Personal Injury Lawyer Chandler

Lawyer with a pen pointing on a paper

Being injured in a car accident can be a traumatizing experience, regardless of the implications. If you suffered minor or severe injuries, the insurance companies may take advantage of you being scared and attempt to minimize the compensation you are rightfully entitled. Before considering taking the settlement offered to you by the insurer, discussing your legal options with a personal injury lawyer is vital. Do not allow insurance companies to pay you less than what is reasonable for your personal injury claim. 

Here at Wattel & York Accident Attorneys, our Chandler personal injury lawyers are committed to helping you receive the compensation you deserve so you can get back to your normal life. You will not have to worry about any upfront fees when you meet with us. By working on a contingency basis, our law firm only gets paid if your case settles or is successfully prosecuted. Call today to speak with a Chandler personal injury lawyer. 

How Can an Arizona Personal Injury Attorney Help?

Many accident victims do not know what an Arizona personal injury lawyer does for their clients. During your initial consultation, your personal injury attorney will determine if your claim meets the four elements of a viable personal injury case:

  • The party who injured you owed a duty of care
  • The party who injured you breached that duty
  • The accident caused damages
  • You suffered monetary damages

From there, your attorney will provide you with guidance about your healthcare. Additionally, they will begin tabulating your damages. Once they can determine a fair settlement amount that accurately reflects what it will take you to achieve a full recovery, they will approach the responsible party’s insurer. Your lawyer will then negotiate your case or prosecute it through the courts. 

At Wattel & York Accident Attorneys, we provide full representation for every personal injury case. Do not allow yourself to be intimated by insurance companies. They will try various approaches to make you accept their settlement. We understand how an insurance company operates, so we can provide you with the legal help you need to focus on your healing.

Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Accident

After a personal injury accident, you could suffer serious injuries that may or may not require hospitalization or surgeries. For example, car accidents can be an expensive ordeal that amounts to thousands in medical bills, lost wages, or property damage. For personal injury victims, receiving total compensation for a car accident that was not their fault can provide crucial financial support and medical assistance. Under Arizona Law, several categories of damages are available in personal injury claims.

Economic Damages 

These include any monetary costs you incurred due to the accident. If you are injured in an accident, you undoubtedly will face the initial medical bills. You may have to pay thousands of dollars toward your deductible, even if you have quality insurance. If you are in a more severe accident, you may require surgery, physical therapy, prescription drugs, hospital stays, etc. Additionally, you probably will be unable to work, meaning you will experience lost wages. You can seek compensation for any expenses resulting from your accident. 

The most common examples of economic damages include:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Loss of use of property
  • Loss of past and future wages or income
  • Cost of repair or replacement 
  • Loss of employment or business opportunities

Non-economic Damages 

In addition to economic damages, you may be entitled to pursue non-economic damages. These refer to financial compensation for non-monetary losses, including emotional distress, pain, suffering, loss of consortium, loss of companionship, loss of enjoyment of life, or wrongful death.

Under Arizona law, compensation for personal injury cases is based on the rule of comparative negligence. This means a jury must determine the fault the parties involved had in causing the accident. For example, if you have been at fault for 20% of your accident, your compensation will be reduced by 20%. In this case, if you filed a personal injury claim for $100,000, you would be awarded $80,000.

In Arizona, you have only two years from the accident date to file your personal injury claim. While this may seem like enough time, please consider that much evidence can be lost over time. Therefore, the sooner you contact a Chandler personal injury lawyer, the sooner we will fight on your behalf. 

When it comes to wrongful death claims, the two-year period starts at the date of death. For medical malpractice cases, the two-year clock starts at the date your condition is discovered.

Online Reviews

“Amazing people, they had my claim for about a week before they were able to get my truck totaled out. Otherwise I would have been stuck with a truck that had heavy front end damage if they hadn’t stepped in to help me. I tried to deal with my insurance company myself for over a month and that got me nowhere, all I got was a massive headache and a messed up truck. They are very professional and act quickly on your claim. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help.”

Candy J.


“I was in an accident and decided to call Wattel and York. After months of going to a Chiropractor, I finally felt better. When it came time for settlement, the insurance company was making an offer I wanted to accept, Mr. Wattel advised against it and felt the insurance company was shortchanging me. He recommended I file a lawsuit and that will get them to cave. Well, Dave filed suit, and sure enough, the insurance company increased their offer by $4,000! I am very satisfied with how my case was handled.”

Nardeasha S.


“Wattel & York were flat out outstanding with my personal injury case. They made the process painless and kept in constant communication throughout the entire time. Any questions I might’ve had were promptly answered and detail oriented. They gave me crucial advice that I would’ve otherwise not been aware of. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Put your trust in these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Wattel & York.”

Mattew P.


“Thank you so much for all your hard work on our behalf! Thinking I could handle it on my own, I was originally reluctant to take my accident claim to an attorney. But I am SO glad I called you instead. Your people were always helpful, pleasant and responsive at every step along the way. You represented us with honesty and integrity and made a traumatic experience as painless as it could be. And best of all, you helped us get a settlement that was fair and far more than I could ever have negotiated on my own! I highly recommend Wattel &York to anyone who has suffered a personal injury.”

“I was the passenger in a vehicle that was 'T- Boned' at an intersection in 2014. The issues of responsibility and recovery became a difficult and convoluted confusion. I really needed help. This Team at Wattel and York walked me patiently and encouragingly through difficult months, sorting through issues and finally arriving at a satisfactory conclusion. I especially want to name two great and encouraging "warriors" of Wattel and York who directed me along the way..Brian Torba and Melissa Patterson..to them and the whole team I say "Thank You" with heart felt gratitude. Sincerely, God Bless You.”

Robert G.

“Honesty. Integrity. Transparency. Partnership. Wattel & York brought all of these qualities and more to my accident case. I'd love to thank all of the team members who helped me with the process: David Guzman, who conducted the initial interview in my home, Aly Shomar-Esparza, who seamlessly guided me through paperwork and filings, Debbie Harrach, who conducted final review, paperwork revisions and scheduling, and Thomas Grisoni, who counseled me before and attended my deposition. I never felt alone during the arduous process and always knew there was a professional team looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend Wattel & York if you are unfortunately involved in an accident that was not your fault.”

Russ W.

“I was a passenger in a car that got t-boned a few years ago and got a huge gash. I didn't know a lot about lawyers, so I basically just picked one on the flip of a coin. I called Wattel and York and they explained everything, I went into the office and filled out paperwork. Got treatment on my gash over the time I worked with them, glad I did as it opened back up a couple times and bled. They did really good, got me the maximum amount of money, and made sure I was well taken care of. I was updated from time to time so that was good. The only thing I might change is I never got to thank or talk to my lawyer. I think it was because I was already used to dealing with the lady at their Glendale office so they just kept her as my point of contact. So it's okay, I'll thank them with a good review. The last thing I could say about them is months after I thought my case was over they called me and said they had another check for me for a few hundred dollars. Apparently, they negotiated with the hospital I went to after the accident. It was a nice surprise and shows they really had my interests in mind.”

Trent B.

“Wattel & York has been great for me in the past few years. I was involved in a really bad accident while I was on Active Duty in Yuma, Arizona and they have been patient with me every step of the way through a very long process. I would recommend them to anyone thank you for all your help.”

Levy G.

“Appreciate David taking the time to speak with me. He was most kind. From the front line with the receptionist, to him, the firm was a class act all the way around.”

Claire B.

“Dave Wattel represented me and my son on a Personal Injury case from a motor vehicle accident back in 2009. Jake P. handled my deposition and Dave did the Quarterbacking. The insurance company hired NFL referee Ed Hochuli's firm to try and deny our claim. But Wattel & York made it look as easy as Tom Brady on the football field. The result was more than acceptable and my son and I were compensated for our injuries and rehabilitation. Dave Wattel cares about his clients. If I ever find myself in a situation like this again, Wattel & York will be on speed dial!!”
