Motorcycle Accidents Can Have Catastrophic Consequences
IThe lack of safety features and comparatively smaller size of motorcycles leaves motorcyclists vulnerable to devastating injuries that can change the course of your life.
If you or a loved one was in a motorcycle accident, our team can help…
Motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable types of drivers on the road.
Despite being a minority on the road, motorcyclists are affected by a disproportionate number of accidents.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we understand how devastating a motorcycle accident can be. Our attorneys have been representing Utah citizens who have been injured in motorcycle accidents for over 25 years.
We can work with your insurance company or file a lawsuit to help you collect the compensation you need to recover and rebuild.
Six Easy Steps to Take
after a Motorcycle Accident
After a Motorcycle Accident:
Stay on the Scene
While it can be difficult to think clearly after an accident, make sure to stay on the scene until you speak to others involved. If possible, you should move all vehicles safely out of traffic.
Seek medical attention for anyone who was injured in the accident. It is a good idea to call the police and ask them to file a incident report in case you need it later.
Get the names, insurance information, and contact information for anyone who was involved directly in the accident, as well as those who witnessed the event.
If you can safely do so, take pictures of the accident scene and the damage done. These photos can serve as evidence later for your insurance company or during a lawsuit.
Avoid Admitting Fault
It is difficult to know who is to blame for an accident immediately after it happens. Even a simple apology could be used against you once the dust settles.
Contact an Attorney
It is a good idea to contact a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Our attorneys can negotiate with your insurance company to ensure you receive a fair settlement.

Common Auto Accidents
Due to the high number of cars on the road, these types of accidents happen frequently. The aftermath of a car accident is often expensive. Our attorneys can help you pursue damages from either a negligent or drunk driver, or your insurance company
The massive size and weight of trucks means there is a much greater risk of life-changing or fatal injuries. Our attorneys can help you navigate the complex causes and liability issues associated with truck accidents to ensure you receive what you deserve.
An accident on a motorcycle can result in catastrophic, life-altering injuries for motorcyclists. Since PIP is not available for recreational vehicles, legal claims are often the only source of compensation for motorcyclists injured in an accident
What Type of Vehicles
Accidents involving different types of vehicles are handled differently. For example, an accident involving a UTA bus may be much more complex than a single car accident.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we can help with any type of motor vehicle accident, including:

What Was The Cause Your Accident?
Determining the cause of your accident can help build a strong case for compensation. For example, if your accident was caused by a defective part on your vehicle or another similar issue, you may have a case against the manufacturer or another entity.
Some causes of auto accidents we see regularly include:
RESPONSIVE AND PROFESSIONAL
“Brett Boulton handled my son’s auto accident claim. The insurance company played hardball and we had to file a lawsuit before the case settled, but Brett and his staff were responsive and professional throughout. We were very happy with Brett’s handling of the claim and with the end result.”
Who Was Driving?
Passengers in a vehicle often sustain serious injuries in an auto accident. However, figuring out how to receive proper coverage can be difficult as the passenger.
In many cases, the driver is a family member or friend. You may hesitate to file a claim because you do not want to offend or cause trouble.
If you were injured as the passenger of a vehicle, you do not have to sue the driver, though you may have the right. You can file a claim under their insurance or the insurance of another driver involved in the accident.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we are dedicated to helping injured individuals receive the compensation they deserve. We can help you understand your rightsand determine the right course of action for your unique situation.
