There are more than 127,000 car, truck, and motorcycle collisions each year in Arizona. The Arizona Department of Transportation’s 2017 Motor Vehicle Crash Facts Report, noted that traffic deaths rose for the third straight year in 2017, climbing to 1,000. Pedestrians accounted for nearly a quarter of those killed. There were also over 55,400 people injured in these traffic collisions, and the numbers in 2018 are sure to have risen.
In 90% of all accidents are caused by driver conduct on the road. One driver may have been speeding, failed to yield the right-of-way, driving under the influence, using a cell phone, or otherwise distracted at the time of the crash. Victims and their family members may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
