- Snow Plow Accident Lawsuits | Phillips Law Group
When most people think of Arizona, the last thing they think about is snow. Of course, there are many ski resorts throughout the state, along with many mountainous regions which receive plenty of snow during the winter months. In fact, Flagstaff averages 100 at 7000 feet, while many of the ski resorts will get over 300 of snow.
With snow comes the increased risk for people to become involved in snowplow accidents, and other forms of accidents, simply due to the fact that they are not accustomed to such conditions. A snowplow is a vehicle intended to remove snow and ice from outdoor surfaces. These snow plows can appear in many different forms and are generally used in environments that receive heavy snow each year.
At Phillips Law Group, our truck accident attorneys recognize the types of accidents which can occur with snow plows, and have great sympathy for those injured in these types of accidents. Our attorneys will seek the maximum compensation benefits for our clients, while helping them to achieve the justice they deserve.

Types of Snow Removal Vehicle Equipment
In general, most areas which receive a large amount of snow each year have a fleet of snow removal vehicles ready to clear the roadways, sidewalks, footpaths, and cycle ways. These vehicles may require an assortment of different equipment depending on their intentions.
Some types of snow removal vehicle equipment include:
- Front-End Loader
- Jet-Powered Snow Blower
- Materials (sea-salt, sand, melting agents)
- Snow Blower
- Snow Groomer
- Snow Melter
- Snow Sweeper
- Surface Friction Tester
Although all of these pieces of equipment serve to assist our community with snow removal, they may also pose a threat to people in the surrounding areas if they are used negligently.
Types of Winter Service Vehicle Collisions
As winter service vehicles are required to operate in extreme conditions, occasionally they may become involved in accidents. There are typically a number of contributing factors in these accidents, as these large trucks have many blind spots, decreased maneuverability due to their size, bad weather and road conditions, and the need to pay attention for other vehicles and pedestrians.
Some types of winter service vehicle collisions include:
- Adverse Road Conditions
- Air Brake Failure

- Blind Spot Accidents
- Cargo Exceeds Weight Limit
- Distracted Drivers
- Excessive Speeding
- Fatigued Driving
- Faulty Vehicle Equipment
- Inability to Stop Vehicle Quickly
- Inadequately Maintained vehicle
- Inexperienced Drivers
- Operating While Intoxicated
After these types of wrecks occur, there may be several different types of injuries caused. These injuries can range in severity depending on a number of different factors.
Types of Winter Service Vehicle Injuries
Winter service vehicles have many different types of equipment attached to them, therefore when a driver uses this equipment inappropriately or another driver becomes involved in an accident, it may cause many types of injuries.
Some winter service vehicle injuries include:
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Dental Injuries
- Dislocated Joints
- Facial Injuries
- Internal Injuries
- Loss of Limb
- Nerve Damage

Following any type of accident, it is highly advised to seek medical attention. This will assure all injuries are properly cared for, while also preventing further injuries from arising.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
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.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
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.
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.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Liz was great
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.
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!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
