As the year winds down, many people in Phoenix and the rest of the Valley may reflect on 2014 and be grateful for the good that happened in their lives. For some unlucky residents, a year end reflection may focus on negatives instead of positives. For the victims of car accidents Phoenix, this is often true as collisions leave behind mental and physical injuries. From needed medical treatment to missed wages while they are unable to work, the suffering endured by these victims can be extensive.
Suffering and damages incur the moment a crash takes place and can last for a long duration. While no action can magically erase these losses, victims can seek relief to help them recover financially. A settlement may enable you to provide for your family, obtain the medical help you need, and let you move beyond the crash if an accident has affected your life. Speaking with an injury lawyer who handles car accident cases may enable you to assess your options for help and may let you move forward with your claim.
Late last night, three vehicles collided in a violent impact near the intersection of 35th Avenue and Northern Avenue in Phoenix. Police and other emergency crews responded to the scene and assessed the victims of the crash. In the end, three people needed to be taken to area hospitals for treatment on their injuries which were not disclosed. The victims included two teenagers and a 4-year-old child.
The crash happened at approximately 10:30 p.m. and police have not yet revealed a suspected cause but they have launched an investigation where all potential issues will be analyzed, according to reports. The results of the investigation may determine whether any driver involved in the accident will receive a traffic citation or whether any criminal charges will be issued.
Any car accident is a stressful occurrence for those involved but it is worse when a child is injured. A parent has to not only deal with their own state but also try to make sure their son or daughter receives any help needed. Younger children may not be able to express the nature of their injuries or fully appreciate how hurt they are immediately following a collision.
Victims, whether adults or children, are entitled to seek help for their losses and relief for their injuries in the State of Arizona. Compensation can be available and can help ease the burden caused by a crash but the laws in Phoenix require this relief to be sought within a time frame prescribed by law. Victims who fail to act timely will lose the right to claim relief, regardless of how injured they were in a crash.
