If you were involved in a car accident due to someone else’s fault, you might assume that your accident-related injuries and damages will be covered by their insurance policy. Unfortunately, even when insurance companies are responsible for car accident claims, they are generally not interested in providing fair compensation to cover all accident losses. They are more interested in keeping their claim values low and protecting their profits.
Attorneys at Tillmann Law know from experience that those who have an attorney typically recover more compensation than those who handle their claims without legal representation. An experienced legal advocate knows the applicable personal injury laws and how to negotiate with defendants and insurance companies to help you get maximum compensation for your losses. Contact our office online or by calling (503) 683-8113 to schedule a consultation.
We handle personal injury claims involving all types of car accident scenarios, including single and multiple vehicle accidents, uninsured and underinsured motorists, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, and commercial vehicle collisions. To prove your claim against the responsible parties, you must identify the accident cause and contributing factors.
During our accident investigation, we will interview witnesses, review accident reports, inspect the accident scene, and gather any additional evidence. Findings from our analysis will help us determine causes and contributing factors, such as speed, distracted driving, failure to yield, unsafe lane changes, and vehicle defects.
A common car accident defense tactic is to blame the injured claimant for the accident. Fortunately, even if you were partially responsible for the accident, you might still be entitled to compensation, depending on your particular accident facts. Under Idaho law, you are generally entitled to recover compensation if you were at fault for the accident, so long as the defendant’s percentage of fault was greater than yours.
For example, if you were 30% at fault for the accident and the defendant was determined to be 70% at fault, you would be entitled to your total accident-related losses reduced by 30% for your part in the accident. An experienced car accident attorney can help you understand Idaho’s comparative fault law and whether or not it impacts your right to compensation for your injuries and damages.
