When tragedy strikes your family in the form of an automobile accident or other cause of personal injury or wrongful death, the Salt Lake City Personal Injury Lawyer at Nelson, Taylor & Associates dedicate themselves to getting you the compensation you are owed to cover your expenses and relieve further financial distress.
When one person is injured because of the negligence of another, the law holds that negligent person responsible to the injured person for the damages caused, including: present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages, and pain & suffering. However, obtaining a fair amount of compensation is never an easy matter. As the plaintiff in a personal injury case, the burden falls on you to prove that the accident was the fault of the other party. The defendant, meanwhile, represented by a team of insurance company lawyers, will argue instead that you were to blame, that your injuries are not as serious as you claim, or that your injuries were not caused by the accident. If the jury believes that you contributed to the accident and are more at fault than the defendant, even just one percent more, then you will not be allowed to recover any compensation for your injuries, despite the other party’s negligence or reckless conduct.
