If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in an accident, through little to no fault of your own, the law allows you to sue the negligent party or parties to compensate for losses suffered.
We represent clients in common areas of personal injury law like:
- Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices
- 3M Military Ear Plugs
- Auto Accidents
- Breast Implants
- Construction Accidents
- Defective Design
- JUUL Vape
- Product Liability
- Truck Accident
- Wrongful Death
When more than one vehicle is involved in a crash, negligence is a factor in a third of non-fatal and nearly half of all fatal collisions. The other driver may have been speeding, failing to yield right-of-way, driving under the influence, using a cell phone, or otherwise distracted at the time of the crash. Victims and their family members may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
Manufacturers can be held liable for placing a defective product on the market and for failing to warn consumers of known risks associated with their products. Products liability lawsuits often involve dangerous drugs and defective medical devices that made people sicker, rather than helping them. Some of the largest products liability lawsuits of the last decade include faulty ignition switches in General Motors vehicles, the failure of Philip Morris Tobacco Company to warn of known risks associated with smoking, rupturing Dow Corning silicone breast implants, and Owens Corning asbestos building materials. Most recently, Showard Law Firm has been involved in the growing litigation against Monsanto for their Roundup Weed Killer – which, according to over 550 lawsuits, may cause cancer.
Wrongful death lawsuits are some of the most heartbreaking cases to litigate, but also some of the most rewarding when we can provide some measure of peace to a grieving family. No amount of money can ever bring a loved one back, but pursuing a personal injury lawsuit can help prevent similar tragedies from happening to others. When a loved one has died, it is always worth taking a more in-depth look at the factors surrounding that death to see if it could have been prevented. Remember, you pay nothing for a team of our investigators to look into the matter, and only owe a legal fee if Showard Law Firm wins money on your behalf.
How to Choose a Personal Injury Attorney in Tucson
We invite you to contact Showard Law Firm for a free, no-obligation consultation with experienced personal injury attorneys. During this initial meeting, we’ll ask you about the circumstances surrounding your accident, the nature of your losses, and let you know what you can expect from us. Together we can discuss how much your case is worth and the factors that go into determining a personal injury settlement.
You’ll also want to make sure we’re a good fit for your needs. Questions to ask a Tucson personal injury lawyer include:
- How long have you practiced as a licensed attorney, and as a personal injury attorney?
- Has your license ever been suspended or revoked?
- Will you be the person handling my case?
- How many cases like mine have you dealt with?
- What percentage of your cases do you settle before trial?
- What are the results of your court and jury trials?
- Are you an active member of a trial lawyers association?
- Can you provide me with references and testimonials?
Many people make the mistake in choosing a personal injury lawyer based on ads alone. Knowing how to choose a personal injury lawyer takes knowledge of what makes one firm different from another. Some unscrupulous lawyers seek fast settlements, thriving on high volumes and “successes” – even if it means their clients receive less than they deserve.
The best law firms have the resources and experience to take your case all the way to trial if necessary, and never let you settle for anything less than you deserve. Avoid lawyers who demand money upfront to pursue your case. Showard Law Firm puts in the time, effort, and resources into building an irrefutable case that can win maximum compensation for your losses.
