Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
When you are injured due to the careless, reckless, or negligent conduct of someone else, you have the right to pursue a personal injury claim. The purpose of filing a claim is to seek financial compensation for the losses you suffer due to the accident or injury, such as unexpected medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. When navigating this process, it is important that you have a skilled personal injury attorney by your side.
There is no law that requires you to hire a personal injury lawyer—but there are many reasons to do so. Numerous studies have shown that people who work with a lawyer are far more likely to receive faster, higher settlements than people who attempt to resolve their personal injury cases on their own. This is because insurance companies know that people who hire attorneys are not willing to settle for less than their cases are worth, even if that means going to trial.
At Cook Law Office, PLLC, our Phoenix personal injury attorneys can assist you by:
- Helping you locate a good doctor and receive proper medical care
- Gathering applicable evidence and necessary paperwork/documents
- Preparing your case for negotiation and/or litigation
- Working with the insurance company on your behalf
- Representing you in the courtroom if necessary
Throughout the process, we will be consistently available to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide the personalized legal counsel you need to feel confident in your case. From our office in Phoenix, we assist victims of all types of tragic accidents and catastrophic events, including car crashes, motorcycle wrecks, commercial truck accidents, rideshare vehicle collisions, and more.

Personal Injury FAQs
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
Most personal injury cases rely on the issue of negligence. You may have a case if you can prove that the other person or party (known as the “defendant”) had a legal responsibility to act reasonably but failed to do so, resulting in your injury and/or damages. In other words, if someone else was at fault for your injuries and losses, you likely have a personal injury case.
What is the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in Arizona?
The statute of limitations, or time you have to file a lawsuit, is two years from the date of injury. If you fail to file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of being injured or within two years of discovering the injury, you will lose your right to recover compensation.
What damages can I recover in my personal injury claim?
Depending on the specific details of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages: medical expenses, lost income/wages, pain and suffering, future medical care costs, future lost earnings, lost earning ability/disability, counseling, rehabilitation, and other miscellaneous expenses related to your injury. The exact value of your claim, as well as the specific damages you may be able to recover, will depend on numerous factors unique to your case. Reach out to our Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Cook Law Office, PLLC to learn more during a free initial consultation.
How is pain and suffering calculated?
The value of your pain and suffering depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, the extent of your damages, and the level of trauma you endured due to the accident, among others. Generally speaking, the more severe your injuries, the more extensive your pain and suffering are considered to be. Someone who sustains a traumatic brain injury that leaves them permanently disabled and unable to work will logically experience more pain and suffering than someone who breaks their arm in a crash and is expected to make a full recovery.
Why should I hire Cook Law Office, PLLC?
It can be difficult to find the right personal injury team to represent you. At Cook Law Office, PLLC, we go above and beyond for our clients, offering personalized service and support throughout the legal process. Unlike many other law firms, we do not treat our clients like case numbers. Instead, we fight for the maximum recovery you are owed, even if that means taking your case to court.

How do I pay a personal injury lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers, including ours at Cook Law Office, PLLC, provide legal services on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay anything upfront when you hire our firm. Instead, our attorneys collect their fees via a percentage of your total recovery. In other words, if we do not recover compensation for you, we do not get paid. If you would like to learn more about our pay structures and fee agreements, please contact us today.
