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 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,
a Phoenix personal injury 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, particularly
in cases involving car accidents and negotiating with insurance companies
as well as the other drivers involved. 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, such as in auto collisions where you might need to
take into account the cost of restoring the car as well. 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.
