At Day Shell & Liljenquist, L.C., we understand that the impact of a car wreck can range from relatively minor injuries to leaving you permanently disabled or with diminished earning capacity. Our compassionate personal injury lawyers provide:

  • Experience you can trust. We have helped personal injury victims throughout Utah since 1944. You can trust us to get you compensation as swiftly as possible so you can get back on your feet.
  • Protection from insurance company tactics. When you have been injured in an automobile accident, the insurance company is likely to make a quick, low-ball offer to try to get you to settle. We make sure the insurance company treats you fairly, and we are ready to take your case to trial if necessary.
  • Visit with us, or we can come to you. If you were injured in a crash, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to learn your legal options and preserve your rights. Don’t sign anything with an insurance adjuster before you know your rights. If you are still recovering at home or in the hospital, we will visit you there.

At Day Shell & Liljenquist, L.C., we provide personal injury representation on a contingency fee basis. This means that clients pay no retainer or attorney’s fee until we obtain compensation for your injuries, rehabilitation expenses, and lost work time. If you have been injured because of the negligence or carelessness of another, contact our Salt Lake area law firm to speak with a personal injury lawyer. Many firms charge 40% or more in contingency fees. We limit our fees to 33.3% (one-third) and work to keep costs and expenses down.
