Coeur d’Alene Personal Injury Lawyer
Has a serious injury left you dealing with unforeseen losses and expenses? Find out how to hold the responsible party accountable by consulting with a Coeur d’Alene injury attorney.
When you’ve been injured thanks to someone else’s poor decisions, you could be facing mountains of medical debt and other losses all at no fault of your own. This is an incredibly unjust position to be forced into, and getting compensated is rarely easy.
By working with a Coeur d’Alene personal injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates, you can get the full compensation you deserve and hold the negligent party responsible. No matter how you were injured, as long as someone else was to blame, we can help.
Your Injury Could Qualify for Financial Compensation
With few exceptions, almost any accident type could qualify you to seek financial compensation through a personal injury claim. Idaho is a comparative negligence state, however, so any fault that the other party can push onto you will reduce your compensation proportionately.
Serious Accidents Your Attorney Can Handle
This makes it critical to work with a Coeur d’Alene personal injury attorney who knows how to develop a powerful case for a variety of different accident types and injuries:
- Traffic Accidents – Cars, semi-trucks, motorcycles, buses . . . a crash with any of these vehicles could easily lead to serious injuries. The other driver, a business, or even a government agency could be responsible for causing the wreck.
- Work Accidents – While most on-the-job accidents will only qualify for work comp, if a third party or an egregiously negligent employer was to blame, your case might qualify for a personal injury claim.
- Product Liability – Defective products should never make it to market. If one made you ill or left you injured, you can hold the manufacturer to blame.
- Premises Liability – From slip-and-fall accidents at the store to dog bites at a neighbor’s house, if the property owner failed to correct a hazard and ensure your safety, you can hold him or her responsible.
All the Damages You Are Owed
Your attorney will make certain that the compensation you receive covers all of your damages and losses. You shouldn’t be satisfied with an inadequate settlement offer from the insurer, and we’ll make certain that you know the full value of your claim so that this won’t happen.
Your compensation needs to cover your future accident-related needs and not just the current damages. Additionally, you should also expect compensation for how your life has been negatively impacted, even if these losses don’t have an obvious monetary value.
Listed below are a few of the damages you might be able to include in your claim:
- Lost wages, income, and earning potential
- Medical expenses for medication, treatments, and equipment
- Transportation costs
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement and emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
How We’ll Help
To start, your personal injury lawyer at our firm will listen to your story. What happened to you? How has your injury affected your life? What do you hope to get out of your personal injury claim? Then, we’ll give you an honest assessment of your options and potential outcomes.
Once we’ve agreed on a strategy, your attorney will begin investigating your accident. This will involve gathering evidence, which could include anything from your medical records to police reports and photographs or video. We’ll gather every available piece of evidence to make sure you have the strongest possible case.
Then, we’ll start the paperwork. You may already be aware, but personal injury lawsuits involve mountains of paperwork—a task you shouldn’t have to handle when you’re recovering from a serious injury. That’s why we’ll handle it for you. We’ll draft your demand letter, file your suit with the courts, and otherwise dot all the I’s and cross the T’s.
From there, we’ll begin negotiations with the at-fault party and their attorney or the at-fault party’s insurance company. We’ll only do that, of course, if the other side is willing to negotiate. If we can reach an agreement that is favorable to you, we’ll settle your case and get you the compensation you need as quickly as possible.
There is a chance, however, that the other side isn’t going to negotiate in good faith. They may only offer an insultingly low settlement or refuse to make an offer at all. If that’s the case, then it will become necessary to take the other side to court. We’re completely prepared for that, and we never back down from a challenge.
In court, we’ll place our star litigators front and center to make sure your side of the story is not only heard but understood. Then, we’ll convince the judge or jury of the other parties’ negligence and your need for compensation. We’ll do everything in our power to get you the most compensation available.
