Some accidents are so dangerous they lead to life-altering injuries that may require a long recovery, or that may never fully heal. The physical toll from these injuries is considerable, but the emotional toll on the victim and his or her family can also be significant.
Although recovering compensation does not change what happened, it can help families obtain the medical treatment that is needed and provide a level of financial security. At Phillips Law Group, our trusted legal team has recovered millions in compensation for those who suffered catastrophic injuries. This includes a $7.65 million settlement for a victim of a traumatic brain injury and $3.1 million for a car accident victim with a broken neck. We have been fighting for the rights of injury victims for more than 27 years.
Discussing your claim with a licensed Yuma catastrophic injury lawyer is an important step to take. The consultation with an attorney from Phillips Law Group is free of charge and comes with no obligation to take legal action. There is no upfront cost to you if we take on your case.

How Do I Know if I Have a Case?
Most catastrophic injury cases require the victim to prove his or her injuries were the result of another party’s negligence.
The legal theory of negligence includes four elements your attorney must establish to be able to seek compensation for an injury:
- Duty of care ”“ There must have been a legal obligation for the at-fault party to act with care to prevent others from suffering an injury.
- Breach of duty of care ”“ If the duty of care was not upheld, the at-fault party may be held accountable for the injuries or losses that resulted. While a breach of duty of care is often breached by a party’s actions, sometimes the duty is breached by a failure to act.
- Linking the injury with the duty of care ”“ It must be proven that the injury would not have occurred had the defendant upheld the duty of care.
- Injury damages ”“ Your lawyer must also prove your injuries resulted in physical, financial or emotional damages.
It is difficult to determine if you may have a case without talking to a trusted Yuma catastrophic injury attorney about the details of your injury.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
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 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.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
