Automobile accidents involving pedestrians are often some of the most difficult accidents to deal with. Victims often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries, including spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, and traumatic brain injuries, that are truly life-altering.
Being involved in this type of accident often leaves victims unable to work due to their injuries. They are often forced to undergo several surgeries and forced out of work due to their conditions. Courts across Utah recognize the difficulties victims face in the aftermath of an accident.
There are instances where victims are unable to recover from their injuries. As a result, they end up passing away due to complications. When this occurs, surviving family members are able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and funeral expenses.
