Anyone in Utah who has been in even a minor motor vehicle accident knows that it can be a scary situation. In the immediate aftermath there seems to be nothing but uncertainty, as those involved immediately attempt to determine the extent of the damage to the vehicles involved and what injuries, if any, have occurred. For those who have been involved in more serious car accidents, those jitters, feelings of uncertainty and the general sense of confusion can be multiplied.
Although most people commonly refer to these incidents as “accidents,” the fact is that most motor vehicle collisions are probably caused by some form of negligence or recklessness. Speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving and even just minor inattentiveness can cause motor vehicle accidents in Utah. For those who have suffered injuries in these collisions, there may be legal options.
After a motor vehicle accident, injured victims may want to consider whether or not to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Such legal action, if successful, could result in an award of financial compensation that can help injured victims pay for the unexpected medical expenses that typically accumulate in the aftermath of a serious motor vehicle crash. A financial award could help with other expenses as well, such as lost pay from missed time off of work.
