CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

Lodi Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


Lodi is located in California's Central Valley. As a hot spot for wine lovers, the city has been a respected part of California's wine industry for over 100 years. With 85 boutique wineries and 70 tasting rooms, Lodi brings plenty of visitors to traffic to the area. With an increase in traffic, there's always a risk of an accident.

Sometimes accidents are caused by negligence, poor vehicle maintenance, or reckless behavior such as speeding, driving while distracted or intoxicated. In other cases, some roads are notorious for accidents, such as California State Route 12.

Dangerous Highway

Highway 12, also known as “blood alley,” is particularly dangerous from Lodi to Rio Vista and Fairfield. The road is busy and often occupied by recreational vehicles and big rigs. Skinny stretches of highway with poor lighting, the lack of dividers, deep ditches instead of shoulders are some of the factors that make accidents all the worse, often resulting in traumatic injuries and fatalities.
