How Brain Damage Can Lead to Vision Loss

By Breyer Law Offices on January 7, 2021

The ability to see is something that many people take for granted. We use our eyes to navigate, communicate, and avoid danger. Unfortunately, sight doesn’t last forever, and many Arizonans experience vision loss as time marches on.

The Most Common Insurance Tactics to Avoid High Settlements

By Breyer Law Offices on December 23, 2020

Insurance companies rarely play nice, especially when they are being asked to pay out money. While we turn to insurance companies to help us recover from catastrophic accidents, they tend to put their own profits over their duty to their clients. That means that they will do everything they can to undervalue your settlement, and give you as little in compensation as possible. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to make sure you receive proper compensation following an accident.

What to Do When Your Insurance Acts in Bad Faith

By Breyer Law Offices on December 16, 2020

After finding yourself in a serious car accident, you will naturally turn to your insurance provider for help. After all, the reason you have auto insurance is to have your expenses covered in case you are ever involved in a collision. However, insurance companies exist to make a profit first, and help their customers second. Even if you have been the model client, they may still decide that your settlement isn’t worth what you ask, and deny your claim. This is called acting in bad faith, and it can leave you with no coverage after an accident.

How to Spot Elder Neglect

By Breyer Law Offices on December 2, 2020

The elderly need constant care and attention in order to remain healthy and safe. That is often why families may decide that an elderly loved one would do better in a retirement home that can care for them than alone in a house. Few people are able to provide their older loved ones with constant support, especially if all members of the family are working or in school. Nursing homes and retirement facilities are designed to provide round-the-clock care to their residents. However, not all staff do their jobs and not all facilities enforce proper care standards. Knowing what neglect looks like can help you keep your loved one safe and hold those who mistreated them accountable for their actions.

By Breyer Law Offices on November 15, 2020

While the term “phantom driver” sounds like it’s straight out of a movie, these dangerous drivers are all too real and all too dangerous.

Who Owes a Duty of Care to Motorcycle Passengers?

By Breyer Law Offices on November 11, 2020

Nothing is as freeing as riding on the back of a motorcycle. We should know; The Husband and Wife Law Team are motorcycle enthusiasts ourselves. But for passengers, as thrilling as it can be, they are also the most exposed on Arizonan roadways. That means, if you are involved in a collision, you are completely at the mercy of the person handling the motorcycle and the other driver. This can make it especially confusing once it comes time to file a claim. Whose liability insurance policy covers you? Both of theirs? Neither? Do you have a right to file against either one of them?
