- School Bus Accident in Phoenix Leads to Pedestrian Fatality
School buses transport thousands of children to and from school every day in the Phoenix area, and for the most part these trips go off without incident. Unfortunately, when something goes wrong it tends to go very wrong given the number of people in the area and the young ages of most of the passengers whose safety is dependant upon the skill and focus of the driver. Many of the problems that arise in these situations result in the need for help from a Phoenix bus accident lawyer. Tragically, something went wrong recently when a school bus hit and killed a young man in a Phoenix bus accident. If you or a family member has been injured in a bus accident contact the qualified personal injury attorneysnear you today for a free legal consultation.
Arizona Bus Accident Injuries and Deaths
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred on January 12 when an unidentified 18-year-old man was riding a city bus and got off of it at approximately 7:30 a.m. at 46th Street and Broadway Road. The man left the bus and circled behind it before attempting to cross the road. When he was doing so, he was hit by an oncoming school bus and was killed. There were several young students on the school bus who were between 5 and 7 years of age, but none of them were hurt and none of them appeared to see the crash.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man who was killed. This is truly a tragedy that perhaps could have been avoided. In addition, this fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents. Every year, more than 1,500 such crashes occur, leading to more than 1,400 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month somewhere in the state.
Phoenix Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit Attorneys
It seems that more facts would need to be revealed before any legal recommendation could be made. However, if it turns out that the school bus driver was at fault, it could give rise to the filing of an Arizona personal injury lawsuit against the school district after the required procedural steps are taken that involve filing a notice of claim with the local government. Situations like these could lead to awards of damages that compensate the family of the man who was killed for their losses.
If you have lost someone you love in an accident, you need to seek the help of Arizona pedestrian accident lawsuit attorney who have been successfully defending the rights of grieving families for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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!

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!!
