PERSONAL INJURY AND WRONGFUL DEATH

We seek recovery for harms and losses that people suffer as a result of:


  • Trucking,  automobile, and motorcycle crashes:  Drivers on our roadways need to follow the rules of the road and avoid colliding with other vehicles or pedestrians.    If they are negligent and you are harmed, the Arizona Constitution provides that you can seek reimbursement for those harms.       


  • Medical negligence:    Doctors and healthcare providers need to use reasonable care in treating their patients and not fall below the standards that govern their area of practice.  If a heathcare provider falls below the applicable standard of care and the breach causes damages,  then you may be entitled to damages.  One medical malpractice case I handled resulted in changes to charting practices at a local hospital.


  •  Product liability:     Manufactures can be held liable for unreasonably dangerous or defectively designed products. 


  • Homeowner and premises cases including knife and gunshot injuries, trip and falls and dog bites:  homeowner insurance can provide coverage for incidents that happen both at home and away from home. 


  • Construction site injuries:  Construction sites need to be safe and follow applicable regulations. 


  •  Kinds of injuries and damages:  We have handled all kinds of injury cases arising from negligent conduct including:   Brain injuries, Spine and Disc injuries, Fractures, Dog bites, Amputations, Partial Paralysis, Scars, CRPS/RSD and a variety of other injuries.  We strive hard to understand every aspect of how an injury has affected our client so that we can fully convey that to the insurance adjuster, or prove it to a jury if necessary.


  •  Wrongful death:  In the event of a wrongful death, we understand that no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one.  Every life is unique and meaningful.  We seek to understand your loved one's life and your loss with care and compassion to achieve justice and accountability for their unexpected death.


INSURANCE BAD FAITH

  • Implied in every insurance policy is a duty of good faith and fair dealing.  When an insurer breaches this duty, it is sometimes referred to as bad faith.
  • Insurers can commit bad faith in a number of different ways.  We have attached links on the resource page for you to check out in order to know your rights.  A few of the ways insurers can act in bad faith are as follows:


             1)        Denying a claim without adequate investigation;

            2)        Failing to fully indemnify an insured for all covered losses;

            3)        Delaying payment of a covered claim;


           4)        Failing to disclose all policy benefits applicable to a loss; and

           5)        Failing to defend an insured and protect them from excess judgments.

 The Arizona Standard Jury Instruction on Bad Faith sets forth the damages that can be recovered if an insurer has been found to act in bad faith and the damages are caused by its conduct.  They include, among other things, policy benefits and damages for emotional distress.
