Personal Injury

Idaho Personal Injury Claims

The term "Personal Injury" covers numerous types of claims arising from a wide variety of circumstances.  A personal injury may occur due to automobile collisions, railroad grade crossings, airplane crashes, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and any number of other situations where traumatic injury occurs due to the negligence or fault of others.

There is a two years statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Idaho. You must either settle your claim or file suit within that 2 year time period.  If you were injured by someone else's negligence, you are entitled to receive compensatory damages that include:

 

  • Economic losses for past and future medical expenses, including medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, hospital or surgical expenses, etc.

  • Loss of wages or income and impaired earning capacity

  • Non-economic damages for past and future pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and lost enjoyment of life.

  • Loss of consortium

  • There is no limit on the amount of economic losses you may recover; however, non-economic losses may be limited by Idaho statute unless special circumstances exist that may result in the non-economic damage cap to be inapplicable in your case.

    There are several steps you must take when you are pursuing a personal injury claim, including:

  • Obtain a copy of the police or incident report if one exists

  • Obtain any witness statements

  • Take multiple photographs from every angle of the site of the mishap and, if possible, of the individuals involved, including their injuries

  • Starting a "pain and limitation journal" to document how the injuries affect your life, work, relationships and other daily activities.

The things you should not do include:

  • Do not give a written or recorded statement to any insurance adjuster without first consulting with an attorney;

  • Do not sign any documents, especially do not sign any medical releases involving your claim.  By signing a medical release you may give the insurance company unfettered permission to check your medical history since the day you were born.  This could include access to information you may feel is highly confidential.

  • Do not discuss how the mishap occurred with others.
