I was severely injured in a serious car accident two years ago, but my life has been so chaotic that I have been unable to think about hiring a lawyer until now. Can I still file a claim in Arizona?
In Arizona, a person injured in a motor vehicle accident generally has two (2) years from the date of the accident to present and settle a claim with the at-fault driver or their insurance company. If not possible to come to an agreement to settle, then the injured person must file the lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident to continue on with the claim.
There are a few nuances, but generally, this is the law in the state of Arizona. If your accident occurred almost 2 years ago and you’re getting close to the deadline, you should not hesitate any further and you should contact an experienced personal injury trial attorney as soon as possible. Being close to the two years, it is likely that a lawsuit will need to be filed very soon to protect your claim, so look for an attorney who actually filed lawsuits for his clients.
Look for an attorney who is a Certified Specialist in Personal Injury and Wrongful Death. These are the attorneys who are most experienced in filing lawsuits and getting their clients the best possible recoveries.
If by chance you have recently passed the two-year deadline, there is still a possibility you can file and maintain your claim. Again, this is a conversation you need to have with your experienced Phoenix personal injury trial lawyer.
