Multi-Vehicle Collisions in Arizona
Nearly 130,000 crashes occurred in Arizona in 2018, according to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation. It’s clear that car accidents are an unfortunate reality of life, and the majority of crashes involve multiple victims. In fact, nearly 111,000 of the total wrecks that occurred statewide involved multiple vehicles.
Wrecks that involve more than one driver can cause even more inconvenience for all involved. The stress and difficulty of car accidents, from dealing with insurance companies to coping with long-term injuries, are only compounded when it comes to multi-vehicle wrecks. However, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been injured due to other drivers’ negligent actions.
