- Suspected Christmas Morning Phoenix DUI Accident Kills One Pedestrian, Seriously Injures Another | Legal News | News Ticker
Pedestrians who cross the streets in Phoenix are always taking on some level of risk, particularly when doing so during the early morning hours. However, that does not excuse the conduct of a motorist who does not obey traffic laws, particularly if that motorist has been drinking. While it’s too early to know for sure based on available information, police suspect alcohol played a role in a fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident that occurred early on Christmas morning. Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
According to authorities, the latest suspected Phoenix DUI accident occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Saturday morning when two men, aged 52 and 53 respectively, were attempting to cross McDowell Road near 24th Street in Phoenix when they were struck by the driver of a Chevrolet SUV. The 34-year-old female driver’s vehicle subsequently veered out of control and smashed into a traffic light, coming to a halt. The unidentified 53-year-old man died at the scene, and the other unidentified pedestrian was listed in serious condition at a nearby hospital.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the men who were harmed in this incident. Losing a life in this manner is always tragic, particularly on Christmas morning, and no family should ever have to receive the news that these families are about to receive. We also hope that the injured pedestrian is able to overcome his injuries. In addition, this 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 deaths every month.
Arizona DUI Accident Lawyers
If it’s proved that the driver had alcohol in her system, she will likely face serious criminal charges. In addition, she could face an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of the pedestrian who was killed and an Arizona personal injury lawsuit filed by the pedestrian who was injured. If these claims are filed and are successful, they could lead to damages awards that compensate the plaintiffs for their losses, including medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and loss of companionship.

Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
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.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been a blessing from the beginning for me and I am extremely thankful to work for a firm that values their employees so much.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
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. ❤️
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
