What Is Your Experience Guiding Clients Through The Personal Injury Recovery Process In Utah?
Our expertise stems from extensive involvement on both sides of a personal injury case. We have the unique advantage of personal experience, having been victims of an auto accident ourselves. This dual perspective has contributed significantly to understanding our clients’ experiences.
Our practice focuses on understanding our client’s emotions, frustrations, and concerns arising in personal injury claims. We believe in frequent and transparent communication throughout the process, including setting proper expectations and providing realistic assessments on whether a proposed settlement amount or timeline is attainable.
What Are The Common Questions People Have When Filing A Personal Injury Claim In Utah?
Handling Personal Injury Claims In Utah
When you find yourself filing a personal injury claim in Utah, specific questions are likely to surface:
- “How much is my personal injury case worth?”
- “How long will the personal injury claim process take?”
Finally, we often encounter questions about fair compensation for property damage. For instance, clients often wonder if an insurance company’s valuation for their damaged car is appropriate, especially if they owe more than the insurance company offers.
How Do I Start A Personal Injury Claim After Being Injured In An Accident?
Initiating a personal injury claim after an accident should start with immediate medical attention. It is crucial to understand that any delay in treatment could negatively impact your case.
Many accident victims hesitate to seek immediate medical attention due to worry about the cost. But it’s important to remember that your insurance will cover the first $3,000 of your medical bills in Utah, regardless of who is at fault. So, don’t hesitate to seek treatment right after an accident.
What Are The Common Tactics Insurance Companies Use To Deny Or Limit Injury Claims?
Insurance companies often use certain strategies to limit or deny injury claims and focus on delays in treatment.
For example, suppose your accident occurred on January 1st, and you didn’t seek treatment until February 1st. In that case, the insurance company might use that delay against you. The insurers could argue that if you were injured, you would have sought medical treatment immediately.
The insurance company can use any gaps or pauses in your treatment can be used to diminish the value of your case. If you’ve been undergoing treatment for two months, then paused for another two months before resuming, the insurance company may argue that such inconsistencies reduce the validity of your claim.
Insurers often attempt to shift blame. Even when their client is the most at fault, they may argue that you share some responsibility for the incident.
What Happens If I Cannot Get A Reasonable Settlement From The Insurance Company?
When you cannot reach a reasonable settlement with the insurance company, you decide whether to proceed. As your legal counsel, if we believe that the insurance company’s offer is unfair, we recommend filing a lawsuit against the other driver.
While the insurance company is responsible for the lawsuit, the legal action is directed at the driver who caused the accident. Many law firms avoid litigation and accept an insurance company’s best offer. At Melton Law, we are trial attorneys; we know the most effective way to secure compensation for you is through a lawsuit. So, if an acceptable settlement is not forthcoming, we recommend litigation.
At What Point Should I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney After An Accident In Utah?
You should engage a personal injury attorney immediately after an accident. An attorney can help you with:
- Finding appropriate treatment options,
- Liaising with your physicians, and
- Placing a lien on your medical bills
We’ll place a lien on your medical bills, so you won’t have to pay any while you are still receiving medical treatment. Without an attorney, you may continue to receive bills and be unaware of the process for delaying these payments.
Additionally, having a lawyer represent you from the onset can prevent inadvertent statements to insurance companies that could harm your case. Having an attorney from the very beginning is vital for effective navigation through the personal injury process.
What Do I Need To Know About Collecting Personal Injury Evidence?
Evidence is crucial because it can make or break your case. Our team of skilled legal professionals know how to gather the evidence needed to help you build a solid personal injury case. Evidence can be any of the following:
- Hospital, doctor’s office, and other medical facility’s records,
- Photographs of the scene of the accident or incident,
- Witness statements,
- Any surveillance or security camera footage,
- Police and emergency crew reports,
- And much more.
Our attorneys will ensure no stone is left unturned when collecting the necessary evidence to support your claim. We have the experience of knowing which pieces of evidence are the most valuable and relevant to your case. Whether obtaining accident reports, analyzing surveillance footage, or consulting medical experts, we will work hard to gather all the evidence needed to strengthen your claim.
Gathering evidence is necessary for a personal injury claim lawsuit. Evidence provides the necessary validation for your personal injury claims, proving the negligence or fault of the responsible party. With Melton Law on your side, you can rest knowing that we will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice for you.
