  • Abstract:
    This report examines 2007 hospital discharge data reporting cases where the external cause of injury to

    a vehicle occupant was a motor vehicle crash to predict the estimated savings to Utah if a primary seat

    belt law is implemented. The savings are calculated using costs based on the report Economic Impact of

    Motor Vehicle Crashes (DOT HS 809 446). In Utah, there is an expectation of a primary law reducing

    the burden of insurance companies by about $11.0 million from crashes occurring in a single year alone

    The residents of Utah would benefit by a reduction of more than $376,000 while the Federal

    Government would reduce its costs by about $351,000 before reimbursing Utah for a portion of

    Medicaid expenditures. Utah would also reduce its spending by more than $614,000 ($180,000 after

    reimbursement).
