Some health insurance companies have a right to recover from medical malpractice settlements, which reduces the total compensation pool for victims. Our attorneys in Salt Lake City will negotiate with your insurance provider so you can personally recover as much as possible. Younker Hyde Macfarlane isn't afraid to go up against big companies on behalf of everyday people like you.
