Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
With nearly 55,000 total accidents statewide in 2018 alone, it’s clear that car crashes are an unfortunate reality of life. Several of those wrecks resulted in serious injuries as well, with more than half involving more than two injured victims, according to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Critical long-term injuries, expensive medical bills, and missed work are just a few of the tragic, unforeseen consequences that befall victims and families after a serious accident. However, those affected can contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
