What is wrongful death in Boise?

Wrongful death is a legal term that simply means that someone died as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence.

The majority of these cases arise from car or trucking accidents where the driver wasn’t paying attention or failed to follow the laws that help protect all drivers on our Idaho roads. Other wrongful death cases involve medical error, accidental shootings, pool drownings, as well as motorcycle and bicycle accidents.

There is typically insurance available for family members who lose their loved ones in these types of accidents.

Who can bring a wrongful death claim?

The following family members can bring a claim in Idaho following the passing of a loved one:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Stepchildren
  • Parents
  • Blood relatives and adopted brothers and sisters who are dependent upon the decedent for support or services

What is the time limit for filing a wrongful death case?

In most situations, Idaho law requires that a wrongful death case be filed with the court within 2 years from the incident that led to the person’s death. However, certain circumstances can actually shorten this 2-year time period, so it is important to speak with your Boise wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to find out the appropriate time frame (or “statute of limitations”) for the claim involving you and your family members.

Family members can read our Idaho Accident Book before making important decisions.

We literally wrote the book on injury and wrongful death claims. We make our Idaho Accident Book available for free so you and your loved ones can get valuable information and make important decisions in the comfort of your home.

What can be recovered under Idaho wrongful death laws?

A wrongful death settlement should include the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of financial support
  • Reasonable value of household services provided by the deceased
  • Loss of health insurance and other fringe benefits provided by the decedent’s employer
  • Compensation for the loss of “care, comfort, and society” of the deceased person
