Jaws of Life Used to Rescue Layton Car Accident Victim

posted December 15, 2011 | by

A Layton car accident required emergency crews on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, to use the jaws of life to rescue an injured man. According to KSL News, a man driving on Gordon Avenue at Fort Lane in Layton, around 6 p.m., was forced off the road then another car crashed into him and pushed his vehicle 40 feet down a ravine and into a creek.


The story says emergency crews took an hour to get the man out using the jaws of life. He was then transported to a local hospital with a head injury. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.

I offer my best wishes to this man for a speedy recovery. Traumatic brain injuries, however, aren’t always quick to heal and sometimes never fully heal Depending on the seriousness of the injury, his symptoms could remain with him possibly for the rest of his life.

Based on the story, it sounds like the driver of the other car was clearly liable for causing this wreck and the man’s injuries. He most likely has a claim against that driver and possibly an additional claim against his own insurance policy’s “under insured” coverage.
