Wrongful death FAQ
What is a wrongful death claim?
In Arizona, wrongful death is defined as a death that is caused “by wrongful act, neglect or default.” It can happen as a result of a car accident, truck collision, motorcycle collision, a premises liability accident, or medical malpractice. A personal injury claim can be filed on behalf of someone who died as a result of negligence.
Who can file a wrongful death claim?
In Arizona, a lawsuit can be filed by a surviving spouse, child, parent or guardian, or personal representative.
What kind of damages can be recovered in a wrongful death suit?
Family members can generally seek compensation for damages. These may include economic damages such as funeral and burial expenses, a loved one’s final medical expenses, loss of financial support, and the value of household services a loved one would have provided (such as childcare and yardwork). There may also be non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
How long to I have to file a wrongful death lawsuit?
The statute of limitations in Arizona for taking legal action after a wrongful death is two years from the date of death. While that seems like there is plenty of time, it’s best to get legal advice as soon as possible. It can take a long time to build a strong case that forces the insurance company to take your claim seriously. And strong cases can be built before evidence is lost and while the memories of witnesses are still fresh.
