Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
It’s clear that injurious car accidents are an unfortunate reality of life in Arizona. In fact, the latest crash data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. Furthermore, these recent accident numbers show that more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes involved multiple injured victims and two or more vehicles.
Whether it’s exorbitant medical expenses and serious long-term injuries or even job loss and death, tragic circumstances may plague victims and their families after an accident. But those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice and fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
