Boise Car Accident Lawyers
Aggressive Advocates for Injury Victims
Even the safest drivers can’t control road conditions, the elements,
or other motorists. Since the invention of the automobile, car accidents
have been unfortunate but inevitable occurrences. When these collisions
cause injury, the burden of medical bills, doctors’ visits, painful
recovery, and lost wages takes its toll, whether or not the victim was at fault.
At the Lowe Law Group, our Boise car accident attorneys take pride in representing
these individuals, navigating the complexities of their insurance claims
and litigation options, and helping them recover damages, so they can
focus on healing. We strive to bring you peace of mind on your road to recovery.

Steps to Take for the Strongest Case
Being involved in a car accident can be scary and overwhelming. Everything
happens so quickly, and it can be difficult to think rationally. While
you are under stress, you may not know what to say and what not to say.
One thing should be certain, however. The actions you take now can impact
how much you are able to get from your car accident case.
Following the steps below can strengthen your
personal injury claim and help your chances of collecting maximum compensation.
As best you can, after a serious collision, keep these steps in mind:
- Check on other people involved in the crash
- Report the accident, and request aid if needed
- Take photos/video of the scene and write down details
- Exchange contact and insurance information with other parties
- File a police report, either on the scene or immediately afterward
- Seek medical care right away, even if you have no visible injuries
- Save all medical bills, doctors’ findings, police reports, and related documents
- Do not speak to insurance adjusters—even your own—without an attorney
Enlist the services of an accident attorney directly following an accident,
while the details are still fresh. Lowe Law Group can assist you in gathering
evidence and information to build the strongest case possible.
Pursuing Compensation After a Car Accident
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, pursuing compensation
will be essential to move forward. Compensation does not make your pain
and suffering go away, but it does provide you with the ability to cater
to your injuries and seek medical care. It is also your method of getting
the justice you deserve since the insurance company that represents the
defendant will be responsible for your compensation. Our Boise car accident
lawyers can hold this party legally responsible for the damages you have endured.
Boise, Idaho holds to comparative fault laws. You can receive compensation
even if you had some degree of fault in the accident. If you were found
to be more than 50% at fault, you will not be entitled to any compensation.
What to Do After a Hit and Run
If you are the victim of a hit and run accident, which is when the at-fault
driver leaves the scene of the accident without taking the proper steps,
such as exchange contact and insurance information, the process will look
different for you.
First things first, make sure you are not the one who leaves the scene
of the accident, even if you are not at fault. You will need to exchange
information and ensure that all parties get the medical attention they need.
In the state of Idaho, anyone who is involved in a hit-and-run which results
in injury or death to a driver, or property damage, will face legal repercussions
and be persecuted as a criminal. As the victim, there are some steps you
can take to protect your rights:
Remain where you are, unless you can safely move your vehicle off to the
side of the road
Contact the police to file a report
Get medical attention for all injured parties

Statute of Limitations for Your Car Accident Claim
In the state of Idaho, every victim must file their injury claim within
a set amount of time. This is called the statute of limitations. It is
important to be aware of these laws to ensure that you file within the
allotted time frame. For a car accident claim, you will have two years
from the date of the accident to come forth with a claim. There are very
few exceptions to this time limit, which is why it is essential that you
begin working with an attorney immediately.
When Insurance Won’t Pay Up
As responsible drivers, we carry insurance to protect ourselves and others.
We expect that, when we are involved in a serious accident, our insurance
company and that other party will cover our damages. After all, isn’t
that what we pay for?
Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always have our best interests
at heart, and some will stubbornly deny claims or play tricks to avoid
paying. The Lowe Law Group sees through these sneaky games. Our Boise
car accident attorneys will advocate on your behalf, striving to get you
the compensation to which you are entitled.
For further peace of mind, we work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning
you won’t receive a bill from us unless we’re able to recover
damages for you. In the midst of dealing with the stress of an injury,
you don’t need an added financial burden. That’s our no-fee
