Accidents and Insurance
Car Accidents and the Insurance Adjuster
If you are one of the thousands of people in Arizona who have been involved in a car accident in any given year, one of the first people youll hear from in the aftermath of the collision is an insurance adjuster. The job of the insurance adjuster is to come to a numerical figure for a settlement for any claims you file in response to the accident.
While it may seem tempting to simply work with the adjuster on the promise that you will receive your settlement funds quickly, you need to resist this temptation. Insurance adjusters work for insurance companies, and one of their foundational duties is to limit the amount of liability that their employers pay to policy holders or others who have been harmed by their policy holders.
Therefore, you need to politely refuse to discuss the specifics of your auto accident with an insurance adjuster until you have an opportunity to speak to an Arizona accident lawyer. If you decide to retain an Arizona accident attorney, you will be able to simply refer the insurance adjuster to your attorney from that point forward so that all of the negotiation is handled for you.

Truck Accidents and the Insurance Adjuster
Truck accidents are a part of life in Arizona, and when they occur, they often leave behind a scene thats nothing short of a disaster. These large vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and when they collide with smaller vehicles at a high rate of speed it will almost always create the need for insurance claims to be settled.
If this has happened to you, then you understand how one of the first steps taken involves filing a claim with the relevant insurance company. Soon after a claim is filed, youll be hearing from an insurance adjuster who will tell you that his or her job is to help come to a settlement figure thats fair for everyone involved.
Before you offer the insurance adjuster a statement, however, you need to remember that insurance adjusters work for insurance companies, and their main mission is generally to limit the amount of financial exposure faced by their employers. You should also keep in mind that you are not required to provide a statement to the insurance adjuster.
Instead, you should speak to and hire an Arizona truck accident lawyer in order to make sure that your rights are properly protected and enforced. Contact the Arizona truck accident lawyers at the law firm of Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation, as doing so will provide you with a better opportunity to secure a fair and equitable settlement.
Motorcycle Accidents and the Insurance Adjuster
Motorcycle accidents occur in Arizona with alarming regularity, and the majority of these occurrences lead to property damage and injuries. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you will likely soon hear from a representative of an insurance company whose title is that of adjuster.
An insurance adjuster is someone whose job is to come to a settlement figure for claims that are filed with the insurance company that employs the adjuster. While this person may tell you that all you need to do is answer a few questions in regards to the incident in order to bring about a payment for your damages, you need to keep in mind that this persons job is also to limit the financial liability faced by his employer as much as possible.
In short, the answers you provide to an insurance adjuster may not necessarily strengthen your position, and could actually harm your overall efforts to obtain a fair and equitable settlement for the damages youve suffered. You should also understand that you are not required by law to speak to an insurance adjuster, and you would be well-advised to instead speak to an Arizona motorcycle accident lawyer before you talk to anyone else. Taking this step could preserve your legal rights and help to maximize your settlement.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
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.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
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 .
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.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been a blessing from the beginning for me and I am extremely thankful to work for a firm that values their employees so much. Here I believe we are a huge family of hard working people that can bring a sense of comfort to our client’s lives in times of hardships, stress and chaos. From intake to Settlement we strive to provide the best customer care to all of our wonderful clients. With a 4.8 rating and over 1100+ star reviews on Google no surprise our firm is extremely well known for the quality of work we do!! #teamPLG!!
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.
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.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Liz was great
