What To Do After An Accident in Idaho:

If you have been injured in an personal injury accident in Idaho it is always important to perserve the evidence in your case.  Even if you ultimately do not decide to sue the person or business that caused your personal injury, a record that has been perserved can make the difference between a solid case and a case that is more difficult to prove.

  • File an accident report-

-If you experience a personal injury at a public location such as a grocery store or a mall, file an                          accident report with customer service.

-If you don't personally fill out the report make certain to read over the report and make any                               necessary changes.  Initial any changes and request a copy of the report.  Don't leave without your                     copy.

  • Keep a written record -

-In your own words describe what happened at the time of your personal injury accident.
-Keep a log of how you are feeling.
-Keep a log of what your doctor told you to do and exactly how you are following doctor's orders.
-Record any new developments in pain.
-Record any statements or contact with the party responsible for your personal injury.

  • Go to the doctor or emergency room-

-Even if at the time of the injury you don not plan on filing suit, it is important to go to the doctor
because injuries can creep up on you.  In addition, if you ignore your pain until a later point,
insurance companies are more likely to deny your claim.  They love to say, "no medical treatement,
no injury".

  • Follow your doctor's orders and treatment plan even if it mean initially you will be out-of-pocket for the treatement-

-If you don't take the medications prescribed by your doctor or you don't follow your doctor's                treatment plan, the insurance companies will point to this and say that this is why you failed to                          recover or why you only had a partial recovery.

-In addition, it is important for you to get better.  Just because you get better does not mean that
you cannot get a settlement for your personal injury from the insurance company.  People often
think that recovery equals no settlement.  This simply is not the case.  Insurance is supposed to
put you back where you were before the accident.  If you are out-of-pocket for medical bills, have
lost wages associated with your personal injury or pain and suffering associated with your personal
injury, you are entitled to be compensated for this.

  • Contact a Boise Personal Injury Attorney-

-Even if you don't know for certain that you want to file suit against the individual or the company                      that caused your personal injury a Boise Personal Injury Attorney can help you understand your                           situation and help you to decide how to preceed.

  • Remember - you are entitled to be made whole.  Don't let the insurance company tell you that your pain, your suffering, your physical, emotional and financial struggle is only worth what they are will to pay.  Give us a call today.  You will be glad you did.
