You suffered losses due to someone else’s conduct. You are entitled to recover not only those losses but also other categories of damages. How an attorney develops and proves your damages directly impacts the type and number of damages you recover through settlement or jury verdict.
Gill Law Firm has deep experience in mediation, complex negotiations and jury damages presentations. We have requested multi-million-dollar damages awards at trials. Juries responded, awarding our clients million-dollar verdicts based on our damages presentations. These presentations require diligent and sophisticated consideration of our clients, their losses, and the losses they likely will suffer in the future. We appreciate a client can never come back to a jury years later and request more money. The time is now.
Personal injury damages are categorized in two ways:
–Special damages are quantifiable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, lost future income, future medical care and property damage. Proving special damages requires a comprehensive evaluation of how an injury has impacted a client in the past, currently and in the future.
–General damages are less quantifiable. It is the trial attorney’s duty to compellingly quantify these damages to insurance adjustors, mediators and jurors. These damages include categories difficult to quantify artfully, such as pain and suffering, loss of the enjoyment of life (Hedonic) and loss of consortium (loss of all or a part of relationships).
–Punitive Damages are damages based on the defendant’s actions. In some cases, exemplary or punitive damages can be developed to motivate a jury to punish the defendants and prevent similar injuries or death to others.
We handle personal injury cases
Personal injury cases can take many forms, including medical malpractice suits, because they involve harm caused by healthcare providers. Conservative legislative and judicial law make malpractice cases complex, highly expensive, and risky. Mr. Gill started his career defending healthcare providers to gain the experience and skill to litigate and try cases against licensed healthcare providers. He has represented plaintiffs in cases against healthcare providers for over twenty years.
Personal injury or wrongful death can be caused by premises liability, vehicle collisions, Adult Protective Services Act (“APSA”), sexual assault, slips and falls and other mechanisms.
Our firm handles all these cases with high skill, care, and compassion.
How we can help prove damages
We have worked with hundreds of experts across many fields, including medical specialties, forensic accounting and future cost of care. We pride our selves on capturing all aspects of a client’s losses because, again, a client cannot come back for additional compensation years down the road.
Pursuing damages can be a long, painful process. However, the investment of time and resources is well worth it because of the impact of the injuries and the lifelong toll it will take on your family. Additionally, because our firm offers contingency fee representation, you won’t pay anything unless and until we recover compensation for you.
Recovering all damages you suffered, are suffering or will suffer requires expert attorneys with experience in the trenches fighting for every dollar against defense attorneys highly skilled at convincing juries you are not entitled to anything.

Adult Protective Services Act (APSA)
The Arizona Adult Protective Services Act is a body of law addressing the abuse and neglect of vulnerable adults. We have effectively developed evidence of violation of APSA in various contexts, permitting us to recover types of damages not otherwise permissible in personal injury and wrongful death. One of the unique aspects of APSA is the recovery of pain and suffering prior to a loved one’s death. APSA is complex; effectively developing and obtaining these unique damages requires in-depth experience. Gill Law Firm has experience successfully litigating APSA cases. APSA also offers a unique opportunity for punitive or exemplary damages when developed effectively.
Hold healthcare providers accountable for their actions and provide compensation for the resulting damages caused by substandard treatment.
What you should know about medical negligence claims in Arizona:
Medical professionals are required to carry medical malpractice liability insurance: most retail a minimum of $1 million and are often covered by additional insurance policies.
In our state and country today, medical malpractice cases are very expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to live with and prove. There is a longstanding bias in favor of physicians and health care providers. It is your right to hold negligent doctors and health practitioners accountable.
Medical malpractice can consist of any type of negative outcome from any form of treatment. Often, the cause of contributing factors are vague, misunderstood, or even missed completely by a patient or attorney who is not well-versed in medical malpractice.

Fatalities caused, or possibly caused by the conduct of others are an incredibly difficult tragedy for surviving family members. Surviving family members can pursue wrongful death claims to seek compensation for financial losses, emotional suffering, and the impact of their loved one’s untimely passing.
Wrongful death in Arizona
Surviving spouses, children, and parents can bring a lawsuit. A claim may even be brought on behalf of the estate if there are no living heirs. Legal and strategic reasons exist to bring a wrongful death claim under either of these statutory claims.
Survivors with a legal claim are entitled to the loss of love, companionship, and the relationship with the loved one who did not survive. Any person or entity that has negligently caused or contributed to the cause of death can be sued and held responsible.
Premature death is difficult
We understand that premature, unexpected deaths hit families hard. When a death is caused by wrongful actions, such as negligence, survivors or the estate can choose to bring a lawsuit.

Dedicated to the seriously injured
We represent people who have been injured in all kinds of car accidents.

The first thing you will think about is your safety, your family, and your livelihood. Taking swift action to get medical treatment and an accurate diagnosis helps you receive the treatment and compensation you deserve.
Liability in car accident cases in Arizona
Every driver who gets behind the wheel has a basic legal duty to operate that vehicle with reasonable care. When a driver causes a collision due to negligence, meaning the collision would not have occurred had the driver been more careful in some way, they can be found at fault and be held responsible for the accident.

Premises Liability (Commercial/Residential)
In both commercial and residential dangerous property injuries, negligent security, shootings, dog bites, and other potentially preventable incidents, the owner of the property has a duty to maintain safe conditions. If you suffered an accident on someone else’s property, they may be held liable if negligence in upkeep leads to harm, or accidents for visitors or tenants.
Understanding Premises Liability
“Premises liability” is a fancy legal term for the concept that property owners have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe. When they don’t, and someone gets hurt as a result, they should have to pay for those injuries.
As a type of personal injury claim, premises liability cases can involve complicated liability and causation issues.
Holding Property Owners Accountable For Dangerous Conditions
You deserve justice and accountability for the harm you have suffered as a result of dangerous property conditions. Our attorneys handle all kinds of premises liability claims, such as those involving:
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Fatal accidents
Whether the harm occurred on public or private property, commercial or residential, you may have a strong claim for compensation. We can review your case and advise you on your options.

The importance of proper safety protocols and regulations at construction sights cannot be overstated. Falls from heights, machinery accidents or exposure to hazardous materials are all risks at construction sights.
Understanding Construction accident claims
Many attorneys specialize in dealing with construction companies and their insurance providers, as cases are often complex and time-consuming.
The attorney’s job is to prove the business was negligent or intentionally at fault, which directly caused the injury or accident. The lawsuit is usually a personal injury case if the injured person is not an employee. The case usually defaults to workers’ compensation laws if the injured is an employee.
Laws mandate that employers retain workers comp insurance, ensuring injured employees receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that result from a workplace injury.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates workplace safety measures to help safeguard construction sites, making them as safe as possible.
Even on the safest of construction sites, accidents can occur. Because of that, construction companies often have insurance or financial reserves specifically assigned to provide compensation to those injured on a construction site.
