Truck Accidents Attorneys Layton
Semi-truck accidents are frequently some of the most serious injury cases. Approximately 500,000 trucking accidents occur in the U.S. each year. Because they are so large and dangerous, Utah law requires that Semi-trucks maintain a minimum liability policy of $750,000. In addition, Semi-trucks are highly regulated by federal statutes and regulations related to the required maintenance of the semi-truck and trailer. An accident with a commercial truck can cause serious injuries, much more serious than those resulting from a normal car accident because of the weight and force involved and often results in much greater damage to your person and your vehicle. Obtaining a fair settlement can be difficult and complex. Oftentimes as soon as the accident occurs, trucking companies have their own investigators and attorneys on site. If too much time goes by after the accident, critical evidence can be “lost” by the trucking company. Trucking is big business in America, and the trucking companies along with their insurance companies have a lot of incentive to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. If you have been involved in a truck accident, it is important to obtain the right legal representation right away. LeBaron & Jensen has the experience and resources to fight and win on your behalf.
What Do I Do If I’m In a Truck Accident?
When you are involved in a truck accident, contact the police as soon as possible. Law enforcement will hopefully ensure that all parties are medically evaluated and will collect basic information about the accident. Gather the contact information of the other parties in the accident along with information from witnesses. The more information you can gather, the greater your chances for a fair and equitable settlement. It is important that you also get the medical help that you need immediately. Keep and provide your legal counsel with copies of all records, medical, law enforcement, or otherwise, associated with your accident.
Size and Weight Matters
Commercial trucks have a far greater size and weight ratio than standard, personal vehicles, which often leaves non-commercial vehicles devastated after a crash. Filing a lawsuit for a commercial truck accident is complex, so it’s important to have experienced legal counsel on your side from the beginning.
Physical evidence will play a large role in your ability to win your case. Skid marks, scuffs, and yaw marks need to be photographed as soon as possible, as these marks can fade within hours of the accident. In addition, looking at the semi-truck on site at the crash scene can be very helpful to determining whether there was a safety violation that may be covered up by moving the tractor and the trailer to a wrecking yard. We like to do our own investigation on site if possible. If this is not possible, we still like to inspect the truck and trailer as soon after the accident as possible to see what the physical evidence shows. The sooner you have a truck accident lawyer on your side, the better. Our team of experts at LeBaron & Jensen understands how important it is to act quickly and gather the evidence needed for your case.

When Miles LeBaron started LeBaron & Jensen with Tyler Jensen in 2004, they began with the objective of providing competent, result-oriented “big firm” legal representation, but with a small firm personal touch and less overhead to pass on to the client. Miles spent the first ten (10) years of his career representing various financial institutions and other companies in Utah with their litigation needs, including obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements from insurance companies who refused to compensate business owners who had their property damaged by fires or floods.
Tyler J. Jensen is one of the founding attorneys of LeBaron & Jensen, P.C. and represents clients in Utah and Colorado. Tyler has participated in more than 1000 hearings in his career and is in the court room multiple times each week. People know him for his deep commitment to his clients, promptness, approachability, and efficiency in getting results. Tyler has devoted his career to helping clients who are facing difficult financial circumstances as a result of injuries, health issues, financial issues, or other economic setbacks. Tyler is an experienced bankruptcy and personal injury attorney and has a passion for helping people turn their lives around.

Our clients are grateful for support and compensations we have helped them receive!
I highly recommend the firm of LeBaron & Jensen. Tyler and his staff answers my concerns promptly, gives absolutely top notch advice and does not charge an arm and a leg, but very fair fee for the services they provide. I feel as though Tyler gives you more than what you pay for and goes beyond whats expected. This is not just my opinion, but many other colleagues who actually referred me to him.
I can not say enough about this attorney office. Amazing team. I called multiple times with questions. Some times daily. Linda was always very patient with me and gave me all the information I was looking for each time. After our case was closed I had some additional questions and called and the team did not hesitate to jump in and help. The team genially cares about you and your family. Choose them and they will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
We were very pleased with how Miles Lebaron handled our car accident case. The insurance company was quite difficult to work with. Miles was persistent with the insurance company and got the settlement we were seeking, without having to go to court.
Miles also handled a case for our son, who was bit on the face by a dog. Again, Miles was persistent and was able to get a fair settlement, which included allowing our son to have the reconstructive surgery that he needed.
