Yuma, AZ Catastrophic Injury Attorney | Phillips Law Group
Some accidents are so dangerous they lead to life-altering injuries that may require a long recovery, or that may never fully heal. The physical toll from these injuries is considerable, but the emotional toll on the victim and his or her family can also be significant.

At Phillips Law Group, our trusted legal team has recovered millions in compensation for those who suffered catastrophic injuries. This includes a $7.65 million settlement for a victim of a traumatic brain injury and $3.1 million for a car accident victim with a broken neck. We have been fighting for the rights of injury victims for more than 27 years.
Discussing your claim with a licensed Yuma catastrophic injury lawyer is an important step to take. The consultation with an attorney from Phillips Law Group is free of charge and comes with no obligation to take legal action. There is no upfront cost to you if we take on your case.

How Do I Know if I Have a Case?
Most catastrophic injury cases require the victim to prove his or her injuries were the result of another party’s negligence.
The legal theory of negligence includes four elements your attorney must establish to be able to seek compensation for an injury:
- Duty of care ”“ There must have been a legal obligation for the at-fault party to act with care to prevent others from suffering an injury.
- Breach of duty of care ”“ If the duty of care was not upheld, the at-fault party may be held accountable for the injuries or losses that resulted. While a breach of duty of care is often breached by a party’s actions, sometimes the duty is breached by a failure to act.
- Linking the injury with the duty of care ”“ It must be proven that the injury would not have occurred had the defendant upheld the duty of care.
- Injury damages ”“ Your lawyer must also prove your injuries resulted in physical, financial or emotional damages.
It is difficult to determine if you may have a case without talking to a trusted Yuma catastrophic injury attorney about the details of your injury.

I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
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.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
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.
Phillips Law Group provides a collaborative environment in which both attorneys and staff work together to achieve the best outcome for clients.

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 !!!
