Vehicle accidents across Arizona are on the rise, with almost 55,000 injuries happening in 2018 alone and more than 1,000 fatalities from car accidents. The summer months bring even more traffic to state highways, increasing the risk of these hazardous crashes, according to the latest reports and year-over-year information from the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Car crashes have unforeseen, tragic consequences for victims and their families, from expensive medical bills to long-term injuries and even job loss. However, victims and their families can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation and justice from a personal injury or death lawsuit.
