    Car Crash Still the No.1 Cause of Injury in AZ, Says Scottsdale Lawyer

    ( -- December 3, 2013) Scottsdale, AZ -- December 2, 2013 – As Hollywood and the rest of the world grieves over the death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, seasoned Scottsdale accident lawyer Michael Nysather reminded road users of the gravity of car crash statistics in Arizona.

    “Car accidents are the no.1 cause of accidental death and injury in Arizona—and one of the highest in the country,” said Nysather, Personal Injury Lawyer of Wade & Nysather Law Office in Scottsdale.

    Citing the Arizona Department of Transportation’s statistics on motor vehicle accidents, Nysather stressed the need to be extra careful when driving in the state.

    “It’s so easy to let one’s guard down when driving in Arizona’s wide and mostly clear roads especially in the countryside,” said Nysather. “With over 700 fatalities and 33,000 injuries reported last year, the state’s over 100,000 accidents last year is far too many.”

    Nysather, a seasoned lawyer who handles personal injury claims for victims of motor vehicle accidents, occupational accidents, product and equipment failures, medical malpractice, as well as slips and falls, expressed sadness after learning of Paul Walker’s death in a car crash in California on Sunday, December 1st.

    “From what I read, he was just on the way back from a joyride after raising funds for a charity benefiting the victims of the super storm which hit the Philippines. The world is one good man less,” he said.

    He hopes that Walker’s untimely demise will not go for naught but instead raise people’s awareness and caution when driving.
