Drunk Driver Hurts Pedestrian in Nampa, Idaho
Blackburn Law Blog By bburnlaw on 3/19/2015 9:53 AM


"NAMPA -- A 19-year-old woman was hospitalized Wednesday evening after she was hit by a pickup truck driven by a man police say was driving drunk.

Forty-six-year-old Francisco Lopez of Nampa was arrested and charged with aggravated DUI.

Nampa police received a report of a black Ford truck swerving and driving into oncoming traffic on Amity Road near Happy Valley Road just after 6 p.m. Wednesday. An officer spotted vehicle as they passed each other going opposite directions.

As the officer tried to turn around to follow the pickup, the driver turned down a side street. Police say that's when Lopez hit the Nampa woman, who was standing next to her vehicle in the 800 block of South Florence.

The officer was able to stop Lopez' truck in the same block. The woman was taken to a local hospital with injuries that did not appear life-threatening. Lopez was arrested after sho ...


Car vs. Semi Crashes Just Don't End Well
Blackburn Law Blog By bburnlaw on 2/25/2015 5:49 PM

From The Idaho Statesman:

"The driver of a semitrailer turning east onto East Kuna Road didn't see a car approaching from the south on Cloverdale Road at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Ada County sheriff's spokesman Patrick Orr said.

The driver of the car was hurt, but those injuries were not life-threatening. That person was taken to a local hospital, Orr said; their name was not publicly available Wednesday morning.

The semi driver — John Jasnsenbanbeek, 55, of Nampa — was cited for an improper left turn, Orr said.


Slightly earlier Wednesday, the driver of a Saturn Ion was injured when his vehicle rear-ended a semitrailer on I-84 near the Ten Mile Road exit west of Meridian.

According to Idaho State Police, Brandon Gibbish-Hood of Caldwell was eastbound on the freeway when he "was unable to slow for tra ...

Car Accidents in Boise or Meridian Idaho
Blackburn Law Blog By bburnlaw on 6/2/2014 1:50 PM

Car accidents often leave permanent scars, usually physical, though sometimes emotional.  Those physical scars, particularly on children and women, can be difficult to live with.  The emotional scars, of course, can also last a lifetime.

At Blackburn Law, I strive to make sure the insurance companies pay not only for the current value of the physical scarring, with any associated pain and suffering, but also future value for any scar revision surgery that may be required.  Even with a successful scar revision, there is no guarantee that a scar will be invisible.  Generally, there will always be some sort of residual scar.

As for the emotional scars, where people struggle to return to driving after being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, or particularly after the loss of a loved one in an accident, I recommend counseling, as do many medical providers, to help people cope with the changes in their live ...


How insurance companies settle cases
Blackburn Law Blog By bburnlaw on 5/29/2014 6:46 AM

You've probably heard about it.  Perhaps you've even experienced it.  A car accident happens, and within a day or so an insurance adjuster is at your door, offering you $500, $1,000 or even a little more if you will just sign a release agreement.  This unscrupulous behavior is common among some insurers in Idaho.  The reason they do this, of course, is to try and minimize their exposure to future liability.

At Blackburn Law, we recommend talking to an experienced personal injury lawyer before you sign any documents an insurance company presents to you, whether it is a release of liability or a release of private health information or some other document.  First things first, you need to take care of you!

If you have been injured, you need to get checked out to make sure your injuries are what you think they are.  I've handled many, many cases where an initial injury seems minor, only to find out ...


Read your car insurance policy carefully
Blackburn Law Blog By bburnlaw on 5/29/2014 6:32 AM

Insurance policies spell out your rights when a loss occurs such as a car accident.  Understanding your policy is critical to know the types of coverage available at the time a loss occurs.  Unfortunately, many policies are purchased and sold without the consumer really understanding what s/he has purchased.  All too often, I hear clients say they have "full coverage" only to find out the policy they purchased is really a minimal liability policy that doesn't cover even the most basic losses such as property damage to your own vehicle (collision), rental coverage, loss of income, or medical payments or PIP.

Talk to your agent carefully about the insurance coverages you need.  Remember, buying the least expensive policy you can find might be sufficient per Idaho law, but grossly insufficient to protect you from a civil judgment against you if you hurt someone badly in a car accident.  Think about it.  A visit to th ...
