Arizona’s tourist economy is significant, with close to 50 million visitors each year. Famous sites such as the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley bring people to Arizona from around the world. While most people do not anticipate getting into accidents while on vacation, it does happen. If you were injured while visiting Arizona, you need a local lawyer who understands state laws by your side during the claims process. Contact Gerber Injury Law for a free consultation about your case.
One of the most common questions after an out-of-state accident is whether you should hire a lawyer in the state where the injury occurred or in your home state. The answer is typically where the accident occurred. This is where you will need to file an injury lawsuit, if necessary. The laws presiding over your case will also be of the state where the accident happened. If you get into a car accident while visiting Arizona, for example, Arizona’s fault and comparative negligence laws will apply to your claim. It is typically in your best interests, therefore, to hire an attorney in the state you were visiting.
The attorney you select to take your injury case is important to your overall legal experience. The right lawyer can make you feel comfortable and confident during the legal process by answering your questions and addressing your needs. At Gerber Injury Law, our Arizona personal injury lawyers accept cases in a range of practice areas. We have skilled attorneys with more than 22 years of experience.
These are some of the most common accidents that occur to tourists who are visiting Arizona. Our lawyers can accept many other types of cases, however.

Insurance companies tend to take advantage of clients during injury claims. Rather than offering the highest possible benefits under a policy, insurance companies often do the opposite. They try to convince claimants to settle for as little as they can. Protect your rights from day one when speaking with an insurance claims adjuster.
Do not give a recorded statement about your accident in Arizona, as the adjuster can keep it to use against you later. Do not admit fault for your accident. Finally, do not accept the first settlement offered. A lawyer may be able to negotiate it for a higher award on your behalf. You do not have to talk to insurance claims adjusters alone after an accident while visiting Arizona. Hire Gerber Injury Law to have an attorney take over your case instead.
