Injurious Car Crashes in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation’s latest accident report found that more than 130,000 injuries as a result of car wrecks in 2018. Sadly, those wrecks also resulted in numerous deaths. In fact, at least 37,000 of the injuries involved at least two seriously injured patients requiring hospitalization or medical care, and many of these victims later succumbed to their injuries.
Oftentimes, wreck victims must document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time from work. They may even have to deal with lost wages or job loss. But victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in an accident that’s caused by the negligent actions of another driver.
