Accidents and injuries happen every day in Arizona. Over 120,000 car accidents with injuries occurred in Arizona in 2021 alone, with over 1,000 fatalities. While car accidents account for the majority of personal injuries, they are many other causes of serious injuries. Other common causes of personal injuries in Glendale include:

These are common examples of injuries that often occur as the fault of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing.

Establishing Liability in a Glendale Personal Injury Case

Often our clients put off taking action to recover their losses after a personal injury because they don’t know where to begin when it comes to navigating Arizona’s complex legal system, including how to prove that someone else was at fault in their accident. Insurance representatives, claims adjusters, and medical billing calls may have you wondering where to turn or how to focus on your own physical recovery. The lawyers at Hastings & Hastings PC have over 90 years of combined experience in navigating personal injury law in Glendale and throughout Arizona. Our experienced team understands how to investigate each unique case in order to prove liability for the person or entity who caused your injury. In order to prove liability in Arizona, our Glendale personal injury attorneys know how to show the following legal requirements:

  • That the defendant owed you a duty of care, such as a driver’s duty to follow all traffic laws to keep others safe on the roads, or a store owner owed patrons a duty of care to keep his/or her premises safe from potential hazards
  • That the defendant breached their duty of care through their actions or inaction and committed an act of negligence or wrongdoing
  • That the breach of duty of care directly caused your injury
  • That your injury resulted in significant economic and non-economic damages

Once our experienced legal team collects evidence from police reports, medical records, and witness testimony in your case, we will advocate strongly on your behalf so you can gain the compensation you need to move forward toward recovery.

What Damages Can You Gain for a Personal Injury Claim in Arizona?

Although nothing can “undo” an injury, by proving fault in an accident, the injured party can recover compensation for the damages they’ve suffered as a result. Arizona acknowledges two types of damages in personal injury cases, economic and non-economic. Economic damages include the following:

  • Medical expenses and any future medical expenses for additional or ongoing treatment for your injury
  • Lost wages and future earnings loss
  • Diminished capacity for earning in the future in the case of serious disabilities resulting from the injury

While it’s often easier to calculate financial losses, non-economic damages also have a tremendous impact on personal injury victims, often more so than financial damages. If you or a loved one has been injured through the fault of another you deserve compensation for the following non-economic damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of consortium (Loss of the ability to enjoy a fulfilling emotional and physical relationship with a loved one, or to continue the support, and care of your children)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life in the event of permanent disability
  • Disfigurement or scarring

With the most serious injuries, personal injury cases may become wrongful death cases, in which case a family member deserves compensation for their devastating losses.

Will Your Personal Injury Claim End in Court?

The majority of personal injury cases settle out of court. Hastings & Hastings PC enjoys a long history of successful personal injury claims in the Glendale area and throughout Arizona. Our reputation and resources help us to successfully draft compelling demand letters on behalf of our clients to insurance companies, often leading to substantial settlements without court litigation. However, our experienced personal injury lawyers are more than willing to advocate aggressively for your case in court if necessary to maximize your chance of gaining the full compensation you deserve for the injury you’ve suffered and its impact on your life.

What a Glendale Personal Injury Lawyer Can do For You
