Fatal Rear-End Collisions in Arizona
In just a few seconds, your whole life can be changed by a car accident that you literally didn’t see coming: A reckless driver bulldozed into the back of your vehicle, causing serious injury or death, and leaving you with enormous hospital bills, in pain, and unable to work, or depriving a family of someone they love. The stress is unbearable and you have no idea who to ask for help.
In almost all instances, the driver of the striking vehicle is liable for a rear-end accident. Frequent driver errors include:
- Inclement weather
- Poor judgment
- Drunk driving
- Improper lane changes
Rear-end accidents often happen on crowded highways or at intersections. Even at relatively slow speeds, this type of collision can cause debilitating injuries to the neck and soft tissue of the occupants in the front vehicle. At higher speeds, the injuries they cause could be catastrophic and initiate a chain reaction crash, which can make your Phoenix car accident claim considerably more complicated.
