The Arizona Department of Transportation’s recent accident report showed that in 2018, there were nearly 130,000 motor vehicle crashes across the state. Of these crashes, almost 37,000 involved two or more injured persons in need of medical care or even hospitalization.
Those suffering from crash injuries often experience both physical and mental trauma. Whether it’s documenting their injuries, negotiating with insurance companies, or even taking an extended leave from their jobs, victims must cope with a number of stressful circumstances.
