If you’ve been involved in an accident or suffered an injury, you might have more questions than answers. Should you file an insurance claim? What about a lawsuit? How can you tell whether someone else might be legally at fault for causing your injuries? And if you do have a legitimate case, what can you expect in terms of compensation and timeline to settlement? Do I give a statement to the insurance company? What are my rights? What deadlines do I have to watch out for?
Curtis & Porter, P.A. is here to help. We’ll help you understand every aspect of the insurance settlement or personal injury lawsuit process, plus in-depth information on everything from motor vehicle accidents, to dog bites and slip-and-fall cases. You can educate yourself on every aspect of your claim, or just get a general sense of what to expect.
We’ve got everything you need to get your case started, get fair compensation, and get on with your life.
Don’t let the other driver’s insurance adjuster tell you how much your case is worth. Get legal help on your side. You’re entitled to more than you think. Research shows that persons who hire an attorney receive, on average, more than three times more money than those who represent themselves!
Obviously, insurance companies handle claims on a daily basis, and they are well-staffed with attorneys. To level the playing field, you need an attorney of your own.
We've handled hundreds of accident and injury cases and collected millions of dollars from insurance companies for accident victims. Our attorneys and staff have approximately 90 years of combined experience involving accident and injury claims with insurance companies. Studies have shown that victims who hire an attorney obtain, on average, approximately 3.5 times more than those claimants who are not represented. We deal with the insurance companies, help facilitate your medical treatment and resolve property damage, etc., so all you need to focus on is getting better. Most likely, if you hire us, you will obtain a better result, with less hassle, than if you tried to represent yourself.
We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau! See http://www.bbb.org/boise/business-reviews/attorneys-and-lawyers/curtis-porter-law-offices-pa-in-idaho-falls-id-1000007787 for more information.

If we don't win, there's no charge
We handle injury cases on a contingency-fee basis. That means that there is no fee unless and until, we win. You have nothing to lose - and potentially much to gain.
Discuss your case with one of our attorneys, without obligation.
Home or hospital appointments
Oftentimes a person who is seriously injured needs immediate legal help, but is unable to travel. Our attorneys make home and hospital appointments to accommodate injured persons and their families.
Help with medical bills prior to settlement
We work with medical providers and insurance companies so that you don't have to settle before you are treated, and to help you avoid having bills go into collections.
Good, reasonable settlements - usually without lawsuits
We settle a high percentage of our injury cases out-of-court through the insurance company. We will litigate, however, if necessary (as our opponents know) to obtain a fair, just result.
We’ll help you determine the actual worth of your case. You’re entitled to far more than just your current medical bills in settlement, including wage loss, loss of use of your vehicle during repairs, general damages for pain, suffering and inconvenience, and future medical bills.
"I was injured in a car accident. Before seeing Curtis & Porter, the insurance company's 'top' offer to settle my case was $17,500. Barely a month after I retained Curtis & Porter, my case settled for $30,000."
