Am I Eligible to File a Case?
Personal injuries can result from many different situations, including:
- Auto accidents
- Slip and falls
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Work-related accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Nursing home abuse
”¦ and many more.
This is one of the many reasons why every injury case is different and why it is difficult to answer whether you have a case until our lawyers review the specifics of your situation. Should you have a case and decide to move forward, there are four elements of negligence that must be proven:
- Duty of care ”“ You must show that the at-fault party owed you a legal responsibility to act in a reasonable manner that would prevent you from an injury. This means that this person must not act recklessly, carelessly or negligently in a way that would cause harm to themselves and others.
- Breach of duty of care ”“ You must show that the at-fault party breached his or her duty of care by acting or failing to act in a way that a reasonable person would have in the same situation.
- Causation ”“ You must show that your injury would not have occurred if it was not for the at-fault party’s negligent or careless actions.
- Damages ”“ You must show that your injuries from this particular situation caused you to suffer damages, such as medical bills or loss of wages.
At Phillips Law Group, we have extensive experience handing personal injury cases, which includes determining all of the legal options that may be available to you and how we may be able to help.

How Much is My Case Worth?
In order to understand the value of your potential case, it is important that you reach out to a licensed Yuma personal injury lawyer. Each case some with its own unique set of factors and circumstances.
If our legal team can determine that you are eligible to take legal action, we will work hard to obtain compensation for the damages you have experienced. This may include the following economic damages:
- Past, current and future medical expenses
- Ambulance transportation costs
- Cost of surgery
- Medical tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs
- Prescription medications
- Physical therapy costs
- Cost of rehabilitation
- Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, canes, or crutches
- Lost wages from missing days from work
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Damaged property
- Cost of vehicle repair or replacement
- Funeral and burial costs
Depending on the severity of your accident, our lawyers may also be able to pursue other damages that are more difficult to measure because they do not have a set monetary value. These non-economic damages include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Post-traumatic stress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship
In rare cases, you may be able to obtain punitive damages. These damages are meant to punish the at-fault party for acting in an extremely negligent or careless way. This may also include situations when the at-fault party purposely acted in this manner to intentionally cause harm. Punitive damages also set an example to dissuade others from acting the same.
We understand how overwhelming injury victims and their families must be feeling after an accident. If we present you, we will work hard to pursue an accurate value of your damages.
How Can a Yuma Personal Injury Attorney Help Me?
Although there is no guarantee that hiring a personal injury attorney will result in the financial compensation you are seeking, it is highly beneficial to work with an experienced attorney from our firm. Below, we discuss how working with a member of our legal team could be beneficial, if you have a case:
Give You Time to Focus on Your Recovery
After suffering an injury in an accident, your main focus should be on your well-being and recovery. Having a lawyer from our firm can handle the legal process on your behalf to help you prioritize your health and getting better. He or she will also keep you informed of the process every step of the way.
Thoroughly Investigate Your Accident
It is critical to having supporting evidence to build a strong case. A lawyer from our firm will initiate a thorough investigation and collect evidence showing that the other party is at fault. He or she will do this by collecting photographic evidence of the accident and your injuries as well as supportive documents, such as medical records and police reports that link your injuries to the accident.
Work to Negotiate a Fair Settlement
Our firm has had decades of combined legal experience obtaining compensation for our clients’ personal injuries. Some cases are resolved through the insurance company while others may be resolved by both parties reaching a settlement. If these options are not a match to the damages you experienced, we are also prepared to take your case to court for a jury to resolve.
No Upfront Legal Fees to Worry About
You may be worried about the cost of hiring an experienced lawyer. But it is important to know that you pay no upfront fees unless we help you recover compensation. This is because we work on contingency.
We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you can contact us whenever it is most convenient to you. We will discuss your situation during a 100 percent free consultation and determine the best course of action for you to take.
Is There a Time Limit to File My Case?
Personal injury cases are governed by Arizona’s statute of limitations. Under this law, personal injury cases must generally be filed within two years from the date of the accident. Not acting quickly to file before the two-year deadline may result in a dismissal of your case and barred from financial recovery.
However, each case is unique and there may be some exceptions to this law that may fit your situation. If are unsure if your time to file has passed, we recommend that you reach out to one of our Yuma personal injury attorneys for legal advice.

Dealing With the Insurance Company
Many personal injury cases are often resolved through an insurance settlement. It is important to note, however, that insurance companies are a business. They are not looking out for your best interests but rather looking for ways that will profit the company.
After an accident, an insurance adjuster may contact you right away to get you to agree on a settlement. Though, it may be tempting to take this offer, it is likely that the settlement is much lower than what your claim is actually worth.
This is why we recommend speaking to one of our Yuma personal injury attorneys to better understand the true value of your damages. Schedule a free consultation to learn more about your options.
Steps to Take After Experiencing an Injury
After being injured in an accident, there are certain steps that you can take to help protect your health as well as help build a strong argument for your claim. Some of these include the following:
Step One: Seek Immediate Medical Attention
It is imperative to your safety that you see a doctor immediately after your injury. Even if your injury seems minor, he or she may unveil hidden dangers like internal bleeding or a traumatic brain injury.
Seeing a doctor is also important because it shows that your injury is serious. If the insurance company discovers that you did not seek medical attention, they may think that your injuries are not as severe as you say. Your medical records and medical tests can be used as evidence to help support your claim.
Step Two: File an Accident Report
Having documentation that supports the events of your accident is very important. Contacting the local authorities or supervisor of the property to file a report can help you do this. Be sure to ask for copies of the police/accident report to have on record.
Step Three: Collect Information From All Parties
Be sure to collect the names, addresses, and contact information from all parties involved, including any witnesses that may have been present at the time of your injury.
Step Four: Take Pictures Of The Scene
If your injuries allow you to do so, you should try to gather photographic evidence at the scene while it is still fresh in your mind. This include taking pictures from different angles of the scene of the incident, any visible injuries and torn or bloody clothing, skid marks, warning signs, and anything else deemed relevant.
Step Five: Keep a Personal Injury Journal
Keeping a journal that keeps track of your injuries, doctors’ appointments and medications you take can be used as evidence. Write down ways the injury has changed your life or keep a pain scale of how each day has either decreased or increased the pain and suffering you feel.

I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
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!!
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Phillips law group is the best around!
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.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
