If you have been injured in the state of Utah as a pedestrian, there are a few things that you need to do right away. First, you need to seek out medical care for any injuries that you have. It’s important that you get to a doctor so that you can understand what injuries you have and what you can do to heal from those injuries. Second, it’s important that you follow any of the recommendations and instructions of your doctor. An insurance company is watching to see if you follow the instructions of your doctor or not, and if you don’t, they will offer less value to your case.
Third, you need to hire an attorney early on. An attorney can step into your case, help you organize your case, and help you avoid some of the common mistakes and pitfalls that we often see people fall into. Fourth, it’s important that you hire a trial attorney. A trial attorney is someone that is willing to take your case to a jury verdict. Insurance companies know very well who the trial attorneys are, and they treat those cases differently, offering a more fair value on those cases.
