- Arizona Ranked Among Worst in Pedestrian Accidents
Arizona is a state where the climate and the beautiful landscape are made for traveling on foot. Anyone who has spent any time here understands that pedestrians are a regular sight, and it seems that steps have been taken to make Arizona pedestrian friendly. However, a recent study was released that led to negative news for the state, as it showed that Arizona pedestrian accidents occur at an alarmingly high rate, including those that are severe enough to require the help of Arizona pedestrian accident lawyers.
Attorneys for Arizona Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
Arizona’s rankings are negative in several respects, including:
- 17 percent of traffic fatalities in Arizona are non-motorists, and the national average is 13.9 percent
- 2.47 non-motorists out of every 100,000 residents have died in crashes during the past three years, 45th worst in the United States
- Arizona’s non-motorist fatalities have increased by 2.7 percent in the past three years while the rest of the country has seen its rate drop
There are many other statistics that do not paint a positive picture of traveling on foot in Arizona, but the point of the matter is that people who do so are encountering risks that in a statistical sense are greater than most other places around the United States.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional.
