Recovering Compensation For Catastrophic Personal Injuries And Wrongful Death In Idaho
An accident that leads to a serious and catastrophic injury is traumatic and life-changing. It is even more tragic when a person wrongfully dies because of someone else’s mistake, negligence or wrongdoing.
A native of Idaho, I am personal injury attorney Matthew Gunn and founder of the Law Offices of Matthew G. Gunn in Boise. Nothing can undo a harrowing accident or bring back a loved one, but I take pride in helping those recover the monetary compensation they need to pay for surgeries, medical expenses, rehabilitation and more.
Serious Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
Car crashes and motor vehicle collisions happen every day in Idaho. Most are frustrating fender benders, but, sometimes, a serious accident leads to traumatic injuries such as disfigurement, losses of limbs, permanent brain injuries or serious burns. These sorts of accidents leave behind permanent damage, resulting in infinite and ongoing medical bills. I help those injured in a wide range of auto accidents including:
- Commercial vehicle and truck collisions
- Pedestrians and bicyclists injured from reckless drivers
If you or someone you love is suffering from serious and life-altering injuries from an auto accident, I can help. I frequently work with insurance companies to secure a proper settlement for medical and other pertinent care. If negotiations do not result in a settlement that is fair for my clients, I will not hesitate to go to court and litigate your case.
Wrongful Death Actions In Idaho
In the state of Idaho, if a person dies because someone else commits a wrongful act or is negligent, the heirs of the deceased can file a lawsuit, known as a wrongful death suit, on their behalf. Recoverable damages in a wrongful death lawsuit often include but are not limited to the following:
- Medical expenses that were incurred because of the accident injuries or illness
- Loss of financial support that the decedent provided
- Money to compensate for the loss of household services that the decedent provided
- Funeral and burial expenses
In a Idaho wrongful death case, there is no limits to the amount of damages a deceased’s can recover. As such, I always fight for the maximum compensation families deserve.
Third-Party Liability Claims
In addition, I represent employees who have been injured at work from the negligent actions of an outside entity or employee. I frequently assist with third-party claims outside the workers’ compensation system in order to maximum the damages the employee can receive.
Such examples include employees who have suffered injury from defective machinery or those who are injured in an auto accident from at at-fault driver while driving on-the-job.
