Injuries and Death
Personal injury is the term for what happens when the negligence of another person or company causes an individual injury to the body, brain or emotional well being. Arizona law requires people and companies to conduct themselves in a way that protects others from unreasonable harm. However, if someone does become injured due to negligence, that person is entitled to compensation for damages. Damages can include monetary compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of wages
- Pain and suffering
- Any cost reasonably required for treatment of injuries suffered
Wrongful death is the legal term for situations where a person dies due to the negligent or intentional conduct of another. In Arizona, liability is established by the Wrongful Death Act, A.R.S. §12-611 et seq. Arizona law allows for a recovery of damages by the surviving husband or wife, children, and parents. Wrongful death cases include car accidents, medical malpractice, products and premises liability or any other instance where an action or inaction has lead to the death of an individual.
