When someone else causes an accident that leaves you with a catastrophic injury, it can cost you physically, emotionally, and financially. Get compensated for your losses by working with a St. George personal injury lawyer.

If you’ve recently been injured in an accident, you may be facing lots of unforeseen difficulties: diminished physical abilities, high medical bills, or even psychological trauma. An accident can rock your world and leave you wondering how you’re going to carry on and continue doing all the many things you need to accomplish each day. But if you were not at fault, you could be entitled to seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

A personal injury attorney can fight for you to make sure you get the full and fair settlement you deserve. Navigating the insurance landscape can be overwhelming—especially considering that an insurance company is more interested in their own bottom line than getting you every penny you’re owed. A St. George personal injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can review your claim and get you the settlement that you are owed by those at fault.

Types of Catastrophic Injury Scenarios

Personal injury can encompass many different types of cases, including all of the following:

  • Vehicular Accidents – Whether your wreck involved a car, truck, motorcycle, or bus, if you were not at fault, you’re entitled to seek damages from the negligent driver.
  • Premises Liability – Property owners are subject to federal and state laws to ensure that visitors are safe when on their premises. Injuries, illnesses, and even fatalities can occur as a result of a property owner’s negligence.
  • Dog Bites – Almost one in five dog bites leads to infection, which increases the risk of illness or serious disease. If you’ve been harmed due to someone else’s animal-management negligence, you could be entitled to seek damages.
  • Defective Drugs – If your doctor was negligent in prescribing medication, or if the pharmaceutical company did not perform due diligence to make sure that the prescribed medication was safe, you could be entitled to either a malpractice or personal injury claim.
  • Wrongful Death – Though no amount of money can bring your loved one back, you could be entitled to a wrongful death suit if your loved one passed away due to medical malpractice, a grossly negligent act such as drunk driving, or an intentional act such as assault.

Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

When a personal injury claim is filed in Utah, comparative negligence is used to determine who is most at fault for the incident. That means even if you were partially at fault, you could still be entitled to a settlement as long as the other party is deemed more at fault than you. A St. George personal injury lawyer will work with both you and the insurance company to ensure that you receive every penny that you’re owed.

In order to get the fairest settlement possible, we will uncover every single expense and non-economic damage that your serious injury has cost you:

  • Medical treatment expenses, both current and future
  • Lost wages and diminished earning potential
  • Transportation expenses
  • Property damage
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Lost companionship
  • Pain and suffering
