What Causes Most Car Accidents in Arizona?
Car accidents are the most common cause of unintentional injury deaths in the United States. In 2017, 127,064 car accidents occurred in Arizona, according to Department of Transportation data. These crashes caused 1,000 deaths and almost 55,500 injuries. Gallagher & Kennedy’s Plaintiffs’ Personal Injury and Wrongful Death practice group has enough experience in the car accident practice area to recognize the most common causes of collisions in Arizona.
- Driver distraction
- Drowsy driving
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
- Vehicle defects
- Roadway hazards
Driver error causes the most serious and fatal motor vehicle accidents. It is every driver’s legal responsibility to obey traffic laws, drive prudently, and reasonably prevent auto accidents and collisions. Failure to fulfill these duties, resulting in a car wreck, is negligence. Civil laws in Arizona allow car accident injury victims to seek financial recompense from the at-fault party or parties.
Insurance Claim vs. Personal Injury Lawsuit
Arizona is a fault-based insurance state, meaning the party most at fault for causing the collision will be liable for damages. You may seek initial recovery through the at-fault party’s insurance company after a car accident. If the insurance company denies your claim or deals with it unfairly, you may have grounds to take the driver or another party to court in pursuit of better compensation. A tort claim against a driver, product manufacturer, or the government could end in full recovery for your economic and noneconomic damages, including pain and suffering.
