Car Accident Attorneys Help Victims Rebuild Lives
Car accidents are a fact of life, and most of us have been involved in at least one collision. While the majority of accidents are fender benders, a serious car crash is another situation altogether. When a traffic accident has life-altering consequences, an accident victim may benefit greatly from the help of a personal injury lawyer. Our attorneys, Norman J. Younker, Ashton J. Hyde, and John Macfarlane are skilled car accident attorneys who help victims throughout Utah obtain just compensation. If you or a family member has been involved in an accident, contact our law office as soon as possible -- preferably before speaking with an insurance representative.
Do You Need an Attorney?
An established firm such as Younker Hyde Macfarlane, has the knowledge and resources to help you deal with insurance companies, whether the other party’s or, in the case of an uninsured motorist, your own. It is important to understand that insurance adjustors are in the business of saving money, so they are always eager to minimize a claim. If a serious injury occurs, your losses can be extensive, both at present and well into the future.
In the case of a catastrophic or fatal accident, the long-term consequences are difficult to comprehend in the midst of the immediate tragedy. When we represent you, you will not interact with insurance personnel at all, and we encourage all of our prospective clients to avoid speaking to claims adjusters until after calling us. As your attorneys, we will be your advocate, working on your behalf while you focus on healing and rebuilding your life.
We are very thorough, and we will never settle prematurely. We work diligently to build your case, and are always more than prepared to take it to trial.
An accident victim should be compensated for medical costs, time lost from work, property damage, and other losses. If the at-fault driver was severely negligent or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering. In the case of a wrongful death, reimbursable losses include financial support, companionship, and other intangibles, and punitive damages are sometimes awarded. Your attorney's fees will be included in your settlement or verdict, so you will not need to worry about legal bills during this difficult time.
How We Can Help
Our firm has been practicing law for decades. We enjoy an excellent reputation, receiving most of our new clients by word of mouth. Led by attorney Norman Younker, our personal injury group will fight aggressively for you, and you will know we have done everything possible to successfully litigate your accident case.
At Younker Hyde Macfarlane, we make sure you have a thorough medical examination, and utilize our network of resources for expert input on your case.
That may mean accident reconstruction, forensics, financial planning, and more. Sometimes a case is complex, and the liability for the accident lies with several parties. A sleep-deprived driver’s employer may be partially responsible, or a faulty tire may result in a product liability claim. We are very thorough, and we will never settle prematurely. We work diligently to build your case, and are always more than prepared to take it to trial.
