- Father, Son Injured in Arizona Car Accident Because of Texting Behind the Wheel | Legal News | News Ticker
At this point, most people understand that sending and reading text messages while driving is an extremely dangerous practice. Unfortunately, understanding this reality and adhering to responsible practices in response to this knowledge are two different things. Sadly, this reality was reinforced yesterday when a man and his son were injured in a single-vehicle Arizona car accident when the texting driver did not notice that he was about to collide with an oncoming train.
This Arizona car accident occurred yesterday at approximately 12:30 p.m. in Pinal County. The driver, 30-year-old Jason Michael Hair was driving his Pontiac with his four-year-old son in a child seat in the back in a westbound direction on Arizona Farms Road near Queen Creek. A witness who had previously been passed by Mr. Hair stated that the driver was sending text messages while he was driving. As a result, he did not see the oncoming railroad crossing until it was too late even though the lights were blinking and the guard rails were down. His vehicle collided with the train and flipped on its side. Both people had to be extricated from the vehicle by rescue workers. Mr. Hair suffered a head injury, and his son was also taken to a hospital as a precaution.

First, we’d like to express our relief that no one was killed in this accident, and we hope that the injuries suffered are soon a thing of the past. We’re also glad to know that the driver was wearing a seat belt and that the little boy was properly secured in the back seat, as these measures may have saved both of their lives. In addition, this Arizona car accident will now become part of the overall statistical body in regards to these occurrences. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these collisions.

This situation only reinforces the fact that texting while driving is not only extremely dangerous, but can be deadly. According to the American Automobile Association, or AAA, the chances of being involved in an accident rise by a factor of 50 percent when someone is focusing on a hand-held device in this manner as opposed to concentrating on the road. Distracted driving has historically been a leading cause of accidents.

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.
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.
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.
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
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.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
