Motor vehicle accidents result in property damage, injury, and even loss of life. These accidents can occur because of driver error, negligence, or inattention, manufacturing defects, unsafe road conditions, and dangerous weather (including dust storms in Arizona).
A crash can turn a normal day into a life-changing event. We understand.
When an accident results in serious injury or even death, we are there to represent the injured and their families against those responsible. We work hard to seek that just compensation is paid.
Identifying All Responsible Parties
If you have been involved in an auto accident, it may be clear to you that the other driver is responsible. In many cases, there may be others who are also responsible, including other drivers or those responsible for ensuring safe road conditions.
An accident may have occurred because of a defective product, such as in the case where a defective tire on another vehicle resulted in a crash. In this case, multiple parties may be liable – the auto manufacturer, the tire company, and possibly even a tire installer.
If you were not adequately protected in an accident because of a defective product, such as a defective seat belt or air bag, or if the protective cage of a car, truck, or SUV did not perform properly, you may also have a cause of action against the vehicle manufacturer.
It’s our role as your attorneys to thoroughly investigate all factors contributing to an accident and the injuries suffered, and then to hold all of those responsible for their share of the damages caused.
Proving Fault – Why It’s Important to Hire an Arizona Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident, you can expect that the defendants, their insurance companies, their lawyers, their experts, and their accident investigators will work hard to avoid liability. It’s critical if you’ve been in an accident to consult with an accident lawyer as soon as possible so that important evidence may be preserved.
When an accident occurs, there may be critical evidence that needs to be obtained or secured as soon as possible so that it is not damaged.
Defendants or their insurance companies may take possession of vehicles and have them scrapped. Sometimes having access to these vehicles may be important in proving your case; however, if these vehicles are sent to a scrap yard and cannot be examined, this evidence may be lost.
As your attorneys, we will seek to obtain and preserve important evidence that may help prove your case. If necessary, we can attain a temporary restraining order from the court preventing the destruction of important evidence. Without this evidence, your case may be substantially weakened.
In many accidents, we will hire experts, including accident reconstructionists to examine the site of the crash scene and to re-create a computer animation or other evidence detailing important aspects of the accident. These exhibits can also be critical in explaining to a jury how your accident occurred.
For more information about how we will work diligently to prove your case, please call us for a free consultation. There is no fee for this consultation and there are no fees to us unless and until we recover damages for you.
