Mount Shasta Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
Hi! My name is Ed Smith, and I'm a Mount Shasta personal injury attorney. I'm also the founder of the website AutoAccident.com, where people can learn about auto accidents and the damage and harm they can cause, as well as how to receive help and compensation. At my law firm, we focus on representing people who have been seriously injured in accidents.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a vehicle accident or some other type of accident, reaching out to an attorney may be necessary. It can help you receive fair compensation. My team and I may be able to help you, as we handle a lot of different accident types. These include:
- Trucking accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Plane accidents
- Boating accidents
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Dog Bites
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Slips and falls
- Wrongful death
Experiencing serious injuries in a car accident can leave lasting damage. There are a lot of people who have struggled with these types of injuries, and I'm one of them. I, too, have been seriously injured in an accident. Recovering can take a long time, and it's not easy. It's also not just something that happens physically. There are mental, financial, and emotional areas that all have to be addressed to have a complete recovery. My experience has been harrowing at times, but it has also allowed me to understand what my clients face and how to help them better.
Because of that, I treat clients like family, and my approach to being a Mount Shasta car accident lawyer is much more holistic than you'll find from most other attorneys. I understand the value of compassion and kindness when trying to recover from significant injuries, and I want to make sure my team stays focused on that every day, with every client. It can make a significant difference throughout the process of recovery.

Mount Shasta is a great place to live and work, and with just over 3,300 people calling it home it's easy to see that there is a comfortable, small-town feel there, as well. Climbing mountains, fishing for trout, and skiing are popular in the area, and the little town serves as a base for doing these things for a lot of residents and visitors. Hiking and biking are common activities, too, but all the activities and travel can mean people are at risk for accidents and injuries, as well.Should You Choose a Lawyer Based in Sacramento?
I live and work in Sacramento. That would seem odd and have you questioning why you would hire a Mount Shasta auto accident attorney who isn't in Mount Shasta. But having my law firm in a big city helps me have a bigger client base so I can keep operating and doing more for the people who need me. I'm also particular about which cases I take on, and having this location means I can specialize. Trouble traveling? Call me anyway. We'll figure something out that works for both of us.Working on a Contingency Basis to Help You
Financial recovery from serious injuries requires strong legal representation. But most people don't have the money for legal fees. Because I work on contingency, I will only take a fee when your case has been successfully resolved. You don't have to pay anything up front, and if I don't resolve your case successfully, you won't be paying me at all.The Right Attorney Will Handle Your Case Properly
Attorneys are always advertising what they can do for their clients and making big payout promises for accidents and injuries. Their success rate may seem high, but it's important to understand what they consider successful. If they're settling cases for a lot less than their clients deserve, that's not really a success. I don't count my cases as successful unless you get enough for a full financial, emotional, and physical recovery.
Should you choose me as your attorney? You'll have to be the one to decide that, but getting a quality attorney no matter who you choose is important. When selecting a Mount Shasta personal injury attorney, here are some of the things you should consider.
An Attorney Should Be Experienced
Personal injury is a complex area of law. When you choose an attorney, select one who has experience in the type of case you have. Ideally, that attorney should also be comfortable with arguing in court, with ensuring you can get all the help you really need to resolve your case.
Look at the Settlements and Verdicts
Attorneys will often put their settlements and verdicts on their website, so potential clients can see what they have done for others. If an attorney doesn't have that information available, don't be shy about asking. You want to know what kind of successes your potential attorney has experienced with other clients.
Read Attorney Reviews
By reading reviews, you can more easily decide if a particular attorney is right for you. Reviews offer information on patterns of behavior, and if most of the reviews are good ones, then you have a higher chance of a good experience with that attorney.
An Attorney Should Be Established
An attorney who is established will have the proper financial means to take on bigger cases. It can be very costly to pursue a case, and that's even more accurate if that case goes to trial. The right resources are necessary to help you.Mount Shasta Car Accident and Personal Injury Attorneys
