Workers’ Compensation Law

Idaho’s Workers’ Compensation Act states, “The welfare of the state depends upon its industries and even more upon the welfare of its wageworkers.” IC 72-201. Our firm is dedicated to helping Idaho’s wageworkers and their families.  

We know that workers’ compensation claims are complex, often requiring a deep understanding of Idaho Code Title 72, the Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure, the Judicial Rules of Practice and Procedure, and specific case law from the Idaho Supreme Court and Idaho Industrial Commission. Frequently, the use of expert witness testimony by physicians and vocational experts who specialize in these types of claims is required to successfully present your case.  We can help you navigate this process to maximize your odds of prevailing at a hearing.
