When someone has been injured in a slip and fall in the state of Utah, there are a number of common mistakes that are made. Mistake number one is not seeking out the medical care you need. If you have been injured, it’s important that you see a doctor right away so that you can begin to heal from the injuries you have sustained. Mistake number two is not following the recommendations of the doctor. If the doctor has suggested that you do something, it’s very important that you follow that doctor’s instructions.
Mistake number three is to not hire an attorney. An attorney can come in early on, help you organize your case, and help you avoid some of the pitfalls and common problems that we see people fall into. Mistake number four is to not hire an attorney who is a trial attorney. Insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are and who is willing to take a case to a jury verdict. Hiring an attorney who is a trial attorney can be one of the things that adds the most value to your case.
