In Arizona, a personal injury claim begins with a person who has been injured due to the actions or negligence of someone else. That person files a claim requesting monetary compensation for his or her injury. In most cases, Arizona personal injury claims are made against the insurance company that represents the person who caused the injury.
At this point, most personal injury claims conclude with a settlement. In such cases, both the plaintiff and the defendant (or the defendant’s insurance company) agree to an amount of money that is believed to be fair compensation for the injuries sustained. These kinds of settlements are not always equally favorable to both sides, though. Sometimes, the settlement is more favorable to the injured person; and other times, the settlement seems to favor the defendant or insurance company.
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.
Fortunately, most negligent acts do not result in an injury. It is also fortunate that even where an injury occurs to an innocent person, and even where that injury was caused by someone else’s neglect, the injury is often minimal. Most injuries that are inconsequential are not worthy of bringing an Arizona personal injury claim.
To have a valid personal injury claim, it is not enough that a negligent act caused an injury. Instead, the victim must be able to prove that he/she suffered an injury as a result of another’s negligence. While the allegation of a new injury (or aggravation of prior injury) must be true, it must also be able to be proven with evidence.
