Car Crash in West Jordan

I recently represented a client who was hurt in a car crash in West Jordan, Utah. My client was stopped waiting at a red light when he was violently struck from behind by another vehicle. The accident happened near Jordan Landing in West Jordan. The other driver claimed not to be at-fault for the crash, despite hitting my client from behind there in West Jordan. The client then retained my services.

One of the big issues for my client was the fact that he worked a job that required a lot of physical labor. Due to his injuries from the car crash in West Jordan, he was not able to work. However, my client was self-employed and providing documentation about his wages was difficult. I worked with the client to provide alternative forms of evidence to prove his wages. While he continued to receive medical treatment, he received lost wages from his own insurance under the PIP coverage for this crash in West Jordan. Oftentimes I would have my client submit a calendar of the hours he missed from work, which he prepared himself.

After  my client was done treating, we submitted a demand package to the insurance company of the person who caused the crash in West Jordan, Utah. At first, the insurance company refused to pay their insurance policy limit for this crash, however, we were eventually able to demonstrate that my clients injuries were severe and he was justified in receiving the policy limit for his injuries and ongoing injury. We then pursued an underinsured motorist claim with his own insurance company for this crash in West Jordan, Utah, which we were able to successfully resolve.
