- Update: Arizona Tour Bus Accident Was Carrying Chinese Tourists, Highlighting Legal Rights Issues for Visitors | Legal News | News Ticker
We posted yesterday about a fatal Arizona tour bus accident that led to the deaths of two people and to serious injuries for eight other travelers. As more information becomes available, we have learned that those who were riding in the bus were Chinese tourists. The passengers have had an opportunity to provide statements and witness accounts of this horrifying crash, and the situation brings to light the issue of how foreign visitors can enforce legal rights when they are injured in Arizona.
The fatal Arizona bus accident in question occurred on Sunday morning at approximately 8 a.m. when a tour bus was headed towards the Grand Canyon after beginning its journey in Las Vegas. Suddenly, as the bus traveled along Pierce Ferry Road near milepost 23, the bus drifted off the road and rolled over several times. People were violently thrown about in the passenger cabin, and the bus ultimately came to rest along the shoulder of the road. The driver of the bus suffered minor injuries, as he was wearing a seat belt.
Arizona Traffic Accident Statistics
We hope that those who have lost loved ones have been informed of this tragedy in China at this point so that they can do what needs to be done, and we also hope that those eight people who were seriously injured are able to recover. This fatal Arizona bus accident will only add to the overall statistics regarding Arizona traffic accidents. Every year, approximately 65,000 people are injured and another 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences, and those numbers have held steady for several years.

One question that’s bound to be asked is whether the people who were injured or killed in this crash have legal rights given their country of origin. The simple answers to that question is that yes, they do have the same legal rights as anyone else in this situation. Anyone who is injured or killed in Arizona because of negligence has the right to attempt to hold those responsible for these tragedies accountable, and doing so is a process that’s manageable if those who seek to obtain justice secure the proper help.

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 .

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!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
