Pedestrian Accidents In Utah
Every year, over 750 people are injured in pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, over 30 people lose their lives after being struck by vehicles on roadways throughout Utah. Regardless of the number of laws enacted across the state to keep pedestrians safe, they continue to be harmed in large numbers.
When pedestrians are injured in motor vehicle accidents, they often sustain very serious and life-altering injuries. These injuries can force them to be bedridden and out of work for several weeks to recover. Unfortunately, along with the pain comes thousands of dollars in medical bills for treatments. Injured pedestrians should contact a Utah pedestrian accident attorney to protect their legal rights.
