Everett victims of distracted drivers have resources available to help them move forward

After an accident with a distracted driver, injured people and their attorneys need information as they prepare the insurance claim. Here we offer links to various organizations, including:

The Everett Police Department usually produces a traffic collision report after an injury crash. This report is a crucial piece of information needed to determine liability in a collision with a distracted driver. Contact us for help with a police report.

The Everett Fire & Rescue Department often will respond to the scene of an injury collision, and they also produce important reports that will support your insurance claim.

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.

Everett's major hospitals include Providence Everett Medical Center. This and other medical facilities will provide copies of your medical records and bills following treatment, which will be needed to fully support your claim. Bill Coats and his team will obtain copies of these reports as they work up your personal injury case.
