How Robert J. DeBry Can Help
After an auto accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn and who to trust. At Robert J. DeBry & Associates, we want to help guide you through every step of the legal process. Our Utah car accident lawyers have compiled a list of steps to take after a car accident that can help protect your health and your rights to compensation.
Getting a personal injury lawyer who will fight for your best interests is one of the most important things you can do after suffering a car accident injury. Contact the Utah car accident lawyers at our firm, and we can maximize your chances of getting fair compensation by:
- Investigating the accident.
We‘ve investigated countless auto accidents for our clients, and we know what to look for to build a strong case. Our legal team will analyze the crash scene, take photographs, and collect evidence.
- Negotiating with the insurance company.
The insurance adjuster may offer you a “lowball” settlement, which may not be enough to cover your accident—related expenses. We‘ll stand up to the insurance company to make sure you get fair compensation.
- Completing legal paperwork.
When you‘ve been in a car accident, filling out stacks of legal paperwork is the last thing on your mind. We‘ll handle the paperwork while you focus on recovering and spending time with your family.
Utah No-Fault Car Accident Laws
Utah is a no-fault car insurance state. This means that regardless of who causes a car accident in Utah, everyone who is injured must file claims for compensation—referred to as personal injury protection (PIP)—with their own insurance companies. But state laws limit the amount of PIP accident victims can get from their insurance companies to $3,000, and this limit can often be reached in days or weeks. Victims seeking compensation beyond this limit must file claims against the drivers who caused their injuries.
If you were injured in an accident caused by another driver, you shouldn‘t have to pay for their negligence. At Robert J. DeBry, we‘ll walk you through every step of the legal process to help ensure you get the maximum amount of compensation for your claim.
Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?
No. Insurance companies are businesses that answer to shareholders, not injury victims. The adjusters hired to handle claims are professional negotiators that use a variety of tactics to reduce the value of claims and protect company profits. A lowball settlement offer from the insurance company may not take all of your injury-related expenses into account, and it may be tens of thousands of dollars less than what you‘re owed.
