Injury Attorney


John Macfarlane chose to pursue personal injury law because he recognized the potential an injury lawyer has to make a real difference in the lives of everyday people. Many injured clients who come to our Salt Lake City practice are unable to work, attend school, or afford costly hourly fees for an attorney. John Macfarlane and our team are pleased to offer free consultations and contingency services so clients can receive fair compensation.

WEBVTT 00:00:05.840 --> 00:00:08.640 The reason I chose injury law is because it 00:00:08.670 --> 00:00:14.240 is the 1 of the few areas where you can affect real change 00:00:15.040 --> 00:00:19.840 and get good results for your clients, where your interests are aligned, 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:24.720 and it doesn't matter how rich, poor, well connected your clients are. 00:00:24.740 --> 00:00:27.400 I had clients who are have been disabled 00:00:27.420 --> 00:00:31.120 for years, you know, clients that have been a paraplegic for years. 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:33.360 No income. We're unable to go to school. 00:00:33.360 --> 00:00:36.160 I've had construction workers as clients. I've had doctors as clients. 00:00:36.180 --> 00:00:37.600 I've had lawyers as clients. 00:00:37.840 --> 00:00:39.880 I'm fortunately, we live in a world where 00:00:39.920 --> 00:00:44.760 the cost of legal fees is enough that in in a medical malpractice case, 00:00:44.790 --> 00:00:49.880 if if my wife was injured and I needed to hire myself at an hourly rate. 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:52.600 I likely couldn't afford it all the way through trial. 00:00:52.630 --> 00:00:54.040 It would be so expensive. 00:00:54.320 --> 00:00:59.560 What I really love about what I do and drove me to do this type of law is 00:01:00.560 --> 00:01:02.640 I'm tied at the hip with my clients financially. 00:01:02.960 --> 00:01:06.160 I think there's a tendency for many people to believe, look. 00:01:06.320 --> 00:01:08.560 Lawyers are looking out for them else. They're greedy. 00:01:08.560 --> 00:01:09.920 They're looking out for the money. 00:01:09.920 --> 00:01:11.680 And I always joke with my clients and say, 00:01:11.680 --> 00:01:13.440 Even if you assume that's true, please don't. 00:01:13.440 --> 00:01:15.200 But if you do, that's great for you. 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:16.320 Because guess what? 00:01:16.330 --> 00:01:18.080 If I think if I just work this much 00:01:18.080 --> 00:01:20.240 harder, I can get this much better result for you. 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:22.080 It's a better result for all of us. 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:24.800 My interests are the exact same of theirs from the beginning. 00:01:25.320 --> 00:01:27.720 Number 1, try and make change. 00:01:27.800 --> 00:01:30.360 Number 2, get the best possible result 00:01:30.600 --> 00:01:34.520 for my client because it's possible result for me and the law firm as well. 00:01:34.550 --> 00:01:36.360 I love that relationship I have 00:01:36.360 --> 00:01:39.320 with my clients, and that's why I chose to do this area of law.
