Do I Have A Claim?
Should I File an Arizona Injury Claim?
When you or a loved one is harmed by the negligence of another — whether injured in a car accident, because of nursing home abuse or group home neglect, or as the result of a dog bite — you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
For a personal injury claim to be successful, three elements must be present: injury, liability and coverage. A personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether the three elements are present and whether you should pursue your personal injury claim.
Have You Been Injured in the Scottsdale or Phoenix Area?
Unfortunately, simply being hurt in an accident is not enough. To recover compensation for your injuries, you have to show damages for which you can be compensated. Such damages include medical bills, missed time from work, the loss of or damage to property, and pain and suffering.
And just because you can prove that you have damages, it does not necessarily mean that you should pursue a personal injury claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer will work with you to determine if your losses are sufficient to justify moving forward with your case. In some instances in which the loss from your personal injuries is small, it may not make sense to file an accident lawsuit if you will not recover enough to make up for the time and money spent collecting evidence and pursuing your claim.
Did Someone Else Cause Your Injury?
Were you injured because of the negligence of another? You can pursue a personal injury claim only if a third party can be held responsible for your injury. Even if you may have been partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover partial damages from the other party. At The Breslo Law Firm, we are experienced in determining who caused an accident and who is responsible for paying damages.
Is There Insurance Coverage Available?
Even once you have determined that your injuries resulted in a loss and they were caused due to the negligence of another, the question remains whether the other party has the assets to compensate you for your injuries. In most cases, this means he or she has insurance coverage that can cover your damages. An attorney can help you determine if there is coverage available to actually pay for your damages. Even in uninsured motorist accidents, it may be possible to file a claim under your own insurance policy to have your medical bills paid for.
