Canadian Driver Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Canadian Driver Accident Attorneys in Lynnwood

Because Washington borders British Columbia, Canada, we welcome many Canadian motorists, including truck drivers, to our beautiful state. Canadian laws regarding liability and traffic accidents are quite different than our own, which can make traffic accidents involving Canadian motorists that much more complicated. If you’ve been injured by a negligent Canadian driver, the first step you should take is consulting with an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, car accident attorney.

The Canadian Driver’s Responsibility

When Canadian drivers enter the State of Washington, they submit to the state’s jurisdiction, which means that Washington’s laws govern any accidents that ensue. If you’ve been injured by a negligent Canadian motorist, you’ll proceed by filing your car accident claim with the driver’s insurance carrier, and for most of our Canadian neighbors, this is the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).

For this reason, you’re well-advised to work closely with an injury attorney who has considerable experience successfully negotiating with this Canadian government auto insurer. Ultimately, the process and the remedies available to you as an accident victim are the same whether the at-fault driver is an American or a Canadian.

Negligence and Car Accidents

When a motorist gets behind the wheel, he or she is responsible for driving safely and for obeying the rules of the road – regardless of where he or she is driving. When Canadians drive in Washington, in other words, they are responsible for doing so safely. Not being familiar with the area or the laws that apply does not mitigate this responsibility. Car accidents are often precipitated by driver negligence, which can take any of the following forms:

  • Distraction – Canadian motorists are just as susceptible to dangerous distractions as anyone else is, and when a motorist’s thoughts (and/or vision) veer away from the important task at hand, it makes a dangerous accident far more likely. The most prevalent and dangerous distraction on our roads is texting.
  • Impairment – Impairment behind the wheel is exceptionally dangerous. Motorists who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs experience diminished impulse and motor control, are less inhibited, and exhibit increased reaction times (all of which are dangerous traits in drivers).
  • Excess Speed – Speed plays a starring role in fatal accident statistics. Excess speed makes accidents both more likely and more serious.
  • Exhaustion – Drowsy drivers are not as alert as they should be and are, therefore, dangerous drivers.

Don’t Wait to Consult with an Experienced Lynnwood Canadian Driver Accident Attorney

If the driver that leaves you injured in a traffic accident is Canadian, you’ll proceed in exactly the same way you would if he or she were American. You will, however, want a personal injury attorney on your side with considerable experience successfully negotiating with ICBC, the Canadian government car insurer, and the experienced car accident lawyers at Napier & George, P.S. – serving Lynnwood, Washington – have a wealth of experience successfully guiding claims like yours toward just resolutions.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Alexander L.

The firm itself is wonderful. The whole process was seamless from the consultation to the settlement check. The communication was more than enough and I felt like I was apart of the process without the pressure of dealing with it.

Y’all took incredible care of me. From dealing with one of the most notoriously difficult and selfish insurance companies known to man, to taking my family out of any future legal proceedings due to some majorly painful life changes, to securing me enough return funds to go back to physical therapy – N&G are incredible and so thoughtful and kind. My endless gratitude goes out to y’all and everyone else in the office too!

Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process.

Thank you so much!
