When someone has been injured in the state of Utah as a pedestrian, some of the most common mistakes are, first, individuals won’t seek out the medical care that they need. If you have been injured, it’s important that you get to a doctor as quickly as you can so that you can understand what your injuries are and what you need to do to recover from them. Number two, people will not follow the instructions of their doctors. If a doctor has suggested that you come back for a follow-up appointment or that you go and see a specialist, it’s important that you follow that doctor’s instructions and recommendations.
Mistake number three is that people will not hire an attorney early enough in the case. An attorney can step in early on, can organize your case, and can help you avoid pitfalls and make any of the common mistakes. Number four, when you hire an attorney, you need to make sure that you hire a trial attorney. A trial attorney is someone who is willing to take your case to court and take your case to a jury verdict. Insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are, and hiring a trial attorney can have a big impact on your case.
