The Leading Personal Injury Lawyers
Provo Has

Provo is named after a French-Canadian Trapper. Established in 1849, Provo is over 170 years old. Over the years, Provo has transformed into the third-largest city in Utah. Today, Provo is a bustling city located about 45 miles south of Utah’s capital, Salt Lake City. Provo is home to Brigham Young University and several scenic sights such as Bridal Veil Falls, Mount Timpanogos, and the Timpanogos Cave National Monument.

It’s no wonder Provo was ranked the second greatest place to live in America. For the most part, Provo is a very safe city: it’s estimated that Provo is safer than 35% of cities. However, since Provo is so large, the rates of violent crime differ dramatically. In some parts of Provo, the chances of a violent crime occurring are 1 in 657. Yet in other places, it can be as high as 1 in 164. Therefore, our mission is to protect those who have been injured and keep the communities around us safe.

Personal Injury Practice Areas

There are a number of ways people become injured in Provo. Many times, these accidents are caused by the negligent, or carelessness, actions or inactions of another person. When that is the case, injured individuals can file a personal injury claim against the negligent party to recover financial compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more. The type of personal injury claim you file will depend on the type of accident you were involved in. Our skilled Provo personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling many different types of claims, including:

Birth injuries: Labor and delivery rooms are fast-paced environments. There is a lot happening all at once and healthcare professionals must know how to respond. They must also ensure the health of the mother and child are monitored at all times, so they know when they have to make medical decisions. Any mistake made by a doctor, nurse, or other part of the healthcare team can result in serious birth injuries to both the mother and baby.

Car accidents: Car accidents in Provo, as throughout all of Utah, are governed by no-fault law. This means you must file a claim with your own insurance provider to claim coverage for costs such as your medical expenses. If you meet the tort threshold, you can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver.

Medical malpractice: Doctors and other healthcare professionals owe their patients the highest duty of care to ensure they keep people safe. Medication errors, failure to diagnose, surgical mistakes, and failure to treat are just a few types of medical negligence.

Nursing home negligence and abuse: Seniors in nursing homes are one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. Nursing home administrators and staff members must take great care to ensure they meet the needs of residents and keep them safe from harm. Physical abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse, and neglect are just a few types of abuse that occurs in nursing homes.

Premises liability: Property owners in Provo are required to keep their premises in a safe condition at all times. When properties contain hazards that cause slip and falls, swimming pool accidents, or attacks due to negligent security, victims can hold the property owner liable through a personal injury claim.

Workplace accidents: People who become hurt on the job may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim. In some instances, injured workers may also be able to file a personal injury claim against a negligent third party.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) in Utah

Utah is one of a handful of states that follows no-fault auto insurance law. Under this law, all drivers are required to minimum amounts of auto insurance. To legally drive within the state, you must purchase:

  • $3,000 of coverage for medical expenses,
  • $3,000 of coverage for death benefit heirs, if the accident was fatal,
  • $1,500 of coverage for burial costs per fatality,
  • 85% of coverage for lost wages due to injuries sustained during the accident, up to $250 per week
  • Up to $20 a day in special allowance coverage if you cannot perform certain tasks, up to 365 days

PIP coverage is not always enough to fully cover the cost of an accident. For example, if you suffered several broken bones during the accident, medical treatment alone could cost tens of thousands of dollars. You will likely have extensive hospital stays, require multiple surgeries, and will likely be unable to return to work for some time. The coverage provided by PIP is likely not enough to cover these costs.

You can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver if you meet the tort threshold outlined in state law. You meet this threshold if any of the following criteria is met:

  • The accident involved a fatality
  • You became dismembered
  • The accident left you permanently impaired or disabled
  • You became permanently disfigured
  • Your medical expenses are greater than $3,000

You do not have to meet the tort threshold to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver for special damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages.

Damages Available in Personal Injury Claims

Regardless of whether you were injured in a slip and fall, or have to file a lawsuit after a car crash, you can claim compensation for your injuries. The compensation you receive is intended to restore your health and make you as whole again as possible. The bulk of the compensation awarded in personal injury claims are known as special damages, also known as economic damages. These damages have an actual dollar value, so they are fairly easy to calculate. The most common special damages in injury claims are as follows:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property loss
  • Loss of household services

Not all losses sustained in an accident have a concrete dollar value, but they are still losses you deserve compensation for. Damages for these losses are known as non-economic damages or general damages. The most common general damages in personal injury claims are as follows:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disfigurement

In very rare cases, punitive damages are also sometimes awarded. Punitive damages are not meant to compensate you or make you whole again. The sole purpose of these damages is to punish the negligent party. Punitive damages are rarely awarded in Utah, but they may be available if the defendant acted with gross negligence or extreme misconduct. If you are awarded punitive damages, you will receive the whole of the first $50,000. Any damages awarded in excess of that are split between you and the state, making Utah’s law on punitive damages unique from many other states.

The Statute of Limitations

 Like other states, all personal injury claims in Utah are subject to the statute of limitations. This is a time limit on your claim. To successfully recover damages after an accident, you must file your claim within four days of the accident. If you do not file your claim within that time, the insurance companies and the courts will likely throw out your claim and you will lose your legal right to claim compensation now, and in the future.

EMPATHY: ISO The Empathetic Attorney?

Great lawyers are more than our “Super Lawyers” or AVVO ratings.
At Moxie Law Group, our legal team is more than the number of stars behind our names on client ratings.
Similarly, the top lawyers are the ones who understand that you—not them—are at the center. They are the ones who prioritize your emotional state and unique needs. Moxie seeks to be the unique brand of attorney: The Empathetic Attorney.

In 2018 UCLA researchers observed how women and men observe others in pain. The clear finding:
When watching others in pain, women’s brains show more empathy.

“What sets superior lawyers apart throughout their careers,” notes David Perla, president of Bloomberg Law, “One quality in particular: Empathy.”

Integrity: Ensuring the “I” Is Always Upfront

Acting with integrity means living your values—at all times, not just when it is convenient.

David Rivkin, former president of the International Bar Association, the global voice of the legal profession, noted: “The problem of lawyers assisting conduct that is corrupt or illegal is certainly more widespread.”

The legal profession prizes integrity so much that is a key aspect of professional conduct for attorneys. “A lawyer shall at all times maintain the highest standards of honesty, integrity and fairness towards their clients, the court, colleagues and all those with whom the lawyer comes into professional contact.”

Let Moxie Law come into contact, connect, then partner with you to success. In conclusion, by listening to you and your needs, we will bring our commitment to integrity to your case and fight for you.
