If you’re hesitant to speak with a knowledgeable Scottsdale, AZ wrongful death lawyer at Saavedra Law Firm, PLC about your case because you’re unsure of whether you have grounds upon which to file legal action, it’s time to pick up the phone. You don’t have to know your options for sure to ask questions about your rights under the law.

By seeking justice via a wrongful death lawsuit, you may benefit from closure and/or a greater hope that others won’t suffer the same fate as your loved one. If not, you’ll at least be afforded the greatest possible opportunity to relieve yourself of the burden of all financial losses related to your loved one’s death.
One of the primary reasons why it’s important to connect with a knowledgeable Scottsdale wrongful death lawyer as soon as you can after your loved one’s death is that you may have very little time during which you’re permitted to take legal action.
If you’re “only” naming private individuals and/or private entities as defendants in your lawsuit, you’ll have two years from the date upon which your loved one died to file a lawsuit. You’ll still want to speak with us soon as we need to begin gathering evidence and protecting your rights. However, you have some time.
But, if you are naming any public entities as defendants in your lawsuit, we’ll need to file a notice of claim on your behalf within 180 days of the date upon which your loved one sustained injuries, which is not necessarily the same date upon which they died. If this period of time has already passed, connect with the Saavedra Law Firm, PLC team today to see if an exception applies in your case.
If you are a surviving spouse, child, parent, or guardian of your deceased loved one, you are empowered to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Arizona. If you aren’t, know that the executor of your loved one’s estate may file a wrongful death lawsuit and will distribute any damage awards to qualifying surviving loved ones.
As Arizona doesn’t cap economic or non-economic damages in wrongful death cases, you can potentially recover all of your financial losses related to your loved one’s death. For example, you may be awarded compensation for pain and suffering, burial costs, loss of income, and a host of other financial burdens stemming from your situation.
Our Scottsdale wrongful death lawyer team is here to take the weight of your legal situation off your shoulders. We’ll aggressively advocate on behalf of your family and the memory of your lost loved one so that you can grieve in greater peace.
