At the Fitzgibbons Law Offices, P.L.C., we represent clients throughout Central Arizona who have been injured in an accident or by another's negligence or wrongful act. Whether you are located in Casa Grande, Coolidge, or the counties between Phoenix and Tucson, our attorneys have the skills and experience to help you obtain the maximum compensation for the damages you have suffered. In particular, we assist injured plaintiffs in the following types of cases:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common source of personal injury lawsuits, and often result in serious injuries. Our attorneys frequently represent plaintiffs harmed in accidents involving automobiles and cars, motorcycles, commercial trucks, and bicycles. We also represent pedestrians who have been hit and injured by a motor vehicle.
Companies have a duty to design and manufacture products that are safe for consumers to use. They must also provide warnings and instructions that inform consumers of the safety risks of using a particular product. In the event a party fails to live up to this duty of care, and injuries result, we can help. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience handling cases involving defective automobile parts, tires, industrial equipment, and consumer products.
Under Arizona's dram shop law, restaurants, bars, and other establishments that possess a liquor license can be held liable for a drunk driving accident if the establishment knew or should have known the customer was drunk and served alcohol anyway. As these cases can often be difficult to prove, seek experienced attorneys with extensive experience in dram shop matters.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, hospital, or health care facility fails to live up to the accepted standard of care. These cases can be complex and often require the consultation and testimony of expert health care professionals who can analyze the circumstances in a particular case and determine the precise cause of the injury. To ensure the best possible result in medical malpractice cases, our attorneys work with a range of experts to identify liability and calculate the full extent of the damages suffered by the plaintiff.
Nursing Home Abuse
Cases of nursing home abuse and neglect can be difficult to identify, as sometimes an elder's physical or mental condition makes it difficult for them to realize or communicate to loved ones that abuse is occurring. This makes it important for relatives to visit elders frequently and take note of any physical or emotional changes or characteristics that might indicate that abuse or neglect is occurring. If you suspect an elder family member is the victim of abuse, contact the Fitzgibbons Law Offices, P.L.C., as soon as possible.
Sometimes, accidents and injuries occur because of government negligence or misconduct. This can include defective roads or sidewalks or police misconduct. The important element in these cases is that notice of a claim must be filed against the governmental entity (city, county, or state) within 180 days of the incident, and the lawsuit itself must be filed within one year.
Accidents that occur on construction sites often result in serious injuries. To ensure maximum compensation, our attorneys pursue recovery from all potential sources of liability, including from the manufacturers of defective equipment or any negligent parties.
Property owners and managers have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe from hazards and dangers. When an accident occurs on someone's property due to an unsafe condition, recovery might be available from the manager or owner. However, these cases can be complex because the evidence that could prove an inadequate warning or hazard is often easily fixed or removed. If you have been injured due to unsafe premises, we will work to fully investigate your case and uncover all evidence to conclusively determine liability.
Under Arizona Law (section 11-1025), the owner of a dog can be held liable for resulting damages if the dog bites a person, regardless of whether the owner previously knew that their pet had a tendency to bite people or not.
