Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Arizona
The most recent crash data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) showed that nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state last year. And of the nearly 55,000 total crashes that occurred in 2018, more than half involved at least two vehicles.
Victims and their families affected by multi-vehicle accidents may suffer tragic consequences, including expensive medical bills, extensive property damage, and serious long-term injuries. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix vehicle crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
