Arizona Medical Expenses and Costs
Personal injury claims are no stranger to the United States. In fact, across the U.S. and in the state of Arizona, thousands of personal injury claims are made each and every day. Due to the aging population in the U.S. and the growing number of cities with dense populaces, more and more personal injuries and accidents are occurring in 2012 than ever before.
While auto accidents are often the most common form on personal injury claims, a wide variety of situations fall under the personal injury category. Workplace accidents, defective products and drugs, medical malpractice and negligence, insurance disputes, in addition to quite a few others, all account for a type of personal injury.
In general, personal injury is a legal term used to describe any injury to the mind, body, or emotions. Personal injury differs from a situation where property is damaged. Typically, personal injury claims involve at least two parties: the injured party and the negligent party. When a negligent act causes some form of harm to the body, mind, or emotions, compensation is often available through litigation in proving that the negligent party was at-fault and the cause of any following injuries.
Compensation is usually broken up dependent upon different types of damages. Lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering are the most common forms of damages filed. While establishing the monetary amount of compensation in a personal injury claim, the dollar value assigned to cover the costs of medical expenses often varies based upon the severity of the injury.

General Types of Damages
Following an accident, victims are often overwhelmed with a number of issues to take care of and deal with in regard to their health, their property, and their insurance coverage. Medical expenses and costs are often the first thing that comes to mind when a personal injury of some kind occurs. While these costs are certainly relevant, there are quite a few additional costs that the negligent party may be responsible for paying.
In terms of immediate economic damages, those who have caused an accident of some kind may be responsible for paying lost wages, medical bills and associated expenses, costs for a rental car, pain, suffering, distress, and humiliation.
