Even without design flaws, like obscured street signage or potholes, intersections present unique hazards for drivers in Utah. There are often several drivers, bicycle riders, and/or pedestrians traveling at different speeds in different directions, and some intersections have up to six lanes all coming together. Intersection accidents, even at slow speeds, are capable of causing serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.
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.
