An accident lawyer in Arizona is a lawyer that offers legal representation to those who file claims to have been harmed, mentally or physically, as a direct result of another individual, business, government agency, or any other entity. Many personal injury lawyers mainly practice in the field of tort law. Tort law is a body of law that permits private parties to be held responsible for the damages they cause to another party when they act in a state of negligence. In the state of Arizona personal injury lawyers can be very helpful because many injury victims do not have the financial means to file a claim in court. The most common types of tort claims are for auto accidents, medical malpractice, workplace injuries, slip, and falls and product defects.
There are many cases in which no amount of fault can be placed on the shoulders of any one party. In these situations an insurance adjuster may be called in to determine fault. If no determination is made then the claim will go forward with the victim or his/her representative filing a personal injury claim. The insurance company will attempt to show that they are at no fault and that damages should be paid to the victim or their representative. They will try and get the claim from any source they can and will fight vigorously to get the most money possible to cover their losses.
It should always be kept in mind that the insurance adjuster is on the payroll of the insurance company and is not a legal practitioner. They should only speak on behalf of the company when it comes to deciding whether a claim is valid. This means that they cannot make their decision based on what they consider fair, just like an employment lawyer cannot do for a business. When making a claim under Arizona law you should remember that insurance adjusters make a living off of your suffering and it is up to you to keep the lines of communication open between you and them to ensure that every claim is settled as quickly and evenly as possible. With that in mind you will be able to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
