Protecting Your Rights After a Car Accident

Car accidents are unsettling events that can disrupt your life in an instant. From minor fender benders to serious collisions, the aftermath of such incidents can be overwhelming, both physically and emotionally. At Hepworth Holzer, LLP, we understand the challenges you may face after a car accident and are dedicated to helping you navigate through the legal complexities to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Your Rights

In the aftermath of a car accident, understanding your rights is crucial. Idaho law provides protections for victims of negligence so that those injured due to someone else’s reckless or careless behavior are entitled to seek compensation. This compensation can cover medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. However, navigating the legal system to secure these rights requires knowledge and experience.

The Role of Legal Representation

Having experienced legal representation can make a significant difference in your case. At Hepworth Holzer, LLP, our team of attorneys focuses in personal injury law, including car accidents. We are committed to advocating for our clients’ rights and holding responsible parties accountable for their actions. From gathering evidence to negotiating with insurance companies or presenting your case in court, we are prepared to handle every aspect of your legal journey.

Building Your Case

Building a strong case begins with a thorough investigation. Our attorneys work diligently to gather evidence such as police reports, witness statements, medical records, and opinions if necessary. This comprehensive approach means that we have a clear understanding of the circumstances surrounding your accident and can effectively present your case to achieve the best possible outcome.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Dealing with insurance companies can be daunting, as their primary goal is to minimize payouts. Having Hepworth Holzer, LLP on your side means you have negotiators who understand the tactics insurers use and can counter them effectively. We strive to secure a fair settlement that covers all your current and future needs, sparing you from the stress of prolonged negotiations.

Litigation When Necessary

While many cases are resolved through negotiation, some may require litigation to achieve a just outcome. Our attorneys are seasoned litigators prepared to advocate for you in court if a fair settlement cannot be reached. We meticulously prepare for trial, so that your case is presented compellingly and persuasively before a judge and jury.

Compassionate Support Throughout

Beyond legal representation, we provide compassionate support to our clients during what can be a challenging time. We prioritize clear communication, keeping you informed about the progress of your case and answering any questions you may have along the way. Our goal is to alleviate your concerns so you can focus on your recovery while we handle the legal complexities on your behalf.

Seeking Comprehensive Compensation

After a car accident, the financial impact can extend far beyond immediate medical bills and vehicle repairs. You may face ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation costs, and even long-term disability. At Hepworth Holzer, LLP, we understand the importance of seeking comprehensive compensation that considers all these factors. We work with medical specialists and financial professionals to assess the full extent of your damages, so that your claim reflects the true impact of the accident on your life.

Statute of Limitations

In Idaho, there is a statute of limitations that restricts the time within which you can file a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident. This timeframe underscores the importance of seeking legal advice promptly. Waiting too long to pursue your claim can jeopardize your ability to recover compensation. Our attorneys are well-versed in these deadlines and will help ensure that your case is filed within the statutory limits, preserving your right to seek justice.

Contingency Fees

At Hepworth Holzer, LLP, we understand that the prospect of legal fees can be daunting, especially when you are already facing financial strain due to an accident. That’s why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. This means you pay nothing upfront and only owe legal fees if we successfully recover compensation on your behalf. Our fee is a percentage of the amount we obtain for you, meaning our interests are aligned with yours throughout the legal process.

Client-Centered Approach

We take pride in our client-centered approach, which emphasizes open communication and transparency. From your initial consultation to the resolution of your case, you can expect dedicated support and personalized attention from our team. We believe in building lasting relationships with our clients based on trust and mutual respect.

Trustworthy, honest, efficient, and effective - all words that describe John Edwards and his staff! Working with the team at Hepworth Holzer helped me focus on getting well and not on the financial worries of my situation.

Kathy Crowley

John Edwards and his staff are excellent. They took the time to explain the process completely and worked hard to ensure I would get the most out of my settlement. John is a very caring lawyer who cares more about his cleint then the possible gain from the end results. He was able to work with my health insurance company to lower their reimbursement to the lowest possible amount and even ensured I would be taken care of with future claims by waiving co-pays for my shoulder and neck injury.

Lee Morris

Mr Holzer has an above-and-beyond, do the right thing approach to life. He is caring and thorough. I’m grateful to know him and have his assistance!

Sarah Brown

Charlie Hepworth provided excellent legal services to my husband and I. In 2015, I was struck by a semi-truck on the connector and spent five weeks in the hospital. Charlie was referred to us by a friend and we were so fortunate to have him on board. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, highly experienced, and guided us every step of the way. We are pleased with the outcome and having Charlie on our team certainly made the long process of recovery a bit easier.

I am writing specifically about John Kluksdal. The work that he did for me was nothing but amazing. When it was time to go into my settlement hearing, he worked extremely hard and was able to get a justifiable settlement. He's great!
