How Can an Attorney Help Me?

Our West Valley City personal injury lawyers will work to demonstrate the other party’s fault by telling your side of the story. We investigate the events by collecting evidence, gathering eyewitness testimonies, procuring medical records, and calling in experts if your case has to go to trial.

Will I Have to Go to Trial In Court?

Many times, cases don’t go to trial and end up settled out of court. You don’t want to be a victim twice by not getting what you deserve from the insurance companies or other party’s lawyers. They may offer you a settlement that appears to be good at first but is actually less than is needed or deserved. Having a West Valley City personal injury attorney working on your behalf is the easiest way to make sure your best interests are taken into account.

Sometimes all it takes is showing that you are willing to go to trial and the other side will begin to negotiate more honestly. Once the court date gets set, the other party’s attorneys and insurance providers become more eager to settle without going to court.

Should I Act Quickly?

Yes! Acting quickly is essential as it gives your lawyer time to get evidence and create a case that clearly shows the other party is at fault. Delaying could end up allowing the other parties to avoid being held liable.

Some injuries in Utah have a very small statute of limitations, and that means you can’t pursue them after a certain amount of time has passed. Once that time frame ends, your case could be thrown out of court and never even be heard.

Eligible Damages for Financial Compensation

Every injury case is different. Sometimes compensation isn’t possible, and other cases have a very high chance of getting a fair settlement. Expenses and damages related to your injury that can be included in your case:

  • Any Loss of Wages
  • Past and Future Medical Expenses
  • Detriment to your Marriage
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of or Decreased Enjoyment of Life
  • Loss of Life 
  • Monetary Loss to Your Spouse and Your Dependents
