Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Car accidents happen regularly in the United States and throughout Arizona. There are over 125,000 motor vehicle collisions that happen in the state of Arizona per year. Approximately 150 people are hurt per day in these accidents. Across the United States, over 6 million car wrecks are reported annually. More than 3 million people are hurt in these wrecks.
Auto accidents can happen for a multitude of different reasons. Vehicle malfunctions, road conditions, and driver negligence all contribute to thousands of car accidents per year. However, driver negligence may contribute to millions of wrecks every year.
Statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association state that approximately 95% of the motor vehicle crashes reported in the United States are caused by driver negligence.
If you or someone you love has recently been injured in an auto collision caused by driver negligence, you deserve to be able to make a full recovery without worrying about money. Unfortunately, the average cost of recovering from a severe car wreck in the United States is more than $60k. The average American does not have access to this kind of money, which means it is monetarily difficult for most people to make full financial recoveries after suffering serious injuries in car wrecks.
