The Statute of Limitations in Arizona
Like most other states, Arizona has a statute of limitations for personal injury and insurance bad faith cases. The statute of limitations is the time in which a claim must be brought in order to be heard by the courts. If a claim is not brought until after the expiration of the statute of limitations, the claim will be dismissed by the courts, and the person bringing the claim will not otherwise be able to sue for damages.
Arizona Has a Two Year Statute of Limitations
In Arizona, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims and insurance bad faith is two years from the date that the injury or action occurred. In some cases, such as a car accident case, the date that the injury occurred is obvious. In other instances, including insurance bad faith, the date that the actual wrongdoing occurred may not be obvious.
As a result,in order to ensure that rights are properly preserved, it is better to initiate a lawsuit well before the statute of limitations may expire.
