Rancho Murieta Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
Rancho Murieta is a growing populated community of 6,122 with over 3,500 gently rolling acres with a variety of recreational activities. The townhouses and single-family homes are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Sacramento region. Shhh, its a secret! If you're on your way to Sutter Creek, or Jackson in Amador County, then you pass the North or South gated communities located off of Hwy 16, the notorious Jackson Hwy.Rancho Murieta Auto Accident Lawyer
When driving into the quiet North or South Rancho Murieta, you immediately have a sense of peace and tranquility with the numerous lakes and fountains, beautiful parks, and an obvious slower pace of life. The speed limit is 25 miles an hour, many people are seen out on their golf carts either enjoying a round of golf or seen picking their children up from the Elk Grove School bus stops. It's not uncommon to wait for wild turkeys or deer to stroll across the roads, and many residents report seeing bald eagles, fox, coyotes and an occasional mountain lion.
Many people enjoy living in small towns like Rancho Murieta because they seem quieter and less dangerous when compared to a larger, more highly populated city. Rancho Murieta is about as quaint as you can find, even offering its own country club, golf course, and an airstrip. But no town, regardless of its size, can protect everyone from traffic accidents. Equipment failures can cost lives. Wildlife on the road can injure more than just the animal. Just one unsafe driver can cause irreparable damage to many people.Deadly Highway
Jackson Hwy is known for one of the most dangerous highways in California. Each year there are several serious accidents with fatalities caused by excessive speeding, icy and foggy roads, and passing on this narrow two-lane highway. Here are just a few stories of the many many accidents on this dangerous road:
- September 2, 2015 - Two Drivers Killed
- November 22, 2015 - Car leaves Jackson Highway and hits Sound Wall
- December 22, 2013 - Multiple Vehicle Accident near North Gate
The list goes on and on. In the meantime, the State of California writes reports of plans of what it needs to do such as this concept report, but when it comes to sending men with shovels and asphalt to widen, fix and modernize this highway, nothing is done. As can be seen, because of dense fog, bad highway planning, and inadequate maintenance, Highway 16 remains a deathtrap.The “personal” Personal Injury Lawyer
