- Wrongful Death
When a family member dies due to the fault of someone else, a claim for a wrongful death suit can be filed. The difference between a wrongful death and a personal injury claim is that the victim is not bringing forth the suit, but rather a family member or the victim’s estate. An Arizona wrongful death claim is intended to recover damages the survivors have suffered. Recovery of damages for pain and suffering are not allowed in a wrongful death claim. The main reason for a wrongful death suit is to provide monetary compensation for the family that has been emotionally and financially injured due to the death of the family member.
- Car Accidents
At Breyer Law Office, our Arizona car accident attorneys diligently work to uncover every possible contributing factor of an accident. Our goal is to ensure you receive the full compensation for your injuries for which you are entitled. Our legal team is trained to evaluate all the facts surrounding your case using their skill and experience. We handle the investigation so you can concentrate on your recovery. We will even assist you in obtaining medical care and arrange for deferred payment to your medical providers until your case is resolved.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Every year over 50,000 motorcyclists are injured and nearly 2,000 of those are killed in traffic accidents. A large percentage of these injuries and deaths could have been avoided if helmets were worn by the riders and passengers. Statistics show in 2001, there were almost 3,200 deaths and 60,000 injuries due to motorcycle accidents in the United States. Of those injured, 7,000 were between 15 and 20, and of those killed, 36% were between 16 and 29. Male riders made up 90% of those killed.
- Trucking Accidents
Some of the most serious and deadly accidents in the United States involve large trucks. Special handling and a thorough understanding of the federal and state commercial vehicle regulations are required for this type of case. There are guidelines set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that must be followed by the trucking companies. Regulations that affect equipment and the amount of time a driver spends behind the wheel.
- Construction Accidents
The causes of construction accidents can vary depending on the type of job. Falling objects, live electrical wires, explosions, malfunctioning equipment, and slip and fall type injuries are common construction accident hazards on many sites. Negligent general contractors, sub-contractors, vendors, and employees can cause many of these dangers, which often prove extremely dangerous to construction workers at the job site. In fact, construction accidents often cause life-threatening conditions, require amputation or extensive reconstructive surgery, and tragically leave innocent victims with brain injuries, disfigurement, and other conditions that impact their ability to hold down a job or even pay for their own care.
- Nursing Home Abuse
Arizona nursing home cases usually arise from some form of elder abuse or neglect. Sexual, physical, emotional, and financial abuse are all too common in nursing home facilities, and sadly, it is believed that at least 30 percent of these cases are never reported at all. While it can be hard to determine whether your relative is suffering abuse without knowing more about the circumstances, signs like bedsores, lacerations and bruises, and a remote or "flat" affect are good signs that something may be amiss.
- Children's Injuries
The causes of children's injuries are almost as varied as the number of kids in the world. However, a few common injuries seem to be more prevalent: burns, brain injuries that can occur from slip and falls or striking the head, choking on defective products, and injuries sustained in auto accidents. All of these injuries can lead to tragedies that - at their worst - can include life-long effects from the trauma and sometimes require extensive medical intervention, surgeries. In the most tragic circumstances, childhood injuries can even lead to disability or the death of an innocent child.
- Swimming Pool & Drowning Accidents
Obviously, not every drowning or near drowning is somebody else's fault. In fact, many times the person who drowned may have simply been negligent and be responsible for the tragedy that occurred. This is not to place blame on the victim, but simply point out that not every tragedy should result in a lawsuit. However, there are some very common situations where the law does support the victim of the surviving family members of the victim. There are some common examples where a lawyer who has expertise in personal injury and wrongful death claims can be of help after such a tragedy.
- Bicycle Accidents
Bike accidents take place on all kinds of roads, in all types of weather, and under all types of conditions. However, some conditions are more dangerous than others. Generally, intersections are the most dangerous for cyclists, who can experience bike accidents when they are struck by a vehicle that disregard the cyclist's right of way or refuses to yield. Merging, turning, and stopping are all risky actions for cyclists, who are no match for the weight or speed of passenger vehicles.
- Work Related Injury
Arizona laws dictate what claims can be made when somebody is injured while they are working. Many people believe that if they are injured while they are on the job their only course of action is to file a workers' compensation claim. This is often not the case. It is true that workers' compensation does protect most of our Arizona workers. This protection can be very important. However there are many times when Arizona workers' compensation is not adequate. And there are many times that there is a better remedy. When a third party caused the injury – not a co-worker but somebody who worked for separate company or from a dangerous product that was used at work – there are other remedies available.
- Dog Bites
Dog bites can be the most traumatic type of personal injury to a child and adults. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a dog bite in Arizona, you need to hire the services of a good Phoenix personal injury attorney. At the Breyer Law Offices, P.C. you will work with an experienced, aggressive Phoenix personal injury lawyer.
- Slip and Falls
If you have been in a slip and fall accident due to the negligence of others, you need discuss your options with a Phoenix personal injury attorney. At the Breyer Law Office, P.C. we understand what you are going through; the mounting medical bills, loss of wages as well as pain and suffering. We will listen to you and determine if you may be eligible to recover monetary compensation for your injury.
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
When someone receives a brain injury from a sudden physical force the injury is called a Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI. Billions of microscopic fibers that are suspended in cerebrospinal fluid make up the human brain. The brain is protected by the skull which is smooth on the outside with ribbing and pronounced bony structures on the inner surface. When the brain impacts this rough surface in an accident, the result is bruising and tearing that causes brain damage.
- Taxi Accidents
Most taxi drivers are experienced and protect their charges. However, some do not take the safety of their passengers seriously and put their lives in danger with reckless driving, bad decision-making, or other mistakes. Negligence (failure to exercise reasonable care) can often be proven in Phoenix taxi accidents that cause actual injury to the passengers. The law allows passengers who were injured to sue the taxi driver and - in many cases - the taxi company for their injuries, collecting monetary compensation for the costs associated with treating the injury, pain, anxiety, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages, and other costs such as lost earning capacity or the need for future medical care.
- Bus Accidents
The causes of bus accidents can vary widely from incident to incident and can depend on factors like inclement weather, unsafe roads, defective or malfunctioning parts, and driver error. Bus companies are considered common carriers and have a duty to their passengers to avoid negligence and to do what is reasonable to keep their passengers safe. When passengers are not protected, they can legally file a lawsuit against the bus company and attempt to seek monetary compensation for costs associated with the injury and any applicable lost wages, need for rehabilitation or therapy, and pain and suffering.
- Product Liability
Product liability lawsuits have gained increasing prominence over the last several years with the emergence of the tire blowout scandal, the Chinese baby food and dog food disasters, and recalls of products ranging from peanut butter to laptop batteries. In order to have a valid product liability case, an individual must be able to prove that there was some design or manufacturing defect that caused harm. Actual injury with measurable harm has to have occurred to make most such claims viable, and the injury victim plaintiff who brings the Arizona product liability lawsuit must be prepared to present substantial evidence and that usually includes expert witness testimony to prove the claim.
