Do you or a loved one have a worker’s compensation issue in Twin Falls, Idaho? It’s not as uncommon as you may think. When an employee sustains an injury or develops an illness in the line of duty, their employer may be required to cover:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Vocational training in order for the employee to be placed in a position that accommodates their injury or illness, if it is permanent

Workers’ Compensation Claims
When you are injured or have been exposed to a disease on the job, you should get immediate emergency medical care if applicable. Any emergency care provider is fine. However, Idaho does have laws in place that require you to use an employer’s designated medical care provider for ongoing treatment.
The insurance company for your employer will either accept or deny the claim. If the claim is denied, you can appeal through a formal hearing with the Idaho Industrial Commission. You may also want to talk with an attorney.
Workers’ compensation laws as well as the way that claims are administered by carriers can be very complex. Having an experienced team on your side can make a significant difference in the way your case is handled. Workers’ compensation claims can be tricky and take a lot of time proving you are eligible for benefits. This causes frustration and places a burden on financial resources that you may not be able to afford.

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.
