Salt Lake City, UT (February 19, 2021) – A woman, two young children, and a man were involved in a rollover accident on Interstate 15 on Wednesday, February 17th in Salt Lake City.
The woman was traveling northbound along Interstate 15 in a Mercedes-Benz which left the roadway when she attempted to enter the westbound lanes of Interstate 80.
Police reports show that the driver, who has since been identified as Maikel Enoch, was killed when she was thrown through the sunroof of the SUV she was driving and fell 30 feet to the ground below. The man and both children suffered non-life-threatening-injuries.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Maikel Enoch, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
The estate of a negligent driver may be sued for damages sustained by another person that was caused by the decedent’s actions before they died. When a person dies, their assets and debts will become part of a legal procedure known as probate. Everything owned by the decedent is inventoried and assessed and any debts the estate owes will be settled before any assets can be given to the beneficiaries or heirs of the estate. As a Utah personal injury victim, you are seen as a potential creditor with a debt owed by the decedent’s estate.
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.
