Orem, UT (May 10, 2021) – A man riding a motorcycle died on Saturday, May 8th when he was involved in an accident along with his 11-year-old daughter in Orem.
The victim has since been identified by authorities as Jeremy Huddleston Schmidt.
The accident took place at about 2:00 p.m. at the intersection of State Street and 400 North.
Police are still investigating but believe that it was caused by an initial crash in which the motorcycle was not involved. The girl riding with her father was hospitalized with non-critical injuries.
The drivers of the other vehicles involved were unharmed during the incident.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Jeremy Huddleston Schmidt, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family in hopes of a full recovery.
Personal injury is a common outcome of motorcycle accidents, as victims often require emergency medical treatments or even extended hospitalization. As a result, injured riders may be forced to take time away from work and endure a significant loss of income during their convalescence.
A personal injury attorney who has experience handling motorcycle accidents will be able to minimize its negative impact on your life.
Catastrophic injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury or even wrongful death can be caused by a serious motorcycle accident, particularly when a collision with another vehicle is involved. This is because motorcycles do not provide any of the safety features that occupants of a passenger vehicle often take for granted, such as seat belts, a roll cage, and airbags, leaving riders susceptible to enduring severe internal injuries, as well as injuries to their spinal cord and brain.
These life-altering injuries can cost several thousand dollars in medical expenses that cause the rider and their family to suffer an economic hardship from which they may never recover.
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 motorcycle 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.
