Q:When Do I Need a Lawyer?
A:Insurance adjusters often reach out one or two days after an accident, so we suggest you retain an attorney as soon as you can. However, you can bring a law firm into the claims process at any time if you start out on your own.
Q:What If I Can’t Afford a Lawyer?
A:Dodd & Kuendig works entirely on a contingency basis, meaning you will not have to pay us any fees until we win for you. We know accidents and injuries bring enough financial stress—and we don’t want to add more.
Q:Will My Case Go to Trial?
A:A very small fraction of personal injury cases go to trial. Most insurers will agree to settle rather than go through the hassle of a lawsuit. However, should we need to litigate for your recovery, we are prepared to do so.
Q:What’s the Statute of Limitations in Utah?
A:Most personal injury suits are generally needed to be filled within 4 years of the accident. However, do not wait too long to get help—some case types, such as medical malpractice and wrongful death, have shorter statutes of limitations.
Q:What Is Comparative Negligence, and Why Does it Matter?
A:If the accident victim is found to have partial fault, their compensation can be reduced by the percentage of liability they hold. Because our state evaluates comparative negligence in all personal injury cases, it’s important to have an attorney to fight against untrue accusations.
