How South Ogden Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You

Utah personal injury laws can be complex, especially when there are questions about liability and the long-term impact of your injuries. Personal injury lawyers are here to help you navigate these laws and apply them to your advantage. You can also benefit from their years of experience in enabling clients to fight and win similar cases.

Personal injury lawyers handle a wide range of cases, including:

  •  Slip-and-fall accidents
  •  Car crashes
  •  Truck accidents
  •  Medical malpractice
  •  Nursing home abuse

Let you focus on healing

Recovering from a serious injury can leave you drained and exhausted. The last thing you need is to battle with insurance bullies who will try to undermine your claim and badger you into accepting a lowball settlement.

You need a skilled advocate on your side who can handle everything for you. If you hand your case over to South Ogden lawyers, you may never have to speak to the insurance company or other party’s lawyers.

Fight for fair compensation

The insurance company will not investigate the full extent of your injuries and seek to understand how these are impacting your life. Neither will it ensure that you have the funds you need to make up for your future lost earnings if you can no longer work. However, a personal injury lawyer can thoroughly examine these concerns and more.

An attorney will leave no stone unturned when calculating the compensation you truly need. He or she can then play hardball at the negotiating table and fight your case in court if the other party does not agree to fair compensation.

Wrongful Death Cases

Losing a beloved family member in death is a tragedy, whatever the circumstances. When our loved one loses his or her life due to another person’s negligent or malicious actions, it can be unbearable. The loss of an individual may also cause severe financial anxiety for the dependents he or she leaves behind.

South Ogden has seen its share of tragedy, with a bicyclist passing away after colliding with a vehicle in 2022. In cases where wrongful acts were the direct cause of a person’s death, Utah’s wrongful death laws allow the personal representative or heirs of the deceased person to pursue compensation.

Compensation in wrongful death cases

The circumstances of each case are unique, and compensation will vary. However, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help the heirs of a wrongful death victim recover compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Medical bills related to the deceased person’s final condition
  • Lost wages, both since the time of the injury and future wages the deceased would have earned had he or she continued living
  • Pain and suffering from the time the injury occurred until the person’s death
  • Loss of services the deceased would have rendered, including affection and advice

The role of the personal injury lawyer

A Siegfried & Jensen personal injury lawyer can listen to your story and advise you on whether you have a strong case for compensation.

If we take on your case, our lawyers can:

  • Investigate your case
  • Gather evidence of liability
  • Prove that negligence was the direct cause of the fatal injuries
  • Negotiate a fair settlement for the surviving family members

Most cases can be settled out of court. However, if a fair settlement cannot be negotiated, a personal injury lawyer can fight your case in court, where a judge or jury will make the final decisions about liability and damages. If the case goes to court, the judge may also choose to award punitive damages, which are intended to deter reckless conduct in the future.

It’s not worth taking a chance with your family’s financial future. Personal injury attorneys take wrongful death cases extremely seriously and could give you the best chance of recovering maximum compensation to protect your family in the future.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Alcohol was a factor in 869 crashes in Utah in 2023. One of these car wrecks left a South Ogden girl in need of multiple surgeries. It only takes one reckless decision to drink and drive to change someone’s life forever.

Personal injury lawyers can help drunk driving accident victims by taking the weight off their shoulders. Siegfried & Jensen’s attorneys will do all the heavy lifting, from investigating the case and talking to the insurance companies to negotiating a settlement that meets your long-term needs.
