Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
In Arizona, more than half of the car accidents that occurred last year involved more than one injured victim. And according to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, the total car accidents numbered more than 55,000 statewide in 2018 alone.
Devastating consequences may occur after an accident where another driver was at fault. Whether it’s costly medical bills and long-term injuries or even job loss, unfortunate, stressful circumstances can plague victims and their families. However, those affected can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
