We Demand the Compensation You DeserveMan distressed over his car accident

If you were involved in a car accident caused by no fault of your own, then do not think you must settle for a low-ball offer made by insurance companies or providers. Many times, insurance adjusters will try to offer a settlement that is far less than what you actually need to compensate for extensive property damage, medical costs, and lost wages. Working with a skilled Tempe car accident attorney can help make sure your case is resolved in the best possible way.

What are the steps to take after a car accident?

We believe that there is no such thing as a minor car accident. Though some can result in less damage and injury, car accidents can still have a ripple effect on every aspect of your life. After a car accident it is very important that you take the proper steps to recover from your injuries and seek compensation.

Listed below are the 6 necessary steps to take after a car accident:

  1. Step One: Check for injuries. In a car crash, there may be injuries that have affected the driver as well as passengers in the vehicle. Check all of the parties involved in the accident to make sure that you are not sustaining any life threatening injuries. If you have suffered from a serious accident, call 911 immediately to seek medical attention.
  2. Step Two: Call the police to report the accident.
  3. Step Three: Once you have reached safety, exchange information with any other drivers who were involved in the accident. Insurance companies will ask you for details about the incident including the other driver's name and contact information.
  4. Step Four: Document the accident as much as possible. Take pictures of the damages sustained to your vehicles, speak with the witnesses of the accident, and request a copy of the police report.
  5. Step Five: Contact your insurance company to report the accident. Make sure not to admit any fault or to leave any details in an ambiguous light.
  6. Step Six: Contact a Tempe car accident lawyer at Kent Law, PLC to begin seeking financial compensation for your injuries and for the negligence that caused you suffering. Our attorneys have the experience you need during this difficult time.

Laws in Arizona Regarding Car Accidents

Arizona, like most other states in the country, is not a no-fault state when it comes to liability laws for car accident claims. Instead, Arizona is a pure comparative fault state, which requires each party to pay for a percentage of damages equal to their percentage of liability. Establishing liability can be done through negotiations or a court’s ruling, if the claim escalates to litigation.

For example: You are driving on the highway and talking to your passengers. At the same time, another driver is texting while merging into your lane. You do not react to their approaching vehicle because you are absorbed in your conversation. A sideswipe accident occurs, resulting in a total of $100,000 in damages suffered by all parties. A court later finds you 20% liable for the accident since you were distracted by a conversation, but the other driver is 80% liable. You will be held accountable for $20,000 of the damages, or 20%. The remaining $80,000 are owed by the other, more liable driver.

Arizona also has a two-year statute of limitations law that applies to most car accident claims. Under this law, you have two years to seek damages for a car accident from another party you deem liable. However, you should be aware that you are also required to report your accident to your own insurer shortly after your accident.

  • They were always polite and patient, and did their best on behalf of my father.

    “Mr. Kent and his staff were very successful in assisting my father in a lawsuit which ended in a result that was much more successful than what we imagined.”

    Former Client

  • I highly, highly, highly recommend Adam Kent.

    “I highly, highly, highly recommend Adam Kent. I was charged with Dog at Large in Chandler (crazy neighbor….long story). The neighbor was seeking restitution, to get rid of my dog, etc. While Mr. Kent and I agreed it was a ridiculous charge he took on my case and fought hard. I was thoroughly impressed with how much time and effort he put into my case. In the end I paid a small fine, paid no restitution and was able to keep my dog. There is no way that would have been the outcome if it hadn’t been for Mr. Kent. I cannot recommend him enough. Mr. Kent is a fighter and he made me feel like I was his most important case.”
