If you or a loved one was injured in an accident in Shoshone County Idaho, contact us today for a free and friendly consultation. In business since 1948, CCD Law represents victims injured or killed in serious accidents.
Shoshone County, better known locally as Silver Valley, got its name, of course, due to the massive amount of silver which was once mined here in this valley. In fact, over 1 Billion ounces were mined here. Shoshone was named after the Native American Shoshone Tribe. Silver Valley is in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains, east of CDA. Cities in Silver Valley include Kellogg, Mullan, Osburn, Pinehurst, Smelterville, Wallace and Wardner. There are also several unincorporated communities here such as Adair, Kingston, Silverton and Big Creek.
Auto accidents in Silver Valley
The accidents that make the news usually involve semi trucks and big rigs along I-90, but mostly because these involve heavy vehicles or high speed collisions. Of course, any vehicle can be involved in a collision here, especially when conditions are icy. In some accidents, cars and SUVs have been known to crash through or over the cement center dividers on I-90. 90 has really made a lot of progress here throughout the years although distracted or negligent drivers (and even drivers who simply made an error) still cause plenty of accidents, especially along the steep and windy areas between Mullan and Lookout Pass.
