What You Should Know When Hiring Austin Kurtz as Your Phoenix Car Accident Attorney

What Is Your Fee Structure for Phoenix Car Accident Cases, and Do You Offer Contingency Fee Arrangements?

Injured car accident victims often shy away from seeking the services of an experienced Phoenix car accident attorney. It’s not because they don’t think they have a case or they don’t need compensation for their damages. Rather, it’s because they don’t think they can afford an attorney to represent them and their claim. Sadly, injured parties miss out on the compensation they deserve because they don’t reach out for legal help, not realizing they can get legal help without any upfront fees.

Our law firm works on a contingency fee basis only. We don’t charge any initial consultation fees, and you owe us nothing over the duration of your case. If and when we obtain compensation on your behalf—either through a negotiated car accident settlement or a court award, our fees will come out of those funds. We take a pre-determined percentage of your compensation, and you will know what that percentage is when you hire us. You don’t pay us anything out of pocket. If we fail to obtain any compensation for your case, you don’t owe us anything, ever. 

It’s really that simple and easy. Don’t let your present financial situation prevent you from seeking the legal help you need and deserve after a car accident. 

Do You Offer Free Car Accident Consultations in Phoenix?

It costs you nothing to come in and meet with an attorney at our law firm. We offer all car accident victims (or their families if the victim is deceased) complimentary, no-obligation case consultations at their convenience. During this consultation, we will learn more about how your car accident happened, the injuries you have sustained, and how they have impacted every aspect of your life. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about our firm. 

If we believe we can help in your case and you feel the same, you can hire us at the end of your consult or sometime after.  

How Will You Communicate with Me throughout My Phoenix Car Accident Lawsuit, and How Frequently Can I Expect Updates?

Communication is of utmost importance at our firm. We know you place your trust in us and that the personal injury claims process can be overwhelming and stressful. When you have questions or concerns, you have every right to have them addressed promptly. Our clients expect and receive regular updates from our office staff, paralegals, and attorneys whenever new information impacting their cases is available. We can communicate by whatever means is most convenient and comfortable for you— phone calls, emails, or texts.

How Do You Determine the Value of My Car Accident Case in Phoenix, and What Factors Will Be Considered?

The value of a car accident claim involves many factors, which include the following:

  • Who is liable for your car accident
  • If there are multiple parties liable
  • The insurance policies involved
  • The coverage amounts of those insurance policies
  • The weight of the evidence to establish liability
  • If there are numerous injured parties to the same car accident
  • The severity of your injuries and damages
  • Recent similar cases in the area and their claim value

Your damages can be economic and non-economic. Economic damages include those that have an inherent value and can be proven with receipts, bills, or other documents:

  • Lost wages and income, such as your salary, overtime, bonuses, tips, commissions, and other benefits
  • Medical bills, including ambulance and emergency room care, doctor visits, hospital stays, rehab, medications, and medical devices
  • Property damage—usually in a car accident, this refers to your vehicle, but it can also include things like clothing or jewelry that were lost or damaged in the accident as well as personal items or groceries in your vehicle at the time of the accident
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments

Non-economic damages can be trickier to prove, but our law firm is well-versed in establishing them in car accident claims. They don’t generally have documentation to prove their existence and are subjective. They can include the following:

  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of a body part or function
  • Humiliation 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

The value of your non-economic damages is typically tied to the value of your economic damages. Our attorneys know how to prove these damages and will work tirelessly so you can receive full and fair compensation for them.

Can You Explain the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Car Accident Claim in Phoenix, Arizona, and What Deadlines Apply to My Case?

The statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim in Phoenix, Arizona (and the entire state) is typically two years from the date of the accident. However, certain elements regarding who the claim is against (including a governmental entity or your own underinsured motorist coverage carriers) may alter that deadline. In addition, if the victim is a minor child at the time of the accident, they may have a longer statute of limitations apply to their claim.

It is always best to contact an experienced Phoenix car accident attorney immediately after the crash to ensure you’re aware of all possible deadlines. 

Missing the statute of limitations that applies to your claim will most likely result in the dismissal of your case. While you can still file a claim after this deadline expires, the liable party will exercise their right to ask the court to throw the case out based on the deadline. The court will have no choice but to honor their request. There are no extensions or exceptions to the statute of limitations that apply in your case. 

Do You Have Experience Working with Medical Professionals Who Can Help Document My Injuries and Treatment?

Yes, our team has vast experience working with medical professionals while representing car accident clients. This step is necessary and essential so we can understand your injuries and what your future holds. If we don’t have an in-depth understanding of the extent of your injuries and how they impact your life now and possibly in the future, we can’t fight for maximum compensation in your claim. We utilize and appreciate our working relationships with medical professionals, as this helps us help you. 

In addition, if you need help finding a doctor to treat your injuries, we may be able to provide some referrals so that you can choose the best one for you. Even if your medical professionals aren’t ones we have worked with before or on our referral list, we are happy to work with them in getting you the medical care and legal compensation you deserve. 

How Do You Prioritize My Phoenix Car Accident Case among Your Other Clients, and How Much Time Will You Dedicate to My Case?

All car accident cases require diligence and attention to detail. That’s why, regardless of your case’s size or complexity, we will dedicate appropriate resources to ensure it is handled as efficiently and effectively as possible. 

No case is prioritized over another; they are all addressed equally at our law firm. Our severe car accident cases with catastrophic injuries are just as important to us as more minor car accidents with much less significant injuries. We will always dedicate enough time to each car accident claim to ensure the case is handled correctly. 

If you ever have concerns about the way your case is being handled or how long it is taking, we invite you to discuss them with your attorney. We value transparency and open communication with all of our clients.

What Are the Next Steps to Set Up My Car Accident Consultation in Phoenix, Arizona and Hire You as My Attorney?

When you are ready to take the next step, pick up the phone and give us a call or contact us online. We will schedule a time that’s convenient for you to come in for your free consultation. We invite you to bring any pertinent documents or records you might have available to this meeting, such as accident reports, medical records, pictures of your injuries or the accident, and insurance information. 

Suppose we believe our firm can help you recover fair compensation for your injuries, and you are comfortable and confident that we can help you during this process. In that case, we can sign a contract and move forward. 

Keep in mind that your car accident claim comes with a deadline. It’s in your best interest to reach out for legal help as soon as possible after sustaining injuries in an accident. Car accident claims take time to investigate and negotiate, so the longer we have to work on your case, the more thorough and effective we can be. Another reason to contact an attorney immediately is that valuable evidence supporting your claim can be lost or destroyed.
