Victims of car accidents and other incidents that cause injury have certain rights. But if you are unaware of these rights, you may be giving up valuable compensation for your injuries. Of course the first thing to do after any injury is to seek immediate medical care. Thereafter a victim must take steps to protect their rights so the compensation demanded adequately covers the entire loss.
Three rights every victim has after being injured in an accident include:
- The right to medical treatment.
- The right to compensation from the liable party for physical injuries and property damage.
- The right to make a claim for the damages suffered.
If you are hurt in an accident we know how to help. The first hurdle is to make sure you file your case on time if you are not able to come to an agreement for reimbursement with the negligent party. In Arizona the deadline to file for personal injury claims is two years, and depending on the type of accident this date may be difficult to determine. In car accidents the time typically starts to run on the date of the accident. But injuries happen in a variety of ways and you need a knowledgeable attorney to look over your case to protect your right to file a case. Slip and fall accidents can cause severe injuries and on top of determining the filing deadline you will need help to identify the responsible party. Liability may lie with multiple companies or corporations. A trucking accident is usually very serious or catastrophic and while there is still a timeline to file a case, an overlap of state and federal regulations can come into play. These complications require examination by a trained attorney with experience helping people recover after an accident. We have that experience and here to help you!
