Dealing with Car Insurance Companies

Most people pay high premiums for insurance like automobile, medical, health, and homeowners insurance. In Utah, drivers are required to be insured. That means when somebody is injured in a car accident, there should be insurance available to cover the cost of the injury. Unfortunately, many insurance companies are difficult or unwilling to pay any money when an accident occurs.

What are your hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What kinds of cases are personal injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I be charged to consult or talk with you?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What does contingency mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can you give me an assessment of my case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

Can I sign up with more than one law firm?

Generally, no. However, in has happened in specific situations. Consult with us to strategize the best method to gain an optimum settlement.

Why should I sign with Strong Law?

  • We used to represent the insurance companies; which gives us a unique grasp in knowing how they work as we represent you. Said another way, we know their tricks and will position to give you the best outcome.
  • We are winning trial lawyers. That means, we’re not afraid to take your case as far as necessary to give you the best outcome.
  • We have settled multiple cases at more than a million dollars. That is not guaranteed, but many firms can demand those numbers, but it takes strategy, experience, and steadiness to achieve the results, and we are all of these.
What should I do if I’m having problems, like their insurance company is calling me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What are common reasons for insurance injury denials?
  • Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.
  • Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.
  • If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.
How long does a case take to settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why can cases last years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
