Injury Wrecks in Arizona

Recently, the Arizona Department of Transportation published new crash data that showed nearly 35,000 accident injuries across the state in 2018. And according to last year’s numbers, more than half of the 55,000 total crashes that occurred included multiple injuries.

When serious car accidents occur, victims and their families may deal with costly medical expenses, critical long-term injuries, and even job loss or death. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
