Steps to Take Following an Accident
A paralysis victim may have problems getting fair compensation in an insurance company settlement. Finding a paralysis injury lawyer in Nampa is an important next step.
The police report and car accident report are important components of an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
Filing a claim must be done before the deadline.
Idaho Statutes Section. 5-219 explains that a victim has no more than two years from the date of an accident to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
If the claim is not filed within the deadline, the injured claimant may be unable to recover compensation from the party responsible for their injuries.
A skilled Nampa paralysis injury lawyer can make sure all of the right documents are filed within the statute of limitations.
Fault, Negligence, and Injury Lawsuits
The person who caused the injuries, or the defendant, might argue the injury victim was partly or fully responsible for causing the accident.
The State of Idaho follows the comparative negligence doctrine.
This states an injured plaintiff can still recover compensation even if they are partially at fault for the accident.
An investigation of the accident scene and circumstances may reveal one party is more responsible than the other or that multiple parties were responsible.
If the injured plaintiff is found to be 50 percent or more responsible for causing an accident, they cannot recover any compensation in a lawsuit.
The seasoned attorneys at Skaug Law help injured victims fight allegations of shared responsibility so they win maximum compensation.
