Monostable Gear Shift SUV Roll Away Injuries
Phillips Law Group is now investigating claims that certain models of vehicles with the “Monostable” gear shift found on select Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge vehicles can roll away and cause injuries or damage to the vehicle, even though the driver believes he has placed the shifter in the “park” position.
The affected models and production years of vehicles are the 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2012-2014 Chrysler 300, and the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger. These vehicles can roll away when the driver believes the vehicle is in park, resulting in both injuries and damage to the vehicles themselves. Most recently, actor Anton Yelchin’s 2015 SUV rolled away down an embankment, trapping him between the vehicle and a brick pillar and a metal security gate and suffocating him. Although this is the most recent and highly publicized tragedy, these rollaways have reportedly caused hundreds of crashes with dozens of injuries.
The problem with the gear shift in these vehicles is that, unlike a traditional gear shift, it returns to the same position after each driver input. So with this confusing electronic gearshift, there is no unique physical position for neutral, park, or drive. The only indication of the shifter position is a light that changes from D to P. In addition to poor visual feedback to the driver, there are also reports that the shifter moved from park to neutral independent of the driver’s input on the shifter. These issues have led Fiat Chrysler to initiate a voluntary recall of 1.1 million cars worldwide equipped with the defectively designed shifter.

Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
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.
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!
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.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
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 .
