Injuries from Recreational Activites in Utah
Many of us enjoy the great Utah summers and great outdoor activites our state has to offer. The Utah great outdoors offers adventurers everything from boating on lakes, sand dunes, camping, 4 wheeling, fireworks in the summers and skiing in the winters. Unfortunately, every year, there are many accidents that occur from recreational activities in Utah. The summers are especially bad for serious injuries because so many of us are out participating in more dangerous recreational activities. Often, a serious recreational injury is the result of another’s negligence. Many clients call us during the summer months after they or loved one was seriously injured from another’s negligence in a recreational activity. For instance, we have seen cases involving 4x4s, ATVs, mountain bikes, boats, wave runners, fireworks, and motorcycles in which injuries or deaths could have been avoided had a third party exercised reasaonble care in the activity.
Over this past holiday weekend of July 24, 2010, (Pionner Day) there were many serious injury cases reported. At the Liberty Park Fireworks Show , there were 10 people injured after fireworks malfunctioned and shot into a crowd. Other reported accidents and injuries included atv accidents, bike accidents, boat accidents, and swimming accidents, just to name a few.
