Why Work with an Arizona Personal Injury Attorney After Your Accident?

After being involved in an accident, the very last thing you need to worry about is navigating the complex legal system. Contacting the at-fault driver’s insurance company for justice can seem nearly impossible. Not only are you in pain, mentally and physically, but most likely you are suffering financially as well. Covering towering medical costs, going without an income, and dealing with the costs to repair or replace personal property can seem overwhelming. Rather than moving forward alone, seeking guidance from ELG accident attorneys can help to ensure you are able to protect your legal rights and best interests while you focus on recovering.

Our Arizona personal injury attorneys provide an array of services for clients in both Mesa, Phoenix, and all surrounding cities. Some of the services our team provides for our clients include:

Gathering Evidence: At ELG, we understand the critical importance of having a strong case against the at-fault driver. For this reason, we put together elaborate cases based on sound evidence from a variety of sources. We personally go out to the site of your accident and take pictures as well as record videos that show why the accident took place. Whenever necessary, we work with experts who can recreate your accident. We gather testimony from witnesses, work with financial experts, and take various steps toward ensuring no stone goes unturned.

Communicate with Insurance Companies: It is no secret that insurance companies are entirely self-serving. Even though you were hurt as a result of their client’s actions, they are still going to go out of their way to make it seem like you are at fault. Rest assured that our team at ELG is aware of all the tricks insurance companies try to take. We will not accept lowball offers for our clients. Instead, we will aggressively negotiate full and timely compensation to ensure victims are able to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and all economic and non-economic damages they face moving forward.

Get you the Money You Deserve: If we are unable to come to a settlement agreement with the insurance companies of at-fault drivers, we are prepared to represent you at trial. Our seasoned personal injury attorneys in Mesa and Phoenix provide aggressive, competent, and effective legal representation for our clients to ensure they are able to obtain the outcome they expect.

Help our Clients Reach their Goals: We firmly believe that our clients are the heart of each case. For this reason, we fight to make sure they are in the best position possible to move forward after being harmed. We stop at nothing to ensure they are able to get the medical treatment necessary to recover and to help them reach their goals moving forward.
Working with a personal injury attorney can help you better understand the legal process and ensure you are protected against insurance companies who want nothing more than to offer you the minimum amount of compensation in the hopes that you will leave them alone. Contact ELG today so we can demand the justice you deserve.

Auto Accident Attorneys in Arizona

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be devastating. Quite often, victims are unaware of legal options available to them. As a result, thousands of people accept minimal settlements from insurance companies that barely cover their medical expenses. Rather than letting others take advantage of you during these vulnerable times, it is crucial that you seek the legal guidance of a competent and trusted legal team immediately.

At ELG, we help accident victims recover after being injured in vehicle collisions. The fact of the matter is that more than 53,000 people are injured in automobile accidents throughout the state of Arizona each year. Although there are various steps we can take to protect others sharing the road, there is very little that we can do to ensure other drivers are as committed as you are to safe driving practices. When victims are harmed in accidents, our team provides aggressive and competent legal representation to ensure their best interests and legal rights are protected.

Over the years, we have helped our clients recover the maximum amount of compensation following automobile accidents involving:

Are Arizona Car Accidents Preventable
  • Motorcycles: The fact that motorcyclists are unprotected from outside forces means they are more vulnerable to serious and life-altering injuries in accidents. Each year, more than 2,700 people are involved in motorcycle accidents across our state.
  • Cars and pickup trucks: Tens of thousands of people are harmed in motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, and SUVs across the state of Arizona each year. These accidents often leave victims to endure overwhelming mental, physical, and financial consequences. Single-vehicle accidents account for more than 18,700 accidents while multi-vehicle crashes account for over 108,300 crashes annually.
  • Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles: Semi-truck accidents often leave victims with far more catastrophic injuries when compared to accidents involving other types of vehicles. The size and weight of semi-trucks mean they are more likely to cause severe damage, especially when smaller vehicles are involved.
  • Bicycles: Like motorcycles, bicyclists are at an increased risk of suffering severe injuries in accidents. When drivers cause collisions while traveling at a high rate of speed, the chances of suffering catastrophic and fatal injuries are drastically increased. Bicycle accidents in the state of Arizona account for over 1,200 crashes annually.
  • Pedestrians: Pedestrians are even less protected than bicyclists and motorcyclists. People simply do not walk around wearing full armor to protect themselves. As a result, many pedestrians sustain life-altering injuries that require both immediate and long-term care. Each year, more than 1,760 people are involved in pedestrian accidents here in our state.
  • Rideshare vehicles: In legal terms, rideshare accidents are far more complex than standard collisions. The fact that there are multiple insurance companies arguing over who is liable can prolong the recovery process. Working with a skilled legal team can help to ensure those at-fault are held accountable so you can recover quickly.
  • Light rail and trains: Every year, more than 5,800 train accidents take place across the United States. These accidents claim the lives of more than 600 people while leaving thousands of others injured. When victims are harmed in light rail and train accidents in Arizona, it is crucial that they act quickly to ensure their legal rights are protected.

We at ELG stop at nothing to ensure those harmed are able to hold wrongdoers accountable and maximize their recoveries moving forward. When it comes to handling a motor vehicle accident case, it is crucial to understand the cause of the crash. Generally, victims are able to recover from accidents after providing that another driver caused their accident due to negligence. Life-altering vehicle collisions can be caused by a variety of reasons, including:

  • Drivers who are texting or engaging in distracting behind the wheel
  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are traveling at a high rate of speed
  • Disregarding traffic control devices
  • Not driver safe for weather conditions
  • Broken, defective, or malfunctioning parts

After analyzing traffic-related incidents in our states, alarming statistics show that:

  • Over 1,000 accidents take place each year due to drivers who run stop signs
  • Speeding is a factor in more than 42,600 accidents each year
  • Over 21,700 accidents are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Improper turns account for more than 4,800 accidents each year
  • Changing lanes in an unsafe manner is a factor in more than 8,700 crashes annually
  • Following too closely is the cause of more than 8,800 accidents
  • Drivers who fail to stay in their own lanes contribute to more than 5,300 accidents annually
  • Disregarding traffic signals are the cause of more than 5,300 annual collisions

In addition to driver violations, distractions are another common factor in more than 57,000 accidents each year. Some of the most common distractions include:

  • Distractions from electronic devices in more than 1,400 crashes
  • 3,190 accidents occurred due to drivers who were eating or drinking
  • Over 800 people caused accidents due to manually operating electronic devices while driving
  • Over 950 accidents occurred due to distracting passengers
  • More than 430 accidents were caused by drivers talking on a handheld device

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is imperative that you retain legal representation from attorneys who are equipped with the knowledge, understanding, and experience surrounding these complex legal claims. Our Arizona car accident attorneys at ELG have decades of experience helping motor vehicle accident victims get the justice they deserve and we stop at nothing to ensure each client we work with is able to get the justice they rightfully deserve.

Premises Liability Attorneys in Arizona

When we go to the property of others, we expect it to be safe for us to engage in activities and complete the task at hand. Whether we are visiting a friend, going to a store to buy groceries, or visiting a movie theater for a night out, it is crucial that we are able to do so safely and without worry. When property owners fail to ensure the safety of guests, and injuries follow, those harmed are able to file personal injury lawsuits against the negligent property owner or manager.

There are a variety of factors that contribute to premises liability accidents here in Arizona. Some of the most common causes of these unpredictable accidents include:

  • Inadequate security measures
  • Loose floorboards
  • Wet or slippery surfaces
  • Holes in walls and in the ground
  • Exposed wiring
  • Unstable and unsecured furniture and objects
  • Toxic fumes
  • Improperly stored chemicals
  • Equipment defects and malfunctions
  • Broken or dysfunctional locks
  • Broken elevators
  • Lead poisoning
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Loose and uncontrolled dogs or other animals
  • Defective lighting
  • No railing, ledges, or landings off stairs, decks, or balconies

The bottom line is that it is crucial for property owners and managers to effectively ensure the safety of guests. If they are unable to timely address an issue at their business or property, they must take appropriate steps toward notifying guests of the potential risks or damages. Adding signs, closing off specific areas, and notifying people of problems directly can help to ensure others are not harmed. When property owners fail to notify others, and injuries pursue, they face legal consequences.

When it comes to premises liability accidents in Phoenix and Mesa, some of the most common cases we handle for clients surrounding drowning incidents and slip and falls.

Drowning Incidents: When property owners fail to implement safety measures to prevent a drowning incident, they can be held liable for a victim’s injuries and damages. It is crucial that there is ample fencing to prevent small children from entering the pool unprotected, that there are trusted adults or lifeguards available to watch over guests, and that there are no unsafe water conditions present.

Slip and Fall Incidents: More than one million people are harmed in slip and fall accidents each year across the United States. These accidents claim the lives of more than 17,000 people annually. Slip and fall accidents are nearly always preventable. When property owners fail to ensure the safety of their guests, they can and should be held accountable. Although more than 25% of serious workplace injuries are a result of slip and fall accidents, it is important to understand that they can take place in any location and under any circumstance. Some of the most common locations for slip, trip, and falls in Arizona include:

  • At home
  • At the home of another person
  • At the business of another person
  • In a crowded public location
  • In areas with icy or slippery surfaces
  • Concerts and music events
  • Retail outlets
  • At a sporting event

Each situation presents its own unique set of legal liability questions. Working with a responsive and skilled legal team can help to determine if you are able to recover.

After being involved in an injury accident on another person’s property, it is crucial to determine whether you have any legal grounds to file a claim. To do so, you must first determine what category of guest the injured party falls under. The reason why they visit the property is often a determining factor in the type of protection they have. In Arizona, guests can be categorized in any of the following ways:

  • Invitees: People are considered invitees to a property when they enter the premises to conduct business. Generally, patrons at businesses, water parks, and even public pools are considered invitees.
  • Licensees: This category of guest is used to describe guests who gather at homes and businesses for social functions and gatherings.
  • Trespassers: In Arizona, people who enter upon premises without the permission of a property owner are considered trespassers. In many cases, these people enter properties to engage in illegal contact. Trespassers are generally afforded no legal protection. However, working with an attorney can help to determine if you fall under one of the limited exceptions.

Additionally, the doctrine of attractive nuisance provides situations where property owners can be held liable for injuries, damages, or death to small children who enter their property uninvited. If your child was injured or lost their life in an accident, and you believe it was a result of inadequate safety measures implemented by the property owner, it is crucial that you reach out to a premises liability attorney in Arizona as soon as possible.

Although an accident on another person’s property can seem minor at first, it is crucial that you seek medical attention to ensure your injuries are not life-threatening. It is also helpful to have a record of the incident and potential injuries should they worsen over time. After being involved in an accident on another person’s property in the Mesa or Phoenix area, contact an Arizona premises liability attorney from ELG as soon as possible. You may have legal options available to help you get the medical treatment and compensation you need to recover.

Wrongful Death Attorneys in Arizona

Every year, thousands of people across our state lose their lives in accidents caused by the negligent or reckless actions of others. Dealing with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one is not only mentally and emotionally draining, but it comes with an array of financial consequences as well. Whether a person is involved in a car accident, an incident on the job, or even a slip and fall accident on another person’s property, it is crucial that their families are aware of legal options available to them. Our team at ELG strives to help families recover after losing a loved one in a sudden and unexpected accident. By filing wrongful death claims against those at-fault, surviving relatives may be able to recover compensation to help them move forward and deal with some of the economic and non-economic consequences they face. It is important that you understand what a wrongful death case is and how filing one can help your family after a loss.

What is Wrongful Death?

What is a Wrongful Death Case?

A wrongful death claim is a type of legal case that is filed against someone who causes an accident that results in the loss of life. Wrongful death claims are similar to personal injury cases in some ways. When a person is injured in an accident as a result of another person’s actions, they often seek legal guidance in filing a claim against them to collect compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and other losses they face. If the person passes away from their injuries, the ability to file a claim against a negligent party is passed to others. Wrongful death laws in the state of Arizona are designed to recognize that the negligent party’s liability extends far beyond the death of the victim. For this reason, our state provides those impacted by a loss caused by a negligent party to file a legal claim and hold them accountable.

It is important that you understand whether you are able to file a legal claim after enduring a loss. In Arizona, there are certain people who are able to file wrongful death claims after enduring the loss of a loved one. Entitled parties include:

  • The surviving spouse of the decedent
  • The decedent’s surviving domestic partner
  • The surviving children or grandchildren of the decedent
  • Any individual who is specifically designated to inherit any part of the decedent’s estate

Entitled parties have a strict time frame to file a claim against wrongdoers. Working with a wrongful death attorney in Arizona can help to ensure your legal rights are protected should you experience the loss of a loved one. In addition to damages recoverable under personal injury laws, those who lose loved ones can recover compensation for:

  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Personal pain and suffering
  • Lost values and household services
  • Loss of inheritance
  • And more

Although no amount of compensation will ever bring back the lives of those taken away so suddenly and unexpectedly, having the financial resources needed to cover the unanticipated costs associated with the loss of a loved one can help make the grieving process less stressful.

Our team at ELG understands that there are few things more devastating than dealing with the loss of a loved one. Knowing that they lost their life due to the actions of another person just makes the situation even more challenging to accept. Rather than trying to navigate the complex legal system alone, bereaved families can benefit greatly by hiring a wrongful death attorney from ELG in the Phoenix and Mesa areas after experiencing a loss. Our team will take various steps toward protecting the legal rights and best interests of families so they can focus on recovering and moving forward. We have helped thousands of clients in Arizona recover after losing loved ones under various circumstances, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Due to defective products
  • In work-related incidents
  • Due to medical negligence
  • As a result of a dog attack

No matter what circumstance caused the loss of your loved one, we are here to help guide you through the legal process and fight on your behalf to ensure that justice is served. Contact our law firm at your earliest convenience to meet with our wrongful death attorneys in Arizona to see how we can help you.
