Truck Crashes in Arizona
According to accident numbers recorded by the Arizona Department of Transportation, a total of 97 deaths, 2,728 injuries and 516 instances of damaged property occurred in 2012 after 12,500 truck and bus accidents. And when it comes to truck and bus accidents, the results for those involved are often devastating.
Due to the nature of truck accidents, injuries and property damage are often much more serious. When victims are involved in accidents with trucks contracted to large companies, they could be facing an uphill battle with insurance companies, especially when fatalities are involved. But those affected by these sudden, unforeseen, and stressful crashes can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in a wreck resulting from other drivers’ negligent actions.
