- Australian Man Killed in Gruesome Phoenix Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Arizona welcomes tourists from all over the world every year. The state is home to many attractions, and its proximity to these attractions always keeps people coming. Unfortunately, not every visitor to the state leaves unscathed. Tragically, an Australian man paid the ultimate price for a mistake made by a driver last night as he was hit and immediately killed in a Phoenix pedestrian accident. The scene as described by police was nothing short of horrifying, and the man who was driving in the accident claims to have suffered from a medical condition.
According to police, the latest fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred last night at approximately 9 p.m. last night as the Diamondbacks game was ending. The person who was killed, a 29-year-old man of Australia, was crossing Camelback Avenue near the intersection with 7th Avenue on his way back to his hotel. The victim was in the country with a tour group of about 50 people. Suddenly a driver moving at an estimated 90 miles per hour in an SUV came speeding through the crosswalk and hit the victim. The SUV never hit the brakes, and continued on to hit other vehicles and a fence before coming to rest and bursting into flames. The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First, we’d like to extend our condolences to the family of the victim. This is the sort of news from far away that no one should ever have to receive, and we hope that the family is able to somehow overcome the grief and sorrow that will certainly follow. In addition, this Phoenix pedestrian accident will also only add to the statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents overall. Every year, more than 1,500 Arizona pedestrian accidents occur, leading to nearly as many injuries and more than 150 fatalities.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
Even though the victim was a citizen of Australia, he still has legal rights in Arizona because he was harmed here. If the family decides to file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit, it’s possible that they could recover damages for funeral, medical and burial expenses as well as damages for loss of income, loss of companionship, emotional distress and other forms of compensation.

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
