Did you or a loved one get seriously injured? Read these 3 personal injury questions that we are often asked, then call our Gilbert lawyers.
1. How do I choose the best personal injury attorney in Arizona?
If you’re injured in Arizona, a common question is how do you choose the best personal injury attorney for you? That’s a common question that comes up when clients call our office. The other day, a client called our office and spoke to one of our attorneys. This is what our attorney explained, “Yes, you can choose one of those attorneys that is on the big billboards and stuff, and typically, what’s going to happen is you’re going to be in a machine, in a factory. You start at one end. They send you to the chiropractor. You get spit out at the other end. You get a few dollars in your pocket, and they go onto the next case.” If that’s the kind of representation you want, have at it, but as the attorney explained, “That’s not what we do here. We’re going to give you individualized attention and especially focus on the particular injuries you have.”
Most clients are going to be better off by seeing medical specialists like an orthopedic surgeon, neurologist, things like that. If you see a chiropractor, insurance companies value those cases differently. We’re aware of that. We get you the best medical care, which by the way, ends up getting you the most compensation for pain and suffering, and that’s a win for our clients and for us. Another important thing to do, as the attorney explained is to check their Google reviews because that’ll tell you a lot. Then beyond that, is the firm willing to go after the insurance company, or will they settle cheap? All those things, you want to confirm. If you can, even talk to past clients, get references, then you know you’ve made the right choice. Call us anytime. The call is free. The information is free. We’re here to help you.
2. How do I determine the value of my personal injury case?
The question often comes up, in Arizona how do you determine what my case is worth? Potential clients call our office, our injury law firm, and ask that question often. The other day, in fact, one of our attorneys responded to that question and said this. “There is no magic formula even though everyone or a lot of people have heard there is. Is it three times my medical bills, five times, ten times, two and a half times, what’s the formula, everyone wants to know?” The formula with insurance adjusters is fairly simple: We’re going to pay the least amount we can to settle your case. The most important thing at the beginning, as the attorney explained to the potential client, is what, that we get you to the best medical care.
There’s nothing wrong with your neighborhood chiropractor, but we will get you to top medical specialists like orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, neurosurgeons— anyone who can really analyze your case. You’re getting headaches. You have concussions. If you don’t get that diagnosed and documented, the insurance adjuster is going to say it’s no big deal and offer you a small lump sum like $500. When we send you to the right experts, we prove that it’s a massive concussion that can require lifetime care. That can be the difference between $500 and millions of dollars potentially. That’s why it’s so important that you call us. Let us at least analyze your situation. One of our attorneys will. We’ll refer you to top medical experts even if you still haven’t decided to hire us. We just do that to help you as a public service. Remember that the call is free. The information is free. It’s invaluable even though it doesn’t cost you anything. We are here to help you.
3. What are the steps to filing a personal injury lawsuit?
The question comes up, what are the steps for a personal injury lawsuit in Arizona? The other day, a potential client called our office, spoke to one of our attorneys, and asked that very question. Here’s what the attorney said. The first thing you need to be aware of is that in our office, 98% of all our cases are settled without filing a lawsuit and even a higher percentage without going to court. Why is that? We make sure that we send you to top doctors like orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, not just your corner chiropractor. There’s nothing wrong with chiropractors, but they’re not valued the same by insurance adjusters. We prepare that case, get you the best medical care, and then document it, so the insurance company looks at that and goes, hey, we’re probably better off on settling that case.
In the event that a lawsuit does need to be filed, you want to have a firm that has the capability to show the insurance company that they’re serious. Our managing attorney has 66 jury trials. Another one of our attorneys has lots of trial experience. Insurance companies know that. The steps you need to do is you need to call an injury law firm, discuss your case at least over the phone, find out what the time period is that you have to do something. You never want to go past that because all your claim can go up in smoke. Find out what mistakes people commonly make if they try to handle it on their own. We’ll tell you over the phone for free. Then if you want to try it on your own, hey, that’s fine. Our clients go hey, no I’m better off getting the experts. Turn it over to them, and let them handle it, and we love to do that. Anyway, at least call get some free help. The call is free. The information is free. We’re here to help you.
