Fatal Accidents in Arizona
Pedestrian accidents are deadly everywhere in the U.S., but Arizona frequently sees large amounts of fatal pedestrian accidents – more than many other states. In fact, they have experienced a recent rise in pedestrian fatalities over the last 10 years. Pedestrians typically suffer severe trauma due to these accidents because they have no protection from harm in an accident with a motor vehicle driver. This is especially true in cases involving young children. After one of these accidents, it is imperative that a surviving family speaks with a wrongful death attorney about their legal options.
