Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona
In 2018, more than half of the total car crashes that occurred across the state of Arizona involved at least two vehicles. And according to a recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 55,000 car accidents total occurred, meaning that more than 25,000 of those involved multiple drivers.
Car accidents can mean tragic circumstances for victims and their families, especially those that occur as a result of other drivers’ negligent actions. Costly medical bills, serious long-term injuries, and even job loss are just a few of the devastating consequences that may befall victims and their families after a wreck. However, those affected can contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
