Salt Lake City Car Accident Injury Cases: Overview

Car accidents that result in injury may also initiate a lawsuit. In car accident injury case, typically one person or a group has been injured by a negligent driver. An injured person then files a claim with the negligent party’s insurance policy. The primary purpose of the claim is to prove fault and liability in order to recover money to pay for medical expenses.

When people find themselves in the middle of insurance adjusters, rising medical expenses, and pain from injury they often seek out the legal help of an attorney.

In a car accident injury case, lawyers and insurance adjusters use circumstances in the crash to illustrate fault in a crash. Negotiations between the two parties — a lawyer representing an injured person and the insurance adjuster — will result either in a settlement or a case that goes to court for a verdict.

During a car accident injury case, an attorney investigates the case, proves fault to insurance adjusters, typically files a lawsuit, and demands a settlement on behalf of the client. Read more about how personal injury cases work.

Types of car accident cases may include:

What clients should know about car accident injuries and treatment

Car crashes often cause pain and discomfort. A study published in the Journal of Transport and Health found that health-related quality of life reduced for a majority of people, 59%, following a car accident. Researchers found that those injured in car crashes reported more long-term problems after the crash than bicyclists who sustained similar traffic injuries. For these participants, injuries to the leg were most common. Trauma to the legs, neck, back, and head can all hurt for months, or a lifetime after an auto accident. Even those injuries you can’t see, anxiety and depression, are commonly reported.

Pain and discomfort should not go untreated – if you are experiencing injury from a car accident, get help today. Not sure where to start? Call your primary care provider or visit a local emergency health clinic. Don’t wait to get treatment.

Whiplash Injuries After a Car Accident

Rear impact crashes have long been known to cause long term injury. Even low speed crashes at 5 miles per hour can cause injuries lasting more than a month, so says a study conducted by Folksam Research and Karolinska Institute in Sweden. Their car accident research also found that women were at higher risk for whiplash injury symptoms.

Definition of negligence: Negligence is defined as “A failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.” In many cases, the careless can can be something the person acted on (such as driving and eating) but in other situations it could be the omission of care, such as failure to get a brake inspected in a timely manner. In general, if the burden of taking a precaution is less than the probability of injury multiplied by the gravity of the injury, then the possible defendant may have some liability.

Comparative fault: This is also often called “comparative negligence.” It’s when two or more parties share a portion of fault in the crash. For clients, this may come up if the insurance adjuster tries to claim that they were also at fault. Say the at-fault driver made an unsafe unprotected left turn. The insurance adjuster could try to say that it resulted in a crash because the client sped into the intersection. Adjusters will try to do this because it will limit the amount of damages they are responsible for.

How do settlements for car accidents work?

Settlements are a result of filing an insurance claim, and getting repaid for losses incurred in a personal injury accident. Once a claim is filed, the settlement process can begin. Fortunately, if you hire a lawyer to represent and advocate for you, much of the paperwork, bills, and legal work shifts away from you and to your lawyer. Car accident cases will either settle (with a monetary agreement) or go to court where a jury will help determine the outcome of the case.

"Jason, Justin, and their entire support team represented me in an accident involving an 18 wheeler. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome, and maybe as importantly, the service along the way was something you would want as a client, their entire team was amazing! I can with great confidence recommend them to friends, family, and to anyone who happens to read this. Thank you McMinn Law Firm for a job well done!"

"The McMinns were amazing. Within two days of my accident – and still barely able to move – I received a visit to my house for personal consultation (on a Saturday). All the initial feedback about my potential case turned out to be 100% accurate, and when it finally came time to settle they didn’t back off an inch. …If you’re hurt, make the call."
