Full Spectrum Idaho Personal Injury Law
The Litster Frost legal team has years of experience fighting for clients in virtually every kind of injury case. Some of the most common are:
According to the Idaho Transportation Department there were 22,134 car crashes in 2014 alone, resulting in 175 fatalities. Another report shows that 52 percent of Idaho’s accidents in 2015 involved aggressive driving. In other words, the majority of accidents in Idaho involved someone who wasn’t driving safely.
If you were injured in an automobile accident that wasn’t your fault, then it is important to learn your rights and responsibilities. A number of factors play into whether the other party was at fault and whether he or she owes you compensation. Such factors include road hazards, driver negligence or tailgating, driving under the influence, ignoring red lights or stop signs, and speeding. These aren’t the only factors, but if the other driver was driving negligently or broke the law, then you may have a personal injury case against that driver. If you do, it is important to bring the action correctly and quickly. This process includes hiring an experienced car accident attorney early on.
According to the Idaho Statesman, motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle are a common occurrence in Idaho. If you were injured at the hands of another driver while you were riding your motorcycle, then you may have a case. Don’t assume, however, that you don’t have a case simply because another vehicle was not involved. According to the Idaho Transportation Department, more than half of all fatal motorcycle crashes do not involve another vehicle. If a road or construction zone was unsafe and caused injury to you, then you may be eligible for compensation. Talk to one of our motorcycle accident attorneys or click here to learn more.
Tractor Trailer Accidents
Truck accidents can cause horrible injury, property damage, and fatality. The Idaho Transportation Department reported that single-trailer semi trucks caused 8 fatal crashes, 158 crashes with injuries, and 492 crashes resulting in automobile damage in 2014 alone. Regular trucks, tractors, and double- and triple-trailers also cause a significant number of accidents.
If you were in an accident involving a tractor trailer, the damage can be extreme. There is hope, however, as you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. A personal injury attorney who is experienced with automobile accidents can help you wade through vehicle laws and build a solid case to gain the compensation to which you are entitled.

A vast number of different types of medical malpractice claims exist, making this type of personal injury case extremely confusing to a layperson. Unfortunately, when you don’t understand medical malpractice law, you are generally far less likely to build a case that is strong enough to be awarded compensation.
The nature of your medical malpractice case changes considerably based on who was at fault, what their role was in your case, and more. This is why it is critical to understand the difference between doctor malpractice, hospital malpractice, labor and delivery malpractice, and dozens of other types. Medical malpractice attorneys at Litster Frost have the experience to ascertain the likelihood of a malpractice claim or lawsuit being successful.
Property owners that don’t maintain their premises–and even those who do–are liable for injuries which occur on their property. If you were injured on a property that was covered in ice or snow, was significantly uneven or steep, or was in any way dangerous, then you may have a case against the property owner. Slip-and-fall accidents are also a serious problem in indoor locations, especially for elderly people. If you are renting a space or were visiting a property and fell as a result of unsafe conditions, then a personal injury attorney may be able to help you recover the medical expenses incurred so that you can afford the treatment you need and focus on recovery.
Workers’ compensation coverage is required for most companies by Idaho law and managed by the State of Idaho Industrial Commission. If you were injured at work, then you have a right to workers’ compensation to help cover your medical expenses, physical therapy, time and wages lost from work, insurance copays, out-of-pocket expenses and more.
Injuries at work can come in many forms. While you might think of common injuries being slips, falls, crashes, electrocutions, lost limbs and other trauma as the basis of most workers’ compensation claims, less traumatic injuries also qualify for assistance. If you suffer from back pain as a result of constant bending, lifting, or pushing in your job, for instance, then you might qualify for a claim. The same applies with carpal tunnel syndrome, which is also covered by workers’ compensation. The bottom line is that even if your injury is chronic rather than temporary, it is worth looking into to see if you can build a case by talking to a workers’ compensation attorney.
Brain and Spinal Injury
Injuries to the brain and spine are typically complex and often carry potential long term or even permanent consequences. Cases involving brain or spine injuries need to be handled with care. Often, the long term effects of these injuries are not easily predicted nor do they manifest right away. Litster Frost’s team has the experience to strategize in such a way that the full implications of serious injuries are never ignored.
Wrongful death lawsuits or accidental death lawsuits happen when a family member looses their lives due to someone else’s actions or negligence, reckless driving, medical malpractice or complications from a botched surgery. Wrongful death lawsuits can be pursued by parents, children or spouses of the deceased. Litster Frost has successfully represented many wrongful death suits in Idaho.
Bad Drugs and Defective Medical Products
Every year thousands are harmed due to the failure of a medical device, or because of damaging and unintended effects of prescription drugs. When the cause of injury is traced back to manufacturer of the drug or device, then an attorney with experience in product liability litigation can pursue legal action. Litster Frost regularly handles such cases for Idaho residents and can advise you on your potential case. Learn more on our bad drug and defective medical products page.
Nursing Home Abuse
Neglect has become a serious issue in elder care facilities. Litster Frost helps families who’s parents or grandparents have suffered due to the negligence or even abuse of nursing home care staff. Learn more about how an attorney for nursing home cases can help you.

We aggressively defend the interests of people who have been unlawfully singled out in the workplace. No Idaho resident should have to experience such behavior and we’re here to see that when they do, they have our full attention and dedication to defending their legal rights.
