Iron Co, UT (March 12, 2021) – A woman was left pinned underneath a truck following an accident on Interstate 15 on Friday, March 12th in Iron County.
Sources stated that the woman was left in serious condition when the pick-up truck in which she was riding overturned several times when the driver lost control just outside of Cedar City.
Officials from the Utah Highway Patrol said the woman was transported via ambulance to a local hospital after she was successfully extricated from under the pick-up truck.
The male driver endured injuries classified as non-life-threatening and a baby also inside the truck was unharmed thanks to being appropriately restrained in a car seat.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Utah requires every single driver to carry a minimum of $3,000 in Personal Injury Protection insurance. This is intended to satisfy the cost of any medical treatment for their injuries, $20 a day in household help, and as much as $250 per week in lost wages, regardless of who was liable.
For most Utah car crash victims, however, this is nowhere near enough to cover all of their accident-related damages and losses. It also fails to proved victims with any measure of financial compensation for their pain and suffering. An experienced Utah car accident attorney will be familiar with the best way to deal with your current expenses and provide you with a successful outcome to your injury claim.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable car accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible.
When victims are harmed in collisions, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
