Who will pay for my bills after my accident?
As Utah is a no-fault insurance state, you can file a claim with your own insurance carrier to receive PIP (personal injury protection) benefits following your accident. These will cover the first $3,000 of your medical care.
Should your injuries require greater than $3,000 in care, you can hire an attorney to help you handle the claim in order to receive the care you need without any out-of-pocket costs.
As our office treats a large number of auto accident cases each year, we can help guide you through the process of talking with your insurance company and, if necessary, finding an attorney to process your claim.
