Utah’s Attorneys for
Car Crash Injuries

Have you been injured in an accident?

We’re here to help

If you’ve been injured in a car crash, you are likely dealing with a lot. Here, we’ll walk you through Utah law regarding personal injury relating to car crashes. Please note that a statute of limitations applies to these cases, meaning that you have a set time limit to submit a lawsuit. The sooner you begin the case, the sooner you can beat the deadlines imposed by the state of Utah.

Utah:
a no-fault insurance state

Utah is a no-fault insurance state, which means that you have to turn to your insurance company first for compensation (31A-22-309). However, you can pursue legal action outside of a claim to your insurance company if one or more of the following apply to your situation:

  • Death

  • Dismemberment

  • Permanent disfigurement

  • Permanent disability or permanent impairment

  • Medical expenses exceed $3,000

Vehicle or Property Damage

For vehicle or property damage resulting from a car accident, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit

Car Accident Injuries

For injuries resulting from a car accident, you have four years from the date of the accident to file your suit.

Death Resulting From A Car Accident

If a death resulted from a car accident, you have two years from the date of the victim’s death (not the date of the accident) to file a suit.

Modified Comparative Negligence State

Utah is a modified comparative negligence state. This means that a jury may determine that you bear a percentage of the negligence and thus reduce the compensation you receive. (78-B-5-818)

Let’s say you’re seeking $50,000 for damages and other associated costs. If the jury decides that you bear 10% of the negligence, then the amount you’d receive would be reduced to $45,000.
