Scottsdale Wrongful Death
When there are questions about exactly how and why a loved one has died, it is difficult to know whom you can trust. It is so important to choose a legal team who can help you pursue a claim against any person or entity that might have played a part in that death. It is critical to seek that help as soon as possible. You can trust the Scottsdale wrongful death attorneys at Breyer Law Offices. You will receive personalized, professional and knowledgeable services both during the investigation of the circumstances and facts related to your case and throughout the process of fighting for your rights and recovering what is legally owed to you in terms of a settlement or verdict. Your claim may involve filing a suit against a party who was at fault or negligent, resulting in a wrongful death. The death might have been due to an accident or even an act of criminal violence.
In Scottsdale as well as the rest of the state of Arizona, there are specific laws regulating wrongful death claims. They are outlined in Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) §§12-611, 12-612 and 12-613. If you know or suspect that the death of your loved one was due in part or in full to the negligence of another, you may be able to receive compensation. Although a monetary award will not bring back a life, it can help you cope with related costs, both financial and emotional. It can make up for the lost income you may be experiencing. In other words, money can help put your life back in order and give you a degree of peace in knowing that financial worry is not something with which you will have to deal.
The statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim in Arizona is two years. The law also outlines the parties eligible to make a claim against an individual, private or public company or even the government in a wrongful death case. These are the following:
- Surviving spouse
- Parent or guardian
- Personal representative making the claim on behalf of the estate
