Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Statewide crash numbers from last year show that two or more vehicles were involved in more than half of the 55,000 total car accidents that occurred. The Arizona Transportation Department notes that those crashes resulted in nearly 35,000 injuries. Because of the nature of these multi-vehicle wrecks, especially those that occur on busy highways, victims and families could be paying a steep price.
Despite an overall decline in the number of crashes and injuries on Arizona roads last year, traffic deaths were at their highest level in more than a decade, particularly on major thoroughfares across the state.
In fact, there were 1,010 fatalities on Arizona’s roads last year alone, according to the annual crash facts report released recently by the Department of Transportation.
Those involved in highway vehicle accidents may experience a number of tragic, unforeseen consequences after a wreck, from long-term medical expenses and serious injuries to even job loss or death. But those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
