No one likes to get in a car accident. Even when no one is injured, it is frustrating and inconvenient, and the fallout from it can completely derail your entire day, month, or even year.
Having said that, most auto accidents do result in some form of injury. Injury car accidents happen every day in Utah, with car accidents happening six times each hour, on average, daily.
Whether the injury is a sore neck or back or something substantially worse, it is important for people that have been in a car accident to engage a highly skilled and professional auto accident attorney, to help you to understand what kinds of rights you have, or discover any compensation you may be entitled to.
There are a lot of auto attorneys throughout Salt Lake City and Utah trying to grab the attention of people who have been involved in car accidents. But too often they promise the moon and fail to deliver — costing you valuable time and more of your much-needed funds in the process.
Why do they so often fall short? The main reason is that all too many Utah car accident attorneys are not trial lawyers. And of those who are trial lawyers, too many avoid appeals courts.

Most people deal with a lot of unneeded stress in their day to day lives that they don’t even realize they don’t have to live with. The fact of the matter is that even with traumatizing incidents, experiences where we feel an overload of stress is unavoidable, we still have a lot of options we can choose that will help us take control of our lives.
As personal injury attorneys, we know how to strengthen your case more than average auto attorneys, and we can finagle the compensation out of the insurance companies greedy little hands so you can finally have some peace of mind. You can qualify for legal assistance dealing with your injury if you have suffered from ANY of the following is caused by your accident:
- Medical bills
- Expensive Treatments
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Insurance companies try to give the lowest possible settlement for every case. They are not your friends. They are not trying to help you. Insurance adjusters are trying to pay out the least amount possible.
While the Utah statute of limitations gives you up to 4 years to file a lawsuit to recover damages for a Utah car accident injury, it is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Preparing a case is a very time-sensitive matter.
Your car accident case begins the second after the accident. Everything is important for shaping and directing your case. Any and all information you gather at the scene will be important to your case.
In Utah, every auto insurance policy must include personal injury protection coverage or PIP. PIP coverage provides at least $3,000 for reasonable medical expenses, through your own insurance company, independent of fault.
It is important to exhaust PIP coverage in order to make claims against the other driver for such things as lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Therefore, getting the attention you need immediately is very important, even if you are not sure how hurt you are. Otherwise, your case could be limited or barred.
Utah also uses the comparative fault standard for determining recovery. This is largely a legal question that an experienced Utah car accident lawyer can help figure out. It is very important that you get an auto accident lawyer as soon as possible so that your case is not messed up and you can focus on healing.
