Our Personal Injury Practice at a Glance

Our personal injury practice includes any accident which leaves someone with serious injuries. Our law firm can assist anyone with:

  • Car Wrecks. San Luis experienced 186 total car accidents in 2022, which injured more than 40 people. There are many causes, including distraction, fatigue, and carelessness. We can submit a personal injury claim on the at-fault driver’s liability coverage or sue the driver personally.
  • Trucking Accidents. Large trucks are a clear danger on the roads, due to their size and speed. They can completely crush a smaller vehicle in a rollover, jackknife, or override accident. Our firm can file a claim against the at-fault party, including a trucking company or loading company.
  • Motorcycle Accidents. Motorcyclists suffer serious injuries in any collision due to a lack of protection. Accident victims deserve a sympathetic lawyer, because some insurance companies blame bikers for their own wrecks.
  • Defective Products. A defect product can explode or catch on fire, injuring consumers and bystanders. Arizona law holds manufacturers strictly liable for defects with design or manufacture. Call us to find out more.
  • Dog Attacks. Dogs can bite innocent people and cause long-lasting injuries, including infection and nerve damage. In Arizona, we can hold owners and possibly other parties liable for any dog bite.
  • Medical Malpractice. Doctors and other medical professionals must follow the standard of care when treating patients. If they don’t, you could end up more badly hurt than before. We can bring a medical malpractice case based on diagnostic errors, medication mistakes, surgical errors, and more.
  • Wrongful Death. If a loved one died in an accident, call us. You might have the right to file a wrongful death claim.

Evidence for Your Case

Tucson Bus Accident Attorney | Karnas Law FirmWe rely on different pieces of evidence to uncover what happened:

  • Your memories. It’s okay if the event was a blur. Any information you share is a good starting point to launch an investigation.
  • Witness statements. Third party witnesses help us visualize how an accident happened. This is one reason to talk to bystanders, if possible, after an accident.
  • The defendant’s admissions. Some defendants will admit to doing something wrong, like drinking before driving. We can use these admissions against them in our settlement negotiations or lawsuits.
  • Physical evidence. Various pieces of physical evidence help us reconstruct a traumatic accident. For example, we want to inspect any defective product that burned or electrocuted you.
  • Video recordings. Some accidents are caught on video. For example, surveillance video in a store can capture an accident. The same is true of collisions that happen outside a store or gas station. Other vehicles have dash cams attached.

Financial Compensation & Bodily Injuries

Car Accident Chest InjuriesPersonal injury is a type of civil law. The goal in civil law cases is to hold a defendant liable for your injuries and seek compensation in return. Our San Luis personal injury lawyers pay close attention to your current bodily limitations, as well as your bills. We use this evidence to calculate a fair settlement amount for your case:

  • Economic losses: Medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, property damage, car damage, and lost income or wages.
  • Non-economic losses: Physical pain, discomfort, emotional anguish, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Wrongful death damages: Fair and just compensation, which can include loss of financial support, lost earnings, and medical expenses.

Several factors go into calculating a settlement. For example, Arizona recognizes comparative negligence when your own careless actions contribute to an accident. Under A.R.S. § 12-2505, you can receive compensation, but your financial recovery gets reduced by your share of fault.

Is Karnas Law Firm the Right Choice for You?

We are proud of the clients we have helped over the past 40 years. Karnas Law Firm focuses on personal injury law so that we can provide the depth of representation accident victims need. The defendant will have a large insurance company protecting him from liability, so you need your own legal team.

Our firm has obtained several seven- and eight-figure jury awards or settlements for clients. We credit our ability to:

  • Visualize an accident in detail. We don’t simply rely on any investigation performed by the police. We can also search out relevant evidence, such as eyewitnesses no one has spoken to. Armed with this information, we can reconstruct your accident.
  • Relieve our clients of stress. The days following a wreck will be filled with trips to the doctor or hospital, as well as pain. Let us do all the detailed legal work, including answering questions from insurance companies.
  • Devise negotiation strategies that work. Karnas Law has enjoyed success negotiating settlements for our clients. We credit our creativity, flexibility, and experience. There is no trick an insurance company can pull that we haven’t seen before.
  • Litigate to victory. Although we settle most cases, we are fully invested in filing a lawsuit if necessary to obtain compensation.

Please conduct your attorney search without delay. Arizona’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases is only two years, in most situations. A judge can bar any claim if you don’t file it before the deadline.
