Arizona Laws Governing Wrongful Death and Survival Claims
Arizona provides for two separate and distinct causes of action when someone dies as the result of the negligent or intentional conduct of another: a wrongful death action and a survival action. Arizona has statutes that deal specifically with these claims allowing compensation for “wrongful death” and “survivorship” (A.R.S. §§ 12-611 et seq. and 14-3110). The claim under the wrongful death statute and the claim under the survival statute are separate and distinct with separate and distinct purposes even though they originate from same wrongful act. The wrongful death statute makes the person who caused the death accountable for the damages caused to those the decedent leaves behind; the survival statute makes the person who caused the death accountable for the damages caused to the decedent. The purpose of providing both causes of action is to give and preserve to the parties damaged, a complete remedy and opportunity to recover the complete loss sustained because of the wrongful injury and death.
