CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

Woodland Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

Woodland Car Accidents

Surrounded by an ocean of farmland, Woodland, California is what most people imagine when you mention small-town, America. A walk down Main Street provides an opportunity to window shop in dozens of locally-owned shops and restaurants. The employees inside don't live very far away, as there are friendly neighborhoods seemingly around every corner, and more than 20 public parks scattered in between.

Living in Woodland, CA

Despite its ever-growing population, currently more than 55,000 people, Woodland still maintains a small-town atmosphere. It's common to see people walking or riding their bicycles from place to place. Passing through the middle of the city are two major highways, State Route 113, and Interstate 5. These through-ways bring a large amount of automobile traffic to the area, and when combined with Woodland’s small, dense community a real danger is presented to its pedestrians.

Car Accident Statistics in Woodland

For instance, in 2012 there were six automobile-related fatalities in Woodland, involving seven different vehicles and ten people. Of those six accidents, two of them were related to drunk drivers, and two of them had pedestrians involved.

The numbers for 2013 aren't much better. That year, there were four automobile-related fatalities in Woodland, involving three different vehicles and four people. Of those three accidents, two of them were related to drunk drivers, and two of them had pedestrians involved.

Being so close to the State Capitol, just 15 miles away, means that this large amount of thorough traffic is practically unavoidable. But is there more that could be done to protect the people living here every day?

Why Hire a Woodland Personal Injury Lawyer?

Injuries can permanently affect people’s lives. Recovering from an injury can be physically, emotionally and financially difficult.
