Auburn Lake Trails Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


Auburn Lake Trails is an idyllic community located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas. The area offers residents incredible views of California's natural beauty as well as a comfortable, friendly community to call home. While Auburn Lake Trails is a great place to live in or visit, the community is surrounded by some relatively dangerous roads.

Approaching the town from Highway 193 can be difficult, especially in poor weather conditions. Residents often go through Highway 49, one of the area's most accident-prone roadways. These factors contribute significantly to car accidents in the area.

If you or a family member has suffered injuries in an accident that's not your fault, call our experienced Auburn Lake Trails personal injury lawyers today at (530) 392-9400 for a free consultation.

We Handle Serious Injury Cases

We represent people who have been seriously injured in a variety of accidents, including:

The "Personal" Personal Injury Lawyer

We've been called the "personal" personal injury lawyer because we treat our practice holistically. We strive to be compassionate toward the people we work with. We know how difficult recovery can be and are familiar with the stress and emotional issues accidents can cause. We consider our law firm a family, and our clients are a part of it.

Wrongful Death Cases

Accidents can cause fatal injuries, and when this happens, it can leave people feeling completely overwhelmed. We've worked with many families who have suffered through a tragic fatal accident and know how difficult it can be to recover damages while grieving. We are here to handle your case for you to recover both personally and financially.

We Take Cases on a Contingency Fee Basis

We believe that injured parties deserve excellent legal representation, and we take all my cases on contingency. This means that we do not ask for any money up-front and only expect to receive lawyers' fees if we can successfully resolve your case. Running our firm this way means that we can help people who might otherwise not be able to afford a skilled Auburn Lake Trails personal injury attorney.

Choosing the Right Auburn Trails Car Accident Lawyer

Advertisements for lawyers are everywhere. Chances are that you have seen them on television, on the internet, or on local billboards. These ads often make big promises and tout high success rates. However, the reality is that very few attorneys are really prepared to do everything they can to make sure you recover the full recompense you are owed.

Many attorneys who say they have a high success rate are willing to negotiate with insurers and settle for less than their client actually deserves. We don't count a case as a success unless our clients can claim enough to fully recover from their injuries physically, financially, and emotionally.

You could be thinking that we're just not the right injury lawyer for your needs, and that's understandable. Whether or not we are a match, you should know what to look for when choosing an Auburn Lake Trails auto accident attorney. Below are some of the best ways that you can make sure an attorney is experienced and skilled enough to handle your case.

  • Read Reviews - You should make sure that your attorney is well-respected in the community they serve. Thanks to the internet, this is easier than ever to check. To learn about lawyers' reputations, you can visit their profiles on review sites like Avvo, Yelp, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google. The reviews you find on these sites can give you an honest picture of a lawyer's professional and personal merits.
  • Check Experience - Make sure your lawyer has ample experience handling cases like yours. Personal injury law is complicated and negotiating with insurers is a difficult task. It's important to know that your lawyer has had success with cases like yours in the past. You should also ensure that the attorney has experience arguing injury cases in court. Many lawyers will avoid going to trial if they can, which can mean you will have to accept a low-ball offer. To see if your attorney is ready to go to court for your case, you can simply ask them. Their response can often give you a good sense of whether or not they are willing to do everything they can for your case.
  • Look at Settlements and Verdicts - Your lawyer may have handled a high quantity of injury cases, but quality matters even more. A great way to see if a lawyer is good at doing this is to view their case resolutions. Most lawyers list their settlements and verdicts available on their websites. You should also feel free to ask your attorney in person about their past successes. A good lawyer will be happy to tell you about how they've helped their clients.
  • Are they Established? - Finally, make sure your lawyer has the financial means to take on your case. Trials can be expensive, and some firms are too small to afford to go to court. Money shouldn't be an issue standing between you and the payments you deserve for your damages.
