Auto Accidents, Pedestrian Accidents

Being involved in an automobile accident is stressful. If you or a loved one has also been injured in the car accident, your stress level has increased dramatically. Not only are you in pain, you're probably thinking about how you'll get to work, to doctor appointments, and who'll pick up the kids after school to say nothing about your recovery and how you will pay all the medical bills. On top of that, the other party's auto insurer is probably pressuring you to settle your auto insurance claim quickly.

What you need is an experienced auto accident attorney. You need an attorney who will watch out for your best interests - not the insurance company's. You want an attorney who will work to make sure your medical expenses are covered, your property damage claims are paid and that you are compensated for all of your losses.

While car accidents comprise a significant portion of personal injury and wrongful death claims, it would be wrong to think that they are either routine or simple to resolve. Your injury lawyers at Holzer Edwards, Chartered understand that these cases turn upon the "rules of the road," but also require the assistance of experts who can apply and explain the complex scientific and engineering principles necessary to unravel just how an accident occurred on the roadways of Idaho and who was at fault. Our lawyers also understand the medical, rehabilitative and economic principles which must be employed to properly evaluate such losses.

The experienced Idaho Injury Attorneys at Holzer Edwards, Chartered can answer all your questions and determine what compensation you deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident anywhere in Idaho, call or e-mail us today to schedule your free initial consultation.

Brain Injury Cases

Car wrecks, auto-pedestrian collisions and falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

The lives of the injured individual's family may be completely disrupted by traumatic brain injury. TBI can severely impact the behavior of people who look perfectly fine. Surprisingly, traumatic brain injury can occur even where the head shows no signs of striking another object. This is because sudden, unexpected, severe movement of the head and skull can unleash "shear forces" when the brain itself bangs against the inside of the skull. This is a well-recognized condition known in the medical literature as a "coup-contrecoup" injury.

TBI can result in alterations in one's physical, cognitive and social life. It adversely impacts job performance, especially where the brain injured person is employed in work which depends on highly developed executive skills. Few injuries are more frightening or require more sophisticated and skilled representation.

The trial lawyer who seeks full and fair compensation - the compensation necessary to "make whole" the victim of traumatic brain injury - must possess a detailed understanding of the neuropsychological, neurological, social and vocational implications of such an injury, and have the contacts with world class experts necessary to identify, evaluate and obtain the recovery necessary to facilitate ongoing treatment. It is not uncommon for an injured individual to require the services of a neurologist, neurosurgeon, physiatrist, vocational expert, life-care planner and neuropsychologist, as well as cognitive, physical, occupational and speech therapists. Unfortunately, recovery is often a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations for the injured individual and his or her family; thus, treatment is expensive. Of course, the clearest case of fault does not result in recovery unless sufficient insurance coverage exists - and is found. The lawyer with expertise in understanding insurance coverage has a distinct advantage in performing this important task.

Government Liability Claims

It is not at all uncommon for individuals to be injured by the negligence or intentional act of an employee or agent of a city, state or federal government. However, because of the unique nature of the government in our society, recovering money damages against a government entity can be extremely difficult. At a minimum it requires an experienced attorney with a good understanding of the rights the victim and obligations and liabilities of the government.

Insurance Disputes, and Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists Claims

One of the most frustrating and difficult things about being involved in an accident is dealing with the insurance company. Many of our clients confide in us that they feel ignored or taken advantage of when trying to get a reasonable settlement from these companies. We're here to help. Never Forget: Insurance companies are in business to make money. They are also under a contractual obligation to compensate you for losses covered by your insurance policy. The conflict between the profit motive and the contractual obligation sometimes leads companies to problems.

Because of their special relationship with their policyholders, insurance companies may be deemed to be held to a higher standard when handling insurance claims. Because of this special relationship, if an insurance company wrongly denies or delays paying your claim and the claim is covered by their policy, you may have a separate claim against the insurance company for a bad faith breach of their obligations under their insurance policy.

The Idaho Injury Attorneys at Holzer Edwards, Chartered have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies, claims procedures and successfully recovering money due under insurance policies. Our attorneys have also successfully recovered additional damages against insurance companies for bad faith breach of contract. If you or a loved one has had a claim denied by your insurance company - regardless of whether your claim is under an auto insurance policy, a life insurance policy, a disability insurance policy, a homeowners insurance policy, or any other insurance policy, call or e-mail us today to schedule your free initial consultation with an experienced bad faith and insurance claim attorney.

Motorcycle Accidents

It happens far too often. Motorists do not allow motorcyclists the rights of way and respect they are due. Motorcyclists can be overlooked by motorists when changing lanes or turning corners simply because of the size difference. Unfortunately, because the motorcyclist is exposed and vulnerable, what might otherwise be a minor fender bender between two automobiles, can lead to serious injury and even death for the biker.

Our Idaho motorcycle accident lawyers have the experience and the expertise to understand how the accident occurred, who is at fault and how to get the best possible settlement for the rider. If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, the Idaho Injury Attorneys at Holzer Edwards, Chartered can help. Call or e-mail us today to schedule your free initial consultation with an experienced accident and injury claim attorney.

Semi-truck and Tractor Trailer Accidents

Transporting goods over our nation's highways is increasing every year. Everything from small refrigerator trucks to 18-wheelers pulling one or two additional trailers are on the road constantly so products can be delivered in a timely manner. Naturally, with more travel come problems. Driver fatigue, overloaded trucks and speed at which they travel are just some of the causes that can lead to truck accidents.

If you think you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, call or e-mail us today to schedule your free initial consultation with an experienced truck accident attorney.

Watercraft Accidents

Watercraft includes everything from a personally owned boat to jet skis to company yachts, even cruise ships. Just like any other motorized vehicle, the operator of a watercraft is required to take every safety precaution while operating the watercraft. Some of the most common boating accidents include cases where passengers are thrown or fall from a boat and sustain injury including contact with the boat prop. Others include slip and falls on deck surfaces as well as negligent operation of the watercraft leading to injury.

Wrongful Death

The term "wrongful death" can best be described as the loss of life due to the carelessness or negligence of another. It can happen during a momentary lapse of attention or even an act of complete recklessness. Wrongful death can be caused by a single person or a corporation. Wrongful death may be caused by an auto accident, a defective product or even medical malpractice.
