Injurious Accidents in Arizona
With nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 fatalities from car accidents reported last year, serious crashes are on the rise in Arizona. Since 2016, the Arizona Department of Transportation data shows that the risk of these dangerous accidents has increased. Furthermore, many of these accidents are caused by road rage, impairment or some other form of driver negligence.
Injury accidents mean unforeseen, often tragic, consequences for victims and their families, including high medical costs and long-term injuries or even job loss. However, victims and their families can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek their fair compensation from a personal injury or death lawsuit.
