Why do I need a personal injury lawyer after a auto accident?
Utah is a “no-fault” insurance state. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, regardless of which party is at fault, you must file a claim with your insurance company. However, the amount of money you can receive in compensation from insurance companies is limited to $3,000. If you wish to seek more in compensation, which is almost always more than $3,000 for injuries and damage, you must file a claim against the driver(s) who are at fault for your injuries. This is why it’s especially important to call an Advocate, your Salt Lake City personal injury attorney.
