Answer: - Typically we get medical records and bills directly from the actual medical provider’s office, although some of them will utilize a service to collect payment for records and copy and produce records and bills.

Although we sometimes allow patients to collect their own records from providers (providers don’t charge their patients for copies of files), insurance carriers won’t always accept them as they fear the patient may have altered the records and/or removed any negative notes.

However, even when we order and receive records from providers, they are not always complete.
They are sometimes missing the initial paperwork completed by the patient at their initial visit.

Answer: This can be a difficult question. Generally, if the “foreign” object is something that is natural and can be anticipated (a chicken bone in chicken, a hard peanut in an M&M, a seed in fruit), then the food manufacturer may not be deemed negligent, and therefore, not responsible.

Do NOT give them the package or the object. Seek counsel with an experienced personal injury attorney.

That depends on the status of the injury claim. Arizona has a general two year statute of limitations (SOL) for tort injury claims,

so unless you have a tolling agreement or have already filed a lawsuit to otherwise protect the SOL, your case is likely dead and you likely have no further recourse.

 If your claim is a UM (uninsured motorist) or UIM (underinsured motorist) claim, you have three years from the date of the accident to assert (bring) your UM/UIM claim and thereafter you have three additional years to resolve the claim, demand arbitration, and/or file suit.

Simple answer: Yes.

When you have been injured that is another's fault, Arizona law allows you to recover all losses incurred as a result of the accident.

This includes medical bills, property damage and lost wages.

If you are hurt and need some assistance, recovery can also be made for lost wages for the person who takes time off work to assist you. (this is usually most seen in circumstances of a parent helping a child.)

In Arizona, there is no limit on the amount of damages you are entitled to, but the amount of your recovery will depend on the nature, extent and duration of your injuries.

Personal injury claims in Phoenix, Arizona can be very complex. Make sure you have the right personal injury law firm representing you. A law firm that has experience in handling cases that are similar to yours. Experience makes all the difference in these types of cases.
