Plaintiff Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Group

The attorneys in Jones Waldo’s Plaintiff Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Group have many years of combined legal experience representing those injured by the negligence of individuals, corporations and the medical profession.  Their expertise is backed by the extensive resources of one of Utah’s oldest, largest and most respected law firms.  This combination of expertise and resources equals success.

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

This practice group represents clients injured by negligent motor vehicle drivers.  They assist injured clients in maximizing a just and equitable settlement with insurance companies of negligent drivers, as well with clients’ own insurance companies for uninsured and underinsured claims which arise when a negligent party does not have any insurance or adequate insurance or other resources to compensate them.  The group also represents individuals injured by the neglect of property owners who allow dangerous conditions to persist on their property, and those injured by defective products sold by corporations.  If you or a family member have been injured, or if a family member has been killed by the negligence of someone else, please contact an attorney from the group for a free consultation concerning your case.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a serious problem in the United States and in Utah, causing more deaths than diseases such as breast cancer or AIDS.  Even more often than death, medical malpractice results in injuries that severely impact patients and their families for the rest of their lives.

As a matter of fairness, Utah has specific laws designed to help those whose lives have been affected by medical malpractice, allowing for compensation to reduce the resulting burdens.  Jones Waldo has created a specialized medical malpractice team to assist individuals and families in pursuing their legal rights to fair compensation and to help them move forward with their lives following a medical injury.

The team consists of individuals with backgrounds in law and medicine.  This expert team includes the attorneys, nurse practitioners, medical record experts, and independent expert consultants who work together to obtain fair compensation for injured patients.  For more information and resources to assist injured patients and their families contact one of the group’s attorneys by clicking on their biography link to the right.
