Utah Personal Injury Law
We handle complex cases that involve personal injury to individuals. The cases may seem easy to resolve but each case is unique as it relates to the facts of each incident and as it relates to possible claims and defenses may raise on the other side.

Our attorney is here to help guide you through your personal injury claim and ensure you obtain the proper remedy for your injury.
Standard of Care
Typically, an individual must prove that the injury they incurred was as a result of someone’s negligence. Meaning, that someone deviated from the typical standard of care set as it relates to a reasonable person in the same circumstance. Sometimes proof requires an expert witness or other evidence to show that an individual deviated from such care.
This standard changes as it relates to professionals such as with medical malpractice cases, or legal malpractice cases. However, in the State of Utah, when it comes to injury as to a defective product, one only needs prove that the productive was defective and the product injured that person to prove liability. The standard relates to whether or not a consumer would be able to appreciate the risks dangers and propensities of the product as to its defectiveness or if the defect went beyond such contemplation of risk.
All manufacturers and distributors involved can be liable for the injury caused to the individual. The purpose of the Utah law is to protect all individuals against harmful products. The law protects all individuals against protects whereas many other product liability laws in other states only protect individuals that actually purchase the product and are in privity in contract with the product.
