Why Hire our Personal Injury Law Firm?
There are many reasons to choose the Law Offices of John Phebus if you have been injured in an accident in Glendale or Peoria, Arizona:
- We have built a reputation as a trusted law firm in Arizona.
- We have more than 20 years of legal experience in a variety of practice areas.
- We believe in personal care, individual attention, and open communication.
- We achieve results for clients through aggressive litigation tactics.
- We only charge for our services if we win.
Depending on the factors surrounding the accident, individuals can suffer serious, life-altering injuries. No matter the severity of your injury, we will aggressively fight to recover the maximum compensation possible for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering. Count on our personal injury firm to fight for you while you focus on more important things — like getting healthy. At The Law Offices of John Phebus, our Glendale personal injury attorneys have more than 20 years of experience guiding clients through the legal process of recovering money after an accident. After carefully investigating the accident — including visiting the accident site to preserve evidence, interviewing witnesses and reviewing your medical records — we will negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier to reach a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, we are confident in our ability to represent you in court. Count on us to aggressively protect your best interests.
Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer in Peoria?
After a car accident, slip and fall, or other personal injury accident, one of your first phone calls will be to an insurance company. You will file your injury claim with the insurance company of the at-fault party if you know who this party is. A Glendale personal injury lawyer at our law office can help you determine the defendant, if necessary. A skilled attorney can also take over communications with insurance claims adjusters, who may try to convince you to settle for less than the true value of your case. Keep in mind that the insurance companies are in business to take money, not pay it out! We will not let the insurance company take advantage of you, which is exactly what most insurance companies will try to do when an accident victim is not represented by a personal injury law firm. Hiring a personal injury attorney in Peoria can help you maximize your financial recovery while you focus on physical healing.
Another reason to hire The Law Offices of John Phebus is because of our ability to negotiate the liens that often come with personal injury cases. A lien is a demand for repayment that may be placed against your personal injury case. Healthcare providers often pay for your medical care but they are entitled to reimbursement for part or all of your medical bills they paid for. Our attorneys will negotiate to reduce the amount you owe and can often reduce those liens by over 90%. This is crucial as it allows you to keep more of the settlement money for you instead of having to repay the liens.

Do You Have a Lawsuit?
Filing a personal injury claim in Arizona and pursuing compensation takes having all the elements of a sound case. As a personal injury victim, it is your task to prove someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to your injuries. Having these elements is your burden of proof to qualify for compensation through an insurance settlement or personal injury lawsuit. Four main elements are necessary for every injury case.
- Someone owed the victim a duty of care.
- That person breached the duty of care to the victim.
- The breach of duty caused the victim’s injuries.
- The victim suffered damages as a result.
Proving a breach of duty is often the most difficult aspect of a personal injury claim. A breach of duty can be any negligent or reckless act that fails to fulfill the defendant’s duty of care to the plaintiff. Evidence of a breach of duty may come down to photographs of the accident, statements from witnesses, medical records, or other types of documentation.

Time Limit to File a Personal Injury Claim in Arizona
Arizona has something called a “statute of limitations”, which is a time limit on when you can file a personal injury claim. In Arizona, the time to file is two years from the date of the accident or the date you discovered the injury. If the claim is against the city, county or state, the time limits are even shorter. Missing the deadline for filing could mean you lose any chance of recovering money for the accident. For this reason, it’s important to call our office so you can find out what your legal options are and how we can help you.
