Arizona’s Basic Personal Injury Laws
Personal injury lawsuits are among the leading types of civil claims filed in Arizona’s courts. Most cases involve road accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractices, product liability, dog attacks, and injuries to children.
As with other states, Arizona has multiple laws governing accidents and injuries and related personal injury claims. It is crucial for you to learn some of the basic laws you need to consider when filing a personal injury lawsuit.
- Statute of Limitations
The civil statute of limitations is the time limit or deadline for when an accident victim must file a personal injury lawsuit in the proper court. The time limit may vary depending on state laws and the nature of the personal injury lawsuit. According to Arizona’s statute of limitations, you typically have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, however there are exceptions to this deadline, including civil claims filed by minors which can have longer time limits. Claims against government entities or employees must be filed within 180 days from the date of the accident and a lawsuit filed within one year of the accident date. A government entity is usually a city, state, or county or any of their departments or employees. Our Tucson personal injury lawyer, Mr. Barry Bellovin, will assist you in filing your civil claim on time. Failure to follow these filing deadlines will result in the loss of your rights to sue or recover compensation for your injuries or damages.
- Other Negligence Laws
There are other negligence laws that may be specific to Arizona or your case. For instance, Arizona requires drivers in an accident that results in injury or death to notify either the local police department, highway patrol, or the county sheriff within the shortest time possible.
Other negligence laws applicable in Arizona include liability in wrongful death cases, product liability, and laws prohibiting the overserving of alcohol to drivers. Some of these laws might be specific to your case and they can impact your compensation or filing deadlines. We will help you understand the laws specific to Arizona or your case and their affect on your civil claim.
Compensation and Damages in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
While there are many instances where someone else’s acts of negligence might result in a compensable injury, not all personal injury cases are brought to trial in court. However, even for the ones that are settled out of court, there is still a need to negotiate for compensation based on the law, fault and complex medical issues. Whether your case settles out of court or goes to trial, we will help you recover fair compensation for your injuries.
Typically, the value of your compensation depends on several factors, including damages suffered and the severity of your injuries. Some of the common damages that you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit include past, current, and future medical expenses, surgical expenses, lost wages and lost earning capacity, property damage, and the cost of home modifications. You may also recover for emotional suffering, physical pain, loss of quality of life, scarring, and for permanent injuries or disabilities.
