- Monostable Gear Shift SUV Roll Away Injuries
Phillips Law Group is now investigating claims that certain models of vehicles with the “Monostable” gear shift found on select Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge vehicles can roll away and cause injuries or damage to the vehicle, even though the driver believes he has placed the shifter in the “park” position.
The affected models and production years of vehicles are the 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2012-2014 Chrysler 300, and the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger. These vehicles can roll away when the driver believes the vehicle is in park, resulting in both injuries and damage to the vehicles themselves. Most recently, actor Anton Yelchin’s 2015 SUV rolled away down an embankment, trapping him between the vehicle and a brick pillar and a metal security gate and suffocating him. Although this is the most recent and highly publicized tragedy, these rollaways have reportedly caused hundreds of crashes with dozens of injuries.
The problem with the gear shift in these vehicles is that, unlike a traditional gear shift, it returns to the same position after each driver input. So with this confusing electronic gearshift, there is no unique physical position for neutral, park, or drive. The only indication of the shifter position is a light that changes from D to P. In addition to poor visual feedback to the driver, there are also reports that the shifter moved from park to neutral independent of the driver’s input on the shifter. These issues have led Fiat Chrysler to initiate a voluntary recall of 1.1 million cars worldwide equipped with the defectively designed shifter.

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 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’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!
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
