Your Utah Attorney in St George
Over 35 years of SUCCESS
Using a proven system, developed in our office for over 35 years, using checklists and creative problem solving, we work toward identifying all of your injuries, so they can be diagnosed and treated. We package all your information into a 'settlement brochure' and work toward a settlement of your case. Our goal is to see that your settlement is maximal based on knowledge of local settlement values. We are only compensated by a pre-agreed upon percentage of the settlement.
Rex Bush was inspired to practice personal injury law following the loss of his father in a vehicle crash. It was a personal injury attorney who assisted his mother to bring a claim against the at fault party. The settlement from that case was valuable to Mr. Bush’s mother in taking care of her six children.
After handling his first injury case in 1984, shortly thereafter, he dedicated his practice to helping victims injured due to the carelessness of others.
Mr Bush and his wife, Jan, have worked together in the law firm for over 34 years and enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren whenever possible.

How To Quickly and Easily Find Out If You Have a Personal Injury Case
Each firm has its own screening criteria for cases involving personal injury
Here are ours:
Was someone injured?
Was this injury caused by the negligence of another?
Was the property damage (vehicle crash cases) sufficient that a jury would believe the injuries were caused by the crash?
Was Someone Injured?
In some cases, injury isn’t enough. In Utah, if you get hurt in a car crash, you must exceed a “threshold” to get a settlement for pain and suffering. The threshold for personal injury in Utah may be exceeded by meeting just one of the following requirements:
medical bills in excess of a certain amount;
More about each of these criteria is provided in the following paragraphs.
Medical Bills In Excess of a Certain Amount
Some states allow a claim for non-economic damages once the injured person has incurred medical bills over a certain amount. For example, in Utah, $3,000 is the magic number. The bills must have been necessary and caused by the crash as well as reasonable in price.
Permanent Impairment from Personal Injury
Threshold can also be met by showing a permanent “impairment” from your personal injury.
Permanent Disability: A useful definition of disability is "an alteration of an individual's capacity to meet personal, social, or occupational demands because of an impairment." An individual can be impaired significantly and have no disability, while another person can be quite disabled with only limited impairment.
A concert pianist might have a relatively minor injury to a digital nerve that severely limits his/her ability to perform basic work activities (playing difficult piano concertos).
Disfigurement and Personal Injury
Utah allows a claim for non-economic damages if the injured person has sustained disfigurement. Sometimes “significant disfigurement” is required. Disfigurement usually means a “scar.”
Threshold in car crash cases can also be met by the death of the injured person. The death would have to be caused by the crash.
Threshold Only Applies To Non-Economic Injuries
You can make a claim for medical expenses or lost income and you don’t have to meet the threshold requirement on your claim for personal injury if you are seeking only economic damages.
Was this injury caused by negligence of another?
If the other driver ran a red light or stop sign or rear ended you, he was probably negligent.
Now, let’s say you were only partly at fault, maybe 20%, and another driver had the remaining 80% of the fault. May you recover? Yes, but your personal injury settlement would be reduced by the 20% of your fault.
Was the Property Damage Sufficient That a Jury Would Believe the Injuries Were Caused by the Crash?
Juries have shown an unwillingness to award money for personal injury if the car doesn’t show much damage. If a vehicle has no visible damage or a repair bill of less than $2,000 it is hard to get a fair recovery on an injury case.

In working with Rex both in his office and out, I learned that Rex greatly values client relationships and places emphasis on client satisfaction. He prides himself on constantly learning and improving the skills necessary to be on the leading edge of his trade. I have personally relied on his expertise in personal injury on numerous occasions.

"Rex Bush is one positive, together guy. He’s got the voice of confidence."
Ken Selander, Seattle Attorney
"A client of mine* was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident while visiting in Utah. Although I am an attorney, I am not licensed to practice law in the State of Utah. As such, I needed to find a Utah attorney experienced in personal injury cases that could assist me in this matter. I was referred to Rex Bush who agreed to be my co-counsel in this case. Mr. Bush quickly became an indispensable part of the team and was instrumental in effectuating a very large* out-of-court settlement. Without Mr. Bush’s wise legal counsel and vast knowledge of Utah personal injury law I do not believe that my client’s results would have been so favorable. Should I need a Utah personal injury attorney again, Mr. Bush will be the attorney I call.
