Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona
Last year’s statewide crash numbers show that more than half of the 55,000 total car accidents that occurred in 2018 involved two or more vehicles. And the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) notes that nearly 35,000 injuries resulted from those crashes.
Victims and their families may experience a number of tragic, unforeseen consequences after a wreck, from long-term medical expenses and serious injuries to even job loss or death. But those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
