Wheatland Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

Wheatland Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

Located about twelve miles southeast of Marysville, California, Wheatland is a small city in the heart of Northern California. For such a small town (currently only around 2,300 residents located in an area approximately one square mile) there is a surprising amount of history and attractiveness to the area. Discover what makes Wheatland such a unique place and why someone may want to live or visit this attractive community.

Caution While Driving in and Around Wheatland

When you live or visit a smaller town like Wheatland, it can be easy to let your guard down when you’re behind the wheel. That could be a serious mistake. While there are no crazy traffic jams or highly-dangerous intersections in the town, there are other dangers of which you should be aware of. Unfortunately, there are accidents 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.

What to Do If You Are In an Accident in Wheatland

First and foremost, try not to panic. While getting into a car accident can be scary and dangerous, keeping your cool is important. If possible, 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 not sure you need to go to the hospital, if you have any pain or just 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 really anyone about your case without getting advice from your lawyer first. Take this step to protect yourself and your case.

If you or a loved one has been in an accident in or near Wheatland or any other major road in Northern California, I encourage you to contact an experienced Wheatland car accident lawyer to help you get the compensation you need.

Wheatland Personal Injury Attorney

If you are looking for a Wheatland Personal Injury Lawyer, then you've come to the right place. I’m Ed Smith, a personal injury lawyer originally from New York but I've lived in Northern California since 1969. Even though I have an NYC personality and will tell it to you straight, I truly resonate with California and am proud to consider myself a Californian at heart.

I am pleased to handle serious injury cases as a Wheatland Car Accident Lawyer from my office in Sacramento. You may wonder if working with a local lawyer would make more sense. I can say that in big cases, no. You want a lawyer (be it me or someone else) who calls personal injury or auto accident cases their specialty.

Now, if you have a smaller case, I know a number of highly-qualified lawyers to whom I can refer you. Unfortunately, I can’t help you with a small case as I only handle serious injury or death cases in Wheatland.

The video below will give you an idea of what to look for when choosing a personal injury lawyer for your case.

"Personal" Personal Injury Lawyer

I’ve made my name in injury law by personally building a solid connection with all my clients. I am often referred to as the “Personal” personal injury attorney--that is something to which no other Wheatland Personal Injury Attorney can boast.

I am from New York City. I will always tell it to you straight. If there are problems with your case, I will be the one who tells you. If it is a solid case, I’ll tell you that as well.

I don’t like surprises, and I never want my clients to be surprised either. While you may not look forward to the day you have to hire a Wheatland Auto Accident Attorney, I want to make the experience as smooth, stress-free and rewarding as possible.
