Below is a list of frequently asked questions we hear from our clients. Read our responses and call us if you would like to discuss your specific concern.

Do I have a case?

You may be able to pursue a legal claim if your injuries were a result of negligence or reckless actions. This may include being injured in car accidents, in truck accidents, by defective products or by other type of accidents caused by someone else.

How much is my case worth?

This depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and the impact your injuries have on your life. You may be able to receive compensation to help pay for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Do I need a lawyer?

You can try to handle your case on your own, but we would not recommend it. Personal injury laws are complex and require in-depth knowledge of the legal process to ensure your rights and future are protected. We have experience handling these claims and will work hard to find the best outcome to help you move forward with your life.

Do I have to settle my claim with the insurance company?

Do not sign any settlement with the insurance company until all of your options have been explored. We will protect your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident.

When do I need to file a claim?

You need to file your personal injury claim within the statute of limitations in Utah. This is usually within four years of the date of the injury. It is best to explore your legal options and pursue a claim as soon as possible after an injury to prevent problems with your claim.

Does every claim go to court?

Not necessarily. We work hard to find the best outcome in your case. In some cases, this may mean going to trial while in other cases obtaining a full and fair settlement may be possible.
