Fatal Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Arizona
Per data released by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, nearly 130,000 crashes occurred in Arizona last year alone. And more than 11,000 of these accidents involved at least two drivers and multiple injuries or even fatalities.
When multiple victims sustain injuries in an accident, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, physical distress, emotional trauma, and long-term financial difficulties. Occasionally, victims succumb to their injuries from these accidents, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces. Due to the negligence of other drivers, families are forced to cope with tragic consequences, all while mourning their lost loved ones.
However, the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from an injury attorney. A skilled attorney can help victims seek justice and the fair compensation they deserve from suffering in an accident that occurred through no fault of their own.
