Arizona Pedestrian Accident Fatalities and Injuries
According to authorities, this fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred on Friday near 7th Street and Vogel. An unidentified woman in her 50’s was attempting to cross 7th Street when she was hit by a vehicle that was moving in a southbound direction. Initial reports indicate that she was attempting this crossing mid-block and not inside of a crosswalk. The names of those involved with this accident have not been released, nor have the specific details regarding what led to the crash.
First and foremost, we’d like to express our condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. She clearly overcame many challenges in her life only to have it end suddenly, violently and tragically. 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 somewhere in the state, and these crashes lead to more than 1,400 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month.
Attorneys for Phoenix Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits
If it turns out that the woman was crossing in the middle of the block, it’s still possible for the family of the woman who was killed to file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit. If such a lawsuit is filed by the family and it’s successful, they could be awarded damages that compensate them for their medical and funeral costs as well as their lost income and loss of companionship. However, the situation would likely be analyzed in accordance with Arizona’s standards of comparative negligence, which assigns a percentage of fault to each party when it’s possible that both were negligent in an accident scenario.

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.
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 .

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.
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.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
