Williams Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
I’m Ed Smith, a Williams personal injury lawyer and the founder of AutoAccident.com. I represent people from Williams who’ve suffered serious injuries during accidents.
My firm deals solely with major injury cases. While we focus on severe trauma, we handle a variety of accident types. Some of the accident types we deal with include:
- Car Collisions
- Trucking Crashes
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Crashes
- Pedestrian/Vehicle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Medical Malpractice
- Wrongful Death
- Product Liability
- Dog Bite Injuries
I have a reputation as a “personal” personal injury lawyer. This is because I always prioritize interacting with my clients on a personal level. I have suffered severe injuries myself, and I know first-hand what it is like to have your life interrupted by an injury. The emotional and mental stress that injuries can have impacts the lives of accident survivors and their families. I find that if I establish a personal relationship with my clients, I can better understand how their injury has affected them.
By showing care and compassion to my clients, I find that I can more effectively prepare their case to negotiate with insurance companies and, if necessary, argue for their rights in court. While some lawyers prefer to have a strictly professional relationship with the people they represent, I think of my law firm as a family. If we are representing you, that makes you a part of it.Wrongful Death Cases
Throughout my career, I have worked with many families that have lost a loved one because of a preventable accident. I have seen the immense emotional damage that wrongful death accidents can cause and am well aware of the financial hardships that come with the loss of a loved one. I believe that grieving families deserve financial stability and that responsible parties should be held accountable for their negligence. My job is to help people recover the payments they are owed so that they can heal both financially and personally after such a traumatic event.Representing Williams Residents
The residents of Williams are lucky to live where they do. 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 as well as 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 area.
While Williams is a great place to live, it has traffic just like any other city. Unfortunately, where there is traffic, there is also the risk of traumatic collisions. Additionally, because Williams is located in an agricultural hub, there are many large trucks carrying produce shipments on local highways. While residents are usually careful drivers, there have been over 150 traumatic car accidents reported within Williams city limits over the past ten years.Why Would I Hire a Sacramento Lawyer?
Although I have thoroughly enjoyed Williams every time I’ve visited, my office and home are located in Sacramento. It is likely that you are wondering why you would hire an attorney who lives an hour’s drive away when you could have someone from your immediate area. Many people ask this question, and there are a few key answers.
Firstly, if you have suffered a serious injury, it is essential to have a Williams car accident lawyer who works exclusively on cases like yours. Personal injury law is complicated and the more experienced your lawyer is with handling major injury cases, the better they can ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, running a law firm in a low-population city means having a smaller client base and not being able to specialize in my practice. Being based in Sacramento has allowed me to deal with severe injuries exclusively for over three decades.
Secondly, it is important to know that your lawyer has the resources necessary to do everything they can for your case. Unfortunately, many quality attorneys from small towns have had to relocate to larger cities because of economic pressure. This means that finding an attorney with the necessary resources to take on a major injury case can be difficult in rural areas.What Can I Recover?
Many people know that injuries are expensive, but don’t realize just how far-reaching the damages can really be. People who’ve suffered injuries often need to pay for medical bills as well as additional expenses such as therapy, help around the house, childcare, and more. Many individuals suffer trauma that leaves them unable to work either temporarily or permanently. During a personal injury case, people are able to seek payments for all the different ways that an injury has affected their lives. 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
It’s possible that you don’t think I’m the right Williams auto accident attorney for your needs. This is completely understandable. Regardless, I’d like to share some advice with you about how you can find a trustworthy Williams car accident attorney. The following things are important 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 taking a look at the settlements and verdicts that they have obtained in the past. Most lawyers have these listed on their website. You should also feel free to ask an attorney about their settlements and verdicts in person. A good lawyer should be happy to share with you about how they’ve helped their clients.
- Reputation - It is important to know that your attorney has a good reputation in their community. 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 of 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.
