- 8-Year-Old Accidentally Run Over by Grandmother
An 8-year-old boy from Prescott, Arizona is in serious condition after being struck by his grandmothers vehicle just outside of her home. The boy had been swimming at his grandmothers pool that afternoon when he went to warm up on the sidewalk near the driveway.
The boys grandmother was leaving her home in her small two-door vehicle when she struck him while backing out of the driveway. According to authorities he was stuck between the hitch of the car and the concrete driveway. When his grandmother heard something she pulled the car forward and found the injured boy.
Police said he was rushed to a local area hospital and then airlifted to Phoenix Childrens Hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious head injury. The incident is being investigated as a normal accident and there was no indication that the grandmother was impaired.
Approximately 8 percent of all Arizona traffic incidents occur at 3:00p.m. which is the same time the young boy was hit. Approximately 67 children between the ages of 5 and 9 were injured in pedestrian collisions in 2011 according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
