Injuries can leave you facing a mix of emotions. Part of you may feel angry at the responsible party and want to seek revenge. But the other part of you might realize that what happened was an accident, and thus, feel guilty about pursuing punishment against them. This is fair and understandable, but remember: 

When you file a personal injury lawsuit against someone, you’re often targeting their insurance company rather than the individual. Insurance providers exist to cover situations just like yours—they understand that accidents don’t erase responsibility. Therefore, you should not hesitate to take advantage of the resources available to you. It’s completely within your rights to hire an attorney and file a claim.

Defining Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to what you suffer when another party, either through negligence or intentional actions, causes you harm. So, anytime you are hurt due to the actions of another, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. This harm can stem from a variety of incidents, including:  

At Shep Law Group, we understand that personal injury isn't just about physical harm — it also impacts an individual's mind, emotions, and everyday life.  

When you've suffered a personal injury, seeking compensation becomes crucial to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other damages. This is where hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can make a monumental difference. By channeling our knowledge and insights, we can increase your chances of obtaining a fair settlement or winning a lawsuit.



Why Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?

You may think that it’s not worth filing a lawsuit over a minor injury, but you should know that filing a claim does not necessarily lead to a trial.  

Personal injury cases are often resolved through out-of-court settlements. And these resolutions can be immensely beneficial to you and your loved ones. After all, minor wounds still typically require medical treatment, time away from work, and many limitations in your daily life. Rather than tolerating these consequences and footing the bill on your own, the responsible party at fault should compensate you accordingly.  

If you've suffered a personal injury due to another party's negligence or intentional actions, we'd advise reaching out to a lawyer in your area as soon as possible. In these cases, time is of the essence, with strict deadlines determining how long you have to file a lawsuit.  

At Shep Law Group, we're here to protect your rights from the moment your case begins. We'll guide you through the process, help you gather evidence, assess the value of your claim, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court if necessary. By involving us early on, you can rest easy, knowing that your rights are safeguarded and you have a great chance of receiving fair compensation for your injuries and losses. 

What's more, we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only get paid if we win your case. This arrangement allows you to access legal representation without upfront costs or financial risks. We're here for you, serving clients throughout Boise, Meridian, Ada County, Canyon County, and across Idaho. Let's navigate this together. 

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in Idaho

In Idaho, the statute of limitations—the time limit within which a personal injury lawsuit must be filed—is two years from the date of the injury or when the injury was discovered. Keeping this deadline in mind is crucial, as failure to file a lawsuit within the specified time frame can result in losing your right to seek compensation. 

However, there are exceptions to this general two-year statute of limitations. For instance, if the injured party is a minor or mentally incapacitated, the statute of limitations may be extended. We at Shep Law Group can help you understand the specific deadlines that apply to your case. 

Remember, gathering evidence, conducting investigations, and negotiating with insurance companies can take time. That's why it's advisable to contact us as soon as possible after the injury occurs.  

Understanding Negligence and What Your Claim Needs to Prove

Personal injury cases hinge on the legal premise of negligence. That is, the party responsible failed to exercise adequate care, thereby causing harm to you. For your personal injury claim to be successful, it needs to include the following four elements:  

  1. Duty of care: The defendant owed you a legal duty to act with reasonable care. For example, a driver owes other road users a duty to drive safely. 

  1. Breach of duty: The defendant failed to uphold their duty of care through action or inaction. 

  1. Causation: The breach of duty directly caused your injury. 

  1. Damages: You suffered harm as a result of the defendant's actions. 

As your personal injury attorneys, our job is to prove these elements by gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and consulting experts. You can count on us to handle the legalities while you focus on your health and recovery.
