Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys in Phoenix, AZ

 
While we can’t possibly answer all of your questions about a personal injury case here, we do our best to answer the most frequently asked questions. With that said, we would encourage you to call our office as soon as possible if you think that you might have a personal injury claim.
 
 
 
Q: Do I really need to hire a personal injury lawyer?
A: After years of navigating the red tape of local government, medical providers, and insurance companies, we say YES! The attorneys at Leon Law really go above and beyond for our clients. We help our clients navigate through a range of issues stemming from their personal injury claim, medical payments, property damage, the insurance company, and liability determinations. It is best to have an advocate on your side when dealing with any third party. Remember, insurance company’s goal is pay as little as possible to settle your case.

Q: How much does it cost to hire an attorney?
A: Most car accident cases are handled on a contingency or “no-win-no pay” basis. This means is we do not win or settle the case on your behalf, we do not charge a fee. Give us a call today to discuss your specific situation and we will answer any question you have!

Q: How long does the whole injury litigation process take?
A: Unfortunately there is no easy answer to this. It really depends on the complexity of the case. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with the highest level of communication in the industry. Our clients consistently complement us on how we keep them informed on every step in the process. Setting the right expectations is key to any successful case.
Q: What is my claim worth?
A: I wish we could tell you right off the bat but the reality is, there are too many factors to tell you that right away. When you call us, we will walk you through the process and provide you with as much information as possible, but giving you a dollar amount is not possible most of the time. If you call an attorney and they tell you an amount over the phone, you should probably hang up. We fight for every dollar possible in a case. From lost wages, medical payments, to pain and suffering… We advocate for our clients, not the insurance companies.

Q: Should I seek medical attention right away?
A: We recommend you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even a minor fender bender can result in injury. We don’t say this because it adds additional value to your case, we say this because we truly care about making sure our clients are ok! Sometimes clients experience pain or discomforts days after an accident and then go to the doctor. Insurance companies are often quick to point the finger and state that other factors may be contributing to your injury now and try to get out of paying for your claim… Do yourself a favor and seek medical care as soon as possible after a car accident.

Q: What do I say to the insurance company?
A: Our advice, don’t say anything in the immediate aftermath. While you’ll need to contact your insurance company soon after an automobile accident, you don’t have to call them immediately.

 
Car accidents can take an emotional and a physical toll on individuals involved. Give yourself time to seek medical care, and think about things before reaching for the phone.

Each insurance company will ask different questions regarding the accident. They may ask who you think is at fault, what your injuries are, and what the circumstances were surrounding the accident. It is important that you provide an accurate account of what took place, stick to who, what, when, and where. Our recommendation is that you take a few minutes and write your thoughts out. Details like how fast were you going? What direction were you traveling? What lane were you in? What was the weather like? Who was in the car with you? Where were you coming from? Where were you going? If an insurer asks a question that you don’t immediately know the answer to, don’t be afraid to tell them that you will have to get back to them on that question!

The insurance company’s ultimate goal is to keep the claim to a minimum. They want to assess their liabilities as soon as possible and get all parties to settle for the least amount possible. After all, they are a for profit business! We recommend that you contact our office as soon as possible after an accident so that we can handle these details for you. Our experienced car accident attorneys will walk you through the entire process to make sure you get the compensation you deserve!
