Why Hire a Wrongful Death Attorney?
Holding someone accountable for the wrongful death of your loved one can bring your family justice, closure, and greater financial security when you need it the most. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not on your side during the wrongful death claims process. You may face bad-faith insurance tactics, such as an inadequate settlement offer or a wrongfully rejected claim.
An attorney can help you go up against an insurance claims adjuster in pursuit of fair financial compensation for wrongful death. An attorney can also hire qualified experts to testify on your behalf, collect evidence of fault for your loved one’s death and explain your rights along the way. Hiring a wrongful death attorney means having a trusted advocate represent your family’s rights and interests while you grieve and heal.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Wrongful Death in Arizona
One of the many ways in which we aim to be there for mourning families in Surprise is by answering the many questions that arise after the unexpected death of a loved one. If you suspect that your family has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Arizona, go over these FAQs for answers to common questions that we receive at our law firm.
- What is the definition of wrongful death?
In Arizona, wrongful death is when one person dies due to the default (omission), neglect or wrongful act of another person or entity. This includes preventable accidents, such as car crashes, as well as medical malpractice and intentional torts.
- Do I have a case?
You may have grounds for a wrongful death case if one or more parties owed your loved one a responsibility to exercise care, violated this responsibility and caused your loved one’s fatal injury. Unlike in a criminal case, you do not need proof of intent to harm or kill to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
- Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit?
In Arizona, the law states that only a deceased person’s surviving spouse, child, parent, guardian or personal representative of the estate has the legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
- What is the statute of limitations on a wrongful death claim?
A statute of limitations is a legal deadline to file a civil claim. In Arizona, the statute of limitations on a wrongful death case is two years from the date of the victim’s death, with some exceptions. It is important not to miss this deadline, or you could lose the right to recover compensation.
- What damages are available?
Damages is the legal term for financial compensation. The damages that your family receives in a wrongful death case may include funeral and burial costs, medical bills, property repairs, your family’s mental anguish, the decedent’s pain and suffering, and the loss of the loved one’s care, guidance and companionship.
