What is Personal Injury?
Phoenix Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury claims provide a legal means of seeking financial compensation for the damages caused by the wrongful or negligent acts of another. Personal injury claims are filed with the insurance company and may be resolved either in a negotiated settlement, arbitration or at trial.
We know insurance companies. Our experience allows us to negotiate from a position of strength to quickly get you the money you need to pay for your medical bills and damages. If the insurance company fails to do what is right, we are prepared to fight for you in arbitration and at trial, if necessary. A Phoenix personal injury lawyer who knows how to protect your rights could be your greatest asset after you have been seriously injured.
Who can file a personal injury claim?
Accident victims and those who were harmed physically or psychologically by the wrongful or negligent acts of another may make a claim for the damages they have suffered.
A statute of limitation restricts the amount of time following an accident or harmful act in which you are allowed to bring a personal injury claim. If you were injured or lost a loved one due to another's recklessness, it is vitally important that you contact a lawyer immediately.
Documentation of the nature and extent of the injury or loss and the associated costs is a crucial part of any personal injury case. Our experienced lawyers can help you gather the necessary evidence, file your claim and even pursue a favorable resolution in court, all at no up-front cost to you.

Who is liable for damages?
Personal injury law can be complex. In general, for a personal injury lawsuit to be successful, we must prove:
- The acts of another were negligent or wrongful
- They caused harm (under the theory of proximate causation)
- The person, business or governmental entity has legal responsibility to pay for the damages that resulted. This is known as liability.
The team at Phillips and Lyon relies on 30 years of experience in the field of personal injury to help our clients quickly identify parties that may be liable in an accident or injury and to assess the likelihood of recovery in a personal injury suit.
