Typical Injuries in Scottsdale

You are more likely to be injured in a car or truck accident in or near Scottsdale than any other type of accident, according to data* held by the National Center for Health Statistics, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention internal department.

Apart from road traffic accidents, the other common types of injury causing accidents are:

  • slip, trip and fall accidents;
  • construction site and transportation accidents;
  • medical negligence;
  • dog bites.

Only accidents that are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance may involve a personal injury claim. For example, a visitor to a Scottsdale construction site who suffers brain damage from an object falling off a crane would probably be entitled to claim compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the construction company.

If the same accident happened to a worker at the site, he or she would have to file a workers’ comp. claim instead, if that avenue was available to them.

The Personal Injury Lawsuit Process as it Applies to Arizona

Any personal injury claim in Scottsdale follows Arizona state law on these sorts of claims. Personal injury claims must be filed within two years of an injury if the claim is made against a private party.

However, this time limit shortens to 180 days if the claim is against a government entity such as the city of Scottsdale.

Arizona has a comparative negligence system for personal injury, which means that the amount of compensation awarded depends on the percentage of blame which you have been considered to have been responsible for.

Personal injury claims do depend on being able to prove negligence occurred and that the act of negligence contributed to your injuries.

Arizona has no caps on the amount of compensation claimed which some other states have legislated. Personal injury claims are most likely to be filed through a civil court like the Scottsdale City Court at N 75th Street, Scottsdale, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekday except for public holiday. The actual court may depend on the amount of compensation claimed.
