Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Utah
In 2017, 43 pedestrians were killed in accidents. Although it may seem like a small number, the impact of a pedestrian accident is quite large and often overwhelming for families. Surviving family members are often left without the financial resources necessary to pay for medical and funeral expenses for the victim. In some cases, families lose wage earnings and end up struggling to take care of financial obligations.
In Utah, surviving family members can file wrongful death claims against at-fault parties to obtain compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face in the aftermath of pedestrian accidents. For over 30-years, attorneys at Siegfried & Jensen have helped families across Utah obtain full and fair compensation for their losses from at-fault parties.
