Is My Catastrophic Injury Eligible For Compensation?
Every case has a unique set of circumstances, so until an attorney reviews the specifics of the incident that resulted in your injuries, it is difficult to say with any certainty.
For another party to be negligent, there are four elements that must be established, and as the victim, the burden of proof is on you. Our qualified attorneys are prepared to help establish the following:
- Duty of Care - Did the other party owe you a duty to act with reasonable care and prevent potential harm to you or others?
- Violation of duty of care - Was that duty of care breached by either the action or inaction of the other party?
- Causal link - Did the breach of care directly result in your injuries and would have otherwise happened?
- Damages resulted – Can you provide evidence that you suffered actual damages due to your injury?
How Much Could My Catastrophic Injury Be Worth?
The value of your catastrophic injury will be based on many contributing factors, which is why it can be beneficial to have one of our lawyers review the specifics of your situation. We are here to help determine an accurate value that includes not just your existing medical expenses, but also additional treatments and care you may need for some time.
Certain damages you may be eligible to recover include:
- Emergency care at the time of the accident
- All related current and future medical expenses
- Reasonable costs for helpful home modifications
- Property damages
- Prescription costs related to your accident
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
- Ongoing home care that may be required
- Surgical interventions
- Wheelchair or other mobility devices

There Is A Strict Filing Deadline for Claims in Arizona
Most states have some type of statute of limitations or deadline for filing a personal injury claim. However, no matter which state you are in, you must adhere to that deadline or risk losing your opportunity to pursue any compensation for the damages you have suffered.
In Arizona, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. Although two years may seem long enough to take legal action, your attorney will need time to fully investigate the accident that caused your injuries and gather evidence to build a strong argument on your behalf.
It is also important to mention that there are exceptions to the two-year rule that may require you to file significantly sooner – such as when you pursue a claim against a government entity – you will have just 180 days from the date of your accident to file.
When you schedule a consultation free of charge with one of our dedicated lawyers, we could help determine what statute of limitations may apply to your potential catastrophic injury claim.
