Car Accidents

At Jane Gordon Law, I specialize in personal injury claims and settlements for car accidents. Early in my career, I worked as a defense attorney for large insurance companies. During this time, I realized my heart was in helping individuals receive the compensation they deserve and switched to personal injury law. From my previous job experience, I gained insider information on how to negotiate the maximum settlement for auto accident claims. 

I am passionate about fighting for the rights of car wreck victims. Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence, I am here with my extensive experience to fight for your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve. Your physical, emotional, and financial well-being are my top priorities.

Boise, Idaho Car Accident Attorney


After ensuring your safety and seeking necessary medical attention, it is important to gather information about the accident, including the names and contact details of all parties involved, as well as any witnesses. Document the scene with photographs, and notify your insurance company about the incident.

In Idaho, the legal principle of comparative negligence is applied to personal injury cases, including car wrecks. This means that even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Under this modified comparative negligence rule, your ability to recover damages is reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. However, as long as your degree of fault is determined to be less than 50%, you may still be eligible to recover compensation. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand the laws in your jurisdiction and assess the strength of your case.

In Idaho, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim arising from a car wreck is generally two years from the date of the accident. This means that you have two years from the date of the car wreck to initiate legal proceedings by filing a lawsuit. Failing to file within the specified time frame can result in the forfeiture of your right to seek compensation. Once the statute of limitations expires, the court is likely to dismiss your case, and you may be unable to recover damages for your injuries and losses.

The majority of personal injury cases, including car wreck cases, are settled before going to trial. Settlement negotiations are often the preferred approach as they can save time, costs, and potential uncertainties associated with a trial. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, your case may proceed to trial, and as an experienced personal injury attorney, I will advocate for your rights in court.

The value of your personal injury claim will depend on various factors, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the impact on your daily life. As an experienced personal injury attorney, I can assess your case, evaluate the damages, and help determine a fair and reasonable value for your claim.

Caution is recommended when dealing with insurance companies and their initial settlement offers. These offers are often much lower than what you may be entitled to receive. A free consultation with Jane Gordon Law can help you understand the true value of your case and negotiate for a fair settlement that adequately compensates you for your injuries and losses.

Hiring a personal injury attorney for car wrecks does not cost anything upfront. Jane Gordon Law uses a contingent fee model, meaning that her fee is a percentage of the settlement when you win. Please reach out for a free consultation to learn more.
