Unfortunately, when you’ve been injured and need help getting your life back on track, you can’t depend on an insurance company to do the right thing. But a personal injury attorney can fight for your rights and work to recover your damages. At Valley Law Accident and Injury Lawyers, responsibility is a key philosophy in our practice and is the foundation of everything we do. We never stop working for our clients, from investigating their injuries to negotiating with insurance companies to litigating the case in court if necessary. Our team is dedicated to ensuring you get the support you need to recover.

If you or a loved one have been injured, you may wonder if your situation counts as a personal injury. A personal injury is simply an injury caused by another party’s negligence – this other party could be another person, a company, or an organization. However, it may not always be clear who was at fault or if their actions were negligent, so if you have questions or concerns about how your injury happened, please contact us for a free consultation. It’s easy to schedule a 100% free, confidential case review with no obligation when you call (801) 810-9999 or contact us online.



What Are Your Personal Injury Practice Areas?

Below are our typical practice areas. Please note that if your injury doesn’t seem to fit into one of these categories, it’s possible you may still have a personal injury case. We’re always available for a free consultation if you’d like to learn more.

Although most people take driving a car seriously, there are still some careless drivers on the road who can cause serious accidents. Some people believe they can’t sue for a car accident because of Utah’s “no-fault” car accident law, but this law is often misunderstood. The no-fault law is meant to eliminate litigation for less severe car accidents with small amounts of damage. Each resident of Utah is required to carry $3,000 in Personal Injury Protection, or PIP insurance, and use that coverage if they are injured in an accident.

However, you can still pursue a claim if you have more than $3,000 in medical expenses, and then you can also seek compensation for other damages, including lost income and pain and suffering. You may also have a claim if you suffered a broken bone or developed any permanent disability or impairment from your accident.

Large trucks can cause a disproportionate amount of damage in a collision with a passenger vehicle. For this reason, there are many regulations on trucks and truck drivers, and trucking companies usually have a robust screening process for hiring drivers. Even so, sometimes, a truck driver makes a mistake that can lead to an accident. In other situations, another party, such as the trucking company or a third party responsible for loading the trailer, may actually be responsible.

Working out who was at fault in a truck accident can be complicated, and the insurance company may be inclined to blame you. Your truck accident lawyer will collect evidence to show you were not at fault and build a case against the responsible party. Damages may be very high in these cases, and we will fight to get you the settlement you deserve.

In the same way that a collision between a truck and a passenger vehicle usually causes more damage to the occupants of the passenger vehicle, a collision between a passenger vehicle and a motorcycle disproportionately harms the motorcyclist. Without seatbelts or airbags, the biker is more likely to suffer severe injuries, especially if they are ejected from the bike.

Many motorcycle accidents happen because the car driver simply didn’t see the bike due to its small size. However, that doesn’t prevent the car driver or their insurance company from trying to blame the motorcyclist for the accident. But you can fight back with the help of an experienced motorcycle lawyer who will negotiate with the insurance company to get you a fair settlement.

Like motorcyclists, pedestrians also suffer high rates of injuries and fatalities in car collisions. Utah’s laws are somewhat balanced between protecting the rights of pedestrians and drivers – motorists are expected to exercise care when driving around pedestrians, but people on foot are expected to obey laws about where they can walk and how to cross the street.

If you were injured as a pedestrian, you may have multiple medical bills and could be out of work for a long time. The insurance company could reduce their liability by shifting some of the blame to you, or they might undervalue your claim. You can protect yourself in this situation by engaging the services of a pedestrian accident lawyer.

Utah is a beautiful state for biking, but a careless driver can leave you with broken bones, internal injuries, or even a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The driver may claim that you were crossing the street illegally or otherwise at fault for your accident, and their insurance company might agree. If you’re struggling to recover compensation from the insurance company or are unsure how to start, a bicycle accident lawyer can help.

While Utah may be known for its desert landscapes, it also boasts more than 2,000 lakes and 89,000 miles of streams, making it a prime location for boating. While boating is a leisure activity, boats are large vehicles that can cause serious damage if things go wrong. Accidents involving boats could lead to drowning, broken bones, head injuries, back and spine injuries, and more. Additionally, there are multiple parties who may be liable after a boating accident, making it difficult to determine how to seek compensation. Your lawyer can help you establish fault and pursue your damages.

While people generally know what a boat or car accident is, many aren’t sure what premises liability is or if it’s happened to them. Premises liability refers to situations where a person is injured on someone else’s property because of the owner’s negligence. It encompasses a wide variety of situations, from slipping and falling in a store to being assaulted in a dimly-lit parking lot. The bottom line is that if you were injured on another party’s property, it’s a good idea to check with an attorney to determine if you have a case.

New construction is skyrocketing in Utah due to both population growth and the relatively low cost of building a house versus buying one. This can be lucrative for people in the construction business – unless an injury on the job site sidelines you. Construction workers and helpers, roofers, and crane operators have some of the most dangerous jobs in the country, and you deserve all of your Worker’s Compensation benefits if you’re hurt. Unfortunately, many people struggle to acquire these benefits due to claim denials or difficulties with their employers. A construction site accident attorney can help you get the Worker’s Compensation benefits you need to recover from your injuries and pay your bills in the meantime.

In some areas, these low-speed vehicles can legally travel on the roads, and as you might have guessed, riders are at high risk in accidents with cars. Additionally, some people are injured in single-vehicle crashes on the golf course or other private property – falling out of a golf cart is the most common cause of golf cart injuries. If you were injured in a golf cart or ATV accident, your attorney will help you determine who may have been at fault and seek compensation.

You expect your medication or health devices to help instead of hurt you, but unfortunately, some people suffer severe adverse effects from a medication or medical device. To complicate matters, it may not be immediately apparent what caused your condition, and some people may struggle for years to get a diagnosis for their symptoms. If you suspect you were harmed by a dangerous drug or medical device, don’t hesitate to consult a personal injury lawyer to learn if you have a case against the manufacturer.

When you drop your child off at daycare, you believe they will be properly cared for until you return. But what if your child suffers a serious injury at their childcare facility? If the facility was negligent in a way that led to their injury, you could seek compensation to help cover your child’s medical care and other damages.

We like to think of dogs as our best friends, but sometimes, an aggressive dog can bite or otherwise injure a person. Because of Utah’s strict liability laws regarding dog bites, you may be able to seek compensation from the owner in most situations.

Grieving the death of a loved one is a challenging process, but for some people, it’s prolonged by concerns that their relative’s death could have been avoided. If your loved one passed due to the negligence of another party – whether it was in a car accident, a boat accident, or from a defective medical device – we may be able to pursue damages. Although a wrongful death claim can’t restore everything you’ve lost, it could allow you to care for your family and move forward without financial worries.

Construction workers aren’t the only people who might be hurt at work. On-the-job injuries happen in every industry, from retail to food service to office work. If you’ve been denied Worker’s Compensation for any reason or have been told you don’t qualify as a contractor, we recommend speaking with a Worker’s Compensation attorney. We can advise you on your options for pursuing a claim or seeking compensation through other routes.
