Arizona Personal Injury Law: How Does it Affect Legal Funding?
Arizona’s statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits gives the injured party 2 years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit against those responsible. Any later and it is unlikely the Arizona court system will accept the case and there will be no right to compensation. However, if an injury is hidden, the time limit could begin from the date it was discovered as opposed to the date it was sustained. Therefore, injured parties should discuss the statute of limitations with a qualified attorney. Additionally, there is a different statute of limitations for victims wishing to make a claim against a city, county, or the state. In these cases, a formal claim must be filed within 180 days and a lawsuit filed within a year.
Article 2, Section 31 of Arizona’s constitution prohibits any damages caps in personal injury cases.
The justice system in Arizona operates under the pure comparative fault doctrine. Under this jurisdiction, the courts are able to reduce a plaintiff’s damages if they are partly at fault for their own injury. A judge or jury will assign a percentage of responsibility to all parties during a personal injury case, and each will have to pay an equal proportion of the overall compensation. If the plaintiff is found to be 10% at fault, 10% will be deducted from the damages paid.
Residents of Arizona don’t necessarily need to go through the courts to handle a traffic accident case. Instead, the injured party has the option to settle a claim with relevant insurance companies if they wish. However, dog owners in Arizona may have to go to court if their pet causes an injury, as specific statutes (Ariz. Rev. Stat. §11-1025, and Ariz. Rev. Stat. §11-1020) make the owner “strictly liable”. This is regardless of the animal’s past behavior.
