An accident on I-8 in Arizona can turn your life upside down
Interstate 8 in Arizona travels through some of the more remote areas of Arizona. But that doesn't mean that accidents don't happen here. And when they do, an accident on I-8 can sometimes be severe since they sometimes involve large trucks traveling on this major highway connecting Arizona and California.
I-8 cuts through three counties in Arizona: Yuma, Maricopa and Pinal. In 2011, traffic fatalities claimed the lives of 330 people in Maricopa, 78 people in Pinal and 22 people in Yuma, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Statewide, nearly half of all single vehicle accidents occur on rural roads. Specifically, 8,561 accidents - or 45.9 percent - of all single-vehicle accidents occurred on rural roads in Arizona in 2011.
How to get compensation for your I-8 accident
If you've had an accident on I-8 in one of these more rural areas, you know how hard it can be sometimes to get immediate medical treatment or other emergency services. And if the accident involved a truck on I-8, getting compensated for your injuries can sometimes be difficult since the trucking company may be located in another state and the driver could even be from a third state.
