Why Work With a Lawyer?

A car insurance claim should be a simple and straightforward way to recover monetary benefits for your property damages and medical bills. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Insurance companies receive thousands of claims each year. To minimize their expenditures and maximize profits, insurance companies use tactics to convince clients to settle for as little as possible. It may take representation from a lawyer to force an insurance company to offer a reasonable settlement. A lawyer will know what negotiation tactics to use against a powerful insurance corporation. If your case needs to go to trial for a positive outcome, your lawyer can handle litigation for you as well.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Mesa, AZ?

Car accidents are a main cause of unintentional injuries and related fatalities in Arizona. Every year, thousands of victims end up in hospitals throughout Arizona with crash-related injuries. The Arizona Department of Transportation reported 129,750 car accidents (36,926 injury and 911 fatal) in 2019 alone. Collisions occur more often in Arizona’s cities than its rural areas. Identifying the cause of your wreck is one of the first steps toward obtaining compensation.

  • Drunk driver
  • Distracted driver
  • Reckless or speeding driver
  • Broken traffic rule
  • Driver tailgating or following too closely
  • Tired driver
  • Driver running a red light
  • Road defect
  • Auto part liability

The cause of your Mesa car accident will point to the identity of the defendant or at-fault party. In Arizona, the driver or party who caused the car accident will owe other victims compensation for their damages. All drivers in Arizona have to maintain minimum amounts of car insurance to pay these costs. Some cases involve defendants who are not the other driver, or multiple defendants. A lawyer from David Shapiro Law, PLLC can analyze your car accident case to determine fault and who to name as the defendant(s).

Arizona Car Accident Laws

After a car accident, injured victims will face hurdles during the claims process. Injured drivers and passengers will have to deal with Arizona’s auto accident laws before obtaining fair compensation for their injuries. Car accident laws change from state to state. A car accident attorney can break down the laws in your state, as well as explain how they might impact your case. In the meantime, learn a few of the most essential car accident laws in Arizona.

  • Fault insurance law. Liability for a car crash in Arizona will go to the driver or party most at fault for causing the collision. This is different from the insurance process in a no-fault state, which requires victims to file first-party claims regardless of fault. Fault states allow you to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party if desired.
  • Pure comparative negligence law. The comparative negligence law applies to cases in which the defendant alleges the plaintiff’s fault for the accident. If you are partially to blame for the car accident, the courts may reduce your compensation accordingly. Fifteen percent of fault, for example, would diminish your award by the same percentage.
  • Time limit to file a lawsuit. If you would rather hold the driver accountable in a lawsuit than an insurance settlement, you have no more than two years to bring your cause of action with the county courts. This is Arizona’s statute of limitations, which comes with only a few exceptions. Act quickly to save yourself from missing the deadline.

These are three of the most important general laws that may apply to your car accident case in Mesa. Others could include product liability laws for a defective car part or tort claim laws for a case against a government entity. David Shapiro and his team can explain all the relevant laws for your particular insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. Then, he can navigate them for you in pursuit of maximum financial compensation.

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

Just as a car accident can cause thousands of dollars in damages, a successful personal injury claim could reimburse you for the property repairs, hospital bills, lost wages, and other losses connected to your crash. The value of your claim is an important matter for your family. It could decide your financial future. We can provide an estimate of how much we believe your car accident case is worth during a free consultation. All car accident claims, however, provide the opportunity to recover economic and non-economic damages in general. These can include out-of-pocket costs as well as physical pain and emotional suffering.
