A total of 97 deaths, 2,728 injuries and 516 instances of damaged property were recorded by the Arizona Department of Transportation in 2012 after 12,500 truck and bus accidents. When it comes to truck and bus accidents, the results for those involved are often devastating.
The nature of truck accidents can make injuries and property damage much more serious. When victims are involved in accidents with trucks contracted to large companies, they could be facing an uphill battle with insurance companies. But those affected by these sudden, unforeseen, and stressful crashes can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in a wreck resulting from other drivers’ negligent actions.
