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

The region's medical centers produce records that support your injury claim

Often the first post-crash experience for an injured person is being treated at Mill Creek's largest nearby hospital, Swedish Mill Creek Campus. Major trauma injuries may be referred to the larger regional medical centers:

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.

Families can get emotional support after losing someone in a fatal Mill Creek accident

When a loved one is killed in a motor-vehicle accident, many grieving families work with a grief support organization or therapist, to get help recovering and moving forward in life. Go here to learn more about Mill Creek grief support providers.

The Mill Creek court systems help accident victims deal with the civil, criminal, and legal aspects of a crash

The Snohomish County District Court typically has authority over minor criminal matters, traffic tickets, and civil lawsuits where a small amount of money is involved. The Snohomish County Superior Court handles felony cases and civil cases involving larger amounts of money.

Drunk-drivers continue to be a major safety issue and cause of Mill Creek accidents

Bill Coats Law works with clients every day whose lives have been impacted by the actions of a drunk or drugged driver. We support the efforts of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) as they strive to reduce and prevent these collisions. Here's a link to the MADD site which provides great information on their important work.

Bicyclists and motorcyclists are at higher risk of injury and death on Mill Creek roadways
