The decision to purchase a new or used vehicle is one that requires much consideration. For many Arizona residents, several factors play a role in their decision-making process, including the safety and reliability of a particular model. When a consumer suffers either a serious injury or substantial monetary damages due to a defective vehicle, he or she may have a basis for filing an auto product liability civil suit.
One of the most traumatic events that families may be forced to endure is the loss of loved ones in tragic circumstances. In crashes involving commercial vehicles, the potential for fatalities increases due to the sheer weight of these vehicles. When families have suffered losses due to commercial vehicle accidents, they may decide to pursue recovery of their damages through Arizona's civil court system.
Running a red light is one of the most obvious mistakes a driver can make. When the light is red, it's clear that they're required to stop. Not stopping could result in a crash as traffic from other roads passes through the intersection.
There have been several high-profile deadly encounters between young men and law enforcement. One recent report lists police brutality as a fast-rising cause of death for certain segments of the nation's population. Though not every conflict with law enforcement includes the excessive use of force, Arizona residents who have suffered needless harm from these interactions may be unsure of their rights in seeking justice.
Simple expressions such as "life can change in the blink of an eye" have been heard so often that they no longer seem to hold any meanings. Sadly, they are statements that are proved to be true each day along Arizona roadways as serious auto accidents continue to occur. Families are left to try and pick up the pieces after these devastating tragedies take an unimaginable toll on their lives.
Regardless of whether a patient is well-known, he or she is entitled to the appropriate medical care when they seek treatment of an ailment. In the aftermath of a major surgical procedure, it is not uncommon to experience complications that are usually treated by following the accepted standard of care. However, when providers deviate from that standard and attempt to correct a complication through other means, a patient could suffer irreparable injury. If Arizona patients have suffered as a result, they may have a basis for filing a medical malpractice claim.
