- 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.

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.
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.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.

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.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
