Caring for Clients After Accidents Since 2004
At the law office of Jeff Metler, your Utah personal injury attorney, we treat each case with the highest level of integrity and care possible to help you begin the healing process. Insurance companies want you to believe they can take care of everything and that you don’t need an attorney. The truth is, they have been trained to size you up and offer you the lowest possible settlement that they think you will take. These amounts usually won’t cover the long-term care that will be necessary to treat your injury, not to mention the loss of income and pain and suffering.

Utah’s No-Fault Laws for Personal Injury Cases
Utah holds to a no-fault car insurance system for personal injury cases. In this type of situation, your injuries must meet the statutory threshold required to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Utah is one of twelve states that holds to a no-fault system. This type of insurance system does make it even more necessary to turn to a trustworthy attorney who can help you file your claim in a way that goes after the highest compensation possible.
You deserve the advice and proper perspective on how to best handle your personal injury case. We treat each case with the highest level of integrity and care possible to help you begin the healing process.
What are the first steps after an accident?
1) See a doctor about your injuries
2) Contact an attorney
3) Don’t speak with the other driver’s insurance company
4) Always be truthful with the doctor and attorney
How do I know if I have a case?
There are 5 key factors:
5) $3,000 or more in medical bills
What do insurance companies not want me to know?
Insurance companies train employees to pay out the very minimum. Adjusters are often awarded bonuses based on low payouts. Some insurance companies want you to believe you are causing financial hardship to the person who is at fault. The truth is settlements are paid by the insurance company, not individuals. Insurance companies have recently started assigning 20% blame to the no fault driver so they can justify paying less. This holds true even if the accident was clearly the fault of one person. These amounts usually won’t cover the long-term care that will be necessary to treat your injury, not to mention the loss of income and pain and suffering.
How much will a personal injury attorney cost me?
At the office of Jeff Metler, there is never a charge unless we collect money for you.
How long do I have to file my case in Utah?
In the state of Utah, you have just four years to bring your case to the court if you have suffered injury as the result of another person’s negligence. Although this time limit, known as the statute of limitations, is longer than many other states, it still restricts a victim from pursuing compensation if they wait too long. If you or a loved one do not file your personal injury claim with the Utah court system within this time, they may refuse to hear it altogether.
