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.

Whiplash is by far one of the most common car accident injuries, in Marysville car accidents or anywhere else. It's easy to see how. In a typical car accident, a force is applied, intensely and suddenly, to a car from an outside object - perhaps another car, or a tree, guardrail, etc. Suddenly, the vehicle's forward motion is going to come to an abrupt stop, but not before the car richochets around and disperses all that energy that inertia had been swiftly moving along. Those forces applied to the soft tissue of a neck are going to create tears, sprains, or bruising, or worse.

Marysville car accident victims know firsthand what a life changing event a concussion or head injury is. The effects can be felt quickly, soon after the car wreck, or in the days or weeks after. Blurred vision, dizziness, forgetting simple things - these are just a few of the symptoms of a concussion. As you can imagine, those would make showing up to work and be a functioning member of ones life very difficult, and add complicated emotions to the recovery. These are serious injuries, and medical attention should be sought after any car accident where there is impact to a victim's head.

Fractures are serious injuries that can change a Marysville car accident victim's life forever. Improperly healed broken bones can wreak a lifetime of pain on an accident victim. If this is due to an accident that happened because of someone else's negligence, the psychological impact of that injury is even harder to heal. That's why we encourage car accident victims to seek the best care for their injuries, especially those as serious as fractures and broken bones. Luckily, many skilled physical therapists who work with patients rehabilitating broken bones are located in Marysville.

It's a horrifying thought, but for Marysville car accident victims who have been burned, a unfortuante reality. It used to be that burns were too hard to treat, and their consequences of pain and disfigurement were inescapable. Luckily, medical science has advanced and there are ways to help heal the pain of burn scars after a car accident in Marysville. Massage therapy is one example of a way of helping accident victims feel better. Massage can improve circulation of blood and lymph to damaged tissue, and is often covered by PIP.

The spinal column is composed of a system of connected bones and soft tissue and is involved in all major types of movement in the human body. If you are involved in a Marysville car accident and your back or spine is injured, you know full well how this injury affects nearly every aspect of your life. A car accident can happen so fast, and yet the recovery can take so long. It makes good sense to let your personal injury attorney handle the complications of your claim while you focus on healing your body.

You may not want to take the time but do interview more than one personal injury attorney.

Did you know that it is the law in Washington State to have a minimum of $25,000/$50,000 liability coverage policy on all of your vehicles?  When it is YOUR FAULT in an auto accident, you are liable.  When you are liable and have only the minimum liability coverage, the person you have injured will only receive $25,000 from your insurance policy, no matter how hurt they are.  If more than one person is injured, including any of your passengers, the policy will only pay out $50,000 for the total accident.  This could be risky financially.  Insurance companies do offer more than minimum cover

When Marysville Washington police are called to the scene of an accident, they will be writing up an accident report.  Some of the items included in this accident report will be how the accident happened, who was at fault, who the registered owner was and whether there was insurance.  Most of this is not the information that they give you at the scene.  Personal Injury Attorney Bill Coats will order the complete Marysville Police Report at your consultation with him.  If you wish to order it yourself, go to this link:

You thought it would be nice to take a Saturday drive through Marysville, Washington, maybe stop for lunch.  Then, “Kabam!!!”  You are rear-ended while waiting for a green light.  Aside from the car damage, everyone seems to be uninjured.  Two days later, you wake up stiff and sore; by the end of the week, you can’t get out of bed without help.  Chiropractic Treatment may be helpful and most chiropractors take X-rays to make sure there are no broken bones or herniated disks before beginning treatment.
