With a Roy car crash lawyer’s help, you can get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

Car accidents are often the result of another driver’s negligent actions on the road. Unfortunately, incidents like these can leave innocent motorists injured and saddled with expenses like medical bills and vehicle repairs.

If that’s your situation, you should know you have a right to pursue compensation for the suffering and financial hardships you’ve endured. But filing an accident injury claim is no walk in the park.

In addition to piles of paperwork, you could face shady insurance company tactics and negligent parties who are reluctant to admit that they are to blame for your injuries. But you can remove that stress and reduce your chances of failing by enlisting the help of a Roy car accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates.

Who’s at Fault?

When you team up with a Roy car wreck lawyer, the first thing he or she will probably want to do is determine whose fault your accident was.

While the other driver might seem like the immediate answer, other parties could be to blame, too. Below are some additional parties you could name in your car accident injury claim depending on the circumstances of your accident:

  • A Manufacturer – If a part on any car involved in your accident malfunctioned and caused the crash, you might be able to pursue personal injury compensation from the manufacturer of that part.
  • A Government Agency – If a road hazard caused your crash, you might be able to hold accountable the government entity responsible for keeping the roads safe for travel.
  • A Third Driver – This one can get complicated, but it does happen sometimes. If a driver caused a second driver to swerve into your path and hit you, for example, you might be able to name the first driver in your claim.

Insurance Companies May Not Be On Your Side 

When medical expenses and other billings impact car, motorcycle, and trucking accident victims, they may expect to rely on their insurance companies instead of the at-fault party. Utah is a no-fault state, meaning people injured in car accidents can seek a timely settlement, no matter who’s at fault. 

But insurers aren’t always willing to compensate you. Automobile accidents are expensive, and they may try not to compensate you when you’re hurt. 

That’s where lawyers can help cases like yours succeed. We’ve worked with insurers before to get the full settlement our clients deserve, and we’ll work to get the complete settlement you’re due. 

Receiving Compensation

For most Roy car accident victims, the primary reason to file an injury claim is to receive compensation to help them deal with the financial setbacks tied to their crash. Those financial setbacks can be severe and far-reaching.

If your claim is successful, you might be able to receive damages for the following types of loss:

  • Current medical bills and expected future expenses
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Wages you lost during your recovery
  • Wages you will lose because you’re unable to return to work
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Your attorney will assess the severity of your losses to determine an appropriate value to place on your claim. Without a lawyer’s help, you might fail to predict future medical costs that could harm your future financial wellbeing.
