Snowbird Injury Attorneys in Phoenix
Are You a Snowbird Who Was Injured in Arizona? We Want to Help
Arizona is a great place for snowbirds to spend time away from the cold weather of their home state or country. Snowbirds tend to come to Arizona just before winter hits and stay until the spring. This is a span of several months, and a lot can happen in that time. Sometimes, snowbirds get into accidents, and this can cause great confusion. Snowbirds don’t always know what laws they are governed by, or where to turn for help.
If you’re a snowbird who has been injured in Arizona, you may be entitled to compensation. To get it, you’ll need the help of an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney. Call The Husband and Wife Law Team at (602) 267-1280 to set up a free consultation.
Types of Snowbird Accidents
Snowbirds have many specific needs when they are staying in Arizona. As such, there are many different types of accidents they may find themselves in during their stay, like:
- Out-of-state car accidents
- RV or motorhome accidents
- Airbnb or vacation rental accidents
- Trailer park or RV park accidents
- Golf cart accidents
When a snowbird is injured in an accident in Phoenix, Chandler, or Gilbert, he or she is governed by the laws of Arizona. For example, Arizona is a tort auto insurance state. If you crash here, you will have to follow tort law, even if you are from a state that follows no-fault insurance law.
Arizona personal injury law also rests on the concept of negligence. Negligence is failing to act in a reasonable or safe manner. When a person acts negligently and causes an accident, the person’s insurance company can be held responsible for paying compensation to any injured individuals. You’ll just have to file a claim in the state of Arizona, as this is where the accident happened.
Going Home After an Accident
Personal injury claims can take months, and sometimes even years, before they are settled or a verdict is given at trial. While these claims must be filed in Arizona, snowbirds can usually travel back home afterwards. Our attorneys can work with you over the phone or through email.
