Car Accidents and Wrongful Death

Dedicated Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer With Over 45 years of Experience Fighting for Successful Outcomes During Difficult Times

Losing a loved one at any time is difficult. It can be especially devastating when a loved one dies because of someone else's wrongdoing or negligence. At the Arizona law office of James E. Vieh, P.L.C., we protect the rights of people throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area, helping them get just financial compensation for their wrongful death claim.

We provide reliable and experienced guidance after an accident. We understand that you are going through an emotional, even overwhelming, period in your life. Our job is to take care of the legal matters, so that you can concentrate on yourself and your family. If a family member has died in a car accident, surgery or other unusual circumstance, contact us for a free initial consultation. You will never pay us anything unless we recover for you.

Car Accidents

When someone is involved in a car accident that leads to serious injuries or wrongful death, insurance companies will often try to avoid paying the full value of the claim, and may try to deny it entirely. If you have been seriously injured, or if a loved one has died, in a car accident, we will fight to ensure that the responsible party pays for your losses.

At James E. Vieh, P.L.C., we aggressively pursue your interests by:

  • Hiring a private investigator to gather evidence before it disappears
  • Gathering and reviewing all accident and medical reports
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Negotiating with insurance carriers to protect your rights
  • If a reasonable settlement is not offered, we will litigate your case

Time is of the essence in car accident cases. Waiting too long can jeopardize your claim. Call (480) 707-5000 or contact us to schedule a free consultation.

Wrongful Death

Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one, but attorney Jim Vieh can help you get compensation for medical bills, lost wages, funeral expenses and loss of companionship. As a former insurance defense attorney, Jim Vieh is familiar with how the "other side" puts together its case, and all the methods they will use to minimize your claims.

Families are often left with little income when one parent dies. In Arizona, an immediate family member (parent, child or spouse) can bring a claim against the person responsible for a wrongful death. However, the process is complicated and insurance companies are in the business of paying the least they can to get rid of your case.

Contact us to schedule a free consultation and get the benefit of experience on your side. You will not pay us anything unless we recover for you.

Our office is located in downtown Scottsdale, across the street from Fashion Square. We are available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 5:30, with other times by appointment. Home and hospital visits are also available by appointment. For personal injury cases, there is no fee unless we recover for you.

Attorney Vieh is fluent in Spanish and German. Se habla Español.

"I have known and been a client of Jim’s for many years. Jim has represented several of my businesses, my personal work, and many miscellaneous issues. He has proven his worth over and over and gotten better at his profession each year I have dealt with him. Dealing with Jim enables a client to speak directly with him. He is one of the best, if not the best attorney in Arizona, not a junior attorney in a large firm." Bob Hope
