If you have been injured in a car accident in Arizona and you plan to file a personal injury lawsuit, you must do so within two years after the accident. It is essential for your case however, to contact a personal injury attorney right away. By contacting an experienced attorney you will understand your rights and know exactly what to do.
At Van Norman Law we will give you more than just legal advice. We understand that you may not know what to do after a car accident and we will help you every step of the way. If you told us that you were only a little sore after a car accident, we would advise you to see your doctor right away. It is medically wise to take care of injuries before they worsen or manifest into greater injuries. Not only will this lead to a more speedy recovery, but it will also help your case. Insurance companies commonly argue that they are not liable for injuries because they came from an unrelated event after the car accident. They may argue that if you were injured you would have gone to see the doctor immediately.
Work with Van Norman Law and feel at ease, knowing an experienced legal team will handle your case. We know how to deal with insurance companies and we can help you obtain an appropriate settlement offer from the at-fault party’s insurance company. If you are unhappy with any settlement offer, we will take your case to trial and fight in obtaining what you are rightfully owed. We have helped hundreds of clients recover for time lost from work, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
We will work with you on a contingency basis. This means that there is no risk to you in pursuing your case. If we do not obtain a settlement or a judgment in your favor you will not be charged.
