Lawyers USA 

UTAH Under the "professional rescuer" rule, a highway trooper who was injured while responding to an accident can't sue the driver at fault, the Utah Supreme Court has ruled.

The lower court decision was reported at "Officer can't recover for accident scene injury," Lawyers USA, March 13, 2006. Search terms for Lawyers USA Archives: Fordham and Oldroyd.

The plaintiff was struck by a vehicle while retrieving hazard flares. He was responding to a rollover accident that allegedly resulted from the defendant's negligent high-speed driving in winter conditions.
