Car Accidents in Arizona

Car accidents can be a traumatic experience, but getting help shouldn’t be. In 2022, there were 119,991 total car crashes reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation. Of these car accidents, 35,878 resulted in injury. 

Our car accident lawyers understand that auto accidents can have a lasting impact on your life. That’s why we offer our clients all of our personal resources, time, and energy needed to fully investigate and research your car accident claim.

We support clients in all the following types of common accidents:

Rear-end accidents – The most common manner of car accidents in Arizona is rear-ending another driver, which often leads to medical bills from visiting chiropractors and other pain specialists. We support clients in getting the care and compensation they deserve.

Pedestrian Accidents – We also offer services for less common, but increasing auto pedestrian accidents. The number of pedestrians getting hit by cars is growing at an alarming rate. In 2022 alone, there were a shocking 1,888 pedestrian-involved crashes. With the accumulation of distractions for drivers, being a pedestrian on the street is becoming more dangerous. Our lawyers will work tirelessly to seek restitution for clients involved in a collision as a pedestrian.

Hit-and-run accidents – Drivers leaving the scene of an accident is becoming far too common. We represent clients involved in hit-and-run cases to track down the driver who left the scene and secure a positive outcome.

These are just some of the common accidents that can lead to injury—we represent individuals involved in all these types of accidents and more. You can ask anyone else who has been injured in a car accident, the road to recovery can be long and frustrating. Our team is here to provide some peace of mind in the process so you can more comfortably and confidently move forward.

Common Injuries Associated with Car Accidents

A car accident injury can cause significant pain and suffering and emotional distress. The type of injury can also greatly affect your case and influence the damages you pursue.

Some of the common injuries associated with car accidents include:

  • Whiplash – Whiplash is a neck injury that results from a rapid back and forth movement of the neck. It can lead to severe discomfort and be difficult to discover right away.
  • Head injuries – A strong collision can cause a significant head injury if the driver hits the steering wheel or windshield. Head injuries can cause significant pain and suffering and have long-term consequences.
  • Fractures – Fractures to the ribs, pelvis, arms, and legs are common in car accidents due to the force of the impact of a crash.
  • Back injuries – The rapid movement of an impact makes back injuries common in crashes, which can lead to chronic pain and significantly affect quality of life.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Arizona, it’s important to act as soon as possible to seek restitution. Keep in mind there is a 2-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases in the state of Arizona. However, there is an exception to this if you do not discover the injuries until a later date, causing the statute of limitations to begin at that time.

In any situation, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you suspect you’ve been injured. Our team of Arizona car accident lawyers at JacksonWhite Law is here to represent you and recover the appropriate damages for your injuries.

What Damages Can Be Recovered?

A car accident injury can have a significant impact on one’s life, so there are a variety of damages that can be recovered depending on the case. The damages you can pursue include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are those that involve compensation for tangible economic losses, while non-economic damages include those that are more difficult to measure. 

The following economic damages can be recovered:

  • Medical expenses – Of course, if your injury led to you needing hospital time or doctor’s visits for treatment, the responsible party will be liable for reimbursing you for these costs.
  • Lost wages – If an injury keeps you out of work for any period of time, you can receive damages for any wages you would have otherwise made during that time.
  • Property damage – In addition to your injuries, you can also seek compensation for damage to your motor vehicle or other property that occurred as a result of an accident. This can include car repairs as well as coverage for a rental vehicle.

Meanwhile, non-economic damages you can pursue include:

  • Pain and suffering Pain and suffering covers the associated physical injuries in an accident. Financial amounts depend on the level of impact the pain and suffering has on the individual’s life.
  • Emotional distress – Emotional distress is the psychological difficulties experienced by an individual injured in a car accident. A lawyer can help negotiate a reasonable amount of compensation for this distress.

Unfortunately, coming up with a dollar amount for all of these damages can be a complicated affair, and too many times, both sides can’t agree on a fair compensation amount, which is why a premier Arizona car accident attorney is so crucial to your case.

Hiring an Arizona car accident lawyer increases your chances of success in recovering damages. Our team at JacksonWhite Law will work tirelessly to secure the appropriate amount for you and your case to offer peace of mind on your road to recovery.
