Personal Injury Lawyer talking to a client

There’s never an ideal time to be injured in an accident. However, the reality is that the odds of being injured in an accident during your lifetime are overwhelming. The victims in accident cases are typically entitled to compensation from either the responsible party or their insurance company. But pursuing fair compensation through insurance companies without the help of a personal injury attorney can be a daunting task. 

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, slip, and fall accident, or have suffered an injury in any other type of personal injury accident, contact a personal injury law firm in your area. In Glendale, AZ, Wattel & York, Attorneys At Law will offer you a free consultation. Call today to get immediate, effective representation from an experienced personal injury attorney. 

Why You Need a Glendale, AZ Personal Injury Attorneys

Most personal injury accidents require you to file with insurance companies: car accidents, truck accidents, premise liability claims, etc. Unfortunately, the adjusters in most insurance companies will encourage you to take a fast settlement, which almost always falls short of the fair compensation that you would receive if you involve in the services of a personal injury lawyer. As Glendale, AZ personal injury lawyers, we see this scenario all too often. 

Adjusters from the insurance companies offer to write checks to the accident victims for their medical bills and maybe a little extra for pain and suffering and other damages. In exchange, the victims must sign a release of liability, which prevents them from seeking representation and pursuing further claims when the money runs out. 

These adjusters rely on the fact that most accident victims aren’t knowledgeable about how they should proceed after an accident. Most accident victims are under the mistaken impression that they can’t afford a personal injury lawyer. The fact of the matter is that in the state of Arizona, Glendale personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means that they are only paid when the case is successfully settled or litigated. At Wattel & York Accident Attorneys, all consultations are free. You don’t pay out of pocket for our services, so call today to discuss your case.

What You Should Do if You’re Involved in an Accident

Whether you’re in a car accident, a truck accident, a workplace accident, etc., there are steps you should take to protect your health and safety and to strengthen your injury case. 

Get to a position of safety

Your personal safety is paramount. For instance, if you’re in a car accident, make sure you remain in the vehicle until it’s safe to exit. 

Summon emergency services

Call 911 and report the accident. You may require the police, fire rescue, or an ambulance. Make sure you provide any information the dispatcher asks to the best of your ability. 

Check on injured parties

Never move someone who is injured unless it’s necessary. Do not attempt to provide assistance beyond your level of training. 

Take pictures or videos with your phone

Images or videos of the scene, property damage, injuries, and anything else you think may be important can be invaluable to your personal injury claim.

Gather the names and contact information of witnesses

Some witnesses will only remain on the scene until they know that police and fire rescue have arrived. Try to get their names and contact information before they leave. 

Accept medical help

If you believe you’re hurt or may have been hurt, accept medical attention on the scene. Allow the paramedics to transport you to the hospital if they think you require it. 

Follow up with your doctor

Make sure you get yourself checked out after the accident. Some injuries don’t manifest themselves for the first few days. You may begin feeling increased pain after the next day or so.

Glendale Personal Injury FAQs

Every personal injury is unique, which is why your case may be treated differently from another’s. You might be confused about the process. Here are some questions to help clarify your situation:

What if I Share Liability for my Injury?

You may have contributed to your personal injury in some way; however, if you aren’t completely at fault, you can still be compensated. According to the law of comparative negligence, if you contributed to 99% of your personal injury claim, then you can still get 1% of your damages compensated for. 

How Does a Personal Injury Claim Work?

Your personal injury claim is based on your damages and the evidence to support your claim. With your attorney’s help, your case is carefully reviewed to find the necessary evidence. Your attorney will calculate all of your personal injury damages and then seek compensation from the other party’s insurer using the evidence they gathered.

Why Choose Us for Your Glendale Personal Injury Claim?

We can provide the legal services you need to get the job done as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.

What Type Of Compensation Can I Claim?

You can seek compensation for any expense you had to pay because of another’s negligence. This includes any property damage, medical bills, and lost wages. In the case of wrongful death, you can claim additional damages such as funeral bills, loss of earning capacity, loss of consortium, lost benefits, and more. You can also get compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

What Should I Look For In A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Your personal injury attorney needs to be attentive to all aspects of your settlement claim. They have to stay on top of negotiations between you and the other party and make sure that all the necessary paperwork and information is submitted on time. Also, they must have experience in personal injury settlements so that you are guided on the correct path. 

How Do I Know If I am At Fault?

Before giving up on your personal injury claim or believing you might be at fault, speak to a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer first. Your attorney will review your claim and identify who is or isn’t at fault. They understand how to figure out if someone was negligent according to personal injury law.

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.”

Cathy M.

“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!!”
