Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Personal injury cases span a wide range of incidents. The attorneys at Brown & Hobkirk, PLLC have handled many forms of accidents. We have helped our clients with these types of injury claims:
- Car accidents – Every year, close to three million people sustain injuries in car accidents in the U.S. Depending on the severity of the accident, victims can face costly hospital and rehabilitation bills. If you have been forced to pay medical expenses or other bills from the car accident caused by another motorist, you might be eligible for compensation.
- Commercial truck accidents – Semi-truck accidents might not seem very different than car accidents. However, commercial truck accidents present a unique challenge to their victims. Large commercial trucks can inflict devastating damage to cars and the people inside of them. Truck drivers must follow a complex set of state and federal regulations that don’t apply to personal vehicles. When truck drivers fail to follow these rules, they can be held accountable for any injuries they have caused. A skilled attorney with Brown & Hobkirk, PLLC will investigate whether any of those regulations were violated.
- Motorcycle accidents – Motorcyclists can face a heightened risk of an accident. Motorcycles are smaller than cars and often go unnoticed by other drivers. When motorcycle accidents happen, motorcyclists can suffer severe injuries due to a lack of outer protection. If another motorist caused your motorcycle accident, you are likely entitled to compensation for damages you have suffered.
- Bicycle accidents – According to the Center for Disease Control, the United States recorded 467,000 bicycle-related injuries in one recent year. Much like motorcycles, bicycles can be difficult to see on the road and are vulnerable to accidents with cars and other moving vehicles. A bicyclist is likely to be seriously injured in a collision with a motor vehicle. However, proving that the motorist was at fault can be challenging. A lawyer may be needed to establish that the driver was the negligent party.
- Pedestrian accidents – Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are common in the United States. NHTSA found that more than 6,000 pedestrians were killed in accidents in a single recent year, and many more were injured. Pedestrian accidents are often caused by a driver’s failure to pay proper attention to crosswalks or other road signs. Pedestrians may be entitled to compensation when they are hit by a motorist who failed to yield the right of way.
- Dog bites – Dog bites and dog attacks can inflict physical harm. Dog bite victims may also suffer from psychological trauma for weeks or months after the incident. According to a study from the Center for Disease Control, more than four million dog bites occur annually in the United States. About 800,000 victims of those dog bites require medical treatment.In Arizona, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their dog. When a pet dog bites or attacks someone in Arizona, the owner is almost always held responsible.
- Slip and fall accidents – Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries that require extensive medical care. Sometimes, these accidents are completely random. At other times, a slip and fall could have been prevented if the property owner or manager had maintained the property or premises and warned about hazardous conditions. When a slip and fall accident occurs at a private business, the business may be liable for those injuries.
- Wrongful death – When a loved one dies in a preventable accident, grief can be compounded by an extensive list of unforeseen expenses. These expenses can include medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and loss of potential earnings. If you believe that your loved one wrongfully died, because of another person’s malice or carelessness, you might be entitled to compensation for the damages you incurred.

Demanding Full Compensation for Our Clients
Depending on your particular accident, you might be eligible for various forms of compensation. At Brown & Hobkirk, PLLC our attorneys work to recover full compensation for the bills and expenses caused by the accident. That compensation includes:
- Medical expenses – If your accident resulted in medical expenses of any kind, you might be eligible for compensation. Compensable medical costs may include ER visits, ambulance rides, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation and future medical expenses related to the accident.
- Disability costs – If your accident caused a disabling condition, you might be entitled to compensation for any resulting expenses. Disability damages can include necessary medical devices, new car equipment or home renovations that increase accessibility.
- Lost wages and loss of earning capacity – When you are hospitalized for your injury, the accident might have caused you to lose wages or your capacity to earn a living. You might be compensated for the days you could not work. If injuries from the accident forced you to change your career path, you might also be entitled to compensation for your diminished capacity to earn income.
- Pain and suffering damages – In addition to physical injury, accidents can also cause immense mental and emotional pain. Pain and suffering damages address this reality. Many subjective factors are taken into account, such as the mental anguish your accident caused or your inability to take part in activities you once enjoyed.
- Funeral and burial expenses – When your loved one dies in an accident, you may find it difficult and painful to worry about funeral expenses and burial costs. If you are facing this situation, you might be eligible for compensation for those bills.
- Property damage – If another person’s negligence has caused damage to your personal property, you might be entitled to compensation for that property damage. Cars, homes and other items that you must repair or replace fall under this category.
Time Limit for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Arizona
If you have been hurt in an accident and decide to file a personal injury claim, do not delay action. Arizona has a statute of limitations that sets a deadline on an injured person’s time for filing a lawsuit.
Under Arizona law, a person filing a lawsuit for a personal injury claim must generally do so within two years from the date of the accident.
An exception to this rule may exist if the person becomes aware of an injury sometime after an accident. For example, a person may have an internal injury from an accident but does not become aware of the injury until a month later. Under this scenario the two-year clock might not start running until the person became aware of the injury.
The two-year deadline does not apply to all personal injury cases. In some Arizona cases, a victim or the victim’s family must file a lawsuit within just 180 days of an accident. This shortened timeline applies to all claims made against a city, county or the State of Arizona. Those shorter time limits make it crucial to act promptly when filing a lawsuit.
Common Injuries in Accidents
From car accidents to slip and fall cases, personal injury accidents can cause several types of injuries. We have helped our clients with these types of injuries:
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Shoulder damage
- Knee injuries
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
