Obtaining Compensation for Personal Injury Victims
If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of someone else, you are entitled to seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, you will be dealing with insurance companies and others unwilling to admit fault. In these cases, it helps to work with an experienced attorney who will fight to help you obtain the compensation you need to recover.
At Burton Law Firm of Ogden, we will try to resolve your personal injury case through negotiations with the insurance company of the negligent party. However, we are willing and able to try your case in court if that is what it takes to obtain the compensation you deserve.

- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents in stores and public areas
- Dog bite injuries
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice such as surgical errors
Protecting Your Rights
To protect your rights to compensation in a personal injury case, you should not say anything to the insurance company of the responsible party. Anything you say could be used to damage your case and prevent you from making any recovery. If an insurance adjuster asks you to make a recorded statement or to sign anything, politely refuse and refer him or her to your lawyer.
Do not assume that you are fine after a car accident. Seek medical advice and follow your doctor’s recommendations for your recovery. Write down everything you can remember from the accident and keep a journal about how the accident has affected you, your family, your job, etc.
