AREAS OF PRACTICE

Personal Injury

If you’ve sustained a serious injury, hiring a lawyer might be the last thing on your mind; however, if your injury is causing unnecessary financial strain and emotional turmoil, you may need to work with an experienced Utah personal injury lawyer.

Here at Anderson & Rogers, we are happy to talk to you on the phone or meet you in person for free in order to answer your questions and help you understand what your options are.

Our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with a wide variety of personal injury cases:

Please call us for a free initial consultation! Our helpful attorneys will work with you directly, answer your questions, and explain the process involved in your personal injury case. You will NOT be redirected to an inexperienced legal assistant or secretary, as is the case with some other firms. The earlier we can get involved, the better we can serve you!

In building your personal injury case, we will collect evidence such as police reports, doctor’s notes, and other documentation of the accident. We will also examine photographs, survey and document the scene of the accident, retain expert witnesses, and preserve important evidence. This will strengthen the value of your claim, and keep insurance companies from taking unfair advantage of you.

WORKING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES

If you have been involved in an accident, the insurance company (not the person who hit you) is responsible to pay for the damages. These damages include repairing or replacing your car, providing a rental car, and compensating for lost wages and medical expenses.

Unfortunately, big insurance companies (like most big businesses) are looking to make a profit and pay out the least possible amount on your insurance claims, many times offering a quick settlement for much less than your case is worth. Friendly sounding insurance adjusters will often ask unsuspecting accident victims predetermined questions that strengthen the case for the insurance company, lessening the value of and even destroying your claim

The Utah personal injury attorneys from Anderson & Rogers will fight for your rights to compensation. You won’t have to pay anything unless we win or settle your case!

CAR ACCIDENTS

If your car accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, you have the right to be compensated for any injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and property damage you’ve sustained in the accident. There are a few important things to do immediately following an accident:

  • Contact the police immediately following your accident, and have them file a report
  • Collect names and contact information of witnesses.
  • If at all possible, take photographs of the scene—;including damages sustained by all vehicles and people involved. This evidence is critical to your case, and can be more difficult to acquire later if not obtained immediately.
  • Seek medical treatment if you suspect any injuries. Keep in mind that some injuries—particularly those common to automobile accidents like neck and back injuries¯may not manifest for a few days.

Utah law requires all automobile drivers to maintain a personal injury protection (PIP) policy on their car insurance. In case of an automobile accident, this policy will cover medical expenses in the absence of health insurance, and can even compensate for lost wages. While not every PIP policy will provide a rental car, many of them do. The Utah personal injury attorneys at Anderson & Rogers work with insurance companies on your behalf to pay these expenses immediately so that you can concentrate on getting better—without all the annoying phone calls.

DOG BITES

Physical injury and emotional stress from a dog bite can be devastating, and dog bite laws in Utah can be tricky. As a victim of an animal attack, you are entitled to any compensation for your medical expenses, lost earnings, rehabilitation costs, and other losses.

Contrary to common misconception, Utah law does not require you to show that the dog has bitten someone in the past before filing a suit. Your friends at Anderson & Rogers understand the complex nature of dog bite cases. Our personal injury lawyers will fight to settle your case in as painless and efficient a manner as possible.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Even the most experienced motorcyclists are at the mercy of other motorists. Whether your motorcycle is involved in a collision with another motorist, or you were forced to lay your bike down to avoid such an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, lost wages, damage to your motorcycle, and other costs associated with your accident.

As opposed to car drivers, motorcyclists involved in an accident are at greater risk for sustaining a serious injury such as road rash, bone fractures, brain damage, and spinal cord injuries. A Utah personal injury attorney from Anderson & Rogers will advise you on Utah’s motorcycle laws and, if you have a case, make sure you are fairly compensated for your loss.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

In an auto accident involving a pedestrian, the pedestrian has the same right to seek compensation as any motorist. Pedestrian accidents can have a number of causes:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or phoning while driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Reckless driving
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Driving too fast in a parking lot
  • And more

The Utah personal injury attorneys at Anderson & Rogers will work with you to determine whether negligence on the part of the motorist involved in your case. We will take time to understand the pain and suffering you have endured as a result of this accident, and work alongside you to make sure your best interests are being represented. Our goal is to get you the fair compensation you deserve to help you pay your medical expenses and make up for any lost wages.

PRODUCT LIABILITY

Product liability law holds manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retail vendors responsible for damages caused by a range of defective or damaged products:

  • Defective Motor Vehicles
  • Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs
  • Poorly Designed Consumer Goods

Dangerous products can lead to broken bones, illness, and other physical injuries to an individual. A Utah personal injury lawyer from Anderson & Rogers will seek the maximum possible compensation for your personal injury claim, and hold companies promoting dangerous products accountable.

SEMI-TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Semi-trucks carrying freight are all too often illegally overloaded, weighing tens of thousands of pounds. Sometimes, truck drivers must also maintain high speeds in order to keep tight shipping schedules. Consequently, accidents involving big-rigs, dump trucks, or 18-wheelers usually result in very serious injury or even death. Truckers must abide by a very specific set of regulations and laws to ensure as safe a driving environment as possible:

  • How much weight the truck is allowed to carry
  • How long a trucker can operate the vehicle before resting
  • What type of material (hazardous or otherwise) the truck is allowed to carry
  • Speeds at which the truck is permitted to operate
  • How often maintenance on the vehicle is required
  • Keeping accurate logs of stops, times, deliveries, pick-ups, etc.

If you have been involved in an accident with a large commercial vehicle, you will be dealing with a unique and complex set of rules that most attorneys are unfamiliar with. Working with a Utah personal injury lawyer from Anderson & Rogers will help you navigate the unique circumstances surrounding your claim. We will search out the facts and evidence necessary to bring your case to fair resolution.
