Fatal Car Accidents

With over 6,553,255 people living in the state of Arizona, and some of the most dangerous roads in America located in our state, there are bound to be a number of fatal car accidents which occur. Unfortunately, in 2012, there were a total of 741 reported fatal auto accidents across the state, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Recently, Popular Mechanics has deemed Interstate 10 as one of Americas Top 10 Most Dangerous Roads, as there are dozens of accidents, injuries, and fatalities that occur on it each and every year. While many drivers across the state do their best to avoid an accident, others seem to disregard the rules of the road and operate their vehicle negligently and recklessly, thus resulting in an alarming amount of accidents across Arizona and the United States.

Often times, everyone surrounding the victims of auto accidents suffer both emotionally, financially, and are forced to deal with an unexpected situation. If this situation sounds familiar, our Phoenix car accident lawyers believe that you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages.
