Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Nearly 35,000 injuries as a result of car accidents occurred across the state last year and more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes, involved two or more vehicles, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Crashes involving multiple vehicles can have tragic consequences for victims and their families, including long-term medical expenses and serious injuries. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
