Injuries in Side Impact Collisions
Vehicle occupants in side impact collisions are susceptible to serious injuries due to the design of the vehicle. Passenger vehicles lack the space to absorb the energy and shield occupants in side impact crashes. It is not uncommon for vehicle occupants to sustain any of the following injuries from a side impact crash:
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Wrongful death
Typically, the passenger sitting at the point of impact will sustain severe injuries since they absorb the brunt of the force. Sometimes, when a car is hit at high speeds, the motor vehicle will flip over or spin out, causing it to hit other vehicles or objects.
Sadly, there were 754 traffic fatalities in Arizona during 2011. If your family member was killed in a traffic crash at no fault of their own, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
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!!
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 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 !!!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
