Personal Injury Sustained From Accidents
Understanding the Laws Surrounding Personal Injury Accidents
It is useful to know which laws apply to cases involving personal injuries sustained from auto accidents as in many instances, they can be quite complex. Like all other states, Arizona has a law known as the statute of limitations which imposes a two-year deadline.
As you might expect, the statute of limitations affects any claim which may be filed in the aftermath of an accident and stipulates that an injury case being brought before a judge must have been filed within twenty-four months from the date of the accident.
The Role of Time in Making Your Personal Injury Claim
Failing to observe this law may mean that your injury case is dismissed entirely by the civil court system in which case you will not be permitted to seek compensation or damages. However, if you have sustained an injury that you don’t discover for some time after the accident, the statute of limitations may start from the date of discovery.
Where time is a critical factor affecting your case, you should speak with an injury lawyer qualified to discuss your situation and your options for legal recourse as soon as possible.
