Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families.
According to studies from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Arizona had one of the top five most dangerous highways across the country. Numerous accidents, including those with fatalities, have occurred on Interstate 10, spanning from New Mexico to California and running through Arizona. In fact, in 2018 this span saw more than 100 automobile deaths.
Those who sustain crash injuries often have to cope with physical and emotional trauma. From documenting their injuries to negotiating with insurance companies and even dealing with job loss, victims are blindsided by tragic consequences from crashes, especially when they are suffering due to the negligent actions of other drivers. But those affected can reach out to a personal injury lawyer and seek the justice they deserve after a wreck.
