How do I know if I need an attorney?
A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You Navigate All Aspects of Your Case
Coordinating Insurance Payments
Utah has a no-fault insurance system which requires you to use your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance up to coverage limits, regardless of who caused the accident. Mr. Harris practices in Provo and Salt Lake City, UT, can negotiate with your insurance company for fair payments.
Identifying Other Compensation
There are exceptions to the no-fault laws which allow you to sue the responsible party directly. He can investigate your case and determine if you have the option to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver.
Considering Criminal Charges
You can still file a civil suit even if the driver who hit you is being prosecuted on criminal charges. Mr. Harris can identify the best moment to file your suit to ensure you receive fair compensation.

Meeting the Requirements for a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Meet the Time LimitIn the state of Utah, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is four years after the date of the injury. Although this seems like a generous amount of time, unnecessary delays in filing a lawsuit can affect the outcome of your case.
Demonstrate Sustained InjuriesIf you or a loved one sustained injuries including loss of limb, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or even wrongful death as a result of a drunk driving accident, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Injuries can also include emotional pain and suffering caused by the accident.
Establish LiabilityIn order for the other driver to be held liable for your injuries, you will need a lawyer to help you build a compelling case and work with accident experts to show how the other driver's actions directly led to the accident.
