When a car crash leaves you with devastating injuries, you can get compensated if someone else was responsible. Find out how to handle your case by speaking with a Millcreek car accident lawyer.

Getting hurt in an auto wreck can mean big changes for your life and finances. The worst crash injuries, such as brain and spinal damage, can leave you permanently disabled, in need of ongoing medical care, and unable to continue in your chosen career.

When someone else caused the collision that left you in this situation, you deserve to be compensated. While the no-fault car insurance required by Utah law will provide you with some funds regardless of who was to blame, these policies tend to max out quickly.

A Millcreek car accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you take your case to the other driver and his or her insurer. You shouldn’t be satisfied with a settlement that’s anything less than every penny you’re owed, and we won’t be, either.


Naming the Responsible Parties

In order for your personal injury claim to be successful, we’ll first need to investigate what led to the wreck and identify everyone at fault so that they can be named in your claim. Your compensation requires identifying everyone responsible in order to get the largest settlement possible.

Your Millcreek car accident lawyer will visit the scene of the collision, review medical records and accident reports, and possibly even depose witnesses in order to collect the necessary evidence. These are just a few of the factors that will need to be considered:

  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Distracted driving, such as by cell phone use or eating
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding and other reckless driving behaviors
  • Roads not maintained to safe standards
  • Defective auto parts or tires


Know the Value of Your Claim

Even if the other driver’s insurance makes you a settlement offer early on, you should avoid accepting it until after your Millcreek car accident lawyer has had a chance to review it. We need to make certain that every financial expenses and all lost quality of life is accounted for in your settlement.

If a reasonable offer is not forthcoming, it could be necessary to go to court to fight for a jury verdict. Whichever becomes necessary, we’ll be prepared to present a convincing case and push for all of the damages you could be eligible to recover:

  • Medical bills for treatments, checkups, medication, and equipment
  • Lost income and earning ability
  • Damage to your car
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement and emotional distress
  • Lost enjoyment of life
