Arizona Car Wrecks
Arizona is no stranger to car accidents. Close to 200,000 vehicle crashes happen in the Grand Canyon State per year. These wrecks injure nearly 70,000 individuals annually and take the lives of more than 1,000 people every year. The actions of negligent drivers often lead to injury collisions in the state of Arizona. Negligent acts, including distracted driving, driving while drunk or high, or over-tired, as well as at unsafe speeds, cause millions of auto accidents throughout the country and thousands in Arizona every year.
When car wrecks are caused by negligent drivers, those involved often sustain severe injuries that can land them in the hospital for weeks or even months. This can put a serious damper on a person’s life and ability to function optimally.
