Unfortunately, car accidents occur every single day. While many collisions result in minor damage that can be handled directly with an insurance company, others which involve substantial damage, physical injury or fatality may require legal representation from an experienced and skilled auto accident attorney.
A motor vehicle attorney can help you recover compensation which covers any losses incurred as a result of an accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Car repairs
- Wrongful death claim, due to a fatality of a loved one
According to Idaho’s statute of limitations regarding personal injury claims, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in the state’s civil courts. However, it’s imperative to retain legal services early to avoid significant errors or any missed details that are still fresh, as well as covering medical expenses and lost wages.
Your car accident lawyer should possess the extensive knowledge of Idaho and national transportation laws, know how to handle complexities with insurance and healthcare companies, and understand how to adequately represent their clients in court. You can do your own research by verifying an attorney’s background, references and track record of success.
The following are important questions you should ask the potential lawyer of your choice:
- What percentage of your practice is dedicated to car accident claims?
- How much experience do you have with car accident claims and injuries?
- How are your fees structured?
- What is the usual settlement range for cases like mine?
- What am I responsible in paying for?
