Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 55,000 car accidents occurred across the state of Arizona in 2018 alone. And of these total wrecks, more than half were multi-vehicle wrecks, involving at least two cars and more than two injured victims.
From expensive medical bills and critical injuries, to job loss, tragic consequences may plague victims and their families following a wreck. But those affected by these accidents can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
