It is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an auto accident to ensure that your claim and interests are protected. Any delay may cause issues: Being able to find the other driver, trouble in getting the driver’s insurance information, difficulty in contacting key eyewitnesses and the possible destruction of scene evidence. A delay may prevent you from being able to collect fair compensation. Also, you have only two (2) years from the date of the auto accident to submit a claim for damages or file a lawsuit. It is imperative that a thorough investigation be done before bringing a claim. Analysis of the accident by experts and an experienced lawyer can be the difference between a fair recovery and no recovery at all.
If your slip-and-fall accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to pursue compensation regardless of whether your injury was minor or more serious. A property owner or landlord is not always responsible for slip-and-fall accidents that occur because of obvious unsafe conditions in Arizona. That being said, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim if the owner or landlord of the property caused the dangerous conditions or allowed the hazardous conditions to persist without providing proper and adequate warnings. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to ensure that you get the best legal representation possible for your personal injury claim. Speak with a skilled and experienced Arizona slip-and-fall lawyer about your accident as soon as possible to make sure that you get the compensation to which you are entitled for your injuries.
When an accident occurs and is caused by negligence, the injured victim can typically file a lawsuit to obtain compensation from the careless person or entity responsible for causing injury. Unfortunately, in some tragic cases, the injuries from an accident are so serious that they result in death. A negligent person cannot escape legal liability for what he has done by killing his victim. Instead, the family members of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim in order to obtain monetary compensation. While no amount of money can ever truly make up for the loss of a family member, wrongful death damages can at least help to ensure that the death doesn’t cause serious financial hardship and can ensure that the person who carelessly caused the death pays the consequences. At Headwind Legal, our Arizona team understands the devastation that comes with the loss of a loved one and we know how important it is to protect a family’s financial future. We will put our legal knowledge, skills and dedication to work for you to provide you with compassionate representation and fierce advocacy for your rights.
You won't find bigger animal lovers than us here at Headwind Legal. That being said, sometimes things go wrong with pets. In Arizona, a dog bite is typically a strict liability situation. This means that the dog owner, with a few exceptions, is always liable for the damage their dog causes. The liability of the dog owner is paid through their renter’s or homeowner’s insurance. It is important to note that in Arizona the statute of limitations for a dog bite case is one year. This is half the time of a typical injury claim’s statute of limitations. This means that you must document your injury as completely and thoroughly as possible before one year’s time from the date of the dog bite. This makes selecting an attorney essential, as you need to have someone who is familiar with dog-bite situations and how to document what may be a permanent injury as a result of someone else’s dog.
A pedestrian being hit by a motor vehicle almost always ends in a very serious injury or even the death of the pedestrian. The liability (who was at fault) is not always as clear as a reasonable person would think. That’s where the team at Headwind Legal comes in, and we urge you to call our office for a free consultation to discuss your legal rights. It is not always the total fault of the pedestrian or the driver, even if the pedestrian was not following all of the rules of the road or the driver was distracted. Arizona law allows claims to be made even when there is comparative negligence, this is when both the driver of the vehicle and the pedestrian are partially at fault. Call our office for a free consultation and let us help you determine whether or not you have a personal injury claim given the facts surrounding the accident.
