Phoenix Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents happen quickly and unexpectedly, throwing your life into disruption on many levels.  The after effects of a car or motorcycle accident aren’t just about getting your vehicle repaired and back on the road, but about getting your life back to normal; physically, psychologically and financially.  If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a traffic accident, getting life back to normal can be a painful and frustrating experience and your life may never be the same.

My Phoenix personal injury team at Clarke Law Offices can help you with the aftermath of an accident.  We will work with your insurance company to help get your vehicle repaired and your medical expenses paid.  We can also help determine whether the accident was at the fault of a third party, even if the local police respondents cited you for the traffic accident.  Traffic accidents can happen for a variety of reasons including driver negligence, recklessness, unsafe and unmarked road conditions, and even vehicle design failure.  If the accident isn’t entirely your fault, you deserve to have someone fight on your behalf to get the settlement that you deserve.

Here is a list of clients we represent in Phoenix personal injury claims:

  • Car Accident
  • Trucking Accident (Semi-Truck / 18-Wheeler)
  • Rollovers and Tire-Tread Separation
  • Motorcycle Accident
  • Bus Accident
  • Pedestrian Accident

 

Slip and Fall

Did you know that property owners have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition?  When this duty is not met, it can result in a personal injury and the property owner may be liable to pay for the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages now and in the future, disability, and treatment for a previous injury that has been aggravated due to their failure to maintain their property.  Dangerous conditions that you may have encountered in a mishap might include: unmarked wet floors, poor lighting, missing or unsafe handrails, uneven flooring and other hazards.

It is important to seek a Phoenix personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you have suffered a fall due to a hazard that could have been prevented.  My law office, Clarke Law Offices, will guide you in taking action immediately in order to protect your rights, including: an inspection and photographing of the location, interviewing witnesses, and obtaining a medical evaluation and treatment of your injuries.

At Clarke Law Offices, we know what your rights are and will be with you every step of the way in obtaining the settlement that you deserve.

 

Elder and Nursing Home Abuse

When you decide to put the care of an elderly loved one into the hands and care of another, you are trusting that the person or facility will provide the same standard of care, or better, that you would provide yourself and at home.   Unfortunately, sometimes our loved ones endure abuse and neglect at the hands of a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Abuse and neglect can take many forms and can be subtle and not always visible to the naked eye.  The signs of abuse may include:

  • Death
  • Broken bones, sprains and bruises
  • Bed Sores
  • Dehydration
  • Weight Loss
  • Poor hygiene
  • Soiled bedding
  • Significant change in mood for the worse
  • Residents appear sedated
  • Complaint of mistreatment

If you suspect that your loved one is being mistreated, or have observed any of the signs listed above, let us know if we can help you.  Call my Phoenix law office or submit an online evaluation form.  Even if you are unsure that abuse or neglect is taking place, it is worth looking into to protect the safety and dignity of your loved one.
