Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney? 

I’ve you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another person, a personal injury attorney may help you get the compensation you deserve. However, you won’t know until you discuss your personal injury case with a qualified personal injury attorney. No two personal injury cases are exactly alike; in many cases, the specific circumstances make all the difference. Therefore, it’s generally not possible to give a person a concrete set of guidelines for deciding whether or not they’d benefit from hiring an Orem personal injury lawyer. However, there may be signs that a personal injury lawyer can help you. 

  1. You’ve Sustained Injury

In order to have a good personal injury case, you need to have sustained some type of injury. Personal injury lawyers generally see a variety of circumstances that have led to injury. At Moxie Law Group, our personal injury lawyers handle personal injury cases where clients have sustained injury in a variety of ways.

  1. The Accident Wasn’t Your Fault

In order for you to have a personal injury claim in Utah, you can’t be more than 49% at fault for the accident that caused you to sustain injury. How do you know how much, if any, fault you have? In most cases, a skilled personal injury lawyer will need to review your personal injury claim and determine whether or not you have fault. In some cases, the insurance company will determine that the accident victim is at fault for the accident that caused serious injuries they’ve sustained. However, it’s still a good idea to attend a free case evaluation, even if the insurance company is saying that you’re at fault. Insurance companies don’t always get it right when it comes to determining fault. So even if the insurance adjuster says you’re at fault, you may still have a personal injury case. Accident victims should always get legal advice from a qualified attorney before deciding not to file a personal injury case. In some situations, it may be prudent to get advice from multiple different Orem personal injury lawyers, especially if you’re struggling to find one that you can trust. 

  1. You Have Damages

In order to have a strong case, accident victims need to have some sort or economic damages. Economic damages refer to damages that have an objective monetary value. For example, if you are in a car accident, you may have sustained catastrophic injuries and had to be transported to the emergency room in order to receive medical treatment. The medical bills resulting from the emergency transportation and the emergency room visit are examples of economic damages. After car accident, you may not be able to return to work immediately. Therefore, you may suffer from lost wages, also known as loss of income. Many personal injury claims also involve non-economic damages. Fair and full compensation doesn’t just mean covering the medical bills and lost wages. It also means covering the no-economic damages as well. Non-economic damages refer to damages that do not have an objective monetary value. For example, those who have sustained severe injuries in car accidents may suffer from emotional distress as a result of their injuries. If you have a skilled Orem personal injury attorney on your side, you may be more likely to receive monetary compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and non-economic damages. If you have damages, make sure you contact an Orem personal injury attorney today. 

What Kind of Personal Injury Cases Do We Help With? 

A Moxie Law Group, our attorneys can handle a variety of personal injury claims. When you need a UT personal injury attorney that’s dedicated to helping you get the compensation you need, our law firm is the top choice. 

Medical Malpractice: Our law firm has the experience you need to succeed with your medical malpractice claim. Malpractice can occur when a medical professional’s negligence leads to the injury of a patient. Though many people primarily think of doctors being sued when they think of malpractice, the reality is that any medical professional can be sued for malpractice if their negligence injures a patient. If you’ve sustained injury due to a negligent medical professional, our Orem personal injury attorneys can help you get the compensation you need to recover. 

Motor Vehicle Accidents: Our Orem personal injury attorneys have a lot of experience obtaining fair compensation for injured clients. Though most people think of automobile accidents when they think of personal injury lawsuits, auto accidents aren’t the only type of vehicle accident our law firm handles. Whether you’ve been in a car accident, side-by-side accident, or pedestrian accident, our law firm is here for you. If you’re looking to get fair compensation, contact our law firm today. 

Wrongful Death: Wrongful death occurs when a person’s negligence leads to the untimely demise of another person. Although a person can be tried for murder and civilly sued for wrongful death, wrongful death isn’t necessarily the same thing as murder. Here’s a good example of wrongful death: let’s say a person is texting while driving and causes a fatal car crash. The distracted driver may be sued for wrongful death. A wrongful death settlement, or wrongful death lawsuit, can provide financial compensation to the surviving family members. 

Motorcycle Accidents: Our law office also has the experience necessary to help victims of motorcycle accidents. In many cases, what would be a minor auto accident ends up being a rather serious motorcycle accident. Generally, motorcycle accidents cause severe injuries such as head injuries, spinal injuries, and more. In many of these cases, the medical costs are overwhelming. Having legal assistance can help ensure that the injured party receives adequate financial compensation to cover the costs of their medical expenses and ease the financial burden associated with the injury. 

Premises Liability: Did you know that if you own a property, you generally have a duty to keep your property safe for implied invitees and visitors? Whether you’ve sustained injury due to a negligent homeowner, or due to the negligently kept commercial property, you may have a premises liability case on your hands. You can find out whether or not our law office can help you receive the maximum compensation by attending a free consultation with an attorney or member of our talented legal team. 

Workplace Accidents: if you’ve sustained injury at work, your best bet for financial recovery may indeed be through worker’s compensation fund. However, there are some situations where a personal injury attorney can help you collect compensation. When your injuries occurred at work, but they were due to the negligence of a third party–meaning someone who isn’t your employer–you may have a claim.
