What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is typically a bodily injury suffered as the result of an accident:

  • Neck and head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Burns and lacerations
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Amputation

Violent accidents send people to the hospital, while causing pain. In Arizona, you can seek compensation when you find someone else is at fault for these injuries.

Our Personal Injury Services

Karnas Law Firm opened in the 1990s with the goal of helping accident victims obtain meaningful compensation after an accident. Too many people have tried to settle claims on their own. They end up frustrated, confused, and often with little to show for it.

We can help anyone in Rio Rico, AZ injured in the following:

Car Accidents

Motorists in Rio Rico are hurt in sideswipe accidents, T-bones, rear-end collisions, rollovers, and other accidents. They call us because they need help with an insurance claim. We can demand compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance provider or even negotiate with your own uninsured motorist insurer.

Truck Accidents

Collisions involving large trucks are among the worst a person can suffer. These vehicles zoom around Rio Rico delivering goods or hauling away trash. You could be injured in any collision with a dump truck, sanitation vehicle, tractor-trailer, or fuel truck. Injuries tend to be serious, so call Karnas Law Firm to discuss whether you can make a legal claim.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, like all medical professionals, need to prove a high-level of care. When they don’t, patients suffer from misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors, anesthesia mistakes, and other preventable errors. Call our firm. Bringing a medical malpractice claim is tough, and insurance companies are aggressive in defense.

Mass Tort

A mass tort is any accident which injures dozens of people at the same time. A bus accident is a common example. If a bus collides with a truck or goes off the road, everyone on the bus could be injured. Our firm understands the hidden complexity in these cases, so we are ideal at handling your mass tort claim.

Product Defects

Product liability is an important area of personal injury law. Thousands of defective products are on the market, and they pose a danger. Often, a design defect is to blame, or shoddy construction makes the product dangerous. Other products lack critical safety information or instructions and are a danger for that reason. Contact us if any product fails to work properly and injures you. We can seek compensation from the manufacturer of defective furniture, toys, clothing, appliances, or bicycles, among other products.

Premises Liability Claim

Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe whenever they invite someone to visit. A store owner inviting customers inside is a common example. Many hazards on the property lead to accidents: slip and fall, trip and fall, electrocution, or near-drowning swimming pool accidents. We can review whether you can hold the owner accountable.

How Much Can You Receive for Your Injuries?

A personal injury claim seeks financial compensation for:

  • Property damage, like damage to your motor vehicle
  • Income loss, including loss of earning capacity
  • Medical care, such as emergency room treatment and surgery
  • Ongoing medical expenses, such as rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering

Call us so we can review the facts and estimate how much your injuries are worth. No two cases are the same. For example, someone with whiplash and a broken arm might receive less in compensation than someone who suffered a third-degree burn and had her arm amputated. Everything depends on the facts.

One critical consideration is your own negligence. Did your carelessness possibly contribute to the accident? Arizona’s comparative negligence law compares our client’s fault to the fault shared by defendants. You can seek compensation so long as you are not 100% to blame. But the law says your compensation is lowered by your portion of fault.
