We are absolutely thrilled to see the Tucson, Arizona reports of decreased fatalities in Arizona car accidents. It may surprise people to know that experienced personal injury lawyers in Arizona who make their living helping people would be so happy to see such a report. However, it should not be surprising because anybody that helps people who suffer through the kinds of tragedies we see on a daily basis would give anything to see the unnecessary death end immediately.
According to reports, Arizona traffic accident fatalities were down from 1,071 in 2007 to only 920 in 2008. Yes, 920 deaths is a large number of people that were lost that should not have been. Undoubtedly, most of those deaths were preventable and were caused by the negligence of somebody that could have been avoided.
However, if we can see similar reductions year after year, we will eventually get to the place where car accidents in Tucson are not having a near-daily and devastating affect on the citizens. The same is true of car accidents in Phoenix and throughout the state. The fact that the number of accidents has gone down even a little bit is an encouraging sign.
For anyone who has lost a loved one in an Arizona car accident who may have any questions, we strongly encourage you to get in touch immediately with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Arizona car accident attorneys are best able to give honest answers to questions that anybody may have about what they can do following an accident.
The questions that arise after a tragic accident go beyond just the legal claims and it often takes an experienced hand of somebody not directly involved in the tragedy to help the family out. This does not mean that every family who has lost somebody in a car accident should or even can bring a lawsuit. It does mean that a family should be able to get answers to questions from an auto accident lawyer in Phoenix so that the best possible decision can be made during such a terrible time.
