Representing families in Salt Lake County and Northern Utah

Nothing is more devastating than losing a loved one.  But if someone else is responsible, you have the right to take legal action.  We realize that given your emotional state, filing a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind.  Utah’s compassionate wrongful death attorneys and staff at Summers Law are prepared to patiently guide you every step of the way, and provide you with the personal attention you deserve during this difficult time.  We have the skill and experience to assist your family in finding justice.  Most of all, we understand that filing a claim can help your family move forward.

In addition to emotional pain, a wrongful death can cause financial problems.  If successful, a wrongful death lawsuit can obtain reimbursement to pay for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost future wages and funeral costs.

What are the causes of wrongful death accidents in Utah?

Carelessness.  Recklessness.  Negligence.  These are the causes of wrongful death.  Throughout our personal injury careers we have learned that there is no single accident that leads to a wrongful death.

However, below are some of the more common causes of a wrongful death in Salt Lake City and surrounding Utah:
• Auto accidents: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 30,797 fatal car crashes in 2009. Truck and motorcycle accidents also result in many deaths each year.
• Slip and fall accidents: Slip and fall accidents can cause trauma to the spine, brain and neck that can lead to catastrophic injuries and even death.
• Dog bite injuries: Dog bite injuries may cause death if the victim is a young child.
• Construction accidents: Gravity-related accidents are capable of causing catastrophic injuries and death to workers and pedestrians on construction sites.

The pain a wrongful death causes can be unbearable.  At Summers Law, we can help you obtain compensation to help your family find justice.  Our practice is focused in Salt Lake County and northern Utah, but we stand ready to represent family members due to a wrongful death throughout Utah.  Call us at (801)-264-8374 or contact us online to schedule an initial consultation.
