Personal Injury FAQ

Why Should I Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?

The moment you get into a crash with another driver, that motorist’s auto insurance company will start building a case against you—whether you were at fault for the crash or not. Even your own insurance company may try to get you to accept a quick settlement to protect their bottom line. In many cases, especially those involving serious and/or debilitating injuries, the only way to ensure you receive fair and just compensation that will cover all your accident-related expenses is to have an attorney on your side.

How Do I Know If I Have A Wrongful Death Case?

In the state of Arizona, you must be able to prove four elements of negligence in order to have a wrongful death claim: that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care, the defendant breached this duty, the breach contributed to the wrongful death, and the death caused compensable damages that the surviving family members are now seeking to be compensated for.

Will my Personal Injury Claim go to Trial?

Whether or not your case goes to trial depends on numerous factors that are unique to each specific case, such as how cooperative the defendant is, how effective your own lawyer is, and so on. However, the vast majority of personal injury claims—roughly 90%—settle before trial. While this means your case likely won’t make it all the way to court, such matters cannot be determined in advance. If you would like to discuss your caser with an experienced trial attorney to learn more, give us a call.

What Damages Are Available in a Personal Injury Claim?

Any economic or non-economic losses directly related to your accident that you have suffered should be eligible for compensation. While the exact amount a plaintiff is owed varies based on the facts of each unique case, damages that victims tend to be eligible for include: any medical expenses related to the accident, reimbursement for lost wages if you missed any work, property damage costs, punitive damages (albeit in rare cases), and compensation for any pain and suffering endured.

Estate Planning FAQ

What Is an Estate Plan?

An estate plan is a collection of one or more legal documents that state how you want matters such as your health, passing, and division of assets to be handled in the event of your disappearance, incapacitation, or death. There are four main components of an estate plan—a will, healthcare directive, power of attorney, and trust. Our team can help you determine which documents are right for you.

Do I Need an Estate Plan?

There is no law that requires having a legally binding estate plan in place—the decision is a personal choice. However, most people who own property, significant assets (a car, business, etc.), and/or are responsible for providing for a family can benefit from having one in place. Our team is happy to help you determine whether an estate plan is right for you during a consultation with no obligation.

When Should I Hire an Estate Planning Lawyer?

If you are over the age of 18, there is no wrong time to hire an estate planning lawyer. As mentioned above, only you can decide when the time is right to create your estate plan.

In the event your family is going through an estate-related legal matter, such as probate, having a skilled estate planning lawyer on your side can greatly benefit your case.

What is a Probate Lawyer?

Probate is another component of estate planning that can come up after a loved one’s passing. The probate process involves proving a will’s validity, so it can be complicated and even contentious. A probate lawyer will represent you throughout the probate process to ensure you and your loved ones receive their fair share of any assets that have been left behind by the deceased.
