Who can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Phoenix?

When we turn to Arizona law (A.R.S. Section 12-611), we can see that the following people may file wrongful death claims in Arizona civil court:

  • A surviving spouse of the deceased
  • The surviving children of the deceased
  • A surviving parent or guardian of the deceased
  • A personal representative of the deceased person’s estate
  • The personal representative of a deceased spouse, child, parent, or guardian

Time Limit to File a Phoenix Wrongful Death Claim

Family members who wish to file a wrongful death claim in Arizona must do so within two years from the date of the deceased’s death. If the family or the estate fails to file their claim within the time limits set forth by the Arizona wrongful death statute of limitations, they will likely lose the ability to recover any compensation they may be entitled to.
