So you got in a car accident that wasn't your fault? Sorry to hear this.

Just over 110,000 accidents occurred in Arizona in 2019. Most were rear-end crashes. 

If you weren't at fault in an accident, you may be wondering if you should contact a personal injury lawyer, like the many we have in our network of lawyers, to see if you can sue a person, or their insurance company. 

Every state has their own rules about how and if you can file a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident. Here's what you need to know about filing personal injury lawsuits in Arizona.  

1. You must file the personal injury lawsuit within two years of the accident. 

2. You may have a little longer to file the lawsuit if your injuries didn't appear immediately.

3. You have a few ways to collect money for the damage and pain you suffer:
  •  You can can file an insurance claim with your own auto insurance company.
  • You can file a claim with the other driver's insurance company.
  • You can file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver or the insurance company. 
4. A personal injury lawyer can really help you when it comes to getting compensated after a car accident. Lawyers can make a case about lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and damage to your car.
