A catastrophic injury can mean lost wages, crushing medical expenses, and decreased earning potential.
Find out how our Utah personal injury lawyers can help you begin rebuilding your life...
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we understand how devastating a serious injury can be and that collecting compensation can have a dramatic impact on your overall quality of life.
If you were injured due to the actions or negligence of a person or organization, you have the right to pursue a personal injury case.
We handle a wide range of cases at our practice and serve clients throughout Utah. However you were injured, our team has the resources and qualifications to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
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.
If you or a loved one were seriously injured, we can tailor a legal solution to fit your needs and build a strong case for compensation.
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.
"In the U.S., preventable injuries are at an all-time high, ranking as the third leading cause of death behind heart disease, cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease."
The National Safety Council
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.
Because the cause of your accident is not always immediately apparent, we work with strong resources including accident reconstructionists to help strengthen your case.
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.
"Mark Flickinger and his staff were my daughter's biggest cheerleaders during her recovery after being severely injured as a passenger in a single car accident in Provo...

"I highly recommend Mark Flickenger and his staff - they will be your biggest support and become family." Corin M.
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.
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.
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 lost part of my leg in an industrial accident and was referred to Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton by my work compensation attorney. He made a products liability claim against several manufacturers of the product that injured me. I ultimately received approximately $750,000 in settlement and continued medical benefits for life for my injuries." Chris from Spanish Fork, UT
