Fatal Car Accidents in Arizona

Phoenix, AZ - Officers Investigating Fatal Car Crash on L-101 at 7th AvePer a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Arizona is one of the top five most dangerous states in the country for drivers and pedestrians. Fatalities and injuries from accidents are especially prevalent during the warmer months between May and September.

Victims of these injury crashes go through physical and emotional trauma, often having to document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and even deal with job loss. Plus, grieving families who lose their loved ones in fatal accidents are left to pick up the pieces in the aftermath. But these individuals who are affected can seek help from a Phoenix personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in an accident that’s caused by the negligent actions of another driver.

They sound friendly and they make you think that they care about your interests. They actually may sound reassuring. However, be aware that if an insurance representative asks you to give them a statement, you may not have to do so, and it may actually not be in your best interest.
