What Effect Will the Coronavirus Have on the Statute of Limitations in Arizona?

What Effect Will the Coronavirus Have on the Statute of Limitations in Arizona?

There are few matters more pressing than a serious injury. If you are someone who was wrongly injured in an accident, there is a very good chance that you will require financial compensation won in a personal injury claim to help you recover. That being said, you will have to file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Arizona is, generally, two years, you will generally have two years from the date of your accident to sue.

Under many circumstances, the wrongly injured will wait before suing to see if their injuries heal naturally, that way they do not have to go through the legal process. However, if you have been injured in an auto accident, waited to see if you get better, and are now looking to pursue a personal injury claim closer to the statute of limitations, you will have to act now. Unfortunately, with the coronavirus so rapidly closing down courts and other establishments across the country, you may not know the path forward. Though we are still taking claims and regularly speaking with clients, there is no telling how this disease may impact the statute of limitations in the long run. We hope that the state extends the statute of limitations for these claims, however, there is no guarantee. As soon as we learn more we will bring this information to you. Speak with our experienced Arizona personal injury attorneys if you have any other questions.
