- Man Killed in Tucson Motorcycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
There are many traffic laws in Arizona that must be remembered by motorists at any given time when they are behind the wheel. When any of these traffic laws are not obeyed, people can be injured or worse, and even those mistakes that seem slight in nature can be deadly. Tragically, it’s been alleged that one motorist failed to adhere to right-of-way norms recently, and this omission led to a Tucson motorcycle accident that took the life of a man who was hit in an intersection. Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
According to the authorities, this fatal Tucson motorcycle accident occurred at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Houghton Road and Valencia Road. An unidentified motorcyclist was approaching the intersection at that time when an unidentified woman who was driving a sedan was approaching the same location. The traffic light at the intersection turned yellow, and the motorcyclist attempted to proceed. At that point, the driver of the sedan turned in front of the motorcycle, and a collision ensued. The collision caused the sedan to overturn, and even though the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, he did not survive the crash.
Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
First, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the motorcyclist who was killed. Losing a life in such a random fashion is truly tragic, and we hope that those who were close to him are able to come together and work through their grief. In addition, this fatal Tucson motorcycle accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona motorcycle accidents. Every year, approximately 3,000 such crashes occur, leading to almost 2,500 injuries and to more than 120 fatalities.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
If the facts that are available are accurate and the driver of the sedan failed to yield the right-of-way to the motorcyclist, it’s possible that the family of the person who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit. If such a lawsuit is filed and is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and their loss of companionship.

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!!

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.
