Injury Car Crashes in Arizona
The interstates in Arizona are some of the most dangerous highways in the country, ranking in the top five across the nation for fatalities and injuries. In fact, hundreds of thousands of motorists travel on the highways in the greater Phoenix area on a daily basis, putting many drivers at risk for serious collisions on the major thoroughfares.
Furthermore, many fatalities on Arizona highways occur each day. By the end of each calendar year, almost 1,000 fatalities are seen statewide as a result of these serious car accidents. When it comes to these crashes, victims and their families may pay a steep price.
From painful long-term injuries and trauma to emotional distress and financial insecurity for years to come, wrecks cause tragic consequences for both victims and their families. Oftentimes, fatal accidents leave victims’ families to pick up the pieces in the aftermath.
