- Teens Likely to be Involved in Accidents During Summer
Memorial Day kicked off what the National Safety Council calls the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers, which is a period of time in which the most fatal teen driving accidents occur.
From Memorial through Labor Day, teens are much more likely to be behind the wheel, which puts them in greater danger.
At Phillips Law Group, we have experience handling personal injury claims and can help if you have been injured in an accident involving a teen driver.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during summer 2012, nearly 1,000 people were killed in automotive accidents involving teen drivers. More than half of the victims were teens.
Although being out of school is the primary reason why teens are more likely to be on the road, many are also driving more frequently than before. Additionally, some teens may be venturing out to new destinations and more likely to be driving with friends in the vehicle.
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention note that teens are more likely to be involved in car crashes when there are more passengers in the vehicle. It is also the reason that many states have limitations on whom teen drivers may carry as passengers in their vehicle.
Passengers increase the risk of a teen driver being involved in a fatal crash by approximately 44 percent, according to the National Safety Council. Horseplay, loud conversations and cellphone use can often distract a teen driver.
It is very important that parents talk to their teens about safe driving habits and the risks of distracted driving.
At Phillips Law Group, our accident lawyers believe in obtaining justice on behalf of those who have been injured as a result of a careless driver. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car wreck, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and more.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
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.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
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.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
