Williams Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

shop front

Williams is a beautiful city with a population of just over 5,000 individuals nestled right in the heart of the Sacramento Valley. Residents enjoy a small-town community and easy access to some beautiful wildlife reserves, the Sacramento River, and other natural areas. Even though Williams is relatively small, it is only about an hour away from Sacramento, Northern California's second-largest metropolitan region.

While Williams is a great place to live, it has traffic like any other city. Unfortunately, where there is traffic, there is also the risk of traumatic collisions. Additionally, Williams is located in an agricultural hub, and many large trucks carry produce shipments on local highways. While residents are usually careful drivers, over 150 traumatic car accidents have been reported within Williams city limits over the past ten years.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident in Williams, CA, and need legal assistance, call our law office at (530) 392-9400 or (800) 404-5400 for a free case evaluation.

Representing Williams and Colusa County Residents

Our personal injury law firm represents people from Williams who've suffered serious injuries during accidents. We deal solely with major injury cases. While we focus on severe trauma, we handle various accident types. Some of the accident types we deal with include:

The "Personal" Personal Injury Attorney

We have a reputation as a "personal" personal injury lawyer. This is because we always prioritize interacting with our clients personally. The emotional and mental stress that injuries can have impacts the lives of accident survivors and their families. If we establish a personal relationship with our clients, we can better understand how their injury has affected them.

Showing care and compassion to our clients can more effectively prepare their cases to negotiate with insurance companies and, if necessary, argue for their rights in court. While some lawyers prefer a strictly professional relationship with the people they represent, we consider our law firm a family. If we are representing you, that makes you a part of it.

Wrongful Death Cases

Since 1982, we have worked with many families who lost a loved one because of a preventable accident. We have seen the immense emotional damage that wrongful death accidents can cause and are well aware of the financial hardships of losing a loved one. 

We believe grieving families deserve financial stability, and responsible parties should be held accountable for their negligence. Our job is to help people recover the payments they are owed to heal financially and personally after such a traumatic event.

What Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Case?

Many people know that injuries are expensive but don't realize how far-reaching the damages can be. People who've suffered injuries often need to pay for medical bills and additional expenses such as therapy, help around the house, childcare, etc. Many individuals suffer trauma that leaves them unable to work either temporarily or permanently. 

People can seek payments for how an injury has affected their lives during a personal injury case. To learn about the recoverable damages in your specific case, it is best to speak with an experienced Williams personal injury attorney.

Choosing the Right Lawyer for Your Case

It's possible we may not be the right Williams auto accident attorney for your needs, and this is entirely understandable. Regardless, we'd like to share some advice with you about how you can find a trustworthy Williams car accident attorney. 

The following things are essential to look for when deciding on the best lawyer to represent your case:

  • Experience - Your lawyer should have ample experience dealing with cases like yours. You can check to see if your attorney knows what they are doing by looking at the settlements and verdicts they have obtained in the past. Most lawyers have these listed on their websites. You should also feel free to ask an attorney about their settlements and verdicts. A good lawyer should be happy to share how they've helped their clients.
  • Reputation - Knowing that your accident attorney has a good reputation in their community is essential. Thankfully, this is easier than ever to check because of the internet. Simply visit an attorney's profile on Avvo, LinkedIn, Google, or Facebook and read the public reviews.
  • Preparedness - You should know that your attorney is ready to do everything they can to win your case. While most injury cases are settled outside the courtroom, many lawyers will take low-ball offers to avoid a trial. Ask your attorney if they are comfortable with the idea of taking your case to court. Often, their response will tell you a lot about whether or not they are truly prepared for a severe injury case.
