Do I Have A Personal Injury Case?
Establishing negligence and then proving that negligence are very important components when building a personal injury damages case. Commonly, there are four elements that need to be determined:
Duty Of Care
Duty of Care is an obligation that the defendant has to act in a reasonably responsible manner, to ensure that themselves and others are not at risk of receiving an injury due to their actions.
Breach of Duty
A breach of duty is when the defendant failed to provide reasonable care as detailed in their "Duty of Care". An example of this may be a motorist that is texting while driving, and that person runs into another motorist.
Causation is the connection between the actions of the plaintiff and that those actions were the direct cause of the injury to the victim. It's important to note that the at-fault party may not be solely responsible for the accident however, it must be established that the actions of that person caused the plaintiff to sustain an injury.
It must be proven that there are direct, financial costs associated with the injuries that you received in the incident. Medical records and payment receipts for treatment can help to demonstrate this.
At Phillips Law Group, we have many years of experience handling personal injury cases which includes reviewing all of the details that are eligible in your potential lawsuit and how we may be of assistance with your potential lawsuit.
What Is My Personal Injury Lawsuit Worth?
When medical bills and other expenses start piling up and there becomes an issue of being able to pay those bills, some personal injury victims may begin to think about the value of their injury.
Should our personal injury lawyers determine that you have sufficient grounds to file a lawsuit, there are a range of areas that you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Medication costs (past and future)
- Physical therapy costs (past and future)
- Caregiver costs (past and future)
- Property damages
- Medical equipment (incl. hand rails, grab rails in the home)
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
In some instances, the plaintiff may also be eligible to receive compensation for non-economic damages, that may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of reputation
- Loss of companionship
However, it's important to note that each case is different, with different factors and circumstances surrounding each incident. Consequently, the exact value of your case can be difficult to determine without knowing the specifics involved.
We understand the pressure that victims and their families can face after an accident and we can help to find the answers that you may be looking for. To determine if you have a case, contact our team today completing our "Free Case Evaluation" form on this page, or by calling 1-800-706-3000.
Is There A Deadline To File My Claim?
In the state of Arizona, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the incident. However, in certain cases that deadline may be brought forward or extended.
An example of an extension may be under "The Discovery Rule". This may be used in the event that the injury victim was not aware of their injury at the time of the incident.
If you are unsure about your claim, we encourage you to contact a lawyer at Phillips Law Group today to determine firstly, if we believe that you have a case and if so, when the statute of limitations ends for your potential lawsuit.

How Can Phillips Law Group Help Me?
Personal injury cases that are handled by an attorney commonly result in higher amounts of compensation compared to those that are not handled by an attorney.
Shortly after someone has been injured in an accident, insurance companies will often become involved in proceedings. Insurance companies aim to settle claims as quickly as possible for the lowest financial amount possible. They may also ask victims to provide statements or sign documentation which may be used against the victim if they decide to pursue a damages claim. A reputable lawyer will be able to field those inquiries on your behalf and ensure that your best interests are being protected while you are recovering.
A personal injury lawyer can also help to assemble the evidence needed to help build a strong argument for your damages claim. From obtaining the police report, to medical records and other documentation, we have an entire team that support our lawyers as they build your case.
What Should I Do After I Have Been Injured?
Accident scenes can be very chaotic, which can be magnified if there are injuries involved. Often, injury victims are also unable to gather important information following the incident that can be used to help build an argument for their compensation claim.
Some of that information may include:
- Police/accident reports
- Receipts for medical services performed
- Receipts for medication
- Medical records showing the details of your injury:
- Ambulance transport receipts
- Doctor's report
- Medical test reports
- X-rays/MRI's/CT scans
- The names and contact information of anyone that may have witnessed the incident
- Pictures from the scene of the incident at the time of the incident
- Pictures of the injury (incl. those during check ups)
- Employment records including:
- Proof of pay rate before the incident
- The amount of hours that were worked each week
- Any medical benefits that were received
It's also important to try and maintain any medical appointments that you may have. By having a record of medical visits to receive treatment for your injury, it helps to provide that your claim for damages is valid.
