Seeking Compensation for the Injured in South Jordan
Whether you were hurt in a car crash, a dog attack, or a workplace accident, you shouldn’t have to suffer because another person acted in a careless or wrongful manner. By filing a personal injury claim in the civil justice system, you can seek “damages” to account for your physical, financial, and emotional losses.
Here in the state of Utah, you only have 4 years from the date of your injury to sue for damages, although this statute of limitations can vary depending on the nature of your case – and the nature of your losses. For instance, there is only a 2-year statute of limitations if you are bringing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. Because of these subtle differences under the law, it’s important to speak with a seasoned personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
In a civil lawsuit, you may be able to seek recovery for the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including exams, doctor’s visits, prescriptions, and procedures
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Pain and suffering (physical and emotional)
- Property damage
- In-home care and home remodeling for disabilities
- Past and future lost wages, bonuses, and benefits
- Wrongful death
Personal Injury Cases We Take On
Although the causes for your injuries may vary, most personal injury claims center on the legal concept of negligence. In order to have a case, you must show that another person or organization failed to meet the basic “duty of care” required of them in that situation. For instance, if you suffer life-altering paralysis injuries in a drunk driving accident, the courts will most likely maintain that the intoxicated driver had an obligation to avoid drinking and that they were negligent with your safety.
At Pearson Butler, we can help residents throughout South Jordan and Utah with the following case types:
- Car and truck accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Premises liability cases
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workers’ compensation claims
- Nursing home abuse
- Dog bites
