When you have been in a car accident and injured in Southern Utah, you are suddenly dealing with a lot of tough responsibility. You will be worried about getting the proper medical care that you need, and also worried about fixing your car, and of course getting back to work and your everyday life. All of these things can be expensive. It can be comforting to have someone on your side, especially someone that lives near you and understands where you are coming from. At McMullin Legal Group, we are all Southern Utah natives, as well as attorneys and legal professionals that can give you the best possible advice about moving forward with your personal injury claim.
Once you have sought medical attention for your injuries, which should of course be your first priority, you may start to wonder about how everything will be paid for. First thing to know, is that Utah is a no-fault state. This means that your own auto insurance will kick in to pay for your injuries first. The coverage that is built into your auto coverage for this purpose is called personal injury protection, or PIP. Your PIP coverage has a limit of $3000. If your medical expenses are greater than $3000, which they often can be (especially if your accident resulted in an ambulance ride or emergency room visit), then the responsibility for remainder of the expense will fall to the insurance company of the person or entity that caused your injuries in the accident.
However, this is where people can run into difficulty. Many people think that they can take on all dealings with an insurance company on their own after their injury in Southern Utah. What some people fail to realize though, is that each insurance company has hundred of claims adjustors on the payroll. These people are expertly trained to protect the interest of the insurance company. They want to retain as much of the income made from premiums as they can—this is how they remain profitable. They make thousands and millions be paying out as little as possible in claims, and usually to people who really need to money and are deserving.
