El Dorado Hills Car Accident Lawyer

Folks commute to and from work every day all across the country, and El Dorado Hills is no different. But sometimes the normal traffic of our daily routines can become dangerous and tragic in a heart beat. Accidents can happen without warning to anyone, whether you're driving a car, truck, SUV or motorcycle. High speed accidents on interstates such as highway 50 can cause serious injuries, and sometimes death.

Highway 50, El Dorado Hills Blvd, and Silva Valley Parkway are the most notorious for traffic accidents in the area, but wrecks can happen even on small, seemingly safe, neighborhood streets. With such easy access to Folsom Lake, boating accidents aren't uncommon, either. Both land vehicles and water craft alike can cause serious injury, even at relatively low speeds.
