Steps in your Cases
1. Establishing Fault and Proving Negligence for a Personal Injury
There are many potential parties that could be held responsible for the damages you suffered in your accident. Nearly anyone who contributed to the cause of your accident should be required to pay for every expense and loss that you’ve endured. What many personal injury victims fail to consider is what happens when they are partially responsible for causing the accident—or even what will happen if they’re accused of being responsible.
In Utah the law allows injury victims to recover damages from the at-fault party even if they are partially liable for the accident they were involved in. This makes it incredibly important to work with a personal injury lawyer. You can count on the insurance company and the at-fault party’s lawyers to try and use these negligence laws to their advantage, and that’s something Acadia simply won’t allow.
2. Insurers Won’t Make You a Priority
When people purchase an insurance policy and make regular payments to pay the premium, most believe that their insurance company will be on their side after a car accident or other injury-causing event. Unfortunately, far too often this isn’t the case. As a for-profit company, the insurer loses money on each claim they pay out, which is why they will look for any reason they can to deny claims.
Your personal injury attorney from Acadia will be aware of these insurance strategies for reducing settlements and won’t allow the insurer to place unwarranted fault on you for causing the accident. We will make sure that you don’t get taken advantage of and settle for less than you are entitled to.
3. Securing Maximum Compensation for Your Damages
In order for us to ensure that we obtain full compensation for the losses you suffered, your personal injury lawyer will need to examine every way in which your injuries have impacted or will impact your life. We do this by considering both your economic and non-economic damages. Once your personal injury attorney knows what your economic damages entail, we move on to calculating the value of your non-economic damages.
Economic damages are the losses that have a direct influence on your finances and might include your lost wages, the loss of potential future earnings such as bonuses, promotions, salary increases, contributions to your retirement savings account, and your medical expenses. These cover the impact your injuries have on your lifestyle and emotional state.
