Phoenix Personal Injury Claims: What You Need to Know

What Makes Up A Personal Injury Claim?

You need two basic components for a personal injury lawsuit, an assertion of negligence and a claim for damages.


In personal injury, negligence means showing a lack of care. This negligence can take many forms. For auto claims, negligence could mean a reckless or distracted driver. In a slip and fall claim, the negligent party is an inattentive property owner. For your claim to be successful, we must prove that someone else is at fault for your accident.


After proving negligence, the next step is determining how much money you deserve for your injury. These are your damages in your claim, sometimes known as monetary or money damages. Your damages can include:

  • Your medical bills including the cost of recovery
  • Any potential costs, such as ongoing and future medical treatment
  • Money to make up for lost wages
  • Pain and suffering resulting from your accident

Suffering from depression or anxiety can have a lasting impact on your health and well-being. The physical scars from your injury will stay with you for the rest of your life. You deserve fair compensation for these damages as well. Pain and suffering is a legal term intended to cover the emotional and physical cost of your injury, things that it’s otherwise hard to put a price tag on.

The personal injury claims process can be complicated. It is important to hire an attorney like Hoxie Law to help you navigate it so you can make sure you are demanding the settlement that will help you get your life back on track.

What Is Considered A Personal Injury Claim? – Types Of Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury law covers a variety of accidents, including:

Medical Malpractice

You go to a hospital to get better, but what happens when you leave in worse shape than when you went in? Any medical procedure poses risks, but a lot of injuries that happen at the hospital are preventable. Whether it was a doctor’s error or unsanitary conditions, if the hospital caused your injury, they are responsible for it. Medical malpractice covers any case where your injuries resulted due to errors or negligence from a doctor or other healthcare provider.

Some common forms of malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis: When the hospital treats you for the wrong condition.
  • Delayed Diagnosis: When the doctor misses symptoms of a serious condition, like cancer or a stroke. The delay in getting the right treatment can result in serious, preventable injury.
  • Infection: Contracting an infection or other illness after surgery due to unsanitary conditions.
  • Negligence: When a doctor or hospital’s inattention to their patient results in serious injury.

Auto Accidents

Car accidents can cause a variety of serious and even catastrophic injuries, but even seemingly minor injuries, can become debilitating over time. At Hoxie Law, we’ve handled thousands of auto injury claims in Arizona for all types of injuries from herniated discs to brain injuries. From the Newark tunnel to the bridge to Wildwood, we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you get compensated for your injuries, lost wages and medical so you can recover. Auto accidents cover any personal injury that occurred that involves a vehicle, including:

Premises Liability

Premises liability covers any injury you receive while you’re on someone else’s property. This includes the private property of a homeowner who invited you over as well as injuries when you’re out shopping at a retail store. One of the most common examples of premises liability is injury due to a slip, trip, or fall.

Dog Bites

We all know that larger dogs are responsible for serious dog bite injuries, but even small dogs are capable inflicting serious harm. If someone’s dog attacked or injured you we hold the owner responsible. Dog bites are infection-prone, plastic surgery is sometimes required, and medical bills can reach $70,000 or more . Our dog bite lawyers work will with their insurance company to get you compensation for the trauma you suffered and the medical care you require.

Assault & Inadequate Security

When you’re on a company’s property, that company has a responsibility to keep you safe. While no one can predict every situation, if your assault was preventable, they are liable for it.

Workers Compensation

If you are injured on the job, your employer’s workers compensation insurance helps cover your medical costs. However, if your injury was caused by a defective or unsafe product, you may be able to file what’s called a “third party liability” claim. Our worker’s compensation lawyers can help.

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can occur in a number of ways, from falling debris and slips or falls, to machinery accidents and even explosions. Such accidents can cause catastrophic injuries to workers and bystanders.

Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

When you place a beloved family member in the care of a nursing home, you assume that they are receiving all the care and attention they need. Unfortunately that is not always the case, and breach of protocol, failure to wear proper PPE, failure to provide proper medical care, and even deliberate misconduct have caused injury and even wrongful death. The legal team at Hoxie Law and Associates holds nursing homes liable for their negligence.

Product Liability

Every year defective products cause countless injuries and even death. If you have been injured by a defective product, the designer, manufacturer, distributor, importer, or seller could be liable for your injuries. You may have a product liability claim if the manufacturer made a mistake, the product design is dangerous or negligent, or if there was failure to provide adequate warning about the dangers of a product. A personal injury law firm has the experience and resources needed to fight auto manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and other product makers who release these products and put consumers in harm’s way.

How Much Is My Arizona Personal Injury Claim Worth?

Three components make up a personal injury case: medical attention, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • Medical Attention. Medical care is essential for treating your injuries. What you might not know is that seeing a medical professional serves a second purpose: documenting those injuries. Insurance companies might try to argue that your injuries weren’t as serious as you say to get out of paying what you deserve. But when you see a doctor, your medical records provide a valid record of treatment for your case.
  • Loss of Wages. Accidents can cause injuries serious enough to keep you out of work. At Hoxie Law‚ we fight to get you compensation for any lost wages that result from the accident. With serious injury, it could take weeks or months until you return to work, if you’re able to return at all.
  • Pain and Suffering. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we or anyone else can do to reverse the accident. We can’t prevent you from having to endure the physical and emotional consequences of your injury. What we can do is get you compensation for the pain you have experienced and the suffering the injury has caused you. The accident disrupted your life. Our role is to fight for justice and secure the settlement you need to make things right.

Every claim is different, so the quickest way to figure out how much you might be owed is to call us. Your case is unique and our personal injury attorneys will need to review the details of your claim and let you know what your options are. Victims who let an attorney file a personal injury claim on their behalf receive settlements that average 3.5x more than what they could obtain on their own.

When should you choose a personal injury attorney AZ?

The days and weeks after your injured are critical. There is a lot going on and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the advice of doctors and medical professionals. However, taking the steps you need to now will help protect your legal rights and access the care you need as you recover.

The first step is treatment

Never put off treatment for an injury. You are only going to make it worse, increasing your medical bills and delaying the time until you can get back on your feet. More importantly, some treatable conditions will become potentially life-threatening if you wait too long to diagnose them. Always see a doctor even if you don’t think the injury is severe, just so they can confirm that you are okay and on the path to recovery.
