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.
At Phillips Law Group, we believe that those negligent parties must be held accountable for their actions and the damages that those actions cause to victims. If you or a loved one has been injured in an Arizona accident which required medical expenses, a Phoenix injury attorney is here to guide you throughout the litigation process.

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.
The ability to recover funds for these losses will vary dependent upon many factors. However, one of the most critical factors involves a Phoenix injury attorney. Without proper representation, accident victims run the risk of being taken advantage by the negligent party, their insurance company, and their litigation team.
Phillips Law Group is dedicated to fighting for the rights of these injured parties. Through meticulous research and knowledgeable resources, our staff is able to put together a case which attempts to achieve the maximum compensation possible.

Possible Medical Expenses Covered
Medical costs and expenses can be astronomical after an accident. The monetary value for these medical bills must be determined in regard to current, future, and past medical charges. As such adequate documentation is essential to proving these expenses in the courts. The amount of money awarded to the accident victims usually varies based on the severity of the injury (injuries) and the ability of the legal representation to prove how much pain and suffering was endured.
Hard injuries generally receive a higher payment than soft injuries; however, these numbers will certainly vary on a case by case basis. The following are some of the most commonly found medical expenses that may possibly be covered:
- Current, future, and past medical bills
- Medical devices
- Doctor office visits
- Physical Therapy
- Medications and/or prescriptions
- Hospital stay
- Associated transportation
- Ambulance expenses
The above list covers the most frequently seen medical expenses that are covered under personal injury protection. Phillips Law Group is never intimidated by insurance companies. We take our role in your legal proceedings very seriously. A Phoenix injury attorney will make sure that the maximum compensation possible is achieved for the injuries that you sustained.

I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
