Car Accidents in Arizona

Scottsdale, AZ - One Dead, One Injured in Collision With USPS Van McDowell Rd and Scottsdale Rd

Like most other states in America, Arizona abides by standard fault laws where car crashes are concerned. This means that your Phoenix car accident attorney will have to prove fault before you will be able to file your claim. Liability for an accident can lie with one or even several parties depending on the cause.

Establishing the specific cause of your car accident is absolutely vital if you intend on filing an insurance claim for a car accident in Arizona. 

Motor vehicle collisions take place for a wide variety of reasons. Inattentive driving and other kinds of careless behavior result in drivers disregarding fundamental driving regulations and laws, causing them to blow through stoplights, drive dangerously fast, and even hit pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles.

Outside influences, such as rough weather, often cause driving conditions to become perilous, and result in a driver losing control of their car. In many instances, however, at its core, a vehicle crash is really caused by the malicious, reckless, or negligent behavior of another motorist.  

Distractions, combined with human error and basic negligence, have caused an increase in Arizona’s annual number of vehicle accidents and an increase in the number and severity of injuries they cause.
