Taylorsville, UT (June 16, 2021) – Police were dispatched to the scene of a serious accident on Thursday, June 17th in Taylorsville.
According to a source inside the Unified Police Department, officers responded to a crash between a motorcycle and another vehicle on Redwood Road in the area of 4600 South when a 34-year-old man riding his motorcycle was rear-ended by a Subaru, ejecting him from the bike and onto the asphalt.
He was taken by ambulance to a local trauma center where he is listed in extremely critical condition.
The southbound lanes of Redwood Road were shut down between 4700 South and 4200 South for several hours to allow for investigation and road clean-up.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Personal injury is a typical consequence of motorcycle accidents since victims often need emergency medical treatments or even extended hospitalizations. As a result, injured riders often have to take time off from work and face a significant loss of income while they convalesce.
A motorcycle accident attorney who has experience overseeing motorcycle accidents will be able to lessen its negative impact on your life.
Catastrophic injuries, like a traumatic brain injury or even wrongful death, can result from a serious motorcycle crash, particularly when another vehicle is involved. This is due to the fact that motorcycles do not offer any of the safety features that those inside of passenger vehicles take for granted, such as seat belts, a roll cage, and airbags, leaving riders vulnerable 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.
