how long do i have to file a personal injury lawsuit in arizona?
Each state typically establishes legal time limits, called a statute of limitations, within which someone must file specific types of lawsuits, such as personal injury lawsuits. Generally, any lawsuits that are brought after this statute of limitations has expired will not be allowed. Most states typically have a statute of limitations for personal injury claims of two or three years.
Under Arizona law, Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S.) Section 12-542 requires injury victims to file any personal injury lawsuit against a private party within two years. This means that you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to seek any compensation you may be entitled to. This statute of limitations will generally apply regardless of whether the accident was caused by the other party’s negligence or if your injuries were instead intentionally caused by the other party, such as by assault and battery or some other intentional misconduct.
