Car accidents happen every day in Caldwell and across Idaho. Some accidents result in minor inconveniences, and those involved walk away with no injuries. Other times, however, car accidents can have serious consequences, including severe injuries and damages. After a car accident, you may be saddled with significant medical bills, lost income, and other accident-related expenses.
If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident caused by someone else, you might be entitled to compensation for your losses. Attorneys at Tillmann Law represent clients who have suffered injuries and damages in car accidents. We pursue all responsible parties to recover compensation that our clients need to heal and move on after their accidents.

The amount of compensation that you will recover for your accident depends on several factors, such as the severity of your injuries, your accident-related costs, and whether or not you were partially at fault for the accident. In general, the more severe your injuries are, the more you will recover in compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, future medical expenses, and lost income.
Under many circumstances, even when injured parties are partially responsible for their car accidents, Idaho’s comparative fault law does not bar them from making a claim for compensation from other at-fault parties. So long as the injured party’s percentage of fault is less than the defendant’s fault, the injured party may seek compensation which is then reduced by the claimant’s percentage of fault.
For example, suppose you are involved in a car accident, and it was determined that you were 20% at fault for the accident, and the defendant was 80% at fault. If your injuries and damages were $100,000, your compensation would be reduced by 20%, and the defendant would be responsible for paying $80,000 of your losses.
