How do I start a personal injury claim?
Starting a personal injury claim usually means filing legal documents with a court. Sometimes, you pursue the case by filing directly with an insurance company. There is important work to do before you formally start the case, including investigating fault, assessing damages and preserving the evidence. When you work with us, our lawyers evaluate what you need to do and get started right away.
Do I have a personal injury claim?
There are lots of types of personal injury claims – car accidents, slip and falls, animal attacks, assault and battery and more. What they have in common is that you are hurt because of the actions of someone else. A personal injury can occur because of inaction on someone else’s part, too. Not all personal injury accidents happen on purpose. Many are the result of simple negligence, and that can be enough to have a personal injury claim. Contact us for a personalized evaluation of your case.
How much can I receive in financial compensation?
Financial compensation is based on your economic losses and your pain and suffering. Direct financial impact may include medical bills, lost income if you’re unable to work and property damage. The compensation you receive may also include pain and suffering and emotional anguish. There may be limitations on non-economic damages, but there is no limit to economic damages for personal injury victims in Idaho.
Can I bring a case if I share fault for the accident?
Idaho uses a system of comparative fault. That means it is still possible to receive compensation even if you have some fault for the accident. The amount you receive is reduced based on your degree of fault. If you are 50% or more at fault for the accident, then you receive no compensation.
Don’t assume that you have comparative fault just because the insurance company says that you do. The insurance company may bring it up to try and discourage you. Let our lawyers help you understand if comparative fault is a question in your case. We can help you fight back against unfair allegations and pursue the fair compensation that you deserve.
What’s involved in bringing a personal injury claim?
To bring a personal injury claim, you determine who is at fault and what the avenue is for claiming compensation. Medical records, property damage appraisals, and wage statements can all be used to document damages. Experts may be needed to explain and analyze complex information.
Our lawyers can represent you through the legal steps whether it is appearing in court, preparing documents, or using the legal process to build evidence. We handle strategy and settlement negotiations on your behalf. The exact path depends on your specific case and how it unfolds. At your consultation, we can give you more information about what to expect.
How long does a personal injury case take?
There’s no simple answer for how long a personal injury case takes. It depends on the type of case, how clear fault is, who is responsible for damages and how easy it is to verify what you deserve in compensation. One of the ways that we assist our clients is by working to make the claims process as efficient as possible. We want to help you work through your case efficiently while still ensuring that we do what it takes to maximize your compensation.
