A Utah Attorney notes that unique accidents carry same risks

November 6, 2013

Accidents are fairly usual occurrences amid the hustle and bustle of the city traffic, a fact that any Utah attorney can bear witness to. Salt Lake City exists as a mecca for tourists during each part of the year, especially in the colder months full of snow and winter sport opportunities and with implementations of various mass transportation options in the city, the results of car accidents have unfortunately remained as a city staple. Most Utah lawyers in Salt Lake City, and residents, are aware of the numerous train and vehicle collisions that have occurred within the past year alone. Unfortunately, this random but devastating occurrence happened again this past week.

Three individuals in the city of Midvale are recovering from a TRAX collision. According to reports, a section of the high-speed mass transport vehicle became unhooked and left on the track, which then caused a collision with the train at a later time. Although, the conductor tried to stop in time, it was too late. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the accident, but it has shaken up the residents, as these unique accidents often do. An investigation will go into the matter to determine how the lone car became unhooked in the first place. Any Utah attorney notes that these unique occurrences, while unlikely, still carry the same risks and dangers as a regular vehicle collision. Following these collisions it’s important to take care of and reestablish yourself. No one hopes to need an attorney in such a situation, but unfortunately the need often does arise.

It’s important to seek a Utahlawyer you can trust, with a reputation of honesty and integrity. What may be worse than needing to retain an attorney following an accident, is retaining a bad attorney. This is something the Utah lawyers at Shumway Van and Hansen don’t want a potential client to have to go through. That’s why our firm offers free thirty-minute consultations so that you can have a first hand look at our firm, our meeting attorney, and make the decision at no cost to you. We are confident in our ability to answer your initial questions and to help you determine your next legal step. If you need a consultation feel free to call at (801) 478-8080. We can set up a consultation at your convenience
