Each state has its own set of laws when it comes to car accidents.  Arizona car accidents have their own nuances.  For this reason, it is vitally important to hire an experienced accident/injury attorney.  The attorneys at East Valley Injury Law have over 100 years of experience in handling all types of situations surrounding car accidents.  Below are some of the reasons you should hire an East Valley Injury Law attorney:

Not Everyone Has Sufficient Coverage

When your injuries are serious, you will want to know if the other driver has sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the mounting medical bills.  Your East Valley Injury Law attorney will quickly find out how much coverage the at-fault driver has.  Your East Valley Injury Law attorney will also confirm whether you have sufficient Underinsured or Uninsured or Medical Payments coverage.  

If you discover the other driver is either uninsured or underinsured, we will negotiate not only with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, but we will negotiate with your own insurance company to make sure they compensate you fairly for all you’ve gone through.  You may be surprised to learn that despite paying premiums to your own insurance carrier for many years, the adjuster who handles your claim is more interested in saving the company’s money than they are in providing you with a proper amount of money.  

Although Arizona law does have mandatory auto insurance and minimum coverage requirements for liability, there is no requirement for a person to carry underinsured or uninsured coverage.  If you do not currently have underinsured or uninsured coverage up to the limit of your liability coverage, we strongly urge you to make the changes necessary to protect yourself against a situation where another driver has failed to obtain a sufficient amount of liability insurance.  

Whether yours is a liability claim only, or one involving uninsured or underinsured motorist coverages, you’ll want to have a personal injury attorney in Arizona on your side.

Insurance Companies Fight Against, Not For, You

Contrast the interests between insurance companies and personal injury attorneys:

When you need them, you will find the interest of your insurance company is NOT aligned with your interests.  Insurance companies are in the business of making money for their shareholders – we cannot fault them for that.  However, this places the interests of the insurance company against the interests of the insured.  Each month, you pay premiums to your insurance company.  Then, when you get in a car accident and make a claim, the insurance company fights to keep the money it has by finding any way it can to minimize the amount of money it pays out on the claim.

In contrast, the interests of your East Valley Injury Law attorney is aligned with your interest.  The more money East Valley Injury Law obtains for you, the more East Valley Injury Law is paid.  Thus, our interests are aligned with those of our clients. We want to get the most money possible for our clients!

When you make a claim against an insurance company, you will be assigned to an adjuster whom you have never (and will never) meet.  When you hire East Valley Injury Law, you will meet personally with an attorney who will work with you personally.  You will also work with a case manager who will know you and you will know them.  Your claim is personal to us!

This contrast is the reason why you need an East Valley Injury Law attorney on your side as soon as possible after a vehicle accident. We will force the insurance company to pay the maximum amount allowed by law.  

After 911, the very first call you should make is to East Valley Injury Law.  We will listen carefully and determine if there is a case where we can represent your interests. The insurance company does not put your interests first. We do. If you’re not at fault for causing the accident, you don’t need to deal with the insurance company – leave that to us.
