Wheatland Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer


Wheatland is a small city in the heart of Northern California. There is a surprising amount of history and attractiveness to the area for such a small town. When you live in or visit a smaller city like Wheatland, it can be easy to let your guard down when you're behind the wheel, which could be a severe mistake. While there are no crazy traffic jams or hazardous intersections in the town, you should be aware of other dangers.

Unfortunately, accidents are caused by carelessness, distracted driving, driving under the influence, and even because there are more than a few tractor-trailers on the road. Whether you drive a car, truck, motorcycle, or any other vehicle, you should take the same care on the roads of Wheatland as you would in the city.

If you or a loved one has been in an accident in or near Wheatland or any other major road in Northern California, we encourage you to contact our experienced Wheatland auto accident attorneys at (530) 392-9400 to help you get the compensation you need.

What to Do After an Accident in Wheatland

First and foremost, try not to panic. While getting into a car accident can be scary and dangerous, keeping cool is essential. Gather information about the crash, including the other driver, witnesses, and pictures. Contact a police officer right away to get details of the accident in writing.

Obtain any medical care needed. Even if you're unsure, you need to go to the hospital. If you have any pain or feel shaken up, go ahead and go. Getting details from a medical professional later could be important for a legal case if it becomes necessary.

Once you're medically stable, your next call should be to a Wheatland car accident lawyer. You do not want to talk to an insurance agent or anyone about your case without getting advice from your lawyer first. Take this step to protect yourself and your case.
