The permanence of spinal cord injuries means that a lifetime of medical and rehabilitative treatment must be provided for the victim. The aim of our catastrophic injury attorneys is to file an injury claim and obtain a jury verdict or a settlement.

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.

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.

Won't I Get Money from My Insurance Company?

Possibly but the insurance company's bottom line is their first priority. Some medical treatments for catastrophic injuries may be covered to some extent while others may not. Here are a few extremely important reasons to enlist the help of the catastrophic injury lawyers at our Salt Lake City, UT, injury law office:

Excessive Medical Bills

Your medical bills may far exceed your health care coverage limits by hundreds of thousands of dollars. The rest will come out of your and your family's pockets.

Out-of-Network Costs

If the doctors and specialists you need to see are not in your network, it could greatly reduce or completely eliminate health care coverage for much-needed medical treatment.

Rising Treatment Costs

As medical treatment costs continue to rise, many insurance companies are reducing or cutting certain coverages, all while insurance premiums are rising.

Continuing Bills

Your benefits may dry up way before your medical bills stop being sent to you. What will you do then if you don't have financial security from a favorable settlement?

On Behalf of Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC

We look forward to meeting you and helping you receive the peace, closure, and financial comfort that you deserve. Thank you.
