If you have been seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence, please contact our experienced Utah personal injury lawyers today to arrange a free consultation. Personal injury is a term that covers a lot of different branches of accidents and incidents. Generally speaking, when you are injured due to someone else’s carelessness, it is important for you to know that you may be eligible for a personal injury claim. You will have your medical bills covers along with your lost wages and any other expense that you have had to incur because of your accident. That will hopefully help you to get back on your feet and return to normal. Our Utah personal injury lawyer is here to help you through your personal injury claim to ensure that you will be getting the fullest and fairest compensation available after your accident. We understand how vulnerable you may be feeling and we want to be there for you.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
As mentioned, personal injury is a kind of umbrella term. There are many types of accidents and incidents that our Utah personal injury lawyer can help you with. Here are the types of cases we handle:
- Bike accidents
- Bus accidents
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Dog bites/attacks
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls
The injuries people suffer from these accidents range from minor to life changing. It is possible that you will never be the same. When we ask the liable party’s insurance company for compensation, we take into consideration the amount of suffering you have undergone and we fight hard to get you a compensation reward that reflects that.
Tips for a Successful Claim
Our hope is that you will walk away from this taking valuable information. After your injury, it is important for you to take the proper steps to make sure you are going to have a strong case. Here are a few tips for a strong and successful personal injury claim.
- Seek Medical Attention – You should do this as soon as possible. Your health is so much more important than anything. Our top concern is you getting back to normal after your accident; you should be seeking medical attention if needed. Do not try to brush off the pain and walk away from the accident. In doing so, you run the risk of seriously harming yourself. Also, what you need to know is that if you delay or avoid going to see the doctor, the liable party’s insurance company will take that as an opportunity to deny you compensation and claim you don’t need it.
- Collect Any Evidence – Every scene of any accident has evidence that needs to be collected. If you were hurt in a slip and fall, there was a cause to that and you should get a photo of it. If there was an auto accident, there were probably witnesses and you should get their contact information. If you are too injured to do anything, you can call on a friend or family member. You can even hire an attorney who may be available to get to the scene of the incident and collect the evidence for you. Anything that you think is important pertaining to the accident, you should get a picture of.
- Statute of Limitations – There is an allotted amount of time for you to bring your claim or to settle it in civil court. In Utah, you have four years from the date of the accident to do this or you will be barred from receiving compensation. It is not a loose rule, and once that date passes, there is nothing anyone can do to fix it. Four years might be a long time, but it is not wise to wait to bring your claim. Your witnesses may forget important details, your evidence might disappear, and your case will subsequently be weakened.
- Hire an Attorney – To help make sure you are on track with everything, it is wise to hire an attorney early on. They will take over communication with the insurance company so that they can’t bully you into a low settlement offer. They will take the weight of this personal injury case off of your shoulders.
