Highly Favourable! They fought for me and treated me like a family member.
Brigham Richards was the attorney that helped with my injury case. This was my first time dealing with something like this, I'm glad I had an attorney that was always available to guide me through this uncomfortable process and help me get all my medical expenses taken care of.
A year ago a was involved in an accident, I was very blessed to find the people of Valley Law to help me with this, since day one they work with me in a very professional manner, always worry about my well-being, I recommend them 100% Mr. Brigham never missed my calls or text messages. I am very happy and satisfied of how they handled my case.!
First time needing a lawyer, Ricardo Quintero helped me out through the process of submitting documents and getting me appointments with the doctors from the injuries from the crash. I dont think I could have figured it all out or got the settlement I did without their help. I appreciate you guys so much!
I had to call because I had a personal injury claim, Ricardo answered my call. He made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. Any time I needed help throughout my case, Ricardo was there for me. I had the best customer service!! I absolutely recommend him and the team at Valley Law!!
We’ve all been told that it’s important to have great insurance…. But what nobody talks about enough, is having great representation when someone els’s insurance doesn’t want to do the right thing. Thankfully, I found Valley Law! The Valley Law Team has been incredibly supportive throughout my claim and medical recovery, and their insight into the legal/medical/insurance process, is top notch. Ricardo has been incredible, and always picks up the phone to answer my questions and concerns…. I probably call a little too much, and his patience with me and...
Brigham is very attentive to his clients. The level of genuine treatment given to me during the hard times that I went through due to the accident, was calming and helped me feel more at ease. Valley Law stayed on top of my case and helped me recover from the time and emotional effort that I spent through the entire case. The provider network that Valley Law has contact with were also kind and sensitive to my case. Valley Law took excellent care of me. Thank you.
Brigham was the attorney who helped me with my car accident, and he was constantly calling to check on how I was doing and to give me updates on my case. They were able to work with all the parties involved and I didn’t have to stress about anything concerning bills, talking to other people, or anything related to my accident. I feel they did the process go smoothly and were able to resolve everything without any issues. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.
I have worked with Brigham and Ricardo on numerous cases. They always give the highest level of care and sensitivity, working their hardest to give our clients the best and most helpful experience. I'm grateful my office has the opportunity to work closely with them!
Brigham and the whole team were incredible. I had a complicated case but it never deterred them from doing their best. They made sure I always knew what was going on behind the scenes and were available for any and all questions I had. Beyond grateful that I had their help to handle all of this, thank you!
Even a relatively minor injury can be painful, expensive, and disruptive to your life. Sometimes accidents are impossible to predict or avoid, but in many cases, they happen due to another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, if you’ve been hurt by someone else’s oversight, you might pay the price for their mistake. A personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation for your damages so you can move on with your life. Valley Law Accident and Injury Lawyers in Salt Lake City will help you secure your legal victory.
There is no shortage of ways a person can be injured. Whether or not you have a strong case for a personal injury suit depends on our ability to prove another party was at fault, not the type of accident. However, here are some of the more common situations we see in personal injury cases:
These can include car accidents and collisions involving semis or other large trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles traveling on the roadways. We also see cases where a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorcycle rider was struck by a motor vehicle.
Proving fault in a motor vehicle accident is sometimes challenging, especially if the other driver insists you are at fault. Remember that their car insurance company will want to believe them because it gives the insurance carrier an excuse to deny your claim. You should also know that Utah uses modified comparative negligence statutes for personal injury cases, including car accidents.
How does it work? Under the state’s rules for modified comparative negligence, an injured party can collect damages only if they are less than 50 percent at fault for an accident. They will lose any percentage of fault they had in the accident. So if you were 10 percent at fault, you could collect 90 percent of your damages. The result is that if the other driver’s insurance company claims you were at fault, they don’t have to convince anyone that you were totally responsible in order to reduce their liability.
Modified comparative negligence applies to other types of personal injury cases as well, but car insurance companies are particularly good at using it to their advantage. Fortunately, a Salt Lake City personal injury attorney can help by gathering evidence and making a case that you were not to blame for the accident.
Roofers, construction workers, and construction helpers are all in the top 25 most dangerous jobs in the US. However, you can get hurt in almost any job, and that includes car accidents that occur while you are driving somewhere on a work task.
If you are a W2 employee and you are hurt at work, you should qualify for workers’ compensation, a no-fault system designed to provide compensation for injured workers without a lengthy lawsuit. While you do not have to prove fault in a workers’ comp claim, there are still multiple reasons your claim can be denied, such as:
If your claim has been denied, your employer is giving you the runaround about filing the paperwork, or you want to make sure your paperwork is correct, a workers’ compensation attorney can help you fight for your right to workers’ compensation benefits.
Additionally, we will review your case to learn if you may have a third-party claim. While the workers’ comp system prevents most lawsuits against employers for on-the-job injuries, you can still sue a third party for damages not covered by workers’ comp. You will need to be able to present evidence that the third party was responsible for your injury. For example, if you were using a piece of equipment that malfunctioned and caused your injury, and we found evidence the equipment’s defect led to the accident, you might have a case against the equipment manufacturer.
Many people suffer injuries or even death due to medical mistakes or defective products. In fact, it’s estimated that medical mistakes alone could cause up to 251,000 deaths a year and even more injuries. Another 128,000 people die from drugs prescribed to them, and about 2.74 million people suffer serious adverse drug reactions each year.
Unfortunately, it can be challenging to determine what happened when you’ve suffered an unexpected, severe complication. Sometimes providers attribute a complication or adverse reaction to the patient’s original diagnosis or give a vague explanation like, “Complications can happen with surgery.” While this is true, complications can also arise because the surgeon made a mistake, because the patient was given the wrong medication or dosage, or because of a defective medical device, and these situations aren’t always made clear to the patient.
If you’re wondering whether you experienced medical malpractice or an unexpected side effect from a medication or device, a Salt Lake City personal injury lawyer can help you learn more about what happened and your options moving forward.
These cases occur when someone is injured on another party’s property. Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents are very common, but you can be injured in various ways due to the property owner’s negligence. Inadequate security is another frequent issue – if you are the victim of a crime in a public place like a store or hotel, the business may be at fault for failing to provide enough security.
The owner of a business or private residence has a duty of care to ensure the property is reasonably safe for visitors. If they fail to do so, they could be liable. In most cases, homeowner’s or business insurance will cover your damages, but you will need to demonstrate the owner was negligent.
Lakes and waterways in the Salt Lake City area offer opportunities for fun and recreation, but if a boating excursion goes wrong, you could be seriously injured. Following a boat crash, you may struggle to remember what happened or how, and it’s not always easy to determine fault. Potentially liable parties include:
Additionally, you may or may not be covered by boat insurance, depending on the situation and the type of coverage on the boat. Sorting out fault can be complicated, but your boating accident lawyer can help determine the cause and explain your options for pursuing compensation.
Four elements of negligence must be established in any personal injury case:
Your lawyer’s investigative team will gather evidence to prove these four points. They may interview witnesses, request black box data from a car accident, look at other electronic evidence like smartphone records, and search for photos or videos of an accident. If there is a way to prove your case, we’ll find it.

Helping victims is all we do.
Several factors can affect whether you have a personal injury case, such as the type of injuries you sustained and who is at fault. If you have been hurt, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
After being injured in an accident, people often wonder how much their personal injury case is worth. The value of your personal injury case depends on a number of things, including the cause and circumstances surrounding your accident, your injuries, limits on insurance coverage, etc. Ultimately, the value of your personal injury case depends on the damages you incur, including:
Based on our personal injury attorneys’ experience, the value of your case may be estimated after assessing your medical bills and records, police reports, and other evidence, such as the progress or deterioration of your mental state after the accident.
