Personal Injury

In days of old, people used to settle disputes with a vengeance – “an eye for an eye.”  The American civil justice system has evolved to a different standard.  We no longer seek to inflict injury on the person who has injured us.  Instead, our system allows us to seek “money justice” – a judgment that requires a wrongdoer to pay compensation to someone who has been injured.   

Each state has its own set of laws that govern personal injury matters.  And each state is a bit different.   But here are three key concepts that you should know regardless of where you live in the U.S.:

  • If another person’s actions caused you to get hurt (whether they did it on accident or on purpose), you have the legal right to seek compensation from them. 
  • When you file a personal injury claim, you are requiring the person who injured you to be accountable for what they did. 
  • If you win your personal injury claim, you can be financially compensated for any damages that resulted from the incident: a reimbursement for medical expenses, payment for missed time from work, and more general compensation for pain and suffering, psychological and emotional anguish, and loss of enjoyment of your life. 

And here’s where it gets interesting:  More often than not,

As we said, the legal process for personal injury cases varies from state to state, so it’s important that you talk to an experienced, local law firm to make sure you’re approaching your case the right way. The People’s Law Firm primarily handles personal injury claims in the greater Phoenix, Denver/Boulder, and San Diego areas, but we take on cases throughout the states of Arizona, Colorado, and California.  And we have relationships with firms and lawyers throughout the West. Still, have questions?  Call us. We’d love to tell you more.

Why You Need a Lawyer (and How You Can Afford One)

Filing a personal injury claim might sound simple enough, but here’s the thing: injury victims get ripped off all the time — even by their own insurance companies. Having a vigilant, intelligent lawyer on your side from Day 1 dramatically improves your chances of winning your case – and, as a result, collecting your rightful compensation from the person or people who caused your injuries.

Think you can’t afford a lawyer? You can. At The People’s Law Firm, we handle every personal injury case on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t charge you a thing unless we win your case.  You get paid, or we work for free. 

Injury Claims We Handle

These are just a few of the most common personal injury cases we handle throughout Arizona, Colorado, and California. If you, your spouse, or another family member was hurt in one of these types of accidents, call us to discuss your case.  In our firm’s history, we’ve obtained justice for people injured in the following types of cases:

  • Assaults and batteries
  • Sexual assaults and abuse
  • Car Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries
  • Semi-Truck, Tractor-Trailer, and 18-Wheeler Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Insurance Bad Faith and Corporate Accountability
  • Accidental shootings & negligent firearm discharges
  • Products Liability Claims (involving faulty or defective products)
  • Premises Liability Claims (involving injuries occurring on someone else’s property)

Why we’re different

More often than not, defendants have insurance.  These insurance policies pay for legal fees and settlement costs.  And this reality causes many law firms to create extremely close relationships with the insurance companies.  Sadly, these firms would rather settle your case at a discount than risk upsetting the companies they deal with all the time.  These firms long ago decided that they don’t need their client’s loyalty and approval; their new clients are only a billboard or television commercial away. 

That’s where we’re different.  We don’t advertise.  Our cases come from existing clients.  So our loyalty is clear:  You.  When we’re presented with an unfair settlement offer and asked to choose between an insurance company’s interest and yours, it’s an easy choice.  That’s the responsibility that comes with being The People’s Law Firm.
