How Long Do I have to File a Lawsuit for My Personal Injuries?

If you’re wondering how long you have to file a lawsuit for personal injuries you sustained, here’s what you should know.

Generally speaking, under the law in Arizona, you have two years from the date you are injured to file a claim. This timeframe is known as the “statute of limitations.”

If you fail to file your claim before the two-year deadline, you may no longer have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries.

Are There Any Exceptions?

There are some exceptions to this rule, which can make the deadline shorter or longer. But the facts of your case will determine the exact amount of time you have to file before your claim is barred by the statute of limitations.
