mesa personal injury attorney | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog - Breyer Law Offices, P.C.
Here at Breyer Law Offices, we take a lot of pride in what we do. We have spent many years building an excellent reputation and a solid track record of success. While we have no problem with other lawyers offering discount services – and we would never criticize them for doing so – we are not discount lawyers here. Think about it. Would you ask a brain surgeon if he or she would discount their prices? The answer is no, of course. You understand the value of the services they provide. Likewise, there is a lot of value in the services we provide. We feel that by offering contingency based fees, we are able to give clients access to excellent representation that they would not otherwise be able to afford.
We are proud of the work we do and we truly fight hard on behalf of our clients to win them the best results possible. We don’t sell our clients short. We are open, honest, dedicated, and experienced. That’s why we’re able to deliver great results for so many of our clients.
As Mesa personal injury attorneys, we get this question a lot. Unfortunately, there is no easy or quick answer. While we understand that car accident victims want to know whether their claim is worth pursuing, the fact of the matter is that each case is incredibly unique and specific, so what was true for one Mesa car accident case, won’t necessarily be true for another. Also, if the case goes to court, a jury in Maricopa County will decide what the victim is entitled to – which may be a lot more or a lot less than you’d think.
Mesa personal injury cases typically conclude in one of two ways. In some cases, they are settled, which is by far the most common conclusion. This happens when the plaintiff and the insurance company or defendant come to an agreement over compensation and the amount the case should be settled for. If the case isn’t settled, then it will go to court to be tried in front of a judge and jury. At the end of the trial, if the case is successful, the jury will decide the amount of compensation.
As personal injury attorneys in Mesa who have handled hundreds of car accidents, we’ve seen many kinds of accidents repeat themselves. One common accident we’ve seen time and again is when a car turns left directly in front of a bike or motorcycle, cutting them off and causing an accident. In fact, we’ve even seen documentation in motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson’s owner’s manual about this occurrence. In the manual, it mentions that this is one of the most common types of accidents for motorcyclists and that the driver of the car usually doesn’t even notice the motorcycle rider. For some strange reason, many drivers forget that they should not only be looking for other oncoming cars and trucks, but also bikes and motorcycles, too.
In many of these cases, the driver of the car will typically claim that the motorcyclist was speeding or that a bicyclist came out of nowhere and should have been paying more attention. They will try to blame the victim of the accident simply because, in their mind, they were following the law and it must have been the other motorcycle or bike rider who was at fault.
The thought of dealing with lawyers, expert witnesses, judges, and juries is enough to make anyone’s head spin. To avoid such a scenario, many people who have been injured due to negligence want to settle their personal injury claim as quickly as possible, without hiring a personal injury attorney in Mesa.
But is Settling Your Case Really the Best Route to Take?
Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. Numerous questions must be asked and factors evaluated when deciding whether or not to settle.
For instance, one critical question that must be asked is: what is the claim “worth”? Here, we’re not talking about what is fair in terms of compensation. In fact, fairness shouldn’t really be a factor at all when considering whether or not to settle. Instead, we’re trying to determine whether or not it is more beneficial to the injured person to continue forward with a case.
