TOP 7 FACTORS THAT AFFECT CAR ACCIDENT CLAIMS

Distracted Driving

According to TeenSafe, 9 of all the daily fatal auto accidents are related to distracted driving. It’s important to keep an eye out for distracted drivers and stay away from them. Keep an eye out for any drivers looking down at their phones, lane-drifting, or driving at unusually slow or fast speeds.

DUI

If the driver who caused your auto accident in Idaho was under the influence while behind the wheel, then he may face serious repercussions for his actions and be liable for any injuries which you suffer.

Speeding

If you were injured by someone who was speeding at the time of your accident, then the driver may be held liable for any injuries his or her speeding caused you. Proving a driver was speeding at the time of an accident can be difficult, but a personal injury attorney can help with this process.

Uninsured Motorist

Although insurance is mandatory when operating a vehicle, some drivers nevertheless choose to drive while uninsured. If you are injured by an uninsured driver, recovering compensation for your injuries can be a difficult process. Your own insurance policy will cover your injuries, and if your treatments are more expensive than the policy limits, then you may have difficulty recovering damages.

Head-on Collision

Head-on collisions can be particularly devastating in terms of injuries and fatalities. Determining the location of each vehicle is crucial in proving fault in a head-on collision; if the other driver drifted into your lane, then you may be able to recover for injuries he or she caused you.

Multiple Vehicle

Many accidents involve more than two vehicles, which can make proving fault a nightmare. If you have been injured in a multi-vehicle accident, Litster Frost's experienced Boise car accident attorneys can help you sort out the many factors involved in these accidents and help you win the compensation you deserve.

Single Vehicle

Even if no other vehicles were involved in your accident, it’s not hopeless. Were you forced to maneuver out of the way when another driver made a risky move? Did badly maintained roads or a negligent road worker contribute to unsafe conditions that led to your accident? "

* While these are not the only types of accidents that a driver can face on the road, they are very common and often result in serious injury.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT?

01

Speak With the Police

You want to make sure when law enforcement arrives, you give them your side of the story without implying that you were at fault for the incident.


You should always file a report with the police following a motor vehicle accident in Idaho.

Seek Medical Treatment

You may thing receiving medical treatment could decrease the amount of compensation you could recover for your injuries. However, being able to provide detailed costs of your treatment and other bills is important when working with our Boise car accident attorneys.

03

Gather Evidence

When filing a car accident claim, your attorney will need various types of evidence to help support your claim.

  • A witness. This is someone who saw how the accident occurred.
