FAQs: Understanding Your Rights After an Accident in Idaho
Q: How do I know if I should speak to a lawyer after an accident?
If you have suffered injuries in any type of accident, it will be well worth your time to speak with a personal injury lawyer. Personal injury law is complicated, and there are numerous circumstances under which you may be entitled to financial compensation. We routinely speak with individuals who are unclear about their legal rights, and our Idaho injury lawyers will be happy to help you make informed decisions about pursuing a claim for compensation.
Q: Do I need a lawyer if my case is going through the insurance companies?
Yes. The vast majority of accident cases are resolved through insurance settlements. Unfortunately, far too many of these settlements are for much less than the victims deserve. The insurance companies put their interests first, and they are under no obligation to help accident victims understand the full extent of their financial and non-financial losses. Additionally, insurance companies regularly dispute liability, and in many cases, they will blame the victim. As a result, unrepresented victims often endure months of struggles only to recover minimal compensation.
An Idaho injury attorney will be able to deal with the insurance companies for you. With our experienced personal injury attorneys, you can be sure to seek full compensation, and you can avoid mistakes that could jeopardize your financial recovery. At Petersen, Parkinson & Arnold PLLC, our Idaho injury attorneys will not take your case unless we are confident that we can help you recover significantly more than you could recover on your own.
Q: What types of losses can I recover in a personal injury claim?
Under Idaho law, you are entitled to financial compensation for all of your accident-related losses. This includes:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Other past and future out-of-pocket expenses
- Past and future loss of income
- Pain, suffering and emotional trauma
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of companionship, support, and enjoyment of life
In serious accident cases, these losses can be substantial. When you hire a skilled Idaho injury lawyer at Petersen, Parkinson & Arnold PLLC to represent you, we will make sure that you have a thorough understanding of your past and future losses so that you can make informed decisions about settling with the insurance companies or taking your case to trial.
Experienced Idaho Personal Injury Lawyers Ready To Serve You
In Idaho, personal injury claims are governed by the law of “negligence”. While the law is complex, in broad terms, this means that accident victims can seek financial compensation whenever someone else is legally at fault for what happened. Idaho law also follows a rule known as “comparative fault,” which means that accident victims can seek partial compensation even when they are partially at fault for their own injuries.
Each case is unique, and the only way to understand your rights is to speak or meet with an experienced lawyer. When you contact us about your case, we will arrange for you to meet one-on-one with a highly-skilled Idaho Falls personal injury lawyer at our offices. Your initial consultation is free and confidential; and with our contingency-fee representation, you do not pay anything unless we help you secure a financial recovery.
