According to the latest accident report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 35,000 injuries occurred as a result of car wrecks across the state in 2018. In fact, of the nearly 55,000 accidents that occurred in Arizona last year, more than half involved two or more injured victims and several vehicles.
From extensive medical bills and injuries to job loss or even death, victims and their families can suffer tragic, unforeseen consequences after a serious crash. However, those affected by these accidents can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation and justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
