What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury in Arizona?
A statute of limitations is essentially a law that governs the timeline
in which a claim can be filed. These laws exist to make sure that evidence
is relatively fresh and relevant at the time of the filing and to reduce
the threat of a lawsuit long after an incident has taken place.
In Arizona, most personal injury claims must be made within a two years
from the date that the injury occurred.
There is an exception to this statute called the “rule of discovery”.
This rule provides legal recourse for someone who did not find out they
were injured until potentially long after the incident that caused the
injury actually occurred. If it can be proven that the victim was unaware
of the injury, the statute of limitations is reset to the date on which
the victim became aware of the injury or should have discovered that they
Do I Need a Lawyer to Make a Claim?
Technically, it is up to you whether you choose to hire a lawyer. However,
an attorney can help you understand your rights and provide counsel, investigation,
and representation should the case be taken to court. When you are going
up against big companies, you typically face teams of lawyers whose number
one goal is to minimize their losses. If you have been injured, you need
to make sure that you have someone on your side who can aggressively assert
your claim to maximum compensation.
How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take?
There is no set answer for how long a personal injury case may take. Although
you may receive a settlement offer within a few weeks or months of an
accident, these are typically lowball offers meant to dissuade victims
from pursuing a claim any further. Many claims last months or even years
before reaching a reasonable conclusion.
The length of your personal injury case will depend on the following, and more:
- The complexity of your case
- The number of parties involved
- The size of the liable party
- The extent of your injuries
- The costs accrued due to your injuries
- Whether your case goes to trial
How Much is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
The worth of a personal injury claim will vary according to the individual
and the situation. Although there are no set amounts for different types
of injuries, an attorney can help you evaluate your damages and calculate
a reasonable amount of compensation.
The following are just some of the factors that are taken into account:
- The degree of physical injury
- The degree of mental injury
- The cost of medical care, medication, etc…
- The damage done to any property
- The cost of missing work
In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in an attempt to dissuade
the liable party from making a similar mistake ever again.
