A Phoenix Car Accident Lawyer You Can Trust
If you or someone you know sustains serious injuries from a motor vehicle accident, it can be devastating. They may have brain and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, paralysis, loss of limbs, permanent disability, or even been killed in the accident.
In many cases, the victim of the accident is unable to work due to their injuries and incurred high medical bills without the financial ability to pay them. The situation is further complicated by complex Arizona insurance and lien laws favoring insurance companies and hospitals and doctors providing the medical care. Insurance companies are in the business to make money and will make every effort to pay victims of motor vehicle accidents as little as possible.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – This old saying is still true today
Residents and those new to Phoenix and the surrounding area need to understand what to expect from their busy city. In 2016, Maricopa County experienced over 92,000 vehicle crashes. Motor vehicle accidents can involve even the safest drivers.

What can I do to become more educated regarding my city, state, and county?
An important step to accident prevention is to know the accident statistics in your area and understand the metrics behind them. Car accidents happen for a variety of reasons, however, there are some reoccurring features of a majority of them. Pay attention to the traffic in your area. Keep a closer eye on your route and note any hazards during specific time periods of travel. If these incidents repeat often, you can avoid the areas and periods of time with a higher incident rate. For example, lunch hour traffic is high. As people are hurrying to and from lunch during work hours, they tend to rush and pay less attention, resulting in unnecessary accidents. Knowing this, you can be more mindful during these periods and, hopefully, avoid having an accident.
