Meridian, ID - Injuries Reported in Car Crash at McMillan & Ten Mile Rds

Posted by Attorneys of Idaho | May 12, 2024 | 0 Comments

Meridian, ID (May 12, 2024) – Authorities on Tuesday morning reported that a detention deputy from the Bannock County Sheriff's Office was hospitalized after being involved in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 26.

According to the Bingham County Sheriff's Office, the collision happened around 5:00 a.m., close to Blackfoot. Authorities reported that the 42-year-old detention officer struck the driver's side of a 2016 gray Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was being driven by a 50-year-old Bingham County resident east on Highway 26. Officers added that the Jeep's driver was leaving a park-and-ride area at the junction of Highway 26 and 740 West and alleged that the Jeep driver failed to yield to the officer.

The officer was transferred by ground ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital in Blackfoot, while the other driver was assessed for injuries at the scene. However, no further details were released, and a portion of Highway 26 remained closed as investigators looked into the incident on Tuesday morning.

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

Meridian, ID - Injuries Reported in Car Crash at McMillan & Ten Mile Rds

Idaho citizens are entitled to full, fair compensation for all losses and expenses incurred due to a car accident caused by a negligent driver. This applies even to officers and firefighters injured and compensated by workers comp policies on the job. However, depending on the details, this may become particularly complicated and is nearly always more complex regarding multi-vehicle accidents involving multiple drivers.

Thankfully, our team at Attorneys of Idaho knows how to handle the aftermath of a crash. We know that receiving compensation will not change your experience or the pain of your injuries. However, securing recompense from a careless motorist via their insurance company or a legal claim is the best way to secure justice for what you've endured. Your Boise auto accident lawyers will stop at nothing to 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, and the assignment of fault is divided into percentages. If an assessment determines that you are fifty percent or more at fault, you will be ineligible for compensation. That said, regardless of your presumed fault percentage, it's essential to speak to a qualified attorney after a crash.
