Traffic Collisions in Arizona
If you were injured during a car accident, you should seek the guidance of an Arizona personal injury attorney to determine what types of financial compensation you might be entitled to and from whom.
Some common types of financial compensation include:
- Hospital Bills: Medical expenses pile up quickly after a serious Arizona car crash, particularly when you consider that the injuries most often caused by these accidents include traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and whiplash.
- Damage to Property: If your vehicle or another piece of personal property is destroyed or damaged, you could be able to secure restitution for the expenses associated with repairs, replacements, vehicle rental while yours is being fixed, or, if it was totaled, the cost of a new car.
- Lost Income: If you sustained significant injuries, you might not be able to return to work for quite some time. This will make your financial situation exceptionally trying as your medical bills continue to accumulate.
- Pain and Suffering: These are intangible damages without a fixed dollar amount resulting from your injuries that directly affect your quality and enjoyment of life.
If the victim of an Arizona traffic collision dies from their injuries, the legal landscape surrounding your case has now shifted in such a way that you are eligible to bring a claim of wrongful death against the at-fault party.
When successful, these claims can potentially produce damage awards that provide financial compensation to the victim’s surviving relatives for:
- Medical costs/Hospital bills
- Funeral and burial expenses/Cremation costs
- Lost earnings the deceased would have contributed to the household
- Loss of companionship
