Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Per the most recent crash report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. And per last year’s data, more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes included two or more vehicles. The nature of these multi-vehicle crashes means even more stress for victims and their families.
In fact, exorbitant medical expenses, critical long-term injuries, and even job loss or death are just a few of the unforeseen, often tragic consequences that can affect both victims and their families after an accident. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a Phoenix car accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
