- 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.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
