Car Accidents in Arizona
In 2017, the Arizona Department of Transportation conducted a report that showed over 127,000 motor vehicle accidents took place within the state. Of these, about 38,000 resulted in bodily injury. Every year, these accidents continue to send many parties to the hospital and cause financial trauma to those involved. Horrific car accidents occur far too often and cause devastation in their wake. A traffic accident can completely disrupt a person’s life, which is why all victims should speak with a skilled car accident attorney about their rights moving forward.
