West Jordan, UT (May 04, 2022) – One person was hospitalized in unknown condition after they were struck by a car on Wednesday, May 4th in West Jordan.
The incident took place at about 8:40 p.m. at the intersection of Mountain View Corridor and 7800 South, in the area of Gladstone Place Apartments.
Detectives are still working to determine exactly what happened.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Although our state’s negligence and traffic laws provide pedestrians with legal protection, even if they are somewhat to blame for the accident, there is no shortage of legal entanglements that can weaken your case. For instance, if the driver argues you were jaywalking, you could potentially lose your case.
Under Utah law, motor vehicles must yield to pedestrians. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, it is crucial not only for the benefit of your health but also for the legitimacy of your claim, that you seek medical treatment even if your injuries seem insignificant.
Snares like this are why it is essential that you work with a reliable lawyer who is able to guarantee that your case is irrefutable to the opposing party.
