If you were injured in an automobile accident in Arizona, it is important to know what happens after the accident, and what you should do.
If the accident is minor, you will probably have to deal with property damage claims and possible injury claims. If the accident is serious, there will almost certainly be property damage claims and injury claims. Such claims almost always involve insurance adjusters and claims representatives, and more serious accidents may involve police and other emergency services.
Hiring an attorney can help. Hiring the right attorney can be critical because a successful personal injury claim may seek to recover money for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, burial costs, and other financial costs that can result from the injury. Typically, a personal injury lawyer is hired to oversee such a claim, and to let the injured person focus on healing without the stress of dealing with the legal side of the accident. Personal injury lawyers typically offer a no-cost consultation, so there is usually no downside to speaking with a lawyer about your potential claim.
Hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you after an automobile accident gets you a professional working for you right away, especially when time may be of the essence. An experienced attorney can advise you about any time limits that can prevent you from filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. For example, in many states you must file your lawsuit within two years of your automobile accident or be forever prohibited from filing your lawsuit. An experienced attorney will also be able to inform you about any special exceptions that may apply.
