Canadian car accidents in Washington State, USA. Finding an injury lawyer

Washington State is located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It borders Canada to the north, in particular the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. To the south, it neighbours Oregon. To the east, it neighbours Idaho.

This Pacific Northwest state is synonymous with beautiful thick forestry, huge mountain ranges and stunning waterfalls. To experience all this and more, all you need to do is visit Olympic National Park. Within the park are almost a million acres and various ecosystems. There are massive 500-year-old trees, the Kalaloch Beach, and the 90-foot Marymere Falls.

Car Accidents In Washington

If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Washington, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation for any injuries or damages. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Washington is three (3) years from the date of the accident.

Snowbirds should also be aware that Washington is a “at fault” state for car accidents. This means that the person who is at fault for the accident is responsible for paying for any damages or injuries that result from the accident.

It is very important that any snowbirds planning on driving through or visiting Washington optimize their own car insurance.  In particular you need to purchase the maximum amount of underinsured motorist coverage allowed in in their home state or province. This will provide extra protection if they are involved in an accident with a driver who has little or no insurance coverage. In addition, if you are a British Columbia resident, any rights or remedies are exceptionally complicated since British Columbia is a total no-fault system.

Cross-border car accidents are very complicated and with various states and provinces having different rules that apply to car accidents. That’s where Snowbird Accidents comes in!
