Personal Injury Defined
Imagine getting in your car at the end of a very long day. You begin your normal route back to your home. While patiently sitting at a red light, you take in a deep breath and breathe out the stress of the day then BAM. Someone has hit you from the back. There was no way for you to see it or prevent it. You were sitting in your car engaging in lawful behaviour. The person who hit you is known as the negligent party. The at-fault driver injured you while engaging in negligent behaviour. Personal injury is when a person is injured as a result of someone’s or some party’s behaviour.
Getting hurt can happen at any time and in any place. Car accidents are the most common, but other areas of personal injury include premises liability or wrongful death. These areas are umbrella terms for more specific situations like DUI accidents, dog attacks, or slip and falls. In order to get a better understanding of where your situation fits, speaking with our Phoenix Personal Injury Attorneys can provide you with a better understanding.
What’s the statute of limitations?
Just because you were injured does not mean you are ready to face the trauma of your accident again. Unfortunately, the only way to get justice is to relive the incident for your attorney and the court. Depending on the severity of your situation this can be really hard for victims to do. However, finding justice is the best way to hold the at-fault person accountable. A statute of limitation is the length of time one has to file a suit. For most accidents, a person has two years from the date of the injury to file a suit. However, it differs depending on the kind of incident. You may think that one or two years is a long time, but it takes time to accumulate and organize the amount of documentation needed to prove that you have a case.
If you choose to work with our seasoned professional attorneys, we will hold your hand through the whole process.
Who pays for the medical bills, loss of income, and other bills?
Simply, the at-fault person. The whole point of filing a suit is not only to get justice but to get the compensation you need to get through your injury. It wasn’t your negligent behaviour that got you injured. It was his or her negligent behaviour. He or she should pay and our Phoenix Personal Injury Attorneys know how to make it happen.
