Sorry to hear about your pain issues. It appears that Idaho’s time limit to file any lawsuit is 2 years, so you should talk with a local medical malpractice attorney ASAP to see if you have a case.

Back up the bus. I am very sorry to hear that you are going through this. But, long before considering a lawsuit, two big steps. First, retain an experienced personal injury attorney. Second, the attorney will have to find a medical expert to determine which symptoms are causally related to what negligence. Do not delay because these things take time.

I disagree with my colleagues. I hate turning away potential claims, but I am a human before I am a lawyer. Put your health first, not your potential claim. See a doctor who can help you with your condition, first, and see a lawyer, second. Do not delay in either as there is a statute of limitations, and it is fast approaching - two years from the cause of your injuries, and you must have filed your claim by then. But, regardless of whether you have a legal claim or not, you have a medical condition that needs treatment. A lawyer cannot help with that. Only a doctor can. Seeking treatment may lend to evidence that supports your claim. Such evidence is necessary to bring a claim; might as well see if you can establish that while you are getting treatment. Consider hiring counsel to help you though getting treatment while your claim is being evaluated. There are a few attorneys out there in Idaho who can do that for you. That way, you get treat,ent, and you can preserve your claim, if you have one. Good luck. Again, do not delay.
