"They Treat You Right and Do The Work To Get The Answers."
We were referred to Yonker|Hide|Macfarlane because of medical malpractice that ended up taking the life of our child. Although there is nothing that can bring our son back, we found great emotional support and even hope at such a fragile time while working with them. We met with Mckay Corbett at first and he attentively listened for hours then John Macfarlane took over the case. He is a compassionate lawyer, who genuinely wanted to help bring justice and peace to us... He's also full of good judgment and managed to, with his many skills and perseverance, get us a fair and good settlement that gave us the sense of closure we were looking for, besides the fact that we felt at peace by knowing someone else (John Macfarlane and other members of their staff) also agree about the wrong that was done to our son and our family.View On Google
When my twin brother passed away unexpectedly I found myself in a pretty bad place. Since I was out of State I didn't know who to ask for help. I needed to find someone and luckily I found Younker, Hyde & Macfarlane. John Macfarlane and all of the other staff and legal assistants at the office were great. It took time but they were able to find answers and to get to a settlement that worked. I would recommend to anyone that happens to need Medical Malpractice Attorneys to contact them as they treat you right and do the work to get the answers. It's nice when everything is done you can say "Thank you" and rest knowing that they did everything they could do.

Medical malpractice is our focus, and our attorneys are capable of handling all types of medical negligence and birth injury cases, no matter how complicated.
Spinal cord injuries can result in permanent disability and the need for lifelong care, which is why it's so important for victims to seek financial compensation from the liable person or party.
When medical professionals fail to accurately diagnose a medical condition, it can result in serious side effects and even death. The personal injury lawyers at our Salt Lake City practice can file a lawsuit to help victims seek a recovery.
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of preventable injuries and death. Whether you were involved in a head-on, rear-end, sideswipe, rollover, or other type of auto accident, a personal injury lawyer can represent your best interests against the negligent person or party and their insurance company.
Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating; their lack of protection can result in catastrophic injuries such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, road rash, loss of limb, and broken bones. When seeking compensation, most victims are up against skilled lawyers for the defendant's insurance company. That is why it is so important to have a personal injury attorney representing your best interests.
When a loved one dies as a result of another person's negligent behavior, we are here to help family members file a lawsuit and seek compensation for losses associated with the death.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
A statute of limitation is the amount of time in which victims or their families have to file a lawsuit under each state's personal injury laws. Once the statute of limitations runs out, individuals no longer have the legal right to file a lawsuit against the person or party responsible for the injuries or death. However, there are some exceptions:
- Notice of a potential claim is required for certain healthcare providers within one year.
- In certain circumstances, the statute of limitations is tolled until a reasonable and prudent person would have known of a potential claim, however no claim can be filed four years after the date of the negligent act.
We always recommend that clients contact the personal injury lawyers at our Salt Lake City firm as soon as possible so we can review the details of your case.
Benefits of Hiring an Attorney on a Contingency Fee Basis
"Excellent Staff and Lawyers."
Mr Macfarlane contacted us today about our pending medical malpractice lawsuit. His pleasant and easy manner in discussing the case was a nice surprise. He explained our case in easy layman terms. I highly recommend this firm for any legal matters that anyone has in the future.
Very helpful and excellent staff and lawyers. Helped us receive peace of mind and helped settle our case with our young son that passed away. Without them we wouldn't have some of the closure that we now have. John was excellent and always answered our questions and was available when we needed him.
