During a personal injury case, you will be asked if you would like to take a settlement or if you’d rather go to trial. The answer to this question lies in the details of your case. Overall, the majority of cases do not go to trial and a settlement is reached during one of the pre-trial phases.
While you are certainly under no obligation to have legal representation in order to seek financial compensation for an accident, hiring an attorney has many advantages and will give you a greater chance of acquiring the damages you need to cover your accident-related costs.
Having a trial-tested personal injury attorney on your side can also be reassuring because it means that you will receive professional legal guidance intended to stop you from making mistakes that can keep you from collecting the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.
In Utah, personal injury victims are given four years from the day of their accident to file a claim of personal injury. If you fail to file your case before the statute of limitations expires, courts could refuse to even hear your case.
When injuries happen in a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence, victims need to seek legal counsel from a car accident attorney in Salt Lake City. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
