Serious Personal Injury
Whether by a car accident or medical malpractice, you can be seriously
injured through no fault of your own. If this happened, the most important
thing you can do is take it easy and follow your doctor's advice.
Don't take shortcuts when it comes to your healing and recovery.
Once you make sure that you are being taken care of medically, it is important
to retain legal counsel as early as possible. At Owens and Perkins, personal
injury cases are typically taken on a contingency fee basis. What that
means is that the law firm doesn't charge the injured person an hourly
rate. The law firm gets paid only if the injured person gets paid by the
insurance company or by the person causes the injury. This means you don't
have to come up with money to retain a lawyer to protect your rights.
Once hired, we will start collecting evidence to prove your case and show
that you were not at fault or limit the amount of fault that is going
to be attributed to you. Arizona is a comparative fault state, meaning
that your recovery can be reduced if the other side, usually the insurance
company, can show that you were partially responsible.
Insurance companies are businesses. As such, they try to maximize their
profit and pay as little as possible on claim. There is nothing wrong
with a business trying to maximize its profits, but many people think
they can handle the claim themselves because the insurance company will
be fair. There is no requirement that an insurance company be fair. The
insurance company is looking out for their interests and it is crucial
that you hire someone to look out for yours.
