Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation reported that approximately 100 fatal accidents occurred on local highways in the last year alone. Furthermore, multi-vehicle accidents on Arizona highways were responsible for hundreds of thousands of serious injuries. And though these types of injurious or fatal car accidents do not happen as commonly as other types of vehicle accidents, they cause devastating results for those involved. Oftentimes, victims and their families suffer tragic consequences for years after a serious multi-vehicle accident.
That’s why when a victim sustains injuries or even loses their life in a multi-vehicle accident, it is crucial for family members to speak with an accident attorney in Arizona.
At ELG, our Phoenix and Mesa attorneys have helped family members bear the costs and emotional damages that pile up after a car accident.
When a family files a claim against those at fault, they are able to claim damages for aspects like lost wages, funeral expenses, and other incurred damages.
After an Arizona car accident, an insurance adjuster may want to speak with you. They sound friendly and they make you think that they care about your interests. They actually may sound reassuring.
Don’t think that they are speaking with you to maximize your benefit. These representatives work for the insurance company, and in reality, it’s their bottom line that they are concerned about first and foremost, not you. They are charged with saving their insurance company money, not necessarily getting you the treatment you need.
If an insurance representative asks you to give them a statement, you may not have to do so, and it may actually not be in your best interest. In fact, at ELG, when we represent a client and an adverse insurance company asks us to allow for a recorded statement from our client, 99% of the time the answer is a definitive no! Our recommendation is to tell them you will seek out counsel first, then call us at ELG.
