Personal Injury: Legal Advice in the Idaho Area

Mar 1, 2008
There are a large range of legal issues that are covered by local Idaho lawyers. Each topic covers a large swath of legal information. This is why most lawyers concentrate on only a few areas of legal expertise, because the volume of work is so high.

A lot of attorney service is centered on divorce, wills and estates and personal injury. However Idaho State Bar operates a Lawyer Referral Service that can help you find a proper certified lawyer.

Discussing the Fee First

Try to get the subject of cost of the service discussed early in the game. Also, get all of the hard facts and figures down in writing. Keep in mind that advice or a simple page of written information given does have a fee associated with it usually.

This is not unusual as any tiny bit of knowledge and advice given to you even is the foundation of their service and is not usually free.

There are some points to discuss with your lawyer to know the expense and the expanse of difficulty before coming to a pay rate:

- The amount of time the attorney and assistants will need to tackle the situation brought to them
- The degree of difficulty
- Ask how their fee compares to others who offer the same service
- Estimate on how much a claim or settlement may be paid out
- Get their training and experience background
- Methodology of fee schedule

There are some good guidelines to follow in getting the lowest fee expense from your lawyer. Mainly you will want to keep the time spent with them limited. Also, make sure you give them the facts, all the way down to the dirtiest detail so nothing comes back to bit you.

Be organized. Get all the names, numbers the situation story written down to relay to them. Streamline everything and realize that you are paying for their expertise, not friendship or therapy session.

For instance, let's imagine that you are traveling through Northern Idaho and get into an accident in the city of Coeur d'Alene that injures the driver. The driver suffers a whiplash injury and decides to litigate.

After the accident and police paperwork is done, for legal reasons you would first want to search for a Coeur d'Alene personal injury lawyer. There are jurisdictional differences in law, so even if you are not from that area, it would be wise to choose an attorney from that area.

With that in mind, make sure that all information about the accident is relayed to your attorney properly with all the other steps as mentioned above.
