Hi, I’m Bob Monroe, one of the founding members and owners of Fleming & Monroe in Mesa. My practice areas include personal injury, estate planning and commercial litigation, including construction and real estate disputes.

Generally speaking, under Arizona law you have two years from the date you’re 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.

Ultimately, the facts of your case will determine the exact amount of time you have to file before the statute of limitations bars your claim.
