Salt Lake City Car Accident Attorney

Utah Department of Public Safety compiles crash data, then prepares helpful fact sheets which can be used to analyze better ways to avoid vehicular accidents. Between 2012-2016, speed was the number one catalyst behind motor vehicle incidents leading to death, accounting for 40% of Utah’s total. Drunk drivers, distracted drivers and failure to yield round out a comprehensive list of vehicular fatalities.

The Jardine Law Offices handles simple, or complex, automobile accidents involving minor injuries, or those leading to death. As Salt Lake City car accidents attorneys, we take pride in comprehensive accident victim litigation. Unlike ‘settlement mills’ which are designed to shuffle victims into settlements and down the road quickly, we take a holistic approach to your car accident claim. We refuse to settle for anything less than the maximum value of your vehicle crash.

Accidents Have Serious Consequences for All

Car accidents don’t just impact victims; they cause statewide insurance premiums to rise, force at fault drivers into a huge financial mess, and create pandemonium for victims’ families already struggling to survive. Those are the socioeconomic ramifications of vehicle accidents, so who else suffers?

Many times, our Salt Lake City car accidents attorneys find that present day car accidents may cause future drivers to face much tougher laws. In some cases, states have contended that receiving drivers licenses later, and ending driving privileges earlier in life, may curtail car accidents’ frequencies.

The Jardine Law Offices find that car accident stemmed from:

  • Intoxicated drivers or those under the influence of drugs.
  • Drivers with little, if any, experience behind wheel.
  • Distracted drivers, more specifically those texting or attempting to pick up an object dropped on the floor.
  • Motorists that seem to be more in a hurry than others.
  • Motorists who failed to yield at crosswalks.
  • Commercial drivers who lose control of their rigs, and any cargo they’re pulling.

No car accident ends idyllically. There’s no trophy, special consolation prize, or title change one receives by involving others in a car accident, or being injured themselves. Once the dust settles, the startling realization that one may lose wages, appendages and quite possibly their driving privileges sets in.

5/5

Joseph & Peter go above and beyond to get your desired outcome. They listened to everything that I needed and were able to get the outcome I had to have. They actually achieved my requested outcome, which I realized was not good enough for my circumstances. They then went back to court and somehow got everything that I needed a second time. In addition to doing everything I asked of them, they also gave me a huge discount when it was all said and done. The front office representative (Lorena) is very friendly. Lorena, Peter and Joseph are all wonderful to communicate with either over the phone or in person. Hands down, the best law office along the Wasatch Front. 10/10 would recommend.
