We regularly represent clients with traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries include concussions; a concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury. There is no such thing as a “mild” traumatic brain injury from the patient’s perspective, although doctors may label it as such to distinguish it from severe brain hemorrhage and the like. To sustain a traumatic brain injury and concussion, it is not necessary to actually strike one’s head. Motion of the brain in the head can injure the brain. Often, imaging scans (such as MRIs or CTs) are negative because the injury is now understood to happen at a cellular and nerve fiber level that current imaging technology cannot detect. Some patients may not recover for over a year and may have permanent disabilities.

We handle cases of serious dental malpractice. Yes, you can sue your dentist for malpractice in select circumstances. We carefully screen all potential cases of dental malpractice for merit and only advance cases involving strong liability and serious, permanent injury caused by dental negligence. Often, these involve third molar extractions wherein the patient’s lingual nerveor inferior alveolar nerve is severed or injured. This results in permanent nerve damage requiring attempted surgical repair by an oral surgeon. Often, patients are left with permanent facial and/or tongue numbness and pain. Dentists must use proper technique, use proper imaging, must refer certain cases to oral surgeon specialists, and obtain proper informed consent for the procedure. Contact Mahoney Law PLLC of Idaho for questions on dental malpractice, dentist malpractice, and dentist negligence.
If we as personal injury lawyers file a lawsuit seeking money damages for personal injuries, from a car accident for example, the at fault driver and his/her insurance company are allowed to conduct what is called "discovery." This simply means that the other side will send us written questions and requests that we give them information and documents about your case. Our state has formal written rules for this process, called the “Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure.” In discovery, the written questions are called "interrogatories," and the document requests are called "requests for production." The written interrogatories will ask for things such as the names of all witnesses, the names of your doctors, your employment background, and your health history, basically everything about your personal injury claim. The requests for production will ask for things that relate to the personal injury case such as your medical records and proof of any loss of income or wages. The other side, in a personal injury claim, may also get to take your "deposition," which is really a question-and-answer session under oath about your claim and your background with the lawyers for both sides there. We get to equally conduct discovery into the other side as well. Throughout this process, our personal injury attorneys will prepare you, guide you, and be right there by your side to protect your rights during what can understandably feel fairly invasive. Contact Mahoney Law PLLC, injury attorneys in Boise, Idaho, for any questions you have about personal injury claims, personal injury law, or personal injury settlements.

Mahoney Law PLLC is one of Idaho's go to firms for product liability personal injury lawsuits. Product liability involves representing consumers and their families when injured by a dangerous product. Under Idaho law, a product injury victim may prove that an unsafe product was unreasonable dangerous and defective, so-called "strict product liability." An injured consumer may also prove that a product manufacturer failed to reasonably warn of dangers. Sadly, we sometimes find in discovery that product manufacturers were on prior notice of serious dangers but failed to fix the problem, having faced past claims and lawsuits and having been aware of studies and data that give them knowledge of serious dangers. The profit motive, putting dollars over customers, can be a driving factor here. Mahoney Law, an Idaho based product liability law firm, offers free product liability case reviews and we work on a contingency fee. We have helped clients as a product liability attorney throughout Idaho obtain justice for serious injuries suffered from all types of unsafe products.
