- How to File an Arizona Car Accident Lawsuit
Arizona is a growing state in terms of population, and that always leads to more vehicles on the road. When this trend occurs, it also tends to lead to increased risks for everyone who gets behind the wheel and shares these roads with others. Therefore, people tend to suffer from injuries or worse while driving, and when such an incident occurs and it isn’t your fault, you may need to assert your legal rights to pursue a justifiable recovery.
Rather than attempting to handle this situation by yourself, you need to seek the help of an Phoenix car accident lawyer who will be able to help you file a lawsuit if necessary against those who are responsible for your pain, suffering and damages suffered.
One look at the official statistics regarding vehicle accidents kept by the state government shows that this could happen to you or to someone you love. During the calendar year 2008, there were almost 120,000 motor vehicle crashes in Arizona, and 842 of them were fatal. In addition, more than 37,000 accidents led to at least one injury. Of these crashes, almost 1,000 people were killed and more than 56,000 were injured. That computes to almost 3 people per day being killed and 150 people per day injured. These are obviously troubling statistics.
How A Lawyer Can Help
When it comes time to file a lawsuit, you’ll soon realize that you need professional help. As soon as the dust settles after a crash and the insurance claims have been filed, you’ll be hearing from the other driver’s insurance carrier to get a statement of what happened. You need to remember that providing the other side with evidence is never a good idea, and anything you say and/or provide could ultimately come back to harm your overall efforts in pursuing a recovery for the damages you suffered.
Filing a lawsuit can also be a difficult process for someone who has not done so previously. You need to name the proper defendants, file the lawsuit in the proper jurisdiction, make sure that the parties named as defendants are properly served and work through the discovery process such that your case is strengthened. All of these steps require knowledge of the law, the deadlines involved, legal language that needs to be present on court documents and handling any settlement negotiations that generally occur before a lawsuit gets to court.
Handling all of this while you’re recovering from injuries and working through any financial losses can be too much to handle for anyone. Rather than add to your stress after an accident, you need to seek the help of an Arizona car accident lawyer who understands all of the intricacies of filing a car accident lawsuit in Arizona.

My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
