Springville Utah High School Football Player Dies in Accident

posted July 28, 2010 | by

Brandon Curtis, a football player at Springville High School, in Springville, Utah, passed away from a massive brain injury sustained following a parking lot accident Tuesday, July 27, 2010. According to KSL News, the four high school students had just finished football practice and got into one of the boy’s Jeep. None had seat belts on. The driver then made a very tight turn, over corrected, and lost control of the Jeep, causing it to roll. When the vehicle rolled, the occupants were ejected, including Brandon. Somehow, Brandon Curtis got caught under the Jeep and experienced a major traumatic brain injury. The other students have not been identified but are between 16 to 18 in age. Funeral arrangements are currently pending.

I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Brandon Curtis. I could tell from the story that he was well liked and lived life to its fullest.

Legally speaking, the family of young Brandon Curtis has a claim against the driver of the Jeep he was in (unless he was the driver). The action of turning tightly in the school parking lot – in a Jeep – was a dangerous maneuver could have been expected to cause injury. This is especially true since it appears the boys in the Jeep were not wearing seat belts.

I would recommend that the family of Brandon Curtis contact an experienced Utah wrongful death attorney regarding the remedies that are available following this tragic accident.
