Car accidents happen every single day and even a seemingly minor car accident is capable of causing severe injuries and damages. That is why Arizona law requires that if you have been involved in an accident where any damages and injuries were sustained, you must remain at the scene. If nobody has sustained serious injuries, and you are able, you need to pull your vehicle to the side of the road in order to render aid, exchange contact information and contact the police to file a report.
In cases where the other driver has valid auto insurance, it could be a far more simple case of filing a claim for the damages and injuries caused during the accident. The requires drivers to carry a minimum of $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident for bodily injuries and $10,000 per accident in property damages.
