Folsom Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

car accidentCar accidents can have many serious consequences, and that's why it's important to have an experienced lawyer who handles only personal injury cases work with you on your case.

Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life which many of us experience, either as a driver or a passenger. While many accidents are minor, some do result in serious injury or even involve fatalities. Some crashes may be due to simple driver error, and others involve negligence such as distracted driving, reckless driving, street racing, or motorists operating vehicles while under the influence.

What Other Factors Contribute to a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Other contributing factors involve improper repairs of commercial vehicles or even faulty road designs. While car, truck, and SUV accidents can occur in any part of Folsom, some of the more trafficked roads include Highway 50, or any of Folsom's major roads such as Folsom Blvd., Bidwell Street, Oak Ave, or East Natoma Street.
