Phoenix May Have the Deadliest Roads in Arizona

The Relentless Pursuit of Justice

The city of Phoenix, Arizona has some of the deadliest roads in the entire state. A study looked at the number of accidents and where they occurred. The researchers found that Arizona had a total of 33 roads with the highest death tolls in the state. Since cities are densely populated and have a lot of traffic, it’s no wonder why Phoenix would be on the list.

Out of the 1,222 fatalities on Phoenix roads, 48 percent were due to drunk drivers. There are several roads in Phoenix that really caught the study’s attention due to how high the death count is:

  • State Route 101 has an estimated 4 deaths per mile
  • Interstate 10: Between Litchfield Park and Sun Lakes, there have been a total of 64 fatalities. It is the deadliest stretch of road in Arizona thus far.
  • Interstate 17: near West Bell Road, this four mile stretch had the highest number of drunk driving fatalities in the state.

What Can I Do About This?

If you will be driving these dangerous roads, exercise caution and stay alert to the changing traffic around you. Do not participate in dangerous driving habits such as driving while under the influence, texting while driving, or driving while fatigued. Defensive driving strategies could help you navigate through dangerous traffic scenarios or minimize the risk of getting into an accident. If you are in a car accident and are injured, you can potentially file a personal injury case to get compensated for your injuries. Injuries can include scrapes, burns, broken bones, or amputated limbs.

To ensure you are compensated appropriately, make sure to contact an experienced car accident or personal injury lawyer to look over your case. The attorneys at the Goldwater Law Firm have years of experience handling car accident cases and helping their clients get the compensation they deserve. Schedule a consultation today and we’ll work to help you get your medical costs covered.

If you are a driver and have driven someone’s car you probably thought what would happen if I got into an accident. Accidents can happen unexpectedly, and many incidents you won’t be able to react and avoid the collision. Here is some information that you may find useful before you get into the seat of a potentially new vehicle.

Dealership Coverage

If you are looking to buy a new car from a dealership, the dealer will usually have an insurance policy for all vehicles on the lot. If an accident happens that is not your fault, the dealerships insurance will cover the damage.

If the car accident is your fault, the dealer will attempt to hold you accountable. If this happens, your insurance company can cover the damage or prove that the accident was not your fault. Many dealerships treat test drive accidents like rental car accidents.

Also if there is an accident due to a faulty vehicle, the dealership will have their insurance cover vehicle damages and compensation for any injuries.

If you have been in a test drive accident and are injured, speak to an experienced personal injury attorney at Goldwater Law Firm, P.C.

According to the National Safety Council, traffic accidents that caused a fatal injury rose 14% and personal injuries increased by a third across the nation in the first six months of this year.

Deborah A.P. Hersman, council president, said cheap gas prices and a healthier economy may have contributed to Americans spending extra time on the highway. However, this does not entirely explain the rise in fatalities and injuries.

Roughly 19,000 people were killed in traffic accidents through the month of June. This figure does not include data from July and August, which are extremely high months for fatalities. Hersman states that these developments began in the last quarter of 2014.

More states are increasing speed limits and many drivers are distracted by cell phones and texting. The National Safety Council determined in a spring report that 25% of all crashes involve the use of a cell phone.
