1: Personal Injury Liability Law

Under Arizona’s personal injury liability law, individuals are protected when injured due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another person or entity, such as a private business. Injured parties can receive compensation for their injuries and damages, including but not limited to:  medical  bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and more when they can prove the other party was negligent, at-fault, and/or responsible for their injury.

Arizona’s personal injury liability law helps investigating agencies, claims adjusters, attorneys and even the court evaluate who and how the responsible party was, in fact, responsible. This includes responsibility for injuries during incidents such as car accidents, falls, dog bites, medical malpractice, and more.

 If you have an injury caused by an automobile accident or a dog bite or one of these injury events and factors, you may have a personal injury case and could be entitled to compensation! Reach out to Jeff GOULD Law today.   All initial consultations are FREE!

2: Level Of Responsibility

The level of responsibility assessed in a personal injury case can impact the judgment and potential compensation awarded to the injured party. There are numerous and various factors utilized to determine the level of responsibility, such as comparative negligence and strict liability.

Arizona uses what is known as a comparative negligence law. This means that if an injured party is proven to be partly responsible for their injury, they may be awarded less compensation (according to the percentage of their comparative negligence fault).  A thorough understanding of this vital component of personal injury law is one of the many tools Jeff GOULD Law brings to the table, ensuring our clients don’t miss out on the total compensation they are entitled to receive!

Strict liability applies to injuries sustained from dog bites. In Arizona, this strict liability law means that a dog owner assumes responsibility for any injuries incurred if their dog bites someone, regardless of where the bite took place and the dog’s previous behavior.  There are 2 well known possible defenses in strict liability dog bites, and those are limited to whether the victim was a trespasser and/or provoked the dog/bite.   At Jeff GOULD Law we handle your dog bite injuries and damages from the start with the dog owner’s homeowners/renters insurance and into litigation to a jury to obtain maximum damages. 

When pursuing a personal injury case, there are many considerations to consider aside from the definition of responsibility. These include the statute of limitations on pursuing legal action and ensuring that your rights are protected during the process.  Given the numerous factors that go into this responsibility assessment, it is crucial to have Jeff GOULD Law on your side to ensure you recover the MAXIMUM COMPENSATION!
