Injurious Head-on Accidents 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, several of which were classified as head-on collisions. Unfortunately, these wrecks resulted in numerous injuries and occasionally, deadly consequences for victims. In fact, at least 37,000 wrecks involved at least two victims with serious injuries requiring medical attention or hospitalization.
When drivers or their passengers are wounded in a crash, they often 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. Thankfully, victims and their families can seek help from a Mesa personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in a wreck caused by the negligence of another driver.
