- Man Killed by Truck in Tucson Motorcycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
One of the reasons that so many Arizona motorcycle accidents lead to serious injuries or worse is because those who are riding on motorcycles are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to protection from the environment around them. When a collision occurs, motorcyclists are often faced with a direct impact with the other vehicle and/or the pavement underneath them. That’s why it’s so important for motorists to use caution around motorcycles. While police have yet to decide whether to cite a truck driver, some sort of mistake was made that led to the death of a man in a Tucson motorcycle accident.
According to the authorities, this Tucson motorcycle accident occurred yesterday morning when 55-year-old Bennie Lee Jennings was driving his motorcycle near Miracle Mile and Flowing Wells. As he was proceeding down the road, the driver of a large truck pulled out in front of him, and a violent collision ensued. Mr. Jennings was rushed to a hospital where he fought for his life for several hours before succumbing to his injuries. Police have indicated that the motorcyclist was wearing his helmet and had the right-of-way, but they continue to investigate the situation.

Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
While more information from the investigation would be needed to make a definitive determination regarding fault in this fatal Tucson motorcycle accident, if it turns out that the truck driver was at fault it could lead to the filing of an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit by the man’s family against the truck driver. If the truck was commercial in nature and the truck driver was driving in the course of his employment, it could also lead to the employer being named as a defendant in the legal claim.
If you have lost someone you love in a crash, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for these tragic losses accountable for many years. Contact the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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 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!!
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
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.
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.
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 !!!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
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!
