What to Look for when Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney By on July 19, 2014

Pen and glasses resting over lawsuit paperworkPeople who have suffered an injury due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another individual or party are likely due financial compensation for damages that have occurred. Financial burdens such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as emotional pain and suffering should not be the responsibility of the victims of these accidents. A personal injury attorney can aid in the collection of these expenses. However, the key to collecting this compensation is representation by the right personal injury attorney. With a full range of lawyers, including auto accident attorneys who work with reconstruction experts to determine liability, Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC has all the important factors that one should look for when choosing a personal injury attorney: experience, expertise, and a history of successful litigation.


Education is an important aspect of a successful attorney, but real life experience in the practice of the law is the truest form of education. Founded in 1919, our law firm has a strong history of representing the rights of those in Utah who have been injured due to another party’s negligence. Our current team of 50 attorneys is led by Norm Younker, a Salt Lake City attorney who has been practicing the law himself since 1988. Both individually and combined, our lawyers have the superior experience that is beneficial in working even the most difficult of cases.


In the field of personal injury, there are many types of cases that we come across. People may suffer from catastrophic injuries, injuries that occurred as the result of a car accident, truck accident, boating accident, or motorcycle accident, injuries that occurred at a work or construction site, or those that are the result of medical malpractice or a product malfunction. Each of these types of cases requires a unique knowledge and experience in order to ensure quality representation. We have attorneys on staff with expertise in all matters of personal injury law. In addition, we work with experts in the field so that we can accurately collect information from the site of the accident or injury in order to create a solid case of determining liability. Our expertise gives us an edge over many other legal firms and allows us to take on cases that many other attorneys turn down.

Successful Litigation

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a personal injury attorney is results. Our firm puts all of our effort into creating a case that will end favorably for our clients, which is why we have a strong history of successful litigation. Our client’s best interest is always our top priority. While some law firms work toward reaching a settlement, we prepare each case as though it will go to trial. We are not satisfied until our clients are satisfied.
