Utah Auto Collisions

Car accidents in Utah cause injuries to thousands of people per year. In 2020, over 53,000 auto accidents occurred in the city of Salt Lake alone. These collisions cause over 16,000 people to sustain injuries per year. That same year, around 270 people were killed in auto accidents in the United States. 

In Utah, auto accidents happen for a multitude of reasons. Some of these reasons include: 

  • aggressive/offensive driving
  • drunk/drugged driving
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Speeding

While drivers travel along the highways and roadways in Utah, numerous actions can be taken to protect their safety and that of those on the roadway around them. These include wearing seatbelts, obeying traffic laws, and keeping their attention on the road at all times. 

Personal injury lawyers can help you get the justice you deserve after you’re injured by driver negligence. You may qualify for financial compensation for lost wages, pain, suffering, medical care costs, and more.
