We will go all the way to make sure the compensation you receive covers all your medical expenses, your and your family's pain and suffering and the wages you lost due to recovery. We have a proven track record in personal injury cases of all kinds.

We will also ensure that the parties responsible for your injuries are brought to book for their negligence or misconduct and appropriate penal action is taken against them. Call us at 801-621-3317 for a FREE consultation.

Our Law Office

Our office is located in the historic Smyth Mansion. That's a great privilege for sure! This mansion was restored recently by our attorney Eric M. Ward and his wife, Linda. This Victorian structure is decorated with the most unique and rare designs.

The Smyth House has hosted many noted figures like President William Howard Taft, Eamon de Valera (President of Ireland) and Chauncey Olcott, the famous stage actor and singer among others. After changing many hands, it's now home to our law firm.

Schedule Your Free Consultation

We offer FREE consultations for all our services. After a thorough review of the case, we decide how to proceed with it. If you want to file a lawsuit against the negligence, we will take care of all the legalities associated with it.

Our aim is to let you completely focus on your recovery without having to worry about the complex legal situation. We take payments only if we're able to successfully settle or try your case.
Medical expenses

Deferred Billing and Expenses During Your Recovery

Auto insurance policies in Utah include the benefits of personal injury protection (PIP). With this, you will be paid immediately a fixed amount for your medical expenses. There's no need to settle claims for these benefits.

However, there may arise occasions where we need the healthcare company to accept a deferred billing on a "lien basis." You can discuss this with our professional attorneys and choose the appropriate course of action.

It's unfortunate that once you exhaust your PIP benefits, you have to pay your medical expenses yourself. Our attorneys always make sure that you get paid at the end for all these out-of-pocket expenses.

But this can be a burden on your financial condition. We can help you out by making some healthcare facilities agree to accept your case on a "lien basis." A lien allows you to receive medical treatment in times when you can't afford it.

If you already have health insurance, you can go ahead with your treatment, but that may require you to only visit physicians who are members of your specific Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). We ensure that your bills are handled properly.
