How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Arizona?

How long you have to file a personal injury claim is dictated by a law called the statute of limitations. This law limits how long an injury victim has to file a claim. According to the Arizona Revised Statutes section 12-542, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Arizona is two years. More specifically, this means you have two years from the date your injury happened to file, or you will lose your right to file and your right to recover. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit. For example, if:
  • The injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident the two-year time period will begin once the claimant turns 18
  • If the alleged negligent party leave the state of Arizona before the lawsuit can be filed, the period the party is out of state will most likely not count towards the two year time period
  • The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. Cullan & Cullan offer free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!
