- School Bus Accident in Phoenix Leads to Pedestrian Fatality
School buses transport thousands of children to and from school every day in the Phoenix area, and for the most part these trips go off without incident. Unfortunately, when something goes wrong it tends to go very wrong given the number of people in the area and the young ages of most of the passengers whose safety is dependant upon the skill and focus of the driver. Many of the problems that arise in these situations result in the need for help from a Phoenix bus accident lawyer. Tragically, something went wrong recently when a school bus hit and killed a young man in a Phoenix bus accident. If you or a family member has been injured in a bus accident contact the qualified personal injury attorneysnear you today for a free legal consultation.
Arizona Bus Accident Injuries and Deaths
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred on January 12 when an unidentified 18-year-old man was riding a city bus and got off of it at approximately 7:30 a.m. at 46th Street and Broadway Road. The man left the bus and circled behind it before attempting to cross the road. When he was doing so, he was hit by an oncoming school bus and was killed. There were several young students on the school bus who were between 5 and 7 years of age, but none of them were hurt and none of them appeared to see the crash.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man who was killed. This is truly a tragedy that perhaps could have been avoided. In addition, this fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents. Every year, more than 1,500 such crashes occur, leading to more than 1,400 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month somewhere in the state.
Phoenix Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit Attorneys
It seems that more facts would need to be revealed before any legal recommendation could be made. However, if it turns out that the school bus driver was at fault, it could give rise to the filing of an Arizona personal injury lawsuit against the school district after the required procedural steps are taken that involve filing a notice of claim with the local government. Situations like these could lead to awards of damages that compensate the family of the man who was killed for their losses.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
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.
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!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
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.
