Car Accidents in Willows, CA

According to City-Data.com, Willows has a lower-than-average rate of car accidents. This is likely due to the smaller population and the city's spread compared to more congested big cities. It is essential for those driving in the area to continue to be alert and watch out for road hazards and individuals who drive under the influence, and distracted drivers. The main city center poses the most dangers in car accidents, and accidents in this area often cause residents to contact a Willows auto accident attorney.

The largest major city in Willows is Sacramento. It is a 75-mile drive, making it a bit far for many people to consider driving into the city daily for work. However, some commute part-time and perhaps work at home or a local office. Accidents on the highways between Willows and Sacramento are sadly all-too-common and can be a severe concern for anyone who spends much time on the road.

What to Do if You're Involved in a Car Accident in or Around Willows

The first and most important thing you can do after an auto accident is to get any medical treatment you need. You do not want to risk your safety and long-term health by putting this off. In addition, by letting the emergency room check you for injuries, you'll have documentation if your accident turns into a severe case.

In addition to obtaining medical treatment, ensure you get details about the accident. If you're unable to gather this information yourself, have someone help. You want to ensure you have contact information for anyone else involved and witnesses. In addition, call the local police and ensure they record the accident in a police report.

Finally, before you talk to your insurance company or the insurer of any other drivers involved, reach out to a Willows car accident lawyer first.

Why Should You Hire a Sacramento Attorney?

Our law firm is located in Sacramento, a short drive from Willows. While it can seem inconvenient to hire a lawyer who doesn't live directly in Willows, several reasons for hiring a lawyer from Sacramento make sense.

First, the best and brightest lawyers are often found in larger cities, and we think that is the case for us. By operating in Sacramento, we have access to a more extensive client base in the "big city," and we are a short drive away from many other communities.
