Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, almost 55,000 wrecks occurred across the state last year. And of the total accidents that occurred in Arizona, more than half involved at least two cars and more than two injured victims.
Costly medical bills, critical injuries, and even job loss are just a few of the tragic consequences that may plague victims and their families following a wreck. But those affected by these accidents can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation and the justice they deserve from a personal injury lawsuit.
Our Arizona accident attorneys at ELG have years of experience advocating for victims and their families and seeking fair compensation for those affected by accidents.
If an insurance representative asks you to give them a statement, you may not have to do so, and it may actually not be in your best interest. In fact, at ELG, when we represent a client and an adverse insurance company asks us to allow for a recorded statement from our client, the answer is a definitive no the majority of the time!
Our recommendation is to tell them you will seek out counsel first, then call us at ELG Accident Attorneys. Reach out to our auto accident lawyers in Arizona at (623) 321-0566 to schedule your free consultation today and learn more about your options.
