Generally, the statute of limitations is 2 years for an injury claim in Arizona.
But be careful. This is by no means absolute, and if you are wrong, your case is lost forever.
If a claim involving a governmental employee or entity: 180 days, then one year from date of accident.
Dog bite: One year for a strict liability claim.
For a cause of action created by statute: One year.
Contract action: Three to six years, depending on type of case.
A child injured? Possibly until age 18, then apply one of the above.
Which applies to your case? It is not always easy to tell. In fact, even attorneys sometimes have difficulty computing the right amount of time. Statutes of limitations should not be a guessing game.
If you don’t know, like playing with fire. Take the guesswork out of it.
