When you are injured, it is natural to be concerned about how the injury will affect your life. In addition to getting medical help to tend to your immediate needs and trying to cope with the injury itself, you may also be concerned about what impact the injury will have on your life in the future. For instance, you may worry that you may not fully recover from your injuries, that you will need ongoing and expensive care, or that the injury may interfere with your ability to work.
These are valid concerns, and they may be especially pressing when your personal injury was caused by the negligence or intentionally wrongful behavior of another. It is devastating to know that an injury could have been prevented if someone else had just been a bit more careful.
While nothing can undo an injury, Utah law does give injured persons a way to hold the person who caused the injury responsible. Under the law, a person who is negligent or who acts improperly and causes harm will need to compensate the victim for the financial costs of that harm. A Utah personal injury attorney can help injured victims or their family members secure the maximum compensation to which they are entitled.
People are injured in many different ways. Examples of common injury cases include:
- Automobile accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Construction accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and fall accidents
In these and other situations where negligence contributed to the injury or harm, a Utah injury attorney will help you to identify the responsible parties and take legal action against them.
The sooner the better.
If you think you are injured and need medical care, it is time to call an injury attorney. The sooner you do, the sooner you can have peace of mind that your interests are being protected.
We handle the insurance companies so you can focus on getting better. There are a few obligations that you may not know about imposed by your insurance company that if you fail to follow, may void your coverage.
You also may have thousands of dollars available to you through Medical Payments coverage with your own insurance; however, your insurance company doesn’t always tell you about this coverage. There is always a time period to access these benefits, and if you wait too long, you will likely lose out on that money.
Also, it’s important that you don’t tell the at-fault driver’s insurance company anything harmful to your case. They will contact you and try to convince you to sign releases, provide statements, and concede damaging points; all of this is to be avoided.
Finally, it is really important to get you to the right doctors for your injuries as soon as possible. Insurance companies love to argue that an injured client really isn’t that injured if they wait too long to seek out medical attention or go to the wrong kind of doctors.
