Personal Injury - Lutz - Prescott, AZ

Don't Fight Alone.
How a family in an Auto Accident found a voice and with it, results.
Case Background: 

Sandy Lutz was driving her SUV, with her three children as passengers, on a highway on a family trip across Eastern Arizona.  Suddenly, an oncoming 18-wheel semi-truck jack-knifed across the road, coming toward her on both sides of the 2 lane highway at over 60 miles per hour.  Sandy partially evaded the semi-truck by emergency braking and steering to the right.  The terrifying collision with the tractor-trailer that resulted caused significant injuries for Sandy, but luckily her children escaped without serious injury.

Moving Forward: 

Soon after a free consultation with Chris Jensen, Dave and Sandy confirmed what Chris suggested: when the discussion turns to money, the trucking company and its insurer would be much harder to deal with, and no large sums would be paid unless the Lutz family had knowledgeable legal counsel. Soon after confirming that this was true, Sandy and Dave employed the Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C.. A liability, causation and damages investigation, evidence collection, evaluation and analysis process were done by the Jensen team.
