Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences someone can endure. This can be made even more traumatic if the person's death was due to the fault of another person or company. The victim’s family is often left without any assistance, to pick up the pieces- dealing with the emotional and financial burden of their loss. In such situations, a wrongful death lawsuit can help with these overwhelming burdens. At Enara Law PLLC, a Scottsdale personal injury law firm, we fight for the rights of families and those who have been forced to deal with the loss of a loved one. We represent those that have lost someone close to them, due to the negligence of others in Phoenix and all across Arizona.
The death of a loved one is always a tragedy, but it will only qualify a family for a civil lawsuit if certain criteria are met. First, the death must meet the state’s definition of wrongful death. Arizona law, ARS 12-611 defines wrongful death as “death of a person [that] is caused by wrongful act, neglect or default…” You will only have grounds for a claim if someone else caused or substantially contributed to your family member’s death, such as a drunk driver or negligent doctor.
Second, you must be within the Arizona statute of limitations. You have two years from the day your loved one died to bring a wrongful death claim, in most cases. If you miss this deadline, you may be prevented from being able to bring a case.
A Phoenix wrongful death lawyer will understand how to handle your claim to maximize the odds of success. Call one of our Scottsdale wrongful death attorneys if your loved one lost his or her life in an auto accident, workplace accident, fall, animal attack, act of violence or another circumstance that was due to someone else’s fault. One of Enara’s Scottsdale wrongful death lawyers can review your case for signs of wrongdoing and help you bring a claim forward, if applicable.
