Salt Lake City Car Accident Lawyer

Protect Your Rights After a Car Accident

Salt Lake City roads can be terrifying. From distracted drivers to intoxication behind the wheel, there are many sources of danger on local interstates, highways, and city streets. These car accidents are often devastating, with victims suffering not only deadly injuries but also long-lasting emotional trauma.

Unfortunately, Utah car accidents are far more common and far more deadly than most people realize. According to the Utah Department of Health, a crash occurs once every eight minutes — and somebody is injured in a crash every twenty minutes.

Considering all this suffering, it is easy to see why skilled Salt Lake City car accident attorneys are in such high demand. These professionals play a critical role in helping victims secure damages. They can also make a typically stressful process a lot easier to navigate.

While our lawyers handle a variety of personal injury cases, a significant share of our work involves local car accidents. We have delivered many positive case outcomes, including significant settlements and even jury verdicts on behalf of our wonderful clients.

Why Work with Strong Law?

There are plenty of car accident lawyers in Salt Lake City; what sets Strong Law apart?

We bring many unique qualities to the table, but passion and experience are by far our two greatest assets. Through years of legal success, our team at Strong Law has developed an unmatched level of knowledge and skill. Our efforts have helped many Salt Lake City drivers obtain both monetary damages and a sense of justice.

When dealing with car insurance companies or negligent drivers, there is simply no substitute for a talented lawyer. That is exactly what we are pleased to provide at Strong Law in Salt Lake City.

Key advantages of working with our Salt Lake City car accident lawyers include:

Unique Experience and Perspective

Before we began assisting car accident victims, our team primarily worked with the opposing side — we were instrumental in defending a major insurance company.

Through this experience, we gained an intimate understanding of how insurance companies function and what typically stands in the way when drivers strive to obtain compensation.

More recently, we have made it our mission to provide the best possible representation for those who have suffered during motor vehicle accidents. Our background in the insurance industry has made it abundantly clear just how important aggressive representation is in all stages of a Salt Lake City car accident case.

Passion for Our Work

Our team at Strong Law is genuinely passionate about representing Salt Lake City drivers.

Having observed the inner workings of the local car insurance industry, we honestly believe that the region’s drivers deserve better. To that end, we approach every case with undeniable passion. This is immediately evident to our clients, who appreciate our zealous approach.

Detail-Oriented Approach

Few qualities are quite as valuable as attention to detail, particularly when dealing with difficult car insurance cases. Our detail-oriented attorneys can uncover crucial evidence during the discovery phase, thereby helping us prove:

  • That you were significantly harmed (physically, emotionally, or financially) because of a negligence-based car accident.
  • That the other person’s problematic behavior behind the wheel was the main cause of the collision.
  • That it will take substantial damages to compensate you for all the expenses and trauma that occurred due to the accident.

These details play heavily into our negotiations with insurance providers. A detail-oriented approach in the early phases of your case can save you a lot of trouble down the road.

Attention to detail is also crucial as you negotiate a personal injury settlement or strive for a desirable outcome in court. A single word out of place could compromise your case, so there is absolutely no room for error.

Assertive Legal Advocacy

We know what it takes to stand up to major car insurance companies. Yes, these enjoy a wealth of resources that the average driver lacks, but that does not mean that they should have the ability to push you and other Salt Lake City drivers around. At Strong Law, we stand up on your behalf, fighting for your best interests every step of the way.

As we have mentioned, our zealous approach is inspired, in part, by all that we have witnessed in the insurance industry. We are well aware of the underhanded tactics that can compromise your settlement — but we have seen on numerous occasions how assertive legal representatives can overcome these concerns.

Contingency Services

If you are worried about the cost of legal representation, do not be at Strong Law. We work on a contingency basis, so upfront fees should not be a source of concern. Instead, you can rest assured, knowing that you will not pay a cent until our team delivers the desired case outcome. We will handle the upfront aspects of your case, such as the cost of the investigation and various legal fees.

Happy Clients

We are proud of our elite legal service, but you do not need to take our word for it. Our testimonials speak for themselves. There is no question — our clients appreciate our compassionate, yet proactive approach to car accident cases.

To get a better sense of just how transformative our legal services can be, take a look at our testimonials page. There, you will learn about the instantaneous changes our clients observed upon getting our Salt Lake City attorneys involved.

Clients also speak highly of our honest discourse and our respectful attitude. They feel cared for and appreciated as soon as they arrive for their first consultation. Once they have obtained settlements or final verdicts, they emerge feeling pleased about the entire scope of the legal process.

The Strong Law Process: How Our Salt Lake City Car Accident Lawyers Can Help

Every car accident case comes with its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. These may relate to the cause of the accident, the amount of evidence available, or the nature of your injuries.

Despite these complications, the process typically follows a basic pattern, encompassing consultations, discovery, and negotiations. Should you decide to work with our Salt Lake City car accident lawyers, you can expect:

A Helpful Consultation

The legal process should always begin with an initial consultation. This is when you and your Salt Lake City car accident attorney get to know one another. Your attorney will learn more about the details of your case, while you will get a sense of what, exactly, sets your new legal team apart.

During your consultation, you can expect an honest assessment of your case. Your attorney will not sugarcoat the situation; you will be well aware of any challenges that you might face in your quest to secure car accident damages. You will also learn about potential solutions or opportunities you might otherwise not have considered.

Your attorney will help you determine whether your damages will actually be sufficient to pursue a claim through car insurance. As a no-fault state, Utah requires that all drivers carry a basic level of personal injury protection (PIP). The caveat is that you cannot collect from another driver’s policy until the first $3,000 has been covered by your own insurance provider.

All this can be a lot to take in, but your Salt Lake City car accident lawyer will go over all the details patiently. You will emerge feeling confident about your case and ready to fight for the damages you deserve.

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

A Thorough Investigation

As we have mentioned, our legal team in Salt Lake City is incredibly detail oriented. This is most obvious during our in-depth investigative process. We scour all available sources of evidence to provide dedicated support for your case. Options include:

  • Police reports. These are some of the most valuable documents in the aftermath of a car accident, although they are not always without flaws. This is where the basic information surrounding the incident will be detailed, including names and contact information for all those involved in the crash. Not only are these reports advisable for purposes of documentation, but they are also outright required for any case exceeding $1,500 in property damage.
  • Medical records. The sooner you seek medical care after a car accident, the better. This is important both for your own well-being and for the sake of your case. Records produced while receiving early medical attention will reveal the severity of your injuries. This, in turn, will help demonstrate that you deserve the full amount of compensation sought with your attorney’s assistance.
  • Photos of the accident scene. The cliche about a picture being worth 1,000 words is definitely relevant when taking photos of a car accident scene. These can convey the true scale of the crash in a way that is difficult to capture in a typical police report.
  • Witness statements. Witnesses can provide valuable insight into details not captured in police reports or medical records. If their statements are consistent with your side of the story, you will appear a lot more credible.
  • Expert witness testimony. Options for witnesses include not only people who were at the scene of the crash, but also expert witnesses. These professionals conduct thorough investigations and accident reconstructions to help determine which factors were at play at the time of the collision.

Our experience with the insurance industry has made us well aware of the need for extensive evidence. Insurance companies will go to surprising lengths to minimize your payout — so you will need a wealth of evidence to combat unfavorable allegations or underhanded tactics.

Effective Negotiations with Insurance Providers

If you are worried about dealing with your insurance company, you can take comfort in knowing that Strong Law in Salt Lake City has your back.

Our legal team will handle this part of the process so you can focus on recovering from your injuries or resolving any lingering emotional trauma. You will be glad to have this major source of stress out of the way. As skilled negotiators, we can advocate on your behalf and prevent insurance representatives from engaging in unfair or unethical practices.

During this process, it is important to be mindful of Utah’s status as a no-fault state regarding car insurance. Under this approach, it is the insurance company’s responsibility to handle damages related to most car accidents, regardless of which party is ultimately at fault.

Opportunities for Personal Injury Settlements or Court Verdicts

If negligence played a significant role in your car accident, personal injury damages may be available. Most cases exclusively are handled through insurance, however, the state of Utah places significant restrictions on personal injury lawsuits for car accident cases.

Typically, general damages cannot be pursued unless you have suffered:

  • Dismemberment
  • Permanent impairment
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Bone fractures
  • Over $3,000 in medical expenses.

While many Salt Lake City car accident cases conclude long before courtroom appearances become necessary, we believe in the power of trial-ready legal service. Sometimes, even the threat of trial will be enough to get insurance providers to cooperate.

We are always prepared to take your case to court if early negotiations break down. If a trial proves necessary, we will continue to advocate assertively on your behalf.

Before courtroom appearances, we will let you know exactly what to expect from the litigation process. Thorough preparation is key to success, so we will let you know what to expect.

We have achieved numerous successes in Salt Lake City trials — and we have what it takes to deliver yet another desirable verdict.

What Is the Value of My Case?

The value of an injury case depends upon many factors related to the extent of your injuries and any other losses associated with your claim. You may have medical bills, lost income, costs associated with pain and suffering, among other possible damages. To learn the possible value of your case, contact the team at Strong Law. In a free case evaluation, we’ll let you know how much your case may be worth.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
