Data from the Arizona Department of Transportation indicates that there were nearly 3,000 total accidents in Scottsdale during the latest year of data on file. Out of these incidents, 20 individuals lost their lives, and more than 1,500 individuals sustained injuries.
There may be multiple parties who can be held liable for a vehicle accident. Typically, an investigation is conducted to determine which driver(s) caused the incident. Under Arizona law, the at-fault driver is responsible for paying compensation to others involved.
However, there are times when vehicle accidents are caused by other entities. For example, if a roadway defect causes a crash, the municipality responsible for roadway maintenance may hold liability. Additionally, if a roadway construction company causes a defect on the road, or is responsible for creating a situation that leads to an accident (unclear detours, confusing signs, equipment on the roadway), then the company may hold liability.
Finally, if a defect in a vehicle or vehicle part is responsible for the accident, then a company or manufacturer may hold liability for the incident.
The role of an attorney after a Scottsdale car accident case is multifaceted and begins with determining liability. This will be done by conducting a thorough investigation into the incident in order to uncover all evidence needed to prove fault.
While an attorney is investigating the crash, they will also make sure that their client is thoroughly evaluated by a doctor as well as economic and financial experts. These individuals will help adequately calculate total expected losses so the attorney can vigorously negotiate with the insurance carriers involved to recover maximum compensation for their client.
