Car Rolls of Embankment in Sandy and Injures Two Passengers
Date: November 9, 2015
Location: Bluff and Dubarko Roads
Monday evening, two people were seriously injured when their car missed a turn and went down, 30-foot embankment in Sandy.
The crash occurred near Bluff and Dubarko roads when a Pontiac sedan overturned and went off the road.
The two back seat passengers, ages 21 and 22, were taken to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
The 19-year-old driver and front passenger were not injured.
Police believe speed was likely a contributing factor to the cause of the crash.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we hope the two passengers are able to fully recover soon.
While many single-car accidents seem uncomplicated, there are sometimes other factors to consider. If you have been injured in a single- car accident, like the one described here, you may be able to receive compensation in several instances:
- If poor road conditions, poor signage, or bad traffic control contributed to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the city, county, or state. In cases against a public body, you may only have 180 days to file a tort claim notice (in most cases) so act quickly to protect your rights.
- If the car’s mechanic was negligent in his last repairs, contributing to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the mechanic or his business.
- If the car’s manufacturer was negligent, you may be able to file a product liability suit against them. Car manufacturers have often been held accountable for design defects and manufacturing defects, and these lawsuits help ensure that future drivers are not hurt by negligent safety standards.
