Moab, UT (October 8, 2022) – At around 4:50 p.m. on Saturday, October 8th, a two-vehicle accident on State Route 191 resulted in several injuries.
An investigation indicated that there were three automobiles traveling on Highway 91 when they collided at approximately mile marker 368 in what seemed to be a rear-end accident for causes that are still under investigation. The circumstances surrounding the crash are currently being investigated.
The Department of Public Safety said that there were paramedics present at the scene and that at least two people may have been transported to a hospital in the area, although the nature of their injuries and their current condition are both unknown at this time.
However, at this point in the inquiry, the troopers have not uncovered any new material that might shed light on whether or not distracted driving was a contributing factor in the crash. The investigation remains ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts and hopes for a full recovery are with the injured victims and their families.
Those individuals who were not operating a vehicle at the time of the collision may find it very difficult to file a claim for financial compensation for the injuries and losses they received as a direct consequence of the collision. As a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in an accident, you have access to a variety of various legal options through which you may seek financial compensation for the injuries you have received as a result of the collision.
In the case of a collision, the Personal Injury Protection policy will reimburse at least $3,000 in first medical costs for each passenger. It makes no difference what kind of accident it was; this is always the case.
Each passenger in a car registered in the state of Utah must have personal injury protection coverage with a minimum value of three thousand dollars if the vehicle is involved in an accident. The laws of the state necessitate that you comply with this stipulation. The policyholder is afforded this level of protection as a result of the insurance coverage on the automobile.
If the injured passenger has not fully healed by the time the PIP funds have been depleted, they are compelled to take legal action against the negligent driver who caused their injuries in order to seek compensation for their physical pain and suffering.
