Every Case Is Unique
All too often people consider collisions between cars to be simple “accidents,” which is really just another way of saying that unfortunate things happen and it’s really no one’s fault. The truth is that when cars collide it is usually due to someone’s choosing to pay attention to distractions, such as phone calls, texts, or other commotion. Or it may be that the driver was in a hurry and chose to speed, driving too fast for conditions, or otherwise set aside the responsibility of driving safely. Our experience will help you avoid falling into the trap of having your injuries described as the result of simple accident, rather than the choice of someone else to avoid the responsibility of acting in safe manner.
An incident involving a semi-tractor and trailer or other large truck is much different than a simple car crash for several reasons: first, the law of physics means that the great size and weight of a truck will cause much more damage than a car traveling at the same speed at the time of the collision. Second, truck drivers are supposed to know and comply with safety requirements because they are professionals, trained and required to be looking out for the safety of others. Finally, the commercial enterprises that run trucks for profit must carry extensive insurance, follow stringent safety rules, and never put their profits over the safety of the driving public. Our experience will help you keep those who have ignored their commercial obligations accountable for their actions.
When the permanent loss of a loved one occurs, the emotional harm is often devastating and unavoidable. For the rest of your life, you will have to deal with the loss of many services, some of which you took for granted, that your loved one provided on a daily basis. Allow us to help you identify, value, and recover for those irreplaceable losses.
When injured by a vehicle, a pedestrian can recover damages for the injuries suffered if someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to those injuries. A person who fails to exercise a reasonable standard of care under the circumstances may be considered negligent. Nevertheless, both the driver and the pedestrian can be negligent. In addition to pedestrian vehicle accidents, non-vehicle pedestrian accidents can also happen. Poor upkeep, sidewalks or parking lot faults and construction or other debris on sidewalks or pathways can also cause accidents. We will represent your best interests and not allow insurance company representatives bully you into accepting a settlement for less than you deserve.

Product liability is when the manufacturer or seller is being held liable for selling defective products to consumers. Responsibility for a defect that causes injuries falls upon the sellers of the product. The law requires that a product meet the ordinary expectation of the consumer. When a product has an unforeseen defect, the product cannot be said to meet the ordinary expectation of the consumer. If you have been injured by a poorly designed or manufactured product, please contact us today to discuss how we may help you.
A personal injury case is a legal dispute that arises when an individual suffers harm and damages from an accident or injury, and someone else may be legally responsible for the harm and damages. A personal injury case can be resolved in court proceedings or through settlement before or after a lawsuit has been filed.
A formal lawsuit begins when an individual (plaintiff) files a legal complaint against another person, corporation, business or government agency (defendant), asserting that they acted negligently or carelessly in connection with an accident or injury the plaintiff suffered.
Some personal injury disputes may be resolved through settlement. This typically occurs among the plaintiff and defendant, their insurance companies and attorneys. Settlement is commonly achieved through negotiations or mediations and is followed by a written legal agreement in which plaintiff and defendant agree to resolve the matter through a financial payment. When a case is resolved in this manner, the plaintiff and defendants waive any further legal action on the case.
A plaintiff has a limited time in which to file a lawsuit. This is called “statute of limitations”. The time dictated by the statute of limitations begins when plaintiff suffers an injury. Statutes of limitations are established by state law and can vary by type of injury and state. In Idaho, the statute of limitations for injuries to an individual is two years.
