Not all who get hurt in an accident automatically have a personal injury case. To have a personal injury claim, another must have negligently or deliberately caused harm to the victim. Common examples of personal injury cases can include:
Car and Truck Accidents
According to the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), one person was injured in a motor vehicle accident every 40.6 minutes in Idaho in 2017. Aggressive driving accounted for more than half of all crashes, followed by distracted driving. If you suffered injuries due to an aggressive or careless driver, you could be entitled to compensation. An Idaho injury lawyer from our firm can help you file a personal injury lawsuit whether you were injured in a truck, car, motorcycle, or other traffic accident.
Premises Liability Cases
Slips and falls can be tragic, in particular for seniors who may have to give up independent living after suffering a severe fall injury such as a broken hip. Visitors to a property have the right to be reasonably safe, whether from hazardous conditions or crimes such as assaults and robberies.
Slip and Fall
If you slipped or tripped and fell due to a dangerous condition on public or private property, you could have a case against a property owner or other responsible party. Dangerous conditions can include:
- Insufficient lighting
- Broken or missing floorboards
- Wet floors
- Potholes and cracks in sidewalks
- Loose mats and rugs
If a property owner failed to install appropriate security measures at their premises, such as adequate locks, gates, security cameras, and others, victims of a crime could have a personal injury case and seek compensation. Negligent security incidents can include but are not limited to:
- Violent robbery
There can be other premises liability cases such as dog attacks and exposure to toxic chemicals. One of our attorneys can analyze your case and advise you of your legal options if you suffered an injury due to a property owner’s negligence.
Defective Product Lawsuits
Product liability claims can deal with numerous different products, including medications, children’s toys, electrical appliances, car parts, and many other consumer products we use daily. If you or a loved one got injured by a design defect, manufacturing mistake, or false marketing and labelling, you could have a case and potentially receive compensation.
