any other vehicle on the road? Did you trip and fall on a poorly maintained sidewalk outside the grocery store? Or has the neighbor’s dog hurt your child? Legally speaking, a personal injury is classified as any harm done to someone by another’s action, or inaction. This can include a physical injury, harm to one’s reputation, and the denial of a legal right or even an injury to someone’s emotional well-being.

It makes no difference how you have been injured – if it is because of someone else’s negligence, you could be eligible for compensation from you are suffering as a result. A Phoenix personal injury lawyer at Burg Simpson Arizona can help you if you have been a victim. Call us immediately at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form right now.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION

Once you have made that call, you can expect to speak with one of our trained paralegals, who will talk to you before you meet with a Phoenix accident lawyer. This experienced professional will interview you about your case to prepare you and our staff for your first free consultation with an Arizona attorney. This could be a visit to our office or a conference call, depending on how badly you have been hurt. A Phoenix injury attorney from Burg Simpson can meet with you at a medical facility, too, if necessary.

MAKE SURE YOU PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS

While working with your Arizona injury lawyer, do not talk to anyone representing the other party, whether it is another attorney or an insurance company representative. Make sure you do not provide any sort of recorded or written statement. Finally, do not sign anything for anyone, even your own insurance company, without first speaking to your personal injury attorney in Phoenix. Even if someone is offering to pay your medical bills, do not sign or accept anything without first talking to your lawyer. Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury case, there are several types of insurance that can come into play, such as:

  • Homeowners
  • Automobile
  • Life
  • Health
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Disability
  • Commercial property
  • Commercial liability
  • Business owners’

Any given personal injury case can involve one or more of these insurance types, which makes it even more important that you speak with an experienced injury attorney at Burg Simpson Arizona who can act as your informed advocate to protect your rights. Burg Simpson has the knowledge needed to help you through this complex process, so don’t go at it alone.

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH?

Our team of accident injury lawyers and paralegals go through every situation in detail to assess the validity of your specific case. Critical factors can include:

  • The type and severity of the injury and the extent of the treatment that was required
  • The degree of responsibility each party bears
  • The potential economic loss the victim faces, which can vary according to work history, salary and salary history, and their ability to return to work
  • Possible future medical requirements

Finally, evidence of pre-existing medical conditions could mitigate the value of the case, as could the amount of available insurance. To get a better idea of the circumstances surrounding your case, speak with us by calling 602-777-7000.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE?

The sooner you get help from a personal injury lawyer, the better the chances of winning your case. In fact, in Arizona, depending on the type of injury, you could have as little as one year to file your suit. So don’t wait to call a Phoenix car accident lawyer after you’ve been hurt.
