Serious Car Wrecks in Arizona
According to authorities in Arizona, nearly 55,000 total accidents happened statewide in 2018 alone, with more than half of those wrecks involving multiple vehicles. Furthermore, more than half involved at least two injured victims, per data from the Arizona Department of Transportation.
From critical long-term injuries to expensive medical bills and even job loss or death, serious car wrecks can mean tragic, unforeseen consequences for victims and their families. And highway accidents can be even more severe due to the higher speed factor and increased potential for serious injuries or fatalities.
