Our Idaho Personal Injury Lawyers Fight for Justice for Victims

Sargent Law Firm Injury Lawyers represents victims and their families hurt by someone else’s negligence in Idaho. Our team begins our 7-step process with a free case review with a potential client. Next, they hire us to represent them.

Once we begin investigating their case and discussing their next steps, we develop a case plan to address their unique needs. We also ensure they receive the medical treatment and care necessary throughout this process.

We demand fair compensation from the liable party and their insurer and are often able to reach a settlement at this point in the process. If not, litigation is possible. Our trial lawyers file a lawsuit and prepare to take the case before a judge and jury.

You do not have to take our word for it that our attorneys can help you after an Idaho personal injury accident. Instead, listen to our:

Our attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis. If we do not win your case, you pay nothing. There are no upfront fees, and nothing owed until we close your case and recover compensation for you. Our attorney’s fees only come from the money you receive, never from your own accounts.

Let Our Idaho Personal Injury Lawyers Pursue Damages in Your Case

While holding the at-fault party accountable does provide some form of justice, victims need compensation to help them pay for the expenses and losses they incurred. This is frequently possible by building a compelling case and negotiating with the insurance company or taking the case to trial and asking the jury to award damages.

Each case differs based on its facts, value, and the types of damages suffered. However, some of the most common recoverable damages include:

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages refer to all the intangible damages victims incur because of a personal injury. This category encompasses physical pain, emotional distress, lost life enjoyment, mental anguish, and scarring and disfigurement.

These non-economic damages are among the most difficult to value when preparing to negotiate for a settlement. However, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to seek a fair payout for them.

Medical Expenses, Current and Future

Medical costs are not just limited to the doctor’s bills received after treatment; recompense can help cover the cost required for the ambulance ride to the hospital, surgeries, prescription drugs, and even the ongoing physical therapy that may be required.

Lost Income

When a victim is recovering from serious injuries sustained in an accident, they often need days or weeks off work to recuperate. For many, that means missing out on the opportunity to earn much-needed income. Our attorney can help recoup the income victims missed out on while recovering.

In some cases, victims may never regain the ability to perform tasks the way they once could, jeopardizing their careers. Victims may seek compensation for their loss of earning capacity. While no amount of money can make up for the pain endured by an accident victim, compensation can relieve the financial burden placed on the victim and make healing a little easier.

Common Idaho Personal Injury Accident Cases

Personal injuries occur in many ways. Our legal team handles almost any type of negligence accident. We believe victims of accidents of all kinds can benefit from hiring an Idaho personal injury lawyer. Some of the most common accident types we handle include:

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Cyclists and pedestrians often fall victim to catastrophic injuries when involved in collisions with cars. Even a minor car accident involving a cyclist or pedestrian can turn deadly. When the victim survives, their entire life may need to change based on the injuries they sustain.

Our law firm takes bicycle accident injuries to heart. As avid cyclists, we know how these collisions occur and the unique dangers encountered when sharing the roads with motorists. If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to a careless or reckless driver, let us review your Idaho injury case for free.

Traffic Accidents

Motor vehicle crash victims are some of our most common clients. If a negligent driver is responsible for an accident involving a car, SUV, motorcycle, or tractor-trailer, and it leads to injuries, you may consider seeking the expertise of a specialized attorney.

A car accident lawyer, motorcycle accident lawyer, or truck accident lawyer can assist you in pursuing a claim for the damages incurred.

Nursing Home Abuse

Loved ones in nursing homes are neglected and abused far too often. Our attorneys can help your family seek justice and ensure the abuse stops. Compensation to provide for the transfer to a better facility may be available.

If you suspect abuse at a long-term care facility in Idaho, call our team today. We can provide guidance and advice about your next steps.

Slip and Falls and Other Fall Injuries

Our personal injury lawyer in Idaho can also help victims of slip and fall accidents. Anytime a visitor or guest is injured because a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, a lawsuit is possible.

By neglecting their property to the point of someone seriously injuring themselves, the property owner is often held liable. An insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit could hold the property owner or occupier accountable, recovering compensation for your damages.

Dog Bites

Generally, we need to prove negligence to hold the dog’s owner or handler responsible for a dog bite you sustained. If you did nothing to provoke the dog and were legally on the owner’s property, you may have legal options. Our team can explain how we can pursue justice and help you recover compensation to pay for your medical bills when you contact us.

What Is a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury is the area of law that addresses negligence accidents and injuries. When one party acts negligently—that is, in a careless or reckless way—and it causes injuries, the victim should not have to pay the resulting economic and non-economic costs. They experience a wide range of expenses and losses and are left shouldering both their injuries and the financial stress of an accident they did nothing to cause.

Personal injury law attempts to right this wrong. It allows the victim, known as the plaintiff in a lawsuit, to hold the liable party (the defendant) accountable. While the law allows victims to sue those responsible for their personal injuries, this is not always necessary.

Our attorneys often negotiate settlements in these cases, working with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier to reach an agreement on a payout amount. Alternatively, we will sue and take a case to trial as necessary. Our team represents clients in arbitration and other alternative dispute measures as needed.

What Kind of Injuries Support a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury victims suffer their injuries in a wide range of ways. In general, any injury could support a personal injury claim. If you required medical care because of your injury, call us. You can learn more about your legal options during a free case review.

While we manage cases with all types of injuries, we understand the extreme emotional and financial strain that comes with life-altering, catastrophic injuries. These injuries often call for a medevac helicopter airlift to a trauma center, hospitalization, inpatient rehabilitation, and ongoing care. You could have suffered injuries like:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries, with or without paralysis
  • Serious burns
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Loss of use injuries
  • Serious internal injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Major fractures and other significant limb injuries

According to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Idaho does not have a Level I trauma center. However, there are four Level II trauma centers suitable for providing life-saving care, surgery, and rehabilitation. These include:

  • Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls
  • Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene
  • ​​Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello
  • Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise

Sometimes, injuries are not survivable, and victims pass away because of the severity of their injuries or related complications. In Idaho, the victim’s heirs or personal representative can pursue a wrongful death action. Our attorneys handle these cases and seek fair compensation based on the law and case facts.

Our Idaho Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You Prove Negligence

When our personal injury team takes on an Idaho case, we begin with a free case review. We learn more about the case facts and begin to get to know the victim and their family. Once the client hires us, we notify the insurance company and other involved parties immediately. We manage all aspects of the case as we navigate the process, letting the client focus on their health and recovery.

We assess the client’s options, determining if an insurance claim or lawsuit might be a better approach. This occurs as we investigate what happened, identify the likely liable parties, and develop a compelling case to show fault. This requires us to document that negligence occurred. There are four elements to negligence:

  • Duty of care: The liable party had a responsibility to keep you safe.
  • Breach of duty: They did not maintain their duty of care, instead acting with negligence.
  • Causation: Their negligence was the proximate cause of your accident and the injuries you suffered.
  • Damages: You suffered damages because of their negligence.

How Much Time Do You Have to Sue the Liable Party in Idaho?

When we need to sue the liable party in a personal injury case, the Idaho statute of limitations generally gives us two years to do so, per Idaho Code § 5-219. Missing this deadline could limit your right to pursue damages, so contact us as soon as possible after your injuries occur.

Getting an early start has other advantages, too. Bringing your case to our team early in the legal process gives us plenty of time to interview witnesses and collect evidence that may be lost over time.
