South Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

South Sacramento Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

I’m Ed Smith, founder of www.AutoAccident.com, the most comprehensive California car 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 after that. Since then I have represented hundreds of individuals from various neighborhoods in South Sacramento.

South Sacramento Neighborhoods

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 essential 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.

Traffic Cameras

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, the intersection at Fruitridge Road and Stockton Boulevard 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!

South Sacramento Residents

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.

Holistic Approach

My firm is known as the “personal” personal injury lawyers because I believe taking a very personal interest in my clients' welfare. I act as a catalyst in helping my clients heal from their injuries, and transform breakdowns into breakthroughs.

The following video explains more about my holistic approach to personal injury law.
