Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer

An Arizona personal injury lawyer is an attorney who specializes in attempting to achieve legal redress for clients that have received a “personal injury” or have been subject to a legal wrong. Under our common law system, a “personal injury” is defined as any injury to a plaintiff's body, mind, or emotions. This is illustrated by the number of high profile personal injury cases that ask for damages based on emotional trauma, such as that received by finding an insect at the bottom of a bowl of soup. These types of civil wrongs are known in legal terms as “torts”. The defendant in a personal injury case may be a person, corporation or governmental organization. The action that the plaintiff is claiming injury from may be intentional or unintentional. By retaining the services of an Arizona personal injury lawyer, plaintiffs can determine whether or not they have a legally viable claim for damages suffered or that may be expected to affect them in the future. The laws affecting torts and personal injury cases are constantly in flux and subject to change based on newly established legal precedents, so it's always a good idea to consult a personal injury lawyer as he or she will have all of the up to date information that will affect your rights under the law.

Types of Incidents

Arizona personal injury lawyers handle cases resulting from various types of personal injuries, tort infringements, and injuries relating to product liability. There are many types of personal injuries that fall under the category of tort law. Some of these include individual and commercial transportation accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice injuries such as surgical errors, and other similar forms of negligence and gross negligence. Product liability cases have received much publicity in recent years, mainly due to the huge amount of damages won in class action suits as well as in unusual cases such as burns received from overly hot coffee served at a fast food franchise. Popular films like “Erin Brockovitch” have also brought personal injury lawyers and lawsuits to the public consciousness. Although the Hollywood treatment necessarily simplifies many aspects of personal injury cases, rarely are such issues black and white, as demonstrated by a number of personal injury lawsuits which have been ongoing for decades (dealing with Asbestos and Tobacco, to name just two)

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer in Arizona

Arizona personal injury lawyers can be very eager to take on your case if they feel it has merit due to their expected share in any award or settlement that may be forthcoming. Oftentimes they will seek out potential claimants in an effort to broaden the base of the claimant pool in hopes of receiving the largest possible settlement. Most Arizona law firms have either a personal injury law department or a specialist in this type of law. You can find law firms in your local Yellow Pages, telephone directory or online via the Internet. Many personal injury lawyers in Arizona offer free initial consultations to establish your legal options.
