Driving Under The Influence Fatality Statistics
Unfortunately, drivers under the influence cause thousands of unnecessary deaths each year. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, there were 5,489 alcohol-related vehicle crashes in 2010.
These accidents killed 223 people.
Families who have lost a loved one in an alcohol-related accident may have legal and financial recourse. It is important for the families of the victims of drunk driving accidents to have a skilled attorney handling their case.
Other financial suffering
Plaintiffs may also seek damages for pain and suffering and the loss of life quality.
The purpose of punitive damages is to punish the reckless driver and to provide some sort of award for the victim who has suffered from the drivers misconduct. Punitive damages are sometimes awarded if the driver had an extremely high blood alcohol content level.
Third Party Damages
When a victim is injured or killed in an alcohol-related collision, the driver may not be the only party held responsible for the wreck. Arizona law allows accident victims to name drinking establishments as a defendant in some cases. This is referred to as a Dram Shop Act. It is meant to hold drinking establishments responsible for serving individuals who have had too much to drink.

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!
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.

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
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!!
