Arizona car accidents occur on a daily basis, and by far the most common type of collision is the rear-end crash.

Anyone who has been injured in this type of a collision should seek the immediate help of an Phoenix car accident lawyer, as there are several different types of compensation that could be pursued depending on the circumstances of the crash and there are several different parties that could become involved. Below is an overview of this issue.
Lawsuits for Damages and Injuries From an Arizona Rear-End Collision
When a motorist slams into the rear of another vehicle and the person in the front vehicle is injured, there are several forms of compensation that could be pursued. A few examples of these forms of compensation are explained below:
- Medical costs - Medical costs pile up quickly after a rear-end collision in Arizona, especially when one considers that the most common injuries that result from these types of crashes include whiplash and traumatic brain injuries.
- Lost income - If someone is seriously injured, it's possible for that person to be unable to work for a period of time. When this is the case, the situation becomes ever more stressful as medical bills begin to come due.
- Pain and suffering - Pain and suffering is an intangible form of damages designed to compensate those who have been harmed for the lowering of their quality of life as a result of the rear-end collision that led to their injuries.
