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 (ADOT), nearly 35,000 injuries as a result of car accidents occurred across the state last year. ADOT’s most recent accident data also showed that more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes involved two or more injured victims.
Injury accidents can have tragic consequences for victims and their families, including long-term medical expenses and even job loss or death. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
