Tourism is alive and kicking in Phoenix, Arizona.
Our sports teams attract out-of-towners in droves. With the Phoenix Zoo and many performing arts centers in downtown, Phoenix is a fun place to live and work.
But it is not a fun place to get in a car accident.
Whether you’re on a morning commute to your downtown office, or enjoying a weekend bike ride in our local parks on a sunny day, getting in an auto accident can disrupt much more than your plans for the day.
As one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., Phoenix traffic has been getting worse, as you’ve undoubtedly experienced this in your own commutes. As traffic increases, the chances of an accident also increase. They can be life-altering when if and they do happen.
The good news is there are many convenient resources near your home to help get you back on your feet quickly without breaking the bank.
We donate car seats to families with children every time we settle an auto accident case. We want to make sure every mother leaves the Chandler Regional Hospital safely with her newborn baby.
