Injurious Car Crashes in Arizona
The latest accident report from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that the state had more than 130,000 accidents in 2018. Unfortunately, numerous injuries resulted from these wrecks.

Furthermore, many of these wrecks are caused by distracted or impaired drivers.
Those who sustain crash injuries often have to cope with both physical and emotional trauma. Wreck victims must document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time from work.
