What kinds of laws are there regarding those who are eligible to file the claim?
You may be wondering if you are eligible to file the claim or if someone else will need to. Arizona allows family members to file a wrongful claim. This means if you are a spouse, child, parent, sibling, a beneficiary, or another close relative you can bring the claim forward.
My loved one did not pass away recently. What are the statutes of limitations on filing the claim?
It is always good to keep time in mind when you want to file any kind of legal claim. Concerning wrongful death claims, you will have two years from when the deceased passed away to file the claim.
No amount of compensation can ease the grief, but what am I able to recover?
Our Scottsdale, AZ wrongful death lawyer knows that no amount of compensation can help you through the grieving process. We understand this. However, we do encourage you to pursue damages so that you will be able to help with any costs you may have incurred while your loved one was alive. Some of the damages you can recover are:
- Medical bills
- Loss of current and future wages
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of companionship
- Mental anguish
- Punitive damages
These are just a few of the types of damages you can recover after your loved one has died from personal injuries.
Do I need an attorney?
