Personal Injury Lawyer in Post Falls, Idaho

When you’re injured, you could face some complicated challenges. You need to schedule medical appointments, but at the same time, you worry about the medical bills. There’s also the need to take time off of work for recovery, but you may not be able to afford to be away from the job.

In case of catastrophic injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one, your entire life turns upside down.

If you are injured by someone else, you could be eligible to receive compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, where you recover financial damages from the person who hurt you. If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, we believe you deserve the opportunity to seek fair compensation — and we’re here to help you do that.

Legal problems can be incredibly overwhelming. Moreover, attempting to handle these situations on your own during a vulnerable time can reduce your chances of receiving total and fair compensation for your physical injury and emotional distress.

However, don’t lose hope! Start working with a professional personal injury attorney to seek the brighter future you deserve. Personal injury attorneys will work to get you the justice you deserve.

Catastrophic Personal Injury

Catastrophic injuries leave people with long-term or permanent effects. These horrible injuries often cause compression on the spinal cord, which can result in paralysis.

Sometimes the injury is to the head, causing a traumatic brain injury from which a person cannot often recover. In some rare and terrible cases, catastrophic injuries may result in wrongful death, leaving the family shattered.

Motorcycle Accidents Attorney

The total number of Idaho motorcycle accidents is staggering and undoubtedly unfortunate. However, motorcycle accidents can happen anytime, anywhere.

There are many causes of motorcycle accidents. Sometimes, it is difficult to determine the exact cause, especially here in North Idaho, where the climate can be a factor during certain times of the year.

A serious injury from a motor vehicle collision may disrupt or permanently alter your life. If an insurance company is unwilling to compensate you adequately, you may need to hire a professional personal injury lawyer to get justice.

As your motorcycle accident attorney, I will work with your insurance company and the opposing insurance company to make sure your needs are handled appropriately.
