Mark Breyer, Arizona personal injury attorney, continues his discussion of requirements that are incumbent upon any personal injury plaintiff to prove to win their case.
A personal injury claim only exists when someone other than the injured person recklessly or negligently causes an injury to the victim. For instance, over the years we have talked to people who wanted to know if they could make a claim where they were injured in an Arizona auto accident that they, themselves, caused. By way of example, one mother called us after her daughter negligently drove into the rear end of another vehicle. The mother wanted to know if her daughter could make a claim through her insurance policy as a result of the medical bills incurred by her daughter.
More often than not, it is the most honorable, sincere, compassionate, law-abiding citizens that find themselves being denied justice by our current legal system in Arizona personal injury cases. Why? It is because usually it is the honest, trusting citizens that wait the longest to consult with an attorney. These are the people who do everything that the insurance adjuster working on behalf of the at-fault defendant asks of them, not realizing that their trust is misplaced. They often start with no intention of even considering hiring a lawyer or filing a lawsuit, and they often suffer greatly as a result of this otherwise admirable mindset.
If victims knew how our legal system worked and understood the process of pursuing an injury claim, these well-intentioned victims could increase their likelihood of a fair settlement or favorable jury verdict. If people were simply provided valuable information and warned of the potential pitfalls, they are more likely to increase the chances of a just result for their injury claim.
