How can a Wattel and York motorcycle accident attorney help you with your claim?

If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, your Wattel and York motorcycle accident attorney in Yuma, AZ can help you through every step of the legal process. Here are some actions we will take:

Gather Evidence

A strong case is based on having compelling and comprehensive evidence. That is why your motorcycle accident lawyer will start by gathering all evidence, including the police report, footage from traffic cameras when available, eyewitness testimonies, and more. We will assemble everything to prove the negligence of the other driver and get you the compensation you deserve.

Establish Your Losses

It is important to be clear on how your injuries and their accompanying expenses are related to the accident. We are prepared to work hand-in-hand with your healthcare providers to gather all medical records and accurately assess all medical expenses accurately. If your medical treatment is not complete, we will estimate the required compensation for either permanent conditions or future medical treatments that are still pending.

We will also establish your financial losses, the wages you have lost by being unable to work, as well as any future wages you may not earn if you become disabled or have to settle for a different career path. The pain and suffering you are experiencing because of the accident will also be added to the final amount of your claim.

Negotiate With the Insurance Companies

Even though there might be insurance policies for you to use, either yours or that of the other driver, we have the experience to know that insurance companies seldom have your best interests in mind. You might be surprised by the low offer from the driver’s insurance company, an offer that will likely not be sufficient to cover your expenses. This is where our expertise can make a substantial difference. Having an attorney by your side sends a clear message to the insurance company that you are serious about your recovery and want a fair offer from them. We will negotiate to make sure you get a fair deal. If the insurer refuses to make a reasonable offer, we will help you file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover the compensation you are entitled to.

Is it worth getting a lawyer for a minor car accident?

If you consider whether it is worth hiring a lawyer for a minor accident, keep in mind that your attorney will do more than simply protect your rights. We will fight tirelessly to build the strongest case against the negligent driver who caused your injuries so that we can achieve the best outcome for you with the best settlement.

It is also important to consider that even in cases where you are involved in a minor accident, you may discover that the other party has hired legal help to represent them. You never want to jeopardize your chances of obtaining a fair settlement by filing a claim on your own.

Your motorcycle accident attorney from Wattel and York in Yuma, AZ will protect you in and out of the courtroom. Set up an initial appointment, and let us start working for you right away.

“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.”

“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!!”
