PERSONAL INJURY OVERVIEW

   

Personal injury law is the area of the law that holds people or organizations responsible for the harm they cause to others. Using Arizona's tort laws, victims of some type of injury -- physical, financial, emotional or cognitive -- may sue the people responsible for their injuries. The Arizona Revised Statutes give a person the right to sue within a specified time period, and the Arizona case law provide for the evaluation and theories of liability in your case. Some deadlines are very quick; for example, 180 days in some cases.

These lawsuits generally seek to recover the costs victims had to pay because of the accident, which can include medical bills, missed work, funeral bills and more. They usually also seek to recover compensation for damages that are harder to put a dollar amount on, such as financial compensation for a lifelong disability created by an accident or the loss of a deceased family member's care and love.

In extreme cases, victims may also be able to recover punitive damages, which seek to punish wrongdoers for deliberate or egregious violations of the law.

Tucson personal injury lawsuits often, but not always, arise out of avoidable or foreseeable accidents. Some come from deliberate actions by another that violate the law. And a few come from "strict liability," a legal concept saying that a wrongdoer is legally responsible for harm regardless of the circumstances. 

PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUITS IN TUCSON

Typical subjects for personal-injury lawsuits include:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Brain injuries
  • Insurers not paying a legitimate claim (insurance bad faith)
  • Violent crimes at a place without enough security (negligent security)
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice, including birth injuries
  • Prescription drug injuries
  • Defective consumer products or tainted foods
  • Slips and falls at a public place, like a store (premises liability)
If you’re a victim of a personal injury in Tucson, we strongly advise you to speak with a Tucson personal injury attorney as soon as you can. In most cases, Tucson law gives victims three years to file a lawsuit. In some cases, the limit, called the statute of limitations, is just one year.

After that time is up, you simply can't sue, regardless of how good your case may be. In addition, victims of accidents involving large companies or insurance companies are often subjected to aggressive settlement offers designed to save the compaTucson money without compensating victims fully for their injuries.
