Personal Injury from Car Accident
Car accidents are by far the most common personal injury case in the United States. With millions of drivers on the road today, the amount of accidents and injuries resulting from accidents continues to increase. According to ADOT in 2016 there were 126,845 car accidents in Arizona with 56,636 (or 45%) resulting in injury. These accidents are usually caused because a driver was distracted or not following the rules of the road.
Getting injured in a car accident can not only traumatic, but it can be very expensive as well. While insurance can cover the damages to the vehicle, often time’s accident victims are left covering medical expenses and have to take time off of work to recover. These expenses can add up quickly and if you were the victim of an accident why should you have to pay for it?
