Auto Accident | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog
If you’re like most drivers, when you hit construction on your way to and from the office every day, you get frustrated. Your hands tightly grip the wheel, your heart rate goes up, and all you want to do is weave in and out of the cars stopped in front of you so you can get to your destination faster.

Driving requires your full attention. You need to be able to react quickly and appropriately when unexpected things happen on the road. If you’re distracted while driving, it’s impossible to respond quickly enough if another driver cuts you off or if a child runs out in front of your car. And those are just two examples of what can happen when you’re distracted while behind the wheel.
Intersections are places where two or more roads meet and when they have traffic lights, the lights are coordinated so that traffic flows smoothly without backing up. However, when one light fails, it can paralyze the entire intersection until the light is fixed. This means that when a traffic light failure occurs due to a power outage, road intersections become some of the most complex and vulnerable places for traffic accidents.
Food delivery services are on the rise in the United States, as it has become a convenient and stress-free option for busy individuals and families to cater their meals. Food delivery services work by people ordering food either through an app, online or via telephone, which is then picked up by a third party who collects the food from the restaurant and delivers it to your doorstep.
Ridesharing has become popular in Arizona and throughout the nation in recent years. It provides people with a convenient, cost-effective way to get around without driving. However, rideshare drivers can be involved in accidents the same as other drivers.
Safe drivers check their mirrors and get their cars serviced regularly to make sure their brakes and other safety equipment are working properly. They also drive defensively to protect themselves and their passengers from careless drivers who don’t always follow the rules. But even when you take all these safety precautions, you still may suffer injuries in an accident caused by unsafe road conditions.
As Arizona’s population grows, the number of annual deaths and injuries caused by traffic accidents continues to increase. In fact, 2021 was a deadly year on our roads and highways with over 98,000 crashes, that lead to over 26,000 injuries and almost 1,000 fatalities.
More people means more traffic. And since these new drivers aren’t always familiar with our roads, we can expect these unfortunate trends to continue to rise.
An auto accident, even if minor, is a shock. The crashing sound of impact, losing control of your vehicle, the fear of death, and the pain of an injury can leave you feeling powerless, fearful, and confused. However, when possible, taking photos after an auto accident can be critical to the outcome of an injury claim. Without photographic evidence, the at-fault driver and their insurance company may assert you were wholly or partially at fault in the accident. The photographic evidence tells the story of what occurred – and the more photos you have, the better.
School zone laws are designed to protect children commuting to and from school. Their safety should be our highest priority. It is important to be extra cautious and know what you need to do in school zones to avoid causing injury to children or others. School zones are zero-tolerance areas. Even a minor traffic offense, such as driving a mile per hour or two over the posted speed limit, could get you pulled over and cited. Traffic fines are doubled for violations that happen in school zones.
