Ripon Auto Accident & Personal Injury Attorney
Welcome! I’m Ed Smith, Ripon personal injury and car accident attorney and the founder of this website, AutoAccident.com. One thing you cannot fail to do on a visit to Ripon is tasting some California almonds. As long as droughts do not undermine the local agriculture of Ripon, almonds should be plentiful.
If you happen to be around or passing by the area in February, consider stopping for the annual Almond Blossom Festival, which is the big event each year in this small community located in the middle of the San Joaquin Valley. The location along the Stanislaus River makes it the perfect place for families to go fishing and river rafting. Then there is Mavis Stouffer Park, right off of the Stanislaus River, which offers residents and visitors of Ripon ball fields, picnic facilities, and a gazebo residents can rent for special occasions.Choosing the Right Ripon CA Attorney for Your Case
If a negligent party caused you serious injury, you need an attorney who knows the ins and outs of personal injury law. You need a lawyer who is compassionate; someone who cares about the predicament you are in, and honestly wants to help you get back on your feet, both financially and physically.
You are probably wondering where to start when looking for the right attorney for your case. This can be an intimidating task for those who have never needed a lawyer before. There are thousands of personal injury lawyers who handle cases for California clients, and plenty who will take on cases in Ripon. Where do you start?
I made this Youtube video with some pointers on how to select the right attorney to represent you:
In basic terms, you should take the following into consideration:
- Choose an attorney who makes you feel like you, your family, and what you need and want is important;
- Select a lawyer who handles personal injury cases exclusively;
- Pick an attorney who can show you a long history of successful trial verdicts; and
- Find a lawyer who has a proven track record of successful and high settlement and verdict amounts.
