If you suffered injuries from a car accident in Arizona, you may wonder what your next steps should be. You likely have many questions about your rights and the potential for recovering compensation for your injuries. That's why it's essential for Arizona drivers to understand the state's limitations for personal injury and wrongful death claims.

Below, the team at Gerber Injury Law discusses these restrictions and how they apply to Arizona car accidents. We also provide tips on ensuring you don’t miss out on your chance to get justice after an accident.

Arizona’s Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations in Arizona for a tort action is generally two years from the date of the accident or injury. If your claim involves a state public entity such as a city, town, or school district, the statute of limitations is only one year, and you must also properly serve notice of your claim on the state public entity within 180 days from the date of the injury.

Also, if your claim involves a workers’ compensation claim or a claim that arises by statute (such as a dog bite claim), you may have only one year from the date of injury to take action to preserve your claim.
