    I would highly recommend you seek the assistance of a licensed Arizona Attorney with this matter. Although technically you can file suit pro per without the assistance of Counsel, having seen the disdain for which many Judges view these situations (primarily due to the non-attorney having little or no experience with Civil Procedure and the Rules required in Superior Court) it is probably not in your best interest to attempt to litigate such a claim without assistance of Counsel.

    Much of the answer to your question will depend upon the quality of your video and the credibility of your witnesses. In order to give you a proper evaluation of your case, there are many questions that need to be answered as to "who were the witnesses?" "where did the video come from?" etc. There are two things you will want to do right away, 1. Make an appointment with a local personal injury attorney that offers a free consultation and let them evaluate all of the evidence you have, so...

    Assuming there are no outstanding liens and you have agreed upon a total settlement amount within a week you should receive either a Release Agreement from the responsible drivers insurance carrier. Once the Release Document has been reviewed and signed you will then want to be sure to make copies and send the original Release Documents back to the Insurance Company Certified Return/Receipt so you have proof of mailing and in exchange for your Executed Release Document the Insurance Company...

  4. Is 40% to much for Personal Injury Attorneys fees

    While not excessive, 40% is still on the high range of what you should be paying in a contingency fee agreement. For the most part the industry standard based on my experience has been about 1/3 or 33.3 percent. However, there are also quite a few other questions that would change the analysis, who is the lawyer, experience, success rate, location, case difficulty, reputation, is your case in litigation, etc. I have even seen some Personal Injury Attorney fees as low as 25%, but be weary if...

  5. Is there statue of limitations on the amount of days to receive a settlement check from MVA? (Arizona)

    The only Statute of Limitations pertains to the 2 year SOL within which you must have settled a Civil Personal Injury Claim or filed a lawsuit to preserve the Statute and avoid being time barred from recovering. If you have executed a release document and returned the document to the insurance company then the process should not take more than 2 weeks for the check to be issued and sent to your Attorney. Your Attorney will then be required to deposit it in his Attorney Trust Account until any...

    Farm Bureau is a long standing Nationwide Insurance Carrier that will handle your claim in a very similar fashion to any of the other well known carriers that exist in the auto insurance industry. Each company will have their own methods for evaluating the "value" of cases for personal injury claims. In the end, unless you are dealing with a local insurance carrier that you have never heard of, and only carries policies for the state minimum required by law, your case will be evaluated a...

    You need to inform the insurance carrier that was not domiciled at your residence at the time of the accident and has not been since. If she has a legal form of i.d. that establishes your residence as her current address the insurance carriers will likely provide coverage through the policies owned by people who actually reside at your address and those claims will follow the insured for years causing increased premiums and difficulty obtaining coverage in the future. If a claim is made...

  8. I hit a horse and wrecked my car who is responsible for damages

    The owner of the horse is responsible for the damages caused if the horse is not properly secured to avoid forseeable situations such as the animal escaping an unlocked gate and causing damage to person or property. The most likely approach to successfully recovering the damages caused by this incident is to make a claim against the horse owners property insurance carrier. Thus, you will need to obtain the policy number and insurance company that provides coverage of the home owners insurance...

    Although it may seem like no brainer this can be a very complicated question. While many people involved in low speed, low impact Motor Vehicle Accidents will not sustain serious personal injuries, the mere fact that the impact was at a lower speed causing less damage to the property however does not necessarily preclude a person, especially one that may be more pre-disposed to such an injury because of their physical condition from suffering a new injury or exacerbation of a previously...

    If you are unhappy with the liability position taken by the other drivers insurance carrier, and you believe the basis for the liability apportionment relies upon incorrect information, or a mix up with respect to the applicable facts, it is best at this point to review the police report to determine if there may be any independent witnesses contained in the report or referenced that may be able to support your position. It is always best to have an independent witness that can corroborate...
