Injurious Wrecks in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation published its most recent crash report, which showed almost 35,000 accident injuries statewide in 2018. Of last year’s nearly 55,000 total accidents, more than half involved multiple injured victims. Oftentimes, victims may even succumb to their injuries, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of a serious accident.
Serious injuries, astronomical medical costs, and even job loss may plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
