So if you’ve been injured in an accident, how long do you have in order to bring your claim?
What that’s called in legal terms is your statute of limitations. In Arizona you have two years within which to bring your normal personal injury claim. Other states will be different and it varies from state to state but in Arizona you have two years. It’s like a lot of things in the legal world, it’s complicated. If a government entity is involved it’s much different, there’s a shorter time frame within which to bring your claim. Because of all the ins and outs when it comes to a statute of limitations, you should always talk to an attorney after being injured in an accident.
