How We Can Help You Get Compensated for Your Injuries

James Helm, Personal injury Attorney in PhoenixAt TopDog Injury Law Personal Injury Lawyers, we help you get money for your claim in one of several ways.

For example, after a car accident, we’ll take the following steps:

Evaluate Liability 

Your personal injury lawyer will review the accident details and determine all potentially liable parties. This establishes the at-fault driver but also identifies other responsible entities like manufacturers if a defective auto part contributed to an accident.

Assess Full Damage Value 

Your lawyer will put together a complete assessment of both economic and non-economic damages resulting from the accident. This includes medical costs, lost current and future income, and harder-to-quantify pain and suffering damages.

Handle All the Negotiations 

Insurance providers initially offer very low settlement amounts. An attorney negotiates aggressively on your behalf to demand full and fair compensation backed by legal experience. This takes all pressure off the injured party.

Litigate if Necessary 

If a satisfactory settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, the attorney can file a lawsuit against negligent parties to compel higher payouts. Most cases settle out of court, but the threat of trial motivates higher pre-trial settlements.

Ensure You Keep More of What You Deserve

Personal injury lawyers work on contingency fees. Therefore, our attorneys only get paid if you get paid.

Having a qualified personal injury advocate levels the playing field against corporate insurance interests. This allows car accident victims to receive full fair value for their injuries. Our negotiation skills and support regularly result in higher claim checks.

Suing for Medical Malpractice in Birth Injuries Cases

Medical Malpractice Clain in PhoenixWe can help you in a medical malpractice or birth injury case by using the following methods:

Determine Negligence 

Our lawyers will investigate what went wrong by consulting medical experts to review records and provide opinions on whether acceptable standards were breached. Identifying provable negligence is critical.

Assess the Long-term Impact 

Medical malpractice cases such as birth injury claims often have lasting impacts on treatment. Lawyers work with doctors to build a comprehensive lifetime care plan – capturing both current and future medical costs, equipment needs, therapy requirements, in-home care, special education plans, and more.

Maximize Damages 

Beyond quantifiable projected care costs, lawyers also factor in harder-to-quantify pain and suffering damages to ensure adequate compensation. The full level of injury losses and disrupted potential are considered and reviewed.

Finance Litigation Costs

Medical malpractice cases can take years and require substantial upfront litigation financing that ordinary citizens do not have. Attorneys usually cover the costs upfront for expert witness fees, record gathering, depositions, and trial prep.

Compelling Higher Settlements 

Leveraging legal experience and trial readiness, lawyers can motivate higher pre-trial settlements from obstetricians and hospital insurance interests, fearing even costlier jury verdicts against them.

The level of legal firepower personal injury firms bring to medical malpractice claims ensures victims get the lifetime care and financial help they deserve. Justice includes accountability.

Recouping Damages in a Slip and Fall Accident Case: Why These Cases Are Common

Slip and Fall Incident Report in PhoenixSlip and fall accidents are commonly cited in personal injury claims for a few key reasons:


Slip and fall events are extremely common general accidents. Spills, weather hazards, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, and unmarked transitions lead to frequent falls at stores, offices, apartments, hotels, and sidewalks – or a variety of locations.


In a large percentage of slip and falls, reasonable care was not taken to mitigate known hazards. Warning signage, barricading slippery areas, cleaning spills, improving lighting, and maintaining safe walking surfaces are frequently overlooked, resulting in liability.


Falls often lead to serious bodily injury, especially for elderly victims with greater fragility. Broken bones, head trauma, back/neck injuries, and traumatic brain injuries that require extensive medical treatment are not uncommon in bad slips, trips, and falls.


Businesses often keep poor records of hazards reported or incidents that previously occurred on their premises. Lawyers can subpoena this information during litigation to further demonstrate negligence.


Major injuries lead to significant medical expenses, lost income, diminished future earning capacity, and pain and suffering. These costs quickly exceed most businesses’ insurance limits, prompting higher settlements.

Negligence factors make slip and falls a prime source of viable personal injury legal claims where victims have strong chances of recovery.

Liability for Sexual Abuse: Receiving Justice

Phoenix sexual abuseSexual abuse is a horrific violation of personal bodily autonomy and integrity with lasting psychological and sometimes physical harm. While no amount of money can undo the trauma and loss of trust involved, liability and compensation can provide validation and accountability. Some key factors in determining settlements include:

Lifelong Impacts

Sexual violations can lead to PTSD, depression, anxiety, intimacy issues, substance abuse, and self-harm tendencies that require extensive therapy over several decades – all quantifiable lifetime economic impacts in a personal injury claim.

Affording Treatment

Victims should not bear the financial costs of mental health and medical expenses needed to heal from abuse. Personal injury litigation guarantees a fundamental ability to pay for care.

Empowerment and Validation

The public legal process puts power back in the hands of victims, gives them a voice, and formally acknowledges, at an institutional level, the wrongdoing inflicted upon them. Financial wins validate their claims where credible, leading to compensation for suffering.


Public trials, large settlements, and verdicts covered in the media spotlight negligence and criminality – motivating organizations to implement policy changes protecting against abuse.

This leads to better screening, reporting mechanisms, investigation transparency, and accountability for perpetrators of sexual abuse.

While financial wins can support healing, no legal remedies fully mend the pain of sexual trauma. Advocacy and reform remain central. But backing victims’ financial rights and forcing accountability through personal injury litigation is an important lever that also demands institutional changes against abuse.

Getting Compensation for Serious Truck Injuries

Truck Accident in PhoenixTruck injuries tend are usually more severe than other automobile accident injuries due to:

Size Disparity

The much larger size, mass, and tall height of semi trucks means any passenger vehicle colliding with a heavy truck is prone to massive damage and more intense physical trauma. It creates a drastic disparity in crash physics.

Force of Impact

Trucks routinely weigh 20 to 30 times more than the average car. This means the force of their impact on other vehicles and bodies at high speeds makes it hard to survive unscathed – given the principles of kinetic energy transfer. Bones simply can’t withstand this type of crushing impact.

Limited Visibility

The relative inability of truck drivers to see all around their enormous vehicles increases the chances of them unintentionally hitting other cars that are hidden in blind spots. Victims get pinned under or dragged along.

Prevalence of Rollovers

Elevated centers of gravity and shifts in loads make trucks more prone to deadly rollovers. This exponentially increases injury severity and fatality risk to adjacent vehicle inhabitants via extensive blunt force and crushing.


Trucks take much longer to speed up and slow down. Their momentum and inability to swerve quickly cause them to ram straight into other vehicles, resulting in alarming injury severity.

When commercial truck collisions occur, the scale, power, and lack of maneuverability virtually guarantee that passenger vehicle occupants will suffer extensive, if not catastrophic, harm or death from the sheer impact. As a result, survivors face long roads of recovery.

Workers Comp: When You May Be Able to Receive Compensation for a Personal Injury Claim

Workers Compensation Claim in PhoenixTopDog Law Personal Injury Lawyers can help you with your filing for workers’ comp benefits as well as filing personal injury claims for on-the-job injuries that involve a third party, product liability, toxic exposure, or an intentional act.

Common Workers’ Comp Injuries

Workers’ comp injuries often happen when workers suffer from overexertion, a slip and fall, or fall to a lower level. They may also have a bodily reaction to work conditions or strike or get struck by an object.

Other incidents may include a machinery accident (due to improper maintenance), a highway incident, repetitive motion, or violence in the workplace.

Third-Party Liability

If someone other than your employer or a co-worker is responsible for causing your workplace injury, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against that party.

Product Liability

 If your work-related injury directly resulted from a product such as machinery, tools, or safety gear, you can potentially pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer separately from workers’ compensation.

Toxic Exposure

In instances where your work-related injuries stem from exposure to certain chemicals, it may be possible to sue the manufacturers or suppliers of those materials outside the realm of workers’ compensation.

Intentional Acts

If misconduct, assault, or deliberate safety violations committed by your employer caused your workplace injury, bypassing the limitations of workers comp, seek legal advice.

We can determine whether anyone other than your employer bears responsibility for the accident due to negligence.
