Salt Lake City’s Capitol Hill is home to more than just the state’s seat of power. It also houses some of the most charming and diverse architecture in the city. Yet, even in the quaint, irregular streets of the Marmalade District, accidents happen here that disrupt the lives of individuals and families for months or years to come.

In recent years, Capitol Hill has seen a fatal industrial accident on North Beck Street, cycling accidents, and car crashes near its trails and canyons. If your life has been turned upside down by the wrongful death of a loved one or a serious injury, you may have the right to seek compensation for the losses you have suffered.

The personal injury lawyers at Siegfried & Jensen stand ready to assist residents of Capitol Hill and the surrounding areas when they need help the most.

What Siegfried & Jensen Personal Injury Attorneys Can Do for You

If we take on your case, our Capitol Hill personal injury lawyers can investigate your accident and negotiate with insurance companies in pursuit of a fair settlement. If necessary, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you at trial.

Our attorneys focus on virtually all aspects of personal injury law, including:

  •  Car crashes
  •  Commercial vehicle accidents (trucks, buses, delivery vans, etc.)
  •  Slip-and-fall accidents
  •  Medical malpractice
  •  Dog bites

Let us take a closer look at two areas of personal injury law and see how Siegfried & Jensen’s lawyers fight for the rights of our clients in each one.

Workplace accidents

Utah has recently seen a disturbing increase in workplace fatalities. In 2021, there were 52 deaths at work, but this increased to 57 in 2022. Separately, there are many more workplace accidents that leave people injured and possibly unable to work or do the jobs they did before.

If someone else’s negligence or deliberate accidents contributed to your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Personal injury lawyers can help employees navigate the complexities of workers’ compensation insurance claims.

This assistance may include:

  •  Investigating the circumstances of your accident
  •  Identifying breaches in your employer’s duty of care
  •  Determining who to file a claim or lawsuit against
  •  Building a strong case for compensation and negotiating hard
  •  Fighting your case in court if it is not possible to settle

Our personal injury lawyers have a track record of fighting and winning workplace accident cases. If we take on your case, we will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of a fair settlement for you.

Bicycle accidents

Cycling is a popular, practical, and environmentally friendly way to get around Capitol Hill. Yet, sadly, a simple ride can end up in serious injuries and even fatalities. In 2022, 15 bicyclists died in Utah crashes, and a further 49 were seriously hurt.

Bicycle riders are very vulnerable to serious injuries, as the bike and protective clothing offer little protection if they collide with a vehicle, pedestrian, or stationary object. Bicycle accidents can cause:

  •  Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  •  Spinal cord damage
  •  Broken bones
  •  Facial injuries

Bicycle accident lawyers can investigate who was liable for your accident and the best route to compensation. They can also calculate the financial impact of your accident, including your medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning potential, and the non-economic cost of your accident.

Depending on the circumstances, personal injury lawyers may be able to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment in life, and loss of normal marital relations.

If you accept the insurance company’s first settlement offer, you will likely not get what you deserve. The personal injury lawyers of Siegfried & Jensen can advocate for you, using all the resources at their disposal to fight for fair compensation that will allow you to rebuild your life after a bicycle crash or another accident.
