I-80 is notorious for auto accidents. As with any heavily trafficked interstate, the chances of you becoming involved in an auto accident increase the more cars there are on the road. Add to that extreme weather conditions like snow and rain, and you can be left with wet roads that can cause auto and truck accidents and even multiple car accidents.
Of course, the primary concern in any auto accident is the safety of all involved. Hopefully, there won’t be any fatalities, but even when people do survive auto crashes, they are oftentimes injured. When that’s the case, who is held responsible for the injuries? That is a question best determined by a Utah car accident attorney like the ones at Howard Lewis & Petersen.

When people are injured in auto accidents, the first thing they should do after seeking medical attention is to contact Provo personal injury attorneys. Attorneys can help you determine just who was at fault for the accident. An attorney will examine all the circumstances surrounding your case to determine whether the other party was negligent.
Even if you think that you might have been partly to blame for the accident, you still might be entitled to compensation for your injuries. In cases where each party is deemed partially responsible, each party could be ordered to pay for their part of the damages, so you could be able to receive partial compensation.
A Utah accident attorney will try to obtain you compensation for any medical expenses you incurred as a result of the accident, any wages you lost since you couldn’t go to work following the accident, any future wages you lost if you became disabled in the accident and so on. Your attorney might also seek reparation for punitive and emotional damages too, and you can be assured your attorney will be working hard to secure you the most favorable claim since most personal injury attorneys don’t get paid until you do.
