"I hired the Bourassa Law Group to handle my PI claim due to a car crash in March of 2019. I was referred by a close friend to this practice. I had heard from many people I know personally how long it can take to come to a settlement in these cases. It was 2 years in my case and I have heard from others in similar situations it can take as long as 5 years or more. My case was handled professionally and as quickly as possible. I am very happy with the results achieved. All members of the Bourassa Law Group I had communication with were attentive to my needs and responded to me in a timely fashion."

Any questions I had along the way were answered and the staff assured I had a clear understanding of all answers.

Great service you won't find anywhere else with a highly trained, competent, polite, and professional staff."

“The Bourassa Law Group has recently helped me out a great deal. While driving to Pink Box donuts late on a Sunday night, we were struck by a drunk driver who had ran a red light. I recieved an injury to my shoulder as well as some extensive damage to my car. Mark helped me find a doctor to look at my shoulder, get me to a physical therapist to get me healthy again, and get my car fixed. If you are ever in need of a top notch attorney... "Better Call Bourassa" (that's their slogan).”

As a Physician who specializes in PI injury cases, I can say with 100% confidence and certainty that the Bourassa Law Group is top in the business. They are accessible and accommodating for our patients, bilingual which is huge for us, they are highly organized and don’t pass patients from case manager to case manager, they are quick to establish your case, and are there with you every step of the way. After my own accident last year, I had 10+ law firms in town that could amply take care of me.... so it speaks volumes when I chose Bourassa without hesitation. Thank you Mark, Stu, Cara and the whole team! 10 ⭐️’s!!!!!

-Michelle Wozniak

Mark and his team are absolutely amazing. They have assisted many issues for my friends and I throughout the years. Definitely the go to team.

-Crystina N.

Bourassa law group as far as I am concerned is a top notch law firm. Chris was the lawyer of record on my case, if I needed to speak to him he was ALWAYS available to talk me it was not often I needed to talk to him but when there was a need he'd talk to me very professional in my opinion. As far as his paralegal Melani Kim Ruskin is simply put the best there is. Melani kept me posted as to exactly what was happening on my case never telling me something she thought I wanted to hear. Melani and Chris are an excellent team of professionals. If I'm EVER in need of an attorney again I will without hesitation call on the Bourassa Law Group. If you ever has a need for an attorney you CAN NOT do better than getting these two on your side.

-Gregory W.

Bourassa Law Group took on my case after two car accidents. My first lawyers told me to find another representative for my cases because there was nothing they could do about them, this was an unfortunate moment but very grateful to have come across this firm because they went above and beyond for me. Not only for me but for my son as well who was in the vehicle with me during the second accident. They did everything they could to make sure they demanded what was right and that I was satisfied with my treatments and closing settlements. Thank you very much Bourassa Law Group, not only for listening to my concerns and symptoms but for being trusting and proving that you will fight for me and my boy. Amazing firm!

-Vanessa R.

I got into a car accident and Mark Bourassa's law firm was the only firm that took my case seriously. They took care of me from the second I walked into their office until I got my settlement check. I can't thank Mark and his team enough for the support the offered at that difficult time. Thank you!

-Chloe P.

I highly recommend the firm. Awesome experience they were tenacious, forthcoming with information, and diligent at getting my lawsuit case resolved If I need legal services again I now know where to go.

Important Pieces of Evidence You Need for a Personal Injury Claim

To succeed in your personal injury claim, you will need to gather evidence to prove the other party’s responsibility for your injuries and establish the kinds and amounts of damages that you have incurred as a result of your injuries. Our Scottsdale personal injury lawyers can help you secure the various pieces of evidence necessary for your particular personal injury claim, such as:

  1. 1. Accident Report

    Depending on the type of accident you’ve suffered, someone may have prepared a report of the accident. For example, if the police respond to the scene of an accident, they will file a report. The investigating officers will relay their findings and often their conclusions about how the accident occurred and who was at fault for the accident. Or, if you were injured on a business’s premises, the employees, managers, or the owner should prepare an accident or incident report as well.

    2. Physical Evidence

    Physical evidence can demonstrate that you suffered an injury as well as demonstrate the severity of your injuries. It is often vital to act quickly to preserve physical evidence, which is usually lost or destroyed after enough time has passed. Our attorneys will ensure that all parties involved in your case preserve all physical evidence so that it is not lost or disposed of.

    3. Pictures and Video

    Photographic and video evidence can be critical to demonstrating how an accident occurred and the injuries that you have suffered. As soon as possible after an accident, you should try to take photos or videos of things like the scene of the accident, property that was damaged in the accident, your injuries, and your progress and recovery from your injuries

  2. 4. Eyewitness statements

    Eyewitness statements can be compelling objective evidence to establish what happened in an accident. It is critical to get statements as soon as possible after your accident before people’s memories begin to fade.

    5. Medical Records

    Medical records are crucial to establishing what injuries you suffered in your accident and the severity of those injuries, including how those injuries may have affected your ability to work, participate in activities, or complete tasks of daily living. In addition, you will want to keep copies of bills and invoices from your medical treatment to establish the amount of compensation you should be entitled to.

    6. Proof of wages and earnings

    If your injuries keep you out of work, you are entitled to be compensated for your lost wages or income. You will need proof of the amount of income or wages you missed out on, which can usually be confirmed through documents like pay stubs or income statements.

  3. Compensation For Your Injury

    The amount of compensation that you might be entitled to will depend on the kinds of financial, emotional, and physical damages you and your family have incurred. Our Scottsdale personal injury attorneys can help you recover every kind of compensation you might be entitled to following a personal injury, including:

    • Medical Expenses, such as hospital bills, doctor’s visits, surgeries, prescription medication, physical or occupational therapy, mobility equipment, prosthetics, and home alterations and other equipment to accommodate physical impairments or disabilities
    • Lost wages, if you miss time from work while recovering from your injuries
    • Lost earning potential, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your old job and you suffer a reduction in your income as a result
    • Pain and suffering, or the emotional and physical distress that is caused by your injuries
    • Lost quality of life, which can result from things like disability, disfigurement, inability to participate in activities you enjoyed before your injuries, or inability to perform tasks of daily living
    • Property damage, including compensation to repair damaged property or the cash value of destroyed property
    • Loss of consortium or companionship, which provides compensation to a spouse or immediate family members for the loss of your society and services to your family.

    The Bourassa Law Group stands ready to help you and your family secure the financial recovery you need and deserve so that you can get your life back on track.

Frequently asked questions

The legal definition of a personal injury is when someone’s failure to use reasonable care in a particular situation results in another person’s physical, emotional, or psychological injury. Personal injury cases often rely on the elements of negligence to prove the responsible party’s actions were the cause of the other party’s injuries.

The length of a personal injury case depends on the type of case and various factors, such as the severity of the injury sustained and the duration of necessary treatment. A car accident case might take six months to resolve, while a wrongful death lawsuit could take two years. It all depends on the circumstances surrounding the case.

No. Whether you got hurt in a car accident or on someone else’s property, you should never speak with their liability insurance company about the claim. They try to save money whenever possible and could attempt to trick you into accepting a low settlement amount or intimidate you into dropping the case. Your Denver personal injury lawyer will handle all communication on your behalf.

It depends. A vast majority of personal injury cases settle out of court. When we file a claim with the insurance company, we’ll submit evidence that proves you deserve compensation for your injuries. Sometimes the insurer is willing to settle. Other times, they deny the claim or provide a settlement much lower than you deserve. Under those circumstances, we will file a lawsuit and take the case to court.

Mediation is a step during a lawsuit where both sides meet to try to reach an agreement. The mediator listens to the arguments on both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s sides and attempts to resolve the issue. If they can reach an agreement, they will settle out of court, and the case will get dismissed. If they can’t resolve the matter, the case will proceed to trial.
