But how do you know whether or not it’s a good idea to hire a Provo personal injury attorney?

So, even if you’re not sure about whether or not you’ve got a case, sitting down with a Provo personal injury lawyer can help you determine what your next steps are.

“But Aren’t Personal Injury Lawyers Expensive?”

No, not at all! Did you know that most Provo personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis? This means that personal injury lawyers don’t get paid until you get a settlement or judgment in your favor. Not only do our Provo personal injury attorneys give free consultations to help victims of negligence determine whether or not they have a case, our attorneys also work on contingency so that victims of negligence never have to pay out of pocket. Once you get a judgment in your favor, or a settlement offer that you like, a pre-negotiated portion of that settlement or judgment will cover all your legal fees. If you’ve sustained severe injuries due to someone else’s negligence, contact an attorney today! You’ve got nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

So How Do Personal Injury Claims Work?

Many victims of negligence are apprehensive about filing personal injury claims because it sounds like an overwhelming process. However, at Moxie Law Group, our law firm is dedicated to making the process as smooth as possible. First, potential clients will meet with a personal injury lawyer, or member of our legal team, for a free consultation. During the free consultation, the personal injury lawyer will ask questions about the incident. The personal injury lawyer may ask about the injuries the potential client sustained, and the medical attention the potential client received, or the medical expenses the client has already accrued. If the attorney determines that they can help the client get the monetary compensation they deserve, they’ll begin working on your case. Most personal injury cases settle. This means that the Utah attorney and the insurance company have come to an agreement regarding fair compensation. However, if the insurance company and the attorney are not able to come to an agreement, the personal injury case may turn into a personal injury lawsuit. Although most personal injury cases don’t go to court, some personal injury cases need to in order to ensure that the client gets the maximum compensation.

What Kinds of Cases Do Attorneys Work On?

Although most people think car accident when they think of a personal injury case, the attorneys at our law firm help many different injury victims find monetary relief for the injuries they’ve sustained. At Moxie Law Group, our law firm works with personal injury victims who have sustained brain injuries, dog bites and dog attacks, back injuries, broken bones, products liability injuries, medical malpractice injuries, catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries, and injuries sustained due to drunk driving car accidents. Our law firm can even help with workplace accidents due to negligent third parties. Whether you need help with a medical malpractice case, or a catastrophic injuries case, Moxie Law Group is here for you.

What Can an Attorney Help With?

Most claimants are requesting financial relief from damages they’ve sustained due to the negligence of the at-fault party. These damages can be economic, non-economic, and punitive. For example, if a dog bites you, you’re going to have some serious damages. Your economic damages will likely include the cost of medical care. Many people who have been attacked by dogs struggle with emotional trauma. This mental anguish is considered to be a non-economic damage, and the responsible party may be ordered to compensate the injured party for the non-economic damage. Here’s another example involving products liability: let’s say you’re injured when a cellphone explodes while you’re using it. When defective products injure consumers, an attorney may be able to find out who has liability for the consumer’s injuries, and help the consumer get monetary relief. Attorneys can even help surviving family members file a claim for wrongful death. Let’s say a man is in a serious car accident due to the negligence of another person and he eventually succumbs to his injuries. A surviving family member may be able to file a wrongful death claim. If you’re considering filing a wrongful death claim, it’s important to choose an attorney you trust to handle such a delicate matter.

Serious Damage? Get a Serious Settlement Offer

When it comes to personal injury law, there’s no substitute for an attorney who knows what they’re talking about. Most people struggle handling their own insurance claims because they aren’t well versed in the law, or in legal language. Insurance companies will try to take advantage of this and persuade the injured party to accept the lowest settlement offer possible. If the insurance company can find a way to completely deny you coverage, they’ll do that. Unfortunately, many people can’t simply just get out their wallets and pay for the cost of another person’s negligence. Usually, when a person sustains injury in a motor vehicle accident, they need compensation in order to make a fully recovery from the injuries they’ve sustained. Though insurance companies would ideally just cover all the medical expenses, not all insurance carriers have enough insurance to cover the cost of the injured party’s expenses. This is why attorneys exist. Attorneys help the injured parties get fair compensation instead of the low settlement offers the insurance companies start out with. If you’ve got serious injuries, you may need an lawyer to help you get a serious settlement offer.

Three Ways to Get the Most out of Your Legal Claim

If you’ve sustained injury, you may need to work with a personal injury lawyer to get the compensation you need in order to recover from your injuries. If you’ve sustained injury due to the negligence of another person, make sure you follow the tips listed below in order to preserve your case.

Take Pictures at the Scene of the Accident

If you’ve been in a car accident, make sure to take pictures of the collision. It’s also a good idea to take video footage of the collision. Taking pictures of the landscape as well as any traffic signs, lights, or skid marks that the collision has caused. These types of footage and video can be used as evidence to prove that the other party’s negligence caused you to sustain injury. If you need to go to court in order to get a fair settlement or judgment, your lawyer can use the video footage or photographs to prove that the other party’s negligent conduct caused you to sustain injury.

Get Treatment

If you’ve been in an accident, and you’ve sustained injury in that accident, you need to get treatment for that injury as soon as possible. If you neglect to do this, the insurance adjuster may try to argue that you aren’t really hurt, or that your injuries were not caused in the accident. In order to preserve your case, it’s imperative that you get treatment for your injuries as soon as possible. Don’t say that you’re not hurt because some injuries take days to appear.
