Newport is a small town an hour North of us sitting on the border of Idaho. Injuries are rare here but unfortunately, they do occur. You could be injured in Newport while traveling through, or a Newport resident injured as far away as Spokane. If your injuries are the fault of someone else, you may have a hard time collecting what is owed to you by an insurer. That is where we come in. We help clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation available to them for their injury claims.
Injuries in Newport
Most people who have sustained an injury in or around areas such as Pend Oreille Valley, Priest River or Priest Lake end up at Newport Hospital & Health Services (NHHS). People with serious traumatic injuries are sometimes transported to Providence Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. While people can be injured at construction sites, on the job or in dog attacks, we typically hear about injuries from car accidents or injuries on the Pend Oreille River, technically in Oldtown.
Some of our areas of practice include, but are not limited to:

- Bicycle accidents

- Car accidents
- Construction accidents

Frequently Asked Questions
How much is my personal injury claim worth?
The biggest factors are the extent of the injury and the cap on the insurance policy. If you are only slightly injured and there is a minimal impact on your life, then your award or settlement will be smaller. If your injury is severe and its impact considerable, then you might “cap out” against the policy amount. A good personal injury attorney knows how to look for additional sources of compensation if there is a cap.
If I’m a passenger and my driver caused the accident, can I sue my driver?
Washington personal injury allows anyone injured by another person’s negligence to seek compensation from that person—even if they were the driver in the same car. In most cases, you won’t have to sue because the case will likely settle.
How do I prove that I wasn’t negligent?
Insurance companies will often try to put the blame on the injured person so they won’t have to pay for their client. However, the law says that the person who was negligent will have to pay for the damages. To prove that you were negligent, the other driver has to have evidence that you acted without due caution under the circumstances, and as a result of those actions, you were injured.
