3 of the Worst Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019 We’ve Seen in Phoenix

Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019: US-93 is listed as the most dangerous highway in the country

Let’s start with our highways- according to consumer site Value Penguin, Arizona has the worst highway in the country for accidents, the US-93 highway to be precise. This is the road that goes from Phoenix to Las Vegas and, according to the data, has the most fatalities than any other road in America with 90 fatalities being recorded between 2010 and 2016! Due to a number of factors, including how deserted many parts of the highway are and how fast people drive, the road has become notorious for some pretty awful Arizona vehicular accident 2019.

Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019: DUI Dad tragically kills his own son Dec 2019

Driving under the influence is sadly a common cause of Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019, and in December 2019 a car accident that was caused by a DUI driver ended in total tragedy as the child in the car died. The dad who was driving at the time, jumped a curb before hitting a traffic post killing his son at the scene. Police arrested the driver and found him to be driving under the influence of alcohol.

Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019: Police warn about distracted driving after two teens die in separate incidents.

We’ve previously covered distracted drivers and their impact on accident figures, but in November 2019, tragedy struck not once but twice as a direct result of drivers being distracted by smart devices in their cars. On 15 November, in Peoria, a 14-year-old boy was struck and tragically killed by a vehicle as he was in a crosswalk and crossing the street near Peoria High School. Heartbreakingly, on the same day, a few hours later, a 13-year-old Payton Munger was struck by a school bus at the intersection of 144th Avenue and Indian School Road. Both cases are still ongoing but the Sheriff involved released a sobering statement about drivers becoming distracted behind the wheel.

Arizona Vehicular Accident 2019: The child records her own mother drink-driving.

A rather more positive ending to a drink-driving story was that of a 10-year-old girl from Glendale filming her own mother getting behind the wheel of her car under the influence of alcohol before then calling 911 to report her. Her quick-thinking move ensured that any DUI accident was luckily prevented as the Police were able to stop the vehicle and later arrested the mother for DUI.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
