Don’t assume you are stuck with the hospital bill until you speak to an experienced Juab County car accident attorney.

Injury Compensation: How Much Money Can I Get from a Settlement in Utah?
There are two basic ways to pursue compensation for a car accident in Juab County:
- Filing a third-party claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
- Suing the driver who hit you.
Utah is a no-fault car insurance state, which means accident victims must generally make insurance claims with their own insurers, called “first-party” claims, before attempting to hold the other driver liable. In order to file a lawsuit or make a third-party claim in Utah, the accident victim must either:
- Sustain one of the following four injury types:
- Permanent Disability
- Permanent Impairment
- Permanent Scarring/Disfigurement
- Exhaust their Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. Utah requires all drivers to carry a minimum of $3,000 in PIP coverage. Unlike mandatory liability insurance (“25/65/15”), which helps pay for the other driver’s expenses, PIP coverage goes toward your own reasonable and necessary medical expenses after a crash (e.g. ambulance rides, inpatient hospitalization, X-ray scans).
It is a common insurance company tactic to make a low offer upon receiving the accident victim’s demand letter. We know you’re under a lot of financial stress and are worried about your medical bills, but it’s important to avoid accepting an early offer until you review it with an attorney. You could be entitled to much more than you are currently being offered. In many instances, it is possible to obtain a better offer if you continue negotiating with an aggressive Juab County car crash lawyer on your side.
Many claims are successfully resolved with a settlement agreement. However, if negotiating does not result in a reasonable settlement offer, Darwin is prepared to take your case to court. In either case, the amount of compensation you can recover depends on factors like your medical bills, how much income you lost, your anticipated losses, and the permanence of your injury or resulting disabilities.
