Salt Lake City, UT (August 03, 2022) – A motorcyclist was badly injured during a collision with a suspected drunk driver in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, August 2nd.
According to sources, the incident took place at about 9:15 p.m. in the 1400th block of South Main Street.
That accident involved a car and a motorcycle. The motorcyclist, a 50-year-old man, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital in critical condition.
An investigation determined that the rider was passing the car when the driver decided to change lanes.
The 23-year-old driver of the car showed signs of impairment but has cooperated with the investigation so far.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
If you were injured in a motorcycle crash, you could be eligible for financial compensation through a personal injury suit. When investigating the accident, an experienced Utah motorcycle accident lawyer will advise you on all types of compensation you are entitled to. Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of all state and local laws and decades of experience in successfully resolving these kinds of cases.
Calculating the worth of your claim is extremely difficult without the direction of an experienced attorney.
No two motorcycle accidents are the same, meaning it can be difficult to determine if victims or their surviving family members are entitled to compensation without the benefit of a licensed attorney.
