The Car Accident Law Firm Serving Phoenix
Car Accident Info
Arizona’s highways and intersections are dangerous. With one careless driver’s actions, your life could change in an instant. When someone else is at fault, it’s natural to seek compensation to set things right—and you’re going to want the best legal help possible to achieve that goal.
Car accidents happen for dozens of reasons—turning without looking, failing to see other vehicles, seeing other vehicles but making incorrect assumptions about their intentions, illegal driving maneuvers, distracted driving, drunk driving...the list goes on and on.
Seatbelts and airbags aren’t always enough to keep you safe in an accident. With the average passenger vehicle weighing about 4,000 pounds, car accident victims often suffer from all manner of devastating injuries. Some of the most common are:
If another driver is responsible for your injuries, they should also be held responsible for the expenses associated with those injuries. But car accident cases can be complicated. In some cases, the other driver may refuse to pay—or even say that the crash was your fault.
That’s where we come in. Blackwell Ruiz will investigate your crash, build your case, and seek the compensation you deserve to make your life whole again. Let us carry some of your burden and make this difficult process as easy and simple as possible.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Legal Questions? Talk to a top attorney
Our lawyers have experience winning cases for all types of personal injury claims for clients across the state of Arizona, such as car accident cases as a Phoenix auto accident attorney. If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another driver, it’s time to make things right.
We serve clients throughout Arizona, including cases in Phoenix, Flagstaff, Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Paradise Valley, Chandler, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Peoria, and everywhere in between.
Your typical car accident lawyer in Phoenix charges based on contingency. What that means is that you won’t pay any fees throughout the legal process until we’ve won your case, after which we’re paid a percentage of your payout.
If your case is very simple and you’re not seeking a large payout, then it’s true that you might not need a lawyer. However, a majority of cases are not simple, and it’s a fact that victims who represent their own cases tend to receive smaller payouts than those who hire a lawyer.
Were you injured by a careless, reckless, distracted or drunk driver? You may have a case—however, it’s impossible to tell for sure until you’ve met and consulted with an experienced car accident attorney Phoenix or auto accident attorney Phoenix.
Absolutely not. Because we work based on contingency, you won’t have to worry about any legal fees at all until we’ve won your case. We believe you have enough to worry about without adding bills from Phoenix auto accident lawyers to the pile.
That all depends. Simple cases will take less time, but more complex cases (and cases involving larger sums of money) tend to take longer. It’s hard to estimate how long your case will take until you’ve met Phoenix car accident lawyers for a case evaluation.
Clients are often stressed about appearing in court, but the truth is that we’re able to resolve most of our cases outside of court. However, if we’re unable to reach a satisfactory settlement, know that our team will fight for every penny you deserve.
Your first thought should be your health—even if you feel fine, you should still receive a medical exam. That’s because some injuries can take days (or even weeks) to fully manifest. If you’re able to, also try to collect as much information from the scene as possible—witness testimony, photographs, contact information, etc.
You may have heard about a statute of limitations, which is basically a time limit for seeking compensation from your personal injury case. Because Arizona’s statute of limitation laws can vary based on your individual case, it’s important to start this process ASAP.
Estimating the worth of your case is hard to do until your case has progressed, and any auto accident lawyer in Phoenix who claims to know how much you could collect is likely trying to sign you up as a new client. The further we get into building your case, the more information we’ll have, and the easier it will be to estimate your payout.
Even if you don’t feel hurt right after your crash, you could still have a case with the right accident attorneys Phoenix. Soft tissue injuries don’t always appear right away, and you may not realize you’re seriously injured until well after your accident—sometimes weeks later!
