Injurious Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona
A recent accident report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that there were more than 130,000 crashes across the state in 2018. Unfortunately, these wrecks resulted in numerous injuries, and at least 37,000 wrecks involved two or more victims with serious injuries. These injuries, oftentimes requiring medical attention or hospitalization, can affect victims and their families for months or even years after an accident.
In fact, victims 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 from work, resulting in lost wages. Thankfully, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in a wreck caused by the negligence of another driver.
