A 15-year-old girl was hit at the crosswalk by Heartland Elementary School at 1500 West and 7000 South in West Jordan, where she suffered a serious head injury reports The Salt Lake Tribune. The lights at this intersection had not yet been activated for the morning school, but traffic was heavy and the girl was wearing dark clothing. This West Jordan pedestrian accident is still under investigation.
I offer my best wishes for this young woman and her family as she recovers. With serious head injuries in a developing, young teenager, the full impact of such an accident may not be known for years to come. Although not required, the family may wish to consider consulting with an West Jordan accident attorney to find out what remedies may be available in this situation. An experienced Utah attorney will be able to investigate all angles of this pedestrian accident to determine if there is a claim here or not.
