Phoenix Car Accident Lawyer Protecting Auto Accident Victims
Car accidents are an everyday part of life. In Phoenix and across the nation, people are seriously injured on a daily basis in automobile accidents that are not their fault. While countless factors ranging from speeding, to drunk driving, to poor weather conditions can cause car accidents, distracted driving is the leading cause of motor vehicle crashes in the United States. Whether the driver is texting, eating, talking on a cell phone or engaging in other activities that take his or her eyes off of the road, distracted driving is a very serious problem that injures thousands of innocent people each year.
Arizona Follows the Comparative Negligence Rule
If you or someone you care about has been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to speak with an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible. Arizona follows the doctrine of comparative negligence in car accident cases, which means that if your accident took place in Arizona your degree of fault can reduce your recovery. Unfortunately, insurance companies know far too well how to take advantage of Arizona’s comparative negligence laws. When you are hurt in a car crash they will do everything in their power to prove that you were at least partially at fault for the accident so they can reduce the money paid to you.
The attorneys at Hirsch & Lyon are very familiar with how automobile insurance companies operate. When a car crash happens, our objective is to fully protect and preserve our clients’ legal rights. From the moment you hire us, we will undertake a thorough investigation of the accident – photographing the scene, measuring skid marks and collecting all other physical evidence that may be critical to the success of your case. We understand that you are counting on us, and we will do all that we can to make sure you receive full and fair compensation for your medical care, lost wages and other expenses associated with your accident.
Helping Car Accident Victims Get Back on the Road
Drivers are often deprived of transportation when a car accident occurs. This can be devastating when you have a job and other responsibilities that require the use of a vehicle. When you hire our firm, we will carefully review your insurance contract to determine whether rental car coverage may be available under the terms of your policy. We will also contact the insurance company of the at-fault driver to secure substitute transportation for you. If the at-fault driver’s insurance company refuses to provide you with a rental car, we will initiate a claim for the loss of use of your vehicle until you are paid in full for the property damage to your car and your accident case is resolved.
People who are seriously injured in car accidents can be off from work for a very long time, placing a tremendous financial strain upon their families. We know that when medical and other bills start pouring in, accident victims are often tempted to take offers from companies advertising cash advances on auto accident settlements. While our firm cautions clients from acting upon such offers, we can work with you to develop a plan to help you meet your financial obligations while waiting for a fair settlement offer from the insurance company.
