If you have been in an auto accident or car crash and have sustained personal injuries through no fault of your own, it makes sense to consult a personal injury law firm. Mahoney Law offers free case evaluations, free initial consults, and contingency fees where you pay no attorney fees unless we win your case through settlement or trial to verdict. The deadline for filing a lawsuit arising from an injury accident is usually two years in Idaho, although this may be longer in certain cases (such as those involving minor children). You should not give statements to the opposing driver’s insurance company because, often, they will try to obtain admissions from you to establish fault on your part, and they may try to minimize your injuries or recovery process. You should always follow your medical doctors’ advice and seek follow-up appointments with appropriate specialists. Your first order of business is attending to your health and reaching maximum medical improvement and stability. We will need to gather police report documents, insurance information, and relevant medical records. Often, car accident cases can be resolved through the insurance claim process, particularly with strong legal representation. We are often successful in getting your healthcare insurance company to reduce the amount it must be paid back from any settlement, leaving more net settlement proceeds for our clients. If you, a family member, or other loved one have been injured, take the time to know your legal rights in the area of personal injury law and injury claims so you can make an intelligent, informed decision on how to best move forward.
