In order to have a bodily injury claim against the at-fault insurance company in the State of Utah, your medical expenses for injuries as a result of the auto accident should exceed the statutory personal injury protection minimum, which in Utah is $3,000.00.
You are entitled to be treated with respect. Furthermore, you have the right to be compensated for damages incurred as a result of the accident. This includes medical expenses, property damage, wage loss, and household services. These rights are there to ensure that you, the non-fault party, are made whole as a result of the accident.
You have insurance, but do you really know if you are covered? There are different protections and limits within your insurance policy that are important to understand to ensure that you are protected in case of an accident. In certain situations, you will need to access these protections when there is no coverage or insufficient coverage by the at-fault party and their insurance company.
This is a complex question that requires a thorough analysis of information, as every claim is unique. No two claims are the same, no matter how similar the accidents or injuries may have been. Evaluating a claim requires taking into account information such as your injuries, the accident, the parties involved, insurance companies and coverage, etc. It is with this information that an experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your claim and begin settlement negotiations with the insurance company.
There is no definite time to finalize an injury claim. Often times the duration of time can be aided or prolonged by the insurance company. However, a personal injury attorney should always be available to speak with you and update you on the status of your claim.
