As the second-largest city in Arizona and one of the 50 largest cities in the United States, Tucson sees tons of traffic in its downtown area and suburbs.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
One of many misconceptions about personal injury claims is that there is always a right to compensation after somebody has been hurt. The reality is that under Arizona’s personal injury laws, the only time a person has a right to compensation for an injury is when another party caused that injury. In addition, the injury has to have been due to that other party’s negligence or intentional act. Claims can be, and often are filed for:
Compensation can be owed for the victim’s lost wages, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, frustration, and inability to do normal activities that could be done prior to the injury. In other words, the law does not allow someone who is negligent to get off the hook by just paying medical bills while the other person is forced to suffer a life-changing situation. However, getting that compensation can be difficult.
There is an old saying that "it is not what you know, it is what you can prove." This is true in the law, and it is very true in personal injury litigation. Being able to prove that somebody else was negligent is a must in order to receive compensation. This is where a personal injury lawyer becomes vital in a successful claim.
Why You Can’t Rely on Insurance
When an accident occurs, there are many times where the person who caused your injury has absolutely no money, no insurance, and no assets. In other words, you could get a $1 million judgment, and that judgment is not worth the paper it's printed on.
This is why it’s important to find out what insurance policies may apply to that particular situation. The insurance companies involved aren’t going to volunteer that information and often act in bad faith. Sometimes, the failure to collect any money is a result of a lack of initial investigation.
However, there may be assets available to pay a judgment that have not been considered. There may be defendants who contributed to the harm, who are also responsible, that must also be pursued. A good Tucson personal injury lawyer can help you find them.
Frequently Asked Questions

We are here to help, and there is no charge.
What can a Tucson personal injury attorney do for me?
Filing a claim in Tucson requires local knowledge. Will the paperwork go through the Pima County Court Administration, the U.S. District Court for Tucson, or perhaps through the Tucson City Court? What insurance company branch and adjusters will be looking over your claim? We know how these things work in your town, and are familiar with the opposition.
A good accident lawyer is in a much better position to help you determine a fair amount of compensation for your injuries and damages, and much more likely to be able to negotiate a settlement from the insurance company, corporation, or whomever is making the final decision.
Can I settle my claim now and still get money later for expenses I incur after I settle?
The answer to this question is NO. Insurance settlements in personal injury cases are almost always a one time, one-shot deal. Now, you can expect that the insurance company will do everything possible to make sure that you sign a "release" before giving you any money. In other words, before the insurance company will pay, they want to make sure that you have signed away any rights to get more money in the future.
Therefore, it is important to make sure that any settlement you agree to includes money for anticipated costs in the future. This requires the help of a skilled Tucson personal injury lawyer who can help the victim get a settlement that covers all present and future expenses.
How much does it cost to hire a Tucson personal injury lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer is very different from hiring most types of professionals to work for you. In most situations, if you need the best possible service, you will have to pay a lot of money out of your own pocket. However, you can hire our experienced attorneys on a contingency fee basis.
A contingency fee works like this: if the case is lost, the lawyer gets nothing. However, if the case is won the lawyer gets a percentage of the recovery. In most cases, the contingency fee is one-third (33%) of the total amount recovered for you.
A complicated personal injury matter can take thousands of hours of a lawyer's time. At Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we only work with clients on a contingency fee basis. In fact, in spite of everything we have accomplished, and all of the people we have been able to work with and have had the honor of helping, we have never had a single client pay us a single dollar out of their pocket. Instead, every dollar that we have ever been paid, we have earned through a successful conclusion to our clients' cases.
Are you a discount lawyer, and can I get a reduced percentage off the contingency fee?
We take great pride in what we do at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. We have spent years building up our reputation, our track record, and our successes. Some lawyers are willing to be discount lawyers. We are not.
If you are looking for the best possible injury lawyer that is a fit for you and your case, we strongly encourage you to give us a call at (520) 624-4228. We will get paid only if your claim is successful. We do not get paid just for "trying hard." We can work on a case for years, but will not get paid a single penny until we have recovered money for our client.
