Tempe Personal Injury Attorney

Tempe Personal Injury Attorney

If you or a loved one was in a Tempe personal injury accident, you understand how devastating it can be. A personal injury resulting from someone else’s negligence comes with frustration, confusion, pain, and, all too often, financial stress. 

As you deal with an injury’s physical, emotional, and financial stress, the last thing you need is an ongoing hassle with insurance companies or the negligent party while still reeling from the accident. Insurance companies will also work hard at any excuse to minimize the amount they pay you. 

Consult The Sorenson Law Firm LLC to speak with an experienced Tempe personal injury attorney. As your attorneys, we will help you obtain the compensation you and your family need to get your life back on track.

    What to do After a Personal Injury Accident

    Protecting your legal rights isn’t usually your first concern when you suffer an injury. Taking simple steps now can save you time and effort if you seek legal action. Stay calm and follow these steps after a personal injury to prepare for your legal case. 

    • Seek medical attention: Get the medical assistance you need in an emergency room or with your regular physician.
    • Gather all evidence: Photos, police reports, medical records, witness information, and insurance information about the individual who injured you.
    • Ensure your medical providers bill your health insurance if you have coverage.
    • Keep detailed records of the medical expenses you incur. 
    • Keep detailed records of the time you are required to be off from work and any associated lost wages. 
    • Consult a personal injury attorney before recording any statement or speaking with the insurance company. The attorney helps you understand the options available when deciding how to proceed with your personal injury case. 
    • Get some rest: Resuming normal activities or returning to work may worsen your injuries.

    Personal Injury Cases Handled by The Sorenson Law Firm LLC 

    Experiencing a personal injury accident in Tempe, Arizona, can be stressful and traumatic and have a significant impact your life. You may feel overwhelmed by the suffering, pain, unanticipated medical bills, the loss of wages, the inability to work, and the prolonged healing process. 

    Despite the type of accident, The Sorenson Law Firm is ready to represent you. Here are the types of accidents we handle:

    • Motor vehicle accidents
    • Trucking and commercial vehicle accidents

    • Labor law accidents

    What Compensation is Available for Personal Injury Claims?

    The compensation awarded will differ depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding an injury victim’s case. Before a case begins, predicting the amount an injury victim will ultimately receive is impossible. 

    Why? Because a wide variety of factors are taken into account when calculating compensation. Our goal at The Sorenson Law Firm is to ensure our clients receive the most compensation they are entitled to economically and non-economically.

    Below, we’ll discuss some factors determining the amount of compensation you might receive. 

    Economic Compensation 

    The term refers to an injured party’s compensation for relatively easy-to-estimate losses. Among the most common forms of economic compensation are:

    • Medical bills
    • Lost income
    • Out-of-pocket expenses
    • Losses and damages to property

    Can You Sue for Pain and Suffering in Arizona? 

    Under Arizona personal injury law, an injury victim may seek non-economic compensation or “pain and suffering damages.” This may include:

    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Mental and emotional distress
    • Loss of quality of life
    • The loss of a spouse’s consortium

    Handling claim logistics while recovering can pose a significant challenge. At The Sorenson Law Firm, we handle the logistics so that you can focus on what is important—your recovery and getting back to your normal life. 

    How Long Will the Settlement in a Personal Injury Case Take?

    That is a difficult question to answer. Each case is different, and the speed of the resolution will depend on the actions taken by the other party. However, our experienced Tempe personal injury attorney will work to help you reach a settlement as quickly as possible.

    Moreover, you need time to assess the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life. An average personal injury case may take anywhere from a few months to three years to resolve.

    How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Charge in Arizona?

    With The Sorenson Law Firm as your Tempe personal injury attorney, you can expect the following:

    • Free consultation and evaluation of your case: For an appointment with one of our attorneys, please contact us anytime or complete our online form.

    • Successful track record. Settlements and verdicts have netted our clients millions of dollars.

    • We have established relationships with experts who can help us build a good case for you, including medical professionals, accident reconstructionist, economic experts, and others who can provide valuable insight for your case.
    • Trial readiness. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, you can count on us to prepare and present your case persuasively to a judge and jury. 

    What is the Statute of Limitations For Personal Injury in Arizona?

    Statutes of limitations limit how long people must file different legal actions. In most cases, it is necessary to file a personal injury claim within two years of the event that caused the injury. The same two-year statute of limitations applies  (A.R.S. § 12-542)  if the accident results in the death of a loved one in Tempe.

    You cannot recover compensation for your losses if you fail to file a timely claim.

    Call The Sorenson Law Firm today instead of waiting until the filing deadline approaches. Getting an experienced Tempe, AZ, lawyer on board will allow them to gather evidence and conduct a thorough investigation before valuable evidence is lost.

    Let me start off by saying that if your looking for someone who is kind thoughtful professional down to earth easy to communicate with & is very pro active in how they do business & is 100% invested in you & getting the best outcome for whatever your situation may be than I would recommend jonny & rowanna. This was my first time that I needed to find a lawyer who could assist me with my situation. What stood out to me was at the end of our zoom meeting I remember saying to both jonny & rowann that I'm not interested in moving forward because I was more at fault than the lady who hit me so in my mind I'm thinking we'll this guy probably isn't going to want to take my case because it seemed like it would be an uphill battle, & he responded by letting me know that he would like to take my case & see what he could do & bottom line is that you"ll either have more than what you have now or you"ll be in the same situation. So I thought about it for a minute & decided to trust them to see what happens. So from that day on all the way til the case was resolved I've had a great experience with them. Rowanna explained everything to me in a way that was not complicated & always asked me that if had any questions or if I didn't understand she would ask. They are easy to talk with & made me feel like I was important & trying to get the best outcome for me. When my case was complete I was so grateful & appreciated for what they were able to do for me. Johnny & Rowanna are the best & will always have & want the best for you I know because they did that for me. Thanks again CHRISTOPHER

    I worked with The Sorenson Law firm for about 5 months resolving a personal injury claim that occurred during a car accident I was in and I couldn't have been more happy with results. The firm was always responsive, quick to answer any questions I had and I could tell they had my best interest in mind. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer, they're great!

    I cannot recommend the Sorenson Law Firm enough. After an accident, I was in a situation where I knew very little about my options. I reached out to my community for advice and Johnny’s wife was quick to put me in contact with him to get me some help. The insurance company we were dealing with was not the easiest, but Johnny and his team did a wonderful job at recovering my losses and fighting for me. Johnny and his team kept me well informed and educated throughout the process, which meant a lot as I was very naïve and knew very little going into this process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with this wonderful team, and if life ever throws another curve ball, I’ll be sure to use the Sorenson Law Firm again!!!

    Sorenson Law Firm made a tough situation less burdensome for me and my family. Going through the lost of a loved one and having to instill trust in people you don't know is hard. But Johnny Sorenson and his associates were very caring, professional, informative and timely when it came to our case. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs lawyers that actually care about their clients and not just a paycheck. I'm writing this as a thank you to their company and to the team that worked on our case. Thank you!
