Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona

In 2018, nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. This recent data also showed that more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes involved two or more wounded victims and multiple vehicles.

Whether it’s costly medical bills and long-term injuries or job loss or even death, car accidents can have unfortunate consequences for both victims and their families. But those affected by these tragic incidents can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
