- Woman Killed, Man Critically Injured in Phoenix Motorcycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Motorcycles have become more popular in the area in recent years for many reasons, and that means that drivers of larger vehicles have needed to become more aware of those who choose to travel on two wheels as they make their way around the city. The reason is that if a collision between a motorcycle and a larger vehicle occurs, anyone riding on the motorcycle is obviously at a dangerous disadvantage. Tragically, a woman was killed and her passenger was critically injured in a Phoenix motorcycle accident over the weekend, and early indications are that the driver of the other vehicle may not have yielded the right-of-way.
According to authorities, this fatal Phoenix motorcycle accident occurred on Saturday at approximately 5 p.m. at the intersection of Bell Road and 43rd Avenue. 55-year-old Kimberly Chapman was driving her motorcycle with an unidentified 60-year-old passenger. Ms. Chapman was moving in an eastbound direction on Bell Road when she entered the intersection. At that point, an SUV being driven by an unidentified 22-year-old man failed to yield and attempted a left turn in front of the motorcycle, leading to the crash.
Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. We also hope that the man who was critically injured is able to survive the harm he has suffered. In addition, this tragic Phoenix motorcycle accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona motorcycle accidents. Every year in the state, 3,000 such crashes occur, and they lead to 2,500 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month.
Phoenix Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
If the available facts are accurate and this fatal Phoenix motorcycle accident was caused by the failure to yield, it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the SUV driver. It’s also possible for the injured passenger to file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit. However, reports indicate that neither person on the motorcycle was wearing a helmet, which could lead to an analysis of damages due to them under Arizona’s comparative negligence standard.
If you or someone you love has been harmed in a crash, you need to seek the help of Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyers who have been holding those responsible for this type of harm accountable for many years. Contact the 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!

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
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 tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
