What Is Negligence Car Accident in the state of Arizona will mean

The Importance of Legal Representation Negligence Car Accident

You’re probably aware that as a victim of a car, pedestrian, or auto accident, your legal case in Phoenix, Arizona will be considered negligence due to the accident happening through no fault of your own. But, what does that mean in legal terms, and how does that impact your ongoing legal case- and more importantly, your outcome?

Do you know what it really means to be negligent in Arizona?

In a Negligence Car Accident, the focus of the law is on addressing the harm caused by inattention or carelessness, rather than intent, which is typically required in criminal cases. In essence, it’s an accident, but someone is still responsible, and an Arizona court will advocate for your rights as a victim to receive fair compensation that aligns with the specifics of your accident and the resulting suffering.

Examples of when someone has acted negligent and as a result caused an accident, not intentionally but due to their own carelessness include:

  • Driving under the influence of drinks or drugs.
  • Being distracted by a phone or even passenger when driving.
  • Not looking at a junction or ignoring road signs and signals.
  • Pulling out in front of another moving. 

In a Negligence Car Accident case, the attorney will contend that although the incident was unintentional, the plaintiff had a legal obligation to exercise care and caution in order to prevent such accidents. Driving while under the influence of alcohol, for instance, is a behavior that can be easily avoided, highlighting the element of negligence. As both drivers and pedestrians, we all carry the responsibility of ensuring that our actions do not cause harm to others while using Arizona’s roads.

Securing the compensation you deserve in a negligence case

Throughout your Negligence Car Accident case, your legal professional will diligently build a comprehensive argument to secure the compensation you rightfully deserve for the enduring suffering you’ve experienced since the accident. It’s not merely about obtaining compensation for vehicle damage or medical expenses, as your attorney will elucidate. A negligence car case takes into account various other factors that warrant compensation, such as ongoing medical bills, property damage, and even lost workdays directly caused by the accident.

We’ve put together another guide to what it means to be negligent in Arizona that focuses on the law and what the state considers as a negligence case, which you can find here.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
