Fatal Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona
Per data released by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, nearly 130,000 crashes occurred in Arizona last year alone. And nearly 11,000 of these accidents involved more than two drivers and multiple injuries or even fatalities.
When multiple victims sustained injuries in an accident, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, physical distress, emotional trauma, and long-term financial difficulties. And when families lose their loved ones due to the negligence of other drivers, they’re left to cope with tragic consequences.
However, the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from an attorney. A skilled attorney can help victims seek the justice and fair compensation they deserve, either from a personal injury suit or a wrongful death suit.
