South Salt Lake, UT (March 02, 2021) – A 50-year-old male sustained critical injuries after he was struck by a car as he attempted to make his way across the intersection at State Street and Claybourne Avenue in South Salt Lake on Tuesday, March 02.
Local law enforcement stated that they were dispatched to the site at about 9:30 p.m. The pedestrian was transported to an area hospital with critical injuries, including one to his head.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the police, who do not expect driver impairment to be a factor.
The area was closed for about two and a half hours as officers conducted an investigation.
Additional information, including the name of the victim, has not been released.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
If you have sustained an injury in a Utah pedestrian accident, you will quickly receive a call from the insurance company of the driver involved in your accident, hoping to get you to provide a recorded statement. You are not required to oblige, nor is it recommended that you do so if you have not yet sought the counsel of a personal injury attorney.
It is always a wise move to meet with an attorney before giving a statement to anyone. This is due to the fact that insurance carriers actually teach their adjusters to ask certain questions worded in such a way as to bring down the value of your claim as much as possible. An experienced Utah pedestrian accident attorney can stop these adjusters from taking advantage of you.
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 pedestrian accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible.
When victims are injured during car accidents 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.
