Understanding Idaho Wrongful Death Laws
The term "wrongful death" refers to any death that was caused by negligence or a willful act of another. If your family member has died because of another's recklessness or error, you may have a valid claim to get compensation for your loss.
Although we fully understand that no amount of money can bring back a loved one, a monetary settlement can be used to:
- Offset the cost of final medical bills
- Provide for the future lost wages or loss of income
- Cover funeral expenses
- Compensate you for the loss of companionship, support and services

Accidental Death • Doctor Negligence • Motor Vehicle Accidents
In Idaho, a wrongful death or accidental death can occur from:
- Auto accidents and motorcycle wrecks
- Truck accidents
- Aviation accidents
- Construction accidents and other work-related accidents
- Medical malpractice and doctor or nurse negligence
- Nursing home or caregiver abuse
- Defective products
- Dangerous drugs and pharmaceuticals
- Other accidents or acts of negligence
Who is responsible? A wrongful death may occur if a babysitter fails to watch a child and the child wanders into a swimming pool and drowns. Other unfortunate casualties happen around an "attractive nuisance" like a construction site where kids are drawn to a pile of dirt and end up slipping and suffocating. In these unique cases, or in any other instance, it is important to discuss your options with an experienced, understanding and caring lawyer.
No matter the cause of your loved one's death, you want Carty Houst on your side to find answers, pursue justice and aggressively seek the compensation to which you are entitled for your loss.
