If you’ve been hit on your bicycle in the state of Utah, you’re probably going to get a call from the insurance company for the driver of the car that hit you, and they’re going to want to take your recorded statement. I recommend that you not give them a recorded statement without talking to an attorney first. The insurance companies train their adjusters to get the information that they need to help their case and hurt your case. They try to do that right at the beginning of a case and use it against you.
If you’ve been injured in a bicycle crash, you may be wondering, “How much is my case worth? If you contact us early on, that’s a very difficult thing for us to answer. Part of the reason for that is because we need to see what happens with your treatment. We need to see if the medical treatment that you get helps you, if it gets you back to work, and gets you back to doing the things you love to do. All of those things have to go into it to deciding what the value of the case is.
Whether or not your child has a claim for being injured while at school depends on a number of factors. First, it’s important to understand that being injured at school does not automatically create a claim for your child. It’s the same analysis that occurs in other types of injuries where you need to look at the facts and see if the school created or didn’t prevent a hazard that injured your child. It’s important to come in and talk to an attorney to look at the different factors involved and see if your child does have a claim.
