Car Emergency Items
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, in 2010 there were 106,177 motor vehicle crashes in Arizona. With this in mind, while it’s important to remember that car accidents are always unexpected, but it is even more important to be prepared in the event of collision.
By planning ahead and preparing for such an event, motorists can help to minimize the stress of an auto accident and perhaps even help someone in the process.
Due to the large expanses of open road in Arizona, it’s a wise choice for our drivers to keep emergency items in their glove compartment or trunk, so that in the event of a crash or an unexpected mechanical failure, they will have the proper materials to handle the situation.
Important Items to Carry In Your Car
The following items should always be kept in your vehicle at all times:
- Drivers license
- Auto insurance card
- Car registration
- Pen or pencil
Having these items within easy reach can help to save time during an accident, or if you should need to provide identification to a law enforcement officer or other government official while on our roads.
Helpful Items To Have Safely Stored In Your Vehicle
Being prepared for an unexpected situation is always a responsible thing to do. While it’s just not practical to try and cater to every situation that you may be confronted with on our roads, there are some simple items that may be useful if you are involved in an accident.
Some of these can include (but are not limited to):
- A set of cones, warning triangles or emergency flares to help alert traffic
- Jumper cables
- First aid kit
- Tire pump
- Cell phone
- Energy bars
- A list of important phone numbers (roadside assistance, AZ road conditions, highway patrol, etc.)
With many drivers often travelling long distances just to get to work, the vehicles they use for transportation can often be subjected to conditions that can create excessive wear and tear on important mechanical components.
By having some of these items stored in an easily-accessible location in your vehicle, you have a better chance of being prepared should you be involved in an auto collision, or break down in an inconvenient location (which can be in a city or rural area).

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
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!
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
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!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
