- Texting While Driving Accident Claims
According to a study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the top cause of distracted driving is the use of a cell phone.
While portable devices like cell phones and hand held computers have generally made our lives much easier, unfortunately, many people use these devices during their daily commutes, or when running errands around town. As a result, the likelihood of being involved in a distracted driving car accident has increased significantly. In a supplementary survey that was also sponsored by the NHTSA it was noted that of the 6,000 drivers that were questioned, an overwhelming amount supported increased law enforcement efforts to curb aggressive driving – which included using photo evidence, greater fines, an increase in vehicle intervention by officers and also a push for greater public awareness of this problem.

In a study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, it was discovered that a driver who is texting while behind the wheel is 23 times more likely to be in a motor vehicle collision than other drivers.
Using a cell phone while behind the wheel is comparable to operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and contributes to approximately 18 percent of all auto accidents nationwide. Furthermore, 21 percent of annual fatal teenage car wrecks are also attributed to texting while driving and other cell phone usage.<

Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
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!!
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.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!

A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
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 .
