When you sustain injuries during a Utah car accident, you have two possibilities for obtaining any compensatory damages. You may either file a claim with an insurance company or you may file a claim of personal injury in civil court. Utah adheres to no-fault insurance laws, which require drivers to carry certain amounts of personal injury protection.
Before you can file a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance carrier or file a claim, you must first file a claim with your insurance company. There are a few factors that could exempt you from this rule, such as permanent disabilities or impairment, dismemberment, permanent disfigurement, and medical costs that exceed $3,000.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable car accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible.
