Washington’s City of Everett, currently the 6th largest in the state by population, boasts a colorful history and industry that plays a major role in the economic success of Washington State and the entire Pacific Northwest region. Everett boasts the largest public marina on the West Coast. It is also the location of Naval Station Everett, a U.S. naval base that is the home of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. The area is known for its stunning views of the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, but also for its crowded and dangerous freeways that result in numerous injury accidents every year.
Everett began as a European settlement in 1861, and moved through stages of growth that were fueled by the forestry, mining, manufacturing, and railroad industries, to become a world center for the aerospace and shipping industries. Along the way, it developed a reputation as a hard-living factory town with beautiful scenery, extraordinary access to wilderness, and some of the worst traffic in the state.
While the city of Seattle is more famous for its traffic, recently ranked in the top 10 worst traffic in the nation, Everett is more often than not clogged with traffic jams. Given its proximity to the Canadian border just 75 miles north, Everett is a hub for international freight shipping which causes a high volume of big rigs and freight trains that snarl traffic further. And since Everett is home to a large number of people commuting to Seattle each day, the highways and back roads are a continuous challenge to navigate. A large number of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents result from this combination of traffic, challenging weather conditions, trucking-industry congestion, and traffic jams caused by the 32,000 employees of the aerospace giant Boeing.
Everett injury lawyers are kept busy representing clients who are hurt in car accidents on Everett’s major roads and highways. Everett lies in a weather convergence zone where air flows around the Olympic Mountains and converges over Puget Sound, bringing precipitation that catches drivers unaware and causes accidents from fast-moving and severe weather events. The major traffic jams caused by the movement of the vast Boeing Company workforce increase the congestion and accidents along the busy Boeing Freeway and Interstate 5. Approximately 100 personal injury attorneys serve the Everett area’s 100,000 residents.
US Highway 2 begins in Everett and crosses Stevens Pass to lead travelers to the eastern side of the state. The Highway 2 Trestle is a notorious raised roadway that sees numerous traffic accidents and fatalities every year, in part due to the highway’s lack of emergency shoulders. Since Highway 2 is the primary access from the west to the Stevens Pass Ski Resort and the Eastern Washington region which boast world-class winter and summer sports, accidents caused by speeding, reckless, or impaired drivers are a continual problem along this high-volume, high-speed roadway. Personal injury and DUI attorneys alike are kept busy year round helping clients manage their injury and wrongful death claims.
