Your Submissions Regarding Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases

You can trust that we will use all of the resources available to us to best represent your interests during this troubling time.  Please read the commonly asked questions and answers below and contact us if you have any further questions.

  • What are the Statutes of Limitations in Arizona?  The statute of limitations ("SOL") is the given timeline that you have following an injury to file a lawsuit and preserve your right to sue a party in court. In Arizona, general personal injury and negligence claims have a SOL of two years.  However, the statute to file does not begin to run until the injury or illness has been discovered or would have reasonably been discovered by the injured plaintiff.
  • Who can file a lawsuit or a claim?  The injured party may file a lawsuit, or his or her family members may file a lawsuit in the case of a wrongful death claim.  (This means parents, spouses, children of the deceased.)
  • How do I know if I should file a lawsuit or a claim?  Many people debate whether or not to file a claim or a lawsuit after an accident. Other injured victims wonder whom can be held responsible for the injuries they have sustained. The general tort principle of personal injury law in Arizona is that the incident must have originated from the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another person.  You may also have a cause of action under strict liability where liability is imposed as a matter of law, as in dog bite cases.
  • Who can be held responsible for my injuries?  The parties who caused your injuries may be held responsible for the accident. By investigating your particular accident, a Tucson personal injury lawyer can determine what party or company you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against.
  • What is the value of my car accident case?  Many injured victims wonder what their case is worth. No two accident cases are exactly the same because the injuries and liability differ, and as such it may be difficult to determine the exact value of your case. Nevertheless, a lawyer experienced with these cases can work to provide fair compensation for your injuries.
  • What types of claims can I make under Arizona personal injury law?  Any injury suffered after an accident provides a cause of action under Arizona tort law. This includes any injuries caused by car accidents, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, defective products, toxic exposure and poisoning, and medical malpractice.
