Resources that help injured people after an Arlington accident

When an injury or fatality accident happens, one thing people need is information – information about the accident itself, and information about what to do next.

The Arlington Police Department will respond to an accident scene when the crash occurs within the city limits, and will create a traffic collision report. Contact the department to find out how to get a copy.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Department responds when an accident happens in the county.

The Washington State Patrol is the repository for the state's collision records. The agency receives all Vehicle Collision Reports from law enforcement officers at the state, county, city, and town levels, along with civilians that report their own collisions. These reports are written for each vehicle collision resulting in injury or death of any person, or damage to property to $1000 or more. Go here to request a copy of a traffic collision report.

The Arlington Fire & Rescue Department provides immediate help for injured victims. Contact them to obtain copies of their records.

Once treatment is finished, attorney Bill Coats will obtain copies of all medical records and bills for his clients, so that he can build a full insurance claim and ensure that all bills are paid in full.
