Personal injury is a legal term that refers to any injury or damage that occurs to the physical body, mind, or emotional state of an individual. Injuries may occur while on the job, on the road, or during any number of other activities. If you have questions about an injury you have received or aren’t sure whether you are entitled to legal compensation, a personal injury attorney can help you determine your rights in any situation.
How Soon Should I File a Lawsuit?
After an accident or injury, it’s important to file a claim as soon as possible. All compensation cases have a statute of limitations, which determines how long you can wait after the event occurs to request compensation. The statute of limitations differs depending upon the injury and the case. Regardless of the time limit, however, the sooner you begin the legal process, the sooner you can achieve a resolution.
Who Can I Sue in a Drunk Driving Case?
If you are injured by a drunk driver in Arizona, you may be able to sue both the driver and the establishment that served him. The state of Arizona’s liquor liability law prohibits bars and other establishments from serving additional alcohol to an individual who already appears inebriated. If you have been involved in a drunk driving case, your personal injury attorney can help you determine which responsible parties owe you compensation under the law.
Do Injuries Need to Be Assessed By a Doctor to Make a Claim?
Just as police reports are necessary to make a case for liability during an accident, information from a medical professional is also necessary when making an injury claim. If you do not currently have a doctor, your personal injury attorney can recommend one to assess your injuries and begin your claims process.
