Do I Need an Attorney After an Auto Accident?
A collision involving a car, semi-truck, motorcycle, RV, bicycle, or pedestrian can leave a victim with serious injuries. Most auto accident victims have to take off days or weeks from work to recover. On top of missed wages, victims must deal with expensive medical care, pain and suffering. The Arizona civil justice system presents a means by which victims can potentially recover these losses from the at-fault party. Injured parties in Arizona have a two-year statute of limitation to file car accident claims. A Glendale car accident attorney can offer legal advice and help you pursue a claim within the two-year deadline.
Hiring a Glendale personal injury lawyer gives you more power during negotiations with the insurance company. Instead of settling for less than your case is worth, your lawyer will fight for higher compensation on your behalf. A lawyer can even take your case to trial if that is in your best interests, can answer your questions, identify the defendant, and help you fight against a negligent driver or another party while you focus on getting better.

Common Car Accident Injuries
The forces in a motor vehicle accident can cause a range of serious personal injuries to victims. Many end up in hospitals with multiple injuries, as well as permanent disabilities or disfigurements. At The Law Offices of John Phebus, we have helped clients with a variety of common auto accident injuries.
- Multiple bone fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Internal organ injuries
- Loss of limb
- Wrongful death
In general, the more serious the injury, the greater the victim’s personal injury claim will be worth. The courts calculate settlement awards based on the victim’s past and future injury-related expenses. Catastrophic and permanently disabling injuries demand higher compensation than more minor injuries. If you wish to learn an approximate value for your car accident claim, contact us for legal advice. Insurance companies will often offer the least amount of money possible, our attorneys have experience negotiating with insurance adjusters so you receive the compensation that you deserve.
Causes of Car Accidents in Glendale
In our years of legal experience, we have recognized a few common causes of car accidents that arise more frequently than others. Human error and driver negligence are two of the most common contributing factors in fatal accidents. Drivers who engage in the following dangerous practices could be liable for subsequent collisions.
- Driving under the influence
- Drowsy driving
- Red-light running
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Distracted driving
Bad drivers are not the only potential cause of a motor vehicle collision, however. Negligent trucking companies, auto manufacturers, and roadway maintenance crews could also be to blame. Defects in the road, such as potholes or uneven shoulders, could come down to city liability for a car crash. Identifying the liable party and understanding your rights as a crash victim may take a conversation with a personal injury law firm.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Damages are often divided into two categories, economic and non-economic. Economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages from missed work time due to injuries, vehicle repairs and other expenses incurred due to the accident. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, psychological and emotional trauma, and other non-tangible losses. A lawyer will be able to pursue the appropriate damages depending on your case.
