I represent those injured in accidents of all kinds throughout Utah. When you call me or make an appointment, you talk to me.  

I am based in Salt Lake City and will personally meet with you in my office, in your home, or in the hospital– call me and we’ll work it out. When we meet, I will apply my experience of over 20 years and provide you with an honest evaluation of your case. Your meeting with me is without risk or obligation and I will only get paid when you recover. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

What We Do

Personalized Attention to Your Catastrophic Injury or Loss

We focus our attention on a small number of cases so that we can provide the specialized and personal attention your case requires. This means that I will personally review your case without charge. We care about you. Let us meet with you and talk about how we can help you deal with your loss or injury. We have many years of experience with injuries or death caused by car accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, defective drugs, wrongful death, and other types of personal injury. Injuries and death occur in many ways and due to many causes including:

Medical Injuries – These include injuries occurring before, during, or after any medical care, surgery, diagnostic tests, physical therapy, in-patient care, out-patient care or surgery, mental health care, or other care related to your health. Such injuries or death could be related to any of the following:
Anesthesia Errors
Birth Injuries
Dangerous Drugs
Defective Medical Devices
Hospital/Physician Negligence
Medical Malpractice
Misdiagnosis/Failure to Diagnose
Prescription Errors
Surgical Errors

Vehicular Accidents – Serious injury or death can occur in any accident involving a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or any powered vehicle such as scooters, or any transportation service such as buses, Uber, Lyft, or simply riding in someone else’s vehicle. Such accidents can involve commercial, company, or government vehicles, and be caused by distracted driving, drunk driving or other impaired driving, or simple negligence. Regardless, because of the nature of speed and impact, such accidents often cause serious injuries or death. You should pay special attention to any accidents that involve brain injury, concussion, spinal cord impairment, or paralysis. These tend to be permanent, debilitating injuries that you will deal with for the rest of your life and will inevitably require substantial money to treat, care for, and manage. Pedestrian accidents often lead to the most serious injuries and should be examined closely.

Construction or Workplace Accidents – Not all ‘workplace’ accidents are limited to workers’ compensation dollar limits. Many such accidents are caused by persons, companies, or conditions not controlled by your employer. In such cases, your recovery is not limited to the often-incomplete recovery offered by workers’ compensation benefits. Such accidents include burns/electrical accidents, slip/fall accidents, defective products, and other accidents occurring on property not owned by you.

About Ken Reich

For over eighteen years I worked for insurance companies at an insurance defense law firm. I decided that I needed to do what I enjoyed– helping people. So, two years ago I left and started my own personal injury practice as a partner in the boutique firm of Lewis | Hansen. In this context, “boutique” means a small, focused, and dedicated firm of lawyers doing what we love: helping people when unexpected serious injury, caused by others, changed their lives forever. 

I recently became familiar with the unexpected when I was riding as a high school mountain biking coach and crashed and broke– rather crushed– my hip. I was ten weeks non-weight-bearing on that leg. Certainly unexpected. I learned from first-hand experience the value of qualified medical experts, second opinions from qualified medical experts, insurance, health insurance, excess insurance, and lots of physical therapy. I also learned more about pain, anxiety, anger, frustration, and hard decisions. During my medical care, I received questionable medical advice. Thankfully, I put my legal experience to work for myself and obtained a second opinion which limited further harm to my already damaged hip.

If you want to get to know me more on a personal-interest level, you can read about my interests at my website ImetKen.com.

I would love to get to know you better and how I can help you through your unexpected serious injury. Please feel free to call or email me and we can set up a time to talk or meet.

Cheers!

Ken
