Get Help After an Accident
Free Consultation with Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal injury victims are those who sustain injury through the fault of another. The action (or inaction) of another may constitute negligence. Personal injury encompasses a broad range of cases, from car accidents to slip and fall injuries. Most personal injuries cause physical, emotional and financial hardships. After a personal injury, Phoenix attorney Cliff Levenson can help you receive the compensation you deserve. Please contact us today.
Car accidents are perhaps the most common type of personal injury. Unfortunately, insurance companies want an injured party to accept as little money as possible in compensation for property damage and injuries. Cliff Levenson and his staff have years of experience helping auto accident victims with property damage claims as well as personal injury claims. If your car or other property has been damaged, then Cliff will negotiate your property damage settlement free of charge in most cases. In an auto accident case, Cliff will not charge a fee if he does not recover money for you. If you or a loved one has been in a car accident in Arizona, or if you have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, then talk to our Phoenix personal injury attorney.
Slip and Falls
Slips and falls can be scary and can lead to serious injuries in some cases. People who slip and fall on another person’s property due to unsafe conditions may be eligible for compensation. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe and for warning visitors of any potential hazards. For example, if a supermarket mops the floor and does not mark the area to warn consumers, then the supermarket may be legally liable for a slip and fall injury occurring in that location. Similarly, a homeowner who fails to warn guests of a broken step may be liable for his guests’ injuries.
Dog owners are responsible for ensuring that their pets do not cause harm to others. When a dog attacks a person, the resultant injuries can sometimes be severe, requiring emergency and ongoing medical treatment. Scars and disfigurement can occur in serious cases. In the worst scenarios, victims may die. Children are often bitten by dogs after unknowingly provoking them. In most cases, the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance handles injury claims. If an attack happens while the victim is legally on private property (as an invited guest, to deliver mail, etc) or while the victim is on public property, the owner is typically liable under dog bite laws as long as the victim was not intentionally and persistently antagonizing the animal.
Losing a loved one is by far one of life’s most difficult experiences, and when that death came about because of someone’s negligent or wrongful behavior, pain is often redoubled. A drunk driver who kills a pedestrian; a surgeon whose negligence costs a patient his or her life; a manufacturer whose failure to check a product’s safety leads to a consumer death — these are some examples of cases for which you may have cause for a wrongful death lawsuit. If you have lost a loved one due to the fault of another person or group, then our firm can help you receive wrongful death damages.
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that safety hazards on their land do not cause harm to guests. Homeowners with pools, for example, must take steps to protect visiting children from danger. If a danger is present, the property owner must clearly mark it to prevent harm. For example, after mopping the floor, the store must post signs to warn customers. Except in cases of trespassing, property owners are liable for injuries that occur due to preventable hazards on their premises. Even if a property owner is not aware of the hazard, the law may say that he or she should have known about the problem. If you were hurt on another person’s property, you may be eligible for compensation.
