Colusa Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
With just around 6,000 individuals, Colusa is one of Sacramento Valley's hidden gems. The town is situated between the Colusa National Wildlife Refuge and the Sacramento River and offers easy access to beautiful natural scenery.
Like other cities in California, Colusa sees its fair share of auto accidents. According to data from UC Berkeley research, the town had 129 traumatic accidents between 2007 and 2018. Colusa County was the site of nearly 1,400 injury-causing collisions involving severe or fatal trauma. Although the area does not usually see heavy traffic, drivers tend to be cautious; avoiding crashes isn't always possible, and accidents can happen anytime.
Our law firm represents people from Colusa who have sustained severe injuries in accidents. However, we also help those injured in many different types of accidents. These include:
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Pedestrian collisions
- Motorcycle accidents
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Plane accidents
- Slip and fall
- Boating accidents
- Fallen tree accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Defective or dangerous products
We are known as "personal" personal injury attorneys. Our practice is run holistically, and we always try to establish a meaningful relationship with our clients. We can be more effective attorneys if we understand our clients personally. This helps us communicate to insurers and courtrooms how severely their injuries have affected their lives.
Many lawyers prefer to keep at arm's length from the clients they represent. While this can work for some, we make it a point to visit our clients and their families. Most people with a personal injury claim are in a challenging situation, and our job is to help them recover financially and personally.We Help with Wrongful Death Cases
Tragically, some accidents cost people their lives. Fatal accidents can be devastating, and families are often overwhelmed with grief and dire financial problems. It can be hard to focus during this time, and taking legal action often seems out of reach. However, we believe people deserve compensation from the parties responsible for their loved ones' death. We have compassion for our clients and their families and do everything we can to ensure they are financially secure after suffering such a traumatic event.What Is Recoverable in a Personal Injury Claim?
Accident injuries affect people's lives in many different ways. For this reason, various types of compensation are available to people who have suffered injuries. While these losses vary widely and are far-reaching, they can be divided into two main categories. These categories are economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages have a substantial dollar amount. They include the following:
- Vehicle damage
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- In-home care
- Home modifications
Non-economic damages are more complicated because they do not readily have value, such as loss of quality of life and emotional trauma. Insurance companies sometimes lowball their offers for these damages, undermining the damage caused by an injury. When this happens, it is critical to have a Colusa car accident attorney who can negotiate an injury case to ensure you get the payments you deserve.Choosing The Best Injury Attorney for Your Case
You may think that we're not the right attorney for your needs. This is totally understandable, and it is essential to feel comfortable with the person handling your case. Regardless, we would like to offer you some advice about how you can make sure an injury attorney is skilled and experienced enough to take on your claim. Some things to keep in mind are:
- Reputation - Your lawyer should have the respect of their peers and clients. You can see what people think of a lawyer by reading reviews on their online profiles. Check sites like Avvo, Yelp, Google, and LinkedIn.
- History - One of the best ways to see if a lawyer knows what they are doing is to look at their verdicts and settlements. Most lawyers will have these listed on their websites. You should also feel free to ask an attorney about this in person. A good lawyer will be happy to tell you about their past success.
- Preparedness - Sometimes, a negotiation can't be reached, and a claim must be taken to court. You should check if your lawyer is comfortable arguing your case before a judge or jury. If an attorney doesn't seem satisfied with the idea, they may settle for less than you deserve during negotiations.
