Torts and the Basics of Civil Litigation
A tort is a civil wrong that breaches a duty of care and infringes upon the victim's rights. Tort law differs from criminal law in that no illegal actions need to have occurred for a tort claim to exist. The simple act of wronging a person and causing injury can lead to legal liability. If this is the case, the attorneys at our Salt Lake City law firm can help you file a medical malpractice or personal injury claim against the liable parties.
During your initial consultation, we can review your case, determine your claim eligibility, and recommend the best course of action.
But what if you're unsure whether or not you have a case? Your answers to the following questions may provide you with a better idea of your claim eligibility.
- Have you been injured in an auto accident?
- Have you been injured due to medical negligence?
- Has a defective or dangerous product caused you injury?
- Have you suffered a dog bite injury?
- Did you slip and fall as a result of poorly maintained grounds?
- Were you injured on a private or commercial property?
- Have you been injured on the job?
If you've answered "yes" to any of the questions outlined above, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice or personal injury claim.

Filing a Claim on Another Party's Behalf
It should be noted that it may also be possible to file a claim on someone else's behalf. In the tragic event of a loved one's wrongful death, you can file a claim on behalf of the decedent for damages relating to:
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
In other cases, such as cases involving catastrophic injury, it may be possible to file a claim on the victim's behalf due to incapacity.
Though the above indicators may provide you with a better idea of your eligibility to file a medical malpractice or personal injury claim, a consultation at our office in Salt Lake City will be necessary to determine if you have a case. We handle all medical malpractice and personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we collect no fees for our services unless we are able to recover damages on your behalf.
