Salt Lake City Personal Injury Attorney

We Have Settled Thousands of Cases Worth Millions of Dollars

On a daily basis, we go about our lives by engaging in professional and recreational activities; these activities, however, aren’t completely devoid of any potential for disaster or injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, a skilled Salt Lake City personal injury attorney may be able to help you recover compensation for your damages.

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can result in serious physical and emotional injuries for the drivers, passengers, and pedestrians involved. If you have been injured in an auto accident, you may be able to get compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. First, your Salt Lake City personal injury attorney will attempt to reach a fair settlement with the insurance company. If this doesn’t work, a lawsuit may be necessary.

Slip and Fall

A slip and fall accident occurs when someone trips over an object or obstacle that is in that person’s path but shouldn’t be there. The owner of the premises where the condition exists may be held liable for any injuries that arise out of a slip and fall accident, since the owner has the responsibility of keeping his or her premises safe. However, if the injured person didn’t watch where he was going or was in any other way partially responsible for the accident, damages may be reduced in proportion to the injured person’s level of fault. This is called comparative negligence.

Wrongful Death

If the wrongdoing or negligence of someone else has resulted in the death of a loved one, you may be able to recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Keep in mind, however, that you must file a lawsuit within 2 years of the person’s death; otherwise, the statute of limitations will toll, and you will be barred from suing. There may be limitations on wrongful death claims pursuant to the state’s workers’ compensation and medical malpractice laws.

Dog Bites

There’s a good reason why dogs are called man’s best friends: as pets, they provide companionship, protection, and unconditional love. However, a dog owner may be held civilly liable for any dog bites inflicted on other people. The dog bite law in the state of Utah operates under strict liability; thus, it is not necessary to prove that prior to the attack, the dog owner knew or should have known of his or her dog’s vicious propensities.

If you’ve been physically or emotionally injured due to a dog attack, slip and fall accident, wrongful death, or auto accident, you will need the legal guidance and advocacy of a skilled Salt Lake City personal injury attorney who can successfully fight for the compensation you deserve.
