Auto Accident Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Talk To An Auto Accident Lawyer After An Idaho Car Accident?

Sufferers of traffic accidents who have an attorney get a settlement that is 3 1/2 times greater on average than those who do not, according to the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC). To help ensure you get all the compensation that is available to you, so you do not leave any on the table, hire a personal injury attorney to represent you.

Coeur d’Alene auto accident lawyers at The Sargent Firm will do more than represent you during settlement negotiations or in court. To prove the other driver was at fault, while also verifying the extent of your injuries and calculating a fair value for the damages you suffered, they will gather the evidence necessary. In many instances, we help our clients mediate a fair settlement with the insurance company without having to go court.

This means not putting others at risk and avoiding violations of the Idaho Traffic Laws. As a part of this mediation, drivers may be legally and financially responsible if they fail to exercise reasonable care and cause an auto accident.

What Type of Damages Can I Recover After A Motorcycle Accident?

You might be entitled to receive compensation for a number of damages, if another motorist was responsible for the accident that cause your injuries, including:

  • Rehabilitation bills
  • Motorcycle and other property damage
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering

After the Idaho police department has written up a report, sufferers generally have a few options to recoup compensation which we encourage them to discuss with our automobile accident lawyers. An automobile accident lawyer can help with:

How Does Liability Work In Idaho?

Idaho is a fault state, meaning that the at-fault party is responsible for paying for damages caused in a crash. In most cases, the driver’s auto liability insurance policy covers the damages.

There are a number of ways that sufferers can recover compensation from the liable parties after a motorcycle accident under Idaho law. Sufferers can:

  • Seek compensation from the liable party’s insurance company
  • File suit against the liable party
  • File an insurance claim under their own policy (depending on the level of coverage)

It is critical to note that on occasion more than one person shares the responsibility in causing a motorcycle accident. When this happens, the funds received from each of the liable parties correspond to the amount of fault appointed to them by the court. This is called comparative fault or comparative negligence. Your compensation will be reduced accordingly if you are partially at fault.

You will be required to prove that the accident was the fault of the other driver or drivers, and you were not at fault, once you file a personal injury suit. The key in getting the maximum compensation possible is being able to prove your actions did not contribute to the crash. This may require an extensive investigation and aggressive advocacy from an attorney, depending on the facts of your accident.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

According to a study by the Insurance Research Counsel (IRC), people who hire a lawyer get 3 1/2 times more compensation for their car accident claim.

Insurance companies don’t want you to retain an attorney because they want to pay out the least amount possible. You get these benefits when you do hire a personal injury lawyer.

Are You A No Win No Fee Law Firm?

The majority of personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means they will not require payment unless they are able to get compensation for you, if they take your case. Then, their fee will come out of that compensation.

The Sargent Law Firm will provide a free consultation, and will charge a contingency fee, only if you receive a settlement or judgment in your favor.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

You may be entitled to receive money for your damages, if you have been injured as a result of someone’s negligence. The law can afford you the right to recover money for physical injuries, medical costs (past and future), pain and suffering, mental and emotional anguish, inconvenience, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, property damage, and other losses. You also may be able to recover punitive damages as well. Most people believe that the insurance companies will pay you 3 times your medical expenses for your pain and suffering. This is false. The insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim. To help identify what type of damages you are entitled to and to fight to get them, his is why you may need a personal injury attorney. Most litigants who were hurt in a traffic accident and secure a personal injury lawyer will recoup 3 times more compensation than they would have without an attorney.

Insurance companies know they stand a greater chance of ending your case for less than what it is worth if you do not have an attorney. Our Coeur d’Alene personal injury attorneys look at all of the data to conclude what the value of your case is. Every case is different and needs to be individually evaluated to determine what the case is worth. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to speak to a personal injury attorney about how much your case is worth. We will consult with you about what your damages are and how much you may be entitled to recoup free of charge and with no commitment.
