Arizona highways see hundreds of car wrecks daily, ranging from minor fender benders to serious crashes involving injuries or even fatalities. According to data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 130,000 crashes occurred throughout the state last year, with almost 11,000 involving more than two drivers and multiple injuries.
When it comes to multi-vehicle accidents, the stress that victims already feel from being involved in a wreck is only compounded.

However, those affected can seek help from a personal injury lawyer and learn more about protecting their legal rights or seeking compensation after a multi-car crash.
