- Fourth of July & Deadly Car Accidents
With more than 41 million Americans expected to travel 50 miles or more from their homes between July 1 and July 5, 2015, this could be the deadliest Fourth of July weekend we have seen in years.
According to AAA, while these estimates include all modes of travel, a large number of families will travel to their destinations via car. Unfortunately, congested roads mean the potential for more deadly accidents.
To steer clear of danger, drivers and passengers are urged to wear their seatbelts, follow speed limits and avoid distracted driving.
According to recently released data from the National Coalition for Safer Roads, there are more red light runners on summer holiday weekends than at any other time. According to research, nearly four million drivers ran a red light in 2014.
Another area of concern during the holidays is drinking and driving. Officials say about 40 percent of the fatalities that occur over this holiday weekend can be attributed to intoxicated drivers. As a result, authorities will be out in force setting up sobriety checkpoints.
If alcohol is a part of your celebration plans this weekend remember to use common sense and designate a driver if you are partying away from home.

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!!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.

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.

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