A Word about Insurance Adjusters

Can we let you in on a little "not-so-secret" secret regarding insurance companies? Insurance adjusters don't always have their clients' best interests at heart. Their job is to minimize car accident claims to save their employers as much money as possible. You don't need that kind of "nickel and dime" help after being injured in a car accident. If you are a car accident victim and the other driver is at fault, you need the renowned law firm of Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC, in Salt Lake City to fight for the compensation you rightly deserve.

Younker Hyde Macfarlane worked with me on an auto settlement after my husband was killed in an accident. I was left as a single mother with four year old twin girls and a baby boy. I cannot say enough about the work my attorney, John Macfarlane, and the other staff at Younker Hyde Macfarlane did on my behalf to achieve an incredible result for me and my kids. John Macfarlane proved to be a skilled negotiator and was adept at resolving all of the issues involved with my case. Furthermore, it made all the difference that I was treated with total kindness, compassion and generosity by everyone I dealt with at Younker Hyde Macfarlane. Highly recommended.

You've Made the Right Choice and Retained Our Counsel...

What Are the Next Steps?

Physical Examination

We'll make sure you undergo a thorough physical examination, utilizing our vast network of medical professionals for expert input on your diagnosis and condition.

Gathering Evidence

Medical bills, medical reports, police reports, employment records, witness statements, etc., will be gathered for evidence.

Expert Analysis

We may enlist experts in accident reconstruction, forensics, financial planning, and other areas to work on your case.

Contacting Liable Parties

If your case is complex and the liability for the accident lies with several parties, we will reach out to those involved. For example, we may contact the employer of a sleep-deprived delivery driver. If your case is related to a product liability claim, we may contact the manufacturer of faulty parts.

Settlement Demand

A demand letter detailing your desired financial settlement will be drafted on your behalf and sent to the liable party's attorney or insurance company.

Lawsuit Filing (If Needed)

If a settlement is not reached, our attorneys will file a lawsuit against the liable party with the appropriate court. A favorable settlement may still be possible to avoid the stress of a trial.
"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." Younker Hyde MacFarlane

Is a Settlement Better Than a Trial?

We will never settle if we feel the financial amount offered is not fair to you or your family. If we need to go to trial, we will be more than prepared to fight for fair compensation. However, there are advantages to seeking a favorable settlement instead of going through a potentially long, emotionally draining, and stressful court trial. Advantages of a settlement include:
You can receive financial reimbursement faster to pay for medical bills, etc.
There could be fewer legal service fees deducted from your compensation.
Multiple court hearings are avoided, saving you time and stress.
Jury decisions can be unpredictable. The result could be zero compensation.
