Car Accident Facts in Arizona
As a driver or pedestrian in Arizona, your chances of getting into an accident at some point in your life are statistically high. While you can take precautions to reduce your risk of getting into a collision, negligent and distracted drivers put people in danger daily. In 2017, the Arizona Department of Transportation reported 127,064 total auto accidents in the state. These collisions took 1,000 lives and injured 55,474 others. Many serious accidents share common factors, such as who or what caused the collision.
- Driver distraction
- Improper driver action
- Ignored right-of-way
Aggressive, drunk, distracted, and drowsy drivers cannot perform behind the wheel as a safe or prudent driver would. This could lead to preventable collisions, injuries, and deaths. In other cases, a roadway or product defect could cause an auto accident. A commercial truck could crash because of a defective tire blowout, for example, or a car could flip after hitting a pothole. Identifying the cause of your car accident is a first step toward recovering compensation from the party at fault.
What Types of Compensation Could You Receive?
Arizona is a “fault” car accident state. You will seek initial financial recovery from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. If the insurer denies your claim or alleges your partial fault, however, you may need an attorney to help you go to court in pursuit of fair compensation.
- Health care expenses (past and foreseeable future)
- Lost income and earning capacity
- Pain and emotional suffering
- Property damage repairs
- Wrongful death damages
- Punitive damages
The value of your auto accident claim can depend on many different crash factors. If you suffered catastrophic personal injuries or a loved one died in an automobile accident, you could be eligible for significant recovery.
