Do I Need an Attorney?

Personal Injury Representation in Scottsdale

Yes, you need a lawyer. Unless you are an attorney, it would be foolish to attempt to handle a serious injury or wrongful death claim on your own. All serious personal injury and wrongful death cases require the assistance of an experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorney, but finding a suitable attorney is not as simple as it might seem. Although there are thousands of lawyers practicing law in Arizona, few have the skills and experience needed to handle complex cases involving wrongful death or truly significant bodily injury claims, particularly when those cases have other complicating issues such as substantial economic losses, permanent disabilities, life care planning and so on.

Searching for a personal injury lawyer in Scottsdale?

If you are the victim of a devastating accident – or if a family member has died because of the negligence, recklessness or intentional act of another person – you are probably feeling overwhelmed, intimidated, confused and frustrated about the emotional and economic problems you are facing now, and the ones that are likely to arise in the future. The Watkin Law Office, PC can provide you with the legal expertise you need. A seasoned attorney who will work tirelessly to prosecute your claim for personal injury or wrongful death damages; and help you recover the money you deserve to fully and fairly compensate you for your physical injuries and pain, your mental and emotional suffering, and the economic consequences that have resulted from your injuries or the death of a loved one.

Does The Thought Of Going To Trial Frighten You? Would You Prefer A Faster And Less Painful Approach?

Unless you have been through this process before, you may not realize that many – in fact most – personal injury cases, and even wrongful death cases, can be resolved without the need to go to trial. Unlike what you see on TV or in the movies, the majority of serious personal injury and wrongful death claims are handled informally, outside of court. Many claims never even proceed to the stage where a formal "lawsuit" must be filed in Court. Your choice of lawyers makes a huge difference here.

Many – again, maybe most – personal injury and wrongful death attorneys never ask their clients how they feel about the time, energy, cost and stress of litigation! Yet, at The Watkin Law Office ,PC we know from past experience that clients' views and fears on these topics vary tremendously. There seems to be a small percentage of clients who feel very strongly that their claim must be formalized by filing a lawsuit and pursued to and through a jury trial, either to "have their day in court" or to "force the other side" to atone for his or her wrongful or negligent conduct. The vast majority of clients, however, seem to prefer to resolve their claim as quickly and painlessly as possible, provided it yields a satisfactory result.

In other words, most injury and death claim clients prefer NOT to have to wait to go to trial, and NOT to have to have their depositions taken, and NOT to have to pay for medical expert witnesses, etc. But despite these overwhelming client preferences, many lawyers rush out and file lawsuits as soon as they "sign up" their new clients, without even discussing the options.

At The Watkin Law Office, PC we will have these and many other discussions. We want to know all about you, your fears, your goals and your preferences. If you are like most of our clients, you will likely prefer that we do all we can to prepare your case thoroughly – as if we will proceed to a jury trial – but continue our efforts to resolve your claims informally with the adverse insurance carrier and thereby avoid the additional time, expense and stress associated with formal litigation – which we can always "fire up" a little later. If we can't "settle" your case out of court, then we head into court. Regardless of your personal preferences, the logistics and strategies of your case will all be discussed. This process must truly be a team effort.
