Resources that help injured people after an Everett 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 Everett 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 Everett Fire & Rescue Department provides immediate help for injured victims. Contact them to obtain copies of their records.

Increased congestion, distracted driving and reckless drivers have made Everett drivers more wary of getting in a car accident, and rightly so. Though modern vehicles are built safer and stronger, there is an increase in overall car accidents due to those factors. A common car accident injury is a concussion or head injury. Modern treatment has advanced, and the age-old advice of simply resting is long gone. Physical therapy, chiropractic, and massage, especially in combination, can greatly increase healing.

Everett car accident victims can rest assured that some of the best physical therapists are locally available to work with recovery from fractures and broken bones. Medicine has come such a long way, and with it the application of physical therapy to pain management and healing. Accident victims don't have to rely on painkillers to help them recover from the injuries they receive in a serious car accident. Physical therapy has been shown to help car accident victims' mobility substantially, just by using the body's natural healing abilities.

It's a nightmare scenario, one that leaves scars much deeper than surface level: you're driving through Everett on a wintry, wet day and someone slams into you on I-5. Your car catches fire, and you're the victim of a very serious car accident. If you are reading this, you are probably experiencing the trauma of post car accident burn scar pain. Please know there is help available for you, in the form of compensation for your injuries as well as skilled massage therapists trained to work on car accident victims' burn scars in Everett.

It's not difficult to imagine, since accidents like these happen every day in Everett or beyond. You're waiting at a light when suddenly your world changes - the car behind you was focused on something other than driving and did not stop before ramming into you. In the days leading after your car accident, you experience pain and swelling in your neck and back, and feel like even though no bones were broken something is terribly wrong. It might take awhile to get back to full health, but the good news is there are professionals trained to treat car accident victims in Everett.

You are in an accident; it is YOUR FAULT!!!  Do you know what your insurance liability coverage is?  Washington State requires that you have a minimum $25,000/$50,000 liability coverage policy on all your vehicles; it’s the Law.  With minimum coverage, the injured person will receive up to $25,000 from your insurance policy, despite how battered they are.  If more than one are hurt in the same accident, the policy will pay out no more than $50,000 for the total accident.  This includes your own passengers.
