The driver failed to notice a vehicle stopped in front of him, causing a rear-ended collision when he struck the back end of a black Mercury Milan.

Injured By Distracted Drivers In Utah
There are many reasons for car accidents in Utah. Unfortunately, most car accidents are preventable. This is especially true when accidents occur due to distracted drivers. Individuals who space out, mess with cell phones or reach for objects in their vehicles take their eyes off the road just long enough for accidents to occur.
When individuals are injured in accidents caused by distracted drivers, they are often able to file personal injury lawsuits against at-fault drivers. Personal injury lawsuits allow victims to collect repayment for injuries, medical expenses, vehicle replacement, and other damages sustained in the crash.
