About Aaron Crary
Aaron Crary is a personal injury attorney with Crary, Clark, Domanico, & Chuang, P.S., a Spokane law firm.
How Aaron became a lawyer. Aaron has always had a desire to help people in need or those in a difficult situation.
“Watching attorneys solve problems made me want to be an attorney. It’s a profession that revolves around helping people.”
Why Aaron chose to practice personal injury law. Aaron wanted to work in an accessible niche.
“Attorneys can be expensive and inaccessible to a lot of people. In personal injury, we’re able to take on cases on a contingency fee basis. Because of that, we’re able to help people who otherwise may not have the financial means to hire an attorney.”
Aaron’s philosophy for personal injury law. “My philosophy is to make sure I can add value to every case I take on. I always tell people that not everyone needs a lawyer when they get injured. If it makes sense for me to jump on board, and can add value, I explain that to them.”
If he’s approached by someone who just needs guidance to resolve their claim without the need to hire an attorney, he’s candid with them.
“I am happy to help them with that process.”
What drew Aaron to Crary, Clark, Domanico, & Chuang, P.S. Aaron’s father joined the firm in 1980. He joined in order to work with his father.
“There are five total attorneys here and we have a great family atmosphere. We work together on cases, bounce ideas off each other, and get along great. It is a great environment.”
Aaron in the community. Aaron and his fellow attorneys at the firm sponsor numerous activities, including a local college essay scholarship and the Spokane County Fair . He is a member of numerous Spokane County Bar organizations, and prides himself on being involved with the local community.
Aaron outside the office. “All of us love the outdoors. We love to hunt, spend time on the lakes, and hike in the mountains. We are also big sports fans, with a specific emphasis on Gonzaga basketball. We coach numerous sport’s teams that our children play on.”

What Is a Personal Injury Attorney in Spokane?
As you go about your daily routine, it's likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A personal injury lawyer in Spokane represents those who have been injured because of another party's carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed Spokane personal injury attorney can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court.
Although personal injury attorneys in Spokane deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes three broad types of cases personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.
Traffic Accident Injury Cases
Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.
Premises Liability Injury Cases
In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.
Product Liability Injury Cases
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaints of injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don't warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product's chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.
