Arizona Car Accidents
Car wrecks take place in Arizona and throughout the United States at an alarming rate. Tens of thousands of people are hurt in Arizona car wrecks per year, while millions of people throughout the United States suffer serious injuries every year due to auto collisions. With how often everyone drives in or rides in cars, everyone is bound to become involved in a collision at some point in their lives.
Recent statistics concerning how often we become involved in car wrecks throughout our lives found that the average American is involved in a car accident about once every 17 years. When you have been hurt in a severe collision, you may be wondering how you’re going to make a full recovery without breaking the bank. Severe injuries often cost a fortune. For example, the average cost of recovering from extensive injuries suffered in an auto accident is about $65,000 in America.
Financial compensation can be awarded to injured accident victims if they can prove that their wrecks were caused by the negligent actions of another motorist. More than 90% of the car accidents reported in the United States are caused by a negligent driver, which means negligent drivers cause millions of traffic collisions per year.
Driving while distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injuries or even death. Choosing to act careless or reckless while behind the wheel is a very selfish and dangerous thing to do. If more people were mindful while driving, more people would stay safe out on the roads.
