Phoenix, AZ (March 29, 2022) – Seven people are recovering in the hospital after four vehicles collided with one another at an intersection in west Phoenix on Monday, March 28th.
According to an official from Phoenix Fire, the accident occurred at the intersection of Thomas Road and 71st Avenue, near North 75th Avenue.

Car Accidents in Arizona
The majority of auto accidents do not result in a trial or lawsuit. Both parties are usually keen to settle with their insurance carrier and are not eager to go to trial.
There are some situations, however, where a lawsuit is essential for collecting the compensation you are owed following an accident. This includes car accidents that are particularly tragic and caused the serious injury or death of a victim, or should an insurance carrier refuse to deliver a fair amount of financial compensation that will actually cover the victim’s damages.
Your insurance provider may depreciate the actual value of your damages or downplay the amount of coverage you deserve based on the circumstances of your accident.
When this happens, having an experienced lawyer in your corner that is able to negotiate with the insurance carrier and defend your rights is your best chance of getting the compensation you are entitled to.
