South Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

I’m Ed Smith, owner of , the most comprehensive California Auto Accident Website. I’ve been practicing Personal Injury Law since 1982 and have lived in South Sacramento while attending Mc George School of Law from 1978 through 1982 and for several years thereafter. Since then I have represented hundreds of individuals from various neighborhoods in South Sacramento.

They may have been friends or neighbors of yours. My past and present clients have lived in areas such as Land Park, South Land Park, Greenhaven, the Pocket area, Meadowview, Valley High, North Laguna, Golf Course Terrace, Oak Park, Curtis Park, Parkway, Little Saigon, and South Sacramento.

It’s important to know the characteristics of any neighborhood as a street smart accident lawyer is more familiar with the habits of the residents, how they drive, where they congregate and so forth. That edge can give a real advantage if you are injured in South Sacramento and I am in your corner.

For example, if you know where the traffic cameras are located or if streets are in bad repair in an area, it’s much more likely to find the person truly at fault in an accident or if the county may have been negligent in designing or maintaining roads. Here’s a map of the traffic cameras in South Sacramento. (
Similarly, Fruitridge Road and Stockton Boulevard intersection is one of the top Sacramento Collision sites for the past six years. There are, on average, 36 wrecks a year at that intersection. Do you think that intersection may be improperly designed?  I do!

Here’s a bit more about South Sacramento:

The median price of a house in South Sacramento is about $190,000 which is less expensive than 90% of California neighborhoods.The average renter pays about $1060 a month. Most homes are 2-3 bedrooms and the population is equally divided between owners and renters.

Most people in this neighborhood work in sales or service occupations, except for Land Park and Greenhaven, this is a lower middle class neighborhood, and the stress and expenses of an accident can really set a family back. Over 20 percent of households are run by single mothers who can ill afford financial setbacks as a result of someone else’s negligence.

I was raised in the Bedford Stuyvesant section on Brooklyn, New York before I joined the Air Force and made Sacramento home.

I grew up in a similar neighborhood to the folks here and I understand how difficult making a living can be.

I’m very familiar with programs and loan companies that can help you through the very rough times after an accident.
