Car Crashes in Murray
In 2016, there were 78 fatal intersection accidents in Utah accounting for almost 20% of all fatal car accidents that year. In 2015, 276 people died in all types of Utah car accidents; the highest rate of fatalities in the state in the last seven years. According to a representative from the Utah Highway Patrol, no less than 93% of those deaths were caused by human error.
While driving regulations and laws in every state exist for the main purpose of limiting car accidents and the loss of life, it is obvious that not enough is being done. This is especially true when you consider that Utah’s rate of fatal car accidents has increased by over 25% since its all-time low back in 2012.
Although some of these fatal accidents can be attributed to a major increase in travel, most of the state’s fatal crashes occur because drivers refuse to heed the state’s warnings about safe driving. Offenses are various and range from not being properly restrained to driving while intoxicated. The first and foremost point to understand is the importance of safety as a serious car accident can happen at any time.
The moments after a car accident can be extremely confusing during a time when it is crucial to have clarity. This is why the invaluable assistance of compassionate representation is so important. A skilled Utah personal injury attorney can conduct a complete investigation of your accident, determine who was liable, ensure that you are given full benefits by the insurance carrier, and assist you in obtaining medical care even if you are unable to make your co-pays or don’t have any health insurance at all.
