Fatal Car Accidents in Arizona
Statistics from 2018 show that over 108,000 auto accidents occurred throughout Arizona that involved two or more vehicles. When multiple vehicles are involved in collisions, the possibilities of injuries are greatly increased. In fact, more than 36,500 of these accidents leave one or more people injured. Numerous victims involved in collisions are left with injuries that require surgery, therapy, and extensive treatment. Law enforcement agents are at an increased risk of suffering injuries due to the fact that their line of employment requires them to spend extended amounts of time safeguarding roads throughout the state. The impacts of auto accidents can be far-reaching. However, tens of thousands of people involved in collisions are injured. Although we hope that everyone is able to recover from their injuries, this is far from reality.
In fact, more than 900 motor vehicle accidents in Arizona cause the death of at least one person involved each year. Fatal accidents leave grieving families to deal with overwhelming consequences. In many cases, surviving relatives are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and funeral arrangements for their loved ones. When victims lose their lives in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Arizona as soon as possible.
