West Valley City, UT (July 31, 2021) – A sergeant with the Utah Highway Patrol and multiple other people were hospitalized following a crash on Interstate 215 on the morning of Saturday, July 31st.
Reports show that the sergeant was investigating a vehicle that had been abandoned on the freeway in the area of 2800 South when another vehicle rear-ended his patrol car.
According to a Utah Department of Public Safety statement, the sergeant was sitting in his car when the accident occurred. He and the occupants of the other car were all transported by paramedics to various area hospitals.
None of the people involved in the crash have been identified.
Police have not said how many people were in the other vehicle, or how serious their injuries were. The exact time of the accident has also not been released.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Although there are many different styles of car accidents that can cause injuries to the people involved, most of them have in common that the injuries sustained by many crash victims will have a serious negative impact on their lives.
At Jardine Law Offices P. C., our Utah personal injury attorneys make certain that our clients receive justice. We do everything in our power to make it possible for our clients to receive the maximum amount of compensation possible for their claims.
The physical and psychological trauma often experienced by crash victims can leave them incapacitated and incapable of working. In some cases, victims may be out of work for just a few weeks. In more severe cases, victims may never be able to return to the job they once held.
Crash victims who are not able to return to work and earn the same wages they did before their accident do not deserve to be robbed of a future that includes financial security.
When injuries result from auto crashes due to the recklessness of other motorists, victims need legal advice from a reputable car accident attorney in Salt Lake City. Anytime someone is harmed due to another driver’s negligence, they are legally permitted to collect financial remuneration from the liable party in order to reduce the economic hardships brought on by hospital bills, lost wages, property damage, and many other losses.
Since it isn’t the victim’s fault that they can no longer work and earn a living the way they did prior to their accident, they should not be forced to suffer the stress and indignity of financial ruin brought on by an accident that was someone else’s fault.
Your accident-related injuries could require medical testing that is not widely available or treatments that, while necessary, are prohibitively expensive. Some of the injuries that occur most frequently in car crash victims are soft tissue injuries like whiplash, injuries to the shoulders, neck, and head, deep lacerations, multiple broken bones, and spinal cord injuries.
For many victims, the pain they experience daily is so severe that they cannot work, hastening the impending financial burden.
