Medical Lake and Personal Injuries
Transportation plays an important role in the lives of the over 5,000 Medical Lake residents. Many work at the nearby Eastern State Hospital and commute there daily. Others work in Spokane and take Highway 902 a couple miles to I-90 and drive the 15 miles into the city every day.
Medical Lake residents also take advantage of four large lakes nearby for fishing, swimming or even diving off Red Rock into Medical Lake. Unfortunately, many Medical Lake drivers get into accidents and become injured when traveling to all these destinations.
Choosing the Right Attorney
Medical Lake residents have trusted the lawyers at CCD Law for over 70 years. When they have had a need for legal representation, they looked to the experience and skill of the attorneys at CCD Law.

Frequently Asked Questions
If my spouse died in a car accident, can I receive compensation?
You can seek compensation for a wrongful death if you can prove that the other driver negligently caused the death of your loved on. The damages are determined by the impact of the losses you suffer because of your spouse’s death. Anyone who was a close family member or was financially dependent on the deceased can seek wrongful death compensation.
What if the Insurance company is saying that the accident was my fault?
This is a common tactic by insurance companies. Instead of settling the claim fairly, they will try to take the blame off their insured. The best way to combat this is to get an attorney who has experience going up against insurance companies and knows how to get you the maximum compensation allowed by law.
Do I have to pay back my medical bills if I get a settlement for my personal injury?
Any funds paid by your medical insurance company by law has to be paid back. However, in most cases, the case will settle out of court, and your attorney can make an agreement with the insurance company to make the settlement fair to the victim.
