Scottsdale Personal Injury Attorney
A personal injury case is really about one thing—that is delivering justice to someone who has been injured due to the fault of someone else. It is not necessarily about punishing the at-fault party (although sometimes that certainly is warranted and will be accomplished). It is more about making sure the individual harmed has everything he or she needs to face the future in light of the injuries sustained. At Scottsdale Injury Lawyers, our sole focus is obtaining as much compensation as possible for our clients so they can move on with their lives without financial worries.
Scottsdale Injury Lawyers, LLC handles any case where someone was injured due to the neglect or wrongdoing of another. Usually these cases involve a substantial physical injury, but sometimes cases only involve financial and emotional injuries instead. Although our firm is capable of handling a variety of matters (from contract disputes to fraud), we specialize and focus on personal injury and civil rights cases.
The most common cases we handle in our personal injury division include: car accidents, bicycle accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, trip/slip and fall, premises liability, product defect, dog bite, animal attack, negligent security, assault and battery.
A personal injury case is also about fundamental fairness. It allows someone who was hurt to seek out what he or she needs to make a full recovery. Although, often times the injured victim may never fully recover. He or she may have physical limitations, permanent disabilities and mental scarring that will last a lifetime. In those situations, monetary compensation will never make that person whole. However, it will afford him or her the resources needed to cope and provide opportunities that allow that individual to make the most of the new life he or she will face in the future.
Naturally, the at-fault party (usually through his or her insurance company) does not want to pay what is fair or fully owed. The American legal system provides a great check for those who do not want to treat others fairly. By filing a lawsuit, an injury victim has the power to hold the other side fully accountable for their actions. The insurance companies and at-fault parties cannot then dictate what is fair and what they should or should not pay. That is left to the power of the people who will sit as the judge and jury.
In the typical personal injury case, an injured party is entitled to his or her damages sustained. The law describes two general categories of damages—economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include damages to which an exact dollar amount can be fixed and calculated with fair certainty. These include: past medical expenses, future medical expenses, past lost earnings, future lost earnings, damaged property and other expenses incurred as a result of the incident or injury. Non-economic damages include damages to which there is no exact ascertainable dollar amount, but which one has to decide. These include past and future: pain, suffering, discomfort, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, anxiety, depression, etc.
If you or a loved one has a personal injury case, it is essential that you hire an attorney who believes in your case, is willing to fight for every dollar and that will put in the work to maximize your recovery.
