- Loss of Limb Injury Claims in AZ
Each year, thousands of motor vehicle accidents occur throughout Arizona. Often, these accidents leave passenger occupants, bikers and pedestrians with injuries. At times, accident victims will lose a limb in these collisions.
When two vehicles crash into each other, the impact of the crash can be violent. The crash impact can cause occupants to suffer a loss of limb. Broken glass can cause the driver or passenger to lose a limb. During the crash, vehicle windows can shatter causing shards of glass to fly throughout the car. The glass can cut occupants and penetrate their nerves and arteries. When an individual’s limb has been severely injured, the limb may have to be amputated to keep the occupant from bleeding to death.
If you or a family member has lost a limb during a car accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. In Arizona, an accident victim may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages and property damage. Contact an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options.

Treatment for a Loss of Limb
If it is necessary for an individual’s limb to be amputated, a doctor will schedule the surgery. Depending on how severe the injury is, the surgery can be a simple operation or a complex one.
Once the surgery has been completed, the patient may need additional medical treatment and oversight. For example, an injury victim may have a prosthetic limb built for them. Prosthetic limbs allow accident victims more functionality.
Even if an injury victim does not receive a prosthetic limb, they will still likely need physical therapy to help to rebuild the strength in their limb. Additionally, occupational therapy may be prescribed to help patients re-learn ordinary tasks.
Sometimes accident victims who lose a limb may require therapy to handle the psychological impact of the vehicle crash. Many Arizona accident victims find that the emotional aftermath of an accident is difficult to do alone. Therefore, many passenger occupants involved in car crashes seek medical care to treat the following post-accident emotions:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Speaking with a medical professional may help accident victims to learn to manage with their new injury. Those who do seek this type of care find that they are may have a more optimal recovery.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash resulting in a loss of limb, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and any other associated costs. Phillips Law Group is prepared to help you to seek this compensation. Contact our Phoenix office to learn more.

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
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.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been a blessing from the beginning for me and I am extremely thankful to work for a firm that values their employees so much. Here I believe we are a huge family of hard working people that can bring a sense of comfort to our client’s lives in times of hardships, stress and chaos. From intake to Settlement we strive to provide the best customer care to all of our wonderful clients. With a 4.8 rating and over 1100+ star reviews on Google no surprise our firm is extremely well known for the quality of work we do!! #teamPLG!!
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!
