If your loved one was in a car accident and put into a coma by an injury, you are probably frightened and searching for answers. Likewise, if you have recently come out of a coma, you might also be wondering what your legal rights are. Craig Swapp & Associates has the answers.

To discuss your case, your options, and how to recover compensation from the at-fault party, contact a Salt Lake City car accident coma lawyer in our office.

Is Your Family Member in a Coma?

If your family member was injured in a crash and is now in a coma, contact our office right away. This is a complicated situation that has multiple layers of legal complexity. First, your comatose family member needs to receive medical care that will potentially be ongoing for some time. If the insurance company is refusing to pay for the care, let us know and we can negotiate with them.

As long as the coma victim is alive, you will likely be unable to sue on his or her behalf unless the individual is a minor or you have power of attorney. If he or she passes away while comatose, you can likely file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the estate. In any case, contacting us as soon as possible allows us to prepare for the claim—however it turns out.

Did You Wake Up from a Coma?

Getting into an auto accident is frightening and devastating, regardless of the injury suffered. However, if your accident was severe enough to cause a temporary coma, you weren’t just injured—you missed out on an entire period of your life. To ensure that you are compensated for this loss in addition to having all medical bills paid, you need a Salt Lake City car accident coma lawyer to represent you.

We can sue the party who caused your accident and hold them accountable for the harm they caused you. By taking care of all legal aspects of your case, you can focus on recovering and getting back to your life.

We Can File a Lawsuit

Before filing a lawsuit on your behalf, we will need to know what happened in the lead-up to the crash and conduct research to determine who was negligent. Someone else’s fault must be established in order for you to recover compensation. If more than one party is to blame, we can name them all in your claim.

During the discovery process, we will request relevant documents, conduct depositions to ask questions under oath, review pictures and accident reports, speak with witnesses, and more. The evidence we gather will be used to demonstrate why you deserve compensation.
