Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
State law allows only specific individuals to file wrongful death claims. This includes the spouse, surviving child, or surviving parent or guardian of the deceased. A personal representative of the deceased’s estate (often called the executor) can file the claim on behalf of the surviving spouse, child, or parent or on behalf of the estate if none of those people have survived the deceased.
Time Limit for Filing the Claim
Family members and estates in Arizona have a limited amount of time to file these claims in court. The wrongful death statute of limitations is two years from the date an injury occurs. Failing to file a lawsuit within this two-year time frame will likely mean the estate loses the ability to recover any compensation.
