Mountain Green, UT (August 16, 2022) – A motorcyclist died on Tuesday, August 16th after an accident on state Route 167 caused him to fall down a steep embankment. 

The crash took place at about 11:30 p.m. on Trappers Loop, just outside of Mountain Green.  

The Utah Department of Public Safety reported that the 71-year-old man was struck going around a bend in the road. The Harley Davidson struck a rail, and the man was ejected from the bike and fell roughly 150 feet.

Estimating the value of a motorcycle accident claim is extremely challenging without the direction of an experienced lawyer.

If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you might be eligible for compensation by way of a wrongful death suit. When investigating your accident, our lawyers will outline every type of recovery you could be entitled to.

Some types of compensation that motorcycle collision victims or their surviving relatives might be entitled to include: 

  • Prescription medication

  • Mental trauma
  • Lost income 
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
