- AZDOT Prepares for Monsoon Season
Monsoon season is here, and this year, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) wants to be prepared after last years disastrous season.
In 2014, a record breaking 3.29 inches of rain fell in Phoenix in one day. It was considered the wettest day on record since 1895. On average, rainfall during the entire monsoon season is 2.71 inches.
Dozens of people were injured during monsoon season in automobile and personal injury accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt as a result of another individuals negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Arizona DOT Preparations
One of the main hazards associated with monsoon season is flooding, specifically flash flooding. Rainfall during monsoon season is heavy and does not soak into the ground easily, which leads to large amounts of flooding.
The Phoenix Streets Department has been working to trim trees and secure equipment should a sudden storm arise. Last years storms made the Streets Department realize that having signs and equipment stored in different areas of the city would be helpful. Additionally, new equipment will make it easier and quicker to build makeshift dams along roadways to keep the water out.
If a driver encounters a light that has gone out during a storm, the intersection should be treated like a four-way stop while the light is out.
Drivers are also being encouraged to Pull Aside, Stay Alive, a campaign focusing on dust storms. During monsoon season, drivers are much more likely to suddenly be caught in a dust storm. The ADOT encourages drivers to pull over, turn off all vehicle lights, set the emergency brake, and stay in the vehicle with a seatbelt on until the storm passes.
If you or someone you love is injured in a wreck this monsoon season, contact the car accident lawyers with the experience you need to fight for your rights.

Phillips law group is the best around!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
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.
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.
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 .
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.
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’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
