Arbuckle Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


Arbuckle is a small town of about 3,000 residents that sits in the heart of the Sacramento Valley and is one of the largest agricultural areas in the United States. Surrounded by orchards, fields, and streams, the residents of Arbuckle enjoy a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and a short drive to both the Sacramento metropolitan area and the San Francisco Bay.

Residents can just as easily visit Clearlake for a hike as to attend a show in Sacramento or take a dip in the nearby Yuba River. While Arbuckle is an idyllic town in many ways, it's also located on Interstate 5, one of the state's main roadways for travel up and down the coast. Being in an agricultural hub like the Sacramento Valley means that Arbuckle residents see many semi-trucks hauling goods up and down the state. For these reasons, accidents happen all too frequently. 

If you have been injured in an accident in Arbuckle or elsewhere in Colusa County, call our injury lawyers today at (530) 392-9400 or (800) 404-5400 for a free case evaluation.

The "Personal" Personal Injury Lawyer

We've been called the "personal" personal injury lawyer. This is because of the way we choose to run my practice. We prioritize working personally with our clients and believe that the best way to deal with injury cases is through developing a relationship with the people we work with. Because we have suffered severe injuries myself, we understand the stress and emotional issues that being injured can cause. We like to think of our law firm as a big family, and the people we represent are considered members.

Many attorneys prefer to have a strictly professional connection to the people they represent. This approach works for some people, but we have found that it is a more practical approach to getting to know our clients as people. Being familiar with our clients' families and day-to-day lives helps us truly understand the impact their injury has caused. With this understanding, we can more effectively bring their case to insurers and argue for their rights in the courtroom.

We Take Cases On Contingency Fee Basis

Many people are unsure how they will be able to afford the legal help they need. We believe that finances shouldn't keep people from getting the money they deserve for the damages they have suffered. For this reason, we take my cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not ask our clients for an up-front payment and only charge lawyers' fees if we can successfully resolve their case. Running our law firm this way allows us to help people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford a top-rate Arbuckle car accident lawyer.

What Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Case?

Injuries can dramatically affect people's lives, and recovering from an injury can be emotionally and physically challenging. On top of this, medical care is often expensive, and accident survivors frequently have to pay for hospital stays, medicine, surgeries, therapy, and other medical costs. Additionally, being injured can make it difficult or impossible to continue working, which means a serious loss of income.

Because accidents affect lives in so many different ways, severe injury cases often seek payment for many losses. The damages available to injured parties are typically grouped into economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses include things that come with a specific dollar amount, such as medical bills and lost income. Non-economic losses are more challenging to define and involve loss of quality of life, emotional issues, etc. The best way to get an idea of what you may be owed for your injuries is to speak directly with an Arbuckle auto accident attorney.

Finding a Quality Arbuckle Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people know that they should seek help from an attorney but are unsure of how they can find a lawyer who has enough experience and skill to ensure success. Having an Arbuckle personal injury lawyer you feel comfortable with is a big deal, and the quality of your attorney is a critical part of claiming the payments you are owed. Thankfully, there are a few tried and true methods that you can use to make sure your attorney has what it takes to handle your case. These include researching an attorney's history of case resolutions, reading reviews of their practice, and seeing whether or not they are comfortable taking your case to court.

You can learn about these methods by watching the following video produced by our firm:
