When to File a Personal Injury Claim

Arizona personal injury law allows you to file a personal injury claim if you are injured or harmed due to the negligent, wrongful, or intentional conduct of another person or party. In other words, if you were injured because someone else acted carelessly or recklessly, you likely have grounds for a claim.

In most cases, you only have two years from the date of the accident or injury to file your lawsuit, so you should act quickly if you wish to seek compensation for your losses. If you fail to bring your claim within the two-year statute of limitations, you will almost certainly lose your right to sue the at-fault party.

Most personal injury claims are brought on the grounds of negligence. To bring a claim based on negligence, you will need to prove the following:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a responsibility to act reasonably and take certain measures to prevent you from being harmed
  • The defendant breached the duty of care, typically by acting either negligently, recklessly, carelessly, wrongfully, or intentionally
  • You were injured and suffered measurable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages/income, and/or pain and suffering
  • The defendant’s conduct (action or inaction) was the proximate or direct cause of your injuries and/or damages

Our Peoria personal injury attorneys understand the law and how it applies to your case. We can help determine if you have a claim during a free, no-obligation consultation. When you work with our team, we remain consistently available to you throughout the legal process, providing answers to your questions and handling the legal details of your case so that you can focus on healing and moving forward with your life.

Personal Injury FAQs

What are “damages?”

“Damages” is the legal term for the economic and non-economic losses a person suffers due to an accident, injury, loss, or death of a loved one. Economic losses are those that have a set dollar value, such as medical bills, whereas non-economic losses are those that are more intangible in nature, such as pain and suffering.

What damages are available in a personal injury claim?

The exact damages available to you will depend on the various details of your case. For example, if you were injured, did you need to be hospitalized? Did you undergo surgery? Were you prescribed any medications, and what did those medications cost? Were you unable to work because of your injuries? How long were you out of work? Did you become permanently disabled? All of these and other factors influence the value of your claim, as well as the damages you can recover. That being said, many people are able to recover compensation for the following damages: all current and future medical expenses related to the care and treatment of injuries, lost income/wages, future lost earnings, lost earning capacity due to temporary or permanent partial or total disability, pain and suffering, and other miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Arizona?

Arizona law allows you to file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of injury. This means that you typically only have two years from the date of the accident/injury to bring your claim. In some cases, the two-year statute of limitations may not begin until the date the injury was discovered or reasonably could have been discovered if it was not discovered right away.

Should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

There are many advantages to hiring a personal injury lawyer. An attorney not only understands the law, but they can also handle the various paperwork, documents, and evidence applicable in your case. Your attorney will be able to assist you in finding the best medical care and can work with the insurance company on your behalf. Perhaps most importantly, countless studies have shown that people who hire personal injury lawyers typically receive higher settlements than those who attempt to handle their cases on their own. This is likely because the insurance company knows that an attorney will not make the same mistakes that someone who does not understand the law could make during the personal injury process. Insurance companies also recognize that people who hire personal injury lawyers are serious about recovering maximum compensation and have the means to go to trial if necessary. This means that they are far more likely to offer a fair settlement than they would be if you chose to handle your claim yourself.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Personal injury lawyers offer their services on a contingency fee basis. This means that clients do not pay upfront or out-of-pocket expenses unless/until the attorney recovers a settlement or verdict on the client’s behalf. Attorney fees are paid via a percentage of the total recovery, and various laws affect how much these fees can be. Typically, personal injury attorney fees range between 30 and 40% of the total recovery, but various factors can affect the exact percentage. We are happy to discuss our fee arrangements with you during a free initial consultation; contact us today to learn more!
