Truck Accident Statute of Limitations | Deadline to File a Claim
In order to be eligible for compensation, you must bring your claim within two years from the date of your accident. If miss the two-year deadline, you will be barred from compensation. If you go to an attorney a day before the two-year deadline runs out, they will not be able to help you. The sooner you get to an attorney, the better. It is important that you give your attorney as much time as possible to build you a strong case.
Truck Accident Statute of Limitations | How Compensation Works
Arizona allows for a lot of leeway in regards to getting compensation. We follow the rules of pure comparative negligence. What that means is if you have been deemed partially at fault for the accident, you can still receive compensation. Even if you are 99% at fault, you can still get compensation. The only catch is that your compensation will be reduced by the percent of fault you are deemed. For instance, if you are deemed 10% at fault and you are awarded $100,000 for your damages, you will be allowed to collect $90,000 of it to account for your partial fault. The only way to be completely barred from compensation is if you are 100% at fault for the accident. We will work hard to make sure that you are not blamed for the accident and that you receive full compensation for your damages.
