What Is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a set of laws designed to protect people in the event of an accident caused at the fault of another. You may also have a personal injury case if you were hurt because of someone’s failure to act. With proper representation, claimants could earn compensation to pay for medical bills and reimburse lost wages due to the injury.
Your Rights as an Accident Victim
The state of Utah offers certain rights to accident victims. However, navigating the legal code is no easy task, especially if you have little formal education in law. Thankfully, Richards & Richards Law Firm, PLLC is here to help. Our law firm specializing in personal injury will help you better understand your rights. Highlights include:
- Victims have the right to seek financial recovery from at-fault individuals or organizations
- Victims have the right to investigate an accident and determine the fault
- Victims have the right to file a claim if they do so within the state’s statute of limitations
How Long Do These Cases Take to Settle?
It’s impossible to tell how long your unique case will take to settle. Each case is different and requires a tailored approach to the legal system. It’s our goal to provide you with a streamlined experience and prevent the process from stretching out any more than it needs to. Generally speaking, the length of the case will depend on these factors:
The extent of the client’s injuries plays a major role in the legal process. We encourage clients to prioritize medical treatment and reduce the chances of complications. Our team will make sure you don’t miss the statute of limitations because of a lengthy recovery.
Some cases involve massive amounts of money. These scenarios often take longer to settle on the part of insurance companies.
Gathering evidence is a huge part of building a personal injury case. When factual conflicts arise, we aim to have enough evidence (medical records, photos, witness testimony, etc.) to resolve them.
Most of the time, clients prefer to settle the personal injury matter out of court. However, other times, litigation is the best way to achieve the desired outcome. Keep in mind if you decide to go the litigation route, the process will be significantly longer.
