Phoenix, AZ (December 12, 2022) – A car crash ended in injuries in Phoenix on the morning of December 11. Sometime before 4:00 a.m., emergency crews were sent to the scene of the accident on Interstate 17.
The Department of Public Safety reports that a vehicle collided with the median wall near Camelback Road before crashing into another vehicle. It then crossed multiple lanes of the road before coming to a stop.
One person sustained serious injuries in the accident. The victim was unresponsible when paramedics arrived at the scene. The Arizona Department of Transportation states that the northbound lanes of the interstate at Camelback Road were closed for some time in the early morning hours of December 11.
Police continue to investigate the details of the incident. We hope for the full recovery of the injured victim.
Arizona Car Crashes
If you or a loved one of yours has been involved in a traffic accident, statistically speaking, there is a one-in-three chance that you or another involved party will sustain injuries. The extent and nature of the injuries will widely vary, from bruises, scrapes, and whiplash, to brain injuries and other life-altering wounds, even wrongful death. Injuries that are commonly suffered in serious car crashes include broken bones, lacerations, spine, neck, and back injuries, brain injuries, and more.
Some car crash injuries may be obviously apparent from the very beginning, while others do not display symptoms until days or weeks after the crash occurs. This is usually the case with soft tissue injuries, where the symptoms are merely stiffness and numbness at first but persist into more severe problems later. This is why it is important to see a doctor regardless of the seeming severity of your injuries. Seeing a licensed medical professional will also safeguard your legal rights later if and when you choose to file a personal injury claim for compensation.
Filing a personal injury claim is necessary when you have been hurt by the actions of another driver. The costs associated with your injuries alone may exceed your budget, let alone the costs of vehicle repairs and the wages you will lose while stuck recovering in the hospital. Intangible losses like pain, suffering, embarrassment, loss of consortium, and other damages may also result from a serious car crash and may also qualify for financial compensation when you file a personal injury claim.
