No Fee Unless We Win
We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee. In other words, we never ask you to reach into your own pocket to pay us anything, ever. We even cover all of the costs of suit. If your case goes south, we will not ask you to pay any fees or costs. There are no hidden costs or up front retainers. We only collect fees and costs out of the winnings. You will not pay anything to us out of pocket.
Serious Injuries, Serious Results
If we accept your case, we will do what it takes to win, regardless of the size of your case. In a typical personal injury case, we first try to settle the case with the insurance company or the defendant. If we cannot obtain a fair settlement, we file a lawsuit and prepare the case for trial. Most cases settle before trial, but if a case doesn't settle before trial, we are prepared to take cases all the way through jury trial, and appeal, if necessary.
Each case we handle is given individualized and specific attention. From the initial consultation through settlement, we prepare each case as though it is going to trial. We do this because we have found that most insurance companies will not compensate you fairly unless you are ready to prove your case in front of a jury.
Under Utah law, you are entitled to a cash payment for your medical expenses, your lost income and for pain and suffering. It isn't enough to just go to the doctor and get treatment. To get the money you are entitled to, you need to be prepared to prove your case. Your case may require photographs of the accident scene and an accident reconstructionist. Your case may need expert witnesses. Your personal injury case may require an expert to prove negligence against the at fault party. Your case may need a vocational expert to prove that you needed to miss work and will lose income in the future. Your personal injury case may require someone to testify regarding future medical treatments you will need. Whatever the particular needs of your personal injury case, we have the experience and resources to identify those needs and prepare your case to maximize your results.
