Have the thoughtless actions of another person harmed you? Are you undergoing physical, emotional, mental, and financial hardships due to your injury? If so, the law in Utah may consider you the victim of a personal injury.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

Perhaps it is obvious who is responsible for your injury, and that person or company is covered by insurance. Even though it might seem that a personal injury attorney is unnecessary in this instance, insurance companies can be slow to respond and less than forthcoming when it comes to offering complete and fair compensation to victims. To ensure that you receive what you need to recover financially, you need to have a personal injury attorney fighting for you.

On the other hand, it may not be crystal-clear which party is responsible and accountable for the injuries you have received. Without question, a personal injury attorney is essential in this case. An attorney can assist in isolating and understanding the specifics of an injury-causing event and thereby determine who is liable for the injuries you have received.

In either case, remember that the insurance company is not on your side. The legal team at Fielding Law in Salt Lake City is educated and skilled in using the law to compel insurance companies to provide you with the compensation you require and deserve.

You can concentrate on recovering from your accident while your attorney arranges for the just compensation you are entitled to obtain.

Circumstances that Require a Personal Injury Attorney

It is always beneficial to review the details of your injury with an attorney to help you determine the strength of your claim. However, certain circumstances may strongly indicate that consulting with a personal injury attorney is vital. Be sure to contact a personal injury lawyer for assistance if you have experienced the following consequences of an injury.  

Accidents and injuries which require medical attention 

Obviously, the medical expenses incurred from initial visits to the hospital and to the doctor could soon come to a large total. Additionally, if your injuries result in repeated medical visits or long-term care, the costs for your needs could sky-rocket.

Following any injury or accident, one of the most important steps that you should take is to receive medical attention and care promptly. Although your injury may seem minor at first, symptoms can intensify with time, and severe complications might not be obvious until some time later. Yet, having a medical examination to document your pain, bruising, etc. will establish the facts concerning your injuries. This is crucial if you later decide to pursue compensation for damages incurred.

Experiencing pain and suffering due to your injuries

Pain and suffering are legal concepts that are best addressed with the aid of a personal injury attorney. Unlike medical costs, which can be quantified with bills, receipts, and payment plans, the financial impact that results from a person’s suffering and pain isn’t as easily measured. Nonetheless, Utah considers these damages as valid and worthy of compensation.

Having a personal injury attorney will help you receive what is appropriate and just. Personal injury lawyers can prevent an insurance company or another party from belittling and minimizing your compensation for pain and suffering.

Pain-and-suffering damages can be pursued for the following reasons:

  • Disfigurement or disability
  • Public embarrassment or shame
  • Mental affliction
  • Emotional adversity
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Dysphoria
  • Sexual dysfunction

The following is a list of some of the more prominent indicators that you should speak with a personal injury attorney:

  • A physical injury occurred as a result of the accident
  • A hospital stay resulted from the injury, or the injury otherwise created a substantial medical expense
  • You missed a considerable amount of work due to the accident
  • You received an unfair denial of your claim by the insurance company
  • There has been an unreasonable delay by the insurance company to respond to you or process your claim
  • There is uncertainty as to who is at fault for the accident
  • Multiple parties were involved in the accident
  • The insurance company is pressuring you to approve a settlement offer for less compensation than you anticipated

Unfortunately, insurance companies and other accountable parties may understate their accountability and attempt to reduce the amount of compensation for the injured party. Yet, when the injured party is represented by a capable and formidable lawyer, the accountable parties often become attentive and forthcoming with fair and appropriate compensation.

This being the case, it is of the utmost importance to consult with a personal injury lawyer before legally coming to an agreement with an insurance company. The Salt Lake City personal injury attorneys at Fielding Law are here to help you take on the insurance company so that you receive the best possible outcome for your claim.
