What is Personal Injury Law?
When someone is wrongfully injured due to an accident they had little to no involvement in causing, they can sue the party responsible for their injuries. The injured party is referred to in legal terms as the “plaintiff” and the accused is known as the “defendant.” The defendant can be an individual, multiple parties, or a company depending on the cause of the accident. For example, if you were injured at work, the defendant may be your employer. However, if you were hurt in a motor vehicle collision, a single motorist may be identified as the at-fault party.
The plaintiff can sue the defendant for monetary compensation. If the plaintiff wins, this relieves them of the burden of having to cover expensive medical bills and other accident-related expenses on their own. A plaintiff can sue for any losses or “damages” incurred as a result of their accident, so the actual amount of compensation that is awarded varies case by case.
Damages Available in a Personal Injury Claim
Recoverable damages include:
- Any medical expenses incurred, such as hospitalization costs, medication, surgery, counseling, physical therapy, and more
- Funeral expenses and death benefits (in the event someone is killed)
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering endured
- Property damage repair or replacement costs
- Earnings lost from having to take time off work
- Punitive damages (in rare cases)
- Other out of pocket expenses related to the accident

Don’t Face the Big Insurance Companies on Your Own
It’s important to have a dedicated personal injury attorney as your partner when you’re filing a claim related to an injurious accident. By helping you hold negligent or reckless parties accountable for their actions, a seasoned Phoenix personal injury attorney such as Erin Evans or Reid Garrey can prevent insurance companies from acting in bad faith and unjustly denying, reducing, or delaying the compensation that should be yours. Each case is unique, and we’ll handle it with the dignity and respect it deserves.
Know Your Rights After an Accident
It’s not enough to know you’re in the right when filing a claim—you’re going to have to demonstrate this during negotiations or at a trial. This is an arduous process that involves gathering evidence, figuring out how much your claim is worth, writing letters to responsible parties and their insurance companies, and much more. Having a dedicated Phoenix personal injury attorney at your side when filing your claim gives you a leg up every step of the way.
