Drunk Driver Injures Young Girl in West Valley City Accident

posted May 2, 2012 | by

A woman critically injured an 11-year-old girl while driving under the influence of alcohol on Sunday, April 29, 2012. According to KSL News, A 30-year-old woman and her two children were driving in a Nissan Murano at the intersection of SR-201 and 7200 West in West Valley, Utah when they were hit by 41-year-old Cheyanna Nemath in a Dodge Caravan. Their SUV was destroyed and Ms. Nemath was taken to jail. See her rap sheet here. The mother and her 8-year-old son were taken to a local hospital in poor condition, while the 11-year-old daughter was flown to the hospital by helicopter in critical condition. The 8-year-old boy was released from the hospital a short time later. The mother remained in fair condition. The drunk driver was also treated for injuries at a local hospital and then taken to the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of causing a serious injury and driving under the influence of alcohol.

I sent my best wishes for a fast recovery to the girl and her mother.

As a Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer, I would counsel this family to consult with an attorney in order to find out the best options to help get restitution for these injuries caused by a drunk driver. Legally speaking, claims should of course be made against the intoxicated driver and her insurance company as well as against the under-insured insurance that the mother and her daughter had on their vehicle.

“Tengo una experiencia muy buena con Kramer Law Group. Primero vinieron a mi casa porque yo no podía salir. Nunca se mostraron insistentes y siempre me resultó muy fácil ponerme en contacto con ellos cada vez que tenía dudas. Se ocuparon de todas las facturas recibidas, yo simplemente les envié copias; ellos llamaron y las hicieron pagar sin yo tener que hacer nada. Recibí una compensación en el momento oportuno. Recomendaría Kramer Law Group a todo el mundo.”
