Christopher Thresher, Personal Injury Attorney

As an attorney, Christopher has extensive professional knowledge with legal litigation. He practiced in Oregon prior to coming to Utah. His professional devotion to personal injury cases stems from life experiences. When Chris was younger, he lost his eye in an accident. He witnessed how his parents were treated by the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance provider took advantage of his parents and did not fully compensate Chris for losing his eye and ability to see. The experience taught him that it’s important to have someone fight for your rights. Large insurance companies and corporations can—and will—take advantage of people who don’t have someone fighting for them and making sure they are treated fairly.
