Injurious Accidents in Arizona
Hundreds of car collisions take place across the state each day. Car accidents are an unfortunate but common fact of life, particularly in Arizona. In fact, reports from the Arizona Department of Transportation show that accidents are on the rise, especially those involving multiple drivers and several injuries. And even though hundreds of minor crashes occur statewide on a day-to-day basis, the victims still suffer from physical and emotional trauma. When victims suffer in a crash that occurred due to the negligent actions of other parties, their trauma is only compounded.
Nearly 50,000 injuries occurred as a result of crashes last year alone. From long-term injuries and costly hospital bills to mental distress and financial difficulties, victims and families pay the price after auto accidents that happen through no fault of their own. But those affected can seek help from an accident lawyer to protect their legal rights.
