Auburn Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

flowers

Beautiful Auburn, California, has grown from a sleepy, quaint Gold Rush town to an inviting and vibrant destination for Northern Californians seeking a great place to raise a family or who thrive on outdoor activities. The population has increased as many younger families have left the surrounding larger cities searching for a quieter life, more land, and great schools.

As a result, Auburn businesses are booming, and traffic volumes continue to increase. Its proximity to busy Interstate 80, combined with a growing population and many recreational visitors on weekends, means the risk of being involved in an automobile accident in Auburn has also increased.  

If you or a loved one suffered injuries in an Auburn car accident and would like to receive free and friendly legal advice regarding your potential claim, please call our experienced injury lawyers today at (530) 392-9400.
