Injury Car Crashes in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation’s recent accident report showed that there were more than 130,000 crashes across the state in 2018. Unfortunately, these wrecks resulted in numerous injuries. In fact, at least 37,000 wrecks involved at least two victims with serious injuries requiring medical attention or hospitalization.
Even more concerning is the fact that there are several fatalities each day from car crashes across Arizona. This alarming trend amounts to more than 1,000 traffic deaths every year.
When drivers or their passengers are wounded in a crash, they may be subject to tragic circumstances. Oftentimes, victims and their families have to cope with both physical problems and emotional trauma. Wreck victims may be required to document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time away from work, resulting in lost wages. When victims lose their lives in a car crash, their grieving families are left to pick up the pieces.
