Unfortunately, on a daily basis innocent people are injured by the negligent and careless actions of others. If such an injury has occurred to you, you may have already incurred medical expenses, lost time and wages from work, and experienced physical and mental pain and suffering and or an actual change in your quality of life. Fortunately, the legal system allows parties that have been injured by the negligence of others to be made whole. At Bearnson & Caldwell, our attorneys are available to assist injured individuals in Utah, Idaho, Arizona, and Wyoming, and have over 50 years of experience assisting clients in obtaining the maximum recovery allowed under the law.

Bearnson & Caldwell takes personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not pay any fees or expenses unless recovery is obtained in your case.

An important aspect to nearly every personal injury case is negotiating with the insurance companies – both the insurance belonging to the person or business who caused the injury, and the insurance belonging to you as the injured person.  The attorneys at Bearnson & Caldwell will fight the insurance companies on your behalf so that you can concentrate on the most important matters, like regaining your health and getting your life back to normal.

It is important to note that as with other areas of the law, there is a limited window of time during which personal injury claims may be pursued. If too much time has passed since you were injured, and no action has been taken, you may be banned from obtaining any recovery.  So if you have incurred personal injury due to the negligence of a business or other person, we encourage you to act now.
