The Statute of Limitations on Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Arizona
The Arizona statute of limitations (§12-542) is generally two years on wrongful death lawsuits, but it may vary based on the unique circumstances of your case.
For instance, if your wrongful death claim includes a public entity, such as a school district, municipality, or the State of Arizona, you must file a “Notice of Claim” within 180 days, and a lawsuit must be initiated within one year after the cause of action.
That is why you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after the death of your loved one. Our wrongful death accident attorneys in Scottsdale, AZ, will let you know what to expect and when you need to take action. If necessary, we will file a quick lawsuit to keep the statute from expiring on you.

Wrongful Death Claims and Survival Actions in Arizona
According to Arizona’s wrongful death laws, there are two kinds of wrongful death cases: survival actions and wrongful death claims. A survival action is when the injured party dies but leaves behind relatives who can still sue for damages (such as medical bills).
A wrongful death claim is when the injured party dies before they can bring legal action against someone else who caused their injuries or death. This can be important because it means that if someone close to you dies as part of an accident or incident that caused their injuries or death, their family can still sue for damages on their behalf.
The average wrongful death claim can be anywhere from $100,000 to $2 million depending on the circumstances and severity of the case. The most important thing you can do if you’ve lost a loved one is to speak with an experienced Scottsdale wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible.
