Statutes Of Limitations
Statute Of Limitations Lawyers
In the state of Arizona, victims of catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death are given two years from the date of the injury for their statute of limitations. If your injury was work-related, your statute of limitations is only one year. If the allegedly negligent party is a municipality or quasi-municipality, such as a city, county, school district, government department such as the Arizona Department of Transportation, or a utility company such as Salt River Project (SRP), you must contact an attorney immediately because your statute of limitations on filing your notice of claims is only 180 days and is only one year to file your lawsuit. Therefore, since every case is time-sensitive when it comes to the statute of limitations, we insist that you contact us as soon as possible.
Time Frame Is Crucial
In addition to the statute of limitations, it is always beneficial to contact us as soon as possible in order to ensure that the evidence is preserved, our legal team can inspect the scene at the earliest and that witnesses are contacted about the accident.
Thus, not only is there a possible deadline but also the evidence surrounding the accident is more likely accessible and preserved if we are contacted soon after the accident. Also, potential witnesses are more likely to have the event fresh in their minds if they are contacted shortly after the accident. Accordingly, it is imperative to contact one of our attorneys before vital information and evidence disappears and is spoiled as well as before the statute of limitations’ deadline expires. For instance, many police departments destroy 911 recordings and dispatches after 90 days. Time is of the essence, especially when dealing with personal injury cases.

Total rating 5★ Quality of Representation Excellent!!! These attorneys understand all that is required to achieve favorable results. Talking with Mr. Shapiro and Mr. Guerra is easy and comfortable. I highly recommend this law firm.
I was badly injured in an accident at work. I hired a well-known attorney to represent me, but it wasn’t till Luis Guerra and his firm joined my case that things actually began to take off. Luis Guerra took my case personally and fought hard for me like I was family. I truly believe that if it wasn’t for him I would not have received the settlement that I did! He is an aggressive and HONEST attorney who will fight for what is right. His entire firm is filled with love and compassion for the victims. In the unfortunate event that you or a loved one is injured, I would HIGHLY recommend Luis Guerra.
Not only did Mr. Guerra and Mr. Shapiro meet their reputation but by far exceeded my expectations. They are diligent advocates for their clients, professional and extremely responsive to all inquiries. Most importantly, they had the expertise and genuine personal concern for my well-being that inspired confidence and ultimately resulted in an outstanding result. Mr. Guerra and Mr. Shapiro are attorneys that are truly interested in the welfare of their clients. I highly recommend having their team on your side for any case.
Mr. Luis Guerra is one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. Thank God there are still people like him in the world. He carefully explained the entire process to me so I was aware at all times what was going to happen next.
The quality of representation we received was of the highest anyone could expect. It was a privilege to work with Luis and his staff. I am extremely grateful that I chose you to be our attorney. I am relieved that this matter has been concluded. Thank You for representing us. God Bless You.
