  • Is there anything I can do to get this case on track?

    Christopher’s Answer

    You need a new attorney. Your attorney’s conduct is unethical. He is placing his personal interests above your own.

    My Daughter was an accident which she was not at fault for she is 20 years old is she able to get a rental car?

    Christopher’s Answer

    There are rental companies in Phoenix that will rent to someone under 25. They are a bit pricier, but if she was not at fault, this should be the obligation of the at fault driver’s insurance carrier.

    You need to consult with an experienced Arizona litigation attorney.
    The big advertising firms cannot help you here. You need a trial attorney, ready to file a lawsuit and fight for you.
    Most offer free consultations. Get educated, and then make your decision.

    Christopher’s Answer

    First, you need to see if there is a legible police report. There likely will be, but it generally takes about 10 days for them to be completed and in the system. Second, you should at minimum consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. The consultation is likely free, so why not take the time to get better educated, before dealing with the insurances companies on what may be a complicated case?

    Christopher’s Answer

    There is some authority in Arizona which allows injured people to file claims for their damages based upon 1) medical incapacity and 2) a defendant's absence from the state. You should not hesitate any further to consult with an experienced Arizona trial lawyer. Understand---not the big advertising law firms. You need an EXPERIENCED TRIAL LAWYER.

  • Can I sue, or do I even have a case?

    I rear ended another person. My airbags did not deploy, later I find out that there was a recall on my airbags but the dealership never notified me of that.

    Christopher’s Answer

    If you sustained injuries, you might have a claim. But keep in mind, airbags deploy at speeds of 150-200 mph, and can themselves cause serious injuries.

    If you can prove your injuries were the result of no airbag deployment and you would not have been injured otherwise, then you may have a claim

    If you want to preserve your right for recovery of FULL damages, do not sign any insurance company releases.
