An experienced Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyer can provide the helping hand for recovery after a motor vehicle collision. If you have lost or if you know of anyone who has lost a loved one in car accident, you need to contact an Arizona wrongful death lawyer immediately to discuss the next steps in seeking compensation for a wrongful death claim. Car accidents and, especially, the events to follow, can put tremendous stress on everyone involved. An experienced †lawyer can help you answer key questions and get the compensation you deserve.
Car accidents. They happen in a blink of an eye. Just by leaving home 3 seconds earlier, or 5 seconds later, you may avoid one and never know it. †Every 12 minutes a person in the US dies in a motor vehicle collision. This “plague” claims the lives of about 40,000 people per year. There is no magical cure for this widespread phenomenon, but simple preventative measures, such as alertness, diligence, and common sense might just save you or a love one. However, should someone you know be a victim to a fatal car accident, one of the very first things you should do is contact an experienced Arizona wrongful death lawyer.
While one cannot turn back time, one can try to make the best out of the future and fight to correct our life’s injustices. The truth is, that even in tragic situations like fatal car accidents, the accident might just be the beginning of a long road of hurdles and difficulties. As if losing a loved one is not enough, a person must then deal with his or her own injuries, medical expenses, auto insurance, life insurance, potential legal proceedings, etc. An experienced Arizona wrongful death lawyer is all too familiar and experienced with these tedious (but necessary) steps.
An experienced Arizona wrongful death lawyer knows that the money you may be awarded in a civil lawsuit (against a party that may have caused the wrongful death of a loved one) depends on several factors that come from outside the courtroom. Accordingly, the first things you do right after an accident may have a great impact upon the outcome of your case. If you were the one of the drivers involved in a car accident and you admit fault, such may come back to haunt you later at legal proceedings. It could undermine your credibility at trial, putting at issue the credibility of your claims, or even reducing the amount of damages you may recover.
Under Arizona’s “pure comparative negligence” doctrine, a person may still be able to recover even if they partially caused the car accident. Many people do not know Arizona laws and may assume that because they partially caused an accident, they are not entitled to any compensation. An experienced Arizona wrongful death lawyer knows otherwise. Moreover, if a loved one lost their life in the accident at issue, you may have additional claims for compensation based on pain and suffering, loss of consortium (when a romantic companion was the victim), among others.
After a car accident, you need help you can count on. You need aggressive representation that will fight for your rights and needs. Don’t just settle for the run-of-the-mill “do-it-all” type of lawyer. An experienced Arizona wrongful death lawyer is specialized in these types of cases and is the only lawyer you need. †To learn more or speak with a specialized attorney, contact Zachar Law Firm at (602) 494-4800 or visit www.zacharassociates.com.
