It’s no secret that Queen Creek is growing. More and more people are moving to Queen Creek, often from out-of-state. Construction is going on everywhere and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. In 2022, the federal government estimated that Queen Creek had a population of around 60,000. As of 2024, the estimated population is now closer to 84,000. Within 10 years, Queen Creek is expected to have a population of over 150,000. With no direct access to the US-60 or Loop 202, traffic on the surface streets can get congested very quickly. With traffic congestion, comes the risk for a variety of different types of car, truck, bicycle, or pedestrian accidents.

What is a Personal Injury Claim in Arizona?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, in Queen Creek, or elsewhere in Arizona, by someone else’s negligence, then you are allowed to make a claim against the negligent person or company for the damages that you have suffered. The whole purpose of a personal injury claim is to attempt to put you back to where you were, prior to the accident. For example, if you’re involved in a car accident, and your repair bill ends up being $2,000, then the negligent party is responsible to pay the $2,000 to fix what was broken. It works the same way if you’ve been injured, but can be much more subjective. This is why you need an experienced attorney to help you with your case. 

Damages

Generally, damages for a personal injury claim can be broken down into 2 major categories:  Special Damages, and General Damages.  

Special damages are things that can more easily be quantified. These include medical bills and expenses for accident related injuries, lost wages, future medical expenses, and future lost wages.  

General damages include things like physical and emotional pain, suffering, embarrassment, trauma, and hassle from having to go through your medical treatment. 

Building a Solid Case

Having compelling evidence is vital to maximize the compensation and reimbursement that you’re entitled to after being injured by someone else’s negligence. DO NOT DELAY! Even delaying your case by a few days or weeks can have catastrophic consequences for you. Here are some things to consider when helping to gather evidence for your case:

  • Photos and videos: A picture says a thousand words. Photos and videos can be very impactful when demonstrating the severity of your accident. Take photos and videos of EVERYTHING, including the scene of the accident, any property damage, any marks or bruises or visible injuries that you suffered, road signage, etc. 
  • Witnesses: If someone witnessed your accident, please make sure that you get their contact information. If you don’t collect it at the scene, it’s likely that nobody will be able to find them. Eye witnesses can provide crucial information as to who was at fault and how serious your accident was. 
  • Incident Reports: Make sure that someone creates an incident report for your accident. If you were in a car accident, make sure to call the police and have them come out to take a report. If you were involved in a slip and fall type accident at a store, make sure that the manager creates an incident report. 
  • Medical Bills & Records: Your medical bills and records are what we primarily use to document how injured you were, and how much those treatments cost. If you require future medical care, your doctor should include specific recommendations and estimated costs.  
  • Lost Wages / PTO: If you lost income, due to injuries from an accident, you are entitled to recover that income. The most important thing that we can recommend is to get a doctor’s note placing you off work. We’ll then work on obtaining the documentation we need from your employer to calculate how much income you missed out on. 

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations will define the deadline for when a lawsuit must be filed to preserve your claim. In Arizona, for most personal injury cases, the statute of limitations is 2 years. However, if the at-fault party is a state entity, then the statute of limitations for filing what is called a notice of claim is 180 days. Not 6 months. 180 days. There are also different requirements for obtaining strict liability for dog bite actions, and other requirements for medical malpractice claims. You should speak with an experienced Queen Creek lawyer as soon as possible so that you don’t lose your rights. All of our consultations are 100% free of charge.  

Queen Creek Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Case?

We work 100% on contingency, which means that we don’t get paid until you get paid. There’s no money out-of-pocket. If we don’t win, then we don’t get paid. In most cases, our fee is 1/3 of the gross settlement amount, but our fee is never bigger than what we put in your pocket.  

What if I’ve Been Determined to be Partially At Fault?

Arizona is a comparative fault state. Which means that even if you were partially at fault, you can still seek compensation for your case. For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault, you can still receive 90% of the value of your case.  

Couldn’t I Just Settle with the Other Party’s Insurance

I wouldn’t recommend it. You certainly could do that, and some people do go that route. However, studies have shown that people who hire attorneys for their personal injury claims receive more for their claims. In addition, an experienced attorney will make sure that you meet any applicable statute of limitations deadlines, and will ensure that your medical bills are handled properly so that you don’t owe more than your settlement amount.
