Pursuing Damages in a Wrongful Death Case

In addition to providing the opportunity for financial compensation, wrongful death claims can also provide families with a sense of justice by holding wrongdoers accountable for the loss of their loved one. Our Phoenix car accident lawyers understand the emotional and financial stakes involved in these cases, and we fight relentlessly for our clients.

Surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional injuries

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Arizona?

We represent the surviving family members of people killed in fatal auto accidents by filing wrongful death lawsuits against those responsible. Under Arizona law, only certain family members who have lost loved ones have the right to recover compensation for their damages.

This includes the victim's surviving:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

In Arizona, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years. This means that you only have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. If you fail to do, you will lose the right to assert a wrongful death claim – and, in turn, forfeit your right to financial compensation. Timely action is crucial.
