As Salt Lake City’s “second downtown,” Sugar House is the perfect shopping, eating, and drinking destination for those seeking something different. The majestic mountain views of Sugar House Park make it one of the most desirable trail-running spots in the whole city, and there are plenty of places to wet your whistle after working up a sweat.

Of course, even in this idyllic urban setting, unfortunate accidents can change the lives of visitors and residents forever. Recent years have seen cars crashing into the post office and eateries, hit-and-run pedestrian attacks, and one fatal truck accident on the I-80. If your life has been turned upside down by an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury lawyer to advocate for you.

Siegfried & Jensen’s personal injury attorneys have over 30 years of experience in fighting for the rights of Sugar House locals. Our compassionate lawyers are ready to listen to your story and explain your legal options. Schedule a free case evaluation today by calling (801) 845-9000 or filling out our contact form.

Reasons to Work With Siegfried & Jensen’s Personal Injury Lawyers

If your accident took place in the Sugar House area, it makes sense to work with a law firm that has a long history in the area. Siegfried & Jensen have two offices within minutes of Sugar House, and we know the local area like the back of our hands. Add to that our in-depth knowledge of Utah law and our 97 percent success rate, and you can rest assured you are in safe hands when we take on your case.

Other benefits of entrusting your case to experienced personal injury lawyers include:

  • Letting you focus on healing: Studies have found that the stress of handling a personal injury claim on your own could impact your healing. Handing it over to a law firm, on the other hand, can allow you to focus on your well-being.
  • Giving you an edge: Most of us have limited experience in battling insurance companies and overcoming their tactics. However, personal injury lawyers do this day in and day out. They can try to nullify insurance company strategies to devalue your claim, giving you a better chance of achieving a fair settlement.
  • Having access to expert witnesses: Personal injury cases can be both medically and financially complex. A personal injury lawyer may draw on a network of medical and financial expert witnesses to help him or her assess the true impact of your injuries and pursue the right amount of compensation.

The Types of Cases Personal Injury Lawyers Handle

Personal injury law covers a wide range of cases. Whenever someone else’s negligence causes you harm, you can pursue compensation to restore what you have lost. This includes economic losses, such as medical expenses and lost earnings, but can also include non-economic losses, like pain and suffering and mental anguish.

Some common case types include:

  • Car wrecks
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian collisions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Slip-and-fall accidents

Some people may hold back from seeking legal advice because they worry about the cost or are concerned they are partly responsible. But, in actuality, a personal injury lawyer may be able to set your mind at rest on both fronts.

At Siegfried & Jensen, we offer a completely free personalized case evaluation where you can discover your legal rights. Delays could cause you to miss the deadline for taking legal action, so schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

The following examples demonstrate how personal injury lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you need.

Truck Accidents

In 2023, a noteworthy amount of truck accidents were believed to have caused serious injuries in Salt Lake City. Every day, thousands of trucks pass just north of Sugar House on the I-80, and when things go wrong, they tend to go spectacularly wrong. Trucks massively outweigh most other vehicles and have the potential to cause catastrophic, life-changing injuries to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Truck accidents can be very tricky due to the large number of potentially liable parties. Personal injury lawyers, though, can thoroughly investigate your case to determine who to pursue for compensation. Liable parties could include the truck driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer, and the maintenance company.

If we take on your case, our personal injury lawyers will use our decades of experience with trucking accidents to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

Distracted Driver Accidents

People have never been as distracted as they are today, and each year, this leads to accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving claimed 3,308 lives in 2022.

If this type of negligent behavior was a factor in the death of your loved one or a serious injury to yourself, seek advice from a personal injury lawyer. He or she can investigate the crash and attempt to gather evidence to prove the other driver was distracted at the time of the crash.

This could include traffic cameras, dashcam footage, or cell phone records that show what the driver was doing immediately before the crash. Your personal injury attorney can use this evidence to negotiate hard for a fair settlement or fight your case at trial if the case cannot be settled out of court.
