Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Statewide crash numbers from last year show that two or more vehicles were involved in more than half of the 55,000 total car accidents that occurred. The Arizona Transportation Department notes that those crashes resulted in nearly 35,000 injuries. Because of the nature of these multi-vehicle wrecks, victims and families could be paying a steep price.
Furthermore, those involved in multi-vehicle accidents may experience a number of tragic, unforeseen consequences after a wreck, from long-term medical expenses and serious injuries to even job loss or death. But those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
