Can I Pursue Financial Compensation?
In a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff’s attorney is responsible for proving the decedent’s death was caused by the negligence of another party. There are four elements in a negligence claim:
- A Duty of Care was Owed: The at-fault party owed the decedent a duty of care, which is a legal responsibility to use reasonable care to prevent harm to the decedent.
- The Duty was Breached: The at-fault party failed to fulfill the duty of care owed to the decedent.
- Link Between Breached Duty and Death: The at-fault party’s failure to fulfill the duty of care resulted in the decedent’s death.
- Damages Exist: These could include financial damages like funeral expenses and lost income, along with emotional damages like pain and suffering.
There are many different examples of negligence that could lead to a wrongful death:
- A driver’s failure to follow traffic laws, resulting in a fatal accident
- A product manufacturer’s failure to address known defects in a product
- A drug company’s failure to warn patients of dangerous side effects
- A doctor’s failure to perform within accepted medical standards
- A property owner’s failure to address dangerous conditions on his or her property
Phillips Law Group has an entire team of paralegals, investigators and other support staff prepared to thoroughly investigate your loved one’s death and attempt to gather evidence of negligence.

Arizona Requirements for Filing a Wrongful Death Case
In Arizona, the following parties associated with the decedent are permitted to file wrongful death claims in civil court:
- Representative of the deceased’s estate
- Surviving spouse
- Surviving children
- Surviving parent or guardian
You can learn more about these requirements in a free legal consultation.
What Is the Value of My Case?
Each wrongful death claim involves unique circumstances that help to determine the compensation that may be available.
There are generally two categories of damages in a wrongful death claim.
Damages to the Decedent’s Estate
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical bills for the deceased’s final treatment
- Lost wages that the decedent would have earned
- Benefits that the decedent would have earned
- Compensation for the decedent’s pain and suffering before death
- Property damage
Damages Suffered by the Family
- Pain and suffering due to the death of a loved one
- Value of lost household services that would have been performed by the decedent
- Loss of care, guidance and companionship
If you have questions about the types of damages recoverable through wrongful death action, we are here to answer them.
Deadlines for Filing Wrongful Death Claims
While each case is unique, generally, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the decedent’s date of death (A.R.S. Â§ 12-542(2)). If this deadline is missed, it may not be possible to pursue compensation through a lawsuit.
However, the deadline for your case could be different so it is important to speak with a qualified attorney about how much time you have to take legal action.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
