Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • Personal Injury Facts 

    Personal injury law provides individuals with legal recourse and the opportunity to recover compensation if they suffered injuries due to the carelessness or recklessness of another. 

    The costs of a personal injury, such as wage loss, healthcare expenses, and other losses, can be eye-watering. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that the estimated lifetime medical and work loss expenses due to injuries amounted to $671 billion in 2013 alone. 

  • Who Can Be Sued in a Personal Injury Case?

    Essentially, the harmed individual would sue the person, business, or entity that caused the accident and injuries of the victim. The defendant must have breached their “duty of care” for the victim to have a case. Examples of duty of care can include:

    • Motorists should operate their vehicles safely without carelessly causing accidents and injuries to other road users.
    • Grocery store management should ensure that the store is free from tripping and slipping hazards and other dangerous conditions.
    • Manufacturers of goods must take reasonable care that their products are free from defects that could harm consumers.
    • Doctors have the responsibility to treat their patients according to an acceptable standard of care.

    Since individuals, businesses, and government agencies have a duty of care towards others, lawsuits can arise in a wide variety of circumstances, including but not limited to:

    • Traffic accidents
    • Defective consumer products
    • Negligent medical care
    • Nursing home neglect
    • Boating and aviation accidents
    • Animal attacks  
  • Types of Personal Injury Cases

    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

    Negligent Security

    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
    • Assault
    • Attacks
    • Shootings
    • Murders

    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.  

  • Compensation You Could Recover

    If you win a personal injury case, you could receive damages for your costs as well as your suffering associated with your injuries. In detail, you could receive the following types of compensation:

    Healthcare Costs

    You could be entitled to reimbursement for all your medical expenses in connection with the accident and injury, as well as future expected medical costs, such as:

    • Hospital stays and surgeries
    • Medical devices and accessories
    • Medications
    • Physiotherapy and other rehabilitation needs
    • A home health aide
    • Loss of Income

    Suffering a catastrophic or permanent injury could leave you unable to return to work for some time or even forever. Victims could receive:

    • Past and present lost wages
    • Future loss of earning capacity
    • Pain and Anguish
    • Examples of non-economic damages you could receive can include physical pain, emotional distress, disability, loss of life enjoyment, and others.

    Depending on your accident and circumstances, you could also be entitled to additional damages. 

  • How to Prove a Personal Injury Case

    Most injury cases arise due to another party’s negligence. To have a case, the plaintiff (the injured person bringing the lawsuit) must generally prove the following legal elements: 

    Duty – the defendant owed the victim a duty of care. For example, all motor vehicle drivers owe other road users a duty of care.

    Breach of Duty – the victim must prove that the at-fault party breached their legal duty. A breach can occur, for example, if the defendant in a car accident was drunk or distracted and caused the crash. 

    Causation – the at-fault party’s negligence must have caused the plaintiff's injury. 

    Damages – to have a case, the plaintiff must have incurred actual damages, such as healthcare costs, lost income, pain and anguish, and others.  

  • How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

    You could have a personal injury case if your accident and injury were caused by the negligence or deliberate action of another person, business, or entity. However, to have a chance of recovering compensation, you must first prove the fault of the liable party. A personal injury attorney can examine the circumstances and facts of your accident and advise you on your next best steps.

  • Which Damages Can I Pursue?

    Since every personal injury case is unique, compensation that victims could pursue will also vary from one case to another. Generally, you could seek the following damages and others with a personal injury lawsuit:

    • Pain and suffering
    • Medical expenses
    • Loss of life quality and enjoyment
    • Lost wages
    • Future lost income
    • Emotional anguish
    • Disability

    If the defendant in your case acted particularly recklessly and egregiously in causing your accident, you could potentially also receive punitive damages in addition to the compensation you are entitled to. Discussing your case with one of our seasoned personal injury lawyers in Idaho can help you determine the approximate worth of your case.

  • Do I Have to Pay Medical Bills From a Settlement?

    In most cases, yes, you will have to reimburse your private health insurance or Medicaid/Medicare in a process called subrogation. However, how much you have to pay back can depend on several factors, including your insurance policies and your personal injury attorney’s negotiation skills. 

    It is important to note that ignoring the obligation to pay back your medical bills can have detrimental consequences. Health insurances, medical providers, and government agencies could issue medical liens. If you have received a medical lien, do not ignore it and hope it will go away. Instead, consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible regarding your options. You could face collection action if you fail to pay back your medical bills on time.

  • Do I Have to Go to Court for a Personal Injury Claim?

    According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, most personal injury claims find an out-of-court resolution. However, if the parties cannot agree on a settlement figure, a personal injury claim can go all the way to trial. A trial is more likely when a lot of money is at stake or fault is not clearly established. One of our personal injury lawyers in Idaho can negotiate a fair out-of-court settlement with the at-fault party and relevant insurance companies. If this proves impossible, your lawyer can take your case all the way to trial and fight strongly for what you need and deserve after suffering a personal injury. 

  • Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer in Idaho?

    Most personal injury lawyers do not charge attorney’s fees upfront but instead work on a “no-win-no-fee” agreement, also called “contingency”. You only have to pay the attorney’s fee if and when they win and you receive a settlement. This makes it affordable to hire legal representation and assistance for a personal injury case. 

    However, make sure you discuss the fees with your potential attorney. Some law firms, even though they work on a contingency basis, will charge clients for miscellaneous costs upfront. Those costs can include:

    • Court filing fees
    • Transcription fees
    • Expert witness fees
    • Costs for pulling documents

    Morgan & Morgan believes that everyone deserves justice, regardless of their financial standing. We want to help victims who suffered harm through no fault of their own get the justice and compensation they deserve through the legal system. Therefore, when we handle your case, you pay absolutely nothing until and unless we win.

  • How Can I Prove Pain and Suffering?

    Proving pain and suffering can be tricky. However, if you suffered significant injuries, you could be entitled to a considerable settlement amount for the pain and suffering you experienced. In general, seasoned personal injury attorneys can employ several methods to prove your pain and suffering for pursuing adequate compensation. Evidence can include: 

    • Medical bills and records
    • Physicians’ statements
    • Your recovery period and medical prognosis
    • Photographs of your injuries
    • Psychological records and evaluations
    • Expert medical witness testimony

    Our experienced personal injury attorneys generally work with medical experts to determine a dollar amount for your pain and suffering. 

  • Why Hire an Accident Attorney?

    Victims could potentially handle a personal injury lawsuit on their own. However, it is easy to underestimate the complexity of handling a personal injury case without professional legal support and guidance. Resolving injury cases can require a great deal of legal knowledge, time-consuming research, handling stacks of paperwork, and much dedication. An attorney can help with:

    • Completing the necessary paperwork for your case
    • Negotiating a fair out-of-court settlement
    • Providing investigators and expert witnesses to build your case
    • Fighting strongly for you in court

    According to the American Bar Association (ABA), self-represented litigants can be at a disadvantage. An attorney is not only there to fight for you at trial. They can protect your legal rights from beginning to end and ensure that the other side’s lawyers or insurance companies treat you fairly. If you are suing a corporation or government body, you could be up against one or several attorneys, fighting tooth and nail to deny your claim.
