Salt Lake City, UT (October 9, 2022) – On Sunday, October 9th, at around 11 p.m., a two-vehicle collision on Redwood Road resulted in several injuries.
An investigation revealed that two vehicles were going on Redwood around 3500 South when they collided in what seemed to be a rear-end collision for reasons that are currently under investigation. The circumstances surrounding the accident are being explored now.
The Department of Public Safety said that paramedics were present at the site and that at least two persons may have been transferred to a local hospital; however, the nature of their injuries and their current status is still unclear.
However, at this stage in the investigation, the troopers have not unearthed any new information that might throw light on whether or not distracted driving contributed to the collision. Currently, the inquiry is underway.
Our thoughts are with the wounded victims and their families. We’re hoping for their full recovery.
Tragically and all too frequently, passengers may be seriously hurt in car accidents caused by another driver, either in the car they’re traveling in or in another vehicle. Those who were not driving a vehicle at the time of the incident may have a difficult time filing a claim for financial compensation for injuries and losses sustained as a direct result of the collision. As a passenger in a car involved in an accident, you have access to a number of legal avenues via which you may seek monetary compensation for the injuries you have sustained as a consequence of the incident.
In the event of an accident, the Personal Injury Protection coverage will pay at least $3,000 for each passenger’s first medical expenses. Regardless of the nature of the accident, this is always the case.
Each passenger in a Utah-registered automobile is required to have personal injury protection coverage with a minimum value of $3,000 in the event of an accident. The state’s laws require that you comply with this requirement. This degree of protection is offered to the policyholder as a consequence of the automobile’s insurance coverage.
If the injured passenger has not fully recovered by the time the PIP funds have been depleted, they are required to file a lawsuit against the careless driver who was responsible for their injuries in order to seek compensation for the physical pain and suffering they have endured as a result of those injuries.
