Phoenix Personal Injury Attorney

Accident Lawyer in Phoenix - Richard W. Shapiro

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, brain or emotional well being, caused by the negligence of another person or company.  The law in Arizona requires people and companies to act in a way that protects others against unreasonable risks of harm.  When that duty is breached and a person is injured, the injured victim is entitled to compensation for all of the harms caused by the negligence of the other person or company.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the jury awards "damages" to the injured victim.  These damages typically include monetary compensation for pain and suffering, grief, disfigurement, loss of income and medical expenses or other costs reasonably required for the treatment of the injury.  In cases involving egregious conduct, the injured person may also be entitled to recover punitive damages. 

There is a broad range of cases involving personal injury.  Among the most common types of personal injury claims are traffic accidents, accidents at work, medical malpractice, injuries caused by defective product, and accidents that occur on the premises of a business.  The Law Offices of Richard W. Shapiro, PLC is experienced and knowledgeable in all of these areas.  If you believe that you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the negligent or intentional conduct of another, please contact us. 

Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful death is a legal term that refers to situations in which a person dies due to the negligence or intentional conduct of another.  The basis for a wrongful death claim is similar to a personal injury claim discussed above.  The primary difference is the severity of injury, which results in the death of a victim. 

In Arizona, liability is established by the Wrongful Death Act, A.R.S. ยง12-611 et seq.  The law in Arizona allows for a recovery of damages by the surviving husband or wife, children, and parents.  Wrongful death cases may arise in several different contexts, including car accidents, medical malpractice, products liability cases, premises liability as well as many others.  The Law Offices of Richard W. Shapiro, PLC is dedicated to make sure that the surviving beneficiaries are fully compensated for their losses.  Our firm is skilled at conducting a prompt investigation of the circumstances surrounding the death, preservation of evidence, and identification of responsible parties.
