Am I Eligible to Pursue Legal Compensation?
Determining whether you have a valid case and can pursue compensation for your losses is a difficult task. Our legal team must first establish who is to blame for the pool accident.
In most pool accident cases, there are premise liability laws to consider. The property owner or entity that possesses the property may be held responsible for injuries sustained on the premise. For example, if a drowning accident occurred at a public pool, the property owner may be held liable for not providing proper safety equipment or having a lifeguard on duty.
In Arizona, facilities with pools must abide by certain safety protocols, such as:
- The pool must have a self-latching and self-closing entrance and be located at least 54 inches above the ground.
- The pool must be enclosed by a wall, fence or barrier of at least five feet high and must not be accessible from the outside of the pool.

PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
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.
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!
Sophia H is very helpful.
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.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
