There are times when Arizona residents may question the safety of the roads, either in their local community or across the state. Most people tend to know of at least one area where car accidents seem to occur frequently. Some have even been involved in or seen collisions that have occurred on streets that are under construction. Regardless of when and where a car accident happens, it is certainly reasonable to question whether the government may be held liable for any damages sustained -- if road safety issues are a concern.
Injuries suffered in a car accident can be wide-ranging. Some people may experience minor injuries that do not require medical treatment, while the injuries suffered by others can be more serious -- if not fatal. A rear-end collision is probably the most common form of car accident seen in Arizona and across the nation. While some of these incidents may have fatal outcomes, the vast majority of rear-end collisions result in other injuries -- such as whiplash.
A multi-vehicle wreck in Arizona has claimed the lives of three people. The car accident, which occurred just a few days into the month of April, happened midday, a few hours north of Tucson on the U.S. 93. The road was closed for over three hours to allow authorities and cleanup crews to work the scene.
When it comes to distracted driving, no state is immune. This inattentive behavior is considered a national epidemic. Thousands of people are injured or even killed in accidents where the driver responsible was found to have been distracted at the time of the crash. Those in Arizona who have been negatively affected by such a car accident are entitled to seek financial redress.
Speeding, which is common on Arizona roads, is one of the most common factors in car accidents. At some point, every driver has violated the speed limit, but law enforcement agencies across the country are seeing an increase in drivers who are driving above the speed limit by 15-20 mph. If this type of reckless driving caused your car accident or the the death of a loved one, you may have legal options.
A total of four individuals were recently injured in a collision in Arizona. This particular car accident occurred more than 100 miles northwest of the Tucson area. Police are still in the process of investigating the cause of this crash.
A car crash is something many people will experience in their lifetime. For the majority of Arizona residents, these accidents will likely be minor incidents that everyone walks away from relatively unharmed. Unfortunately, major collisions do occur -- more often than anyone would like -- and a car accident like that can have devastating consequences.
When a serious car accident happens, it is not uncommon for those involved to have a mountain of questions. A car crash that results in significant injuries -- or worse -- is not a small issue, and the many concerns that this type of incident can bring about deserve proper attention. One question some Arizona residents may have after a major wreck may involve how, or if, compensation can be granted if the person deemed responsible for the accident doesn't survive.
Two-lane roads can be found in areas all across Arizona. These roads, while considered sufficient for the traffic levels, can be dangerous for drivers in some circumstances. Sadly, a recent car accident on one of these roads claimed the life of a woman. This incident required traffic to be detoured for several hours while local law enforcement, the Department of Public Safety and clean-up crews worked the scene.
A group of cyclists was recently struck by a car in Arizona. As a result, one individual was killed and another suffered life-threatening injuries. This car crash is still under investigation.
