Utah Car Accident Lawyer
Don’t allow a negligent driver’s poor decision to leave you buried in medical debt and other losses. Get the compensation you are due by seeking help from a Utah car accident lawyer.
After a crash, probably the only thing you want to do is get your life back to normal and put the wreck behind you. Unfortunately, the injuries and vehicle damage caused by car accidents usually require a substantial amount of money to recover from, and if your injuries were serious enough, you might be looking at either a long road to recovery or permanent changes to your lifestyle. This is where your insurance company is supposed to step in, but getting a fair settlement can be a challenge all its own.
By working with a Utah car accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates, you can get the full settlement that you’re entitled to from the insurance. We won’t be satisfied with merely getting a settlement; we want to make certain that you get fully compensated for what you’ve been through.
No-Fault Auto Insurance in Utah
Because Utah is a no-fault state for car insurance, it creates an additional step on the road to full compensation. You’ll first need to file a claim with your own personal injury protection (PIP) policy before you can seek damages from the at-fault party. Sadly, even your own insurance is likely to lowball your payout, but your Utah car accident lawyer can help you with them, too.
If your medical bills total more than $3,000; your injuries involve permanent disfigurement, impairment, or disability; or you suffered dismemberment, then you’re legally allowed to pursue a personal injury claim against those responsible. This is often necessary after serious crashes because PIP coverage tends to have fairly low policy limits and won’t cover all damages.
Unfortunately, the other driver’s insurance company is likely to be even more difficult to deal with. They’ll do everything possible to push blame for the crash onto you, as the more fault they can pin on you, the less they’ll have to pay you. With that in mind, we’ll collect all available evidence so that a compelling case can be built that thoroughly demonstrates the other driver’s fault and minimizes your own.
Collect All of the Crash Damages You Are Owed
A personal injury claim will enable you to seek compensation for all of the financial losses and non-economic damages you have experienced because of the collision and your injuries. Your Utah car accident lawyer will work in unison with your doctor to arrive at an accurate assessment of how much money your recovery will require.
This could include any of the following damages that apply to your case:
- Current and future medical expenses for surgeries, treatments, and check-ups
- Lost income and reduced earning potential
- Cost to repair or replace your vehicle
- Alternative transportation expenses and caretaker wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
