When Does A Personal Injury Require Consultation With An Attorney

Any type of accident that was caused by another person (or entity – like a company) and results in personal physical or psychological injury should be considered serious and the victim should consult with a personal injury attorney right away. In Idaho, Baker & Harris Law are specialists in worker’s compensation law as well as personal injury law – so if the accident happens at work, we can help.

When Should I Hire An Attorney To Help Me?

Immediately following an injury, you should schedule a consultation with a qualified personal injury attorney. At Baker & Harris, you are not charged a fee until compensation is awarded. During your consultation, we can help you determine how likely you are to win a case and the maximum award you might receive. But we will not charge you until we help you receive the compensation you deserve.

What Should I Do First?

Personal injury claims have many steps that are required to successfully win a case. The accident and injuries must be reported and the victim has to receive medical treatment. These steps help create a timeline of the accident and injuries sustained. Medical documents prove injury and the sooner the treatment happens, the more it can be proven to be a result of the accident. Time stamping information is crucial in proving that the injury happened, where it happened, and how debilitating it is.

You will also need to document why the accident happened. Your opposition’s lawyer will create a case trying to prove that the accident was not a fault of his clients, but due to your own negligence or someone else’s. Every bit of detail, witness statements, and documentation can help you win your case. There is no such thing as too much information.

In Workman’s Comp cases, the injury should be reported to your place of employment immediately. There are some stipulations with workman’s comp that actually will allow you to receive benefits if an injury is the result of your own negligence – however, the accident must be an accident. Not a result of intoxication or purposely not following the rules and safety policies.
