Motorcycle Accidents In Utah
Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries to those involved. Although motorcyclists make up less than 1% of drivers on roadways across the country, these individuals account for over 15% of traffic-related fatalities each year.
The truth is that a lot of drivers out on roadways do not pay attention. This is often dangerous for motorcyclists even more so because their vehicles are so small. Accidents where motorcyclists are killed often leave a trail of devastation, especially for surviving family members. In many cases, relatives to the decedent are able to file wrongful death lawsuits against the at-fault party to obtain compensation for funeral and medical expenses, as well as other damages related to the incident.
