Cheney WA Injuries and Car Accidents
Cheney has around 12,000 residents but the population drastically increases when classes are in session at Eastern Washington University.
Automobile accidents most often occur during commuting in and out of Cheney. Many of EWU’s students reside in Spokane and drive in for classes, and many of Cheney’s residents commute to Spokane for work. Most people take Route 904 and Interstate 90 although some prefer Spokane Cheney Road. While the most severe accidents occur on these roads due to higher speeds, serious injuries can and do result from accidents all over Cheney, even in grocery store parking lots.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I sue my employer for an injury at work?
If you get hurt at work, in most cases the Department of Labor and Industries will pay you benefits and you won’t be able to sue your employer for those. However, if the reason you are hurt is because of someone else besides your employer—delivery driver, failed safety equipment—then you might have a third-party lawsuit against that person or company.
What if I was partially to blame for my injury?
If you feel that you did something that contributed to your injury, know that Washington state has a comparative negligence system. This means that the fault can be divided by percentage among all parties that have some fault. Each person will pay for all injuries by the percentage they were at fault.
Do I have to go to court to get compensation for my injury?
In most cases, no. Only a small percentage of cases actually go to court to decide a personal injury case. Before you file, your attorney will contact the insurance company and both parties will work toward a settlement. If no settlement is reached, then a lawsuit will have to be filed. However, there are still several chances to settle right up to the first trial date.
