Palermo Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyer


Palermo is a small town in Butte County with just under 5,400 people. The summers are warm and enjoying the climate at any time of year is easy. Palermo continues to grow, but that growth and the tourist population that comes with it also means the chance of more car collisions and other types of accidents.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in an accident caused by another's negligence, call our experienced Palermo personal injury lawyers today at (530) 392-9400 or (800) 404-5400 for a free consultation.

Proudly Serving the People of Palermo and Butte County

Our personal injury law firm is focused on representing people who have sustained significant injuries in an accident. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident, it may be time for you to contact an injury lawyer. Our legal team may be able to help you. Some of the accident types we handle include:

We Put the "Personal" in Personal Injury Attorney

An injury from an accident is not just physical. There are mental, emotional, and financial areas that also require recovery. We treat our clients like family, and our approach is much more holistic than you will get with other lawyers. When you're recovering from a severe injury, compassion is needed. It's a large part of the process, and our legal team practices daily with each client. It's important to be kind during the process of recovery.

You Need an Advocate for Your Wrongful Death Case

Losing a loved one to a fatal injury or accident is very painful in many ways. The people left behind often feel overwhelmed with all day-to-day life that has changed and the decisions they have to make. They can also feel confused and lost quite quickly. In the midst of that, they may also be trying to recover damages, which means more difficulty and stress than they should not have to deal with. The situation is delicate enough without all that. Our legal team works with families in that situation and is here to help you, too. With a Palermo car accident lawyer handling your case, you can focus on your recovery. You will begin to heal with less stress.

We Take Cases on a Contingency Fee Basis

You will need good legal representation to recover financially from your serious injuries, but you are not able to pay upfront for your legal fees. We only collect a payment when your case is resolved successfully, and that fee comes from the amount you receive from the other party. You won't pay anything upfront, and if we don't settle the case in your favor, you don't owe us anything.

How an Attorney Can Help with Your Injury Case

Attorneys advertise their services everywhere. You'll see accident victim billboards, pop-up ads online, and commercials on TV. Every accident attorney in your area sits around, waiting to take on your case. Unfortunately, many of these promises are not kept as well as they should be. It's straightforward to tout high success rates, but that doesn't mean the attorney will do everything it takes to ensure you are getting appropriate compensation for your injuries or the injuries of a loved one.

A high success rate could mean settling many cases for less than the client could have or should have received. We don't count cases as successes unless my client gets enough compensation to fully recover, including emotional, physical, and financial recovery.

How to Choose the Best Injury Lawyer

We may not be the right attorney for your needs, but no matter which Palermo auto accident attorney you choose, you should know what to look for. It's good to know what to look for when selecting the best personal injury lawyer to represent you.

  • Know the Attorney's Experience - Personal injury law is complicated, and your attorney needs experience handling cases like yours. Without that experience and knowledge of arguing cases in court, they might not be the right lawyer for you.
  • Understand the Verdicts and Settlements - In most cases, attorneys make verdicts and settlements available on their website. You need to know what kinds of success your potential attorney has experienced. If your attorney doesn't, don't be afraid to ask.
  • Read Reviews of Potential Attorneys - Reading attorney reviews can help you decide if they're a good choice for quality representation. Not all reviews are 100 percent true, but it's usually easy to spot people leaving legitimate reviews about their experiences.
  • Determine How Established an Attorney Is - Any attorney should be well established and have the financial means to take on significant cases. Pursuing a claim is expensive, especially true if it goes to trial. Your attorney needs the resources to help you properly.

The following video explains selecting the best personal injury lawyer for your case.
