Personal Injury FAQs

  • Why should I work with a Phoenix personal injury lawyer after an accident?

    There are numerous statutes and laws that can apply to any accident. Filling an injury claim in Phoenix can be extremely complex, and to ensure you receive maximum compensation, it is in your best interest to retain an experienced accident lawyer who focuses solely on personal injury cases. Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law has more than 60 years of combined legal experience in personal injury and our accident attorneys in Phoenix have handled over 10,000 accident cases. We live and breathe accident law. This means that we not only know and understand what you and your loved ones are going through, we have the knowledge and skills to get the successful results you both expect and deserve.

  • How much time do I have to file an accident claim in Phoenix?

    According to Arizona’s statute of limitations law, victims have two years to file a claim after being involved in an accident in Phoenix for either personal injuries or property damage. There are a number of exceptions to this law that significantly shorten this time limit. We strongly recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney before it is too late. The sooner the claim is filed, the greater the chances of obtaining maximum recovery. Waiting too long to file an accident case can mean losing out on thousands of dollars in compensation that would otherwise be rightfully yours. That being said, there are times when an accident victim isn’t fully aware of the extent of their injuries immediately following the incident. Certain injuries, including the aggravation of preexisting conditions, can take months or even years to develop. If you or someone you love suffered a personal injury in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, it is important to speak with a Phoenix accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure you do not miss out on obtaining your due damages. An experienced lawyer will assess the situation and ensure you are within the allotted time limits for filing your accident claim.

  • Can I file an accident claim in Arizona on behalf of a loved one?

    Yes, you can file an accident claim on behalf of a loved one – especially if your loved one was incapacitated in the accident. Surviving loved ones of wrongful death victims in Phoenix are also entitled to seek legal help and may be eligible to recover wrongful death damages, including loss of earnings and loss of love and affection. Speak to a Phoenix wrongful death lawyer at our firm to review your options.

  • Am I entitled to recover money for lost wages?

    Yes! If your accident caused you to miss work due to injuries, you can file a claim to recover lost wages. A Phoenix personal injury attorney at our firm can assist you with claims related to wage compensation.

  • Do I have to pay any accident attorney fees?

    At Hirsch & Lyon, we are dedicated to helping accident victims recover the maximum compensation possible for their injuries and property damage. Our commitment to clients means that we do not charge for fees or costs if we do not recover damages. If your case settles without a lawsuit, our Phoenix accident attorneys only charge a 25% contingency fee. In addition, if it turns out that your expected recovery is lower than our expected fee, we will lower our fee below 25%. In other words,  our attorney fee will be adjusted so it will never be greater than the amount received by our clients!  

Car Accident FAQs

  • What steps should I take after being involved in an auto accident in Phoenix?

    The first thing car accident victims should do is contact 911 – even if you do not believe you suffered injuries. Many times, injuries like whiplash can develop several hours or even days after an auto crash. The initial shock after the accident can also cause an adrenaline rush, preventing victims from realizing they are hurt. In addition, serious head injuries often go unnoticed by the victim, but can quickly turn fatal. For these reasons, it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately after a car accident and request a full examination.

    It is also important to contact police and take photos of the accident scene – if you are able to do so. Record as much evidence as you can from the scene, including the other driver’s license plate number, driver’s license information, make and model of their vehicle, and other useful facts that can corroborate your case, such as whether the motorist appeared intoxicated.

    Finally, contact a car accident lawyer in Phoenix, AZ to get started on your personal injury claim. A lawyer with experience handling personal injury accidents can immediately begin assessing the incident and gathering evidence that will give you the best possible accident injury settlement.

  • What should I do if the at-fault driver’s insurance company contacts me?

    Try to avoid speaking with the insurance company directly because agents may try to trap you into a subpar settlement or give you the runaround when you ask questions. Your Phoenix car accident lawyer will handle all communications with insurance providers on your behalf and negotiate the appropriate damages you deserve for your injuries or property damage.

  • How much compensation am I entitled to after a car accident in Phoenix?

    Every car accident case is different, however, our car accident lawyers in Arizona work diligently to recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to. Damages can include compensation for personal injuries, pain, suffering, mental distress, property damage, lost wages, lost past and future earnings, and the wrongful death of a loved one.

  • What types of injuries do car accident victims suffer?

    Car accident victims can suffer a range of injuries, including fractureshead injuries, whiplash, limb loss, paralysis and even death. Victims can also experience emotional trauma from the accident that can lead them to avoid ever getting into a vehicle again. Because auto accident injuries can often be catastrophic, it is important to reach out to an experienced team of car accident lawyers in Phoenix as soon as possible. Your attorney can evaluate the extent of your injuries and help you obtain just compensation.

  • What if the at-fault driver doesn’t have insurance?

    If an at-fault driver doesn’t have insurance, in most situations, victims can file a claim through their own insurance provider. You may also be able to file an additional claim against your own underinsurance motorist coverage. Because these types of claims can be extremely complex, it is best to consult with a Phoenix car accident attorney first before taking matters into your own hands.

  • What happens if I don’t have auto insurance?

    If you don’t have auto insurance, but the at-fault driver does, you can file a claim against their insurance provider.

  • Why do I need a lawyer after being in a car crash in Arizona?

    Car accidents happen daily in Phoenix – the majority of which result in serious injuries. Auto insurance companies may try to give you the runaround and attempt to settle for less than you deserve for your injuries or property damage. An experienced Phoenix car accident attorney who focuses on auto crash claims can help you recover the full amount of damages you are entitled to. Your lawyer will carefully review the details of your accident, speak to witnesses and police, and even consult with medical professionals to make sure you obtain just compensation.

Truck Accident FAQs

  • What is a “commercial vehicle”?

    A commercial vehicle can include a variety of large trucks used in the transportation of goods. Examples of commercial trucks include 18-wheelers, dump trucks, semis, tanker trucks, tow trucks, and several others.

  • Who is liable for a truck accident in Phoenix?

    Anyone who caused the truck accident can be held liable for it. Sometimes, the accident is due to the truck driver’s negligence. Other times, it is the result of the trucking company’s failure to abide by safety standards. If you or someone you love was hurt in a truck crash, it is important to consult with an experienced Phoenix truck accident lawyer as quickly as possible. Your attorney will review the details of the incident and make sure those who are at-fault are held accountable for their actions.

  • What are the most common causes of truck accidents in Phoenix?

    The vast majority of truck accident cases are caused by either the truck driver’s negligent actions or the trucking company’s negligence. Truck drivers are often expected to work long hours – much more than workers employed in any other profession. As a result, truck drivers are often tired and fatigued, speed in order to arrive at their destinations on time, and commit several other unsafe roadway practices. To save money, trucking companies may not perform frequent safety checks on their vehicles, which can also lead to accidents. Additionally, trucking companies often pressure drivers into working longer hours than necessary, despite knowing that their drivers are exhausted.

  • What should I do if the trucking company or their insurance provider attempts to settle after an accident?

    Insurance providers are notorious for lowballing accident victims. They know victims are already dealing with their injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one and are vulnerable. They will try to take advantage of your vulnerability and offer a settlement that is – in many cases – way below what you are rightfully entitled to. They may even put a due date on your response for recovering damages. Though it can be tempting to take the offer and put the accident behind you, the actual compensation you may be rightfully entitled to can be well above what the trucking company or their insurer is offering. In some cases, trucking companies and their insurance providers may even try to avoid paying victims entirely. Speaking with an experienced Phoenix truck accident attorney is the best thing you can do to make sure your right to compensation is fully protected.

  • How can a truck accident lawyer in Phoenix, AZ help me?

    After a collision with a large commercial vehicle, trucking companies will attempt to defend themselves and avoid liability for the incident – even if their own negligence contributed to the incident. They may also attempt to limit compensation to victims or even refuse to pay damages altogether. However, when you work with a knowledgeable team of Phoenix truck accident lawyers, you’ll have experienced legal counsel on your side defending your rights. Attorneys that have successfully represented injury victims against trucking companies and their drivers know exactly what it takes to win the case at hand. They will investigate the incident, speak with law enforcement officials and witnesses, look into the safety practices of the trucking company and drivers, and even contact medical professionals to ensure you obtain the medical care you need and the full compensation you are entitled to.

Our firm advocates for individuals and families throughout Phoenix, Arizona and across Mohave County
in all types of accident law and injury cases, including:

Arizona Car Accident Statistics

Every year, several thousand people in Arizona are involved in a car accident. In fact, on average, 155 people are injured, and two people are killed every day in motor vehicle crashes in Arizona. According to a 2016 Arizona Department of Transportation report, there were a total of 126,987 motor vehicle accidents in the state that year – 856 of which were fatal and 38,616 of which resulted in injuries. The total number of car accidents in 2016 rose by 8.70% from the previous year, which suggests that roadways are becomingly increasingly dangerous. Now, more than ever, it is crucial that anyone involved in a collision turn to an experienced Phoenix car accident lawyer for assistance after a crash.

Out of the total number of auto accidents in 2016:

The report further explains that the majority of car accidents in the state were rear-end collisions. Factors that contributed to these car crashes were mostly attributed to negligence, including speeding and drunk driving. Anyone who is injured or sustains damage to property in a motor vehicle accident has the right to seek legal counsel and may be eligible to receive compensation. An auto accident attorney in Phoenix, AZ at Hirsch & Lyon can provide you with the skilled representation to help you recover maximum damages after an auto wreck.

Arizona Truck Accident Statistics

Trucks are among the most dangerous types of vehicles on the road. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles can lead to devastating injuries for other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists – much worse than injuries that may be sustained in car accidents. In 2016, several motor vehicle accidents involved trucks and large commercial vehicles.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the following represent 2016 Arizona truck accident statistics:

  • 38,149 truck accidents involved pickup trucks
  • 2,520 truck accidents involved truck tractors
  • 204 truck accidents involved dump trucks
  • 132 truck accidents involved garbage trucks
  • 40 truck accidents involved tanker trucks
  • 58 truck accidents involved concrete mixer trucks
  • 132 truck accidents involved tow trucks
  • 11,952 truck accidents resulted in injuries
  • 319 truck accidents were fatal

Truck accidents can occur for several reasons. However, for the majority of cases, truck accidents are the result of driver or trucking company negligence, such as speeding, unsafe lane changes, fatigue or the trucking company’s failure to maintain vehicle safety. Anyone who has been involved in a truck accident may be entitled to compensation and should speak with an experienced Phoenix truck accident lawyer as soon as possible following the incident.

Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Motorcycles are fun to ride, whether you are a driver or passenger. Unfortunately, even the most safety-conscious of riders can be involved in a motorcycle crash and experience serious injuries. Unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles offer no protection from other vehicles or unsafe road conditions. As a result, the injuries bikers can sustain in a crash are usually exponentially worse than those car or truck accident victims may suffer.

Below are the 2016 Arizona motorcycle accident statistics:

  • 3,115 crashes involved motorcycles
  • 2,426 motorcycle drivers were injured
  • 135 motorcycle drivers were killed
  • 176 motorcycle passengers were injured
  • 10 motorcycle passengers were killed

Like car and truck accident victims, those involved in a motorcycle crash (be it one that involved injuries or property damage) can turn to a Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyer for assistance in recovering damages. Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law is ready to support and assist motorcycle wreck victims and our attorneys will do everything in our power to protect the rights of those who were injured or experienced the loss of a loved one.

what our clients are saying

"I am very happy with the settlement I received. I don't think I would have been able to get the same amount of money from the insurance company if I handled my case on my own. I would refer Mr. Lyon to anyone."

Zac Becerra

"Mr. Lyon explained everything very well and made sure I was comfortable with every part of my case. My family has used Greg Lyon twice and we've had a great experience each time - we would use them again if we have another accident."

Thomas Baker

"I have never had to hire an attorney before. I was shocked when Mr. Lyon was the one answering my questions during my first call to the firm. I could tell he had a lot of experience and knew what he was talking about."
