Our lawyers provide legal services for many types of personal injury cases. The following list contains some of the most common causes of accidents and injuries due to negligence in the American Fork area.
Although having a small-town vibe, American Fork has aspects of life common to a big city, including traffic. Inherent to traffic are car accidents. They are a leading cause of serious injury in the US each year. Injuries can vary in a motor vehicle accident, but all should be taken seriously.
With its beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere, the area’s lakes can be popular destinations. Whether fishing, water skiing, or boating, it is common for residents of American Fork to be out on the water enjoying Utah Lake or the nearby Great Salt Lake. Unfortunately, negligence and incompetence can also happen on the water, resulting in traumatic injuries to boaters and others.
Being situated south of Salt Lake City, on I-15, American Fork receives considerable truck traffic. Large trucks, including tractor-trailers, can have truck drivers rushing or driving distracted. Since commercial trucks are also immense in size and usually carry weighty loads, which may sometimes be unsecured, they can cause catastrophic collisions and leave victims with extensive injuries.
The long stretches of the highway near American Fork and the scenic roads within the city can be perfect for motorcycle riders. Nonetheless, accidents can occur in an instant, due to another driver’s inattention, unmaintained roads, or other examples of negligence. The high velocity and limited protection of a motorcyclist also contribute to significant injury in these cases.
The area of American Fork receives almost twice as much snow per year as the national average. Although beautiful, ice and snow are among the leading culprits of slip-and-fall accidents. When the weather is warm, slip-and-falls still occur depending on certain conditions.
Additionally, property owners must maintain their properties to prevent persons from being injured and requiring medical attention. For example, uneven pavement and unmaintained walkways can easily cause people to slip and fall.
