Can I Get Compensation for Injuries I Was Partly at Fault For?
Some fear the lengthy and stressful court procedures. This may be the reason to why most Utah residents give up on their personal injury claims. Others think if they were even party at fault, that they would lose their right to compensation. At no point should someone feel like they have no right without learning which laws can or cannot protect them in their case. If like many, you are lost and don’t know if you can obtain compensation for your case, call our Utah personal injury attorneys. Our attorneys will have a consultation with you to let you know if you can get compensation for your personal injury claim.
At the end of the day, you CAN still seek compensation as long as your own negligence does not exceed that of the other party. However, your share of fault does impact the amount you are entitled to receive as compensation. The only real way you can assess the value of your claim is to consult a Utah personal injury attorney.
Benefits of Speaking with an Attorney
An attorney will review all factors involved in your case and give you an estimate. It’s important to know that personal injury claims cover a lot more than just medical expenses and property damage. There are compensations for pain and suffering, loss of income, disability adjustment, and much more. Once your case has been valued, the percentage of your part at fault is deducted.
This is much better than nothing. Just keep in mind that you can also influence what percentage of fault you end up having. By saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster, you can increase your percentage of fault. Do not fear though, all you have to do is work with an experienced Utah personal injury attorney. That way you have someone on your corner making sure you get the most compensation you can and protect yourself from those pesky insurance adjusters.
Do not waste precious time pondering your own percentage of fault, or even the value of your case. Let us help you! Call our offices and schedule a consultation. Our attorneys will review your case and explain to you all your options and answer any questions you may have.
