Motor vehicles are a way of life. Virtually everyone will drive or ride in a motor vehicle daily. When we embark on travel few of us give any thought to the risk of injury from driving or riding in a vehicle. Yet motor vehicle accidents pose a significant risk of injury every time we get behind the wheel, grab the handle bars or sit in a passenger seat. No matter how carefully or defensively we drive, we cannot prevent the unforeseen negligence or recklessness of others from causing an accident that can change our lives forever.
Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of unexpected injuries in the United States. In 2012 alone over 2,500,000 individuals suffered injuries in auto, truck and motorcycle accidents; more than 33,500 of those accidents involved fatalities to the drivers and passengers.

Injuries suffered in automobile, truck and motorcycle accidents can be life changing. They can range from painful muscle sprains and strains to significant and severe spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), permanent disfigurements, broken bones, fractures and loss of a limb or loss of vision.
Utah has a four year statute of limitations for filing most personal injury claims, excluding those claims involving product defects or malpractice, which have two year statutes of limitations.
Compensation includes reimbursement for actual accident related expenses such as:
Pain and Suffering Damages, Hospital and ambulance charges, Past and future medical treatment, Prescriptions and medical appliances, Rehabilitation, Lost Wages, Lost or reduced earnings capacity, Vehicle damage or replacement cost, Vehicle rentals, Miscellaneous other related costs.
The first and most important step to receiving full and fair compensation is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. Proving negligence in an automobile, truck or motorcycle can be daunting. Insurance are not there to help and will do everything and anything to protect their bottom lines by under valuing and under paying accident related claims. Insurance companies have their own lawyers to fight personal injury claims and so should you. National statistics show that on average claimants represented by attorneys collect five times more in insurance settlements than non-represented claimants.
