Each year, millions of people in the United States suffer the devastating effects of an injury. While some injuries can be relatively minor, many accidents end up causing excruciating pain that can last months, years, or even a lifetime. The pain doesn’t stop on a physical level, however–from exorbitant and ongoing medical costs and loss of income to emotional pain and suffering, the long-term costs of a personal injury can be substantial.
If you have been injured by someone’s carelessness, then you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering through a personal injury lawsuit. Don’t try to bring an action on your own, however–your main focus should be healing to the fullest extent possible. The skilled attorneys at Litster Frost look out for your rights and needs and work tirelessly on behalf of our clients. We take the necessary steps to protect your rights and avoid potentially devastating consequences that can take a toll on your life for years to come. Having someone who is looking out for your best interests is one of the most important steps you can take in order to secure a more stable future.
According to the Department of Transportation, more than 35,000 people die each year on this nation’s highways. Hundreds of thousands more are injured or disabled as a result of automobile crashes. Distracted driving, aggressive driving, and driving under the influence all play significant roles in traffic accidents in Idaho, along with non-driver-related causes like bad weather, poor road conditions, and road obstructions and hazards.
Even a fender-bender can result in thousands of dollars in medical costs and lost income. Having a skilled personal injury attorney with the experience needed to protect your rights is an important part of making sure you receive the compensation you need to cover your accident-related expenses.
Pocatello is a great place to ride with plenty of picturesque country and mountain roads. But every year there are fatal and non-fatal motorcycle accidents in this area.
In Idaho, motorcycle crashes account for over 11% of all vehicle crashes across the state resulting in significant injuries and disability. If you’ve been injured, working with an experienced motorcycle attorney ensures that your rights are protected right from the beginning.
Considering the immense weight of many of today’s commercial trucks, it’s no surprise a truck accident can cause a substantial amount of damage and injury. If you are the victim of a commercial truck accident, multiple parties may be responsible, including:
- The driver
- The trucking company
- The company that contracts out the work
Determining which parties are responsible–as well as how much burden of responsibility each party shares–can be very complicated. Having an experienced truck accident attorney working on your behalf is vitally important. Moreover, while trucking companies and contractors have typically had significant insurance policies, those companies are equipped with dedicated legal teams whose primary goal is to limit their losses. If you have been injured by a truck driver’s negligence, you need a lawyer on your side who is working hard to represent your case and to aggressively protect your rights.
Staying healthy is a top priority for everyone, and getting prompt, appropriate medical care is essential. Still, research shows medical errors are a leading cause of injury and death in the United States, which means medical negligence is a lot more common than we’d like to believe.
Proving a claim of medical malpractice is about more than showing something “went wrong;” you also need to prove the healthcare provider was negligent and failed to adhere to a normal standard of care. This is easier said than done. Lister Frost’s team of attorneys has a long history of successfully handling medical malpractice cases for clients throughout Pocatello and surrounding areas. Scheduling a personal consultation is the first step toward making sure your rights are protected.
Workers’ compensation insurance is intended to protect you if you become injured on the job, covering medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses associated with your injury. Even though these policies are set up to protect workers, they don’t always “work” the way they should.
As with any other type of insurance, workers’ compensation insurance companies are focused on their own bottom line, which means it isn’t uncommon to have problems when it comes time to collect on a policy. If you are facing problems with your workers’ compensation claim, or if you feel pressured by your employer to “sign off” on a claim, it’s time to speak with an attorney. At Lister Frost, we help employees throughout the Pocatello region protect their rights and support their workers’ compensation claims. Schedule a consultation today to learn how we can help you.

Comparative Negligence Rule
COMPARATIVE NEGLIGENCE RULE
Idaho follows the comparative negligence rule, which means that a court will look at both parties’ actions and level of fault in the case of a motorcycle accident.
Even if you were both driving irresponsibly, if the other driver was driving more carelessly, then you may still have a case. It’s important to recognize, however, that any fault on your part will limit the amount of damages which you can receive.
