- Woman Killed in Phoenix Bicycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Riding a bicycle at night is always an activity that involves risk, particularly if a person is riding a recumbent bicycle that sits lower to the ground. However, that doesn’t mean that those who choose this form of transportation don’t have legal rights. Tragically, it’s possible that someone’s legal rights were violated when a woman was killed while riding this type of vehicle last night in a Phoenix bicycle accident. Police have not released the name of the victim, and they are continuing to investigate the situation.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix bicycle accident occurred last night near 25th Avenue and Dunlap Avenue. A woman who was approximately 50 years old was riding her motorized recumbent bicycle on Dunlap Avenue when a motorist came up from behind and attempted to turn right from Dunlap Avenue onto 25th Avenue. The unidentified motorist then collided with the bicycle as the turn was attempted, and the bicyclist was killed. Police have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash.

Every year, almost 2,000 such crashes occur, leading to nearly 1,700 injuries and to more than a dozen deaths
Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyers
While more information would be necessary to provide a complete legal analysis of this type of situation, if it turns out that the motorist was negligent in turning into the bicycle, it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit. If such a lawsuit is filed and is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their loss of income and their loss of companionship.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
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.
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 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 .
