Car Accidents At Intersection In Utah
Intersections are one of the most common locations for car accidents to occur. Drivers assume they have the right-of-way and end up causing devastating car accidents. Quite often, individuals fail to yield to those who have the right away, striking them, and causing serious injuries.
When individuals are injured in car accidents caused by negligent or careless drivers, they are able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver to obtain remuneration for the injuries they sustain, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages from the accident.
