- Gilbert Pedestrians & Cyclists to Get More Crosswalks
Residents who use the Gilbert trail system to get around will have more crosswalks available to them within the next few years. In mid-June the Gilbert Town Council voted to accept a $750,000 federal grant in addition to the towns own $50,000 funding in the year 2014.
Officials will be adding four mid-block crossing points along the public trail system which already has about 11 crossings. Town officials will have to follow a federal approval process for the project before construction can begin; the process can take as long as 16 months. Therefore, construction will likely not begin on these crossings until 2015.
Currently the crossings are planned for:
- Baseline Road at the Consolidated Canal, between Lindsay Road and Val Vista Drive & Eastern Canal, between Greenfield & Higley Road.
- Guadalupe Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
- Elliot Road, between Val Vista Drive and Greenfield Road.
According to a town staff report, signals at the crossings will remain dark until activated by a pedestrian and will then flash yellow and turn red to allow for safer crossing. In Arizona more than 3,400 pedestrian and pedacyclist collisions were reported in 2011. Furthermore, of these accidents 5% were fatal.
If you or a loved one were harmed during a pedestrian or pedacyclist accident, contact an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney to find out if you may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

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 !!!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
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.
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!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
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!
Liz was great
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.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
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.
