I Was Injured in an Accident. What Should I Do?
As soon as you can after you are involved in an accident, seek medical attention for your injury. Do this even if your injury appears to be minor or even nonexistent. Sometimes, seemingly minor injuries can become much more serious if they are left untreated. Only after you have received medical care should you work with a personal injury attorney to file and pursue a personal injury claim.
It is important that you do not wait too long to start working with an attorney, though. In Idaho, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the date of your accident. This means that after you are injured, you have two years to file your claim if you intent to recover monetary compensation.
The compensation you receive through your claim may be used to cover your medical bills, your lost wages due to taking time from work to recover, and your intangible needs during your recovery. This final category is known as “pain and suffering” and can refer to anything from topical ointment to pain relievers to a mobility aid.
