Insurance companies are not on your side.

We are not here to try and villainize anyone. However, insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. Insurance companies have a financial interest in paying you as little as possible for your injuries. Automobile insurance is supposed to step in and help take care of people who have been injured or suffered a loss as a result of an auto accident. Sadly, insurance companies often take advantage of victims by offering a quick, low-ball settlement for personal injuries and damage to the vehicle or by attempting to deny a claim and abandon the victim completely. Don’t let insurance companies walk away from their responsibilities. Make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, rehabilitative therapy, vehicle damage, lost wages, and other costs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I do to help my attorney and case?

After you have received proper medical attention and there are many things you can do immediately after your accident, and the following weeks to come.

  1. Do your best to help your attorney gather proper evidence for your case. This means taking pictures, gathering witnesses to your accidents, and keeping all medical receipts; bills and other car crash related documents.
  2. Do not talk to anyone about your case. This includes what you say in a police report as well as agreeing or singing anything an insurance company puts before you. Small mistakes during this phase of your accident can damage your case and reduce your chances of a fair settlement.
  3. Finally, keep in contact with your attorney. This means establishing an open line of communication. The legal process is very time demanding, it helps your attorney and therefore you when you are available to speak with your attorney. We all want to avoid situations where the progress of a case is halted because someone cannot be reached.

I would like to talk to an attorney but I cannot afford one, what can I do?

Our initial consultations are free. It doesn’t cost you a thing to give us a call or fill out our case evaluation sheet. Either option will allow you to speak with a legal professional in a no obligation to hire setting where your options and a potential case can be discussed. If our law firm and you end up working together then we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not collect any money unless we settle your case or are awarded money at trial on your behalf.

What should I do if the other driver was at fault and does not have insurance?

If the other driver was not insured, you can make a claim under your uninsured motorist coverage of your own policy. Do not be afraid to contact your insurance company, if the accident was not your fault, your rates cannot go up because of the accident. It has always been my stance that when you work with an attorney you will get the best outcome possible. Although you may be able to be compensated by your own insurance company, you may also be required to arbitrate your claim and will need to contact an attorney right away.

An insurance agency wants me to sign/do/or agree with something I am not comfortable with, what should I do?

Do no sign or do anything without contacting an attorney. You are not legally obligated to do anything with the insurance companies without legal representation. Even your own insurance company can and will use anything on the record for reasons that may not be in your best interest.

What is my case worth?

This depends on several important factors. These factors include but are not limited to:

  1. Your out of pocket expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, and any other direct or indirect expense that is a result of the car crash.
  2. Anything permanent that negatively affects your life. This can be disfigurement or disability that results in a loss of quality of life.
  3. Unfortunately death or a similar situation that calls for the retirement from work.

We work with you to make certain all the costs of your case have been analyzed to ensure your rights to compensation will be upheld.

What are some common causes of a car crash?

This is a very interesting question, especially when analyzing it within the scope of Utah and Idaho. Both states face unique challenges on the road that many states do not. These challenges all help annually to contribute to the number of accidents we see on the road. Including:

  1. Inattentive driver: This is probably that most common of all reasons for a car crash. This can mean many different things but most commonly refers to a driver talking or texting on their cell phone, eating or doing their make-up, or simply daydreaming and not paying attention to what is happening on the road.
  2. Intoxicated driver: Unfortunately we also see this is a common cause of many automobile accidents. When drivers are under the influence of either drugs or alcohol it usually results in a loss of life.
  3. Road and weather conditions: This is really where Utah and Idaho drivers face unique challenges. Both states are known for their erratic weather. Rain, snow, sleet, and hail all contribute to accidents. Drivers cannot properly see all hazards on the road, or the slide into another car, any way you look at it our difficult weather definitely adds to our yearly accident toll.

The reasons for a car crash are as numerous as any other accident. There are some common causes but ultimately no two accidents are the same. Even if police reports or insurance companies may lead you to believe that a case is cut and dry you need a third party professional to analyze your Utah car crash.
