- Australian Man Killed in Gruesome Phoenix Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Arizona welcomes tourists from all over the world every year. The state is home to many attractions, and its proximity to these attractions always keeps people coming. Unfortunately, not every visitor to the state leaves unscathed. Tragically, an Australian man paid the ultimate price for a mistake made by a driver last night as he was hit and immediately killed in a Phoenix pedestrian accident. The scene as described by police was nothing short of horrifying, and the man who was driving in the accident claims to have suffered from a medical condition.
According to police, the latest fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred last night at approximately 9 p.m. last night as the Diamondbacks game was ending. The person who was killed, a 29-year-old man of Australia, was crossing Camelback Avenue near the intersection with 7th Avenue on his way back to his hotel. The victim was in the country with a tour group of about 50 people. Suddenly a driver moving at an estimated 90 miles per hour in an SUV came speeding through the crosswalk and hit the victim. The SUV never hit the brakes, and continued on to hit other vehicles and a fence before coming to rest and bursting into flames. The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries.

In addition, this Phoenix pedestrian accident will also only add to the statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents overall. Every year, more than 1,500 Arizona pedestrian accidents occur, leading to nearly as many injuries and more than 150 fatalities.

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.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
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.

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.
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.
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.
