    I recommend contacting a local medical malpractice lawyer right away. With medical claims in Utah there is typically a 2 year statute of limitation. It may be too late to bring a claim but it would be worth contacting a local medical malpractice lawyer right away.

  • How can I get my medical bills sent to me, so i can have the responsible party to pay for them. The accident was in 03/19/2012.

    How can I get the help I need? I need my bills from 03/19/2012 till now, if that is possible so I can get everything taking care of, or should I say make a settlement agreement with their Insurance Company.

    Michael’s Answer

    Contact your medical providers directly and request bills and records. Most large facilities will have a separate office to request bills and records. Good luck.

    Michael’s Answer

    Probably not but you should retain a criminal attorney if and when charged. Were you at fault for the accident? If not, you should still consider hiring a good personal injury lawyer. Good luck!

  • I have gotten no where with the demand letter. I still do not know what bills were paid, which were not etc.

    I am told by the attorney and her assistant that they do not know how to obtain the necessary information because State Farm Insurance does not release it to them. I don't believe this , but I don't know what to do about it.

    Michael’s Answer

    You need an attorney who only does injury work. Your insurance company shouldn't rely on the insurance company for information. In my office and in the offices of nearly every injury attorney in this forum, we collect the records on our own and we have the responsibility to make sure it is accurate. Seek clarity from your lawyer.

    Contact a local personal injury attorney right away. I wouldn't give a statement to the insurance company without retaining an attorney first. You have a great claim and you should see representation. Good luck!
