Salt Lake City, UT (August 20, 2022) – Police and fire crews responded to the scene of a car accident on Saturday, August 20th in Salt Lake City.
The incident took place in the area of 200 West and 400 South at about 6:25 p.m.
A local source confirmed that EMTs were called to the scene to aid injured victims and transfer those with significant injuries to a local hospital.
This accident is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The most important thing to consider in determining whether or not your claim is valid is if the four elements of negligence were present. These four elements are:
- Was a duty of care owed?: Did the liable party have a statutory obligation to act in a reasonable manner to prevent harm from coming to themselves and others?
- Was that duty breached?: When someone violates their duty of care, people can easily get hurt. Would a prudent person in the same or a similar situation have behaved differently to prevent harm? If so, the duty of care may have been violated.
- Does causation exist?: You or your lawyer will have to show that your injury was directly caused by the violated duty of care. Could the accident have been prevented if the defendant had maintained their duty?
- Were damages generated?: Did the accident result in economic damages like medical expenses, lost income due to being unable to work, or property damage? In some cases, victims might be eligible to collect compensation for emotional trauma.
No two accidents are quite the same. This means it can be hard to determine if victims are entitled to compensation without the benefit of a licensed attorney.
