First 48 Hours After an Accident

If you’ve been injured in an accident in Arizona, the first 48 hours can be crucial in laying the groundwork for your long-term recovery. Whether due to a car accident, slip and fall, or dog bite, your health should always be your top priority. Early treatment of your injuries is important for your physical recovery and your case.

Seeking out a medical professional can also help curb long-term damage if you’ve hit your head or strained your back. Many symptoms of injury involving the brain or spine won’t manifest for days or even weeks after an accident.

Car Accidents

In 2016 alone, almost 130,000 families were affected by car accidents in Arizona. Many of these accidents include:

  • Fender benders
  • T-bone crashes
  • Head-on collisions

It’s hard to plan for an auto accident, and even harder to recover on your own afterward. Your best bet for a strong car accident claim lies in the immediate aftermath of your collision. Our accident attorneys navigate the complicated claims process on your behalf so you can focus on getting better.

Slip and Falls

Hazardous walking surfaces are behind more than 50% of all slips, trips, and falls. Common accidents often involve:

  • Wet floors
  • Debris-cluttered spaces
  • Defective sidewalks

Due to their amendable nature, it can prove difficult to recreate the circumstances of your slip and fall accident after the fact. This gives the insurance company the opportunity to deny the claims of victims who don’t have a lawyer.

With one of our injury attorneys by your side, your claim finally gets the upper hand in the fight against the insurance.

Dog Bites

You don’t want to neglect injuries sustained from a dog bite. A dog’s mouth carries hundreds of thousands of bacteria. If a canine manages to puncture your skin with its teeth, that bacteria can infect the wound. Seeking immediate medical attention can be especially important to protect yourself from risk of diseases, such as:

  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • MRSA
  • Pasteurella
  • Capnocytophaga spp.

Time is of the essence when it comes to an accident involving a dog bite. But you won’t have to face it alone with one of our injury lawyers on your team.
