According to the CTIA-The Wireless Association, there are over 330 million cellular devices in the United States. While the emergence of mobile phones has made our lives easier and more convenient, they can also be dangerous when used while operating a motor vehicle. The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report that the most common cause of distracted driving is cell phone use.
Distracted driving, especially texting and driving, is a huge problem in Arizona and throughout the rest of the country. In 2011, inattentive or distracted drivers caused over 3,000 injury crashes in the state, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an Arizona texting and driving accident, you may be eligible for legal and financial recourse. Contact an Arizona auto accident attorney today to learn about the legal rights available to injury victims.

Accidents Caused by Cell Phone Use
Researchers have found that using a cell phone while driving is as dangerous as driving while intoxicated. In 2010, over 3,000 people were killed in distraction-related crashes and another 415,000 were injured, according to the NHTSA. Teen drivers are more likely to be involved in fatal distracted driving accidents than any other age group.
Each year, distracted driving causes thousands of motor vehicle accidents. The Department of Transportation divides driver distractions into three types:
- Taking your mind off driving
- Taking your eyes off the road
- Taking your hands of the wheel
Drivers that are texting and driving are engaging in all three types of distracted driving. Texting and driving increases a drivers odds of being in a vehicle crash. Research conducted by VTTI found that sending or receiving a text message takes a drivers eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds, the equivalent of driving the length of a football field at 55mph.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Liz was great

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
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 .
