Boise Work Injury Attorneys
Workers' Compensation and Third Party Lawsuits
A serious or permanent injury from a workplace accident automatically entitles one to employer-paid benefits, including free medical care, lost wages and a payout for lasting disability or disfigurement. But employers and insurers can be hostile to workers' compensation claims.
— You may need legal counsel to protect your rights or maximize a lump sum settlement.
— You may also have claims against other parties for a work-related injury. If you are permanently disabled from your job, you cannot afford to leave that money on the table.
Idaho Workplace Injuries Lawyers
The experienced attorneys of Houst Law Office PLLC in Boise can determine, in a free case evaluation, if you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against a third party. We will also consult with or refer you to an attorney who specializes in Idaho workers' comp law to ensure you receive all entitled benefits.
We have represented construction workers, commercial drivers, medical workers, delivery personnel and employees injured in a broad spectrum of occupations. We have won compensation for catastrophic injuries, such as brain damage, paralysis, loss of limb or severe burns, and for work-related wrongful death.
Third Party Claims From On-the-Job Accidents
Partners Stuart Carty and Henry "Chip" Houst draw on 60 years of experience in plaintiff litigation and insurance defense to get full value for your disabling accident. We work to identify any other entities who might be held liable for your injuries:
- Manufacturers responsible for machinery accidents
- Property owners responsible for slip-and-falls or other safety hazards
- Motorists who caused a crash while you were driving in a work-related capacity
- Construction subcontractors on the same job site who were negligent
In a personal injury lawsuit, you are entitled to damages, such as pain and suffering, that are not covered by workers' compensation. There are no caps on projected lost income or future medical costs. And your extent of disability is gauged by independent medical specialists, not your employer's "preferred" doctors.
