Case Results


A mother and her two sons where driving back to Utah from California on the freeway after a tennis tournament. The fog started to roll in during the early evening and became so thick that you could not see very far in front of you. She noticed hazard lights in her lane and slowed to almost 25 mpg. A tractor trailer had previously lost control; and collided with another car and was stopped in her lane. She was slowly coming to a stop when another trucker, going too fast, rear ended her and crashed her vehicle under the truck in her lane. Her sons were able to climb out of the windows of the car, but the rescuers needed the ‘jaws of life” to remove her from the vehicle.

Several young men were traveling together for a business training course when they came to a train tracks just as the “Warning Arm” was coming down. Our client, who was a passenger in the back stated that one of the other passengers told the driver, “go around the warning arm, otherwise we are going to be sitting here all day long”. They almost made it through the intersection when the train collided with the back of the vehicle killing the driver and severely injuring the passengers. The driver’s policy was not sufficient to cover all the passenger’s claims. It is at that point they we made a claim with each passengers own automobile policy under their Underinsured Motorist Coverage.

It was determined that the employee did not follow store protocol when removing and replacing heavy items within the store premises in close proximity to store customers.

A pedestrian was crossing at an intersection and was halfway across when the light turned red. A vehicle coming in the opposite direction was not paying attention and struck our client causing him to fly up in the air and landed on the hood of the car. The client sustained a broken arm and traumatic brain injury when his head crashed into the windshield on impact.

Elderly woman was exiting her doctor’s office and tripped and fell on a door stop that had been placed in the middle of the floor. The door stop was placed there to keep the door from hitting some furniture. She sustained head and neck trauma and lost some teeth as she hit her face forward during the fall. It was determined that other clients had complained about tripping on that same door stop before and had advised the doctor and employees on numerous occasions.

More Frequently Asked Questions ›


Most injury claims can be settled for their full value through negotiation, mediation or arbitration, without having to go to court. Our firm settles almost 98% of our accident cases outside of court. However, if the Insurance Company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement to compensate you for all of your present and future loss, this may require that you participate in legal proceedings.
You should contact an accident attorney as soon as possible after being injured so that your rights and evidence are protected. Do not give the insurance company a recorded statement as this can be used against you at a later time. You may give them your version of the accident as long as it is not recorded. Our Salt Lake City accident attorneys will begin to work for you immediately and make sure you get the medical attention you need even if you don’t have your own medical insurance.
Almost every Utah car insurance policy has at least $3,000 available for medical bills, no matter who was at fault for the accident. However, most of our client’s medical expenses exceed that $3,000 threshold. You may submit your remaining bills to your Health Insurance, however, if you do not have health insurance, we at William Rawlings & Associates will contact all of your medical providers and obtain a lien on your behalf for any and all treatment you may need from Physical therapy to surgery. This lien simply states that the medical provider agrees to hold on to their bill and continue to treat you until you are released and agree to wait for payment until your case is settled.
