Boise, ID – Injuries Reported in Car Crash on I-84 at MP 47.5

Posted by Attorneys of Idaho | Jun 13, 2024 | 0 Comments

Boise, ID (June 13, 2024) – According to police, a vehicle crash with injuries took place in the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 at around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 12.

Troopers with the Idaho State Police responded to the site of the incident, just before milepost 47.5 on I-84, where a multi-vehicle crash and apparent fire were blocking the right-most westbound lanes. It was not immediately clear how many vehicles were involved in the collision, and the total number of injured victims was also unknown. No other updates concerning the wreck were released, but an investigation is ongoing. The ISP asked any witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their complete recovery.

Car Accidents in Idaho

Idaho is an at-fault state, which means that individuals who have been injured have the right to file a claim against the party responsible for the damage. That said, liability due to carelessness or negligence must be established to secure compensation, and without the assistance of an attorney, establishing liability (or legal responsibility for an accident) can be a difficult task. 

Human error or negligence, such as speeding, driver distraction, or getting behind the wheel while under the influence, are the primary causes of the majority of auto accidents. An attorney can assist you in substantiating your assertion that the other driver was negligent. It is imperative that you demonstrate that the other party's negligence was the direct cause of your injuries. A lawyer will be able to guide you through the processes and procedures involved in negotiating with these companies or filing a claim for damages. 

Our team at Attorneys of Idaho knows how to handle the aftermath of a crash. We are aware that receiving compensation will not erase the reality of the car accident that occurred or heal your injuries. Nonetheless, we can help you secure justice and ensure that you are fairly compensated by the insurance company representing the liable party in your vehicle collision. Moreover, your Boise auto accident lawyers will also ensure you can negotiate and legally seek compensation for the harm inflicted upon you should you need to do so.

Comparative fault laws in Boise permit you to receive compensation even if you contributed in some way to the accident. The data is decomposed into percentages. A portion of the liability for the automobile collision must be shifted to you if your culpability falls below 50%. Although it may be diminished if it exceeds 0%, you will still obtain something. If an assessment determines that you are fifty percent or more at fault, you will be ineligible for compensation.
