What is Negligence and Recklessness?
Negligence occurs when a driver or other party does not follow their duty of care to others as they drive or maintain their vehicles. Negligent actions, like distracted driving or failing to fix a broken brake line, can lead to the devastating consequences we have seen on Glendale roads.
Recklessness occurs when a driver or other party does not follow the rules of the road, or makes more erratic decisions. Speeding, or swerving through lanes in an unexpected way, have also caused Glendale accidents.
Are You a Car Accident Injury Victim?
To determine whether or not your injuries were directly caused by the actions of another party, one of our experienced attorneys will conduct an investigation. This process of determining negligence requires foundational knowledge of the law, who to contact, what resources to collect and more.
Some common evidence that our lawyers look into include:
- Police statements
- Witness statements
- Video footage
- Photos of the accident
- Phone data
- Truck logs (if a large truck is involved)
- Maintenance paperwork
- Other claims of faulty part manufacturing
When the investigation is complete, your attorney will determine
- If your car accident injuries were caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party
- If more than one party was ultimately responsible for your injuries. Some types of car accidents in Glendale involve more than one driver, a driver and the car manufacturer, or even the entity responsible for having clear and well-marked roads.
Both of these variables directly relate to the amount of compensation you are owed by the involved insurance companies. But, none of this can begin without hearing your story first hand during your free case evaluation and compensation.
Insurance Companies and Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys
When it comes to insurance companies, the attorneys at Lerner and Rowe are committed to fighting for the maximum amount of compensation possible. These companies work hard to pay you the least possible amount after an accident. Some insurance companies even call you to settle while you’re still in your hospital bed, hoping that an easy deal will entice you to accept less than you deserve.
This is especially troubling as any injury can significantly affect the financial situation of any family in Glendale. In fact, common vehicle traffic accident injuries can reach an average of $155,000 in costs for the victim, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). That’s why we focus on one thing: fighting insurance companies that go out of their way to undervalue your injury claim. You shouldn’t have to shoulder the cost of a lifetime of medical care due to an insurance company’s staunch policies.
What Does an Auto Accident Injury Law Firm in Glendale, AZ Do?
A Glendale car accident attorney will determine the amount of compensation you are owed and negotiate with the insurance companies to fight for the maximum amount of compensation. Sometimes this involves writing multiple demand letters; other times, it involves meeting in the courtroom until a settlement can be agreed upon.
Types of Compensation Involved in an Auto Accident Case

- Medical bills
- Cost of emergency transportation via ambulance and/or helicopter

No matter economic or non-economic, our attorneys weigh each cause and effect of your accident and consider every possible facet of possible compensation before drafting their demand letter. In this way we have the greatest potential to raise the monetary amount you and your family may be awarded.
