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.

It's easy for Mukilteo car accident victims to visualize their injuries, especially if they've been diagnosed with a concussion or head injury: the brain swells upon impact, just as any soft tissue does. Also, tiny tears in the soft tissue can create scars, which causes pain and decreased mobility. It may feel that there's nothing more that can be done short of surgery, which no one wants. However, that is not the case. Physical therapists and massage therapists can speed healing, increase mobility, and gently break apart scar tissue.

Physical therapy is becoming a standard for car accident victims healing from broken bones. Mukilteo has several physical therapists trained in helping car accident victims manage their pain and regain mobility after suffering traumatic damage from fractures and broken bones. It's not an easy process, but it is possible to live pain free with full mobility even after serious bone breakage after a car accident. You'll want to work with an expert close to home. Luckily, Mukilteo has these wonderful professionals willing and able to help:

As devastating as it is to consider, some Mukilteo car accident victims are going to walk away with serious burns. As scar tissue heals, it becomes tighter and more rigid than the skin it replaced. Massage therapists trained in working with burn scar tissue know techniques that can gently get the skin "unstuck" from the tissue underneath and gradually help the client experience less pain and more mobility around the damaged skin.

Mukilteo, WA is a beautiful, quaint city popular with tourists eager to visit land and sea. However, natural beauty or looking at a phone to find our way to our destination can make for distracted driving, and that can mean a serious car accident. Neck and back injuries are common in car accidents, especially when distracted driving is present. Drivers have no safe path out of the way of a distracted driver, and too often their bodies pay the price. Car accident victims are then sent on a sometimes long and grueling path to recovery.

If you are found liable in an auto accident, IT WAS YOUR FAULT.  When this happens and you have the minimum liability coverage, the person you have injured will only receive up to $25,000, no matter how hurt they are.  Washington State requires all drivers to have at least the minimum amount.  If more than one person is hurt, the policy will pay out no more than $50,000 for the total accident, which includes your own passengers.  This could leave you financially at risk.  You may want more coverage.  Generally, the more belongings you have, the more insurance coverage ($) you will want to s
