It’s a situation we’ve seen countless times: you’ve been hurt in an auto accident in Utah or perhaps another state and, unfortunately, the accident was caused by another party’s negligence. Soon, it dawns on you that you will need to hire a lawyer to ensure that you’re fairly compensated for your troubles.
After having located Ascent Law, a personal injury law firm, you’ve call the office and arranged for your free consultation. Before speaking with an auto accident attorney, you’ll want to be prepared to get the most out of your free consultation. Based on prior experience, here are a couple of ideas for making certain that a positive interaction occurs.
Before you meet with your lawyer to discuss your legal issue, make a lists of questions you have. This will help the meeting run more efficiently. The next step may seem obvious but it’s important: listen to your lawyer. They know how to best handle your case and they know what it takes to help you obtain the reparations you rightfully deserve.
Additionally, when conversing with your lawyer here in Salt Lake City or St. George, Utah or elsewhere, make sure you are completely honest. There’s simply no sense in withholding information about an accident or fabricating the details of the injuries derived therefrom. Your lawyer is there to help you and they can’t provide sound legal counsel if you aren’t entirely transparent as to an event’s specifics.
Furthermore, there are a couple of documents you will want to consider bringing. They include, but are not limited to, police reports, medical bills and insurance information. When handled properly, a free consultation can be a mutually beneficial meeting for all involved.
Any motorcyclist from West Jordan, Utah would tell you that there is nothing better than riding down a winding canyon road in the spring, summer or fall. On the other hand, your lawyer would tell you that there isn’t anything more devastating than a motorcycle accident.
The truth is, if you’re careful and follow all the safety rules, you can minimize the damage done in an accident. Though, if you drive a car instead, statistically, you’d be safer.
Getting into an auto accident isn’t pretty either, but there are more safety feature to protect you in a car: airbags, seat belts and shatter-resistant glass to name a few. The bottom line is, when you drive a car, there is more standing between you and death than there is when you ride a motorcycle. All a motorcyclist has is a helmet and leather.
Cars are also much easier to control. While motorcycles are smaller and much more maneuverable, they can lose control easily—especially at high speeds. In any case, you should drive and ride as safely as you can. If you get into an accident in either a car or on a motorcycle, make sure you call your lawyer.
While motorcycles may be less safe in comparison to cars, they can also be a lot less expensive than a car too. The average price of a car is $30,000. A decent motorcycle on the other hand, costs between $3,000 and $6,000. Many people justify risking a motorcycle accident because of this huge price difference, but your lawyer would tell you that this small price difference isn’t worth your life or getting injured.
After all, if you do decide to purchase a motorcycle, make sure you take all the appropriate training, and make sure you wear the proper safety gear. Be extremely careful when riding in inclement weather and make sure to stay vigilant on the roads.
