- Rio Rico SUV Rollover Accident Could Be Due to Tire Failure | Legal News | News Ticker
SUV’s have long been top-selling vehicle models in the United States, as they generally present the best of both worlds to their drivers. These larger vehicles provide safety and utility along with the convenience of sedans. Unfortunately, SUV rollover accidents are extremely prevalent as well in the United States, and there are many reasons for these types of crashes. Tragically, another Arizona SUV rollover accident has claimed the life of a person and injured two others, although police have indicated that this incident could be due to tire failure.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Arizona SUV rollover accident occurred this afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Interstate 19 just south of the Rio Rico Drive exit. 30-year-old Ana Bertha Valenzuela was driving her SUV when she suddenly lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over as a result. 60-year-old Maria Dolores Apodaca of Rio Rico was a passenger in the vehicle, and she was thrown from it as a result of the crash. She was killed at the scene, and both the driver and her young son were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. Losing a life in such a random and violent manner is always a tragedy. In addition, this fatal Arizona SUV rollover accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences. Finally, SUV’s are more than 30 times more likely to roll over than other types of vehicles.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
In terms of potential liability, more investigation would need to be done in regards to the potential failure of the tire that may have led to the crash. If it turns out that the tire was defective or that it was not replaced when it should have been by a dealership, it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible for the tire being attached to the vehicle. A successfully filed claim could lead to an award of damages that would compensate the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and loss of companionship.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
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.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
