The loss of a family member is devastating. What's more, it is even more unsettling knowing that the tragedy could have been prevented but for another person's wrongdoing. Still, taking legal action against the wrongdoer may seem like an additional burden and the last thing you want to take on. Nevertheless, it is important to speak to an experienced attorney to ensure your rights are protected. Arizona law provides that a deceased's surviving spouse, children, parents, or guardian may lawfully pursue a wrongful death claim within two years of the death. Failing to take action within the two year statute of limitations can result in the loss of your right to assert a wrongful death claim meaning not receiving compensation for past, current, and/or future expenses.
