Do you have a case?
How to Determine
IF YOU SHOULD PURSUE LEGAL ACTION
Did negligence occur?
When another party acts negligently, their actions can have serious consequences. If you suspect that negligence, recklessness, or malpractice led to your injury, you may have a case.
Can your injury be linked to a particular event?
In order to pursue a lawsuit, you must be able to prove that your injury is directly connected to an event caused by the party you are suing.
Are there any measurable damages?
In order to recover compensation, you will need to demonstrate measurable damages related to your injury such as medical bills or pain and suffering.
Still Unsure If You Have a Case?
Our team can assess the details of your injury and determine if you have a case during your complimentary consultation. We understand that many types of serious injuries can be debilitating, so we can visit you at your home or hospital.

We Do the Heavy Lifting for You
A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER CAN:
Level the Playing Field
Insurance companies deal with claims like yours every day. Their goal is to save their company money by limiting the amount you receive. Our firm handles injury cases every day too and can help ensure you receive what you deserve.
Investigate Your Case
Injury cases are complex and may involve much more than what is on the surface. Our team can hire experts in accident reconstruction and other fields to investigate the scene and get to the bottom of what really happened.
File Documents for You
Every court case follows a specific structure and properly filing your paperwork is often a large part of how successful your case is. We can keep an eye on timing and procedure to ensure your documents are filed on time and in the correct place.
Advise on Courses of Action
We recognize how overwhelming a legal case can be, especially when it involves a serious injury. At our firm, we help our clients with all aspects of their case. We can give you advice on dealing with medical expenses and other aspects of your injury.
Increase Your Compensation
Our goal with every single case we take on is to maximize the outcome for our clients. We recognize the difference an injury settlement can make on the quality of your life, so we work hard to ensure you receive the compensation you need.

The Type of Injury You Have
WILL AFFECT YOUR ENTIRE CASE
In general, the type of injury you suffer will determine how our attorneys work on your case.
If you suffered a mild injury that you will eventually recover from, such as a broken bone or fracture, we may recommend that you pursue a fair and favorable insurance settlement.
However, if you suffer a catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury, our attorneys may recommend that you file a lawsuit. Although this process is typically much longer, it allows us to pursue a settlement or jury award that accounts for every possible loss.
We also deal with liability and third-party work injury cases…

Why the Cause of Your Injury
IS IMPORTANT TO US
The cause of your injury is very important because it typically points to the party who is at fault and responsible for paying damages. Determining the cause of your injury can help our team build a strong case and collect a full, fair settlement.
The cause of your injury will also dictate how we approach your case.
If your injury was caused by medical malpractice, we may decide to pursue legal action against the doctor, the hospital, or both
If your injury stemmed from an assault or violent crime, we may pursue criminal charges
Because the cause of your accident is not always immediately apparent, we work with strong resources including accident reconstructionists to help strengthen your case.
We Handle the Legal Side
SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON HEALING
If you or a loved one was injured, your focus should be on recovery and healing, not on handling paperwork and insurance claims. Our team can take care of the legal aspects, so you can spend your time on what is really important.
We Understand the Lasting Effects
OF A SERIOUS INJURY
Our team at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton have spent over 25 years representing injured individuals.
We have seen the physical, emotional, and financial toll a serious injury takes on victims and their families.
AFTER AN INJURY, COSTS ADD UP FAST…
Often, a serious injury means time off work. Depending on the severity of your injury, this time off can place significant financial strain on you and your family.
After an injury, medical bills can build up quickly. If you need to see a specialist or have on-going health concerns, these expenses can be debilitating.
Decreased Earning Potential
Certain types of injuries can significantly affect your ability to earn a living. A decreased earning potential can completely change your overall quality of life.
Many victims of a catastrophic injury require long-term care which may last for the rest of their lives, placing a massive financial strain on their family.
Altered Quality of Life
A serious injury can turn your world upside down and affect every aspect of your life, including your emotional, psychological, and physical wellbeing.
Many clients ask: Is a lawsuit really worth it?

Collecting Damages Can Improve
YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE
Unfortunately, insurance payments are not always enough to cover the expenses of the injury.
If someone else was at fault for your injury, you can pursue damages against those responsible. The damages available to you depend on the type of injury you received, as well as the circumstances of the injury.
Common damages awarded in personal injury cases include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of companionship or consortium
In some cases, the court may also award punitive damages if the individual at fault acted in a particularly wrongful manner. This type of compensation is meant to serve as a punishment, but is not as common as other forms of damages.
For many of our clients, collecting compensation provides relief from financial and emotional burdens, dramatically improving their overall quality of life.
Be Aware of Time Limits
for Filing a Case
Utah has several statutes of limitations in place for different types of injuries. These statutes place a limit on the amount of time you have to file a claim. For personal injury, the statute of limitations is four years after the initial date of the injury.
You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your injury occurs. Failure to do so can affect the outcome or validity of your case.
“I’m Trying to Help My Client Get the Recovery That They Deserve…”
“The benefit of hiring us is you’re able to take all of those problems and issues and let us take care of that while you focus on your medical recovery…”
If you or a loved one was seriously injured, we can help ensure you receive proper compensation which covers the full extent of your injury.
