Fatal Auto Accidents in Arizona
More than 1,200 people died as a result of traffic collisions in the state of Arizona in 2021. This is the highest increase in our state and more than a decade. Unfortunately, we continue to see innocent people die day after day as a result of negligent drivers.
Some of the leading factors in vehicle collisions across our state include:
- Failing to yield
- Running red lights
Families who have lost a loved one in a car accident in Arizona may be able to recover damages through a wrongful death claim. Although no amount of money can ever truly compensate for the loss of life, monetary damages may help ease the financial burden that comes with such a tragedy.
Most wrongful death claims are based on negligence, which means that the person who caused the accident, or their estate, can be held responsible for the damages. In order to win a wrongful death claim, however, the family must be able to prove that the death was caused by the other party’s negligence. This can be done by showing that the other party breached their duty of care and that this breach resulted in the victim’s death.
