Phoenix Car Accident Attorneys

Rely on 50+ Years of Collective Legal Experience

Head-On Collision

There are approximately 127,000 traffic collisions in Arizona each year. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, these accidents resulted in 1,010 fatalities and 53,376 reported injuries in 2018. In other words, about 146 people are injured by reckless, distracted, and intoxicated motorists every day. When a severe accident occurs, the survivors often sustain debilitating and life-changing injuries that necessitate costly and ongoing medical treatments. But how can these victims keep up with their treatments programs if they can’t even afford the accompanying medical bills? Worse, what if their injuries prevent them from holding gainful employment? Oftentimes, a car accident survivor’s only option is to pursue monetary damages by filing a claim against the negligent driver.

Types of Car Accidents

Statistically, the average American driver will be involved in 3-4 traffic collisions throughout their life. Unfortunately, most car accidents are the result of human error and driver negligence.

The most common types of auto accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Vehicle rollovers
  • Weather-related incidents
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Side-impact collisions
  • Underride accidents.

To secure a favorable case result, your legal team needs to prove 3 critical facts: the defendant was participating in negligent driving behaviors; these actions caused or contributed to the accident; you sustained physical injuries and/or suffered financial losses because of their actions. By investigating your case, we can collect evidence and develop a comprehensive litigation strategy that proves the defending party is responsible for your physical and financial condition.

An at-fault driver can be held legally accountable for the following behaviors:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or talking on the phone
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to signal
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failing to yield
  • Fatigued driving
  • Illegal turns and u-turns

Steps to Take After a Car Accident in Arizona

Drivers in Arizona owe a duty of care to other motorists, bicyclists, “scooterists,” and pedestrians. In other words, drivers are expected to exercise reasonable care and act in consideration of the law while operating a motor vehicle. However, when drivers ignore this principle, it results in nearly 130,000 accidents a year.

Surviving a car accident is often a confusing, terrifying, and stressful experience. Even so, there are certain steps you must take in the aftermath of the collision to protect your right to damages. Of course, our firm can provide assistance if your injuries prevent you from completing these steps.

You can protect your claim by following these 15 steps after a car accident:

  1. Pull over your vehicle, if possible.
  2. Make sure all drivers and passengers are safe.
  3. Call 911 and request emergency assistance.
  4. Exchange insurance information with the other driver(s).
  5. Don’t apologize or admit/imply fault for the accident.
  6. Use your cell phone to take pictures of the crash site, the damages vehicles, and your injuries.
  7. Write down witness information, including their names and phone numbers.
  8. Help the police complete the accident report.
  9. Seek immediate medical attention, even if your injuries appear to be “minor.”
  10. Request copies of the accident report and your medical record.
  11. Report the accident to your insurance company.
  12. Don’t accept calls from the defendant’ insurance provider unless you have a lawyer present.
  13. Keep a record of any accident-related expenses (receipts, statements, etc.).
  14. Refrain from posting about the accident on your social media accounts.
  15. Schedule a case evaluation with a car accident attorney.

It’s important to remember that the defendant’s insurance company is not your friend. Like any business, their priority is making and saving money – and your case can certainly cost them money. To save their company money, adjusters have been known to record phone calls and then manipulate a plaintiff into making a statement that damages their lawsuit. When this tactic doesn’t work, the company moves onto the next: offering a lowball settlement and hoping the inexperienced plaintiff will accept it. For these reasons and more, it’s imperative that you retain the services of a qualified attorney who can protect your interests and maximize your claim.

Compensation for the Diminished Value of Your Vehicle

If you suffer an injury, you are entitled to claim compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering (past and future), lost wages, and permanent injury or disfigurement. Our attorneys recognize the importance of helping a client recover compensation not only for their personal injury claim, but also for the loss of use of their automobile and, in some cases, diminished value if their car is repaired.

We are one of the few firms that pursue our clients’ diminished value claims. You sustain a diminished value (or accelerated depreciation) after an accident because your vehicle is worthless on the open market after the crash than before the crash, even after being repaired. We also assist you in many other ways.

We are proud to offer our skilled services to Phoenix residents in both Spanish and English! Call today at (602) 483-6114 to get started with our team.

Auto Insurance Claim Do’s & Don’ts

When you make an auto insurance claim, proceed with care. Your conversations with an insurance company are generally recorded and often designed to diminish the amount of monetary compensation you receive. Remember, the insurance company records your conversation so anything said is essentially set in stone. Even off-the-record comments will be documented to your disadvantage.

DO: Report your accident to your insurance company

While you may be afraid to speak to your insurance company, it is very important that you waste no time in reporting the accident. The insurance company might try to use this information against you, implying that your accident and injuries aren't that serious.

DO: See a doctor as soon as you can

Injuries that result from a car accident often don't show symptoms for 24-48 hours. This is often because of adrenaline and hyperactive emotions. That's why it's important to see a medical professional within a couple of days after the accident. Just because you don't feel hurt, doesn't mean you aren't. Having conclusive medical evidence of your injury is also essential to building a strong case for your claim.

DO: Keep a detailed account of the accident

Police reports and witness statements are important, but we also recommend keeping a personal account of your side of the story. Some car accident insurance claims take months or longer to resolve, and in that time your memory might fade. Write down the details of your accident immediately, while your memory is fresh so that you and your attorney can reference it later.

DON'T: Admit fault while giving your statement

Whether it's your statement to the police or your insurance agent, avoid admitting fault to the accident. Keep to the facts and only answer questions asked of you, to avoid giving statements that might be used against you later

DON'T: Take an early settlement

Insurance companies want to avoid paying out more than they have to. As such, they will attempt to convince you to accept the first settlement they offer. This is almost always a low ball offer. Once you accept the settlement you cannot pursue more compensation later, even if you have further expenses. Speak to an auto accident lawyer at Alex & Associates first, to make sure you are receiving maximum compensation

Quality Representation from Experienced Attorneys

If you or a member of your family has suffered a car accident injury, attorneys and staff at our law firm understand how overwhelming it may seem to make decisions regarding claims for compensation while dealing with medical and financial issues. We hope the information below is helpful. However, because every situation is unique, it is important that you consult with a well-qualified personal injury litigation attorney about your claim.

Uninsured & Underinsured Motorists Insurance

When the other driver, irresponsibly, has no car insurance (or has insufficient car insurance) to compensate you for your injuries, you can present a claim with your own insurance company under your uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage. This claim with your insurance company does not affect your insurance premiums. This is important coverage that you pay a premium for and should be used to compensate you when the other driver has no insurance or too little insurance.

No-Fault Insurance

In some cases, no-fault insurance might apply, especially with out-of-state motorists. No-fault auto insurance allows the driver to collect from his or her insurance company regardless of who was at fault. Not every state has no-fault insurance, but those that do have extremely narrow laws that determine how much, when, and for how long the injured party can receive insurance.

Consult with a personal injury attorney to discuss how your state views fault and to determine how the laws may affect your right to recover damages for a car accident injury.
