We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Zachary Shumway, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Car accidents are a shockingly common sight in our state. Utah car accidents range from inconsequential fender benders to serious or fatal collisions. Oftentimes, the injuries endured by car accident victims are so severe they require months, or even years, to fully recover.
If you or a family member was injured in a car accident and are fighting to figure out how you are going to handle the unexpected financial responsibility, you should reach out to a South Jordan car accident lawyer.
Utah obeys modified comparative fault laws. This means that you are eligible to seek damages as long as the at-fault driver is liable for a larger percentage of fault than you. Should the jury determine that you were liable for a percentage of the accident, your damages will be reduced by that amount.
Utah’s auto insurance laws are complex and take time to fully understand, especially if you are trying to recover from a serious injury. A Utah personal injury attorney can guide you through the claims process, from consultation to settlement. That includes handling any investigation, calculations, and paperwork needed to get you the maximum amount of compensation.
When injuries happen in a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence, victims need to seek legal counsel from a car accident attorney in Kaysville. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
