Salt Lake County, UT (November 5, 2020) – A serious traffic accident that caused injuries and several northbound lanes to be blocked on US-15 occurred around 1:30 pm on Tuesday. It is unclear at this time how many vehicles were involved in this accident.
Emergency responders medically evaluated everyone involved in the collision and administered medical aid to those who required it. Emergency crews blocked off at least 3 lanes of traffic in order to investigate the accident and to clear debris out of the roadway.
At this time, investigations surrounding the accident are ongoing.
Our thoughts are with those who were injured in this accident. We hope for a speedy and full recovery.
Auto accidents involving cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles are one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States and a cause for concern for Salt Lake County residents. While the death rate has improved since its height in the previous century, it is still significantly higher than other developed countries, according to the CDC.
In 2014, there were seventeen total deaths in Salt Lake City that were caused by car collisions. A total of twenty-five people were involved in those accidents, leaving eight survivors. At this point in time, the most common cause of car accidents was following too closely. In fact, 21% of all accidents in the United States are caused by those who are in a hurry and fail to leave enough space for others ahead of them. But the tragedy of an accident isn’t just for the loved ones of those whose lives were tragically lost in these times. In fact, the survivors of these tragic accidents also suffer.
When victims are harmed in collisions, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages. It is important for car crash victims to contact a Salt Lake City car accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure that they receive the maximum compensation that they deserve
