Our Injury Lawyers
Craig Swapp & Associates personal injury lawyers are licensed to practice in nine western states, as well as the District of Columbia. Over the years, we have gained the litigation experience necessary to take any case to mediation, arbitration, or trial. We can handle any jurisdiction, whether it is local, state, or federal court.
Our accident attorneys’ ability to successfully and aggressively litigate personal injury cases means that insurance companies, government agencies, and other defendants are more likely to negotiate fair and full settlements for our clients.
Although our attorneys have graduated from some of the finest law schools in the country and have passed rigorous bar examinations, we know it’s important that they continue to fine-tune their legal skills. Every few months, our attorneys attend certified legal courses to keep current with the law and to learn the latest and best legal strategies. Our aim is to make sure our attorneys have every tool available to benefit our clients’ legal interests.
How We Make Things Easier on You
Major components of personal injury cases are both physical and psychological. You may still be in something akin to shock, having had your foundation shaken by misfortune or injury. After an accident, you may be paralyzed with concerns of how you’ll be able to deal with this financially, whom you can trust, and what you should say to a claims adjuster. Depending on the severity of your injury, this accident may affect you for the rest of your life.
A Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer from Craig Swapp and Associates will understand that this might be a very painful, frustrating, and vulnerable time for you. We know that the prospect of taking on a legal case might seem like an uphill battle and will most likely not be what you want to deal with right now.
In reality, most people are relieved once the legal process is underway and they know they no longer have to shoulder the burden alone. We can assure you that once we start working with you, most of the work will be in our hands.
The result is usually a settlement from an insurance company, either yours, theirs, or both. If more parties were involved, then that applies as well. Calling to speak to us is free with no commitment on your part.
How Our Staff Deals with Your Case
We purposefully handpick a team who not only has the solid legal background and the drive to fight for what you deserve, but we also make sure our staff members are empathetic in addition to being highly effective. Our testimonials on this website prove that treating each case with the utmost care, professionalism, and gravity is our priority.
Perhaps you’d like to make sure the perpetrator is held accountable for his actions or perhaps you’d like to see whether a financial reward is possible. It is vital that you contact Craig Swapp and Associates as soon as you can so that you can discuss your case with a Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer. Evidence may disappear or be covered up if you wait.
Also, if you have been injured, we want to make sure you’re handling your medical bills and doctor appointments in the best way possible. Utah has some aggressive statutes of limitation, and you don’t want time to run out on you as well.
All Craig Swapp & Associates accident attorneys are assisted by trained paralegals and other legal assistants who are eager to help clients with their questions and help monitor the progress of the case. If you have any questions about your case, you are welcome to contact your attorney or one of his or her legal assistants.
Our aim is to keep you fully informed about the progress of your case and to ensure that your rights are fully protected. Since you’re entering the unknown, we make sure you’re aware of what to expect going forward. We do not take the trust you have put in us for granted.
Will I Have to Go to Trial?
Working with a Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer doesn’t necessarily mean your case has to go to trial. A settlement is reached in most personal injury cases before a court date becomes necessary. Sometimes, though, the best way to get what you deserve means going to court—or at least making it clear that you’re willing to by filing a lawsuit. A Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer can tell you if your situation would warrant one.
Why You Shouldn’t Deal with Insurance Companies Alone
From the first time you speak with an insurance company, either yours or the other party’s, they will be taking notes and trying to find ways to blame some of the cause of the injury on you.
Utah follows comparative negligence laws, so if you are partially responsible, you only get a partial payment. If the court finds you more than 50 percent responsible, you won’t be awarded a settlement at all. We have dealt with cases such as these and know how to get you the most compensation from insurance companies.

- Current and future lost wages and income
- Medical and physical therapy bills

- Loss of enjoyment
- Financial loss affecting spouse and dependents
- Loss or reduction of marital relationship
