Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. I am being sued for 50k personal injury for car accident I was not involved in-occurred in another state. What do I do?
A: From the facts it may be that you share the same name as the actual defendant in the subject claim. In the past I have had clients who this same issue has happened to. I have been able to resolve the situation by presenting evidence to the Plaintiff's attorney that he has the wrong person. The Plaintiff's attorney is usually grateful to learn he has served the wrong person as he can now focus on finding the correct defendant for his claim. Another option is to call your insurance and have them assist with this claim. After all you have liability insurance for accidents, and this is what you are being sued for. Because the Plaintiff's attorney has named the wrong person it should be easy for your insurance company to resolve this issue.
Q. What do the new tiers mean 10 interrogatories, 10 request for admissions mean. Is it the amount asked in the discovery?
A: The new civil rules in Arizona at 16 A.R.S. Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 26 lay out the determinations for three different "tiers" of cases. These different tiers each have specific amounts of discovery allowed based on case complexity and the amount in controversy. In terms of damages, the tier's are as follows: tier 1 cases are $50,000 or less; tier 2 cases are more than $50,000 and less than $300,000; and, tier 3 cases are those where the monetary relief requested is in excess of $300,000. This is further complicated as courts can assign a case to a tier based on the amount in controversy, the court's evaluation, and by stipulation of the parties or motion. The tiers each have varying amounts of discovery permitted, which requires that you plan accordingly when filing a complaint.
Q. I'm not sure how many I can ask or request.
A: The new civil rules in Arizona have different discovery limits applicable to new cases based on complexity/damages. 16 A.R.S. Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 26.2 lays out the various case characteristics for cases from Tier 1-3. You really need to determine which tier your case falls into and then simply follow the rules. Your question provides the answer for a tier 2 case. If your case is in a different tier, refer to rule 26.2.
