Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona
Hundreds of car wrecks occur each day on Arizona highways, ranging from minor fender benders to severe accidents involving injuries or even deaths. Nearly 130,000 accidents happened throughout the state last year, with almost 11,000 involving more than two drivers and several injured victims, according to information published by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
Multi-vehicle crashes often compound the stress and trauma that victims already feel from being involved in a wreck. After these crashes, victims have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, emotional distress, physical issues, and financial difficulties. However, the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from a personal injury lawyer to receive the justice and fair compensation they deserve.
