When someone has been injured in a bicycle accident in the state of Utah, there are several mistakes that can be made. Some of the most common ones that I see are, number one, not seeking medical care as quickly as you can. If you have been injured, it’s important that you get to a doctor and seek treatment for the injuries that you have as soon as you can. Number two, an individual will not follow the recommendations of their doctors. If your doctor has given you instructions and recommended that you do something, it is important that you follow that doctor’s recommendations.
Number three is you’ll wait to hire an attorney. An attorney can step in early on in a case, help you organize, and help you avoid some of the pitfalls that people make. Number four, when selecting an attorney, an individual will not hire a trial attorney. A trial attorney is someone who is willing to take your case into court and to a jury verdict. Insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are, and they value cases that are run by trial attorneys differently than cases that are ran by individuals who are unwilling to take a case to trial.
