Injury Truck Accidents in Arizona
Last year in Arizona, more than half of the total car wrecks that occurred last year involved more than one injured victim. According to a recent crash data report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 55,000 car accidents total occurred across the state in 2018, with more than 30,000 injuries. Several of these accidents involved large buses or semi-trucks, making injuries that much more serious.
Tragic effects may befall victims and their families, especially after truck accidents. From exorbitant medical costs and critical long-term injuries to job hassles, devastating, unforeseen circumstances can plague victims and their families after an injury crash. But those affected can contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
