Arizona car accidents and what to do

When people are involved in a car accident, they may be so traumatized that it is difficult for them to think about what to do. It is very important that people take certain steps after an accident in order to protect themselves and to preserve their claim against the negligent driver who caused it.

Impaired driving accidents in Arizona

Recent statistics continue to suggest that alcohol use can drastically increase a driver's risk of becoming involved in a car accident. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation's 2013 statistics, there are 107,348 car accidents a year in Arizona. Of those accidents, 777 of them result in a fatality and 34,047 results in an injury. Alcohol impaired accidents account for about 10 percent of those accidents and 32 percent of the fatalities.

Collision avoidance technology for safer roads

As Arizona drivers know, many factors can lead to a dangerous or even deadly highway accident. Even if a driver is highly skilled, unexpected maneuvers by other drivers or sudden changes in vehicle handling can lead to a collision. The driver may be incapable of avoiding such an accident in the moment, but new automotive technology could compensate for such situations and minimize the risks involved.

The remaining vehicles received either a “fair” or “marginal” rating when it came to protecting passengers in a gauntlet of tests.
