Personal injury lawsuits in Arizona and throughout the United States take all kinds of shapes and sizes. An experienced Arizona personal injury attorney should be able to handle not just car accident cases, but handle all sorts of situations where the negligence of one person has caused an injury in ways no one could have imagined.
The reality is that if you do this job long enough – if you dedicate yourself to helping people who have been seriously injured or who have lost a loved one due to somebody else’s negligence, you come to realize that you can never be certain what to expect. You learn after years of helping people that almost any activity can be dangerous if people who are responsible are not careful in what they are doing, especially in auto accidents in Phoenix. In the end, we all rely on each other so much that our own health and lives are tied to the courtesy and responsibility of strangers on a daily basis.
If you’ve helped enough people make insurance claims in Arizona, you’ve also seen all sorts of unusual injuries. Sure, closed head injuries, brain injuries, rotator cuff tears, torn ligaments in knees, and all sorts of other injuries but unfortunately a variety that we see almost every day. However, sometimes you see a strange or even extremely unusual injury that was caused by an accident.
However, I cannot recall the last time I saw an injury claim quite like the one reported by renowned Utah personal injury lawyer, Kenneth Christensen. According to his reports, the world record holder for the world’s longest fingernails lost her fingernails when they were broken in a four-car pileup and she was ejected from her window. The 67-year-old world record holder, Lee Redmond, apparently had been growing her fingernails since 1979.
Therefore, those nails were 30 years in the making. Now, I think I have seen just about every kind of injury and helped just about every kind of person [strike that]. Now, after spending our careers fighting for people who have suffered all kinds of injuries, we thought we had seen it all. Apparently, there is always something new and different out there, which is why it is important to seek the representation of a skilled Arizona personal injury lawyer.
