How Much Will It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Salt Lake City, Utah?

At Waddoups Law Personal Injury Attorneys, our Salt Lake City personal injury lawyers understand that, unfortunately, you have sustained injuries due to somebody who failed to act reasonably. Everyone has a duty to act reasonably in their life. When somebody chooses not to act reasonably and injures another person, that conduct allows you to recover your losses through the tort system.

Your team is trained in tort law and all the ins and outs of handling your claim and putting it together. We will help you through the process of pursuing your claim. Sometimes, it will be very stressful; medical bills may pile up, or you may have anxiety or frustration over the claims process.

Even though there is no guarantee of how your claim will be resolved, your team has the experience and has successfully resolved over 90% of the claims we are retained on. Each claim and client is different, but we all have an interest.

Your claim is the personal injury or wrongful death claim. Those claims are not billed hourly by your attorney. Your team works on a contingency fee. If we do not get you a recovery, you owe us no money for the attorney’s time, and we write off all the costs we have incurred in your case. If we do get a recovery, we take our contingency fee according to the contract and any costs we have incurred to advance your case forward. Your team will do everything we can to increase and obtain the compensation you deserve.

The better we build your case, the more compensation we retain for you, which increases the amount of compensation for the work done on your case. Accordingly, we are interested in doing everything we can to build you the strongest case possible under the facts and circumstances of your case to ensure you get all the compensation you deserve. In turn, the higher the amount we can obtain for you in your recovery, the more we do to the contingency nature of the relationship.

Most people cannot afford to pay an attorney weekly or monthly by the hour.

Those who try to do so find out that the attorneys who bill by the hour are usually cost-prohibitive. Most people do not have the resources to pay $5,000 or $10,000 per month to keep their case going. That is why personal injury attorneys do the cases on a contingency basis so an injured party who may be missing work and has a pile of medical bills does not have to now pay an attorney weekly or monthly on an hourly basis to move their case forward. In other words, we are in a case with you and take the risk with you. If you do not recover any compensation, your team does not. In addition, we are not reimbursed for the costs we paid to move your case forward. All of that is simply written off.

We appreciate you contacting our personal injury law office in Salt Lake City, and we look forward to working with you to build the best and strongest case we can for you, given the circumstances and challenges your case may present.

What is My Utah Personal Injury Case Worth?

Clients’ most common question is, “What is my case worth?” Since your team is experienced, they know that the value of your case cannot be adequately determined until all of the information is gathered for your general and special damages. Once all of the information has been provided to your team, your team will analyze the information and discuss the potential value of your case based on the facts of the accident, your injuries, and the treatment you underwent.

After your team receives all of the information and prepares the demand letter, the demand letter will be sent to the responsible insurance company to resolve your case. Your team will attach all necessary documentation to establish your case’s value.

Under Utah law, you are entitled to two broad categories of damages in a personal injury claim. The first type is called special damages. The second type is called general damages. Under each type of damages, there are subparts. Your team will analyze your medical records, talk to you in detail about your injuries, and discuss how these injuries have affected you and your life in the future. Regarding each subcategory involved in your case, your team will discuss the damages in those two broad categories and subparts in the demand letter we submit to the insurance company to resolve your case once you are released from treatment.

  • SPECIAL DAMAGES.

Under Utah law, the broad subparts of your special damages are your past, present, and future medical bills; past, present, and future lost wages; out-of-pocket expenses; and consequential damages. Your team will analyze these subcategories to see which ones apply to your case when they do the demand letter to resolve your case with the insurance company.

  • GENERAL DAMAGES.

Under Utah law, the broad subparts of general damages are typically your physical pain and suffering, emotional pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent impairment/permanent disability, permanent scarring, and an increased likelihood of re-injury or aggravation to a preexisting condition. Your team will analyze your medical records and discuss the various aspects of your subcategories to general damages. All of the subcategories that apply in your case will be addressed in your demand letter to the insurance company when it is time to settle your case.

If you have any questions along the way, please talk with your legal team about any concerns. Our Salt Lake City personal injury lawyers are always here to help.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Utah?

In Utah, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is usually four years from the date of the injury. For example, if you’re hurt in a car or slip-and-fall accident, you must file your claim four years from the accident date.

However, if you are filing a wrongful death claim after the loss of your loved one, you have two years from the date of death to file your claim. The two-year statute also applies to product liability claims.

If a child has been injured, the statute of limitations usually starts when the child turns 18.

It’s best to explore your legal options and pursue a claim as soon as possible to ensure our Salt Lake City personal injury attorneys can begin preserving crucial evidence to help strengthen your claim. The specific statute of limitation is determined by who hurt you and the type of claim you have. This area of the law is complicated. Please immediately contact us after you are injured.

What Steps Should I Take After an Accident with Injuries in Utah?

Whether you were hit by a negligent driver or were hurt on someone else’s property, the steps you take after the incident are essential to your well-being and your personal injury claim’s success.

While the details may differ from incident scene to incident scene, the typical steps most Utah accident and injury victims should take include:

  • Report the Accident

If the accident occurred on a public roadway, report it to the local police department. A police report can provide valuable documentation of the incident. If the accident happened on private property, report it to the owner or manager and ensure the details are recorded in writing.

Be cautious about discussing fault or admitting guilt at the accident scene. Stick to the facts when speaking with the police/property owner or operator or other parties involved.

  • Gather Information

Collect as much information as possible at the accident scene if your injuries allow. This includes obtaining the names, contact information, and insurance details of all parties involved and any witnesses. Take photos of the accident, including vehicle damage, road/property conditions/hazards, and visible injuries.

  • Seek Medical Attention

Your health and safety are the top priorities. Even if you don’t believe your injuries are severe, seeking medical attention is crucial. Some injuries may not be apparent immediately, and documentation of your injuries is vital for any potential legal claims.

Keep detailed records of your injuries, including medical bills, diagnoses, treatment plans, and any medications prescribed. Take photos of visible injuries, bruises, cuts, or other physical harm as your recovery progresses.

Follow all medical advice and treatment plans healthcare professionals provide. Failure to follow medical recommendations could impact your ability to recover compensation for your injuries.

  • Keep Records

Keep detailed records of all expenses related to the accident, including medical bills, property damage repairs, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket costs.
