Phillips Recovers $450,000 for Rear-End Crash Victim
August 16, 2021
Our firm was able to secure $450,000 on behalf of the victim of a 2017 rear-end crash that happened in Paradise Valley.
The victim, Ms. Lamont was stopped for a red light.The defendant was traveling at 45 mph when he claimed to “blackout” and when he came to, the traffic in front of him had come to a stop.He attempted to stop his van but was unable to stop before crashing into the rear of the vehicle ahead of him.This caused a chain reaction of three rear-end collisions.
Ms. Lamont was in the vehicle that was the last to be hit from behind. She complained of neck and back pain immediately following the collision, and it only got worse in the following days. Because her vehicle sustained minimal damage and she had pre-existing back problems, the insurance company refused to acknowledge Ms. Lamont was severely injured.
However, Ms. Lamont received medical treatment for more than three years following the collision.A lawsuit was filed two years after the collision by Steven Jones on behalf of Ms. Lamont against the driver and his employer.Multiple experts were retained who confirmed what Mr. Jones and Ms. Lamont already knew -Ms. Lamont suffered serious injuries to her neck and back, which resulted in her inability to work or perform activities of daily life.
Finally, after four years of daily pain, continued medical treatment and mounting medical bills of more than $250,000, and the hard work by Mr. Jones, a settlement was reached at mediation for $450,000.00.

The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
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.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
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.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.

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.
