Serving Residents of Cottonwood and Shasta County

Our legal team at AutoAccident.com represents people who have been seriously hurt in accidents. We may be able to help you receive compensation for your injuries or for the harm a loved one sustained. We handle many different types of accidents, such as:

Giving Personal Service as a Personal Injury Attorney

Being injured in an accident is not just physical recovery that's important. It's also mental, financial, and emotional recovery. Our clients are treated like family, focusing on a more holistic approach. You just won't get that with the majority of attorneys. As your Cottonwood auto accident attorneys, we will give you the compassion and kindness you need so you can start recovering from your serious injuries or from the loss of a loved one.

Your Cottonwood Wrongful Death Case Advocate

It can be excruciating to lose someone you care about to a fatal injury or an accident. You may feel confused and overwhelmed, along with hurt and depressed. Even everyday life tasks can be challenging when struggling, but you still have to make decisions. 

All of that makes it even more difficult to recover damages, but you don't have to deal with that alone. As your Cottonwood personal injury attorneys, we will focus on recovering damages for you so you can focus on the recovery you need in the other areas of your life. We will work with you, just like we've worked with many other people in that situation.

We Take Cases on a Contingency Basis

Solid legal representation matters, but you might be concerned that you can't afford it. We take cases on contingency, which means you don't need to pay me anything up front. We will collect my fee once your case is resolved successfully. If we can't do that for you, you don't need to pay us at all. So, there's no financial risk to you by hiring our law firm.

Getting the Right Attorney for Your Needs 

Attorneys are always advertising. Billboards, television commercials, internet ads, and more tell you that a particular attorney can help you. It seems like an extensive line of attorneys is just waiting to take on your specific case. But that's not reality, and a lot of these attorneys won't keep the promises they seem to be making. 

For example, they may say they have high success rates, but that doesn't mean they got the best compensation for their clients. We don't consider your case a success unless your compensation is enough to fully recover. That means financially, but also physically and emotionally too.

Are we the right attorney for you? We don't know, because that's for you to decide. But we do know that you want to find a good Cottonwood personal injury attorney who can meet your needs. To do that, you should know what you need to look for. Here are some of the most important things to consider when choosing an attorney to represent you.

  • Read Reviews to See What Clients Think - It's essential to read the reviews of any attorney you're thinking about hiring. Some reviews can be biased or inaccurate, but there's also a lot of good information available to you. Seeing what past clients say about their experience can help you make a hiring decision for your case.
  • Check Out Verdicts and Settlements - Many attorneys put their verdicts and settlements on their websites for potential clients to take a look at. If you don't see that, don't be afraid to ask. You should know the type of success an attorney has experienced.
  • Understand the Attorney's Experience - Personal injury is one of the more complicated areas of the law. Any attorney you choose should have the experience to handle your type of case properly. Without good expertise and knowing how best to argue a case in court, an attorney may not be able to give you what you're looking for as far as legal representation.
  • Consider Whether an Attorney is Established - Established attorneys have the financial ability to take on significant cases. If your attorney doesn't have that ability, you could lose adequate representation and compensation. Pursuing a claim is often costly, especially true for cases that go to trial. An attorney with good resources will be better equipped to help you.
