Idaho Personal Injury Guide

ID personal injury cases & accident info

Despite being decidedly rural, Idaho has its fair share of lawsuits and liability stemming from negligence cases. That is probably because it is a very active state, what with its outdoor pursuits: state parks, waterfalls, beaches, fishing, hot springs, and more. Maybe it's you who was hurt and needs help, or perhaps it was a friend or family member.

Whatever the case, if you need guidance for your personal injury suit, Enjuris can connect you to what you need.

Idaho's car accident statutes of limitation

In Idaho, you have two years to bring a personal injury claim and three years to bring a property damage claim. That doesn't mean the whole lawsuit must be completed in that span of time; it just means the paperwork has to be filed with the court before that time is up.

Hiring a lawyer in Idaho

The initial meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free of charge. (Keep in mind that other legal specialties, such as intellectual property law or estate planning law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency fee, which means that they will receive a third of the eventual reward, plus office expenses.

If your case ends up going to trial, the percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't set in stone, so don't be shocked if your lawyer suggests something different.
