Phillips Recovers $450,000 for Rear-End Crash Victim
August 16, 2021
Our firm was able to secure $450,000 on behalf of the victim of a 2017 rear-end crash that happened in Paradise Valley.
The victim, Ms. Lamont was stopped for a red light.The defendant was traveling at 45 mph when he claimed to “blackout” and when he came to, the traffic in front of him had come to a stop.He attempted to stop his van but was unable to stop before crashing into the rear of the vehicle ahead of him.This caused a chain reaction of three rear-end collisions.
Ms. Lamont was in the vehicle that was the last to be hit from behind. She complained of neck and back pain immediately following the collision, and it only got worse in the following days. Because her vehicle sustained minimal damage and she had pre-existing back problems, the insurance company refused to acknowledge Ms. Lamont was severely injured.
However, Ms. Lamont received medical treatment for more than three years following the collision.A lawsuit was filed two years after the collision by Steven Jones on behalf of Ms. Lamont against the driver and his employer.Multiple experts were retained who confirmed what Mr. Jones and Ms. Lamont already knew -Ms. Lamont suffered serious injuries to her neck and back, which resulted in her inability to work or perform activities of daily life.
Finally, after four years of daily pain, continued medical treatment and mounting medical bills of more than $250,000, and the hard work by Mr. Jones, a settlement was reached at mediation for $450,000.00.

I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
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.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
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 .
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
