- Woman Killed, Man Critically Injured in Phoenix Motorcycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Motorcycles have become more popular in the area in recent years for many reasons, and that means that drivers of larger vehicles have needed to become more aware of those who choose to travel on two wheels as they make their way around the city. The reason is that if a collision between a motorcycle and a larger vehicle occurs, anyone riding on the motorcycle is obviously at a dangerous disadvantage. Tragically, a woman was killed and her passenger was critically injured in a Phoenix motorcycle accident over the weekend, and early indications are that the driver of the other vehicle may not have yielded the right-of-way.
According to authorities, this fatal Phoenix motorcycle accident occurred on Saturday at approximately 5 p.m. at the intersection of Bell Road and 43rd Avenue. 55-year-old Kimberly Chapman was driving her motorcycle with an unidentified 60-year-old passenger. Ms. Chapman was moving in an eastbound direction on Bell Road when she entered the intersection. At that point, an SUV being driven by an unidentified 22-year-old man failed to yield and attempted a left turn in front of the motorcycle, leading to the crash.
Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. We also hope that the man who was critically injured is able to survive the harm he has suffered. In addition, this tragic Phoenix motorcycle accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona motorcycle accidents. Every year in the state, 3,000 such crashes occur, and they lead to 2,500 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month.
Phoenix Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
If the available facts are accurate and this fatal Phoenix motorcycle accident was caused by the failure to yield, it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the SUV driver. It’s also possible for the injured passenger to file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit. However, reports indicate that neither person on the motorcycle was wearing a helmet, which could lead to an analysis of damages due to them under Arizona’s comparative negligence standard.
If you or someone you love has been harmed in a crash, you need to seek the help of Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyers who have been holding those responsible for this type of harm accountable for many years. Contact the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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.
Phillips law group is the best around!

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.
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!
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!!

He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
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.
