- Traumatic brain injuries

Understanding the Law in Idaho
Statute of Limitations
If you are planning to file a case following a slip and fall accident in Idaho, it is important to understand the statute of limitations.
Per Idaho Statutes section 5-219, in instances where an injury was caused by someone else, individuals have two years to file a claim. For cases where an individual had their personal property damaged as a result of a slip and fall accident, the statute of limitations is three years, per Idaho Statutes section 5-218.
In Idaho, even if a jury finds that the plaintiff was partly to blame for the slip and fall accident, they may still be entitled to compensation from the other person (i.e. property owner). The amount of damages awarded will be reduced by an amount equal to the percentage of fault that’s determined to be theirs.
To give an example, in a case where a person’s damages are $20,000 and they are deemed 20% at fault, they will receive $16,000 (80% of the total damages).

“My son was recently injured in a serious auto accident. Brion was excellent to work with. He talked us through the process, kept us informed on the status of my son’s claim, and was very professional in all of our communications. He conveyed a caring, parental nature and truly cared about my son’s well-being, followed up with him often, and advocated for financial support for his extensive medical care. We were lucky to find an attorney with a “do the right thing” attitude and a solid moral character.” April, Boise
