- Report: Number of Fatal AZ Car Accidents Down in 2014
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) released some good news for drivers Monday: The number of fatalities from car accidents across the state decreased by nine percent in 2014.
While it is encouraging to see that the number of fatalities has decreased, 774 people lost their lives in auto accidents last year. Furthermore, the total number of auto accidents actually increased two percent from 107,477 in 2013 to 109,554 in 2014.
ADOT continues to place emphasis on the importance of driver safety while on the roads. If you do become injured in a car crash, the Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Phillips Law Group can help you recover the full damages for your injuries. Call 1-800-706-3000 for a free consultation.
The departments 2014 Arizona Motor Vehicle Crash Facts, detailed some of the most common types of accidents within the state.
- Alcohol-related fatalities decreased by six percent last year. While this type of accident has been on a downward trend over the last couple of years, alcohol still accounted for 34 percent of all fatal accidents in Arizona in 2014.
- There were fewer deaths from motorcycle accidents for both drivers and passengers.
- The report showed that 28 bicyclist were killed last year, compared to 29 in 2013 and 18 in 2012.
- In a state where someone is killed in an auto accident every 11.33 hours, 34 percent of those deaths could have been prevented if the people had been wearing safety devices like seat belts and helmets.
Though driving is an activity that most of us do on a regular basis, reports like this continue to drive home the point that automobiles account for a large number of injuries and deaths every year.

Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
