What is Arizona’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims?
Have you been in an Arizona car accident or did you slip on a business property due to a hazard and sustain injuries? If so, you may have a case to pursue compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim. The sooner you get connected with an Arizona serious injury attorney the better.
At ELG, we solely focus on personal injury. We know Arizona personal injury law and are abreast of all changes to the law so that we can best serve victims of injury accidents in the state of Arizona. There is a time limit to your ability to recover costs associated with the damages you had to endure after your accident. In Arizona, the statute of limitations to file your claim is two years after the date of the accident where you were injured. This may seem like a long time, but the work that is required to build a strong personal injury claim, including gathering evidence, and documenting all the accident details as well as developing the picture of how the accident impacted your life is time-intensive.
In some accidents, there may be even less time to file your claim. It is possible to be involved in an accident where the circumstances that lead to it will only allow you 6 months to file your claim. This is why it is vitally important to your ability to obtain the compensation that you speak with a qualified Arizona automobile accident injury attorney. These legal professionals will be able to determine the strength of your case and how long you have to work on it before the filing deadline passes.
What Happens If You Don’t File Your Personal Injury Claim Within the Arizona Statute Of Limitations?
When you are injured and if your injuries have caused you to be unable to work, you will have to manage your recovery and treatment on your own dime. Those bills add up fast and with no income, the financial burden can be overwhelming. Juggling your medical care and trying to stay up to date with your bills and responsibilities is a lot on its own. Fighting a legal battle effectively is, even more, stressful for victims to take on alone.
There is not much flexibility when it comes to filing within the Arizona statute of limitations. If you wait too long before you file, you may miss the time within the statute of limitations and lose your ability to obtain any or all of the compensation you need to help you pay for your damages. Any number of complications can arise when you are filing a personal injury claim which may delay your ability to file or put your case in jeopardy. Waiting too long also puts you at higher risk for losing necessary documentation of medical appointments, receipts, and other details necessary to put together the strongest claim.
