Motor Vehicle Injuries in Utah

The aftermath of an automobile collision is terrible. To further complicate matters, insurance adjusters sometimes seek to pressure or coax victims into settling their claims as quickly as possible for less money than they are entitled to get. It is vital that you do not allow a notoriously stingy insurance company the chance to coerce you into accepting a settlement that neither you nor the insurance company knows comes close to what you are lawfully entitled.

They will do everything within their not-insignificant power to encourage you to agree to a settlement before you even learn the severity of your injuries. This might occur prior to receiving medical care for your injuries.

If you were injured in a vehicle accident, you undoubtedly have a number of important questions on the following topics:

What will you do to cover all of your medical expenses?
When do you anticipate being able to return to full-time employment?
What sort of compensation can you anticipate from your insurance carrier if you make a claim?
