What is Negligence and Why is it Important?

In the State of Arizona, we hold the at-fault party responsible for the accidents and injuries that they cause. We do this by proving a case of negligence which lawfully establishes that liability. Negligence requires proof of four specific steps:

  • Duty Of Care — We all owe each other a duty of care to conduct ourselves in ways that ensure the safety of those around us.
  • Breach — When someone behaves in a careless way that is not considering our safety and welfare, they are said to be “in breach” of that duty of care.
  • Causation — When a party is in breach of their duty and it results in an accident that injures someone else, causation is established.
  • Damages — The accident and injuries resulted in financial, physical, and emotional losses to the injured party.

These seem like simple and common sense things to prove but insurance companies and defense attorneys are adept at finding ways to create doubt at one or more points of these steps. This is when having the representation of a skilled Scottsdale personal injury lawyer is often critical to your success for fair compensation.

But Doesn’t Insurance Protect Me?

In a perfect world, the companies that we faithfully pay premiums to each month would be there to protect us after a serious injury. But the insurance industry is a for-profit model. Consequently, they make every attempt to pay as little as possible in settlements to protect those profits.

Most injured parties aren’t aware of what they are legally entitled to in the way of compensation after an injury. Insurance companies know that injured parties will be glad for a quick settlement. Unfortunately, those settlements are often far less than the victim deserves. If you are an injured victim, your Scottsdale personal injury attorney is there to ensure that you get legally and fairly compensated for everything you are entitled to.

This compensation can include:

  • Your medical costs, emergency services, hospitalizations, medications, doctor visits, medical devices, diagnostics, physical and occupational therapy, and other costs associated with your injuries
  • Lost wages due to your inability to work as you are healing
  • Property damages such as any repairs to your vehicle or other personal property
  • Future medical costs as they may be needed in association with your injuries
  • Loss of earning capacity if your injury has made it impossible for you to go back to your former career
  • Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
  • Wrongful death if you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, let our talented team of Scottsdale personal injury lawyers help you get the full compensation you deserve. Contact The Skiver Law Firm for a no-cost consultation to discuss your injury claim and your legal options. You never pay legal fees until we recover compensation on your behalf.
