Frequent Asked Questions Following A Car Accident in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho:

What do I do after a car accident?

The immediate aftermath following a car accident can be one of the most stressful times of anyone’s life. However, it is imperative to obtain essential information as soon as possible. Due to the possibility of a “hit and run,” it is best to get a police report filed straightaway after the car accident happens.

Do I Have a Case?

The first thing that most people wonder when they are in a car accident in Idaho is if they have a case. In general, if you were injured due to the negligence of someone else, you usually have a legal claim against the person causing the injury. Because every situation is unique, you should always consult a car accident attorney to review the specifics of your individual case. The attorneys at The Sargent Firm offer consultations to determine the best route to take.

Can I deal with my Idaho car accident case on my own, or do I need an attorney?

Before proceeding on your own, it is recommended that you fully understand the pitfalls of trying to handle your case without experienced legal representation.

Following a car accident, it is understandable for an individual to want to have the matter settled as soon as possible. As a result, people tend to navigate the legal system without the help of an experienced attorney specializing in car accidents.

You can be sure that the legal team of the negligent party—usually an insurance company—will be working tirelessly to pay out as little as possible. They care about their bottom line. The Sargent Firm cares about our clients. When you retain The Sargent Firm to fight for you, you are ensuring that you are not taken advantage of by the insurance companies.

You should retain The Sargent Firm because our attorneys are experienced and have the expertise to handle even the most complicated car accident cases. We are fully prepared to take the guilty party to court in order to get judicial intervention if necessary. Our highest priority is getting justice for our clients. By simply having a car accident attorney, you are sending a message that you are not willing to be shorted.

You need an experienced attorney knowledgeable about Idaho law in order to effectively fight for your rights and to indicate to the insurance company that you are serious about your car accident claim and getting what you are legally entitled to.

Should I accept the insurance company’s settlement after my car accident?

Generally, the answer is no.

Insurance companies are incentivized to pay out as little as possible. Therefore, there is a good chance you are not getting full compensation for your injuries and damages. Regardless of how nice the insurance adjustor may appear, the adjuster’s sole goal is to pay you as little as possible.

The experienced car accident attorneys at our office will go to battle with the insurance company to ensure you get what is legally entitled to you.

Understanding what causes car accidents in Idaho

Car accidents in Idaho can be broken down into three general categories:

Negligence – driver error;
Defective Vehicle – bad parts or design defects; and
Third Party liability – unsafe road design, unreasonable safety hazards, improper road signage.

  1. Negligence:
    The single most common cause of car accidents in Coeur d’Alene and rest of Idaho is driver error, legally referred to as negligence. The latest Department of Motor Vehicle statistics indicate that over 66% of all car accidents involved two vehicles, with one of the drivers making a driving error that directly causes the accident.
  2. Defective Vehicles:
    Regardless of how careful you are, there is always a chance you may be in an accident.
    Unfortunately, manufacturers of cars and other vehicles often put unsafe cars on the road, directly causing an accident or greatly increasing the chances of one occurring. Car accident lawsuits stemming from defective and unsafe vehicles could involve issues like defective tires, high rollover susceptibility, malfunctioning seat belts, defective door latches, dangerous air bags, deficient crashworthiness, and/or inadequate roof protection.
    These types of cases can be especially challenging, so it is best to hire one our experienced car accident attorneys to navigate the legal system with you.
  3. Third Party Liability:
    Third party liability suits generally includes situations where road signs were missing, defective roadways were ill-maintained (e.g. large potholes), and instances where construction equipment or other material was left on the road.
