[MUSIC PLAYING] I’m Amy Schauers. And I’ve enjoyed working with Parker & McConkie for the past eight years. I’ve always been interested in the law from young on. I’ve always thought it would be interesting to learn about the law and help people that don’t understand it, make it simpler for them and help them to understand.
Well, Amy is special, because she loves baby cases. And she’s had experiences in her life that have caused her to have very tender feelings about these little newborns. And when a baby case comes into our office, a baby that’s been hurt during childbirth due to the mistakes of the doctor, when those cases come in, Amy relates. She knows how the mother feels.
She, over the years, has learned the medicine. She knows what the mistakes are and what to look for and how to put together a case. And she’s interesting because, after the case is finished and we have the result, she stays in touch with these clients as friends. And every once in a while, she’ll come in and say, hey, guess what? I talked to so and so today, and this is how their child’s doing.
I think when I knew I found my niche in the law and my calling was we had a case shortly after I started with Parker & McConkie. And it was for a little boy who was born with a brain injury. And I worked that case from start to finish and really, truly felt like I was helping this little boy get the things that he needed so he could have a better life and help his mom. And it really touched me and made me want to help these injured children.
The reason I like coming to work is to help people, to help, especially, injured children that were injured at birth that have brain injuries. And I like to make a difference in their lives. And so that motivates me every day I come to work. I want to help them. And I want to move their cases along so that they can get the help they need.
My name’s Hailey Francis. I’ve been a paralegal for about three and a half years.
Hailey has a lot of enthusiasm for the job. And she always goes the extra mile. And she works hard. She loves to talk to clients. She likes to know about the case and the facts of the case. And so, when you’re working with Hailey, you get somebody that’s really interested in you and someone that’s going to make sure that the case is done well.
Yes, I like being a paralegal. I like being able to help people in a way that they couldn’t help themselves, with something that we offer, services that really can change someone’s life.
Parker & McConkie is a smaller set of attorneys. It’s a smaller staff. But we all work on all the cases.
We have an attorney and paralegal that work on the cases. But we’re all brainstorming about the cases. We all are involved.
And the experience that Brad and Jim and Alex have makes all the difference. They know what they’re doing. They know how to best help each individual case. And they’re willing to put forth the time to get it finished.
My name’s Karlie. And I’ve been here since 2011. And I work directly with the clients. I talk with them on the phone and get down their general information and then do a lot of just busy work around the office.
Karlie’s just great. She takes all of the new calls. She’s good at talking to people. She gets detail.
She is interested to see if we can help people. We always can. But if we can’t, Karlie will figure out a way to do it. And she works on cases and does it enthusiastically.
I think that the most fun part of my job is that I get to listen to the clients when they first are talking about their case. So I get to hear about the whole entire case before anyone else gets to hear about it. So sometimes, that’s all a person needs is they just need someone to listen to them and to validate them, make them realize that there was something that was wrong. And so I like that I get to listen to let them and let them know that it’s going to be OK, and we’re going to see what we can do to help them out.
[MUSIC PLAYING] Utah’s Medical Malpractice & Injury Attorneys
Personal injuries (whether caused by a doctor, an auto accident, or some other unfortunate event) can have a profound and lasting impact. Injuries can lead to lost jobs, lost income, lost independence, mounting medical bills, strain on family members, and even death.
The last thing you want on your plate during a time like this is an insurance company that refuses to do the right thing.
Too often the insurance company that should be stepping in to help will instead:
Refuse to meet its obligations and try to pay nothing for serious injury cases
Offer a quick, low-ball settlement for a fraction of what it should pay
Ask you to sign documents that are in its best interest
—not in your best interest
